Simplicity. That's the most important ingredient in all food according to Honest Weight Food Co-op. So to understand what makes their products stand out, it's better to look at what's not on the nutrition label. No artificial colors, flavors, sweeteners, or preservatives. No antibiotics, hormones, or other non-food ingredients. The team at Honest Weight Food Co-op works with local farmers and producers to make sure their standards are met in every product.

That's been Honest Weight Food Co-op's modus operandi since its founding in 1976, and the efforts of the members-owned organization have proved successful. The co-op has expanded into bigger and bigger spaces over the years, until they finally arrived at their current Watervliet Avenue location in 2013. The building brims with fresh meats and fish, in-season produce, natural groceries, and household items such as light bulbs and laundry soap (which also come from eco-friendly, responsible suppliers, naturally).

In addition to storing vast amounts of grocery items and prepared meals, this expansive space also makes it possible to host events ranging from juicing classes to reiki sessions. Honest Weight's outreach programs send educators to local schools to teach about healthy living, and the co-op partners with WAMC public radio to host Food For Thought evenings of food, film, and discussion, at least when attendees are done chewing.

From the Garden's menus are small for a reason. The restaurant is truly committed to only using seasonal, locally sourced ingredients, featured in weekly five-course meals. A recent "Autumn Flavors" menu, for instance, highlighted savory-sweet butternut squash in ravioli with brown-butter sauce, and finished with a cranberry-apple cake with a cherry drizzle. There are typically two available entrees?one with meat and one without?as well as thoughtful, moderately priced wine selections. Wednesday nights are devoted to wine dinners, during which From the Garden's sommeliers discuss food pairings and which grapes are the cutest.

Maxrider's ?4D? theater safely jets participants off into fantastical, four-dimensional worlds bursting with stunning imagery and sound and wind effects.

Riders will have the opportunity to choose from up to 33 different experiences in four categories?Intense, Scary, Rollercoasters, and Family Fun?that include a frightening stroll through an abandoned school and an adrenaline-pumping plunge into a treasure cave. Participants can also adjust the ride with an intensity controller, which makes the effects of the ride stronger or gentler.

Diners at Legends on Pearl dig into a menu of juicy burgers and fried appetizers as sports coverage buzzes on several large flat-screen TVs. After patrons go to bat with the golden spears of fried pickle ($6), oven-baked bread slices and fearless foam fingers can take a swan dive into the gooey salsa queso of a fondue bowl ($8). The ranch-seasoned cowboy burger ($10) stacks a juicy, half-pound patty with bubbling pepper jack and crispy onion rings, and the Draft Pick cheese panini ($7) gives grilled cheese a facelift with a choice of fillings such as mozzarella and crumbled blue.
