A California Winery Has Created a Vino-Filled Escape Room You May Never Want to Leave

If the thought of being locked in a room with your friends for an indeterminate amount of time makes you stressed, try adding a little wine to the mix. Chateau St. Jean, a winery located in California's Sonoma Valley, now hosts what may be the most luxurious escape room on Earth, as PureWow reports.

The escape-the-room experience, titled "Unlock the Chateau," gives groups of six to 12 people 60 minutes to solve a series of puzzles. The escape room is appropriately vino-themed, with players having to look in places like wine barrels to find clues in order to move on to the next room.

Each guest is given a complimentary glass of sparkling wine at the start of the challenge that they can sip as they play. And in case the game starts out too idyllic for players to ever want to leave, the promise of a second glass of wine after they unlock the second room and a full flight when they escape will surely keep them motivated.

Escape rooms aren't usually set in the most pleasant places: Madame Tussauds, for example, opened an escape room earlier this year that placed guests in a cell in Alcatraz. But for those looking for a more relaxing experience, you can book a reservation at Chateau St. Jean Monday through Friday for $60 a person.

Plano, Texas Is Home to a Dog-Friendly Movie Theater That Serves Bottomless Wine or Whiskey

K9 Cinemas
K9 Cinemas

For dog owners in Plano, Texas, movie night with Fido no longer just means cuddling on the couch and browsing Netflix. The recently opened K9 Cinemas invites moviegoers—both human and canine—to watch classic films on the big screen. And the best part for the human members of this couple? Your $15 ticket includes bottomless wine or whiskey (or soft drinks if you're under 21).

The theater operates as a pop-up (or perhaps pup-up?) in a private event space near Custer Road and 15th Street in Plano. Snacks—both the pet and people kind—are available for $2 apiece. Dogs are limited to two per person, and just 25 human seats are sold per showing to leave room for the furry guests.

Pet owners are asked follow a few rules in order to take advantage of what the theater has to offer. Dogs must be up-to-date on all their shots, and owners can submit veterinary records online or bring a hard copy to the theater to verify their pooch's health status. Once inside, owners are responsible for taking their dog out for potty breaks and cleaning up after any accidents that happen (thankfully the floors are concrete and easy to wipe down).

While many of the movies shown are canine-themed—a recent screening of A Dog's Journey included branded bandanas with every ticket purchase—they also hold special events, like a Game of Thrones finale watch party (no word on how the puppers in attendance responded to Jon Snow finally acknowledging what a good boy Ghost is).
