Tired of the same Father's Day routine? Make papa proud and have a great time in these places. WARNING: side affects include uncontrollable smiling.
Best venue for top quality stand up shows and live podcast tapings. Also one of only places I know where I can hug a giant Han Solo cut out.
Perfect if you're in a mood for a throwback. This drive-in movie theater projects modern movies with admission that's 60% less than what a typical movie theater ticket might cost.
Cool little venue for Indie films and film festivals that provide great snack and comfy seating for make-out sessions.
They boast on of the best steaks I've ever eaten. So tender and meaty that it's perfectly fine without any added salt or sauce. I'm also a big fan of Suzanne Tracht and impressed at what a great female chef role model she is.
My favorite hiking spot in the LA area. Not too crowded and yet just minutes from the city. Kind of romantic too for an active date idea.
Great coastal bike path for when you want that ocean breeze to hit you as you ride. Great for serious bikers as well as families and anybody on training wheels.
Feel like you're ten again in this quirky, glow-in-the-dark mini golf course! No need to be Tiger Woods.
Oxtail, foie gras, sliders....leave the vegans with the valet guy.
This has been a favorite place of mine since I was a kid.
Great indoor and outdoor basketball courts as well as a nearby golf course. Even spotted a few celebs here getting their sweat on here.
Took a year to get seated but it's all forgiven because of their truffle fries.
A great beach side park, picnic area, rec center, and even an awesome bike path. Bring a surf board too, its tempting to catch a wave!
A literal "sausage fest"! Fast service, delectable bratwursts and almost any kind of sausage imaginable, and open past midnight! If only they could tuck me in my bed after my food coma!
This place is a delicious sausage fest in every sense of the word! (Get your head out of the gutter..)
My very favorite Santa Monica comfort food fix! Gluten free mac n cheese that I didn't even know was gluten free!!! Mind. Blown.
BEST comedy venue in town! Big name headliners and even novices like myself perform here. Great beer and wine menu too incase you need the comedians to get funnier.
