The Oaks Grille at TPC Valencia has something to celebrate - or, more accurately, someone. New Executive Chef Peyton Poulsen, a mainstay at the fine-dining restaurant since his days as a busser (He did a stint in 2007 before attending culinary school.), has cultivated a kitchen community that is dedicated to from-scratch cuisine.
Sabor Cocina Mexicana is the SCV equivalent of a "stay-cation." You only have to travel to the Bridgeport Marketplace in Valencia to escape to an authentic, luxurious Mexican restaurant that feels distinctively south of the border - with a twist.
The patio at Marston's Restaurant in the Bridgeport Marketplace is my happy place. This is where I meet with friends, sip wine with my hubby and even down an iced tea solo in between client meetings. I always love it there - but spring afternoons and summer nights are my favorite times to enjoy Chef Jim's culinary creations.
The sweetest dessert you'll treat yourself to this month comes with a tasty reward for local equestrian therapy program Carousel Ranch.
Whether you prefer the heart-stirring twang of a country song, the hilarity of talented animals or the heavy beat of a drum, the 2015-16 Season at the Santa Clarita Performing Arts Center (PAC) at College of the Canyons has exactly what you need for an unforgettable afternoon or evening out on the town.
At an all-too-rare "adults only" party at a friend's home, I shared how I had spent the day prior. "My son and I played laser tag," I said, "It's our go-to 'date' now." Without any more prompting, several of my dining companions perked up, replied nearly simultaneously and with an eagerness that had yet to be shown all night: "Have you ever been to Valencia Laser Blast?!"
