Two of Christian music’s most iconic artists, Amy Grant and Michael W. Smith join forces to spread the good news, leading congregations in melodious worship on their 2 Friends Tour. Since 1982, this dynamic duo has engaged millions to flock to their catchy, ecclesiastical pop music, sharing a musical camaraderie as impenetrable as a fortress with abandonment issues. Amy Grant, author of No. 1 hits such as “El Shaddai” and “Baby Baby,” has shared her gift of song for more than 30 years, selling more than 30 million albums, garnering six Grammys, and earning a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Michael W. Smith has earned countless accolades with his tremendous songbook of head-bobbing hymns and choir-rousing hits. Sharing the stage for the first time in two decades, Amy and Michael thrill fans with new psalms and favorites from their sonic scroll, merging their sets with joyful duets and chemistry that crackles like Abbott and Costello after getting struck by lightning.
Designed by course architect Gene Bates, Hunter's Point Golf Club's 18-hole, par 71 course channels the windswept charm of Britain's links-style courses in its lengthy, emerald tapestry of bent-grass fairways and greens protected by formidable hazards. Throughout the course, a king's guard of expansive waste bunkers, deep pot bunkers, and deadly quicksand bunkers stand ominously alongside landing areas and greens, placing a high premium on precise shots and astute club selection. The course takes duffers careening amid the towering scenery of the Owyhee Mountains and Boise Mountain Range, and Lake Lowell and its surrounding waterways provide both pleasing panoramas and intimidating forced carries. On the par 5 16th, a slight dogleg left spans 669 yards from the farthest tees and culminates on a green guarded by five bunkers and patrolled by a feral flagstick. The course's considerable length—it measures 7,093 yards from the back tees—is tempered by its inclusion of five tee boxes on most holes, including a Jack Rabbit family tee that reduces the course length by more than half for true neophytes and players experimenting with spaghetti-based club shafts.

Children enjoy physical and imaginative play at Jabbers, wiggling out kilojoules of energy in a safe, 5,000-square-foot indoor activity center. Day passes ($5.66 for kids 1–3 years old; $7 for kids 4 and over) allow energetic youngsters to bound through padded obstacles in a colorful, 13-foot play structure, or hone artistic talents and beret-wearing abilities in the art studio. A mock farmers' market teaches tykes about the fun of everyday errands as they load up on plastic produce and wheel miniature grocery carts to the checkout lane. Pedal-powered cars and scooters roll laps around the roadway cutting through the pretend construction zone, where kids can protect noggin tops with hard hats and take union-mandated naps. A two-story playhouse shelters domestic games like House or Pin the Check on the Mortgage Payment, and a separate toddler area showcases gentler toys for the extra-young.
With machines set up in rows to encourage competition, many ordinary gyms cater to men's bodies and psychology, right down to the urinals that were accidentally installed in the women's locker room. At Curves, you'll move around a circle of hydraulic resistance machines designed to work with women's bodies, promote weight loss, protect against osteoporosis, and deal with arthritis. An experienced trainer is always nearby to help manage machine maneuvering and muscle making. Instead of fiddling with weight stacks and losing momentum, the hydraulic machines use each lady’s body weight and unique fitness level to create resistance that matches her abilities, decreasing the risk of soreness or injury. Because traditional lift-and-lower motions can 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.
