The knowledgeable, friendly staff at the The Fogarty Winery Tasting Room will help amateur ambrosialists and experienced grape sniffers select five vintage fermentations to sample from the wine list. The 2006 Langley Hill Vineyard SCM Estate Chardonnay stays true to its mountainous roots, packing a steely mineral punch, as hints of fruit usher in a soothing, refreshing finish. Only 94 cases of this nectar were produced and bottles are available for $48. Pamper your scarlet palate with a 2005 Lexington Santa Cruz Mountains Meritage. Poor weather patterns and surprise alien crop circles aside, 2005 produced a perfectly ripened yield. This cabernet-merlot blend is apt to drop flavor bombs of black fruit, spice and toasty oak, with lingering chords of cassis, plum, and loam. Only 447 cases were captured in the wild and you can walk your own bottle home for $45.

In the bright spaces of Jamba Juice, mixers sprinkle mountains of all-natural, low-fat frozen yogurt with choices from seven toppings, such as almond and coconut.

Since 1997, Caffe Riace's chefs have infused their Italian menu with a Sicilian flair, dishing up pastas, veal dishes, and seafood within the restaurant's vibrant spaces. They use some organic ingredients, cure their beef in-house, and import real buffalo mozzarella for their mozzarella di bufala salad. The staff serves pasta dishes—including the prawn- and lobster-loaded capellini aragosta with tarragon and mushroom—atop glass tables set in front of scenic murals and rustic artwork.
Towering statues survey the outdoor patio, which spreads beneath umbrellas across a tiled plaza. Lion statues and flower beds give the outdoor space the aura of a florist who tames lions or a lion tamer whose boyfriend really screwed up. The patio also benefits from a sense of whimsy—rather than spilling water from an urn, the centerpiece fountain's patina-covered figure hoists a washing machine atop her head. Inside, the roster of elegant private dining rooms includes the chandelier-crowned Riace room, where bright artwork and flowers pop against red and cream walls, as well as a wine room with wine racks and wooden wine barrels reclining in the room's nooks.
At Drybar, a pair of scissors or hair-coloring foil is nowhere to be found. That’s because the business’s founder, Alli Webb, opened the shop strictly for blowouts after her in-home business skyrocketed. Featured extensively in the media, each of the more than 25 white-hued, airy shops revolves around a center bar where customers sit for around 45 minutes as stylists blow-dry, straighten, and curl their hair. From a menu booklet, clients select a cocktail-themed hairstyle, such as The Mai Tai, which imparts beachy waves, and The Manhattan, which streamlines locks with a sleek finish that mimics the straight lines of downtown New York and can be outfitted with a tiny doorman who hails cabs for you. The staff at Drybar also crafts updos, travels on location for an additional fee, offers high-end products and tools available for purchase, and tallies bar tabs so that customers can pay for multiple blowouts at once.
