LazerTag Extreme's 4,500-square-foot arena pits laser-brandishing players against each other as they fight to earn team points and protect their territory amidst outer space–themed obstacles. Each LazerTag mission splits into two six-minute rounds, during which competitors age seven and up discharge rays of laser light at opposing targets while seeking refuge from stray beams behind barriers of space ships and aliens. At each mission's conclusion, teams convene at the scoreboard to view their overall score, individual stats, and personal feelings thermometer. Roving staff members patrol the arena midgame, supplying helpful tips and enforcing LazerTag's safety rules, including a mandate that everyone must help pick up the pieces of laser covering the ground after every mission. Troops of two, four, or six can regroup between missions at the facility's arcade while pitting reflexes against DDR, driving simulators, and golfing games.
A trip to the dentist should be as relaxing as a trip to the spa, according to Dr. Iris Han, owner of Luxe Dental Studio. Inside this oasis of oral wellness, jitters melt faster than Mercury's ration of fresh moon cheese. Movie plots unfold on a screen stationed near an ErgoSoothe chair, whose soft leather gently massages muscles during services such as teeth whitening, digital x-rays, and root-canal therapy. Essential oils emanate soothing scents throughout the studio's treatments, and a hot, clean towel concludes each visit with a burst of refreshment. Dr. Han complements the tranquil atmosphere with a friendly personality and extensive knowledge of smile design, which she's honed at the UCLA School of Dentistry and a series of residencies in the Los Angeles area.

The key ingredients for Indian, Nepalese, and Sri Lankan cuisine line the shelves at Annapurna, a 5-year-old South Asian grocery store. Its stock of more than 100 spice mixes prepare patrons to flavor classics such as tandoori chicken and chana masala, and diverse dal mixes draw on chickpeas, split peas, and lentils for their hearty flavor. Mouth-watering treats such as whole coconuts and packets of papadum—crunchy Indian crackers—complement incense sticks in scents such as lavender and jasmine.Toward the back of the store, a freshly opened deli dishes up hot, ready-to-eat Indian cuisine. Biryanis fuse basmati rice with vegetables or proteins ranging from chicken to tender goat meat, and samosas envelop savory fillings in a golden brown crust. The deli’s smoothie-like lassis neutralize spice with their yogurt bases, calming tongues without requiring them to lick the nearest teddy bear.
