Sometimes being an adult is lame. Check out these picks--sweets shops, an arcade, a bowling alley, and more--and go act like your 12-year-old self again. Just don't blame me if you get kicked out.
Swing in for a gratis chocolate and grab a surprisingly tasty chocolate-mint milkshake on your way out!
Beyond bowling, there's billiards and cheap(ish) beer to be had here. Great for bowlers who don't want to spend the evening with a bunch of kids.
It's all about nostalgia here. Nothing's particularly gourmet, but portions shareable and crowd-pleasing. Good for kiddos. Service is brisk.
There's always a line down the block for friendly Doug's encased delicacies. The menu is lengthy, but I recommend opting for the "game of the week" special. Duck fat fries are only available on Fridays and Saturdays are a totally necessary indulgence.
Swing by in the a.m. for the "egg in a hole" or scone and a coffee, or any time for an Airstream (aka Twinkie), a cake ball, or a house-made s'more.
Believe the hype and get in line (although the line's sometimes non-existent on weekdays). The chestnut glazed and bday cake special are tops.
They come for the burgers (amazing!) but they fall in love with the giant, hand-spun shakes (to die for). Be an insider and ask for the off-menu Elvis shake or Speculoos shake. You really can't go wrong.
You want gray M&Ms or bulk green apple gummies? This is your spot. Stick to candy over baked goods or chocolate and you'll be on a Cloud 9 sugar high!
Truffle/marshmallow/caramel/drinking chocolate heaven. The drinking chocolate is divine, but so rich that you'll wanna share.
Who doesn't love a yummy doughnut--esp when it's in a fancy flavor like pb&j or maple-bacon?! Cute storefront w/ fun employees. Grab a cuppa Metropolis coffee and hang out with your laptop.
A BYOB brunch spot with gussied-up eggs and sweet dishes. Best feature: Nutella on each table.
This place is a blast! From Galaga to Dig Dug to Frogger, they've got all the classic 80s games. Excellent craft beer selection too.
