A family-owned-and-operated farm nestled in the hills of Jamul, Hidden Haven Farms maintains the camaraderie of the Old West lifestyle through educational field trips. In its tranquil setting far from metropolitan stressors, the farm's owners lead visitors along serene jaunts, meandering through the farm?s rolling countryside and ranch layout to take in sites and look out for time-traveling rustlers trying to take livestock back to the 1860s.
Hidden Haven's pastures also provide a space for outdoor education, as the family welcomes visitors for field trips, home-school programs, summer camp, and birthday parties. During these visits, guests can master the process of shearing a sheep, watch bee pollination, and witness the first seconds of new life at a live egg hatching. Throughout the experience, guides stress the importance of maintaining a healthy connection and respect for all four-legged comrades.
The butchers of Bisher's Quality Meats help at-home cooks make meals with top-notch ingredients. Whether's it's a USDA Prime steak, a set of kobe hamburgers, or even frog legs, their cuts of meat slake omnivorous appetites with a commitment to quality. Add seafood, like lobster tail and mahi mahi, and Bisher's becomes chefs' go-to for practically any entree. And the shop's sprawling, artfully curated selection extends beyond ingredients to include prepared foods, such as buffalo stew.
At San Diego Vascular Center, a team of specialists led by board-certified vascular surgeons presides over med-spa treatments focused exclusively on spider and varicose veins. Sclerotherapy’s fine needles inject a deactivating solution into the vein, while EVLT uses lasers to do the same work. Each of these treatments is less invasive and painful than surgery, and results in less downtime, ensuring that patients can soon resume their daily routine of walking backward on a merry-go-round for hours.
Dr. Peter Do and his highly trained staff gently exorcise debris from teeth to unearth the pristine smiles of patrons kicking back in front of a flat-screen television. Exams investigate the overall health of teeth and gums, letting hygienists peek around molars before whisking away grime lodged in the nooks between pearlies. X-rays of jaw lines ferret out hidden health issues or loyalties to taffy to encourage earlier treatment. By tending to only one patient or set of wind-up dentures at a time, Dr. Do grants undivided attention to pieholes in appointments scheduled during the week or between 8 a.m. and noon on Saturdays in a professional office ringed by earthy hues and potted plants.
Edible Arrangements' more than 50 fresh, artful fruit baskets combine the aesthetic elements and emotive properties of floral arrangements with the juicy edibility of fruit. The sweetery's designers stud the Delicious Daisy, a bouquet of sliced honeydew, pineapple, and cantaloupe, with strawberries and strings of grapes that can double as a 25th-anniversary gift for a Smucker's jam heiress ($35). Decadent, gluten-free layers of white and semisweet chocolate coat fruit in a 12-piece box of hand-dipped strawberries and bananas ($25). Customers can also put today's Groupon toward a larger centerpiece, such as the Melon Delight, a decorative spray of watermelon wedges, pineapple daisies, cantaloupe, honeydew, grapes, and double-dipped bananas sprouting from a watering can ($76). The preservative-free treats are all handcrafted at the apex of freshness, readying hand-dipped dainties to be hand-shoved into eagerly awaiting mouths.
