Besides strengthening arm muscles, thighs, glutes, calves, and Jeff Bridges impressions, 10-pin bowling at 300 Bowl strengthens socio-familial bonds by giving friends and families a newly remodeled, casual, clean arena to challenge each other over chit-chat and a set of styling rental shoes. Bring your poetry friend or play your fantasy baseball buddy, or build camaraderie with a coworker after a long day coworking. Fellow stone-slingers can take a break from breaking up betrothed pinheads with a couple of large fizzy beverages and a bucket of buttery popcorn before picking up that dreaded 7-10 split and buying it a drink.
Seven years ago, Rico's Mexican Grill brought its brand of Tex-Mex to The Woodlands. Today it boasts five locations throughout the region as well as a family of 400 employees. Together, the staff members adhere to the original restaurant's high standards for fine Mexican cuisine with a local twist. In their family-oriented eateries adorned in classic Texas decor, such as Matthew McConaughey's searing gaze, they serve a menu of enchiladas, tacos, and sizzling fajitas. The fajitas are especially a source of pride. They marinate the meat in a secret sauce for 24 hours and serve the grilled morsels with housemade tortillas. Aside from traditional Tex-Mex entrees, they grill enticing fare such as quail and red snapper. To compliment their dishes, they mix mean margaritas and cocktails and fill glasses with imported and domestic beers and wines amid frequent live entertainment.
Baker St.'s Oklahoma City menu offers pub classics along with tacos, sliders, and generously portioned sandwiches. Start with an order of the tripper dipper ($7.99), a medley of fresh salsa, creamy queso, and savory spinach-and-artichoke dip served with tortilla chips. Then filch a hearty helping of shepherd's pie ($8.99), a delicacy of seasoned ground sirloin, cheddar, whipped potatoes, and tomato mixed together and served with green beans and potatoes. From tender, crisped fish and chips ($7.99–$9.99) to a buffalo-chicken sandwich ($7.99) and southern-style mini-chicken sandwiches ($7.99), the menu's flavorful items bode well with a liquid companion. An impressive beer selection and a full bar shine during daily drink specials and happy hour, but they also provide an equally enjoyable sudsy-nectar blast to taste receptors at any time.
Pinot's Palette combines wine and art to create an enjoyable night out with friends or a date. The painting sessions encourage adults' inner artists whether they have any painting experience or not, encouraging light-hearted conversation, fun, and good cheer while painting and sipping BYOB beverages. Each session's painting of the night may feature anything from landscapes and wine-inspired art to known classics such as Van Gogh's Starry Night, and each painter tackles from their own artistic angle under the guidance of an experienced instructor. At the end of the night, painters can take their painting home with them and ring a "Gong of Awesomeness" on their way out to signify a good time.
Walk into any of BreWingZ Sports Bar and Grill's 19 locations, and you'll be faced with many decisions. First, of course, is the food: the sports bar's crisp, juicy wings come in more than 25 different sauce flavors from classic suicidal hot to orange ginger. The mozzarella cheese sticks are carved from a cheese brick, breaded, and fried to order. And then there are the salads, sandwiches, burgers, and wraps. The family-friendly restaurant even gives kids an extensive selection with six child-friendly dishes, some of which include the same signature items their parents enjoy. But once you've ordered your food, there are a few more dilemmas: Which of the plentiful beers do you choose? Which game on the many massive HD televisions do you watch? Which one is the fork, again? Luckily, the spot's easygoing atmosphere and bounty of entertainment doesn't quite necessitate speedy decision making.
