Ballroom & Dining Room Dance Series

Cost: $40 per person

The Rundown: Dinner and dancing are a traditional standard of date nights everywhere. However, it's probably not the foxtrot or waltz and a prix fixe dinner - but it can be.

Tavern at Lark Creek's Ballroom & Dining Room series incorporates dancing lessons, a different style each week, followed by a seasonally inspired three-course dinner.

The inspiration for the series is a throwback to the town's past: Larkspur's Volunteer Fire Department hosted outdoor dances from 1913 through the 1940s at what they called the Rose Bowl. The popular dances (my grandparents loved going) were located a block away from where Tavern at Lark Creek stands, but alas, all that's left of the Rose Bowl is a grove of trees.

So after a 60-plus year hiatus, Tavern at Lark Creek is taking over. So grab a pip and some snazzy dancing shoes and shake a leg up to Marin.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
