Date Night Idea: An evening at the Hollywood Bowl

Date Night in So Cal!

Date Night in So Cal!

Date Night… I know for many this is almost an impossible feat. My husband and I try to find the time, and a babysitter to head out on one, but it’s pretty hard to make it happen. We usually try to head out somewhere once a month. In the summer, we are always looking for fun and different ideas, and when Verizon invited us to be their guest at the Playboy Jazz Festival we jumped at the opportunity. We’ve had the opportunity to attend concerts at the Hollywood Bowl and it’s been quite the experience. If you are willing to brave the crowds, there is nothing like listening to music under the stars. You can bring your own food, drinks, blanket and have a wonderful evening out. The only downside is finding parking. If you’re willing to park and ride, your evening will be much more enjoyable. Tickets usually start at $15 and are pretty darn affordable. They usually  are only a few dollars more than going to the movies, plus you can pack a picnic and enjoy an evening of music under the stars. To check out the upcoming shows head here.

Heading out for a night on the town is kind of a rare treat.  After the kids head to bed, we put on our own music, head outside and enjoy the stars along with take out. We create our own “Hollywood Bowl” experience at home, thanks to FiosSoCal. We listen to their digital music  stations, since it’s a little hard to get a decent radio signal where we live. We listen to everything from the Jazz Station to the 90’s station to the what I like to call the Spa Station(Easy Listening). If you can’t head out on the town, you have to improvise sometime, and we sure do.

If you can make it out on the town, I really recommend checking out the Hollywood Bowl Experience. It is a really affordable date night experience if you plan accordingly. Plus don’t you want to use that picnic basket? We received one as a gift way back when we were fist married, and I love anytime I have the opportunity to use it. Here is your chance!
