Leading the charge in Los Vaqueros' two area restaurants, Chef Cisneros imparts his third-generation culinary expertise to crafting flavorful Tex-Mex dishes from a stash of local poultry, fruits, and fresh veggies. At the flagship Fort Worth location, set within a former warehouse, a flight of yellow steps leads through a leafy archway into a lively dining room filled with vintage cowbells, tin signs, and Air Jordan horseshoes. The Weatherford location sits within Crown Valley Golf Club, where patrons dine on enchiladas, tacos, and burritos as wild golf balls cheep from their perches on the windowsills.
At Alamo Drafthouse Cinema's nostalgically decorated locations, waiters hand-deliver cold drinks and casual fare to patrons reclining in cinema seating while independent, blockbuster, and classic movies parade across the screens. The projection palace sports a full schedule of mainstream cinematic offerings—such as The Adventures of Tintin, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, and The Sitter. The absence of pre-feature ads makes for consistently punctual entertainment, much like a series of karaoke songs sung by an alarm clock. Cinephiles can peruse a full calendar of special events, which invite them to quote along with cult favorites, text quips and thoughts directly onto the screen of comically bad films during HeckleVision screenings, or practice aim with complimentary cap guns at action flicks. The theater also hosts interactive sing-along sessions for musical classics such as Grease, where audience members are encouraged to wield plastic combs and candy smokes while busting out alma mater chants, teenage duets, and soulful choir songs about polio vaccines. Patrons can keep throats hydrated with a 32-ounce drink, quenching thirsts with bottled water or Coca-Cola products.
At Zorbas Greek Mediterranean Cuisine, eaters order from a menu inspired by the owner’s own background. Stuffed appetizers deliver gifts of flavor in edible packaging, with graspable treats such as the spanakopita, a pastry filled with spinach and cheese, or grape leaves, a collection of greens wrapped around herbed rice. Entrees ameliorate ampler appetites, with selections such as the mixed kebab, a blend of chicken tikka and beef chunks accompanied by mediterranean salad and pita, or the vegetarian delight, a platter of sautéed eggplant and zucchini in tomato sauce, accompanied by tabbouleh and pita bread. The mezza plate delivers an erudite study of classic Mediterranean recipes, with surveys in delicious subjects such as falafel, tabbouleh, kibbeh, hummus, and baba gannouj. Zorbas keeps its doors open seven days a week and maintains multitudinous parking spots in front of the storefront.

Felix Potin Paris can trace its history back to 1844, when founder Félix Potin opened his first chocolate shop at the age of 24 in Paris. His sweets empire steadily grew throughout the years while Potin’s chocolatiers perfected their craft in kind. More than a hundred years later, Felix Potin Paris still crafts rich single-origin chocolate truffles that incorporate extra-dark chocolate, pralines, and buttery salted caramel. The Black Collection integrates different creative flavors into its truffle repertoire, stashing salty toffee chips or candied orange peels inside each cocoa-dusted sphere. Staff members at Felix Potin Paris also craft four different flavors of tender fruit gels, coating them in dark chocolate or fine sugar.
