Landry's, Inc.

Landry's, Inc. operates more than 30 restaurant brands with only two main goals: good food and good memories. Thankfully, each of their venues has a signature element that's hard to forget, whether the Oceanaire's fresh seafood—flown in daily—or Rainforest Cafe's animatronic wildlife that's almost as realistic as the Amazon's wind-up monkeys. Steak and seafood spots feature prominently on the list of Landry's locations, including Morton's The Steakhouse, Vic & Anthony's Steakhouse, and McCormick & Schmick's Seafood & Steaks. But there are standouts in other genres, too, such as the Italian trattoria known as Grotto.

Corso's Cookies

A mixture of an art studio and a bakery, the Corso's Cookies headquarters in Syracuse is home to a dedicated staff of icing artists. They're the ones who lovingly trace designs on each shortbread cookie, creating edible gifts that celebrate the birth of a baby, a graduation, or even just a day at the beach. The cookies come in shapes from soccer balls to blooming roses, and are individually wrapped in gift boxes or standing bouquets.

Wine Insiders

Enophile John Davis founded Wine Insiders 25 years ago, using his octopus-like industry connections to assemble a panel of wine experts who would seek out the best and most affordable wines. On average, his league of critics approves 5 out of every 100 bottles sampled, ensuring that only the most delicious wines get recommended to his customers. The team even offers a satisfaction guarantee: if customers aren't 100% delighted by the vinos they've selected, Wine Insiders will refund the full cost of the order, no questions asked—not even "So, you doing anything fun this weekend?" Despite its staff's legendary pickiness, Wine Insiders stocks a variety of red and white wines, including pinot noirs, pinot grigios, rieslings, and cabernet sauvignons, each joined by an informative description.

Stay with Optional Winery Tour and Tasting at Skylark Shores Resort in Lakeport, CA. Dates into November.

Hotel at a Glance: Skylark Shores Resort

Located in California's scenic Lake Country, the Skylark Shores Resort is set directly along Clear Lake (known as the "Bass Capital of the West") and features views of Mt. Konocti in the distance. A tranquil, nature-focused resort, Skylark Shores features plenty of amenities for boating and fishing, as well as picnic tables set under trees.

  • Angle for bass off the hotel's private fishing pier. There's also a cleaning area for prepping your catch.

  • Stay connected: You can access free WiFi from each room.

  • Wine tour and tasting: Select options of this deal include a winery tour and tasting at Steele Wines.

Lakeport, California: Clear Lake and Wineries

Sometimes called the "Bass Capital of the West," Lakeport is home to Clear Lake, one of the largest (and oldest) natural bodies of water in California. More than 100 miles of shoreline draw year-round visitors to this scenic area; they come to boat, swim, waterski, and, especially, fish. Largemouth bass, catfish, bluegill, and rainbow trout all can be caught here.

On land, hiking and biking trails abound, and there are more than 300 species of birds to spot along the way. Keep an eye out for bald eagles, giant salamanders, and river otters, too. The many wineries surrounding Lakeport are also worth checking out—the 23,000-acre Langtry Estate Vineyards is particularly nice. It offers daily tastings and tours.
