Bunkers fashioned from metal barrels and tires protect inhabitants from volleys of enemy fire, as the smell of grilled hamburgers wafts through the air. Madddogz’s outdoor paintball fields immerse players in friendly combat while giving spectators, family, and friends a place to celebrate special occasions. Players can hunt their opponents in wooded areas littered with wrecked airplanes, used tires, and wooden fences in games of elimination or all-out battles. Meanwhile, civilians can mingle with their friends inside covered picnic areas while enjoying a packed lunch or cooked meats from the grill.
There’s cigarette smoking, and then there’s cigar smoking. Bonnie and Clyde's founders David Harrison and Roz Stafford believe that, unlike a cigarette that’s hurriedly puffed and thrown onto a nearby pile of oily rags, a fine cigar deserves to be savored in a relaxed setting. Bonnie and Clyde’s provides such a setting with its comfortable cigar lounge, outfitted with overstuffed couches, a large flat-screen TV with surround sound, and a poker table. Elsewhere in the store, cigar aficionados stroll through a walk-in humidor stocked with high-quality Montecristo, Romeo y Julieta, and Arturo Fuente cigars, as well as the store’s line of long-fill, hand-rolled house cigars. Customers can stock up on raw materials such as aromatic Dominican and Ecuadorian wrappers and pipe tobacco, or pick up essentials such as cutters and humidors. The store maintains coed credentials with its Ladies' Cigar Club, which showcases a new cigar each month as staff members introduce women to the art of cigar smoking in a no-pressure environment.
At Waxahachie Gymnastics Center, kids and adults cartwheel, tumble, and leap their way through gymnastics classes. Students can cultivate the perfect roundoff in tumbling sessions, or learn how to create a stable pyramid during cheer lessons. Tumble Tots classes help little ones build balance and agility while assisted by their parents, whereas preschool classes teach beginner skills such as cartwheels and backbends. Once students have mastered the basics, they can join one of the gym's competitive teams, which incorporate advanced techniques into floor and trampoline routines.
