After putting their heads together back in 2005, sisters Lynn Grissom and Susan Bucci came to open the first Little Gym in Rhode Island. The concept was simple: positively impact kids by helping build confidence and self-esteem through noncompetitive, fun classes. The result was a curriculum-based program that got kids aged 4 months to 12 years active through a variety of classes. At the Smithfield location, instructors focus on "movement, music, learning, and laughter," during courses held six days a week.

Lively piano bar Powers Pub lubricates sticky throats with tasty mixed-drink specialties and wines so they can sing along with the rotating lineup of nearly nightly live music acts. Bartenders please liquor-likers with delightful cocktails such as the Good Night Kiss, a vanilla-vodka-based concoction with Lazzaroni and Copa de Oro liqueurs and crème de cocoa topped with whipped cream. Imbibers can fill up on the menu's enticing plates of honey-habanero wings ($7) or helpings of Queen's Envy pizza ($11), a walnut-and-basil pesto pie that coats shrimp with marinara purely to spite allergic female monarchs. Frequent Monday trivia nights test useless knowledge capacities, while a program of performers singer-songwrites an agreeable quaffing soundtrack.

Seasonal sports flicker on flat-screen TVs at Part II Lounge, where a menu of lip-smacking pub grub coasts down esophagi on foam-capped surfs of domestic suds. Starters such as pulled-pork nachos enable table-wide bonding and barbecue-sauce-smothered thumb wars, with winners scoring a homemade roasted garlic hummus platter with toasted pita chips. Toe-tapping tunes pour from an on-site jukebox, underscoring chews on an all-purpose munchies platter that combines chicken tenders, mozzarella sticks, onion rings, and seasoned fries onto one sprawling salver. Spirits soar on the dance floor thanks to infectious riffs from live bands and DJs, and the dulcet clack of ricocheting balls echoes throughout the lounge on Mondays and Tuesdays during complimentary pool games.
