Rome – In Liquor ~ Buena Park


Rome-In Liquor ~ 6265 Auto Center Dr. ~ Buena Park

Family owned and operated for 21+ years, Rome-In Liquor has made a home for itself on this spit of land off the 5 freeway & Western and down the road from the Jain Center of Southern California. We like a place that shows its age, and the Rome-Ins have accumulated an eclectic collection of liquor sales paraphenalia, insulating your home away from home with local color. The caged cashier’s bunker is non-threatening, as are the amiable brothers behind the till. The store sports a copy machine, and a pay-phone out front: two handy conveniences infrequently found when you need them these days. Find t- shirts, hats, lottery tix, and liquor- lots of liquor.

Feeling Katy Peryy-ish? This vintage clothing store has the feeling of a trendy boutique more than a gently used clothing store. The space is visually exciting- bags, boots, wigs and jewelry strategically arranged amongst the clothing. There are many name brands and styles from a previous era at reasonable prices. A great place to find a treasure!

Stevens Garden ~ San Juan Capistrano


Stevens Garden ~ 27401 Ortega Highway ~ (949) 481−2632 ~ Open ​8 am-5 pm 7 days a week ~ San Juan Capistrano

Stevens Garden, less than a mile from the Ortega Hwy exit off the 5, displays one of the most extensive selections of pots and garden fountains you will find anywhere in Southern California. Trails throughout the property wind below the lush canopy alive with bird song and reveal fish ponds, fountains, and troves of pottery stacked upon pottery. The visuals are wondrous and tranquility is the feeling. You might say that here you can allow the pot to find you. In addition, the kind crew running Stevens Garden maintain a quality selection of succulents for sale. One of the highlights of their collection is an array of benches and chairs, more like thrones, fashioned from re-purposed tree stumps. Let your imagination go wild.

CDA ~ Anaheim Convention Center


California Dental Association ~ The Art & Science of Dentistry ~ Anaheim Convention Center ~ Anaheim ~ CA

James Worthy, NBA Hall of Fame LAKER, was signing autographs at the California Dental Association’s annual super-conference in Anaheim. If you have ever wondered all there is to know about dentistry, this is the convention for you. Find Lakers, free pens and toothpaste, drilling demonstrations and even wine tasting. The “Barcelona On The Go” food truck, known to serve a mighty tortilla española, was parked out front for Friday’s “Party In The Plaza”. As one would expect from a group dedicated to bringing out your best smile, the CDA is a busy buzzing marketplace of conviviality and all the things you’d expect to find in a dental office, and then some.

The California Dental Association, more commonly known as CDA, is a non-profit organization representing dentists in California. Founded in 1870, CDA supports its members in their practices in service to their patients and the public through innovation in education, advocacy and related programs. CDA also contributes to the oral health of Californians through various comprehensive programs and advocacy. CDA’s membership consists of nearly 25,000 dentists in 32 local dental societies throughout the state, making it the largest constituent of the American Dental Association.

CDA holds its biannual convention, CDA Presents The Art and Science of Dentistry in Anaheim and San Francisco each year. The meetings, which are considered some of the largest dental conventions in the country and the largest on the west coast, offer lectures, technical exhibits and the opportunity for dental professionals to fulfill continuing education requirements. – wikipedia
