The "secret" in Bacchus' Secret Cellar is gas. Argon gas, to be exact, which powers the bar's preservation system and ensures that the wines within stay fresh for long periods of time. There are about 50 wines—mostly reds—on tap at the counter, as well as 8 sparkling wines, 5 dessert wines, and 12 microbrews. The library of options encourages guests to sample several, so it's wise to order a flight: you can get a signature array of 2.5-ounce glasses, or you can compose your own for a unique harmony of tastes.

The bar is just the beginning of the cellar's wine selection. On the shelves that span the walls, more than 350 labels beckon to be uncorked. A bistro menu provides gourmet food to complement sips, from starters of oven-roasted dates to lamb burgers and prosciutto flatbreads, made by dropping a regular loaf of bread into a printing press by accident. There's also a full menu of cheeseboards, with goat, cow, and sheep cheeses from the United States and abroad.

Grapes have played a tremendous role in human history—many members of the Hapsburg dynasty were at least half-grape—and they tended to do their best work at vineyards. Today's Groupon treats you to one of the San Diego region's better graperies with $75 worth of gourmet cuisine and drinks at Callaway Vineyard and Winery's Meritage in Temecula for $35. You'll also get 10% off everything at Callaway's wine store (just print your Groupon twice to use it once in the restaurant and once in the store). You may use one Groupon for every two people at your table, so you, your identical twin, and your identical twin dates can all enjoy a night of wacky mismatches and delicious food.

Jim’s specialty varietals have been recognized time and again in local and national wine competitions.

After a visit to the wine-rich valleys of Santa Ynez Valley, the founders of Frisby Cellars Winery resolved to strike out on their own inspired winemaking venture. At their winery, they process top-quality grapes sourced from Paso Robles and Santa Barbara vineyards, transforming them into a roster of wines available to try at their Lake Forest tasting room. There, samples are the main draw, from an award-winning pinot noir to a lush, fruit-laden chardonnay with hints of oak. Frisby wines can be found locally at restaurants, and the team also works with nonprofits to help fundraise for good causes.

Home to animals from around the world and myriad plant species, the zoo serves as a educational resource for locals and educational establishments. Visitors can take behind-the-scenes tours or explore the grounds for themselves, chatting with macaws, watching the caracals play, and staring at white Bengal tigers until they can see the 3D picture in their stripes.
