For anyone looking to add a little magic to their Valentine’s Day festivities, the Valentine’s Day Escape Reality Magic Show is the perfect blend of magic and entertainment. Steve Spill is the owner and magician behind Magicopolis and has spent a lifetime surrounded by magic. According to Spill, the Valentine’s Day Escape Reality Show is something you won’t want to miss. “Besides a big magic show- floating ladies, mind reading, slight of hand – included in part of the show is a magic class. There’s a party favor bag of magic tricks for everybody. There’s also included a champagne or sparkling cider toast for everyone who comes. We have a magician at the bar doing magic tricks before the show.” The show runs from 8:00 PM to 10:00 PM. For more information, visit: https://magicopolis.com

Malibu Wine Safaris combines wine with adventure to create a unique experience perfect for couples and singles alike. According to Customer Care Lead Molly Philbin, “Malibu Wine Safaris offers multiple tours each day. Each tour takes the guest through Saddlerock Ranch, which is an 1,100-acre vineyard in the Santa Monica Mountains. These tours include guided wine tastings and meeting some of the animals on the property such as Scottish Highland cows, water buffalo, alpacas, llama, zebras, and even a giraffe!” Philbin continues, “We offer five different Safaris tours, so there is a tour that will appeal to everyone!” Tours range between an hour and thirty minutes to two hours long. Since Valentine’s Day falls on a weekday, Philbin suggests booking tickets a week to two weeks in advance. Weekend spots sell out months in advance, so it is recommended to give yourself enough time and plan ahead. For more information about tickets and how to get there, visit: www.lasafaris.com.

When it comes to the Westside, Valentine’s Day is more than just a day for romance; it’s a day to celebrate love in all its forms with the people you care about most.
