Unbirthdays are best celebrated with a Birthday Cake fudge ($8.25 for 8 oz., $16 for 16 oz.), a vanilla-fudge box loaded with mini marshmallows, rainbow sprinkles, and expired birthday wishes. Sink your canines into a caramel-apple pie CraZapple ($11.95), cloaked in fresh-roasted pecans, white chocolate, and cinnamon sugar, or delve deeper into the den of decadence with an old-fashioned strawberry soda-pop float ($4.79), a Sprite sea awash with Titanic-sinking strawberry icecaps. The candy college at City Street Sweets keeps wandering minds occupied with an arsenal of chocolate-drenched course offerings. Channel your inner Einstein at the Chocolate Bar Inventor class ($11.95), in which students are paired with PhD-toting Oompa-Loompas to create an original candy bar bundled up in a wrapper of their own design. The Candy Jewelry Designer course ($16.95) transforms budding fashionistas into haute-couture bling designers with tricks to turn last year's Lifesavers into this year's must-have accessory.

The team at So Nuts! Donuts & Deli is out to prove that everything goes better with a donut?even grilled cheese sandwiches. The menu has an entire section dedicated to grilled cheese donuts: picture a traditional glazed donut cut in half, layered with cheddar and American cheese and maybe an extra topping or two, then grilled to salty-sweet perfection. If cheese sandwiches aren't your thing, they'll gladly use a donut (or two) as a bun on any of their burgers or sandwiches, making So Nuts! one of the only places you can order corned beef or hot roast beef on a donut without anyone blinking an eye. That may all sound rather whimsical, but So Nuts! takes its donuts pretty seriously. The bakers whip up nearly 30 varieties of donuts in unique flavors. Favorites include the Cookie Monster, a chocolate-glazed yeast ring topped with Chips Ahoy pieces, and the Hemingway, a vanilla yeast donut with key lime filling and crushed graham crackers. And the donut-makers are so open to new and creative ideas, they'll even let customers dream up custom donuts using any of the ingredients available in the kitchen.

Perched in wrought-iron chairs at a gleaming marble bar, students and artists sip coffee, sharing inspiration and plans for upcoming projects. Nearby, Tampa Bead Cafe's instructors preside over a range of jewelry-crafting materials, which provide the necessary hardware to follow up on the grand artistic plans under discussion. Beneath the terra cotta–hued walls, shelves brim with beads, metal chains, and wire, as well as less conventional media such as metal clay and polymers. The staff guides visitors along racks of bracelet and necklace supplies, and exclamations of happiness drift from a classroom, where teachers introduce specific styles, such as kumihimo. Students to use real tools such as pliers, cutters, and magnifiers to intimidate their jewelry into making itself, and most courses end with the creation of piece for pupils to treasure. A roster of guest artists, who have included polymer-clay artist Christi Friesen and Maria Rypan, lead style and material-specific workshops.
