To create a casual, friendly atmosphere, Brushes n' Bottles allows students to sip wines they've brought to class while they deftly wield their brushes. Choose an evening or afternoon event, and use acrylic paints to bring to life a bright, contemporary masterpiece. Classes often feature locally themed designs. Paint shutters in the French Quarter, a proud crawfish, or the beach. Brushes n' Bottles provides all art materials in addition to offering corkscrews and ice buckets. After you're finished painting and partying, you'll have a canvas suitable for framing above the fireplace or nailing onto the fridge.

In 1959, Robert Trent Jones Sr. completed work on Timberlane's 7100-yard, par-72 golf course near the west bank of the Mississippi, and it still stands as a friendly, challenging round in a pleasant, private setting. Mature oaks line the sides of each Bermuda-grass fairway, and in 2007, Timberlane re-surfaced its expansive greens with Tif Eagle turf, giving putts a new zip and helicopter pilots a new view. Before hitting the links, sharpen up your chipping, putting, pitching, pitch-shifting, and Super Bowl Shuffling on the all-grass practice range and putting green, or try the driving range nearby. When you're ready, hop in your provided golf cart to match wits with the labyrinthine course, which features four sets of tee areas per hole, 17 water hazards, 80 sand bunkers, and 13 mechanical yetis. If he's around, see if you can snag a tip from resident PGA pro Tim Brown, who was named by Golf Digest as the #1 Best Teacher in Louisiana in 2009.
Area 51 Laser Tag immerses combatants in a maze of glowing partitions, neon barrels, and ominous radioactive symbols as they attempt to take out enemy players. The indoor battlefield places stealth and speed at a premium, with corners prime for ambushes and corridors that could doom slow-footed competitors. For a more relaxing form of recreation, guests can play video and computer games and lounge in front of flatscreen TVs.
