The palatial, airy expanse of Drillers' Restaurant & Bar provides plenty of space for big groups and intimate conversations alike. Brick walls, high ceilings, and a slick wood bar and floor shape the room with rustic cleanness, while the mouthwatering fragrances of steak, ribs, and wings compete for hungry diners' attention. Over beer or appetizers, sports fans glue their eyes to flat-screen TVs, while music lovers time their visits with the restaurant's regular live entertainment.
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.
The Tipsy Canvas first sprang into being in 2009. The founders wanted to create a new way for people to engage with art, even if they lacked experience. They found that step-by-step instruction from an artist and a glass of wine to loosen up gave people that opportunity. They now have three Texas studios where other artists follow their teaching example and help students recreate original works of art.
A nonprofit community venture, the Aurora Arts Theater strives to enrich the Corpus Christi area by providing live performances that showcase the talents of local artists. Based on the book by Terrence McNally, The Full Monty follows the au-naturel aspirations of a group of unemployed steel workers in Buffalo who concoct an unlikely money-making scheme after taking note of their wives' captivation with male strippers. As the story and the wardrobe unfurls, the men discover the importance of friendship and regular waxes while renewing self-esteem and reclaiming control over their destinies.
