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.

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.

Comedians Bob Perkell and Jeff Capri met through an act of deceit. When Perkell was gearing up for one of his first productions on the other side of the curtain, Capri called him to get a booking for one of the comedians he said he managed: Jeff Capri. But the charade didn't last long: the show was a success, Capri revealed his real identity, and, eventually, the two channeled their teamwork into a comedy club of their own. During Surf City’s shows, guests can order from a list of sweet, wine-centric cocktails and two dozen beers, including taps of Fat Tire and Shock Top.
