I Ate Everything On Rainforest Cafe's Menu And Barely Made It Out Alive

This is a truly bizarre place to visit at least once. It's taken the Julia Tries Everything crew four years to make it to the quintessential '90s rainforest-themed restaurant Rainforest Cafe. We promise it was worth the wait. With only 23 locations worldwide, it's an endangered species of its own. Luckily we found one just outside NYC at Menlo Park Mall in New Jersey. We've been to several themed restaurants over the years (we'll never forget Margaritaville), but nothing could prepare us for the fully immersive experience that Rainforest Cafe brings. There's rain, fog, thunderstorms, elephants (animatronic), gorillas (also animatronic), and iconic bar stools mimicking safari animals' behinds. Known as part adventure, part restaurant, I can confirm it's a truly wild place to visit at least once. Here are the 10 best things I tried. But first, some top-line questions: What is Rainforest Cafe known for?The restaurant was originally known for having live animals in the dining room. These days, you will no longer have parrots swooping across your plate. Do you get to keep the cups?Depends. For most of the cocktails on the menu, yes, you can take the glass home. How often does the show happen?Our location promised a thunderstorm show every 19 minutes. We've been told you can convince your server to activate the thunderstorm for special occasions if you ask very nicely.

The northern lights: nature's most beautiful phenomenon

The aurora borealis is a stunning natural phenomenon that blows away anyone lucky enough to catch a glimpse of it. Science says it is the result of sun particles colliding with the Earth's atmosphere, but Icelandic legends say the magical lights are angels dancing in the sky! This spectacular natural light show is usually associated with Europe's most northern countries like Iceland, Sweden, and Denmark, where it's most visible. However, this aurora season, which kicks off in March close to the spring equinox, the world is getting an extra-special visit. The northern lights have been visible in locations across northern US states and Europe with spectacular clarity. A geomagnetic storm was forecast to begin on March 23 which strengthens the appearance of the aurora borealis. Photos taken by skywatchers in the early morning on Friday, March 24, showed incredible pink and green light waves adorning the skies in France, England, and US states like Minnesota and Montana. Residents of these areas rarely see the northern lights, and certainly not with this level of visibility. Some lucky travelers whose planes passed through these northern regions on Friday morning felt as if they were flying through some exotic, far-flung galaxy. If the storm continues, the Space Weather Prediction Center says that the lights might dip as far south as London or Washington D.C. If you missed the live show, don't worry. Click on for dazzling photos of the phenomena and learn all about the aurora borealis.
