Hustler Casino is conveniently located close to the freeway. It offers 36 tables of Texas Holdem, 7 Card Stud, and Omaha. They have 19 California game tables. They hold tournaments on Mondays for a $100+20 buy-in that they limit to the first 150 entrants. They have a nice restaurant, a sports bar, and a snack bar.
I encountered Lucky Duck Swim School a couple of months ago in my search for a place where my daughter can be taught to swim. This place was quite a nice place with a large swimming pool. They enforce pool safety in their instructions which I liked and the instructors seemed to be nice and friendly.
The Griffith Park Merry-Go-Round is located between the Los Angeles Zoo and the Los Feliz park entrance. It is a pretty good sized merry-go-around with very nice horses. It has a large organ that plays waltz and marching music. It is always open on the weekends and I believe it is also open on weekdays duringthe summer only though. My daughter loves to ride it after a stroll in the park.
The Redondo Fun Factory is an okay place to go to have some fun with the whole family. They have a few kiddie rides that my daughter liked and a lot of arcade games as well. The place also has several places to go to eat when hunger strikes. The food are okay as well and the prices are about comparable to other food places in this type of location.
We went to the Adventureplex for the first time to attend the birthday party of my friend's daughter. My kid's eyes were round as saucers when we entered the place. She was enthralled by the huge play structure they had. I could hardly keep her still to wait for the birthday cake to be blown off before she went off to it. They also have a wall for climbing but my child was too small for it.
My daughter went to this preschool a few year ago and she loved the teachers. The always have plenty of fun, learning activities for the kids and provide instructions for at home involvement to promote the kid's education further at home. My daughter loved all their different art projects, those were her favorite activities. When my next child is old enough, we plan to send her there too.
Dr. Kawazoe is a very nice dentist that I have been going to for a couple of years now. He is very professional and has made going to the dentist a not so scary event for me. He's very gentle and explains the procedures he will do. His staff are also very nice and pleasant to talk to.
If you are looking for Japanese food products, Nijiya Market certainly is a good place to go for that. They have quite a large selection of Japanese ingredients and I sometimes shop here when I want to cook something Japanese at home. They also sell some desserts like fruite tarts that I think are tasty.
