Party Crashers Singing Telegrams handpicks a cast of silken-piped warblers, celebrity impersonators, and tribute artists to spice up special occasions ranging from holidays to corporate events. Talented crooners outshine the postman by showing up at doorsteps dressed as chosen characters and belting out personalized greetings and melodic interpretations of the latest gas bill.

Cinema Grill captures all angles of entertainment in its three show rooms, from newer movie releases and live sporting events blasting on giant screens to a rotating cast of comedians lobbing laugh bombs as crowds feast on fare from the full-service restaurant and bar. While actors work their best angles on the screen, patrons can translate their dialogue into Esperanto or order from the menu, which is laden with entrees and suds from the local brewmasters at Surly. The theater converts into a satellite stadium when it broadcasts live sporting events, which gain lifelike clarity on its giant 30-foot high-definition screen.
Named as an homage to one of the four historic theaters that once operated near what is now City Center, the New Century Theatre carries on the best of the stage. Whereas the original venue—which burned down in 1964—seated 2,000 and focused on vaudeville, the modern-day jewel creates an intimate space for theatrical performances with seating for 300. Since 2011, it has hosted local and touring performers as well as educational initiatives such as the Broadway Confidential series and an acting demonstration on how to cry your way out of a parking ticket.

Located down the street from Target Field, Darby's Pub & Grill opens its doors for the community to celebrate or commiserate after a nail-biter ballgame or rousing bout of gladiatorial combat. Diners can do so out on the open-air patio, which flows with draft beer and the aromas of toasted deli sandwiches, as well as hearty third-pound burgers crowned with zesty toppings such as blue cheese, pesto mayo, and bacon.
