Do you have a date this weekend? KCET this month shared their list top 10 list of "10 Cheap Summer Dates," but we know there's so much more. Complete with a map, KCET's choices are a mix of the most talked-about activities -- Cinespia, Getty, a hike in Griffith Park -- and some ones not normally thought of like going geocaching (how nerdily awesomesauce!) or heading to Grand Performances in downtown. Of course, this is Los Angeles, where dating is supposedly extremely hard, so the options are bountiful. One of our favorite recommendations is grabbing a flight of local wine, usually $10 to $15 per, at Malibu Family Wines, Sip Tasting Room or Cornell Winery, all three of which that are located in the Santa Monica Mountains. If you've got ideas, share below.
