At Casa Don Diego Restaurant, it's not uncommon to overhear grandparents reminiscing about their favorite moments at the restaurant. Grandchildren lean in closer for a better listen to stories that, undoubtedly, find their way back to the food. Called an "old-school Mexican gathering spot" by the San Diego Reader, Casa Don Diego has been filling empty Chula Vista bellies since 1969. Today, the restaurant introduces new generations to its fresh chicken and beef fajitas, and arrachera steak served on a hot skillet with charro, or cowboy-style beans. When hints of spices begin to sneak up, of-age patrons can douse the flames by belly-flopping into 72-ounce margarita pitchers.

Green Tea Hawaii's supplements expedite the process of losing weight. The company’s flagship item, a nutrient-rich powdered drink, dissolves into water and becomes a slenderizing cocktail of green-tea antioxidants, natural caffeine, and amino acids. Each serving of the fruit-flavored drink boosts metabolism and unlocks the ability to smell colors. Green coffee bean extract and Montagna coffee also deliver a natural dose of caffeine, and raspberry ketones increase the body's ability to burn fat via fruit compounds. Various other powdered drinks soak into the body and replenish vital nutrients.

Though at least 130 miles and 80 years of history separate golden-age Hollywood from modern-day National City, Cafe La Maze bridges the gap. During the 1940s, this steakhouse served as a playground for movie stars headed to Tijuana, Mexico. Here, they could tuck in to prime rib and lobster on the lower level, or gamble the night away with card sharks such as the Marx Brothers and eponymous restaurateur Marcel Lamaze in a hidden room upstairs.

Today, diners soak up auras of these legends in the same tufted booths where Bing Crosby and Clark Gable most likely lingered at the eatery's grand opening. Candles, chandeliers, and a golden ceiling cast a warm glow across tables as groups savor shrimp cocktails and slice into juicy cuts of top sirloin, new york strip, and filet mignon. Some evenings live music scores meals, and on karaoke nights guests can harmonize with friends as the portraits that line the damask-print walls try to remember the words. Those seeking a more low-key gathering can book the banquet room, which teems with enough red-vinyl seats for up to 70 close friends or cardboard cutouts of their likenesses.

After a missionary trip in Bolivia, Anton Steinhart returned to the States dissatisfied. He’d helped poor women in Bolivia learn to use sewing machines so they could sell products in America and pull themselves out of destitution. But he returned to his home country only to see it riddled with its own poverty. He yearned to make a difference, but he couldn’t figure out how. All he had was a good heart. And years of experience in the wine industry.

Inspired, Steinhart moved with a sense of urgency. He founded Wines for Humanity, a wine-tasting company with a charitable bent. Since it was founded in 2007, the wine organization has raised more than a million dollars for families on the verge of homelessness through benefit wine tastings.

A catalog of wines sourced from award-winning international vineyards powers each in-home tasting led by a wine adviser. He or she shares tips for fully experiencing each pour’s aroma and texture, such as to avoid using wine only as rouge; the advisor also educates guests on pairing wine with food. After each event, tasters can select bottles for themselves, and a percentage of the proceeds from each bottle goes to charity, satisfying Steinhart’s desire to help those in need.
