Country-style wooden chairs and a hodgepodge of art on the walls give Mainstreet Cafe a cozy, hometown atmosphere. The comfortable atmosphere is key, as staff at Mainstreet Cafe hopes its diners will come to eat all three meals and feed all four stomachs, with a menu that encompasses breakfast, lunch, and dinner. In the mornings, the griddle sizzles with eggs and pancake batter. Later in the day, guests can order hearty sandwiches and Black Angus burgers, steak dishes, or the café’s specialty german sausage and housemade zwieback.
Natural sunlight floods the interior of Shell Beach Salon & Spa, helping to create the illusion of a seaside resort. Even so, guests might notice a conspicuous absence of sand and sharp seashells as they make their way past stylists clipping and coloring hair at six stations. The spa’s aestheticians nixed those skin-damaging elements of decor, and their passion for healthy skin also compels them to cleanse and hydrate complexions with professional GlyMed products. Whether you choose to indulge in a facial, a mani-pedi, or one of nine massages, the spa’s private rooms ensure a relaxing session.
Healthy eating isn't bland or boring when Grace & Jewel's is involved. That's because the company keeps customers' kitchens stocked with plump berries, creamy avocados, savory beets, and other fresh treats that grow from the earth. The company seeks out crisp, flavorful produce both in and out out of season, fulfilling orders year-round. Organic produce and produce intended for juicing are also available.
For John Thompson, it all began with the desire to help people of all sizes and fitness levels live a healthier lifestyle. As a nationally certified personal trainer and fitness coach, John used his know-how to devise the high-intensity Ultimate 30-Minute Workout Experience, an effective, time-efficient workout that targets the whole body. Held 13 times a week, each boot-camp-like session combines cardio, weights, and abdominal exercises to boost sluggish metabolisms, tone muscles, and evict stress from tense bodies. To bolster the workout regimen, John and his fit-savvy crew craft custom nutrition programs, providing an easy-to-follow eating blueprint that helps clients establish healthy noshing habits and fit back into their high-school swim goggles.
Paso Robles doesn't have one climate. Instead, it encompasses a diverse cluster of microclimates and a correspondingly diverse array of wineries. The grapes that ripen on their vineyards here vary widely in flavor and harvest date, and the resulting wines are predictably eclectic even though they all hail from the same region.
With First Crush Wine Experience, wine enthusiasts can sample the region's bounty—and even stomp on its grapes. Hands-on, multi-day tours let participants follow a bottle of wine from vine to finished product and on some trips, participants get to custom blend their own bottle of wine. The company's seminars, meanwhile, focus on topics such as honing the palate to help wine drinkers better differentiate between wine and wine-flavored Gatorade.
