Luxy 101 puts a glamorous spin on the traditional sports bar. There isn't just one TV––instead, games unfold on 15 high-definition monitors. Likewise, a patron can order one beer, or order 101 different beers thanks to the vast beer selection that lends the bar its name. Mixologist-crafted cocktails complement the brews, delighting palates with liquors ranging from dragonfruit vodka to Bacardi, and mixers spanning pineapple juice to ice cream.
The food is a similar mix of classic American and upscale fare. A burger and fries, for example, means fries made with duck fat and a fresh burger topped with extras such as avocado and blue cheese, or aged gouda and an egg. The pizza is similarly revamped, from the crust––an artisanal flatbread––to the toppings including fig, prosciutto, and arugula.
Since 1970, golfers have been traversing the 3,039 yards of Scholl Canyon Golf Course, beating back bogies with clubs a combination of and cunning. The William P. Bell design escorts them across fairways of high bermuda and large bentgrass greens, adding up to a par 60 course comprised of six par 4s and 12 par 3s. With just one hole extending to more than 300 yards, the course emphasizes the short game and confers success on those who can dial in their iron play and keep their putts from rolling into a time warp.
Course at a Glance: * 18-hole, par 60 course * Total length of 3,039 yards from the back tees * Course rating of 54.7 from the back tees * Course slope of 88 from the back tees * Two sets of tees per hole?
The palm trees at Royal Vista Golf Club reach high in the clouds, a visual testament to the course's maturation over the past half-century. The course?a 27-hole gem framed to the south by distant mountain peaks?connects wide fairways and small greens in a landscape dotted with sand traps and water hazards. True to the area's rolling topography, many holes stretch over elevation changes that add drama to putts and make carts squeal with delight. Before rounds, guests can enjoy a practice session at the driving range, chipping area, and two practice greens.
Wherever Johnny Allen goes, you're likely to find the sounds of tennis players hard at work: shuffling feet, the rhythm of an extended baseline rally, maybe even the occasional grunt. But you'll also hear the melodies of upbeat tunes—a staple of all Johnny Allen Tennis instruction that underscores his program's emphasis on fun and positivity as motivational tools. Although playing music during every lesson may be an unorthodox stroke, it's fueled a program that now helps more than 400 students improve at seven locations. Allen's success is evident in the many top junior players and scholarship college athletes who have graduated from his program.
As fitness coaches, Robb, Steven, Miguel, and Roldan know that consistency is key. Conversely, so is variation. That's why the trio behind Unum Fitness stocks the gym's schedule with up to five classes a day, with no two sessions providing the same workout. Some workouts of the day include running and rowing, whereas others alternate lunges, squats, and pushups.
At Boomers!, thrill-seeking families and fun-enabling friends can attack a variety of appealing attractions, including mini golf, batting cages, bumper boats, and the button-mashing joys housed inside the exhilarating game room. The Vista location entertains families of sharpshooters with a blacklight-illuminated laser-tag arena before little ones climb and crawl through the Kidopolis play area. The El Cajon and San Diego locations let rivals celebrate the spirit of competition as they fly past each other in speedy go-karts or have a snail-paced Ferris wheel race at the kid's county fair. Unlimited pass holders at the El Cajon location can also scale the 32-foot-tall climbing wall, which, like America, enables citizens to climb to the top via myriad routes.
Stephanie Raye spent nearly a decade healing physically and growing spiritually through yoga before she started teaching in 2002. During each class at her studio, Bikram Yoga Downtown LA, she and her fellow instructors lead a 90-minute series of 26 postures and two breathing exercises inside a heated studio, which keeps muscles limber and reduces injuries. Every posture prepares the body for the next pose, pumps freshly oxygenated blood throughout the body, and brings health and strength to students of all ages and skill levels.
The space is as appealing as the instruction. Gilded with gold mandalas and lotus-inspired patterns, gray walls open up to a spacious studio with floor-to-ceiling mirrors and windows. Anti-bacterial and odor-resistant flooring keep yoga conditions sanitary while students practice, and locker rooms and showers help them clean up after class. A boutique area brims with yoga clothes and accessories, and two-hour parking validation ensures cars have plenty of room to graze on grass, which cars eat now by the way.
