Blue Adobe's History Hub experience combines entertaining stories about the Southwest's history with three-course dinners and other tasty Mexican treats. The History Hub first provides patrons with a history show and lunch at Blue Adobe event center, where customers catch a live-action reenactment of western history events with a historic enchilada and taco bar serving as a backdrop. Next, guests pile into a horse-drawn wagon for a tour of 15 registered historic structures, which are described in a 30-minute audio tour that never once uses the word manticore. While en route to a wine tasting at Windmill Winery, the wagon brakes for a Quick Draw session, where guests can wring up to 20 bullets out of a Colt 45. Finally, daytrippers round off their adventure by visiting the L&B Inn for a dinner of anything from the menu, including fajitas with chicken or beef and fresh veggies, or chili con carne with unlimited tortillas.
A former fast-paced corporate-world professional, yoga instructor Kay Koski now fosters a community where time seems to stop. Students can achieve deeper mind-body connections during yoga classes or unwind under the soothing strokes of licensed massage therapist Valerie Eenhuis. Kay also is a certified hypnotist and helps guests overcome physical and emotional limitations.
Jose Cuervo tequila with fresh lime. Kahlúa mixed with Baileys Irish Cream. Captain Morgan with Coke. At After Hours Cupcake Bar, you can't drink these concoctions, but you can eat them. These familiar cocktails are the ingredients for alcohol-infused gourmet cupcakes that serve as unique desserts to match with after-dinner drinks or to celebrate the anniversary of Prohibition’s repeal. To sate the sober crowd, After Hours also crafts a selection of virgin flavors that, while a shade more traditional, still surprise. Playful flavors include peanut butter and jelly and root-beer float, which comes coated in marshmallow buttercream frosting pierced with a miniscule straw.
Serrano’s extensive menu features a full spread of authentic Mexican appetizers, enchiladas, fajitas, sandwiches, and more. Make the flavorful most of the preprandial course with a combo mini appetizer platter, a delectable spread of beef flautas, chicken and cheese rollups, and stuffed jalapeños ($9.50). For the prand itself, diners can avail their faces of house specialties such as the machaca, shredded beef or chicken with chili, tomatoes, onions, rice, and beans saddled up next to a posse of flour tortillas ($9.75). Seafood lovers, and people who once dropped an engagement ring into the ocean and are searching for it one fish at a time, can explore the seafood favorites, such as the diverse Del Mar Sampler, featuring a shrimp enchilada, halibut steak, and garlic shrimp served with rice and Mexican-style veggies ($14.95).
Although they rely heavily on culinary traditions from across the Pacific, the chefs at Sushi Creek also draw inspiration from regional ingredients as they hand-forge a lineup of traditional and signature rolls. Beyond the confines of the sushi bar, they man grill tops in the kitchen, searing marinated slices of chicken or salmon and layering a half-pound patty of beef, ground turkey, or black bean onto their burgers.
Illuminated by a combination of dangling pendant lights and sconces, the dining room's vibrantly orange and yellow walls sport a number of nautically inspired influences, including a ship's wooden steering wheel and a submarine's snorkel tube.
