With more than 20 years of experience in the inflatable entertainment industry, Merry Makers provides hours of jumpable delight to energetic juveniles and the parents who want to tire them out before beer-thirty. Proportioned for standard toy-humans ages 12 and younger, and weighing less than 150 pounds, the Jumparoo Bounce House (a value of $179 for up to seven-hour rental) requires a 20'x20'x13'–20' space in which to nestle, and one electrical outlet within 70 feet to power the inflation station. These bright, colorful bastions of bounceability are available in more than 50 themes, such as castle, princess castle, and the castle formerly known as Prince castle. Treat your tot to a big top bouncer for a lively, circus-themed bash, or rent a pneumatic starship on July 20 to celebrate the 41-year anniversary of the Apollo moon landing or the 90-year pre-versary of humanity's first contact with Vulcans. Most bounce houses come with a roof to shield gravity challengers from sun and rain, allowing free-floating friends to jump their way to bedtime come rain, shine, or plague of fun-devouring locust.

Enjoy a menu stacked with comforting American favorites in Varsity Grill's spacious and modern setting. Tickle taste buds with a sampling of the Varsity nachos ($9.99)—a beautiful mess of crunchy tortilla chips enraptured in a melty mass of pepper-jack and cheddar cheeses, fresh tomatoes, sour cream, guacamole, and green onions and topped off with your choice of chicken or beef—before marching onward to the Varsity BLTA ($9.99), an upgraded BLT featuring Varsity's specialty applewood-smoked bacon, lettuce, tomato, and avocado between the buttery cumulus clouds of a freshly baked croissant. The Desert Heat burger ($9.99) places a flame-broiled half-pound hunk of meat in a coating of barbecue sauce, bacon, jalapenos, and pepper-jack cheese and, like a desert mirage, will disappear quickly between your ravenous chompers. Omnivores may want to try the Buffalo chicken salad ($10.99) covered in blue cheese crumbles, tortilla chips, and blue cheese dressing, and herbivores can find solace in the veggie sandwich ($8.99), which plays the creamy textures of avocado, cucumber, sprouts, hummus, swiss cheese, and cream cheese against sharp notes of red onion, lettuce, and tomato.

With an extensive menu of island-inspired eats, the eatery blissfully deserts feasters on an island of inspired cuisine. Start with an order of Spam musubi and enjoy the canned delicacy swaddled in a nori wrap with egg and rice ($4.95) or go for an order of Shanghai-style lumpia, a Pac Island family recipe of pork, shrimp, and vegetables in an eggroll-esque package ($5.50). Dinner at the eatery offers an abundant bounty of nourishment, with everything from noodles, rice, and burgers to their 13 barbecue combination platters. The loli chicken and Kalua pork, whose delectable pairing of barbecue chicken and slow-smoked pulled pork sautéed with cabbage ($10.49) was crowned best entree in the 2007 Taste of Tacoma festival, while the teriyaki-marinated kalbi short ribs ($10.95) was top entree in 2006. Most platters are served with two scoops of rice and either macaroni salad or island slaw. Salute sweet teeth with a tropical-fruit smoothie ($4.50), slice of pineapple upside-down cake ($3.75), or slice of molten-chocolate "luv-a-lava" cake ($5.95).
