Have You Booked a
Graduation Party Spot Yet?

We can still remember our eighth-grade graduation party, held at the SCV's pinnacle of fine dining circa 1992: El Torito. Lucky for you, your guests and your kids, choices have improved since then.

Wolf Creek Restaurant & Brewing Co. A private party room and super-affordable pre-set meal options (ranging from delicious pasta selections to taco bars and more) make this a tasty, convenient all-in-one choice for busy parents. Choose a menu, decide on dessert and you're done; 263-9653

Oggi's Pizza & Brewing Co. Your crew can multitask by watching the game(s) on flatscreen TVs and celebrating your favorite graduate. Gourmet pizzas, sandwiches and more can be devoured in the private party room. The family-friendly restaurant is also home to two new beers (for the college grads, obviously!). Try Old Thumper, an extra-special bitter beer or the new Sam Adams summer lager; 252-7883

The Drink Dr. Ok, the Drink Dr. isn't really a destination, per se. It's a frozen-beverage making machine, though, that will make your at-home or on-location party the most popular graduation destination of all. Rentals include just about everything you need for dozens of delicious alcohol or alcohol-free drinks; 250-6106

Free Fun for Members of the Military
Celebrate National Military Appreciation Month at Mountasia Family Fun Center and Farrell's Ice Cream Parlour Restaurant. Past and present military personnel with valid military photo ID will be treated to one free round of miniature golf and a free Red, White & Blue Thank You Sundae during the month of May. The offer can't be combined with any other specials or coupons; 253-4FUN (386)

A Horse, of Course!
Don-e-brook Farms is just a minute off of Copper Hill Drive, but it's a world away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Give your child memories of a lifetime with an authentic trail ride, pony party or "ride-n-dine" experience. If your cowboy or cowgirl has become truly infatuated with all things "horse," there's nothing better than group, semi-private or private riding lessons. Starting at only $30 per student, this affordable investment will do more than soothe your child's horse-loving soul. Horseback riding builds strength and confidence; improves coordination and critical thinking skills; teaches responsibility; and gets kids outside and engaged with nature. Call to find out more or to make a reservation. Your kids will love you for it!; 297-7669

There's still Time to make
Summer Camp Memories

Yeah, our kids love Valley Trails. (Helllooo... Zip line!) But as parents, we have our own infatuation with the summer camp, and it revolves around convenience. Free extended care (7 a.m. to 6:30 p.m.) that the kids actually like, plus free Express Transportation and complementary lunch? Color us relieved! Valley Trails runs June 13 to August 12; 257-0266

Does your high-energy kid "bounce off the walls?" Great! We know just the summer camp for them. Waller's GymJam Academy offers a mix of gymnastics, crafts and plain-ol'-fun in an extended care program that has kids, well - jumping for joy! Camp starts on June 13; 251-3309;

Summer group classes and Camp VIBE Broadway begin in June at Vibe Performing Arts Studios. Call today to take advantage of professional performance instruction for your little star; 255-7464
