Courts Plus members will enjoy brand new food and beverage offerings beginning June 1 thanks to JBarron’s, an independent restaurateur located in the space formerly known as Courts Café.

JBarron’s offers an extensive breakfast menu including sausage, eggs, pancakes, bagels, and more, as well as lunch and dinner options such as paninis, quesadillas, salads, and sandwiches. The kids’ menu includes mac & cheese, hot dogs, and chicken nuggets, as well as healthy snacks such as fruit cups and veggie cups.
The new restaurant features extended hours; JBarron’s is open Monday-Friday from 7:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m. Tuesday evening hours are 4-7 p.m.

Now located on the first floor of Courts Plus, the new and improved Kids Plus childcare center boasts unique opportunities for creative play. With a stage for kids to host dramatic performances, dance, or just play, there's no doubt as to the centerpiece of the new space. The new Kids Plus offers dedicated areas for play and "work," with a quiet library room for the older kids featuring a computer and loads of books, thanks to a donation from the Elmhurst Public Library. There's also a separate playroom featuring a climb-on alligator toy, mats, and cubbies, as well as a separate area with play kitchen and ball pit.
According to Kids Plus Supervisor Carolyn Kelley, "We're really accenting dramatic play - we have a stage, we have room for gross motor play. We also have a quiet library for homework for the older children, and we encourage art - we have "messy areas" devoted to paint, playdough, and clay. We truly have something for everyone." For more information on Kids Plus, contact Carolyn Kelley at email@example.com.
Do you Foam Roll? As an active individual, it is important to keep our muscles in tip-top shape to prevent injury and keep the muscles flexible and functional. One way we can do this is by “foam rolling”. Foam Rolling provides self-myofascial release or “self massage” by putting pressure on the area which results in released muscle tightness. Having acute muscle tightness can result in decreased flexibility and performance, pain and injuries. Foam Rolling can help bring muscles back to normal function. Normal function means that the muscles are healthy and ready to perform. Take time to foam roll after each workout as part of your stretching routine. Courts Plus offers foam rollers in the stretching area near the mats. Members -Look for information coming soon on the Foam Rolling seminar being offered in October!
