Mayor Thomas M. Menino today announced Boston's Valentine's Day shoppers and diners will enjoy free parking at all city parking meters Thursday.
It's not all about romance - the "gift" is mean for local businesses to make up for lost time during the weekend blizzard, which shut down the city for two days.
“Whether you’re showering yourself, a friend or a special someone with love this Valentine’s Day, we want to make it as easy as possible for residents and visitors to spend some time and money at Boston businesses and restaurants tomorrow,” Mayor Menino said. “Get out there and share the love!”
