At Kearny Mesa Bowl, groups of players demonstrate their underhand accuracy before crooning hits at the onsite karaoke bar. The alley hosts open hours throughout the week, along with league opportunities for men, women, and children. Lightweight bowling balls are available for kiddies or adults whose arms are tired from bouts of underground gorilla arm wrestling. After open sessions on Friday and Saturday evenings, Kearny Mesa Bowl enlivens its space with the music and flashing lights of Rock 'n' Bowl. The alley also boasts an arcade, caf?, and full-service bar, where guests can exercise their vocal cords during weekend karaoke sessions.
Kidding Around's indoor playground unfurls with 4,000 square feet of play space for sock-donning children, toddlers, and infants to stay physically active and thoroughly entertained. Kids romp through the tangle of slides and tubes that make up the two-level climbing maze or hop into plastic cars to reenact their favorite traffic jams. Two wooden train tables instill tykes with uncontainable glee and an understanding of transnational-shipping routes, whereas two inflatable jumpers, one specifically for toddlers, allow for gravitational exploration. All toys and structures receive a full sanitization several times a day, and the playground's solitary entrance is kept secure by watchful cameras, the vigilant staff, and a teddy-bear bouncer.
In 1542, explorer Juan Rodriguez Cabrillo became the first European to step foot on what would become the West Coast of the United States. Since its founding more than four centuries later, the Cabrillo National Monument Foundation has celebrated this accomplishment?as well as the greater history and the natural scenery of San Diego's only national park, located on the southwest tip of the U.S.
Cool ocean breezes tug playfully at the horses’ manes as human and beast walk along the beach. HorseSpa believes that time spent interacting with horses is an investment toward peace of mind and confidence, and pairs up guests with horses during therapy sessions. The equines also connect with their human counterparts during activities that range from 30-minute horse-therapy sessions to four-day skill-building boot camps. Other multiday experiences include horseback-riding vacations, which allow guests several days to connect with their steeds, learn how to speak horse, and hone horseback-riding skills at the Imperial Beach nature preserve. Guests can also pair up with horses for beachside rides or trail rides.
By day, 710 Beach Club is a festive beach-side sports bar. But by night, it's one of the Pacific Beach area's most reliable music venues. The live acts that take the stage here are part of a packed calendar of events, which also includes trivia, karaoke, and open mic nights. The restaurant's food is also a major draw, whether you're stopping for happy hour after work or you just spent the day at the beach searching for a roomier seashell to live in. Burgers anchor the menu, including the half-pound So Cal burger buried beneath cheddar jack, green leaf, and ancho sauce. And during football season, 710 prepares a breakfast burrito filled with eggs, cheese, bacon, and tater tots to get fans up and running early.
The creators of GameSync Gaming Center don't consider gaming a hobby?they consider it a lifestyle. They also strive for gaming perfection, a trait that's reflected in the center's pixel-perfect monitors, continually updated hardware, and keyboard setups that are more precise than the crossbow William Tell used to turn on his TV. Of course, the real beneficiaries of all this are the gamers themselves. GameSync prides itself on being a social hangout where fleet-fingered competitors are free to make new friends and clash with old enemies in LAN competitions. They can immerse themselves into single- or multi-user environments, and also choose from a library stocked with hundreds of different titles for kids, teens, and adults.
