Or was it Cupid's arrow on Sunday, February 14th?
Watching a magic show at the Magicopolis in Santa Monica is definitely a unique and creative date idea for Valentine's Day. This performance includes a buffet, champagne toast a party favor- not a bad deal for 25 bucks. Get 50% discount off the $50 regular tickets on Goldstar.com. Being new, this particular event has not yet been rated, but the venue is 2.9 out of 4 stars overall.
The public parking garage nearby is $3 flat after 6 PM, but the show does start at 6 PM. Or make it a full day of fun in Santa Monica: the weekly Farmer's Market in the morning (see Cheap Date Idea #50) and to the aquarium at the Santa Monica Pier in the afternoon (see Cheap Date Idea #84), which is only 0.6 miles or 13 minute walk away from the magic shop.
Approximate cost of creative date idea = $25 Per Person + $6 Service Fee.
Actual value of the cheap date idea = $50 Total.
