If horses could run a business without accidentally eating important documents, they?d head up Equine Escapes, a business dedicated to honoring the majesty and beauty of equines. Riders gain extra respect for their gentle companions during guided trail rides and retreats that explore the area?s scenic wooded terrain. Each guest has ample opportunities to meet and develop an open rapport with their four-legged counterparts through a complicated system of tongue clicks. Equine Escapes also hosts birthday parties.
In her own words, Adina Roberts has dedicated her life to horses—in 2009, she even quit her job as an executive to work with them full-time. She'd been offering lessons on the side for years before that, but finally decided it was time to totally immerse herself in her passion. At Punk Rock Pony, she focuses all of her attention on training and teaching kids and beginner adults how to ride, as well as taking special care of ponies—including a friendly newborn who loves visitors—and problem horses with a history of covering stable walls in graffiti. She holds all of these lessons on a large acreage brimming with wildlife such as rabbits and oxes, providing an idyllic arena for people to connect with nature and the majestic steeds. For more advanced riders, she also offers the unique experience of riding "naked," a challenging style in which the horse is bareback and bridle-less.
Blanketed in wall-to-wall trampolines, Sky High Sports delights barefoot fun-seekers with springy terrain and an exclusive court for jumpers 8 and younger. Guests can hone front flips, back flips, and belly flops during intense free-bounce sessions. Each trampoline comes equipped with a specially designed spring-loaded frame and thick, 2-inch safety pads that grant patrons a landing cushier than a corner office at a marshmallow factory. Stuffed with blocks of spongy, body-molding material, a foam pit dares treasure-seekers to fling themselves in or scour its depths for the lost contents of bygone pockets. Pintsize aerialist posses can safely practice their synchronized Salchows on 360 degrees of trampoline walls while court supervisors watch from the sidelines and award hard-earned praise with oversize scorecards.
Sky High also offers AIRobics fitness classes and monthly dodge-ball tournaments to help jumpers explore the outermost stratospheres of trampoline possibilities.
Lucky Strike Lanes debuted its first location in Hollywood. Wanting to pay homage to its predecessor, Lucky Strike purchased Lane #7 from Star Lanes and made it Lucky Strike Hollywood’s bar. It’s been good luck ever since. Seven years and 19 locations later Lucky Strike Lanes continues to roll its way across the country.
