Coffee Creek Golf Course's 18-hole course integrates groves of trees, rolling terrain, and numerous streams and ponds into a 6,623-yard layout that winds through the rustic scenery of a former horse ranch. The course's front and back nines form two distinct acts of on-course challenges, as the front side roams across relatively open, rolling terrain, setting up a climactic back nine teeming with tight tree lines and water hazards filled with frog civilizations that use golf balls as currency. Champion ultra dwarf greens await at the end of every fairway, certain to make even simple putts tricky. Coffee Creek's driving range dutifully prepares pin-hunters' swings to hit the high-fade drive and pinpoint approach necessary to best the par 5 third hole?rated the course's most difficult. An onsite pro shop showcases apparel and accessories from Titleist, Callaway, and Ping, and the Out of Bounds Grill's menu lets players curb post-round cravings without having to eat their stash of broken golf tees.

It?s apparent to anyone who watches ballet that female dancers must be extremely light. After all, they often have to be swept across the stage and effortlessly lifted into the air, and their steps must be as silent as a sneeze at the opera. Yet, as slender as ballet dancers are, they still possess bodies that look as if they were chiseled out of marble. That dancer look?a slim body with long, lean muscles?is what barre3 helps its clients achieve with a combination of ballet-barre work, yoga, and Pilates.
At locations across the country, barre3?s instructors use a three-step process that first focuses on deeply exercising muscles using isometric holds. The workout then elevates heart rate with low-impact movements before cooling down the body with a recovery stretch that also helps elongate body lines.
The workout has proved to be so effective that it has received multiple press mentions, including in the Huffington Post and In Style magazine, and it has even drawn in body-conscious celebrities such as Madonna. Mothers in particular flock to barre3?s classes, as many locations offer on-site childcare.

Since Phil Clayton became the owner of TSO Optical 25 years ago, he's transitioned away from the traditional discount-eyewear model and toward a premium, boutique system that delivers higher-caliber frames. Since then, he's found that his smiling customers generally need fewer frame adjustments and less warranty work. Instead of opting for cut-rate glasses that have been blessed with a flashy label, his shop opts for quality glasses made by actual eyewear experts, housing a vibrant collection populated by frames from brands such as Oliver Peoples, Ray-Ban, and Tom Ford. A friendly and knowledgeable staff curates this vast selection, and an onsite optometrist provides prescriptions for both glasses and contacts. TSO Optical fills these frames with lenses made in their own laboratory, an onsite facility that cuts back on turnaround time so that clients get their glasses quickly and don’t have to extend the rental on their seeing-eye eagles.
