It’s hard to believe that it’s been nearly 10 years since Christopher and I started dating – our anniversary is actually next month! After being in a relationship for such a long period of time, the need to take time and go on dates is extra important because nights watching movies on the couch can get old, you know what I mean? So when HowAboutWe for Couples launched here in LA recently, I was excited to give it a go as they make planning dates as easy as a click of button.
What I love about HowAboutWe is that they curate dates that you and your significant other can do around your city, with new additions each month. Who wouldn’t want to go on a Guided Japanese Whisky Tour, an Exclusive Bicycle Taco Tour around the city? Or what about a Hiking Yoga in Griffith Park? And of course there may be days when you want to stay in so they even have dates for you and your beau to do right at home! I’m dying to get this Make Your Own Cheese Kit or I’m actually hoping I can convince Christopher to get crafty with an At-Home Piñata Kit!
Anyway, for our first HowAboutWe date, we decided to go on a brunch cruise around Marina Del Rey. Even though we’ve lived in the neighborhood for nearly 3 years we’ve never actually been on the water. It was a beautiful Sunday morning when we arrived on the dock over at Fisherman’s Village and boarded The Entertainer. After greeting us with a glass of champagne, they showed us to our private table located near the breakfast buffet. Coffee, OJ and champagne flowed freely ( hello mimosas! ) while we dined on an herbed egg scramble, fresh seasonal greens salad, crepes, french toast, roasted country potatoes, fresh fruit, an israeli couscous salad and pastries just to name a few. Everything was delicious and needless to say, we were completely stuffed after a few servings.
After our brunch indulgence, we headed up to the top deck to bask in the sun and enjoy to sights as we toured the Marina. It was nice to see everything from a different perspective and take in the fresh air. The Fisherman’s Village seriously looks incredible from the water. Plus, there’s just something about being on a boat that makes you slow down for a moment and enjoy the company you’re with. Which is basically the whole point right?
Since the brunch cruise we’ve also made our way over to Anaheim for an Angels vs. Dodgers game with VIP seats. Seriously the best view! I also just booked an afternoon for us to bike down to Hermosa Beach for some tacos and craft beers. At $24 that’s a total deal. Oh yeah – you get a nice little discount when you’re a HowAboutWe member, not to mention a free date each month. Sounds great right? If you live in LA, Seattle, NYC, Chicago or SF sign up here for $50 off your first date – promise it’ll be memorable. Other cities – they’re coming soon!
