This Week’s Edition {eat. shop. play. explore.}

First off, we’d like to wish our very own Tanisha a very Happy Birthday today!  She will be spending the weekend up in Los Olivos with her husband (sans baby, for the first time!) and is looking forward to checking out some of the great parts in the northern 805 region!

I don’t know about you, but a nice, relaxing afternoon in the sunshine with a glass of wine in my hands and snacks within reach… that’s sounding pretty amazing right about now.  The husband and I are meeting up with some friends and coworkers to lounge at Malibu Wines this weekend [and also to watch that one lady who loves to do interpretive dance to the sound of the live music].local love wineWe will see where the night takes us, but will most likely stay for the ever-popular Sips n’ Giggles Comedy Show later that evening!  If you haven’t been, PLEASE take our advice and make sure you RSVP here.  Tickets are $5 at the door, but you must respond online beforehand in order to reserve your spot.  The jokes are great, but they get even funnier as the wine goes down..!

Tanisha says she can’t wait to visit the Los Olivos General Store when she takes her local vacay this weekend!  From the adorable vintage gas pumps, to the one-of-a-kind merchandise, this is a super-cute one-stop-shop.  They are an active presence on Instagram, and always post the cutest photos!  You should follow them @losolivosgeneralstore 🙂

Hayley is traveling to Mammoth Mountain this weekend for a little snow + ride sesh [and will no doubt be burning some cals on the slopes] — even though it feels like summer down here, don’t forget that it’s still winter pretty much everywhere else!

Meanwhile, Brett and I are taking advantage of this amazing Date Night deal at The Grove: complimentary valet parking, 2 movie tickets (with reserved seats!), and a 3-course prix-fixe dinner offered at one of their amazing restaurants — all for only $35/person! [BONUS: we bought a TravelZoo deal, which threw in free popcorn and saved us $15 — woopwoop!].  We will be seeing American Sniper and dining at Maggiano’s — the dinner even comes with wine, so you KNOW it’s going to be a good night.

grovedatenightThis deal ends Thursday, February 19, and is only valid for movies that are nominated for Academy Awards — so don’t miss out!


Want to mountain bike the amazing trails in the area, but feeling a bit intimidated?  (I mean, I don’t own a bike jersey or cool mountain bike glove things, so I’m already feeling a bit under prepared).  Check out CORBA {The Concerned Off-Road Bicyclists Association} this Saturday for a FREE Basic Skills clinic!

Made it to Wildwood ParkThe Introduction to Mountain Biking Skills Clinic is held the first Saturday of each month from 9:00 am to 12:00 pm in Malibu Creek State Park. It is free of charge to all participants, and no reservations are needed. A discussion of back-country preparedness, shared use etiquette, and simple maintenance tips precede several skills stations. These include proper seated rider position, controlled braking and slow speed technical maneuvering, pedaling cadence/gear use, and proper riding position and technique for climbing and descending.  They ask that you please arrive no later than 8:45 am to sign in and have your bike checked.  Sounds like a blast!

Join their MeetUp group here to stay updated on other mountain biking events!

Can’t wait to see how you spend your weekend!  Tag us on Instagram @locallove805 and #LL805!
