Chtaura Mediterranean Restaurant treats its visitors to a feasts of hot and cold mezzes, beef and lamb kabobs, and sizzling plates of steak. Guests savor charbroiled lamb chops, spicy Lebanese beef kibbe, and creamy hummus dip, paired with earthy wisps of flavored smoke from a hookah pipe. On weekends, singers croon Arabic tunes and live DJs spin pounding tracks. That music animates belly dancers, who hypnotize diners with graceful movements. They can even light the entire bar on fire, forcing guest to choose to watch the dancers, the fire, or the sudden flock of moths.
Students unleash their inner creativity during Wine and Palette's laid-back painting classes. The professional-artist instructors invent projects that reflect their individual style, from bold abstract patterns to misty, atmospheric landscapes. Though all members of a course work on the same basic image, students add individual flourishes to make the image their own. And, since each class meets at a local bar or restaurant, they can also choose to kick back with a drink or snack as they paint.

The family-owned Sun Valley Golf Course cultivates a welcoming atmosphere that sets nerves at ease so that youngsters and beginners can make a stress-free foray into the lifelong game. The par 27 excursion politely omits any tee shot longer than 145 yards, eliminating the trepidation felt on long tee shots over water or asteroid craters at larger venues. Nevertheless, small greens and quick changes in elevation keep even more experienced players on their toes and help them to hone short-game technique. The course's short layout ensures that players average less than 90 minutes for a nine-hole round, leaving plenty of time in the day to polish lucky golf balls.
Its simple course layout makes Sun Valley Golf Course a natural place for young club cadets to take up the game. Junior golf programs led by instructor Mike Cortes help kids to develop proper form at an early age through camps, clinics, and classes.
Course at a Glance: * 9-hole, par 27 course * Total length of 1,057 yards from the back tees * Two sets of tees per hole
