I've heard of "Rainforest Cafe," but not eaten at one.  Since the national
championships of Highland Dancing will this year be held in the Mall of
America in Minnesota, I may in July have yet more weirdness to report; I
remember a historian of science colleague saying that "Rainforest Cafe" was
about as good as that mall gets.  Any tips for survival and thriving in
those parts will be welcome.

The restaurant I described was new-ish and had "Mayan" in the name.

Perhaps we should have a contest to imagine the weirdest theme/theatrics
restaurant possible?  Fondue, with lederhosen and Alpenhorns being blown on
the half hour?  Curry, trained elephants and spandex yoga poses?  Haggis,
hill runners and curling demonstrations?
