Vegetarian House’s name is slightly misleading—but only slightly. The menu is indeed vegetarian, but it’s also 100% vegan and organic. That means vegetable broth pho that swaps out tripe for tofu and soy protein. Eclectic dishes from Asia and the Middle East round out the menu, and many feature noodles made from scratch.

At this all-ages venue, eight-balls sink into upwards of 165 pockets inside South First Billiards, which houses nearly 30 9-foot pool tables. But they only take up a fraction of South First's 14,000-square-feet: the rest plays host to ping-pong and beer-pong tables, as well as foosball and air hockey. Despite the potpourri of games, South First isn't just a gaming venue. Rotating pieces by local artists adorn the walls, while an eclectic lineup of musicians, from rockers to rappers, grace the stage on live music nights. South First's bartenders complement any activity?whether playing, looking, or listening?with 12 microbrews on tap, as well as fruity and chocolaty handcrafted cocktails.

A former vaudeville performance space and movie palace built in 1928, the California Theatre of the Performing Arts hearkens back to a bygone era with its majestic Wurlitzer organ, which is played during silent-film programs, and a time portal linked to the childhood home of Alexander Pantages. The theater?s deep-red stage curtains and ornate, vaulted ceilings also steep the senses in a vintage ambiance. Thanks to this comforting nostalgia, as well as the heartfelt scenes that unfold onstage, the space seems much cozier than a 1,718-seat auditorium has any right to.

Its name may contain the word "museum," but The Tech Museum of Innovation prefers not to wallow in the past. Since its earliest days in 1978, it has exhibited the timeless principles of science while also celebrating the latest in technological achievement. In doing so, the institution inspires visitors to apply that same spirit of creative problem-solving to all aspects of life.

  • Size: the mango-and-azure domed building fills 132,000 square feet with hundreds of interactive exhibits and six labs

  • Permanent Mainstay: The Tech Awards Gallery, a showcase of past inventions and inventors from the museum's annual Tech Awards

A child holds cotton candy in one hand and a balloon in the other, wandering around a fair. The crowd parts, and the child sees a photo booth, so they run toward it?eager to pose for a keepsake of the day. This is the feeling the creators of Vizid Booth aim to recreate with their photo-booth services. As kids, grown-ups, or coworkers mingle at any type of event, they can pop in to booths that marry a popular pastime with modern touches. A preview screen lets subjects perfect their smiles and be sure they?re not among vampires, and loads of props encourage guests to create sillier scenes. Three service packages range from basic booth setup and takedown with unlimited printouts to platinum service with video messages and DVD slideshows of the event?s photos.
