El Rancho Verde Golf Club has spent half a century basking in the majesty of the surrounding snow-capped mountains, testing golfers on a challenging course without disrupting their inner peace. The par 72 course boasts holes to make both advanced stick-swivelers and novice wedge-wielders feel at home. From the longest tees, balls can race down 6,844 yards of fairway, along pools that reflect the towering peaks and lush greenery where native owls wait eagerly to adopt lost golf balls and hatch them as their own.
"I am artistry"—that's the translation of Je M'appelle Artistry, as well as owner Shonny's philosophy. Shonny works as a photographer, designer, and instructor, often combining all three passions. Snapping photos with her Nikon D600, she captures intimate boudoir scenes, romantic wedding images, and fanciful kids' shots, focusing on portraits. She extends this love of portraits into group or private workshops, where students learn to incorporate natural light and elements into their pictures. Her photos have been published in the cloth-diapering book Changing Diapers; she also designs her own cloth-diaper and clothing patterns.

After 30 years in the business, the sandwich-fixing masters at Ray's Downtown Deli still satiate ravenous appetites with custom sandwiches, grilled burgers, and house-made soups and salads. Patrons engineer their ideal sandwich from an extensive list of fresh ingredients, or choose one of the deli's specialty sammies, including the Downtown deli roast beef classic, a generous portion of tender meat tucked beneath a green chili and served on an onion bun bound blissfully together with swiss and cheddar cheeses ($6.25), or the turkey bacon club, which crowns a poultry pile with smoky bacon and provolone cheese ($6.25). On the hot menu, juicy burgers and chicken sandwiches rub delectable elbows with daily specials ($6.42+), including meatloaf and veggies lounging in a pool of gravy on a creamy mashed-potato raft on Thursday, and an italian-sausage grinder that gives Tuesday new meaning alongside a supporting cast of house-made salad, pickle, and a small drink. Evenings after 5 p.m., the sounds of live bands and DJs permeate the bar-like atmosphere at Ray's Downtown Deli, leaving diners free to chew without whistling their own theme music through rye-bread-dusted lips.

“This is not your typical food-truck festival; this event will offer cutting-edge culinary flavors from chefs who want to take your palate on a journey you won't soon forget. You've got an unbelievable festival of haute cuisine you don’t want to miss." This is how PBS television host and founder of the event, Cliff Young, characterizes the mouth-watering event. More than 20 mobile and skilled chefs from southern California will be parking their mobile eateries inside San Manuel Stadium on April 22 to fill visitor's bellies with such culinary creations as oven-roasted turkey paninis, gooey house-made mac 'n' cheese with hickory-smoked bacon, and red velvet cupcakes as decadent as gold-plated helipads. A beer garden allows of-age visitors to complement savory tidbits with sips of ale. Not only does the event showcase the area's finest mobile-food mavens, but also a portion of the event's proceeds will go to The Symphonie Jeunesse Youth Orchestra for Strings.
