For La Strada's owners, Martino and Adriano, food lies at the heart of their business and their friendship. They first met while working various Italian restaurants in North Beach and immediately hit it off. Through the years, they'd daydream about opening their own restaurant, until one day a vacant restaurant space changed everything. After taking a look inside, they decided to take the plunge?and the first La Strada location was on its way to opening.

Their first restaurant flourished and soon they opened a second location right next to City Hall. This time, they outfitted the new dining room with fireplace seating, Italian archways, and murals of rolling Tuscan countryside. But they didn't change the one thing that made their first restaurant successful: the food. At both locations, they continue to serve their classic Italian eats, such as skewers of salmon, scallops, and veggies in a white wine garlic sauce and tender veal stuffed with prosciutto, sage, olives, and mozzarella.

Golf legend Arnold Palmer, known in the cleated world as the King and winner of the PGA Tour's Lifetime Achievement Award, as well as a member of the World Golf Hall of Fame, designed the undulating ryegrass fairways at Hiddenbrooke Golf Club. Ranked as one of Golf Digest’s Readers’ Choice Top 50 Public Courses in 2009, the course unfolds scenic views of rolling hills as players give their balls detailed directions, hand them compasses and trail mix, and send them hiking toward the pin. The 12th hole’s pin challenges orbs with one of the toughest locations on the course, and eight sand bunkers guard three sides of the 18th hole’s green. After working up a sweat, swingers can remove their gloves and Kevlar vests and celebrate or commiserate their score at The Grille, where diners gaze out over the greens while munching sandwiches and quaffing beer.

Course at a Glance: * 18-hole, par-72 course * Length of 6,678 yards * Course rating of 72.8 * Slope rating of 142 * 25 hitting stations at driving range * See helpful course map and notes

It's not just that they don't mind?visitors to Omescape actually want to be locked into a room for an hour. These, however, are no ordinary rooms, but tests of mental prowess. They're an online room escape come to life, chock-full of puzzles and mind benders that lead to the way out.

Teams of up to eight players scour the room for clues and then try to find their way out in just one hour. In Room Omega, they're working to uncover the reasons for time travel researcher Professor Stanley's mysterious disappearance; in Forgotten Treasure, the team must search for a pirate's secret stash of gold and blinged-out eye patches.

Because Omescape's staffers recognize the games are challenging, they allow teams to ask for help one time during the game, and they keep the entrance to the room open at all times in case anyone feels uncomfortable (each room has an entrance and an exit). The fastest teams to escape through the exit get their photos hung on the wall and an invitation to return to test new rooms.
