Celebrate Valentine’s Day

Valentine’s Day in the 805

Here it comes! It’s the one day of the year that can bring lovers running into each other’s arms. Or dread to the lonely single. Or sheer panic to the spouse who feels pressure to find the “perfect gift.” That’s right! Valentine’s Day is almost here!

But have no fear. We’ve got great plans for singles and lovebirds alike. And all of them are right in your beautiful backyard!


Celebrate the old fashioned way with a romantic meal!

Moqueca Brazilian Cuisine: Called by food critics, “Heaven in a Clay Pot,” Moqueca is a perfect restaurant for the passionate couple. Not only so you have exotic, tropic drinks with the romantic view of Channel Islands Harbor but your taste buds will be titillated as, well, foreplay!
