In the Old World, castles were places to live, govern, and seek shelter. Today, there are still places designed to keep the outside world at bay, but rather than standing as bastions of military defense, they serve as oases of relaxation, fitness, and fun. Riviera Country Club and Sports Center is one such getaway. There, members can explore a vast campus of athletic and recreation amenities including indoor and outdoor pools, a full gym, and a spa. Though the club’s organizers leave plenty of time for individuals to play in each space, they also host organized events, including regular group fitness classes such as boot camp, kickboxing, and Latin dance. They maintain a vast array of sports courts, as well, allowing members to feed their competitive sides in basketball, tennis, and racquetball arenas. As adults young and old sweat during their chosen forms of play, staffers help tykes explore their creativity in a play space known as the Sandbox, which combines education, arts and crafts, and computers to produce a secret army of glitter robots.
At La Riviera Family Pizza, chefs slather homemade sourdough crust with marinara, artichoke, or pesto sauce before piling on toppings such as whole-milk mozzarella cheese, salami, and sundried tomatoes. Gourmet toppings also fill calzones, which ooze with a blend of melted mozzarella, provolone, and ricotta cheeses. Other Italian specialties include homemade pasta dishes such as lasagna and ravioli and sandwiches such as meatball subs and roast beef au jus.
It's almost a tradition now: seasoned staff members of Krony's Pizza love the business so much that they open their own location. After three decades, this rite of passage has brought Krony's third location from its home in upstate New York to the West coast. Amid bright orange walls and checkered floors, homemade pizzas depart the oven steaming in white, pink, or red sauce beside hot subs, hearty wraps, and fresh salads. The eatery's free WiFi allows easy access to email or pointers on protecting the roof of one's mouth from impatient chomping on too-hot pizza.
"Sit down, relax and start the day with a real cup of coffee," advises a Press-Enterprise review of Café Europa. "One of the secrets to a great cup of coffee is to make it in small batches instead of in those industrial size containers that sit on a burner until the last drop is gone." Café Europa's intimate confines capture European hospitality, even forgoing a freezer in favor of fresh-made dishes. That spirit of taking the time to do everything well extends into the rest of the menu, which offers both American- and European-sized portions.
Each day, produce trucks drive up to the restaurant, delivering locally sourced and organic fruits and veggies. Those might include asparagus, which joins with organic yogurt to showcase a unique version of eggs benedict, or dill and spinach for omelettes. Those omelettes are made with omega-3 eggs, which are organic just like many of the restaurant's other ingredients. Paninis showcase nitrate-free meats and allow European influences to shine. Furthering the feeling that you are in a bohemian and sun-soaked land is an open, dog-friendly patio with a view of the adjacent park, where glasses of beer, French and Italian wine, and exotic soju cocktails click together.
The Sesma family has permeated the colorful dining area of Guacamoles with the tempting fragrances of fresh and authentic Mexican fare for more than 20 years, and along the way has won the admiration of reporters from Eye on the Desert. Drawing from decades of Mexican cooking and restaurant experience, Tony and Artemisa Sesma curate an eclectic menu that catalogs a selection of tacos, burritos, and traditional dishes. Several vegetarian and low-calorie items create culinary diversity, and a fresh salsa bar showcases seven choices of red and green salsas, the two colors most frequently mentioned in lawsuits involving Santa Claus. The bright blue tables that accouter indoor and outdoor patio seating areas encourage conversational lunchtime lingering, and the restaurant radiates a warm, communal atmosphere with a family staff, vibrant artwork, and an absence of conversationally challenged stone gargoyles.
