At Little Mexico Cafe, corn and flour tortillas enfold steak, chicken, and vegetables to create traditional Mexican fajitas, enchiladas, and chimichangas. Homemade sauces slather cheese-laden creations spiced up with jalapeños and racy limericks, and chefs also charter a course toward sautéed, grilled, or stuffed jumbo shrimp. The two-story restaurant showcases bright Aztec-themed murals by artist Roli Mancera, and banners of papel picado flutter overhead in the sunny, yellow upstairs dining room. After a devastating fire in 2008 that burned the original Little Mexico Cafe to the ground, resilient restaurateurs Enrique and Consuelo Ayala rebuilt the eatery for a 2010 reopening, where the community revelry was covered by The Grand Rapids Press.

Louie's Bar & Rocket Lounge BBQ are two adjacent hangouts with complementary moods and menus. Nightly drink specials and live music get the party going at Louie's, where bar goers can step out on the dance floor or cheer on their favorite sports team by playing catch with the HD televisions. Those with increasingly loud stomachs can commission a cornbread pulled-pork slider or other snack from Rocket Lounge, where chefs specialize in a one-of-a-kind genre of fusion barbecue. Unable to decide on a single style, Rocket cooks marry the spicy sweetness of Texan fare to the smokiness of Kansas City kitchens, yielding tender brisket, rib tips, and chopped beef. Savored by the bar at Louie's or in the checkered-tile interior of Rocket, each bite of barbecue satisfies while pairing well with frothy, cold brews.

Since his teenage years, Anton Steinhart's altruistic spirit has always pushed him to find new ways of giving back. After a stint in Bolivia teaching women how to operate sewing machines and sell their wares in the United States, he returned stateside seeking his next charitable venture. Anton drew upon previous experience in the wine industry and founded Wines for Humanity in 2007, which has raised more than $2 million for families on the brink of homelessness and other charities. As attendees sample seven wines culled from award-winning international vineyards, expert advisors discuss how to taste each pour, suggest food and wine pairings, and gently kiss their favorite corks.
