At Ernie Biggs dueling piano bar, musicians Mike Tuten and Chris Porcelli face off across 176 black and white keys, taking requests and inviting party people up on stage to join them on Fridays and Saturdays. Meanwhile, dozens of beers, martinis, and cocktails, and a menu of submarine sandwiches and specialty pizzas keep spirits high.

With iridescent miniature golf courses in malls throughout North America, Glowgolf adds elements of phosphorescent fun to shopping sessions. Courses contain sights such as light-defying blush corals, incandescent animals, and lush foliage reminiscent of the glowing trees on Neptune. Each pass is good for three 18-hole games, giving golfers ample opportunity to get familiar with each hole's obstacles. Equipment is available on the spot, so players won't have to carry around personal clubs or seek out a bioluminescent caddie.

Andy Williams designed his Moon River Theater to echo the beauty of the surrounding Ozark Mountains. The façade sits amid 16 acres of foliage, rock formations, and waterfalls to not only enhance live performances with a sense of natural discovery, but also to speak to conservation. In 1992, the state of Missouri recognized the venue's environmental efforts by granting it the Conservation Award for Developed Land Use. And that sense of conservation seeps into the theater's three lobbies as well. Koi swim through ponds, flora creeps toward the ceiling, art and performance pictures from Andy's private collection grace the walls, and wild rams hold head-butting matches in the restroom.

Although it was popularized for its starring role in several episodes of the 1960s hit show The Beverly Hillbillies, Branson boasts a longstanding history with the performing arts. Today, a cappella ensembles, celebrity impersonators, and veteran Broadway singers stage dozens of shows every night along the Strip. Even the town itself toys with theatrics, with The Fountains at Branson Landing surging skyward amid fire cannons during frequent spectacles. Cradling Branson, the encircling plateau of the Ozarks sets a precedent for spectacle. Rolling slopes recede into misty abstractions, transforming into a russet-and-gold patchwork quilt each fall. Beneath the earth, monumental caverns boast summits and crannies of their own. Tours of Talking Rocks Cavern weave through fantastical stalactites, and Marvel Cave, one of the Ozarks' oldest attractions, ensconces visitors in a sinkhole-carved entrance room large enough to have once hosted hot air balloon flights and stegosaur birthday parties.

When the Landers burned in 1920, it could have been the end of the theatre's 10-year run as one of Springfield's top vaudeville stages. Instead firefighters from four stations, an asbestos curtain, and a fire-retardant buildup of applause on the wood ensured that the show went on?despite soon switching to the silver screen. Then, in 1970, the historic building began yet another history-making chapter when it became home to the Springfield Little Theatre, which switched the venue's focus from "talkies" to plays. Today, audiences passing through its lovingly restored Baroque halls take their seats to watch one of the eight productions the SLT puts on every year.
