River's Edge serves up nuanced northern Italian cuisine amidst three glass walls of river-top panoramic views of the Guadalupe River. Using fresh ingredients, the professionally trained chefs at River's Edge engineer an elegant and traditional Tuscan menu with starters such as flash-fried calamari fritto ($9) and gnocchi alla romano, doughy pasta-pumpkins nestled in a patch of rustic marinara and strewn with basil pesto ($9). Sashay stomachs through a course of maple-spinach salad of granny-smith apples, chèvre cheese, and curry pecans ($9), or marsala di pollo, which presents sautéed chicken breast face-diving into a sinewy bed of chianti spaghetti and wilted spinach ($17). Diners can also enjoy tantalizing Tuscan entrees such as pan-seared Tazmanian salmon with brown-butter farfalle pasta ($24), or the inventive striscia bistecca, a kingly 14 ounces of new york strip steak denouncing the Magna Carta before a court of Boursin mashed potatoes and prosciutto-ensconced asparagus ($29).

Since 1925, Crider’s weekly shindigs have filled the air with the warm aromas of barbecue and the jovial sonic bouquet of live country music, cavorting dancers, and one of the state’s longest-running rodeos. Contemporary cowboys compete for cash in six rodeo events that showcase incredible abilities in bull riding, barrel racing, and encouraging a steer to squeeze a stress ball instead of bucking. Younger vaqueros get a chance to flaunt their skills as they mutton-bust and calf-scramble. Post-rodeo, the outdoor stage comes alive with crooning musicians including the Dirt Road Gypsies on August 20 and Jeff Griffith on September 3. Twirling figures do-si-do under the shade of massive oaks, creating spectacle of spinning as impressive as a runaway carousel as revelers feast upon fried catfish and burgers from Crider’s café or shoot pool in the adjoining game room.

Members at Curves, a fitness center designed exclusively for women, rotate around a circuit of hydraulic resistance machines that have been designed to work with female bodies and promote weight loss, protect against osteoporosis, and deal with arthritis. An experienced trainer is always nearby to help manage participants’ machine maneuvering and muscle making. Instead of fiddling with weight stacks and losing momentum, the hydraulic machines use your own body weight, fitness level, and aerodynamic water bottle to create resistance that matches your ability, decreasing the risk of soreness or injury. Because traditional lift-and-lower motions create bulky muscles, each machine uses push-and-pull motions to create toned, lean muscles perfect for crushing a grapefruit without looking like you can.
