Lounge33, though newcomer on the block as far as Riverside’s night life is concerned, has developed quite a following with it’s hip upscale decor, lighted bar tops, and martinis, martinis, martinis.

The night that I passed by the place was alive with classic rock music, from DJ Tom Edison.

For those of you following this blog, you know that this place has become my new “home away from home”.

Not because I am injury prone, or for health issues, but because of their hosting the Riverside 365 Gallery.

Yesterday, with lighting up and canvas finally hung (though more to come), I finally had the chance to stand back and take a look.

It was nice to watch people stopping to look, discuss the images, and try to figure out where each image was taken.

In the short time that I was there, a few people (7 or 8) stopped in to visit and chat with me.

What a great experience.

Any part of Riverside that you would like to see in the gallery?

This image was taken as I was walking out, at closing time.   I love this building!

Day104 Riverside Aquatic Center

Riverside Aquatic Center

RCC will soon be home to a state of the art Aquatic Complex.

It will feature a 65-meter pool, which can be sectioned off to run several activities at the same time; 10-, 7-, 5-, 3- and 1-meter diving boards; and seating for 800. It will be built near the college’s two existing pools, which will continue to be used for training and recreation.

The center will host competitions and serve as a training facility for aquatic teams, whose members will no longer have to drive to Orange County to use a similar facility.

I have been told that one of the center’s biggest boasts will be the construction of a “fast” pool.

So what is a “fast” pool?
Now personally, I don’t know what makes a pool fast, nor did many of the people of whom I have questioned concerning the matter.

If you find yourself losing sleep over this matter, feel free to let me know, and I am sure that I can make up some believable information to sooth your restless nights!
