Steam up your windows with your date at the only drive-in movie theater left in LA proper. Order food from Electric Dusk Drive-In’s Snack Shack, bring your own hooch, and watch (or don’t, WINK WINK) classic movies up on the big screen from the comfort of your car.
La Cañada Flintridge
This massive botanical garden (over 150 acres!) got even cooler when it opened its restaurant, Maple (run by hotshot Patina Group), where you can get a righteous weekend brunch before you take in all the foliage and blooms. Chef Philip Mack -- who formerly helmed Malibu Cafe’s kitchen -- recently launched a new summer menu, which includes dishes like fried chicken and beignets, summer berry crepes, and a brunch board of seasonal fruits and veggies, burrata, honeycomb, house-made jam, and biscuits to soak it all up. Also on offer? Gourmet picnic boxes designed for Descanso Gardens’ summer concert series.
