The most difficult thing about the supercar driving experiences at Oxotic might be the first thing drivers do: actually choosing a ride. he company keeps its fleet of uber rare $300,000 supercars. Once drivers make their selection, though, it's a straight shot to the open road. Each experience begins with a brief orientation, during which instructors explain how every doodad in the car works so drivers don't hit the wrong button and accidentally shoot silly string from the exhaust pipe. The driving experiences themselves range from five to 100 miles in length, and souvenirs?such as high-def video recordings of rides?keep adrenalin rushes going long after the pistons stop pumping.

Larry H. Miller Nissan's trained technicians reverse the effects of automobile aging by employing contemporary tools and experienced eyes for safer, more efficient transportation. Vehicular healers begin each 30- to 45-minute checkup with a 27-point inspection that evaluates roadsters' air conditioning, brakes, lights, cholesterol, and other parts to ensure overall motorized health.

With a menu comprised only of two sections—'before tacos' and 'tacos'—T/aco's chef Matt Collier understands the power of the white-glove approach. In a recent interview, he divulged to Thrillist that each tortilla, like everything else on the restaurant's menu, is handmade. Harnessing a diverse culinary palette of fresh herbs and ingredients to craft bold flavors, Chef Matt and his team top their braised pork belly, Ahi tuna, and veggie tacos with such gourmet fixings as poblano crema, queso cotija, and chayote-squash salsa. To add a touch of diversity to their taco-heavy menu, they whip up fresh ceviches and guacamole with housemade chips. T/aco's bartenders have also honed an all-important craft. They mix smoky and fruity margaritas with 25 reposado, anejo, and blanco tequilas—one for each year an American must live before she can eat tacos in the US House of Representatives.
