Anytime Fitness, which boasts 2,398 clubs in North America, makes it easier for average folks to etch out time for exercise by doing one simple thing: staying open 24 hours a day for 365 days a year. As fitness seekers challenge themselves on cardio and Hammer Strength machines and hoist Iron Grip free weights in clean, well-stocked facilities, security monitoring ensures they?re safe and producing enough sweat to meet official government standards. Members can also ramp up their exercise regimens with the help of Anytime Fitness?s staff of personal trainers, who demonstrate moves and sling motivating tips. After workouts, guests can shower in the private restrooms or hop into one of the tanning booths available 24 hours a day.
The Landing on Layton likes to boast that they?re so great that the state built an airport next to them. Regardless of why it actually happened, the restaurant is a haven for casual nights out in the shadow of small planes. Gaggles of friends settle onto red and wooden barstools or surround tables to grab slices of pizza or dive into beer-side nibbles of sour cream and chive fries. Along the walls, pinball machines, a foosball table, and video arcade games fire up healthy competition as the occasional live band croons from a small stage in the corner. Guests match wits during Monday-night trivia, and feast at the Friday-night fish fry?a great way to entertain visiting relatives or pet grizzly bears.
Libations flow freely inside Lakeside Pub and Grill, where New Glarus Spotted Cow and Miller High Life find themselves in neighboring draft taps. A menu of stomach-warming eats includes barbecue ribs, pizzas, and deep-fried fish sandwiches. Of course, no pub is complete without a quartet of flat screen TVs broadcasting the latest sporting events and a jukebox playing the latest Disney soundtracks. And when the moon shines high in the sky, chefs pile homemade nachos and parmesan cheese-dusted potato chips onto plates for some late-night snacks.
A half-pound burger, a frosty pint of beer, and a plate of wings with a choice of 10 different sauces?it doesn't get more Wisconsin than that. Well, unless you throw in a pool table and 10 massive TVs tuned in to the Packers, Badgers, or Brewers. While everybody will no doubt feel welcome at The Lodge, this Cudahy restaurant and bar is a true slice of heaven for the Wisconsin sports fan. Sidle up to the island bar for speciality cocktails or a feast of pizza, chicken wings, and freshly harvested mozzarella logs.
