Named Valley Advocate’s Best Steakhouse for five years in a row, Opa Opa Steakhouse and Brewery grills an array of steak cuts—ranging from sirloin tips to prime rib—to a juicy and house-recommended medium rare. Beyond its steaks, the eatery’s grub follows the same Southwestern theme as its dining room’s decorative touches, which includes a wagon wheels and a cattle skull. The kitchen’s carefully roasted baby-back ribs, barbecued chicken, and pulled pork complements homestyle favorites such as meatloaf, lasagna, and fish and chips. All of the hearty entrees pair with sides that run the gamut from fries to cowboy beans. An array of beers, encompassing award-winning pours such as Red Rock Amber Ale and King Oak Milk Stout, wash meals down more effectively than a good, long yawn in front of water slide. Opa Opa Steakhouse and Brewery also caters events on-site or at the customer's choice of location.
As the Roxy behind Roxy Skin Care, Roxanne Rodriguez boasts more experience than the average aesthetician. Though she began her career working alongside physicians in med spas, she also spent nine years learning the ropes in the medical field, honing her clinical experience and determining whether or not ER was true to life.

At The Skin Place, patients can turn back sagging facial clocks with help from the Triniti three-stage laser treatment. After a complimentary consultation to diagnose the skin’s condition, uneven pigment finds itself in the corrective cross-hairs of a color-correcting photofacial beam, which works to even tone, undo sun damage, and treat symptoms of rosacea, spider veins, and aggressive kisses. Next, the Refirme laser assists in facial de-drooping by stimulating subdermal collagen replenishment with bipolar radio-frequency and light waves. Ideal for flashing away saggy under-eye circles and brow lines, the process helps to bolster long-term collagen production for longer-lasting tautness and fewer fine lines. Finally, the Matrix IR laser is deployed against mild to moderate wrinkles, using focused energy at furrowed danger zones to demurely obscure facial age. The number of required sessions is dependent each patient’s skin condition and number of faces, and though some may note immediate results after only one treatment, most take three to five sessions for optimal results.
