ARTS DISTRICT—After their first successful "No Pressure No Shame" social dating experiment a few months back, Citizens of Culture and I Love Creatives have yet again joined forces for the greater good of Los Angeles singles. This time, the cultural curators have coordinated a dinner at Daily Dose Cafe (1820 Industrial Street) this Tuesday from 8-10pm. Engage in a lively debate about "the rules" of dating and courtship and the ways of sparking and maintaining romance while you enjoy a lovely meal and drinks courtesy of ROK. Stop swiping left/right and go have a little face-to-face human interaction (a nice dinner doesn't hurt either). Buy your tickets here now to get them for $48, or snag last minute seats for $50 after today.
CENTURY CITY—Got the creative urge for an artistic, hands-on project this week? Westfield Century City (10250 Santa Monica Boulevard) has you covered Wednesday with their Paint Night, part of the shopping center's Drink Creatively series. For a $45 ticket fee (buy yours here), guests to the 7pm event will snack on tableside treats by Obica Mozzerella Bar in the dining terrace and take in a tutorial from artist Kim Carpluk to paint their own mini masterpiece. Sip and mingle with other crafty locals and take home a cute new creation.
