The comedians at Sacramento Comedy Spot, named one of the best places to take a date by Sacramento News & Review readers in 2008, split sides with weekly lineups of improv, sketch-comedy, and standup routines. The club’s various comedy shows transform snacks into projectile objects as guests wet their whistles with beer, and munch on popcorn and candy. Those wanting to try their hands at the laugh-luring profession can participate in an open mic, or enroll in one of the Spot's improv, standup, or sketch classes.

Limelight’s lasagna, steaks, and salads compete for space in stomachs as patrons in an adjacent card room compete in Texas hold'em and blackjack. A wooden bar next to exposed-brick walls keeps glasses full and brains busy with questions about the presidential line of succession during Tuesday-night trivia. During weekend brunches, omelets and pancakes ornament the plates of diners still musing over last night’s dreams about a dolphin water-polo league.

There's nothing routine about teeth cleanings at Laguna Village Dental. Amir Shad, DDS and his dental staff use a customized mix of medicated gels, prescription mouth rinses, and vibrating Ultrasonic scalers, when necessary, to lift plaque and restore oral health. Performing these regular cleanings, as well as keeping patients informed about at-home care, is the foundation of the staff's preventative care. When cosmetic or restorative treatments are in order, however, Dr. Shad channels more than a decade's worth of experience in perfecting smiles with technologies that range from Lumineers veneers to Invisalign treatments.

Choosing a seat is the first step at 3 Fires Lounge. The jet-black bar stools give patrons the best views of the room's 52-inch, high-definition televisions. The high-top tables line a window that gazes directly out onto Capitol Park. Additionally, the space features oversized couches that invite guests to sink into their helium-filled cushions. All three of these options are available within the trendy, lounge, which was recently remodeled to have a more colorful atmosphere with more seating, beers on draught, and comfortable new patio furniture. CBS Sacramento praised the space's casual vibe and low-key ambiance, placing 3 Fires Lounge on its list of the Best Hotel Bars in Sacramento.

Although glasses of wine, pints of beer, and rounds of cocktails are all readily available for patrons hoping to relax with a drink in hand, 3 Fires Lounge also tempts diners with a menu of hearty international cooking. While the chefs incorporate recipes from across the globe, their main source of inspiration is the bounty of seasonal, locally sourced produce that is so readily available. Using these Californian ingredients, the team creates hummus with vegetables and baked pita chips, crab cake sandwiches served on sourdough bread with melted white cheddar, and grilled flatbreads topped with everything from caramelized onions, mushrooms, and goat cheese to pulled pork and honey-chipotle barbecue sauce.

Mermaids and mermen are a surprisingly common sight at Dive Bar. Fin-clad entertainers spend their evenings elegantly swimming through the 7,500-gallon aquarium that hangs over the bar’s stone countertops, charming guests as the bartenders mix an array of classic and contemporary cocktails. Exposed brickwork, black-leather armchairs, and a dangling chandelier don’t necessarily continue the nautical theme, but they do contribute to the overwhelmingly luxuriant ambiance.

Live musicians grace the bar’s stage on Wednesdays, whereas Thursdays feature a dueling-piano show that brings to mind Billy Joel and Elton John’s legendary joust to the death. In addition to hosting DJ performances, the lounge pumps out dance-worthy tunes until as late as 2 a.m., even allowing customers to connect their iPods to the sound system and either play their favorite song or the shortest chapter from their favorite audiobook.

The Buggy Whip shuttles diners back in history to an era when meat and potatoes ruled the roost at dinnertime. Open since 1958, the family-owned steak house brims with more vintage ambiance than the century-old wine corks that form the Statue of Liberty. Customers’ knives liberate savory juices from rib eyes as forks dive into dishes of sizzling scampi and herbed scallops. At lunch, diners can savor hearty broiled sirloins stuffed with sautéed mushrooms and peppers or lighter plates flanked with cottage cheese and tomatoes. In addition to serving steaks, seafood, and potables in the dining room seven days a week, the restaurant accommodates groups by building banquet spreads from fare such as prime rib, teriyaki chicken, and sweet, creamy cheesecake.
