Petra Zavaleta, from East LA’s street food operation Barbakush, is the chef behind Lanea and is known as the “Barbacoa Queen of Los Angeles.” Petra serves traditional lamb barbacoa by way of Puebla, Mexico. Her and her husband, and her sons work together to create their lamb barbacoa, which is a true labor of love. They source the lamb locally from Chino Hills and build a traditional underground barbecue oven in their backyard cooking the entire lamb over wood and maguey leaves coals.  Petra learned this ancient method of butchering and barbecuing from her parents and grandparents in Puebla at age 10, and became an LA Legend with a secret restaurant at her house before joining forces with Lanea in 2019 to offer her famed barbacoa tacos on the Westside of Los Angeles. Petra’s barbacoa tacos pair perfectly with Lanea’s cocktail program including over 400 varieties of Mezcals and tequilas, and hand-crafted cocktails.

About The Adventure Park at Nashville

Sporting 12 different courses, including 15 zip lines, and 156 different elements, The Adventure Park is the largest attraction of its kind in the Nashville area offering fun for adventurers of all ages and ability levels.  

There are trails suitable for kids, teens, adults, and groups. These trails consist of platforms installed in the trees and connected by various configurations of cable, wood, and rope to form “crossings” of different kinds including the ever-popular zip lines. Climbers wear harnesses that are doubly secured to safety cables using the Park’s “always locked on” system of interlocking safety clips. Before venturing onto the trails, climbers receive an interactive orientation and practice session. Non-climbing family and friends are admitted free of charge to share the experience on the ground by following along on the walking path below the courses, relaxing at the picnic tables, and enjoying the community firepit.

In addition to trials, zip-lining, and treetop climbing, the park has added a NEW Outdoor Axe Throwing activity making us Nashville’s only outdoor axe throwing venue.

Plus, the “Glow In The Park” returns on Saturday nights with the lights in the treetop aerial trails all colorfully aglow.

The Adventure Park is open to the general public and is located only 15 minutes from downtown Nashville, on about six acres of forest on the grounds of the Gordon JCC, at 801 Percy Warner Blvd in West Meade.

The Park’s friendly staff is available to answer questions and assist all guests from the moment customers arrive until the moment they conclude their climb.

Throughout the experience, guests can enjoy cold beverages and frozen treats. After each safari tram, guests will return to the property’s picnic area to continue to experience educational encounters with other animals. The three new safari experiences include:

The CVB’s “virtual road team” plans to keep motivating those participating in the GO 92.0 by highlighting fun facts about Green Bay landmarks and tourist attractions.

“Many people have become active in the outdoors. Whether you’re biking a trail, walking your dog or hiking a path to see a waterfall, you’re challenging yourself to get out into nature,” says Toni Jaeckles, CVB Partnerships Director. “This virtual challenge can be done anywhere, whether you are at home or on the road,” she added.

“We’ve even created a version for our youngest athletes. There’s a 9.20 Kids Movement Challenge. We hope everyone in the family will participate,” says Jaeckles.
