As the sun rises over the emerald greens and fairways of Grayson Woods Golf Course, the shadows cast by Mount Diablo in the east recede and players tee up to test their mettle against the challenging par-27 course. Each of the course?s nine holes is nestled between trees and water hazards, raising the stakes and level of difficulty for junior, adult, and senior players alike. Alongside the main course, players develop their orb-rolling stroke on an 18-hole putting course that sits atop an ultra-modern surface free of divots, dirt clods, and rigs drilling for untapped sources of iced-tea-lemonade. The staff, which includes a PGA professional and an LPGA professional, offers private lessons to give improving players an edge at regularly scheduled tournaments such as the Junior-Senior Open and Ladies? Day. Lessons from their high tech teaching academy are available upon request.

In its early years, Magoo's Grill was, in its staff's own words, a "nondescript local watering hole." Twenty-five years later, the entrance twinkles with holiday lights, welcoming guests into an open space with dark-wood floors and deep, cozy booths. The kitchen staff hand crafts half-pound burgers, sealing in their juices by broiling them over an open flame. To make Magoo's signature sandwiches, chefs also grill chicken breasts and tri-tip steaks, which get topped with cheese or applewood-smoked bacon. Meals can be paired with a selection of microbrews or specialty drinks, such as Magoo's melon margarita, made with melon liqueur and lime juice.

Each season, the gifted student thespians of Diablo Valley College dazzle audiences with moving productions of classic works and contemporary plays. Satisfy your dramatic hankerings with a trio of the 2011 to 2012 season's artfully staged offerings, starting with Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet , a moving tragedy inspired by the classic musical West Side Story (October 21–30). A striking, challenging contemporary piece, The Skriker fills the stage with magical realism, shape-shifting, and unearthly characters (February 3–12, 2012; restricted to adults 18 years and older). Diablo Valley's young stage stalkers also tackle Arthur Miller's The Crucible, a stirring depiction of the Salem witch hunts of the 17th century and a poignant allegory for the anticommunist hysteria of the 1950s, when Americans were required by law to consume at least three apple pies a day (March 23–31, 2012).

Julianna Freed developed a love of putting dinner on the table early on, helping her dad fish along the West Coast. Back at home in the kitchen, she watched her mother turn the catch into new dishes and fresh takes on familiar recipes. And when she visited her grandfather’s house, she got to wander among his garden’s vegetable plants and fruit trees. Though she spent years working as a middle-school teacher, this food-focused upbringing and the enthusiasm of independent producers at her local farmers’ market eventually spurred her to create Chef Julianna, which provides catering, cooking classes, and personal-chef services.

Julianna and her chefs adhere to strict standards of farm-to-table dining; in catering and cooking, they use local and sometimes organic meat, produce, and cheese harvested from local farmers’ markets. Before each private cooking class, Julianna’s chef-instructors meet with customers in their kitchen for a consultation, during which they survey the existing amenities and check for poltergeists hiding in the cabinets. At class time, they arrive with their own ingredients and cookware to coach students in common cooking methods and recipes for the customer’s chosen culinary style. Personal and private chefs carry the personal attention even further, planning meals, shopping for groceries, and cooking in customers’ preferred styles.
