Where:Cafe Sevilla Downtown / Gaslamp
Flamenco has been part of the Spanish heart and culture for more than 500 years. It is the passionate, sometimes melancholy music of the gypsies of Andalusia, heavily influenced by the moors of North Africa who ruled Spain for more than 800 years.
Travel to Spain Tonight at Cafe Sevilla! Enjoy a 3-Course Flamenco Dinner for Two with a Bottle of Wine or Sangria. Featuring new performers every week. Reservations are required, please call 877.307.2214.
Where:Roppongi Restaurant and Sushi Bar La Jolla
Roppongi Restaurant & Sushi Bar and Cups Culinary have partnered up to present Parents’ Night Out (PNO), a new series of dinner events for parents in San Diego.
The idea is simple: you drop your child(ren) off at Cups Culinary and from there, you’re free to explore La Jolla for a nice, relaxing evening. While you’re dining at Roppongi and enjoying a delicious 3-Course Prix-Fixe dinner offered exclusively for PNO, your little ones will be entertaining themselves in the Cups Culinary teaching kitchen preparing their own dinner! Each child will be provided with a Sammy’s Woodfired Pizza & Grill pizza kit and the culinary instructors at Cups will supervise and instruct them on how to make their own pizza.
For dessert, they’ll decorate cupcakes, while watching a movie. By the end of the night, we can assure you that you’ll feel like a new person and your little ones will be happy you snuck away for a few hours.
