The Julian Dance and Back Country BBQ tips its cap to a bygone era when families and friends gather to celebrate the arrival of spring with music, dancing, and food. As in years past, the Menghini Winery and its serene mountain setting provide an ideal backdrop for the event. On June 14, live bands start cranking out jams right at noon?when city ordinance allows real guitars to replace air guitars?but preparations for the barbecue feast begin long before that. Several days prior, chefs coat tender meats in a secret rub and prepare to slow cook it over oak coals during the festival. Then, as night falls upon the party, well-fed attendees take to the large outdoor dance floor to bust a move while stars begin to poke through the darkening sky.
My Kids Clubhouse supervisors watch over open play as socked feet scamper through a ball pit and a mesh tunnel opening onto three slides. Across the open-format playroom floor, youngsters as old as 8 direct their own imaginative adventures in a play kitchen, soft-block area, dress-up area, and puppet theater.
Parents can drop their kids off through a secure check-in service, join their progeny on the playroom floor, or sip coffee in the Wi-Fi–enabled Clubhouse Café. In addition to holding open play hours, My Kids Clubhouse hosts two-hour birthday parties, including a slumber party option and a dinosaur-themed blowout with 3.5 billion candles to celebrate the birth of life on Earth.
My Kids Clubhouse founder Stephanie Antin opened her indoor playrooms after a disappointing search for creative play options for her own three children. She teamed up with business maven Jeri Price Smith to open two recreational locations in Poway and Bonita. Child development consultant Debbie Cazares funnels 20 years of education experience, a master's degree in Developmental Psychology, and 10 years of experience as a child to design the most creative and educational programs.
The Salvation Army Family Store collects and resells donated items ranging from vintage clothing to antique furniture. Patrons can search for wardrobes, tables, and couches to fill out their home, plates and silverware to stock their empty kitchen, and VCRs to feed their pet robot. All proceeds from the Family Stores support The Salvation Army's San Diego Adult Rehabilitation Center, a 12-step work therapy and faith-based residential and transitional rehabilitation program for men and women dealing with alcohol and substance abuse. The six-month to two-year program is offered to program participants at no cost.
Though the best way to contribute to the organization's mission, especially following natural disasters such as the recent wildfires, is with monetary donations, the Salvation Army accepts donations of used goods and clothing to sell in the network of Family Stores. All sales of these donated items support the funding of the organization's programming. To donate goods, call (800) 728-7825 or visit www.SanDiego.SATruck.org; for monetary donations, call (866) 455-4357, visit www.SanDiego.SalvationArmy.org, or send to The Salvation Army Divisional Headquarters, SD Fires, 2320 Fifth Avenue, San Diego, CA 92101.

Sheltered by a magnificent castle wall adorned with flower garlands and feathery chandeliers, The Royal Fairytale enchants little ones with indulgent events led by a cast of fairies and princesses. Tea-time soirees first outfit each young damsel in a glittery gown, tiara, and glamorous hairstyle to prepare them for story time with a royal. A successive helping of tea completes the imperial extravaganza and soothes throats sore from singing to pigeons.
