Tips to Keep Your Bike Secure at Our Anaheim Apartment

September 30th, 2014

Owning a bicycle is a great advantage in this day and age. Rising gas prices make for an expensive commute, and the internet has become a huge distraction for those of us who want to work out and can’t find the time. Owning a bike helps in many ways.

Our eco-friendly apartments in Anaheim with bicycle parking take full advantage of riding. That is why we have a few helpful tips to keep your bike secure at our apartments in Anaheim with bicycle parking.

  • This might seem obvious, but you should always lock your bicycle. Even if you are just running inside your apartment for a moment, make sure to lock up your bike. Thieves take advantage of an opportunity, and a bike without a lock is a beacon to them.
  • Locking your bike to a bike rack is another excellent way to assure that your bike stays safe. Parking in a weird or out-of-view place is another way of giving thieves the chance to strike.
  • If you use a U-Lock, make sure that you attach it to your bike by passing it through your rear wheel rim and then around a secure bike rack or post. If you keep the lock within the frame, it makes it very difficult, nearly impossible, to steal the bike by removing the rear tire.
  • Always have an extra lock, or several. Keep one at home, one at work, one in a backpack. This will lessen the chances of forgetting to have a lock when you desperately need one.
  • Remove any loose gear, such as lights or a water bottle, before leaving your bike. These are also easy targets.

Mongolian barbecues have known the secret of cooking on a huge grill for years. Now you can create Italian, American, Latin, and Asian flavors at the Fire and Ice Grill and Bar.

At one of the most ingenious restaurants in Anaheim, patrons can create their own flavors, ensuring that each gets the perfect dinner.

Begin your culinary adventure by filling a bowl with your favorite ingredients. Next, select a basic sauce, and add herbs, oils, and spices according to your taste. Deliver it to the grill for the chefs to grill your dinner before your eyes. Enjoy your meal.

No one leaves Fire and Ice hungry. It’s an all-you-can-eat meal, so start the process again with the same ingredients, or go for a brand new dish. You will be amazed at the vast number of choices you have with various styles of pasta, tomatoes, calamari, sausage, and more. Sauces include marinara, margarita pomodoro, Alfredo, pesto cream, and white wine garlic.

Sunday night is Salsa night at Fire and Ice. From Monday through Friday, you can get three, four, and five dollar specials during happy hour (from 4 pm to 7 pm).

Every Friday and Saturday night, live DJs will keep the music playing by the outdoor fire pit. It’s a great place for a party!

While there might be other restaurants in Anaheim closer to our apartments, it is worth the eight-mile drive. At 321 West Katella Avenue, it is just north of Disneyland. Take the CA-57 south to Katella, and turn west.

From our convenient location at The Crossing, you can enjoy the nightlife of Orange County and the beach cities to the south in mere minutes.

Go Green in Anaheim: Try These Substitutes for Bleach

September 26th, 2014

When you’re trying to transition to an all-green, eco-friendly home, there are many details of life that slip through the cracks.

Bleach, an item found in every home, can be replaced easily and eco-efficiently with a few additives to your detergent or even some pre-wash techniques.

The key to green apartments in Anaheim is focusing on everything, from gas and food waste to the seemingly small concept of bleach. Try these techniques to keep your clothes prim and proper, not to mention eco-friendly:

  • Add a half-cup of baking soda to your detergent for brighter, whiter whites. If you still feel the need to use bleach, toss in baking soda and cut back on your bleach use.
  • Combine six parts water with one part distilled vinegar, and soak your clothes in it overnight, then wash.
  • Using oxygen-based bleach is more eco-friendly, and if you allow clothes to soak in it overnight, you will allow it to work just as quickly as chlorine bleach.
  • For all-white loads, use a cup of hydrogen peroxide with detergent.
  • Air-dry! Hanging your clothes outside allows UV rays to both bleach and disinfect your whites.

Whether you’re trying to reduce your carbon footprint or are simply ready for a change of pace in our green apartments in Anaheim, these tips will put you on the path toward a greener life.

Explore Chinese History at Heavenly Horses Exhibit in Bowers Museum

This exhibit is currently at Bowers Museum, which is located at 2002 North Main Street. This is approximately one mile from our modern Anaheim apartments. Exhibit hours are as follows: from 10 am to 4 pm.

This exhibit happens through October 16th, and admission prices are affordable. Adults are $13 during the weekdays and $15 on the weekends. Seniors and students are $10 on weekdays and $12 on the weekends. Those who are under age 12 are free of charge.

Horses have had a tremendous impact on both the Chinese and Japanese culture. These magnificent creatures were used both in trade work and for recreational purposes. They also were important in mythology, religion, folklore, and philosophy in both of these cultures.

Most of the early pictures of Chinese horses were sculptures made from pottery, bronze, or stone. They were placed at the graves of a select few and were meant to enter the afterlife with the deceased. In Japan, the horse became a symbol of warfare and also of power and refinement.

Of all of the events at Bower Museum, you do not want to miss out on the Heavenly Horses exhibit. Make plans to go with friends or family today!

  • The kids will enjoy the interactive Kidzone where they can make Halloween masks, macaroni necklaces, and other arts and crafts. Macaroni Kid Irvine sponsors the activity where children can let their own creativity take flight. New York Life will provide free child ID kits, including digital fingerprinting and photographs.

Cheer on the Anaheim Ducks in October’s Home Games

September 3rd, 2014

The 2013-14 NHL season ended with a team from southern California hosting the Stanley Cup. Unfortunately, that team was the Los Angeles Kings and not the Anaheim Ducks.

To make matters worse, it was the same Kings team to end the Ducks season in the Stanley Cup Western Conference semifinals. Our Anaheim apartments near the Honda Center make it easy to catch the action of the upcoming season.

An already explosive offensive, led by captain Ryan Geztlaf (87 points) and Corey Perry (82 points), is set to be even more impressive this season with the addition of Ryan Kesler, who racked up 43 points on 25 goals and 18 assists in last year’s campaign for the Vancouver Canucks.

Youngster Frederik Andersen of Denmark will likely get a majority of the playing time in net after an outstanding rookie campaign, in which he went 20-5 in the regular season, though he struggled at times in the playoffs.

The Ducks must take their act on the road for four games before finally arriving at the Honda Center for their home opener against a tough Minnesota Wild team on October 17th.

Anaheim then has four more home games, all in a row, in the month of October. Opponents are the Buffalo Sabres on October 22nd, the Columbus Blue Jackets on October 24th, and the in-state foe Sharks of San Jose on October 26th.
