Pop Corns' popologists use large wooden paddles to stir fresh, air-popped kernels with sweet and savory ingredients. Maize is harvested before being detonated into caramel, cheese, and kettle corn and stuffed into bags ($3.08+ for small) or golden one-gallon tins ($18.95). Chocolate-caramel popcorn comes gilded with molten caramel and ensconced in a chocolate shell for a treat as sweet as a love poem from a gummi bear. At the Fort Lauderdale location, a sundae bar encourages dairy bedazzling with homemade Yo Mama's ice cream and an array of toppings. Prices vary by location.

Though there are 130 For Eyes Optical stores around the United States, the company still has the heart of a small start-up. Owned and operated since 1972, when a small group of friends started it in Philadelphia, aiming for quality eyewear manufacturing as well as customer service. These same friends, aided by a few family members, still lead the franchise today. They ensure that each location adheres to their original principles and mandates for mustard-colored shag carpets.
In each store, expert independent doctors test clients' visual acuity and general eye health with comprehensive exams. Then, a store associate helps each person outfit their eyes with designer frames by brands such as Ray-Ban, Prada, D&G, and Versace. For Eyes Optical has its own advanced 40,000-square foot optical lab in in Hialeah, Florida, where technicians shape, surface, and coat the lenses to fit each person's exact prescription. After creating the lenses—whether plastic, polycarbonate, or trivex Toughlites—they inspect and fit each into its corresponding frame by hand, a process that ensures quality control and guards against the robots, whose first objective is to hinder our eyesight.
Kenny Tang, the chef behind eponymous eatery Kenny Tangs, began his culinary career more than three decades ago. Under the tutelage of one of China's most distinguished chefs, he learned to craft exquisite dim sum in the Chinese tradition. Today, he continues to create savory dumplings, wontons, and other traditional dim sum treats, but has also designed his own arsenal of upscale Asian-fusion dishes. His menu has won fans across the nation, including big-name politicians such as George W. Bush and Barack Obama.
On a typical night at Kenny Tangs, the kitchen fills with the aroma of whole ducks roasting and tender beef sizzling in woks with fragrant orange peel. Chefs sauté noodles with ingredients such as barbecue pork or wild mushrooms, and sear filets of Scottish salmon. Guests can end their meals on a sweet note by ordering dessert such as banana rolls or green tea ice cream, or by pulling their best Shirley Temple impression while tipping the waiter.
