Hike Runyon Canyon with a rescue dog
A morning hike to stunning city views, in a dog friendly park with our rescue dogs! We will enjoy a nice walk up hiking trails to the top of Runyon Canyon. Fantastic city views, and the perfect view of the Hollywood Sign! As you climb your way up the hill with your new pals in tow, you’ll be exercising and socializing the dogs, and letting locals know they’re up for adoption. You’ll also become a puppy paparazzi and take their photos in front of panoramic backdrops—you can even pose with them with the famous Hollywood sign behind you. Your pictures will then be used to generate interest in the rescue organization, attract potential adopters, and bring in donations that will help further care for and foster the dogs until they find their forever homes. This experience is great for groups and great for teams! We love to host private and corporate groups, and socializing with the dogs is great for team-building! Other things to note: We will be in direct sun, so bring sunscreen and other protective wear. There are no bathrooms in Runyon Canyon. Your friendly dog is welcome to join us! Street parking is very difficult.

Vintage Thrift Shopping at LA's Biggest Flea Market
Want to thrift like a pro? Looking for quality vintage clothing, antiques, and plants? Join me in attending Pasadena's Rose Bowl Flea market which is held every second Sunday of the month. With 2,500 vendors, I will guide you into the right sections and assist you in finding what you are looking for and the deals. What is included: The entry ticket for the fair Transportation (I will pick you up, drop you off) Supplies (water, sunscreen, snacks) Personal shopping assistant (includes honest feedback) I believe that this flea market is a true gem of LA, and is my favorite place to thrift. I also found it is not easy to navigate as a first timer. I learned the hard way that this flea market is HUGE and there are specific areas that have the goods. I also learned that to have the full experience you must be prepared (hydrated, proper shoes, snacks) and you can't be afraid to barter (I can help with this)

Hollywood Pub Crawl with a Magician
On The Hollywood Magician Bar Crawl you'll enjoy touring intimate bars with a magician for a guide! I don't just show you where to go. I'll perform amazing sleight of hand wonders in front of your eyes at every venue. Participation in the tricks is guaranteed for every guest. Perhaps you’ve been on the typical, rowdy backpacker pub crawl somewhere in Europe; thirty or so people wrangled from one noisy dance club to the next. They’re definitely a lot of fun, but I'm aiming for a slightly different experience. We'll be avoiding the glitzy clubs and instead focusing on historical bars, dives and places where the locals actually hang out. These will be casual joints - if you're looking to get glammed up and dance like a VIP at an exclusive nightclub there are other awesome experiences on Airbnb you can look for. If instead, you prefer local watering holes, meeting fellow travellers and close-up magic then this is the crawl for you!
Learn To Eat Fire
Cat is international award-winning variety performer Vixen DeVille with 15 years experience in Fire Eating and Flame Manipulation. At the newly renovated Theatre 68 Arts Complex she will take you through the theory and safety precautions behind fire eating and body burning. We'll then actually light up the torches and explore this performance art fully with hand transfers, tongue transfers and of course, extinguishing the flame with your mouth. This is NOT an illusion! By the end of the session you'll be fire eating and body burning like a pro. Other things to note: Wear close-fitting clothes, sleeveless is ideal and either leggings or shorts. Flat shoes, no heels. Avoid wearing lipstick or body moisturizer & avoid use of hairspray. Long hair should be tied back. This experience is available for the single traveller but also ideal to book as a private event for a group experience or for team-building - please contact me for more availability if your preferred date and time isn't currently listed.
