Kangaroo Jac's avenue of inflatable structures bustles with giggling swarms of children 10 and younger. During walk-in play, youngsters milk the all-access admission by repeatedly plummeting down the safe but steep fortress slide, hurdling over obstacles in the Millennium combo, and exploring the 1,000 square feet Adrenaline maze, elaborate enough to house a balloon animal Citizen Kane. Staff members help organize and clean up after parties, hosted in a private room where each child can gorge themselves on pizza, drinks, and birthday wishes. The parent area's WiFi keeps adults up-to-date on national news, whereas the toddler-only Dino Lake inflatable area keeps tots up to date on local gibberish.

When a comedy club, concert hall, sports stadium, or expo center hasn't sold all its tickets, and it's too late to break out the venue shrink ray, the venue relies on On The List to make sure the house is as full as possible. Calling itself the "comp ticket underground," On The List takes those extra seats and offers them to its members for no cost beyond the annual membership fee. In other words, members get a year's worth of mystery events for one flat rate. That way, attendees get to see all kinds of shows, events organizers get to show off their venues, and chair makers never get the dejected feeling that their work is going unappreciated.

Rodgers' Banana Pudding Sauce stems from a family tradition. As a child, Reggie Rodgers used to wait eagerly to lick the bowl clean after his mom made banana pudding. As an adult, he continued the same tradition, except this time, he was the pudding chef and his two daughters watched with eager eyes. When they reached adulthood and Reggie retired from the Navy, his daughters suggested they start a banana-pudding business and sell the creamy treat in jars so other families could experience what they did growing up. Reggie agreed, and using his family recipe, Rodgers' Banana Pudding Sauce was born.

A stroll through Enchanted Forest Nursery is like going on a nature hike, except you can take all of the scenery home with you. The wooded nursery contains trees, shrubs, perennials, and annuals, as well as tranquil koi tanks that can put even a murderous Aquaman at ease. More wildlife makes its home in and around the onsite pond, where frogs and ducks swim amid water plants. The wide expanse of plants, flowers, and garden accessories, including natural stones sold by the pound, sprawls across more than 10,000 square feet.
