I thought I should probably give a shout out to this place since I frequent it…oh…about 5 days a week… The Renaissance Club Sport in Aliso Viejo, CA is a hybrid hotel and fitness club combo. It’s a great place to be a member. The gym is impeccable, the classes and instructors are AWESOME, and the facilities are amazing. You can take a class, shoot some hoops or play racquetball, go hang out at the pool, and even have some cocktails to reward yourself for your hard work….On the weekends during the summer they have a DJ spinning tunes at the pool. They have a tent for bbq-ing and serving cocktails. There is also a cafe with a great menu of smoothies and protein drinks. The outdoor dining/lounge is a great place to relax with friends. On Friday nights they have a really fun reggae band…The club is great for families, singles, etc. If you live in the area, you should def check this place out.
Maybe I’ll see you there….XO, The Kenya Bag
It was a perfect Southern California day when I headed to The Lab in Costa Mesa to hang out w/ the girls. We met at “Habana” for brunch. This is one cool spot. The indoor/outdoor space is done in this old world rustic decor that is very hip. The patio is very large and decorated with lots of plants, flowers, vine, etc. Our meal was awesome, but better yet was the Sangria Blanca. Not to sweet. Just right. They dice up green apples for garnish, which adds some pizzaz to the drink… Make sure to order a pitcher, or two, or three. LOL. After hanging out for almost 2 hrs at Habana, we decided to walk around the shops at both The Lab and The Camp… Never a dull moment looking at the unique clothing, jewelry, art that fills these artisan shops. No outdoor live bands playing today, which was a little disappointing, but it could have been due to the 4th of July holiday…The only thing we purchased were some fireworks at the little stand next to The Lab. Not bad considering it’s quite rare to ever leave without buying at least one article of clothing or jewelry. There is always next time though!
