The Rundown: Dinner and dancing are a traditional standard of date nights everywhere. However, it's probably not the foxtrot or waltz and a prix fixe dinner - but it can be.
Tavern at Lark Creek's Ballroom & Dining Room series incorporates dancing lessons, a different style each week, followed by a seasonally inspired three-course dinner.
The inspiration for the series is a throwback to the town's past: Larkspur's Volunteer Fire Department hosted outdoor dances from 1913 through the 1940s at what they called the Rose Bowl. The popular dances (my grandparents loved going) were located a block away from where Tavern at Lark Creek stands, but alas, all that's left of the Rose Bowl is a grove of trees.
So after a 60-plus year hiatus, Tavern at Lark Creek is taking over. So grab a pip and some snazzy dancing shoes and shake a leg up to Marin.
