Ike’s Place: Walnut Creek Sandwiches

April 22, 2015 9:03 am

Ike’s Place is a popular Walnut Creek spot where you can enjoy a delightful sandwich piled high with tasty ingredients. They may seem a little more expensive than those you'd find elswhere, but diners say the sandwiches at Ike's are well worth the price.

Step up to the counter to place your order from a huge list of quirkily-named choices. The Spiffy Tiffy is a favorite, loaded with avocado, chicken, mushrooms, pepper jack cheese, pesto, and provolone. The Super Mario includes all-beef meatballs, marinara sauce, and mozzarella sticks heaped between bread. The Jaymee Sirewich is made with fried chicken, Ike's yellow barbecue sauce, pepper jack cheese, and ranch dressing.

Ike's Place also offers plenty of vegetarian and vegan options, including the Blind Date with avocado, honey mustard, pepper jack cheese, and vegan breaded chicken. Visit Ike's website to see a full menu and learn more about this Walnut Creek deli.

Pacific Coast Trail Runs: Bay Area Exercise

April 8, 2015 9:03 am

Pacific Coast Trail Runs organizes races of a variety of distances and challenges, from jogs for the first-timer to full-on marathons, all in a beautiful environment. The trails can be hilly, so newbies and old hands alike are advised to bring a water bottle in the event they have to hike uphill to run down, but ultimately the intent is to provide a fun experience and exercise for runners of all skill levels.

The courses are well marked with bright, striped ribbons to ensure no one competing gets lost. The aid stations have been thoroughly stocked with any sort of food or beverage a participant good desire, as well. The race director works hard to establish courses that challenges experienced runners while balancing their needs with those of beginners.
