The beachfront tent from Cirque du Soleil returns to the Santa Monica Pier starting January 20th. Ideal for a date night or an in-town getaway, Santa Monica Convention & Visitors Bureau (SMCVB) is rolling out the red carpet for OVO ticketholders with creative hotel packages and dining and retail specials throughout the months of January and February.

Over 45 Santa Monica restaurants from Downtown Santa Monica to Montana and Ocean Park neighborhoods will participate in dineLA Restaurant Week 2012  from January 22-27 and January 29-February 3, 2012.  The specials are available with a pre-fixe menu: Deluxe Dining is $16 for lunch and $26 for dinner; Premier Dining is $22 for lunch and $34 for dinner; and Fine Dining is $28 for lunch and $44 for dinner (beverages, tax and gratuity are not included; participating meal periods vary by restaurant).

To celebrate date night, SMCVB  will be giving one lucky couple a Valentine’s Romance hotel package at Loews Santa Monica Beach hotel, which includes a one night stay and romantic dinner for two at Ocean & Vine.  Couples can enter to win during dineLA Restaurant Week 2012 by doing the following:
