Voodoo Doughnut at Universal Orlando

voodoodoughnut.com

So you've spent the day at Universal's theme parks sucking down Butterbeers and you want to put that fatal finishing touch on your sugar coma? Simply stop by CityWalk's new Voodoo Doughnut and order the Wooden Coffin. For $139, you'll receive three dozen pastries – piled high with toppings from breakfast cereal to bacon – and a 3-foot-long casket to carry them in. You'll be ready for the big sleep if you eat them all, but they won't be able to fit you in the box.

Best Beer for Bands

Namesake beers for local bands at Ten10 Fest

ten10fest.com

Live music at a brewery isn't exactly a new concept, but Ten10 Brewing Co. on Virginia Drive went a step beyond for their Ten10 Fest this past October. In addition to inviting 10 mostly local bands to throw an all-day hootenanny in their back parking lot, they invited five of those bands to brew their own signature suds to serve. From American Party Machine's Fireball cinnamon whiskey-inspired red ale to Fat Night's hibiscus-infused pale ale, the variety of brews gave the festival a little extra local love that we hope to see replicated again.
