  • Rossi's Pizza and Family Sports Restaurant
    Rossi's Pizza and Family Sports Bar’s culinary team depends on the fruits of California. Chefs incorporate local cheese, olives, and bread into their dishes, and stock the bar with more than 15 wines, all of which are bottled in state. The cooks bolster regional ingredients with handmade dough, a special three-cheese blend grated in-house, and from-scratch marinara sauce, ranch dressing, and garlic butter. Beyond that, chefs craft award-winning homemade lasagna from a family recipe, pile BBQ roast beef and oven-roasted chicken onto Italian rolls, and crown specialty pizzas with toppings such as cashews and sliced avocado. They also serve bar classics such as chicken fingers and hamburgers. Along with Californian wine, 25 draft beers served in frosted mugs can help wash down meals, which unfold in a spacious dining area that surrounds guests with exposed brick, flat-screen TVs, and sports memorabilia. In the private team room, groups can enjoy a slice while reviewing strategies on a whiteboard and watching game footage on a big-screen TV . After feasts, patrons can stick around for games in Rossi’s arcade, which includes more than 17 classics such as pinball, foosball, and air hockey.

  • FroYo Love
    A visit to FroYo Love might challenge you to make the toughest decisions you've made in weeks. That's because the shop offers 16 different flavors of self-serve frozen yogurt daily, and the selection always includes sweet, tart, low-calorie, non-dairy, and no-sugar-added options. But choosing your flavors, which range from Irish Mint to Kahlua to Classic Boysenberry, is only half the battle. In addition to all those flavors, the shop features a toppings bar with 37 different options, including syrups, fresh fruits, and honey. Once you make your final decision or recruit a local jury to help you reach a verdict, you can hang out in FroYo Love's comfy lounge area while using the free WiFi or watching a pair of 50" televisions.

  • California Chile
    California Climbing Company's staff of safety-oriented, First Aid- and CPR-certified instructors imparts sierra-scaling skills to eager climbers.

Classes take place in a number of outdoor locales; students can elect a preferred location, just as they specify their ideal lesson plan. Lasting four to six hours, classes give students thorough instruction, plenty of practice, and a perfect excuse for missing their mailman's piano recital. Though climbing equipment is provided, California Climbing Company asks that all students wear comfortable shoes and long shorts or pants and bring sun protection, snacks, and three or four bottles of water.

  • Menchie's Frozen Yogurt
    The helpful staff at Menchie’s grants visitors the sweet-tooth independence to assemble their own glacial delights, streamlining the complicated art of frozen-yogurt consumption into three simple steps: mix, weigh, and pay. Patrons choose from a rotating menu of 14 flavors, such as cake batter, red velvet, chocolate-covered banana, and then bejewel the chilly masterpiece with topping choices such as fresh fruit, candy-bar pieces, fudge and caramel sauces, and Oreos with compound fractures. The regular New York cheesecake yogurts mingle with low-fat, nondairy, and no-sugar-added flavors, adding health-conscious options to the dessert-bar repertoire. Crammed cups or freshly made waffle bowls are weighed ($0.41/oz.), scores are settled, and cheerful taste buds skip off to enjoy frosty spoonfuls. Packed with live and active cultures, each cup or cone acts as a Trojan horse of protein and calcium that can lower cholesterol, boost immune systems, and topple legendary walled empires.

  • Broken Yolk Cafe
    According to Zagat, the portions of breakfast plates at Broken Yolk Cafe can be "obscene"—although one could also consider them generous. Sometimes, these sizes are even considered a challenge. In 2010, Man Vs. Food's Adam Richman paid the restaurant a visit to tackle its infamous Iron Man Special: a 12-egg omelet, topped with chili and piled onto a 15-inch pizza pan. Opened in 1979, Broken Yolk has spent decades fine-tuning its southwestern recipes—many enigmatically named for people such as "Betty" and "Tony G". Alongside steaming breakfast burritos and griddled buttermilk pancakes, the menu features nearly 13 omelets stuffed with fresh ingredients such as beef chorizo and avocado. Shredded hash-browns are crafted from fresh potatoes, and the salsa is handmade each day. Until its official closing time at 3 p.m., Broken Yolk also serves sandwiches and half-pound Angus burgers. The local chain's 13 locations each feature their own private banquet room and secret underground passage to one of the other restaurants.

  • Chick-Fil-A
    Chick-fil-A's chicken sandwiches became an instant classic one fateful day in 1967, when an anonymous Georgia chicken wandered into a hot, buttered bun and made history. Forty-some-odd years later, or 267 million chicken years, Chick-fil-A sandwiches are still made the same way, with boneless cuts of breast meat hand-breaded by mystic chicken ascetics, dill-pickle chips pickled from the freshest of cucumbers, and an optional golden wheat bun that is both golden and made of wheat ($3.35 including tax). Like gambling on horse racing, the original chicken sandwich is so dangerously delicious that you'll devour two without thinking twice, but unlike gambling, Chick-fil-A's sandwiches never contain dice, poker chips, or knee-breaking goons in track suits.
