Located among the shops and restaurants of Boca Park in Summerlin, Embers sates appetites with a modern take on American cuisine. The menu features main courses and appetizers that include slow roasted tri-tip steak, grilled miso salmon, bacon-wrapped dates, and wild mushroom risotto. On weekends, blueberry ricotta pancakes, filet benedicts with hollandaise, and smoked bacon and ham croissants are served for brunch. Bottles of wine, craft beer, and Embers' signature vintage cocktails complement the food, which is served in an open, contemporary dining area with a cream-and-brown color scheme, wooden accents, and tall ceilings that pull eyes upward and give diners a break from staring lovingly at their plates.
Popcorn Girl, a gourmet popcorn shop in Las Vegas’ Summerlin suburb, offers more than 50 flavors of the savory popped snack to choose from, including Chocolate, Nacho Cheese, Dill Pickle, Butterfinger and Crazy Cornfetti, a mix of colorful, fruity flavors. The simple shop absolutely runs on popcorn, with treats and popcorn-related goodies lining most of the walls of this bright yellow space. There are decorative theme boxes available to be filled up with the popcorn selection of your choice, or large clear bags that can be stuffed for a party later on. Perhaps most uniquely of all, Popcorn Girl makes every batch of their namesake treat right in the store. Besides popcorn, buckets of taffy are also available, as well as soda and a variety of otherwise hard-to-source candies.

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.
