When Lanny Parkhurst first dug out a fishing hole for his daughter, he had no idea what it would become. More than a decade later, this fishing hole has spawned an entire business?Big Whiskers Catfish Farm?along with the TV show Catfish Warz. Visitors don't have to be reality-TV stars or lost seabirds to try their luck in the pond. Nor do they have to know how to cook a catfish, since Big Whiskers happily allows catch-and-release fishing. You can walk away with your catch for a per-pound fee, or just stop into the clubhouse for catfish fillets and other snacks. There's just one fish you can't take home: the pond's mascot, Big Mel, a beast so massive he requires two men to lift.

Nothing that happens inside one of QuickDraw Nashville's simulators is real, but it's a close approximation. A camouflage design decorates the exterior of these rooms, and inside the long, darkened space ends in a giant screen, where a projector displays different scenarios. Faux pistols and rifles lay on a long table, and visitors use them to aim at video targets or perhaps a simulated zombie attack. These virtual firearms look like their real counterparts, aside from the long chords that feed into the simulator.
