A salsa-dancing hotspot by night and a palate-pleasing eatery by day, Martini Bar & Grill’s seasoned chefs churn out a well-rounded menu of breakfast and lunch specialties as bartenders concoct accompanying brews. Palates preferring the yolky flavors of daybreak eats can time travel to prenoon hours with eggs benedict or sausages tucked into pancake blankets. Cuban sandwiches, mac 'n' cheese, and salmon with garlic mashed potatoes conquer guests' cravings for savory noontime feasts. As entrees slowly disappear, unlimited mimosas sate unquenchable thirst with nips of bubbly champagne and tangy orange juice that tango atop taste buds or mambo down guests' bibs.
The members of PAN Performing Arts Network bring a range of backgrounds to their international collective: some are experienced musical composers, guitarists, and singers, while others are established teaching artists and actors. Their expertise allows them to gather all the arts under one roof with an annual performance season and more than 40 regular classes each week. These classes span instruction in dance styles such as ballet, modern, Afro-Haitian, and Irish step, as well as training in creative movement, acting, instrumental music, and voice. Instructors tailor their classes to the needs of beginner through advanced-level adults, children, and children disguised as adults. They also provide classes suited to senior citizens and students with special needs.
Billy’s Pub whips up its beer-friendly menu of robust pub classics until 5 a.m. seven nights a week. Diners can sidle up to the full bar and dig into an Angus beef burger ($6), which tag-teams taste buds with a piping hot side of fries. Bones rejoice in scoring their daily calcium requirements with a grilled-cheese sandwich ($3) or an appetizer of mozzarella sticks ($5), and a buffalo-chicken wrap ($6.50) or 12 wings ($11) delivers Super Bowl–worthy flavor. At Billy’s, bar-goers looking for a little spirited competition man battle stations at the foosball table, challenge their college record at beer pong, or snag pool cues from the billiards tables and reenact their favorite jousting scenes from that stint working at Medieval Times. For a little air, patrons head outside onto the patio on Saturday evenings when Billy’s hosts live DJs and Texas Hold ’Em games to help dance and game the night away.
The rhythmic whirring of fruit-annihilating blades, punctuated by the crunching of ice and glugging of poured juices, courses through Smoothie King’s health emporium. Guests select from a bountiful selection of made-to-order beverages in seven categories—including Stay Healthy, Trim Down, and Get Energy—each formulated with specific fruit combos to help bulk up muscle or trim down waistlines. The Raspberry Sunrise balances out its tartness with honey, while the exotic Mangosteen Madness showcases the Southeast Asian fruit along with strawberries and papaya. Guests can augment their fruit flavors with one of 11 enhancers, such as a vitamin and calcium blend to strengthen joints, or a 125 mg Caffeine Charge enhancer to temporarily make mowing the lawn less sleep-inducing.
