Gas up the Caddy, grab your honey, park in the back (being certain it’s the Peppermill lot!), and slide in the rear entrance like a made man. What’s this? Neon-lit mirrors and ferns? A water-filled fire pit? Servers in classy cocktail dresses? Yes, yes, yes! Cheers: The fishbowl-sized Scorpion is perfect for snuggling and sharing.
For food that doesn’t require a trek through a casino, sink into a booth at The Peppermill, open 24 hours. The freestanding coffee shop has been serving classic diner fare for more than 40 years — you’d be hard-pressed to find a local who hasn’t basked in the glow of its gaudy pink neon lights at least once in their life.
