At Persia Cuisine, variety is key: kebabs come with lamb, chicken, or salmon, and there’s specially steamed basmati rice seasoned with saffron, plus sour cherry rice, or lima beans with dill rice. While variety defines the appeal of the eatery’s kebabs, a special process defines the signature taste and texture of its rice. First, the staff boils away the starch, then, they steam the rice to make it fluffy. With all the menu options, though, guests always find one constant—the dishes are healthy, containing antioxidant-packed sumac spice, fresh vegetables, and herbs. Persia Restaurant offers special events at certain times, too, whether a simple lunchtime buffet showcasing a slate of hot options or Saturday nights when belly dancers entertain guests by teaching them what was once thought to be impossible: how to look elegant while belly-flopping into a pool.

In an effort to combat the detached and repetitive vibe of most gyms, owner and personal trainer Tony Velasco and his team make personalization Afterburn Fitness's top priority. All members enjoy tailored treatments from highly skilled staff members, who continually gauge client fitness levels with body composition tests and nutritional evaluations. Instead of letting guests loose into rooms filled with dumbbells and jump ropes, Afterburn carefully cultivates every member's fitness path by creating a combination of challenging classes. The content of each class shifts depending on different goals, but participants can expect to hoist tires, battling ropes, and boxing gloves in progressive routines that keep muscles thoroughly confused, like someone reading Finnegan’s Wake upside down. Guidelines for healthier eating and helpful supplements accompany each exercise program to create a body-sculpting regimen that has been featured on KCAL's The Best of Southern California.

Hundreds more garage escapees populate the premises on Saturday for the classic car show, where hundreds of vehicles in categories from Ferraris and rat rods to motorcycles and exotics await automotive oglers.
