There’s just something about Downtown San Diego at twilight. If you’re looking to mix up your classic dinner-and-a-movie date night, the Downtown San Diego real estate pros at 92101 Urban Living have a few creative suggestions.
1. Explore your creativity with a paint-and-wine date.
Even if you two don’t think you’re artistic, you’ll have a blast at this painting class hosted by 98 Bottles in Little Italy, San Diego. No experience is necessary. A professional artist guides you with step-by-step instructions while you sip wine and chat as your masterpieces unfold. You may be painting a rendering of your teacher’s design or a classic work of art. You’ll also learn the fascinating history of each piece. The class fee covers the cost of all supplies, including paints, brushes, canvases, and aprons. Food and wine are available for purchase. Classes span three hours.
2. Delve into a romantic play.
Cozy up at the Old Globe’s small theater-in-the-round, and become immersed in the magic of Shakespeare. “As You Like It” revolves around Rosalind, the daughter of an exiled duke. She falls in love with Orlando, the disinherited son of her father’s friend. Her uncle, Duke Frederick, banishes Rosalind from his court, and she flees to the Forest of Arden. To maintain safety, she disguises herself as a boy. Accompanied by her cousin Celia, she joins her father in the forest. We’ll let you explore the rest of the riveting story. Unlike some of Shakespeare’s works, this has a happy ending, just as you like it.
3. Feel your hearts throb to the beat of a dance class.
U Fancy Dance in the Gaslamp Quarter is a spacious dance studio that welcomes you with colorful murals, comfy couches, white wood floors, and a large aquarium. Among the variety of classes offered are Salsa, Zumba, Bachata, Samba, and Ballroom. Both group and private lessons are given. A free dance class is offered monthly for first-time students and members. If you’re interested in learning a specific dance style, you can check out the schedule online.
4. Laugh your socks off at a comedy show.
The Gaslamp Comedy Show at the Tipsy Crow is held monthly and receives rave reviews. It’s regarded as the best independently produced comedy venue in downtown and showcases top-notch talent. The event takes place in the underground level of the historic Spencer-Ogden building, and you and your cutie will adore the classic décor, quality cocktails, and craft beer. Service is stellar, and the food is fabulous. The Tipsy Crow also does Monday Game Night.
5. Be enchanted by a planetarium sky show.
Head to the Reuben H. Fleet Science Center for creative interactive exhibits and breathtaking sky shows. Eight galleries offer fun activities, such as touching a tornado and creating colored shadows. The Dome Theater hosts large-screen projections, enveloping viewers in spellbinding images. An astronomer-led sky show is held on the first Wednesday of every month. Each program explores a different topic, with a tour of the San Diego sky as it currently appears. After the presentation, you can view the twinkling sky through the planetarium’s telescopes.
