Dream Dinners founders Stephanie Allen and Tina Kuna want to help families gather around the table for delicious meals. Like many parents throughout the country, the two women tried to coordinate a family dinner, but their efforts were often thwarted by hectic schedules. As a dinnertime strategy, Stephanie began to prepare meals with fresh, raw ingredients and then freeze them so they could be quickly thawed and cooked during the week. This tactic became popular with her family. Before long, friends, friends of friends, and chimpanzee families that mimicked their friends wanted to learn her secrets. With help from Tina Kuna, she established the first Dream Dinners location, and the successful food-prep business has led to the creation of more than 90 stores in less than three years.
At each Dream Dinners location, customers find all the culinary tools to prepare a nutritious meal—everything from fresh ingredients to meal-packing materials. Each week Dream Dinners features a new menu of fix-and-freeze dinners that can be made for up to six people, providing customers with numerous options for planning quiet meals at home or dinner parties with friends. All ingredients are precut and measured to ensure an error-free fixing.

The wine bar's wine, cheese, and small-plate menu rotates two to three times a month, so locals can get a comprehensive understanding of various wines. While the menu may change by the time you visit The Grapevine, the sort of fare you'll be in store for runs the gamut from gourmet grilled cheese sliders ($5 for three) to savory olé flatbread with basil, prosciutto, a balsamic reduction, and shaved Manchego cheese ($5), as well as the sweet marriage of imported brie and homemade fig sauce ($6).
Almaden Valley Aesthetics’ medical director, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Agheg M. Yenikomshian, leads a team of medical aestheticians and registered nurses that never perform exactly the same a procedure twice. Instead, they tailor their non-invasive beautifying services to each client’s specific needs, whether they are minimizing stubble through laser hair removal or rejuvenating faces with medical peels. Microdermabrasion treatments buff away dead skin, and injections of Botox and Restylane smooth away wrinkles. Spa-style facials can hydrate skin, infuse pores with Vitamin C, or address common teen skin imperfections such as acne and drivers-ed notes jotted on the forehead.
Brain food is a horrible misnomer, actually referring to various cerebellum-based jellybeans. The mind benefits much more from tapioca-infused beverages like those available with today’s Groupon.
