Boats are like rich parents, in that they will float you for a few years while you drift around playing acoustic guitar and working on your coming of age novel. Live the dream with this Groupon.
- $89 for a champagne harbor cruise with dessert for two ($244 value)
Passengers board the Sunflower, a six-person, 30-foot sailboat, for a cruise—supplied with bottomless champagne and bar snacks—through Alamitos Bay and along Naples Island and the Belmont Peninsula. Customers can choose to indulge in chocolate truffles with raspberry drizzle and fruit with chocolate fondue back at the wine room, where they receive 10% off bottles of wine.
CA Wine Room
A warm breeze wafts over the iron chairs and benches gathered under palm trees. Lights glow on the airy porches of the buildings across the courtyard. Inside, guests clink wineglasses under a spiral of white string lights, surrounded by bistro tables topped with floral arrangements and tall wooden wine racks. CA Wine Room's outdoor and indoor seating immerses visitors in an intimate atmosphere inspired by the state's coastal and Spanish roots.
CA Wine Room's wine director, Noah Buffet, extends this local focus to his menu: he features only California wines and specializes in smaller batches from family wineries. The selection spans cabernets, chardonnays, and zinfandels from the coast of Mendocino County, Napa Valley, and the foothills of the Sierra Nevadas, and there's a handful of California craft beers on tap as well. Live music often complements drinking here: guest musicians, including pianists, monkeys with accordions, and folk bands, play each Thursday, and the lounge hosts live jazz every Saturday night.
