The Church Key
Conversation can sometimes be hard on a first date: you’re nervous, your date is so cute, and neither of you knows how to transition from “how do you like LA?” to something important like “have you finished watching The Wire?” But fear no more, as The Church Key, a quirky spot on Sunset Boulevard is so jam packed with fun, food, chic decor, and just the right amount of spectacle as to keep conversation (and the drinks!) flowing.

There’s something about star gazing that is inherently romantic. Take some time this weekend to go outside and look up – way up – and see the beautiful universe in which we find ourselves. The Griffith Observatory originally opened in 1935, and has a gorgeous historic feel to it that, when coupled with the renovations to the building completed in 2006, produces a childish excitement. Bonus, admission to the Observatory building, grounds, telescopes, and parking is free!
