Mark your calendars for the next three Thursday nights if you want to support the art of dance and enjoy a discount on the art of fine dining after being entertained.

City Ballet of Los Angeles is showcasing some new choreographers in a summer dance series downtown at City National Plaza from 7-8pm July 8, 15, and 22. It’s only $20 per person and the entire amount goes to benefit the scholarship fund for City Ballet of Los Angeles. Not only can you watch the newest rising stars perform unique pieces, but you also get a 30% discount at both Chaya and Drago Centro by showing them your ticket. It is handy that both restaurants are located directly below the performance space, so you can get a show and a meal without having to move your car, and that reason alone is enough to make this a date at least one Thursday this month.
