Discover the possibilities of a Craving Adventures experience for your special occasion or small group through past client experiences...
90th Birthday Extravaganza!
Our customer turned to Craving Adventures to help create an exceptional day for her mother's 90th birthday.
The day included a 100% personalized trolley tour of Santa Barbara including historic highlights of our beautiful city and an exclusive stop at Santa Barbara's silent film studios with a special selection of delicious cupcakes.
Back at their rental house, our favorite private chef cooked up an Italian feast while guests enjoyed having their portraits drawn by a caricature artist.
Photos were taken throughout their day and a framed shot of the whole group and photo CD magically appeared at their doorstep as a momento of a glorious day!
Don't take our word for it! Here's what our customer had to say:
"It was all so graciously and meticulously executed and EVERYONE was awe inspired by every turn of events. I can't even decide what was my favorite part. And how you managed to deliver the framed photo and CD is still puzzling!. You are like magicians--You gals are awesome!! Chef's food was amazing and they left the kitchen cleaner than before. And although I was at first skeptical when you first proposed having a caricature artist come, once he started doing caricatures, everyone was falling over themselves to pose…What a HUGE hit that was!! You get gold stars all around. I couldn't be happier and my mother still marvels at each aspect of what will go down in family history as a "weekend to remember!" thank you both again, for making it happen!!"
Chickens 101 Birthday Experience
Karen and David dove into the world of chickens and learned the ins and outs of raising chickens and all that it entails! On an urban farm, they picked fresh produce, learned how to slaughter chickens, and ate a home-cooked meal out in the garden.
"We really enjoyed our long half-day at Fairview Gardens. Mark is a very interesting person and someone we'd love to get to know better. What a great resource for Santa Barbara...really one of those guys who makes our community better. Karen decided this was more like my birthday present than hers ;>) I wished we had more time so we could have dressed two more chickens...then maybe I'd be an expert. A memorable experience! Thanks for putting it together!"
Two sisters combined their families for a Craving Adventures family experience including beach cruisers along the coast, private yoga session by the sea, and a picnic lunch from a local hidden gem. In the afternoon, the parents enjoyed a guided wine tasting to 3 wineries, while the kids took a surf lesson nearby...and all stood up on their boards! Together, over artisan chocolate truffles, the families came back together and exchanged stories from their day.
They loved it so much they sent us a video of their experience as a thank you!
Sailing, Music, & Trolley Experience
Everyone met at the harbor for a sunset sail aboard one of our favorite sailboats. On board, a private Chef created a special feast of: local Halibut ceviche in wonton cups and Heirloom tomato and fresh basil bruschetta appetizers, roasted vegetable lasagna, seasonal greens salad, marinated tri-tip, all followed with candied almonds and chocolate truffles from local confections creator (classic dark chocolate/salt'n'pepper milk chocolate) so as to polish things off right! As we sailed, local musicians played rockabilly music on their guitar and stand up bass - a unique Craving Adventures touch. After the sail, a trolley awaited our arrival and off we went on a tour of historic Santa Barbara landmarks all lit up at night. The trolley dropped off the group at local hotspot by the beach where the party continued on the private back patio with more nibbles such as fried calamari and ahi tuna tartar.
