Desert Pines Golf Course feeds golf clubs a bounty of spherical fodder ready to be lined up and launched off open tee-off areas. The golf lesson includes a 60-minute driving-range session with certified instructor Robert Giles, where he will provide professional tips and amateur high-fives to improve students' club-swinging capabilities. Golf apprentices need to bring only their golf clubs and a violent odium toward dimpled balls, as the course pro will provide the range balls used in the lesson. Giles recalibrates out-of-whack swings, helping golfers of all ages and skill levels put more mustard on their drives, hone their chip shots, and hand their putts a detailed map to the hole like a Grand Canyon tour guide. Open from dusk until dawn, Desert Pines Golf Course's driving range features grassy tee-off areas, along with a chipping and putting green where golfers can take swings at returning wiffle-ball eggs to their flag-marked nests.
It's difficult to even mention Sandwichery Sandwich Shop without saying the word "sandwich" at least three times, which makes everyone hungry for the eatery's savory grilled chicken breast, pastrami, or club sandwiches served on french bread or whole wheat. In addition to their bread-enclosed offerings, the shop also serves chili, and desserts such as chocolate pie. The Sandwichery was established in 1986.

Visitors who prefer icy sweetness through a straw can opt to have any Blue Bell flavor morphed into milkshake form. Sweet Tooth's food court location makes it a refreshing respite for tired holiday shoppers in search of a chilly fuel-up or non-frozen dessert; the friendly staff also serves up brownies and cookies, baked fresh.

Join the only professional football team in the Permian Basin for opening night of its hard-hitting 2011 season. Named after the state's iconic oil workers and random sightings of reptilian skin growth throughout the area, the Roughnecks stand ready to unleash staggering stiff-arms and aerial antics on the pigskin-hungry crowd at Ector County Coliseum. Be on hand as the team ushers in its division-rival— the Bricktown Brawlers—for a bone-crushing commencement to its 2011 Indoor Football League campaign. To celebrate opening night, the first 1,000 fans will receive Roughneck rally towels, great for cheering on the squad and sopping up yellow stains caused by eating an unhealthy amount of mustard-filled hot dogs, causing oddly-specific saffron sweat to drip onto your shirt.
