Organic ingredients, kosher certification, and owner Desiree Adl-Revivo’s cupcake passion combine to create each hourly batch of Famous Cupcakes' cupcakes. More than 15 flavors, from classic to seasonal to specialty (vary daily), grace the menu. The indecisive can experiment with a sampler dozen, which includes red velvet, Va-va-va-nilla, Chocolicious, and 24-karat. Place an order online at least 45 minutes in advance. The cupcakes stay fresh for four days, can be frozen for 30 days, and keep for decades if buried underground in a styrofoam container.
Walking into Mickey Fine Pharmacy & Grill, one may get the sensation of having stepped into a snapshot of the past. “The Beverly Hills business lays claim to being the only remaining pharmacy in the region with a counter and soda fountain, where patrons can enjoy old-time favorites such as egg-cream sodas and hand-spun malted shakes,” says a reporter for the Los Angeles Business Journal. Perched at the original pharmacy counter, which has been serving food since 1962, customers hoist hunger-defeating burgers or freshly grilled sandwiches. Servers deliver hand-spun milk shakes and malts crafted with artisan ice cream and crowned with whipped cream like a court summons from King Candy. The aisles are still stocked with beauty and healthcare products, which customers peruse, distracted by the aromas of espresso, breakfast burritos, and housemade meatloaf.
Dozens of anxious shoppers line up on the sidewalk, peering through a glossy store window for any sign of activity. After what seems like hours, a door swings open and visitors flood the shop to glimpse the object of their anticipation: newly released Dave White Air Jordan basketball shoes.

Alongside the trove of classic and designer kicks, sporty apparel and accessories by Stussy, Silvano, and Mitchell & Ness cloak upper halves, complementing newfound footwear and keeping hair from attempting to lace itself for attention. In addition to its bustling limited-edition releases, Millennium Shoes entertains visitors with a range of special events, including video-game tournaments and guest appearances by NBA players.

Regardless of which of the hundreds of Target Portrait Studio locations you meander into, you can always count on a similar experience. Tucked into Target retail locations throughout the nation, each studio boasts a staff of professional photographers, premium lighting equipment, and advanced digital cameras. The seasoned crew takes pains to customize photo sessions to suit each customer's vision, setting up desired backgrounds and props before guiding families and high-school seniors through a mélange of poses. Afterward, customers will work with a professional to personalize their portraits with different special effects and styles, such as black and white or sepia tone. They then pick up their physical portraits at the studio in 7–10 days. If they don't feel like holding their breath that long to see the final products, they can access the images in an online gallery within 24 hours of the session, at which point they can order extra prints for gifts, collages, and greeting cards.
