Canadian electrofunk duo Chromeo exhales party-starting inertia, kicking off its Night Falls Tour by rolling out a carpet of dance-floor passports. Melding the talents of guitarist, vocalist, and French-literature buff Dave 1 with the dexterous fingers and throwback savvy of synthmaster P-Thugg, Chromeo has earned reverence from funkophiles for its slick grooves and mastery of jam architecture. Fans can expect congenial beats, riffing Moogs, and songcraft that father-and-son yachts can enjoy together in support of the band's latest album, Business Casual. Inflating the soulful evening, singer, producer, and multi-instrumentalist Mayer Hawthorne channels wandering Motown spirits with a retroactive Detroit sound, and mustachioed party maestro DJ Sammy Bananas sets the scene with genre jumping and remixes that rumble like tubas in a Cuisinart.
Inspired by the same brainwaves as the Build-A-Bear Workshop, RIDEMAKERZ allows visitors construct a customized toy car from the axles up with dozens of options that add up to nearly 650 million unique combinations. Guests begin by choosing a body from a stock of Vipers, Corvettes, Mustangs, trucks, and hot rods that can then be accessorized with free stock parts or specialty chassis, tires, rims, and oil slicks. The hot-lava Chevy Camaro ($32) sports a metaphor for the rubber it plans to burn with orange flames on its sides, and the jewel-blue RZ Rascal body pairs its smooth curves with working headlights and taillights ($22). Sets of multicolored or racing slick tires maintain traction while pushed across carpets, hardwood floors, or up the sides of living-room furniture ($4 for two). Glistening hubcaps ($3–$4 for two), undercarriage-glow lighting ($10), and other car accessories offer further customization, while sound-effect chips ($3) relieve vocal cords strained by persistent engine imitations. Builders can also upgrade to a radio-controlled street chassis ($25) to assert hands-free control over the vehicle's movements.
Located on the grounds of the Anabella Hotel, Tangerine Grill & Patio surrounds guests with warm decor and vibrant dishes that embody the West Coast. The space abounds with the aromas of an eclectic menu that uses regional recipes from local, sustainable sources. Chefs create a caprese salad with tomatoes and basil and craft spicy seafood paella and Santa Cruz-style chicken enchiladas. Diners can sit at tables spaced throughout an elegantly appointed, Spanish mission-style interior, dine al fresco in a garden patio lined with exotic plants, or enjoy their meal under the stars next to the pool. A wine and drink menu is available, with selections ranging from Sauvignon Blanc to their signature drink, the Tangerita. No matter where they dine, visitors are within yodeling distance of Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure, located just across the street.
At The Pizza Press, staffers wear newsboy caps as they take orders for personal pizzas named after famous papers, which arrive at tables atop wooden pizza peels lined with faux-newsprint. Patrons can feast on the Tribune, a mix of pepperoni, italian sausage, and red onion, or "publish" their own, adding a cornucopia of fresh ingredients and sprinkling on the whiskers of famous editors. Patrons hoist frosty glasses into the air, toasting the continued existence of cheese, then nurse seasonal and craft beers from local breweries. Recent offerings have included the Saint Archer I.P.A., which the San Digeo brewery makes with seven types of hops, as well as brews from Hangar 42, Speakeasy, and Bootlegger's Brewery.
While the beer and wine selections are an adults-only treat, younger patrons can feast on kid-sized pizzas, then start eyeing desserts?a practice in which grown-ups may also wish wish to join in. The root beer float station, complete with artisan ice cream, lets patrons create their own frothy treats, and handmade ice-cream sandwiches create the best kind of mess. Afterward, families can head over to Disneyland, which is located right across the street.

When Ronn Teitelbaum opened the first Johnny Rockets location in 1986, his goal was to create a restaurant where people could escape the postmodern blues of everyday life and experience a taste of time-honored Americana. The name itself is a nod to this ideal. It combines the star of a classic American fable, Johnny Appleseed, and a classic car, Oldsmobile’s beefy Rocket 88.
That explains why during dinners at the famous burger joints, you’ll see signs of simpler times, starting with the cooks and servers—dressed head to toe in white, including white paper hats, they look like they’ve fallen out of a wormhole from the 1950s ready to sling shakes and cook up some eats. Behind a stainless-steel bar lined with red leather stools they tend to their traditional diner fare, including burgers and melts with sides such as chili-cheese fries and onion rings. Riding sidecar to each meal is a collection of hand-dipped and hand-spun floats, shakes, and malts topped with whipped cream.
