In naming her restaurant after the Spanish word for "bridge," Viola, the owner of La Puente Ogden, pays homage to both the town where she grew up in New Mexico and to the start of her new life. After all, she decided to open this spot for Mexican food after the passing of her spouse in 1989. Today, it's a local favorite for authentic dishes, such as smothered burritos, tacos, and enchiladas.

At each of Fat Cats' five locations, strikes and spares light up the screens of automatic scoring systems. Bowling balls roll and skip down lanes in normal conditions, against retractable bumpers, or under the fluorescent glow of Thunder Alley, when the facility transforms into a music-filled fusion of a bowling alley and dance club. Each lane's crashing pins echo the softer clacking of putters at the glow-in-the-dark miniature golf course and the ringing lightshow of the arcade. Elsewhere, the scents of pizza and deep-fried bowling balls waft through the fun haven. Each Fat Cats location partners with different restaurants, including The Pizza Factory at its Salt Lake facility and Champzz Bar at the Westminster location.
