The paint-wielding professors at The Tipsy Canvas instruct budding Rembrandts and veteran Da Vincis in the joyous practice of applying acrylic pigment. Brush bearers ages 5 to 12 can attempt linear perspective with a two-hour lesson in which they paint guitars, cupcakes, and other kid-friendly subjects. Flocks of friends can migrate to an adult class, bottle of wine and snacks in tow, for a three-hour tutorial on still-life subjects, such as delicate cherry blossoms, breezy lighthouses, or an esoteric revisit of a hand-traced turkey.
The home of "increasingly famous burgers," Wild Horse Saloon & Grill spreads out tasty pub fare in a building that previously served as a church and a community theater. After finding a seat, guests can grab a handful of free peanuts, fling the shells to the floor in slow motion, and check the menu for potential edibles. The Stampede burger's hand-pressed, one-pound patty of Angus beef is smothered in a slew of toppings including bacon, four slices of cheese, peppers, and chili and arrives with a heap of hand-cut french fries ($12.45). Diners can also blow their tongues' minds with a "somewhat famous" chicken sandwich ($7.45) or bite into the eatery's "completely obscure" fish entree, the grilled mahi mahi sandwich ($7.95). Thin-crust pizzas ($5.95–$17.95) can be ordered from a selection of signature styles, customized with an array of fresh ingredients, or quickly stacked into a pizza-cake in the event of an impromptu wedding.
FunFlicks Outdoor Movies’ inflatable screens transform backyards, gymnasiums, and parks into pop-up cinemas, complete with the accessories needed to screen media of all types. Helpful attendants drop off and set up the screen for an evening’s viewing, along with high-definition projectors, DVD and Blu-ray players, and booming audio equipment or an optional short-range FM broadcast. Screens in 12’ and 18’ sizes provide intimate viewing for groups numbering in the dozens, whereas behemoth 45’ screens can support audiences of more than 5,000 or act as a comfortable air mattress for a sleepy giant. The rentals can also be used to display slide shows, video games, and live television, and additional amenities such as popcorn machines provide guests with theatrical comforts.
