Anyone up for overeating this Valentine's Day? How about overeating and getting married? Admit it, it's kind of a turn-on. Well here's your big chance.

The Fargo Kiwanis Club will hold its 51st annual "Pancake Karnival" next Saturday at the Fargodome, and any lucky couple inspired by the romantic magic of a feeding frenzy to make a long-term commitment -- on Valentine's Day no less -- will score a free tuxedo and wedding bands.

The feed itself could actually be a great thing to do this V-Day. Road trip! Food-eating spectacle! Cheap eats! It could also be your chance to witness history being made. The club hopes to break last year's record of serving 34,818 cakes. Holy Jesus God.

And it'll only set you back five bucks.

P.S. Damn, Fargo has a dome?!
