NorCal date ideas

Hi. I will soon be asking SoCal people in a few weeks.
But there's someone "potentially" special will be visiting in 2 weeks or so (no date set on her part).

So.. I need to come up with some plans.
Where should I take her and any restaurants you guys recommend?
How does Monterey aquarium sound? She's a 29 year old girl from so cal..
Thanks!!

Potentially special? How special...or I guess what I'm asking is, how much are you willing to drop? Two weeks is too short for a reservation at The French Laundry, but Manresa might be able to fit you in, and they're running a special menu just now.

for general restaurant recommendations, refer to yelp... it's your best friend in planning a nice dinner...

the monterey aquarium is a good drive from the bay, you can spend a good amount of time there, but there's not a TON of stuff to do there afterwards... it would be a good weekend getaway if you want to have a relaxing low key lounge time in monterey/carmel.

Monterey is good idea. I've pulled some chicks after taking them there. Santa Cruz is cool too. Alexanders in Cupertino is pretty baller, but make sure she is special before you drop that much on her. In other words, i wouldn't take a girl there until I was getting some from her 4 sure.

Budget $$$$ = La Foret in San Jose
$$ = California Cafe in Los Gatos

Bring her to Calistoga for Spa. You can also rent a glider (w/ pro pilot) and soar above Napa Valley there. I have to warn you about motion sickness due to turbulence though. It's hard to think romance when you are trying not to
