Date Ideas – A variety of fun date activities for couples to share. The emphasis is on slaying the dinner-and-a-movie dragon.  A short description in the notes provides details about the individual idea listings.

Restaurants – A variety of new and exciting dining experiences. Our listings cover a wide range of establishments, from holes-in-the-wall to themed restaurants to fine dining. The emphasis is on variety.  You’ll find additional details in the notes of individual listings.

  • Listings are sortable in a variety of ways so you can find restaurants and date activities in close proximity to each other.

  • Be sure to check the Google Popular Times Tool when planning your visit. The tool allows you to see when the busiest and slowest days and times are for most establishments.  It’s handy for evaluating estimated wait times.  It is also handy for spontaneous visits to any location when you have to make a plan B. It’s updated in real-time, and it’s pretty accurate!
  • The activities and eating establishments in the Date-a-Base range widely.  Yelp links are provided for additional information.  New locations added as they get vetted.  It’s a work in progress.
  • The Date-a-base is currently limited to the Orange County and Los Angeles areas.
