Lighten the mood and share a few laughs by taking in a comedy show at West Hollywood’s inventive UCB Theatre. Founded by the comedy troupe Upright Citizens Brigade (which includes SNL alum Amy Poehler), the intimate UCB Theatre features cutting-edge stand-up and improv comedy from both up-and-coming and established performers in the comedy world. An audience favorite is Asssscat, which involves a group of performers improvising scenes based off short monologues.

The Gelato Bar and Espresso Caffé
Gelato puts a modern, international spin on the classic date of sharing milkshakes at the soda fountain. A favorite Italian dessert, gelato is denser, more intensely flavored and less fattening than ice cream. The good folks at The Gelato Bar in Studio City have cooked up a wide range of gelato and sorbet flavors to suit nearly every taste – from traditional chocolate to honey fig marscarpone. The Gelato Bar’s cozy, quirky décor provides a charming décor for getting to know your date over a cup of stracciatella.
The Gelato Bar and Espresso Caffe – Studio City, 4342 ½ Topanga Ave., Studio City, CA, (818) 487-1717; Los Feliz – 1936 Hillhurst Ave., Los Angeles, CA, (323) 668-0606, gelatobar-la.com
The Egyptian Theatre
Cuddling up with your main squeeze (and some popcorn) to catch a flick is always a good idea, but in L.A., it’s a great idea. A Mecca for film enthusiasts, Los Angeles offers some of America’s most intriguing movie theatres, such as the historic Egyptian Theatre. Characterized by its opulent Egyptian revival architecture, the Egyptian offers a premium movie-viewing experience that you just don’t get in the typical strip mall multi-plex. The Egyptian currently shows classic films in its Forever Hollywood series, which features exclusive interviews from big-name stars.
Egyptian Theatre, 6712 Hollywood Blvd., Hollywood, CA, (323) 466-3456, egyptiantheatre.com
Tucked away in the San Jacinto Mountains is the alpine-covered paradise of Idyllwild. A two-hour drive east of Los Angeles, Idyllwild provides a peaceful romantic getaway from the hustle and bustle of city life. A rustic ski resort in the winter and a hiking and mountain climbing destination in the warmer months, Idyllwild offers plenty of opportunities to explore the relatively untouched wilderness with your sweetie. When you tire of venturing forth into the wild, Idyllwild has a nice selection of art galleries, coffee shops and restaurants.
