Dinner and a Movie – Enhanced!

So the weekend has rolled around, and it’s time to catch a movie with your sweetie.  There are just a few issues to sort out first… for the movie, she want a romantic comedy, you want an action thriller.  For dinner, she wants Italian, you want a steak.  We can’t really help you with those things, but what we can do is help you get there once you’ve decided.

Allow us to explain…  Let’s say you drive yourselves.  If the restaurant is near the movie theater, perhaps you can park in one place for the entire night.  If that’s not the case, you’ll have to allow extra time to find a parking space for both places.  Another more pressing concern is, you’re probably going to have a few drinks at the restaurant, and quite possibly at the theater too, so one of you will need to be the designated driver.

Now of course there’s always the option of a taxi, or one of those unregulated “phone app car services”.  Sure. they’re cheaper, but you never know when they’ll show up, or the skill of the driver, so you may miss your dinner reservation, or the movie if it’s a busy night for them.  But with a top of the line luxury limousine, driven by a professional chauffeur, these aren’t concerns.


Your night will start with a pickup at your home, then a relaxing ride to the restaurant you and the Mrs. have managed to agree upon.  No concerns about traffic, navigation or parking.  And when dinner is over, that same limo and driver will whisk you off to the theater.  Leave your restaurant “doggie bags” in the car, maybe that extra coat you brought, and enjoy your movie.  And when the end credits rolls, that same limo will be waiting for you outside.  No searching for your car in the parking lot (or waiting for that “amateur car service” to show up.  Just a simple, easy elegant night out.

How large is your limousine?

One of the most frequent questions we receive at 800 Limo Ride is “…how many people will fit in one of your limos?”

Now that’s a question that’s difficult to answer.  Is kind of like calling a pizza place and asking how many slices are in a pizza.  Think about this for a minute.  Without knowing the size of the pizza (or the size of the limo), answering this question isn’t going to help you make the right choice.


If we continue with the pizza analogy, if the restaurant has an 15 inch pizza, cutting that pizza into 10 slices or 30, it’s still the same amount of pizza. And it’s very similar with a limo, in that the capacity will depend on which limo you are asking about, and the length and configuration of that limousine.


So, what should you do?  We suggest that when calling a limo service, you should inform them that you need a limousine for x number of people, and then ask what your options are for limos of that capacity.

With this line of questioning, the limo service representative will know exactly what your needs are, and can then discuss the various types, configurations and passenger capacities they offer.  You’ll have the information you need to make the right choice, and you won’t end up with the wrong limousine – one that’s not big enough, or one that’s way more than you need.



At the end of the day, you’ll have the limo you want, and not the one you don’t.  Whether it’s for a night on the town, a Temecula wine tour, or a wedding, getting a limousine that has the capacity for your group is key.  And asking the right questions is the first step in getting that limousine.

To get some ideas, please take a look at our Orange County limousine fleet, then give us a call, or submit a free online limo price quote request.  We’re always here to help, 24/7 365.

A Better Wedding Anniversary

That time of year is rapidly approaching… you know, the time of year you forgot last time.  Yep, that didn’t go over well.  You were in the doghouse for the whole weekend.  That little day that you must never forget, or your wife won’t ever forget.  That’s right, we’re talking about your wedding anniversary.


You told yourself you weren’t going to let this happen again.  Well, the day is almost here again, and you realize you haven’t planned anything yet.  And it has to be something bigger than usual, because you need to make up for last year.

Flowers? That’s a given.

Dinner? Absolutely!

But what else.  How can you make the whole occasion more memorable?  Consider how you’re going to get where you’re going…


Your first thought is to drive yourself.  Of course then maybe only one of you can enjoy the wine and Champagne.  That’s no good.

What about a taxi?  You won’t score any points with your wife here.


How about the ever popular “amateur” car services?  Hmm, that’s a gamble.  You never know who will show up or what they’ll be driving.  That’s fine for a night out with the guys, but not enough for tonight.

No, you need to do it up right. You need a true professional chauffeur.  And that chauffeur needs to be driving a luxury limousine.

Something like a Lincoln Town Car stretch limo would fit the bill.

Or  maybe a Cadillac Escalade super stretch SUV limo to really impress.

Optionally, you can arrange for your driver to have the flower arrangement, and your wife’s favorite bottle of wine or Champagne waiting for you in the limousine.  You’ll then be whisked off to her favorite restaurant in luxury and style.  After that, maybe a drive down to the beach for a romantic after dinner stroll.  It’s your night, make it memorable.

Your driver will be at the ready, to take you wherever you want to go.  And at the end of the night, he’ll take you back home, safely and comfortably.

And let’s not forget the added bonus of things you DON’T get when you choose a limo for your anniversary celebration… You won’t get to fight with traffic, you won’t get to search for a parking space, and perhaps most importantly, you won’t risk getting a DUI because you and your wife had one too many glasses of champagne.
