On any given night, it's hard to tell whether Design & Wine Eat• Drink• Paint is hosting a painting class or a party. Apron-clad artists can browse a menu for made-to-order vegetarian or pescetarian sandwiches, chat and eat, and then return to their easels, where they chat and paint. This is the typical experience at Design & Wine, where every painting class equals a chatty social event. Instructors work with guests of every experience level, furnishing them with 16"x20" prestretched canvases, nontoxic acrylic paints, brushes, easels, and aprons before leading step-by-step instruction in re-creating the evening's featured painting. Students may also venture into their own projects should inspiration strike or gently knock on their cerebrums. Come the end of the night, instructors encourage students to tote their work home and replace their very expensive televisions with it.
Playing in Las Vegas’ backyards can be hard since the temperature often surpasses 100 degrees. That’s why Childs' Play Las Vegas created an indoor space away from the dessert sun’s sweltering rays, allowing kids to safely expend their energy on a sprawling, state-of-the-art play structure from Backyard Adventures. Designed for the climbing and sliding needs of kids eight and under, the giant play set includes rock-climbing walls, a spiral slide, several rocket slides, and roomy forts. The space’s other activities range from Apple computers loaded with educational games to a mini-basketball court. Over in the toddler area, building blocks and games entrance children too young to play with the big kids but too old to spent hours wondering if their foot is an actual part of their body.
At Childs’ Play Las Vegas’ southwest location, playtime is a free treat for kids who patiently sit through portraiture sessions at the facility’s photography studio. More treats, such as Hello Kitty dolls, stock either location’s toy boutiques, while optional add-ons, such as visits from Elmo, enliven weekend birthday parties. Along with open-play sessions, weekdays at Childs’ Play include classes in subjects such as tumbling, karate, and music. As kids play and learn, parents can relax with complementary cups of coffee, free Wi-Fi, and a big screen television in an area designed just for grown-ups.
Little did Lisa Cornish know when she was learning to cook in her Sicilian grandmother’s kitchen that the skills she was learning would lead her to the other side of the globe.

Through Chef@YourHome, Chef Lisa redefines the idea of the personal chef, crafting in-home meals to match to client’s events. Some of her popular menus include an Asian-inflected spread of miso soup, pan-seared sesame salmon, and chilled Thai-style summer rolls; alternatively, the Mediterranean buffet plies diners with olive, feta and cucumber skewers, chicken francese, and penne pasta in pink vodka sauce. Chef Lisa shares her mastery of the kitchen either by preheating the oven without building a fire or through cooking classes conducted in students’ homes or one of her own personal kitchens.
