Aya Restaurant


We heard about a Taiwanese restaurant located inside Verona Resort and Spa and decided to try it out.

You can order sets, party trays or a la carte from the menu. We had mixed fish and meat ball soup, cinnamon basil omelet, fried chicken with basil, sausage, stinky tofu and ba-wan (dumplings.)

The Mermaid Tavern and Grille



“Souls of Poets dead and gone,

What Elysium have ye known,

Happy field or mossy cavern,

Choicer than the Mermaid Tavern?”

Lines on the Mermaid Tavern

John Keats –1884

The Mermaid Tavern and Grille is another great local spot. One may say it is a “Greek” restaurant, but they have a pretty good assortment of menu items to please just about anyone.



The restaurant is adorned with mermaid art, from paintings, to sculpture, photographs and tapestries.


The microbrewery can also be seen from inside. Ask the wait staff what is currently available on tap.


The last time we visited we got the black pepper crusted ahi sandwich with wasabi mayo and buffalo chicken quesadilla. I also recommend their lamb gyro and Pacific fish burger.

The Mermaid Tavern and Grille is also a great place to hear live local music.

Mommy & Me Fitness


Hi everyone, this one is for all the (military/dependent) moms who want to take a fitness class but want to bring the little ones too. Mommy & me classes this November are every Monday and Wednesday at 10am at the Hot Spot. It is a sculpting class and the instructor (she is great!) brings all the equipment. (I suggest bringing your own mat if you have one, towel and of course, water).  I brought my 22 month old and 5 month old. It was great for me, and when the little one got cranky I just used him as a weight. Smile
