After traveling from the end of the rainbow to the tip of the North Pole, Easter's original hippity-hoppity star is now claiming seasonal residence at the Tyson Corner Center, Arundel Mills Mall, Potomac Mills Mall, Lakeforest Mall and Marley Station. As both an adorable and educational animal, the bunny associated with Easter will be helping kids get into the spirit of egg-hunting by teaming up with professional photographers who know how to coax giggle-laden smiles out of any bundle of joy. Children can pose with the gregarious giant, embracing fluff-filled hugs, and then later enjoy their shared moments by flipping through their tangible, printed portraits and by fluttering their eyelids at their vibrant, digitally arrested stills.
When Ronn Teitelbaum opened the first Johnny Rockets restaurant on June 6, 1986?on Melrose Avenue in Los Angeles?his goal was to create a restaurant where people could escape the stress of everyday life and experience a taste of American dining. The name itself is a nod to this ideal?it combines the star of a heroic American fable, Johnny Appleseed, and the classic, Oldsmobile?s Rocket 88 automobile the global chain now makes itself at home in America's cultural landmarks, including Yankee Stadium and the Flamingo Hotel.
During meals at one of the seven Las Vegas locations, you?ll see signs of simpler times. Cooks and servers hand-dip shakes and cook up a selection of classic American comfort foods, including hamburgers, sandwiches, and American fries served with ketchup smiley faces. Riding sidecar to each meal is a selection of starters that include sweet potato fries, and treats such as hand-made ice cream shakes.
With more than 700 locations, Jamba Juice proves to the masses that nutrition can be speedy and delicious. Since the beginning, the company’s product philosophy has revolved around choosing whole fruits and other natural ingredients over artificial flavorings, sweeteners, and preservatives. The menu is completely free of high-fructose corn syrup and trans fats, and it offers additional accommodations for vegan and gluten-free diets.
This naturalistic approach is fully realized in Jamba Juice's selection of smoothies. Made with 100% fruit juice, sherbet, and frozen yogurt, the frosty delights range from all-fruit smoothies such as peach perfection and strawberry whirl to more indulgent creamy treats, including peanut butter moo'd, an enticing blend of peanut butter, bananas, nonfat vanilla frozen yogurt, and milk chocolate.
For those with heartier appetites, steel-cut oats steep in soymilk before being enhanced with toppings such as apples, cinnamon, and brown-sugar crumble. The lunch hour presents protein-packed mini wraps, toasted bistro sandwiches and California Flatbreads that pack only about 320–420 calories each.
For its more than 20 types of golden-brown pancakes and plentiful selection of omelets, waffles, and other hearty American breakfast dishes, The Original Pancake House has gleaned accolades ranging from a Zagat rating and a feature on The Food Channel to being named one of the nation's top 200 franchises in 2009 by Franchise Times. It's no wonder why. Since 1953, every one of the family business’s morning specialties have been prepared from scratch daily with a commitment to real ingredients such as pure whipping cream, hard-wheat unbleached flour, and butter made from fresh sweet cream. Powdered sugar lines the soufflé-styled rims of oven-baked german pancakes, which The Food Channel lauds for their "ever so-slightly crispy" edges and calls "just the right balance between a crepe and a pancake." Apple pancakes—with granny-smith apples in the batter and sinkiang cinnamon glaze on top—are another favorite, and those tart apples also share the menu with fresh blueberries and toasted Georgia pecans for a turn to simmer in belgian-waffle squares like actual grannies in syrup-filled jacuzzis. Unique ingredients add distinction to house specialties such as oven-baked mushroom-sherry-sauce-topped omelets and gourmet fruit-filled crepes garnished with sweet cherry-wine sauce. To accentuate the flavors of each meal, The Original Pancake House brews its own signature coffee blend.
If you couldn’t tell, the name Blueberry Hill Family Restaurant is a nod to a Fats Domino rock n’ roll hit of the 1950s, though the family-owned and operated Las Vegas eatery is a bit of a throwback itself. Located on the southwest corner of Charleston and Decatur in a strip mall largely dominated by a dollar store, Blueberry Hill has been a cheap, accessible dining mainstay for locals since 1987, with several locations in the Vegas Valley. The Decatur outpost is open 24 hours a day, serving up wide-ranging comfort food on a menu that spans breakfast, lunch and hearty dinner items all day long. No matter what you end up ordering, be sure to bring an appetite, as the entrées tend to be as tall and thick as the menu. Or grab a cup of black coffee and relax at your diner-style booth while all that food settles.
