Firecracker Burger at Skybox Sports Bar & Grill

Here’s a hamburger so hot you’ll have to sign a waiver to order it–literally. The 8-ounce patty is blended with Bhut Jolokia chili pepper, rated the world’s hottest pepper in 2007. It’s also covered with pepper jack cheese and chipotle salsa for good measure. If you do manage to finish this smoking-hot meal, you can extinguish the flames with an ice-cold draft beer, yours on the house. And no, refunds are not offered if you can’t make it through your meal. $18, in Aria, 590-8545.

Dates from China Ranch Date Farm

It’s the perfect day trip away from Vegas: In just a few hours, you could be sitting in the shade outside the farm’s retail shop, enjoying thick, creamy date shakes just yards from the date palms themselves. The shop sells all things dates, from baked goods and preserves to date rolls and the fresh, raw dates themselves. Choose the firm, less-sweet Algerian Deglet Noor dates or the soft, deeply sweet honey dates. Best part is, you can buy fresh, freeze them and thaw dates right in the bag without harming them.
