Kick off a meeting of local weavers by passing around a basket of cheese fries ($4.69) sprinkled with bacon (+$1) for a decadent meal-starting treat, or share an antipasto salad ($8.99) with a pro-pasto pal. The hand-tossed, New York–style pizza, fired in St. Johns' brick oven, promises to please the pizza-anemic and is available by the slice, starting at $2 for sensible noshing, or by the pie, starting at $8.29 for a plentiful portion. Choose to customize your supper by selecting from more than 20 toppings, or opt instead for a specialty pie, such as the meat lovers ($13.99+), loaded with smoked bacon, meatballs, ham, pepperoni, sausage, and cheese. Sandwiches at the eatery are served on scratch-baked bread, and the plentiful selection of entree pastas can satisfy the herbivore in your jury with the brick-oven baked ziti ($10.99) or tempt the bird-beaked with chicken Benevento ($15.99), a tender cutlet nestled between a bed of ziti and a blanket of mushroom Rosie Alfredo sauce.

The Sun-Ray Cinema at 5 Points, formerly known as Riverside Theater and 5 Points Theatre, is a historic single-screen movie theater in the Riverside section of Jacksonville. Originally opened in 1927, the large room was specifically designed to accommodate live theater as well, in the event that talking movies didn’t take off as expected. Over the years, the theater was opened and closed numerous times as a performance center, a night club and general cinema house, until the Jacksonville Historic Preservation Commission approved it as a Jacksonville landmark and remodeled the space several years ago. Colorful murals give vibrancy to the updated space, while comfortable seating and long wooden tables in front of each row act as wonderfully modern touches, allowing each guest to set down food and drinks easily. P, pulled pork sandwiches and a host of not-seen-everywhere snacks make for a unique experience inside.

Located on Jacksonville’s south side, The Comedy Zone has been hosting some of the nation’s finest standup comedians for decades. Tucked away inside the Ramada Conference Center and Hotel, the Comedy Zone is a quaint, dim, charming nightclub venue filled with cozy tables and chairs. The thick carpet underfoot cushions the space further and keeps noisy shoes and squeaky chairs to a minimum. The small, gleaming wood stage is back-dropped by a large brick wall, reminiscent of so many other famous comedy clubs. Over the years, the stage has played host to a variety of national touring comedians and lots of local Florida talent. A full bar and a variety of burgers, sandwiches and appetizers are available to order, and can count toward the room’s industry-standard one drink or item minimum. Of course, that means comedy fans must be at least 21 years of age to enter the Zone.
