Weekend Love from Joe Dates


I know it was a long week but we made it people! It is now time to enjoy our weekend. So grab your mate or date and go hit these streets.  You might wanna keep it simple but I’m all for stepping out of the box and trying something new. This week just like every week I am providing plenty of options.  If your weekend sucks then blame yourself because Joe Dates has been handing out these assists every Friday like Magic Johnson.  Now I post the different events on here but you can always use some creativity and come up with a great date.  If there is a museum on here, why not have a picnic at the museum.  Make sure you have your picnic kit on deck.  Bring some wine. Yeah drinking in public is illegal, so hide it well (like me) or pour the wine in a different container. Don’t forget your corkscrew! 

For those foodies out there that love to eat and try different types of food, please go check out this blog http://losangelelust.blogspot.com/2013/08/best-dishes-in-la.html. I promise after looking on that blog for 30 seconds you will be ready to stuff your face.  I just came up with a date idea based on the food I just saw from that blog!  Here it is, say you and your date love tacos, try a bunch of different taco spots to see who is number 1 in the city. That sounds like the perfect date to me! YOU’RE WELCOME! And here is what’s going on this weekend.
