Saturday and Sunday evenings from 5 to 8 p.m. the intimate and quaint cafe, Vinadore, offers a paint class and lots of laughs for anyone looking for a relaxing evening. The class is $20, comes with an instructor to guide you through the process, and a glass of wine.

The Grill on The Alley Restaurant in Beverly Hills

Luckily for us we have zero humidity this time of year and the evening can give you that slight chill
