The clatter of pins ripples through Cloverleaf Lanes, which proudly plays host to the longest-running American bowling tournament. But one need not be a pro to fling a ball down these lanes. Ample open bowling times mean that even newbie bowlers get a chance to experiment with bowling grips, whether using three fingers, four fingers, or their feet. Between games, guests can perch on one of the chrome stools at the snack bar or quaff a tasty brew chosen from the lounge's beer menu.

Plates piled high with Emerald Isle favorites share real estate on Murphy's Ale House's tables with burgers, sandwiches, pizzas, and hearty bowls of beer-cheese soup. Irish staples such as hand-breaded fish and chips and housemade shepherd's pie warm up bellies for upcoming bagpiping marathons. Frothy pints of Guinness pour freely into pint glasses or barbecue sauces, which chefs then use to smother baby back ribs and jumbo chicken wings. Pitas and pretzel buns keep slices of corned beef and ham warm on the coldest of nights, and American-style hoagies and burger sliders supplement the cavalcade of Irish fare. The pub's doors, located just over a mile from Cinemark Valley View, stay open until 2 a.m. daily, keeping patrons up past their bedtimes to take part in nightly events and boisterous football chants.

The aroma of Southern-style barbecue fills Tavern of Solon, rising above the top of its restored 1950s high-school scoreboard and up to the ceiling. Under the watchful eye of owner Rich Earle, the casual pub crafts dishes such as Angus burgers topped with Carolina-style barbecue pork and smoked or fried wings entirely in-house. The pillars of the menu, though, are the slow-smoked barbecue platters—pork, brisket, chicken, and baby back ribs—paired with traditional sides, including coleslaw and cornbread muffins. Events, such as live music on Saturday nights and screenings of Sunday- and Monday-night NFL games, contribute to the lively atmosphere. Decades-old photos of the city of Solon line the walls, conjuring a blend of local pride and nostalgia.

With more than 60 years of combined rug-cutting experience, La Danse Cleveland's co-owners, Esther Rehm-Cohen and Tim Brown, have helped untold numbers of students twirl, hop, and belly slide across the dance floor. Certified as a ballroom instructor in 1981, Esther has won national awards for her teaching skills and has had the distinct honor of training couples who have gone on to rank in competitions. She garnered the position of head coach of the Case Western Reserve University ballroom team before fate's two-step led her to a partnership with Tim to run La Danse Cleveland's ample 6,000-square-foot studio. Boasting a background that includes competition in professional arenas as well as work as a dancing judge and a choreographer, co-owner Tim delights in crafting group classes and private lessons that excite and challenge students.

Included on the studio's roster of lessons are styles from Viennese waltz to nightclub two-step, along with sessions tailored specifically to children and to adult fitness goals. In classes and dance parties open to the public, students and social dancers alike rendezvous with Esther, Tim, and their impressive stable of instructors, whose resumés include stints with such world-class companies as the Boston Ballet and Gene Kelly's gutter-cleaning company.
