Since the holidays get busy, I'll be posting about upcoming events so you can mark your calendars (and plan your date nights in advance). On Thursday, Dec 3rd, 6-8 PM, the Hermosa Beach Mayor will be lighting the 25-foot tall Christmas tree at the Hermosa Beach Pier. In addition to live music, a special visitor will be arriving directly from the North Pole! So bring your cameras to capture this holiday moment! TIP: The parking meters are normally free for 3 hours during the holidays. Come earlier to enjoy a cup of hot chocolate at Cafe Bonaparte in the Hermosa Pier Plaza, which offers outdoor seating with an ocean view (a casual way to sneak in a sunset moment with your date, hint hint).
Approximate value of creative date idea = Free plus $7 for hot chocolate.
Actual cost of the cheap date idea = Priceless.
