In 1988, Auntie Anne's founders Anne and Jonas Beiler purchased a Pennsylvania farmers'-market stand, where they experimented with dough until they created a pretzel that seemed to strike the perfect chord with their customers. Today, at their more than 1,350 locations worldwide, the pretzel makers still hand roll the original recipe but have added to the menu with inventive options such as the eight signature dipping sauces. The team constantly explores new uses for the pretzel dough, such as wrapping it around hot dogs and slicing it into bite-size nuggets. To transform the snack into a meal, they accompany it with specialty drinks, including frozen-lemonade desserts.
When not twisting dough, Auntie Anne's team partners with the national charitable organization Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation, which raises funds to fight childhood cancer. Auntie Anne's also reaches out to the community through fundraising opportunities.
No matter the time of day, a traditional Irish breakfast awakens the senses to the finer things in life—namely black and white pudding, Irish bacon, fried eggs, baked beans, and a hearty serving of bangers. Few taverns outside the Emerald Isle can rival Five Roses Pub when it comes to this distinctive breakfast, but the pub has a few other tricks up its coat sleeves. Throughout the day, cooks craft Irish delicacies such as maple-glazed salmon with boxty potato cakes, Guinness sausage, and potpies served with homemade soda bread. A fireplace warms the spacious dining room, which is lined with antique lanterns and patrons in good cheer thanks to an extensive selection of wines and beers. Crowds tend to grow boisterous when live musicians take the stage or on karaoke nights, when friends join together to stumble through lyrics translated into Gaelic on the overhead screen.
Imagined and founded by country singer-songwriter Toby Keith, Toby Keith’s I Love This Bar & Grill combines Southern-style eats with mason jars full of beer, plus daisy-duke-clad waitresses pouring top-shelf whiskeys. This all takes place beneath complex light and sound systems for the restaurant's full-on concert stage. The staff keeps the calendar stocked with events, hosting sports nights, poker tournaments, karaoke, and live bands such as Due West and Colt Ford. Performers croon, their guitars twang, and the lights dim to shades of purple, blue, and red—colors scientifically proven to make mediocre dancers look like Russian ballet stars.
When both the plasma-screen TVs and stage lie dormant, the entertainment continues aboard the bar's mechanical bull, appropriately dubbed “Toby.” Even ordering a drink comes with the thrill of sidling up to the 85-foot, guitar-shaped bar, originally intended to be strummed by a giant robot Elvis.
