Cantina Lounge accommodates a sensory feast of traditional Mexican cuisine, televised sports, and DJ entertainment under one lively roof. Slide into a secluded booth with friends and compare designer swim goggles under the sleek backdrop of dark etched wood, moody candles, and distressed steel. Tongue-tingling margaritas pair finely with intrepid fusion tastes, such as the mini Shanghai tacos—four corn tortillas steaming with Asian-infused carne asada, mexican and sesame slaws, lime, and queso fresco ($7.99). Furnish empty tables with the torta sandwiches, which tower with select meats, garnishes, guacamole, and sides of beer-battered fries ($12.99), or complement star-spangled bibs with patriotic sauce dollops from the baby-back ribs ($11.99 or $18.99 each).

At the Brea Improv, comics lure laughs from deep within bellies as they follow in the footsteps of standup legends such as Ellen DeGeneres, Chris Rock, Jerry Seinfeld, and Dave Chappelle, all of whom have performed at the Improv’s chain of comedy clubs. The club's calendar schedules comedians as often as seven nights a week, alternating between big-name headliners and up-and-coming funsters who tickle funny bones with fresh material, abundant energy, and feathered reflex hammers. Comedy fans can also savor Brea Improv's recurring resident shows, such as Richard Villa's Refried Tuesdays, or Saturday night’s Slanted Comedy, one of the longest-running Asian-comedy shows in the family of Improv clubs. Audience members munch on savory appetizers, such as spinach-and-artichoke dip or fried calamari, while sipping cocktails to avoid eye contact with the giant rubber chicken sitting at the next table.

Hershey Theatre

The Hershey Theatre, conceived in 1933 by noted philanthropist and chocolatier Milton S. Hershey, stands as an opulent tribute to the performing arts. Taking architectural cues from Saint Mark’s Basilica in Venice, the foyer’s towering arches gleam with golden paint and crystal chandeliers. The blue-and-gold mosaic that leads to the main seating area is the masterwork of two German artists who spent two years on its construction. Once inside the theater, audiences might think they’ve stepped onto the streets of Venice thanks to the atmospheric ceiling, stonework facades, and gondoliers paddling them to their seats. ####Bethel Woods Center for the Arts Music has permeated the 800 manicured acres where the Bethel Woods Center for the Arts has stood since 1969, when farmer Max Yasgur agreed to let love, peace, and harmony grow wild at the very first Woodstock festival. These days, the renowned outdoor venue and cultural center continues to attract the biggest acts in music to its pavilion stage. The open-air design ensures ample ventilation on the natural sloping lawn, and a roof protects up to 15,000 fans from inclement weather and the prying eyes of Cessna pilots.

Showtime Championship Boxing raises waves of adrenaline-soaked applause with a pair of championship bouts starring fleet-footed bantamweights. In the main event, a rematch of this summer’s controversial title fight in Las Vegas, audiences roar at the thuds of lightning-fast jabs as unbeaten Abner Mares defends his IBF and WBC silver-bantamweight championship titles against ex-champ Joseph "King Kong" Agbeko. Palpable animosity stirs between the two camps as they square off for the second time. In their first meeting, hearty portions of upper cuts and roundhouses brutalized the sluggers until the 11th round, when the referee called a knockout following a low blow about the color coordination of Agbeko’s trunk-and-robe ensemble.

Calling on the alchemic knowledge of ancient mystics, Merlin's Magic & Comedy Dinner Theatre blends gut-busting comedy, jaw-dropping barbecue fare, and mind-boggling magic tricks on the Rib Trader stage. Clothed in medieval garb, Merlin unleashes a flurry of illusions, levitating water glasses and assistants and confounding minds with sleight of hand and recitations of tax manuals. While audience members attempt to make sense of their newly stretched reality, a cadre of costumed servers piles tables high with ribs and chicken—or chicken strips and french fries for wee ones—and oversees edible disappearing acts.
