Wine and Dine Walking Tours is celebrating our one year anniversary! Over the course of our first year in business we have have the privilege of hosting a myriad of birthday parties, and we are now SO excited it is finally our turn! While going over all the many possible ways to celebrate a birthday we were inspired to compile a list of unusual ways to celebrate your birthday in Los Angeles!
5. Karaoke Party
If you live in LA, you are lucky enough to live in a city that offers private Karaoke rooms in Koreatown! Kick your year off right by watching your friends belt out their favorite tunes. Bonus- there are plenty of great Korean BBQ near all of the Karaoke rooms to enjoy some delicious food before you show off your sweet singing skills.
4.Camp on Catalina Island
Invite some friends to join you on an adventure in Catalina Island. Camping is by far the least expensive option for accommodations on the island, however, if camping isn’t for you, there are plenty of hotel options as well. Just be sure to make a reservation far enough in advance! The island is small and places book up quickly! Spend your birthday hiking, boating, parasailing, or golf carting around this beautiful island. In the evening there are plenty of restaurants and nightlife to keep you entertained!
3. Take a Trip to Pismo Beach and Go Four Wheeling
Pismo Beach is just about three hours (give or take depending on where you are coming from) from LA. Head up to this cute little fishing town for a birthday to remember. Aside from walking on the beach and dining in the cute restaurants you can also rent ATVs and hit the sand dunes! If you are planning on staying a little longer you can also rent kayaks or go wind surfing. It is an experience you won’t soon forget!
2. The Magic Castle
This one can be a little tricky, as you need to be a member or at least be with a member to get in. However, an evening at the mansion overlooking Hollywood is worth pulling a few strings for. Be aware, this is not an inexpensive option! There is an entrance fee, valet fees, and a mandatory one meal per person. As long as you plan for that, you are in for a real treat. Enjoy a gourmet meal in their highly sought after restaurant before watching magical acts all over the castle. Make a request at the enchanted piano, Irma, who needs no human help to play any song you can think of- just be sure to ask nicely! Have a drink at any (or all) of the many bars located all over the mansion. You will be talking about the amazing birthday you spent at The Magic Castle for years to come!
1. Book a Food and Wine Tour
Call us biased, but we think there is nothing more fun than exploring the city while enjoying great food and wine with friends! Don’t get us wrong, we love a good bar crawl, but consider a food and wine tour the bar crawl’s classier cousin. Instead of spending your birthday dinner at just one location, a food and wine tour allows you to enjoy a continually changing scenery. Enjoy food, wine, and friends while discovering new hidden gems around your own city! Connect with local business owners and return in the future as a familiar face. Over the next year you can visit the same places again and remember all the wonderful times you had at your birthday celebration!
