Are you looking for a great patio to dine at? I have found it for you! The Independence in Santa Monica.

Are you looking for something fun to do over the weekend or even a weeknight happy hour? Since we haven’t been able to do happy hours with friends or loved ones Arguax has a fun Virtual Wine Kit that will bring wine tasting to you in the comfort of your home.
