The way the interior of Our Families Country Café is decorated gives off a keenly familiar feeling—like home, if home had the cozy welcome-home ambience of a TV-family dining room. A florist shop’s worth of plants, flowers, and knickknacks peppers the wooden walls, tables, and beams, and a decorative sign invites diners openly to “Seat Yourself.” Once you take in the restaurant’s good humor, a home-style feast of American favorites awaits touchdown between your fork and knife. Throughout the day, the kitchen staff flips hot cakes, scrambles omelets, grills burgers, and pours creamy gravy on crispy country fried steaks, all made in the name of down-home country cooking. Heartier eats include USDA Choice rib-eye steaks that start at 6 ounces like grandma used to make, or go up to 30 ounces, like Mr. T’s grandma used to make.
Grape leaves, chickpeas, and pine nuts flavor Garden Cafe’s classic dishes, honoring the rich array of ingredients yielded by the fertile soil and salty waters of the Mediterranean. The eatery’s marinated fava beans and hummus pave the way for main acts, such as sizzling beef and chicken kebabs or chicken shawarma. The cooks also combine fresh ingredients for a handful of sandwiches, loading bread with falafels, beef gyros, and even philly steaks, which justify their presence by telling everyone they studied abroad in Greece.
With more than 25 years of experience as a chef in Las Vegas and Louisiana, Hott Cakez owner and sweets queen Lacia McKee fuses Southern comfort with Las Vegas glamour to craft seductive gourmet sweets. Though this artistically inclined confectionary specializes in crafting unique and personalized wedding cakes with a flair for drama, today’s deal lets Groupon holders nab a taste of affordable luxury by sinking their teeth into a dozen strawberries that have been dipped in delicious molten cocoa, rendering them virtually indistinguishable to the vegetables they once were. Though equally Valentine-appropriate as flowers or teddy bears, these chocolate-dipped morsels hold the advantage of being infinitely more edible and are only slightly less fun to snuggle with, making them a perfect gift for a sweet loved one this February 14, or a perfect “surprise” for an angry loved one this February 15.
The exercise experts at Body Fit Las Vegas guide guests toward healthy hearts, toned muscles, and increased self-confidence at 64 weekly boot-camp sessions. A seasoned coach such as owner, trainer, and U.S. Army veteran Marcus Niemo equips students with moves that build stamina, core strength, and dioramas of the Battle of Bunker Hill. Each class teams cardio with isometric exercises to work all of the major muscle groups, providing a balanced workout that helps prevent injuries at the gym and comic wipeouts when skipping through fields of banana peels. The teacher can also help campers monitor their tickers and adjust the workout’s intensity to torch a maximum number of calories by hitting their target heart rate and uprooting fields of snapping Venus fly traps.
Gimme Some Sugar bakes and shapes couture pastries from scratch, which sparkle with edgy designs and finite detailing. The marquee of flavors flickers with star confections such as sexy red velvet, bouncy chocolate, and luscious lemon, with each taste able to act as the leading role in a single-tier cake, cakelet, or wedding blooper-reel of your choosing (starting at $50).
