A Date Night at the Theatre

It can be easy to get in a rut when it comes to date night.  We can easily find ourselves going to the same restaurant or seeing yet another movie, because that’s what we’ve always done and it doesn’t take much thought or planning.

But we challenge you to change that this weekend.  We are lucky enough to have the Civic Arts Plaza in Thousand Oaks — one of the largest performing arts centers between Los Angeles and San Francisco. There are more than 400 performances annually, including Broadway musicals, dance companies, popular entertainers, concerts, and more!

The Club Everyone’s Been Waiting For {& how you can JOIN NOW}

True story: 98{fd7f0a6624fbd2224f3c60e3404acbd2207eb416c38268e7e97265ebe361b912} of the time I buy wine, I look for the prettiest label.

Sure, I’d love to actually know what I’m buying, where it’s from, and hey, if I’d actually even like how it tastes.  But, as I peruse the wine aisle for the 437th time, I can’t help but go back to my old habits.

But, what if — just what if — there was a wine club that only sourced local wines from the Santa Barbara/Paso Robles area, delivered specialty-curated shipments directly to your door, promising ultra-premium, limited-production wines that you can’t find in grocery stores, at the lowest winery-direct pricing, that also …
