The native Frenchman became the seventh generation of his family to follow this path, and more than 40 years later it's proven to be a wise decision. His Buena Vista brand has found success in several iterations, including the Buena Vista Bistro and Buena Vista Chocolate & Wine, a cozy shop where patrons can pick up gourmet chocolates, rare wines, and anything else that's not too heavy to lift. Perhaps the shop's most popular sweets, though, are the 1?9 assortment, a mix of milk and dark chocolates filled with everything from hazelnuts to lime ganache. Other chocolate creations, meanwhile, infuse bold flavors such as violet and curry.

Here, attendees don't need plane tickets or jetpacks to cross borders—they simply stroll from one station to the next, sipping more than 100 vodkas, tequilas, sakes, beers, whiskeys, and other alcohols along the way. At each stop, staffers stamp the attendees' provided passports, which they can use to claim a gift bag at the end of the night or to take a trip to Canada. But the evening's drinking serves a higher purpose than just getting schnookered, as proceeds from the event will be poured back into Ronald McDonald House Charities.
