4. Eat Dinner In A Helium Balloon
Throw out the rulebook when you step into Grant Achatz’s Alinea, one of the world’s best (and most expensive) restaurants. With apple taffy served in helium balloons and entrees served in glass tubes, getting weird is now a dinner activity. And no, you don’t make reservations. You buy pre-paid tickets.
