Cupid Crashes Dinner Dates in Downtown Santa Monica Over Valentine's Day Weekend

SANTA MONICA, CA (January 26, 2016) – A busy Valentine’s Day Weekend awaits in Santa Monica... one of marathon runners, avid spectators, and yes – a divine mythological presence. This year, on Saturday, Feb. 13 – Valentine's Day Eve – between 6 p.m. and 9 p.m., Downtown Santa Monica, Inc. will unleash Cupid to frolic the streets of Downtown Santa Monica with presents for unsuspecting couples. The Grecian god of desire plans to pop in to randomly selected restaurants to surprise lucky couples with a $50 gift card toward their Valentine’s dinner.


The entirety of DTSM's surging culinary community is in the running, spanning notable new concepts, celebrity chefs, and iconic standbys. In classic mythology fashion, Cupid will be seen sporting traditional Grecian attire and his iconic bow and arrow. Coupled diners displaying an outpouring of love will be fortunate to be hit with Cupid's arrow and receive a gift of gratitude, courtesy of Downtown Santa Monica, Inc.
