Dip a combination of chocolate-chip, oatmeal-raisin, and white-chocolate-macadamia cookies in tall glasses of home-brewed sweet tea made from rainforest-certified black tea and pure sugar, or opt for the unsweetened variety.
Alternately, stop by McAlister's with a spouse or a constantly torso-twisting aerobics instructor to taste menu selections such as a traditional taco salad with veggie or non-veggie chili ($6.99), a quarter-pound french dip au jus ($6.99) or a grilled-chicken-topped spud ($6.99) with melted mozzarella, zesty green onions, and diced tomatoes. Party-platter purchasers should call their preferred location in advance of the big games, Little League games, or games of Chutes and Ladders they plan to watch attentively for hours.
