Creative clients brush layers of vibrant, nontoxic paint onto a wide selection of pieces at Daydreams Ceramic Café. The wood- and earth-tone-accented shop, with a feel akin to a rustic winery, lines shelves with blank bowls, vases, mugs, and figurines. After a creative slathering, staff members glaze each piece and fire it in in the café's 2,000-degree kiln for up to two days, rendering it glossy and safe for food, microwaves, dishwashers, and teething pets. The café charges no studio fee for its visiting artists and allows them to return as many times as necessary to complete their masterworks—features which may have helped it to snag a 2011 Best Arts & Crafts award from CityVoter.
Covering more than 40,000 square feet of real estate at the Chula Vista Otay Ranch Mall, Total Combat Paintball strives to host sharpshooting clashes that players of all ages can enjoy. Take TCP’s Splatmaster parties for instance, where players as young as 6 can finally ditch the sidelines and join the action. During these rounds, lighter ammunition is used, ensuring no player leaves with welts or bruises that awkwardly spell the name of their secret crush. TCP hosts competitions for more experienced players throughout the year, too. It often transforms into a battleground for high school tournaments and other special events, such as “Glow Nights” that feature glowing gear, laser lights, and thumping music.

Not content to just give people the tools to make their gardens beautiful, San Diego Hydroponics & Organics also teaches customers more effective ways to use them. At five California locations, the staff works to keep a dialogue open between customers, supply manufacturers, and master gardeners while helping visitors realize their gardening goals with a stock of more than 3,000 products for indoor and outdoor use. The shops brim with high-tech gardening gear ranging from plant sprayers to growth lights, and low-tech supplies such as organic compost teas. Much of the inventory helps make gardening easier by reducing it to a precise science, providing everything from pumps and irrigation to pH meters for maintaining an ideal growing environment.
Some methods of typing are classically inefficient—pecking out words with only your index fingers, for example, or staring at the keyboard and searching for the letter you need. Keyboard Pro's online typing courses help typists abandon those strategies for seamless touch-typing.
Its video-based lessons, which are endorsed by Microsoft, proceed at a custom pace, allowing for a variety of learning styles and speeds. And its focus extends beyond speed—Keyboard Pro also aids with accuracy and even helps typists improve their posture at the computer. When users pass the academy's typing exam, they receive a downloadable diploma, which they can proudly hang on their wall or the fridge of the neighbors whose own children never accomplish anything.
