Eight great three-hour dates on a $25 budget

MalibuseafoodOur Business section shows you how to wine and dine your sweetie -- and still stick to your budget. Business editor Sallie Hofmeister tells you what's on the menu:

"My partner, David, and I had missed celebrating the New Year with a couple of our friends, so we made plans to meet them at the Malibu Seafood Fresh Fish Market and Patio Cafe a few Sundays later to satisfy our craving for raw oysters and champagne.

"I packed a little cooler with a couple of bottles of Blason de Bourgogne's Cremant de Bourgogne, a delicious French sparkling wine sold at Trader Joe's for $9.99. I dug out a box of cheap champagne flutes and tucked an oyster knife into my pocket. Off we went at about 2 in the afternoon, giving us enough time to enjoy the day and take in the sunset."

I was surprised to see, in a "times are tough" article, a couple spend $25 on an oatmeal, coffee and OJ breakfast they could have made at home for a couple of bucks.
