After praising J.R. Crickets' chicken wings, karaoke shindigs, and live music, Metromix went on to declare the late-night-dining destination a place where "[m]odern chic and good times meet." J.R. Crickets' culinary crew lightly fries or grills seafood, slathers baby back ribs in sauce, and carefully calibrates wings to three levels of spiciness. Diners can opt to take feasts to-go or kick back in the eatery, where TVs and live DJs forge an atmosphere as high-spirited as a haunted mountaintop.
The Ultimate Bar & Grill’s chefs break free from the shackles of pub-grub conventions with a revamped menu of bar starters and full-grown entrees. Platter pamperers steep 24 wings in a sauna of spices, such as lemon pepper and sweet chili ($17.99), before massaging rémoulade and marinara into fried green tomatoes ($6.99). Cloak Vienna beef dogs in an ensemble of Chicago-style duds, including mustard, relish, veggies, celery salt, and Prohibition-era fedoras ($6.99). Twinkle-toed clusters of snow crab legs quickstep through Cajun seasonings ($19.99), and chicken ($13.99), steak ($14.99), or shrimp ($15.99) cascade across the teriyaki stir-fry's mound of peppers, onions, and garlic. Taste buds plunge into the drink menu's wines, suds, and creative cocktails, such as the vodka-laced Electric Lemonade.
It's hard to go hungry at K's Soulfood Cafe. Their chefs specialize in dishing out hearty meals served with a pair of classic sides and a corn muffin or fries and a drink. This ensures that each plate features a range of rich flavors, whether it is a slab of ribs with collard greens or whole fried chicken wings with mac and cheese. Guests can finish of their meals with sweet potato pie, banana pudding, peach cobbler, and other homemade desserts that satisfy a sweet tooth better than braces made out of licorice.
The red-lit corners, the tieback curtains, and the white leather banquettes all say it: Epic Lounge & Bistro is a place for a night on the town, adult-style. You can get a full meal of thoughtful American cuisine, but later nights call for for tapas-size portions to pass between rounds of martinis, cognac, or champagne. Depending on the day, the crowd might be dancing to bumping '90s jams, laughing at a local comedian, or, if it's Opposite Day, having no fun at all. And when there's not a DJ spinning hip-hop and R&B, there might be a live jazz band to keep spirits high.
One glance at the scorecard, and it's obvious Wolf Creek Golf Club isn't for the faint of heart. The course is an imposing 7,028 yards from the back tees, but distance with the driver, long irons, and golf-ball trebuchet aren't enough to conquer the course alone. The rating and slope of 73.5 and 142, respectively, don't tell the whole tale: lofty as they may be, players must play the course for themselves to truly appreciate its clever mix of length and strategy. Low flatland holes and holes strung along wetland areas characterize the par 72 layout, all tied together by meticulously maintained fairways and greens.
