  • Maggie’s Sports Bar & Café
    Sports-bar proprietor Maggie Smith got her start in the restaurant industry at 17, working as a server at local institutions such as the Bleeker, Mona Lisa's, and Alteri's before earning a coveted management position at Garlic John's. In the summer of '94, Smith hit the jackpot on a Pick 6 ticket at the Saratoga Track, winning enough to buy her place of work and add her victory to the annals of historic moments decided by horse races, alongside Secretariat's record-setting run in 1973, and Seabiscuit's elevation to the US Senate in 1936. After several years of building a successful business at Garlic John's, Maggie bought the old Son's Tavern building on Western, envisioning a warm, welcoming sports bar full of friendly neighbors, flowing beer, and crowd-pleasing pub fare. Today, the restaurant entertains crowds of college kids, off-duty businessfolk and state employees, plying them with personal pizzas, Italian pastas, chicken wings, and burgers alongside frosty brews and cocktails. Visitors share hearty cheers and earth-shattering high-fives as they watch college and pro sports of all varieties on the array of LCD screens or pit their brains in gladiatorial combat with weekly trivia contests. Friday-night karaoke and Saturday-night live bands entertain multitudes with the sweet strains of popular music, and a tucked-away banquet room sequesters private gatherings of up to 100 from the welcoming revelry of the main bar area.

  • Rainbow Golf Club
    The 18-hole course at Rainbow Golf Club takes players careening across a 6,287-yard layout carved into the foothills of the Northern Catskill Mountains. Players rip tee shots from one of five sets of tees per hole, allowing for an enjoyable yet challenging round for greenhorns to green-jacket holders. As rental carts transport players across the well-manicured landscape, they must take care to avoid tree-lined fairways, undulating greens, and feral caddies looking to stock up on golf balls for winter's hibernation. The course's signature hole is the 13th, a 135-yard, par 3 that forces golfers to carry their tee shot over water onto an island green, the only known island in New York. A pro shop, practice facilities, and a restaurant with an outdoor patio overlooking the course all provide entertainment when golfers aren't practicing their postputt struts. Course at a Glance: * 18-hole, par 71 course * Total length of 6,287 yards from the back tees * Course rating of 70.8 from the back tees * Course slope of 126 from the back tees * Five sets of tees per hole

  • US Budokai Karate Headquaters
    If you're taking classes at US Budokai Karate Association, there's a chance your future children will go there, too. After all, it's happened before. Budokai has been one of Albany's most serious martial arts academies since 1987, and instructors say they've recognized countless surnames on their class rosters, only to find out they taught the pupils' parents, too. If you do have a child you'd like to introduce to karate, you won't have to wait long. Classes in the Tiny Tigers program accept students as young as age four, teaching them not only balance and coordination, but also focus and teamwork. In fact, all of the classes at the studio focus as much on building character as on developing physical skills. That's not to say, though, that students don't use the classes to get in shape. The cardio kickboxing class, for instance, uses up-tempo dance music to keep students moving and make squares work out by shaking their fists in disapproval.
