Across nearly three-fourths of the United States, AMF Bowling Co. reverberates year-round as families, friends, and competitors send bowling balls in search of upright pins careening down slick lanes. The company first established itself as an industry leader in 1946, the same year the sport introduced automated pinspotters.
Today, more than 20 million bowlers annually make AMF their battleground for wars against pins. As the largest owner and and operator of bowling centers in the US, AMF locations offer high-tech scoring technology, a classic design, and a menu stocked with American-inspired classics such as wings, pizzas, burgers, and beer.
Real Time Sports & Entertainment, recently under new ownership and management, knows that it takes more than just their delicious burgers and hand-cut fries to keep their customers coming back night after night. They host live bands and DJs seven days a week to keep dance floors filled with partiers well into the night, while 22 high-def screens broadcast sports for excited fans. Meanwhile, bartenders whip up cocktails and pour beers that wash down dishes such as Cajun catfish poboys, turkey burgers, or chicken wings, as guests enjoy conversation and a convivial atmosphere. And no matter the day, the dedicated owners promise real people, a basket of fish with your name on it, and a bottle of ketchup with some guy named Heinz’s name on it.
At The Buzzer Grill and Bar, half-pound signature burgers destroy hunger alongside cold beers and beef mishkaki bathed in ginger.

HDTVs broadcast sporting events and live meditation tournaments until the bar's doors close at 1 a.m. on Thursdays–Sundays.
If the words Reindeer Manor have you imagining sleigh rides, warm cocoa, and carols by the fire...you might want to stay home. Because this Reindeer Manor isn't out to make you sing?it wants to make you scream.
Now in its 41st year of operation, Reindeer Manor Halloween Park facilitates thrills and chills with not one, but three haunted attractions in one location. Daring patrons must first brave the cursed hallways of Reindeer Manor Haunted House, it's setting inspired by the unspeakable horrors that occurred in the real-life Reindeer Manor around a century ago. Those who survive will find themselves forced to face the evils of the 13th Street Morgue, where an entire family was once murdered in cold blood. Then they'll make a descent into the Dungeon of Doom, which, in its heyday, was a saloon where several townspeople fell over dead after drinking tainted well water and finding out they were over-charged for it. If that description fails to send shivers up your spine, consider this: unlike at some haunted attractions, the spooks at Reindeer Manor can and may touch visitors at any time, meaning you may just find yourself one of the manor's newest residents before the night is through.

Ketchup Burger Bar’s inventive chefs bake their own brioche buns, handcraft black Angus beef, ahi tuna, and lamb burgers, and personally mix a quartet of ketchups, each with a distinct flavor quality. They use only organic ingredients for their specialty house burgers. The spiced ketchup unites a complex bouquet of cloves, cinnamon, and cardamom, and the chipotle ketchup bears a smoky flavor with a spicy kick. The ketchup burger, like a losing contestant on any Nickelodeon game show from the ‘90s, is drizzled with the sweet and tangy house ketchup, along with piles of tillamook cheddar, veggies, and grilled red onions. Crisp zucchini fries and garlic chive fries act as dams against tomatoey overflows, and creamy shakes and root-beer floats cool off palates still all hot and bothered from their burger indulgences.
Romantically lit by sconces jutting from brick walls and track lighting overhead, the restaurant’s interior pleases the eyes with burgundy wood accents. Flat-screen televisions hang over the full bar, their comforting glow reflected in glasses of wine and draft and bottled beer. The burger boutique offers free valet parking at lunchtime, along with ample underground spaces, ideal for those who like cave diving, but only from the comfort of their SUV.:m]]
