Go Go’ers of the femme persuasion, hold on to your fishnets.
You’ll be excited to learn that according to Leap Year tradition, you can ask your special fella — or really, just ANY guy walking down the street — to marry you today. And if he refuses, he has to buy you 12 pairs of gloves!
Don’t ask about the gloves. This is Tradition Speaking, not Ms. Go Go.
Even if you…
a) Don’t need a special day to propose
b) Don’t need to propose
c) Don’t need a guy
d) Don’t need gloves
e) Have proposed to PLENTY of people, thank you very much
f) ARE a guy
…there are still LOTS of reasons to celebrate the Day That Isn’t Really Here.
With the Fun That Is.

Everyone’s favorite tiny tropical watering hole is offering a heap big thirst-quenching drink with the disarmingly straightforward name of Tiki Ti Leap Year Special. It’s $29 and intended for two (or more) lush lifers so it lends itself perfectly to the marriage proposal theme.

Tiki Ti isn’t revealing just what liquor(s) makes the Special “special” but the drink allegedly used to be served in a glass boot.
All the better to leap with, my dear.
