  • River City Extreme Bowling
    River City Extreme Bowling and Pinz Oakdale provides a dazzling display of sensory stimulation. Bowling balls smack into pins, sending them scattering with a loud clatter. Groups cheer in tandem when strikes and spares happen, and groan animatedly when balls slip into the gutter. In the alley?s arcade room, machines buzz and ring as kids toss basketballs into hoops and send air hockey pucks through their opponents? goal. The laser-tag arena sends armed teams through black-light-illuminated rooms. Even the alley?s sports bar and grill gets in on the action, hosting several nights a week of karaoke, trivia tournaments, and origami folding.

Those looking to fine-tune their swings can employ the swing-honing powers of golf pro Kristi Dostal, who uses the club's facilities as her outdoor classroom for private and group lessons and junior camps. Name-brand gloves, clubs, hats, bags, and other course-ready gear line the racks of the club's pro shop, where players can stock up on golf accoutrements.

  • Pancho Villa Restaurant
    The ruleta wheel at Pancho Villa Mexican Restaurant sends tablefuls of friends into a frenzy when one of the bunch is chosen to take a spin. Landing on the right space in this wheel can grant the entire table free drinks from a selection of specialty margaritas and cocktails. This is just one of the ways the staff amps up the festive atmosphere in the restaurant—there's also karaoke every night Thursday through Sunday. And thanks to the flat screen televisions, patrons can keep an eye on their favorite teams as they face off with rivals or trade secrets for keeping their shoelaces tied. Patrons come as much for the atmosphere as they do for the menu of chicken flautas, cheese enchiladas, shrimp chimichangas, pork ribs, and other traditional Mexican cuisine. When the weather's nice they can dine outside, where umbrellas protect their entrees from the sun's sticky fingers. Regular lunch specials and the Monticello location's lunch buffet make midday dining even more enticing.
