Zuni’s well-crafted pies heap toppings on golden dough to eliminate hunger, combining signature pizzas with the flavorful offerings of its Cedar Lake and Dyer menus. At Cedar Lake, on the honey mustard chicken pizza (14", $19.45), chicken and bacon garbed in honey mustard sauce stand sentinel over a field of mozzarella, glowering at the host of slow-roasted baby-back ribs ($17.95) massing nearby. At the Dyer location, sandwiches such as the Italian Beef ($6.95) or the Zuni Melt ($6.95)—thin-sliced beef drizzled in red pepper garlic mayo—satisfy stomachs so profoundly that they grow tiny hands to pat themselves with. Though patrons are encouraged to dine in and enjoy a bottle of beer while they wait at the Cedar Lake location, Zuni’s Dyer location prides itself on speedy delivery (not included wit

An oversize photograph of a rhinoceros hangs on one of the walls at White Rhino Bar & Grill, serenely surveying a kingdom accented by natural stone and brightened by the glow of 21 flat-screen televisions. With the noble beast’s blessing, diners can tear into savory American food ranging from griddled steaks and slow-cooked ribs to pizzas layered with andouille sausage, shrimp, and gouda. Bartenders mix cocktails, host wine tastings, and serve more than 110 beers, and DJs spin music that often leads to nighttime dancing and spontaneous daytime jazzercise sessions.

A smattering of 20 sauces and seasonings dripping from handspun wings coats patrons' fingers as they cheer on their favorite professional sports teams broadcast on Buffalo Wild Wings' TVs. Eyes are torn between watching teams dribble a ball, shoot a puck, and land a grand jeté, and plates of plentiful wings, burgers, wraps, salads, and ribs. For more entertainment, trivia games exercise brains, and the Blazin' Challenge offers recognition for those brave enough to down a dozen wings slathered in the eatery's hottest sauce in 6 minutes.

Blue 82 covers all the sports-bar bases by keeping its patrons well-fed and up to speed on their favorite teams' scores. As diners dig into heaping piles of nachos dotted with chicken or pork, servers move between tables, clearing empty plates that once bore burgers stuffed with cheeses and peppers. In the evenings, on-screen sports entertainment competes with music from live bands and DJs as bartenders pour out drink specials and crack open beers.

Twenty-five televisions seem like plenty of screens for watching pro sports, but at Bottoms Up Bar & Grill, they also have three 8-foot big screen TVs for an even more immersive sports-watching experience. However, when the TVs aren’t broadcasting sporting events, they take a back seat to a variety of other activities happening at the Grill. Guests chow down on steak sandwiches and personal-sized pizzas adorned with shrimp and sausage, while listening to the sounds of live bands jamming in the outdoor beer garden during warmer months or inside during the winter. And when the weather is warm, guests can also hurl bocce balls, basketballs, or beanbags during competitive games or confusing food fights.

Four Real Housewives from four cities—Sonja from New York City, Gretchen from Orange County, Kathy from New Jersey, and Phaedra from Atlanta—discuss their most talked about on-screen moments, answer audience questions, and share cast secrets, such as pressing gossip and gym-locker combinations. Orchestra seats place reality-television junkies in the middle of the venue and the VIP-ticket seats guests in the first 10 rows. In addition to up-close viewing, the VIP ticket includes an exclusive reception hosted by The Real Housewives with cocktails and hors d’oeuvres, a separate red-carpet entrance to the venue, and a limited-edition tour laminate with matching lanyard.
