Sprouting from culinary roots in New Orleans, Crazy Cajun slings a southern-style smorgasbord of seafood, po boys, and ribs in a casual eatery. Diners can weave together a gastronomic tapestry with the menu's Mix 'n Match entree ($7.95), interlacing half of a shrimp, oyster, or catfish po boy with seafood or chicken and sausage gumbo, steeped for longer than it takes to finish a cross-country rickshaw race. Meanwhile, torrents of garlic-butter sauce wash over the Garlic Trio's snow crab, blue crab, and shrimp peaks poking out from behind rolling hills of corn, potatoes, and sausage ($18.95). Andouille sausage embellishes a pillow of red beans and rice ($6.95) in a Cajun favorite. Diners with massive appetites, or crawfish looking for their soul mate, can take the Crazy Cajun Crawfish Challenge ($29.95), which defies patrons to pack away 6 pounds of the eponymous crustacean within 15 minutes for a free T-shirt, a free meal, and an earned sense of confidence.

With its bamboo walls and palm-tree-shaded yard, Supa D Tropical Bar & Grill’s exterior has all the markings of a modest subtropical hut. But come nightfall, throbbing bass makes the bamboo slats vibrate, shattering any notions of an idyllic island refuge. Behind those bamboo walls, reggae, dance-hall, and soca DJs take to the stage, and a spacious sunken dance floor sports vivid airbrushed murals and subwoofers the size of shopping carts.

By day, though, Supa D Tropical Bar & Grill showcases the culinary side of Jamaican culture. Meats simmer in thick curries, and jerk chicken jolts tongues out of their stamp-licking stupor. Additionally, dining companions can cleanse palates with classic Jamaican beverages such as Irish moss, sorrel, and peanut punch.

One of the largest locally owned gourmet coffee and tea shops in the U.S., Barnie's offers more than 50 different gourmet coffees with 15 delectable flavors. Barnie's typically brews four different fresh coffees each day, and a ballroom of smoothies and lattes waltzes alongside mochas, espressos, and cappuccinos. Sit and sip a freshly brewed cup ($1.59+) or begin hoarding bags of pre-ground or whole-bean specialties such as Santa's White Christmas ($9.49/12 oz.)—a combination of Barnie's blended coffee with hints of coconut, sweet caramel, and vanilla guaranteed to keep you alert during the season when homes are most vulnerable to invasion by diabolically generous bearded elves. Recently unfrozen British cavemen can warm up with signature teas such as organic raspberry truffle and white-ginger peach, while all others can hose down tongue gardens with summer specials such as the Barnie Palmer ($2.29–$2.59), a blend of strawberry iced tea and mango lemonade.
