Let's say for the sake of argument that you're a romantic. No, wait: Let's say that to forestall yet another argument about how often you do or don't say "I love you" to your spouse, you'll pretend to be a romantic.

Imagine climbing the 198 steps as very physical foreplay, with the climax a spectacular, 360-degree view of the city from 170 feet in the air, while that silvery moon sails through the night sky. Oh, you can practically hear the panties dropping. The tower is open from 6 to 10 p.m., and admission is $3 to $5. Kids younger than five are free — keep this last bit in mind for next summer, if you catch our drift.
