Chef Pri’s gustatory adventures meet at the intersection of Thai specialty dishes, American comfort food, and international influence. Tables play host to artfully wrapped Japanese sushi and curries accented by pineapple and butternut squash. Chicken or shrimp cozy up to stir-fried noodles, and for heartier food, Chef Pri piles pot-roasted duck infused with cinnamon atop a sautéed spinach and garlic chili sauce.
The restaurant’s dining room exemplifies the same modernity found in the menu, with coal-black ceilings and geometric artwork against mustard-hued walls. Burnt yellow lights hang like glowing champagne glasses above Jasmine’s fully stocked bar, where diners can retreat for a cocktail or wine by the glass.
With your arm armed with a wristband, you'll be free to revel in unfettered access to all of Sam's Fun City's rides and special attractions. Start by getting your vroom-vrooms out at Kart City, a lawless land of underage driving whose mayor takes bribes of red Starburst. Children nostalgic for the simple joys of early infancy can take a trip to Yesterville and go for a spin on the Jitter Bug Swinger. For those who'd rather reminisce about the more recent past, bring back the sandwich you ate an hour ago with a ride on the Give Peace-a-Whirl tilt-a-whirl. A round of Hollywood mini-golf gives you 18 opportunities to hone your victory dance's jazz hands and pirouettes, while an indoor play area provides welcome relief from the sun's crushing gravity with two giant inflatables and a three-story play structure.

At Nippon Sushi and Grill, the lunch ($10.49) and dinner buffets ($12.99; $14.99 after 7 p.m.) line bellies with an unlimited stockpile of hand-rolled sushi and traditional Japanese fare. Sushi chefs wrap maki rolls by hand around a colorful rainbow of ingredients, ranging from red chunks of fresh tuna to thin green avocados. Fires seal moisture inside fillets of grilled fish, and healthy, piping-hot entrees insulate bento boxes ($5.99) to keep other side dishes warm and cover Christmas presents hidden inside. A refreshing beverage ($1.89) whets out-of-tune whistles and complements the flavors of the buffet feast.
During the day or night, on a holiday or a plain old Tuesday, Anytime Fitness is always open. Once they register, members get a key to the gym’s secured entryway, which means they have 24-hour-a-day, 365-days-a-year access to any of the club’s nearly 1,800 locations all over the globe. Personal trainers staff each location, where they lead customized one-on-one training sessions or provide quick and simple tips for using the gym’s high-quality cardio and strength-training equipment. After a sweat session, members can head to the locker room for a shower or catch up on their stories on one of the treadmills equipped with a personal TV. Exercisers can also accentuate their hard-earned musculature with a tanning session or two in professional beds.
