It’s Motherboy already?

In a move that suggests Mayor Daley is as excited about the prospect of an “Arrested Development” movie as we are, the City of Chicago is presenting a series of Mommy/Son and Daddy/Daughter dances (and ice skating, and a teen dance) in honor of Valentine’s Day. These events will take place in parks across the city, and most cost no more than a few bucks. No word on whether there will be prizes for the most “sympathetic” couples.

The full list is after the jump. Head here for more info.
