The clatter of toppling pins resounds through the walls of the 89 locations of Bowling Centers of Southern California, which are scattered across Southern California, Nevada, and Hawaii.

Many of the centers also host private birthday parties, which science has proven to be more fun than birthday parties covered by the paparazzi.

It's not every day that offering to grill at a friend's birthday party leads to a wildly successful business. But in the case of husband and wife team Ana Simon and Rafael Pedroso, it did. What began as just catering eventually transformed into a restaurant, when Ana and Rafael's friends insisted the slow-cooked cuisine was too good to keep under wraps. At Sabor de Vida, the two showcase their love of Brazilian-style barbecue, known as churrasco. Meals begin with the Brazilian-style tapas, or 'petiscos,' such as crispy yuca or polenta. On weekends, the kitchen prepares feijoada, a traditional Brazilian dish of black beans, barbecue beef, and sausage that's smoked like a little league team playing the Yankees.
