The New Menu that makes them an Old Favorite
Beautiful Bundts make Nothing Bundt Cakes the Sweetest Spot in Town
When you meet Daniel Csotai, executive chef at the Hyatt Regency Valencia and mastermind of the gourmet goodness at Vines Restaurant, it's instantly obvious that this man loves what he does. How could he not? His restaurant, a Santa Clarita staple, is experiencing a revitalization that, by no coincidence, comes at the time of a new menu launch that celebrates everything Csotai and the Hyatt brand stand for: sustainability, a nod to local flavor, exquisite service and a twist on beloved classics.
Executive Chef Peyton Poulsen is a man on a mission; the Oaks Grille at TPC Valencia mainstay is as committed to bringing fresh, local and sustainable finds to Santa Clarita as he is dedicated to creating new and exciting flavors for SCVians to savor. "We source as much as possible regionally and are inspired by those ingredients. This new menu brings unexpected flavors, several with a tropical twist - but they're all distinctly Californian," says Poulsen.
Since Michael Mohammed and his brothers took over the reigns of Chroic Tacos in 2012, the 14-year-old taco shop that started in Newport Beach exploded on the fresh-food map, expanding to 41 locations with 20 in the stages of leasing and construction - and more in the works. Demand is high - with delicious reason!
Wolf Creek Restaurant & Brewing Co. isn't just "in" Santa Clarita; in many ways, it "is" Santa Clarita. Founded by Rob and Laina McFerren 20 years ago, the restaurant has grown alongside its hometown, first expanding its footprint through the addition of an adjacent banquet room, then opening a separate brewing and tasting facility on the Rye Canyon Loop in the Valencia Industrial Center.

This Valentine's Day, prepare to be barraged by love stories that will never be as impressive as the love you should have for your car. With such wowing accolades as, "Best Buy in the Minivan Segment" from Consumer's Digest, "Best New Family Car for 2017" from Cars.com and "2017 North American Utility Vehicle of the Year," it's no surprise that everyone is falling in love with the belle of the ball, the Chrysler Pacifica and, our favorite, the Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid.
Does all that holiday driving have you saying, "Ho, ho... just... no" to your current vehicle? Have you intentionally parked around the block to avoid the walk of shame back to your junker after an office party? Did you have to decide to bring the kids or the presents to Grandma's, because you couldn't fit both?
The people you love the most are going places. These gifts to give, or keep, will get them there in style, safety and comfort.

GET OUT OF TOWN
Don't be one of those guys scrambling around Ralph's the morning of Mother's Day. Salvaging a bouquet from the left-overs. Scrounging for an envelope to match your card. Swearing you're going to put more thought into it next year.
A 100-year Celebration at March Air Force Base April 7th and 8th
The first bottle of bubbly was well on its way to empty as our Mercedes merged onto the 101 freeway, barely five minutes into our trip. Not to worry. There was another bottle already on ice, so I could quickly pop the cork for nearly-instant refills. With nine glasses to keep filled, you've always got to be thinking one bottle ahead.
If you've been at this Valentine's Day thing for a while, sometimes a surprise is in order. Mix it up. Go somewhere new. Do something unexpected; out of character, even.
With a new year comes a new calendar - and the opportunity to fill that calendar with travel plans. Don't call them resolutions. Those just lead to guilt when they're not followed. Instead, think of these as a travel wish list - possibilities for fun in the year ahead.

Two birds, one stone. That's what I needed - what my family needed - earlier this year when I began researching club facilities in the SCV and Valley. Golf clubs, racquet clubs, swim clubs... they were all on my list as I furiously searched for the Holy Grail - a place where my entire crew could go regularly for socialization and recreation.
Santa Clarita is, in many ways, a thriving community because of the thousands of volunteers who donate time and talent to make it so.
The help you need to keep your New Year's goals going.
Confession: I have a Pinterest board dedicated to healthy cooking - but I've never actually made anything I've "pinned." That's why I was more than intrigued when I learned about Plate Therapy, an SCV-based fresh-meal delivery service that specializes in Paleo- and Whole 30-friendly foods that taste as incredible as they look. I've tried meal delivery before, with mild success. But I was never able to find the perfect balance of organic quality, peak freshness, accessible price, convenience and - the most important - flavor. That is, until I tried Plate Therapy.
