15. Shark Lagoon Friday Nights

Baby Shark Eggs
Originally uploaded by 365 Cheap Dates
Get up close and personal with the ocean's ultimate predator!! The Aquarium of the Pacific in Long Beach is hosting a FREE Shark Lagoon Night on every Friday 6-9 PM. Not only will you see all kinds of sharks, but also TOUCH the bamboo sharks (bring your camera!). A live band performs every week, with this Friday night, Nov 6th, being jazz music. A snack and beverage bar is onsite, but I suggest going right before dinner when it opens at 6 PM or stop by after dinner. There are plenty of eateries and things to do nearby at The Pike or on Pine Street.

UPDATE 01/07/10: As of today, the calendar shows it's free EVERY Friday night through May 7th.

UPDATE 01/28/10: @AquariumPacific informed me that this event is almost every Friday. I see that the current schedule shows that the last Friday of the month in January 1/29 and February 2/26 have been replaced by "Night Dive".

UPDATE 04/27/10: If Fridays don't work for you, get 2-for-1 admission anytime thru May 19th with this BOGO coupon (print HERE). REMINDER: LAST free Shark Lagoon Night on the calendar is May 7th!

UPDATE 10/01/10: Free Shark Lagoon Night is back for the rest of 2010! It's almost every Friday, so check the online calendar. Thanks to @matthewdiluzio for the reminder! Click HERE for the schedule.

Approximate cost of creative date idea = FREE + $7 parking.
Actual value of the cheap date idea = $48 total ($24 per regular admission ticket!).
