Sprawling through a series of rooms, 3 Amigos Mexican Bar & Grill is anything but small. Yet, the interior and its ambiance is almost cozy. Stone accents pop up throughout the eatery, complimenting walls in the bright hues of hot peppers, turmeric, and payment invoices from clowns. Dressed colorfully, waitresses and waiters bob and weave through the main dining room's expanse of tables and booths to deliver fresh Mexican entrees, such as shrimp fajitas, quesadillas layered with cheese and shredded chicken, and enchiladas verde. Meanwhile, of-age patrons perch at the bar and sip draft beer and margaritas from jumbo glasses.
Every 36 hours, the dairy mavens at Rita’s Italian Ice scrap their inventory of frozen custard and italian ice and begin churning batches of frozen treats anew. Because freshness is paramount at Rita’s, customers may find only a few of the menu’s full cast of 40 flavors each day. But servers can merge those flavors into countless combinations: the misto, for instance, blends italian ice and custard in equal proportions, and the gelati layers strata of italian ice and frozen custard. Additionally, servers scoop up fat-free Slenderita and sugar-free italian ice for desserts that prove as wholesome and frozen as an ice sculpture of Mr. Rogers.
After searching for an easy and affordable way to sample craft brews from across the country, Moondog Growlers’ proprietors began selling specialty suds in bottles that customers can bring back and refill with a new selection each time. The growlers hold between two and four pints depending on their size, bestowing beers with a shelf life of 7–10 days inside a fridge, 36 hours outside of a fridge, and 0.4 seconds inside of a thermonuclear jet engine. A rotating selection of 30 craft brews—which may include selections from famous hop houses such as SweetWater, Bell's Brewery, and New Belgium—changes based upon seasonal availability.
