Montebello Wine and Dine Restaurants

Dining out is a billion-dollar industry and while there are many different levels of restaurants, most of us tend to stay on the lower end of the spectrum–the McDonalds, Chipotles and Outback’s of the world. However, it doesn’t hurt to get dressed up everyone once in a while and go out for a fine dining experience. Upscale restaurants can cost over $50 per person, but if you work hard for your money, why not spoil yourself a little. Here are three great fine dining restaurants to try near your apartment. Have fun and enjoy your meal.

DIY Ballot: make the Oscar ceremony interactive by creating your own ballot and having your guest vote for each category. Compile the results and read them alongside the actual awards.

 

Oscar Shaped Cookies: if you are having an Oscar themed party, you might as well make a few treats shaped like the trophy. Go with cookies since they are the easiest to make.

 

Popcorn bar: add a popcorn bar with various flavors and topping into the menu for your party. Nothing says “night at the movies” like popcorn and your guest will be sure to love it.

Get Adventurous: try something challenging like rock climbing, going on a hike, or jumping in the water for a canoe ride. This of course will have to be done on the weekend, but spend the day trying new things and being adventurous together—your bond will grow even stronger.

 

Go to a Carnival: anytime you can act like a kid with your significant other, you should do it. Find a carnival on your next date night and run around without a care in the world. Grab some cotton candy, play games and share a kiss on the Ferris wheel.

Box sizes: using the correct box sizes is essential to packing the right way. Heavy items should go in small boxes, while light items like pillows or linens should go in the larger boxes.

 

 

No empty space: take advantage of all the space in your boxes by filling the gaps with clothes, towels or linens. You’ll save time unpacking and money on less boxes.

 

 

Pack by rooms: do not mix items from different rooms in the same box. If you keep things separate unpacking will be a breeze.
