Moises Rodriguez is not only the owner of Que Viva; he's also the entertainment. On Friday and Saturday nights, he serenades guests with his flamenco guitar playing as they dine on Mexican dishes such as handmade tamales, carnitas, and grilled chicken breast in red chile mole. Chefs craft each dish using fresh ingredients selected by hand at a restaurant wholesaler each week by co-owner Isabel Rodriguez. Isabel's influence also shines in the restaurant's brightly decorated dining room, which features colorful flowers and carved wooden birds. On the outdoor patio, patrons eat while enjoying the warmth of the sun or the shape of a cloud that looks like an old boss falling out of a chair.
Swaying in time with rhythmic drumbeats and ukulele strums, Aloha Dancers' students pick up the footsteps and hip swings of Polynesian dance styles such as hula kahiko, Tahitian otea, and Maori during weekly classes. One-hour danceathons in the afternoons and early evenings welcome beginners, advanced students, and children at different levels to ensure that shimmying skills develop at comfortable rates. In each week’s class, students build on the repertoire of moves learned in the previous lesson as instructors roll coconuts across the floor to test their balance. While dodging the hairy shells and swaying their arms in graceful half circles, students also learn about the historical role of dancing in Hawaii's culture and gain insight into the techniques used to make the palm-imprinted skirts and leafy garlands worn by professional Polynesian dancers.

When Jim Knudson bit into his first taco during dinner at a friend's house in 1949, he knew he had tasted something special. He added the item—which many diners were pronouncing "tay-co"—to the menu at his restaurant in Grass Valley, California. Determined to introduce the food to as many people as possible, Jim and his wife, Margaret, converted a 16-foot trailer into a kitchen on wheels. They adopted the nickname Jim had earned from one of his longtime customers and drove up to Lake Tahoe, where Jimboy's Tacos found its first permanent home.
Locals, tourists, and even members of the Rat Pack flocked to the tiny taco stand for the uniquely seasoned, parmesan-dusted ground-beef taco, the anchor of a growing menu. The family eventually relocated to Roseville, California, where they set up a small taco stand and began branching out to other locations in and around Sacramento.
Today, Jim Knudson’s daughter Karen, the current president of the company, carries on the legacy of taco obsession at more than 40 locations in northern California and Nevada. Guests who arrive early for breakfast might glimpse the cooks slowly simmering beans, mashing avocados into guacamole, and preparing their signature ground beef with trans-fat-free oil. In addition to classic corn-tortilla tacos, the menu holds the mega-size flour-tortilla El Gordo, golden-fried taquitos, and even a taco burger that fuses Mexican and American culinary traditions.
