Wind tousles the broad leaves of vines above clusters of grapes the off-black blue of the dusk sky. Frank and Liz Vez?r, owners of Vez?r Family Vineyard, originally began growing the fruit to help fill the needs of wine producers including Ravenswood and Sin Zin. More than a decade ago, they also began producing their own wines. ?One could call it beginner?s luck,? says Touring and Tasting Magazine, ?but their award-winning streak has yet to be broken. Every single wine Vez?r has produced has won a top award or superior rating. Of most recent note, the 2007 Vez?r Cabernet Sauvignon won double gold at the Finger Lakes International Wine Competition and a whopping 97 points at a blind tasting at Napa?s Bay Leaf Restaurant.?
The winery adjoins the original Pony Express offices, and one can still almost hear the sound of plodding hooves and hooves frustratedly trying to apply stamps. On a copper-roofed cupola, an equine weathervane twists to face the winds above a sweeping swath of grass that fills with chatter during weddings and other events.
All About Scuba's team shares a bottomless fascination for the ocean and everything in it. In an effort to spread that love with the world, they lead guided dives, offer basic open-water courses, and help patrons get their NAUI, PADI, and SSI certification. They also teach a number of specialized classes including Search and Recovery, where divers learn how to locate and retrieve sunken treasure or one of Poseidon's lost frisbees by using focused search patterns, ropes, and compasses. As a full-service retailer, All About Scuba can suit up divers with gear from manufacturers such as Aqua Lung and Ocean Technology Systems, and their dive club, Rock N' Reef, gives patrons a chance to use that gear during aquatic excursions organized each month.
The striped barriers hugging the edges of Driven Raceway?s winding track quickly mutate into a black-and-red blur as emission-free electric go-karts zoom around it at speeds of up to 45 mph. Though the vehicles' superb cornering and speedy acceleration respond swiftly to their drivers' actions, the staff also mans electronic controls that can override their commands, minimizing the risk of colliding karts and clashing radio stations. Off the track, the center maintains the racing theme, peppering the mini-golf course with cars that glow under black lights and painting checkered-flag lines on each of the bowling alley's lanes.

Consider yourself warned: Demon Dreamz is not for the faint of heart. Within the child-unfriendly confines of Caretaker Hill, an otherworldly evil lurks. Demonic clowns creep through darkened corridors, while devilish dolls sneak up behind unsuspecting guests. Lights strobe on and off as carnivorous denizens, their rotting flesh dangling from their elbows, seek out their next meal. Breathless guests emerge relieved to have escaped the terror. The only thing that may help them sleep at night after the experience is knowing part of their admission price went toward helping military families in need via Travis Fisher House at Travis AFB and Fairfield PAL.
