If you ask a child to draw the meaning of Christmas, there’s a good chance it would look something like Rocket Fizz. A step into Rocket Fizz is a step back in time—into a wonderland of old-fashioned candies and sodas that appear to be straight out of a kid’s imagination or a sugar factory’s family tree. The progeny of cofounders Rob Powells and Ryan Morgan, the shops—which have been mentioned on The Price is Right and endorsed by celebrities such as Snooki from Jersey Shore—burst with thousands of soda pops and candies. Rob and Ryan created their own brand of pure-cane-sugar Rocket Fizz sodas, which tickle tongues in flavors such as banana nut, cherry cola, and apple jalapeño. Lester’s Fixins and Melba’s Fixins sodas—named for Ryan’s grandparents—offer sweet tastes of apple-pie soda or key-lime soda and adventurous flavors such as bacon soda and sweet-corn soda. Candy bars include classics such as Rocky Road, Bit-O-Honey, and Sky Bars, and bite-size candies include favorites such as Nerds, Milk Duds, and peanut-butter cookie-dough bites. Each shop also stocks nostalgic items, such as movie and music posters, gag gifts, and popular Jones sodas.
Chicago Brewing Company's head brewer David Pascual crafts frosty brews that pair perfectly with hearty burgers and garnered gold and silver medals at the 2010 World Beer cup. While twosomes relax, sudsy servings of Ramblin' Reck amber ale swirl taste buds in a ruby-colored blend of five domestic and imported barley types. Old Town Brown, a German-style brown ale, enchants sensory muscles with dark malt tones and a mild chocolate aroma that, along with sauerkraut, is the official scent of Berlin. In between hoppy gulps, dinner duos can squelch stomach rumblings with any two burgers such as the classic Brewhouse burger—a juicy Black Angus patty topped with lettuce, tomato, and onion. The open-faced Chicago chili cheeseburger ($11) stops hunger in its tracks with regular fixin's and a heap of house-made chili. To meet dietary requirements, all burgers arrive alongside a serving of french fries.

New York transplant Gerry and his son Shaun, owners of East Side Pizza at Boca Park, understand just how high their home state sets the bar for great family pizzerias. So several times a week, they send out orders for shipments of fresh pizza dough from their supplier back on the East Coast. It's just one of the little things that ends up having a big impact on the taste and texture of their hand-tossed, New York–style, thin-crust pizzas. The fresh dough is covered with housemade marinara sauce and topped with both traditional and surprising ingredients, creating specialty pies such as the barbecue chicken, chicken marsala, and eggplant rollatini, each sold whole or by the slice.
Their full menu features calzones, pastas and hot sandwiches, including their signature meatball sub topped with mozzarella. Choose to dine in, and you'll find yourself in a comfortable dining room surrounded by flat-screen TVs and sports memorabilia.
