Happy Valentine’s weekend! So ready for dessert deals, classy cocktails, and, of course, plenty of saucy and sweet slices for the pizza-lovers. The heart of downtown (aw!) is the best place to wander with your dinner date, and we have all the deals in one hot spot! Paseo Nuevo is bursting with pretty packages perfect for gifting (seriously crushing on Lush right now!), as well as dining and drink deals at our fun local favorites – Eureka!, PizzaRev, Pascucci, and California Pizza Kitchen. If “Make Reservations!!” never got checked off this week’s to do list, worry not, here’s a few first-come first-served dinner deals happening this weekend.
Eureka! Valentine’s Day Cocktails
Handcrafted cocktails: FBO + It’s Complicated
Beer: My Bloody Valentine Ale (AND a keg with chocolate-raspberry vibes is about to be on tap!)
February 8th – 15th
Eureka! deserves a few more exclamations marks for their current cocktail lineup – The FBO and It’s Complicated stand out from their full bar menu. A blissful mix of Buffalo Trace Bourbon, a house-made strawberry simple-syrup, lemon juice, and chocolate bitters, The FBO (that’s Facebook Official) tastes like a chocolate covered strawberry (can confirm!). For those craving something hot and spicy, It’s Complicated mixes Anchor Junipero gin, beet sumac syrup, and fresh jalapeños. In love yet? All their ingredients come straight from the State Street Farmer’s Market! That’s #LocalLove right there. And beer lovers rejoice – you’ll find a few Vday specials among Eureka’s big and strong selection.
Drop by Eureka! to get your name on the list, then feel free to roam the oh-so-romantic (if we don’t say so ourselves!) twinkling, tree-lined pathways of Paseo Nuevo. Eureka! will text you when you’re table is ready!
California Pizza Kitchen’s Sweet Deal for 2

May we recommend the Rosé?

Weekend Lunch + Dinner Specials
If you’re thinking about complimentary garlic bread, a ravioli sampler, and Cabernet Sauvignon at this romantic spot on State, get there early! Pascucci’s curtained tables-for-two and old Italian charm are straight out of Romantic Date Night 101. They’re another one of our #DinePaseoNuevo restaurants keeping it local! From meat and seafood, to produce and coffee, Santa Barbara businesses – including Santa Barbara Roasting Company and Tri-County Produce and Farmers Market – are feeling the love. And if you already have reservations at one of Santa Barbara’s many amazing Italian restaurants, make yourself a love note: Pascucci’s $21.99 and $11.99 Dinner and Lunch Specials are waiting for you every weekend of the year.
Oreo Dessert Pizza + Cake Truffles
If your high standards include eating pizza for lunch, dinner, and dessert, we know a place. In addition to their unlimited topping combinations of create-your-own personal pizzas (no one should ever have to compromise on pizza preference), PizzaRev is also serving up their new Oreo Dessert Pizza. At first you may be like, mmm wait what? But then you should be like yes please butter, cinnamon, powdered sugar, caramel, frosting, and Oreo cookie crumbles. There’s no shame in dessert for lunch, people.
All our restaurants have indoor and outdoor seating, are walkable to and from everywhere on State, and our Paseo Nuevo parking ramps are just an escalator away (we know it’s a high heeled weekend). Plus Paseo Nuevo Cinemas are so close you could almost watch a movie from your table. Classic date night, anyone?
