Here's a reason to toast: Scientists say drinking three glasses of Champagne per week helps stave off brain disorders such as dementia and Alzheimer's disease. So head to Pop Champagne & Dessert Bar and start exploring its extensive menu of bubblies, ranging from $10-per-glass proseccos and frizzante to $450-per-bottle vintage Champagne. Pop also serves a wide range of food and desserts, including its soufflé du jour. There's happy hour nightly from 5 to 7 p.m., as well as other specials aimed at bubbly bargain hunters: Tuesday, for instance, is Industry Night (happy hour prices for locals), while select bottles are 20 percent off on Wednesdays. (For more specials, check the website.) The purple-and-mirrored interior puts everyone in a good light at night, and adds an, um, pop of fun during the day. 33 E. Union St., Pasadena.
