Throughout wedding season, bells in the century-old Spanish chapel at Chapel Creek Winery ring out across the grape fields. Students of Redlands Community College's enology and viticulture program tend to the vines’ more than 46 grape varieties, taking part in each step of the winemaking process. They grow, crush, and reanimate the grapes before fermenting and bottling the wine. Guests visiting the winery can tour the fields, watch the students in action, and stomp on grapes inside wooden barrels.
LuSh Berries specializes in a smorgasbord of creamy frozen yogurt treats and fresh, delicious crêpes to delight dessert-friendly palates. A wide variety of constantly changing flavors can be Slip N' Slided across the taste buds, including chocolate, watermelon, pineapple, lemon raspberry, and lychee. The rich, tart flavors of LuSh Berries’ probiotic fro-yos ($0.39/oz.) can be self-served in 16 oz. or 24 oz. sizes, then garnished with a selection of more than 40 different toppings, ranging from nature's candy (strawberry, blueberry, and banana) to mad scientist's candy (caramel, Cap'n Crunch cereal, Butterfingers, and sprinkles). If cold and sweet things remind you of the beautiful snow woman who left you last spring, stick to warm and equally decadent dessert crêpes such as the LuSh Berry Heaven crêpe ($5.50) and the cheesecake crêpe ($5.75). Lunchtime office escapees can also order savory entree crêpes (served with chips) such as the club crêpe ($7.85), which comes with bacon, ham, smoked turkey, and American cheese, or transform it into the smokin’ strip crêpe ($6.75), which subtracts the ham and exchanges the American cheese for a slice of something that doesn’t conjure up images of Uncle Sam diving into a butter churn.

Aspiring actors work together, bolstering communication skills as they rehearse the nuanced spectrum of pirate emotions and gain self-confidence with every mimicked parrot squawk. Fourth through 8th graders comprise the main cast, learning to collaborate as they pen the show's plot and play games of human Jenga. Junior cast members in 3rd and lower grades form a separate contingent to perfect their roles as a band of pirates marauding their way into the same show.
