Onsite at the Barbara Worth Resort, Caddies Sports Tavern offers a casual alternative to the linens and champagne brunches of the resort's Fields Steakhouse. Along with a wealth of draft beers and a full selection of spirits, a menu of wings, juicy burgers, and cheese-crusted pizza makes mealtime a cinch. The food is delectable and the beer specials are enticing, but for many, Caddies' appeal is in its warm, no-frills atmosphere. Friends meet, cheer, and munch here, the glossy bar top glinting in the light of the myriad flat-screen TVs. These screens loom above large windows, accenting the interior's den-like wood walls with live updates of sporting events and where Waldo currently is.

Ace Hardware's well-stocked aisles abound with home goods, tools, and furnishings for nearly any home-improvement project.

Home improvers can illuminate their newfound décor with a 6-pack of Ace bent tip light bulbs ($17.94), the better to see by while making use of a Purdy four-piece premium paint-tray kit ($19.99). For those who need to match paint to a favorite coverlet or choose a hue that complements a pleather recliner, most stores offer a paint-matching service free of charge. Keys can be copied, and barnacle-encrusted carpet cleaned with the help of a rented carpet-cleaning machine (inquire about pricing at your preferred location).

At Nori Sushi Bar and Grill, chefs fuse traditional methods with new-wave techniques to transform fresh seafood into more than 20 specialty rolls.

But Nori’s selection stretches beyond sushi to full entrees, such as the teriyaki steak topped with a house teriyaki sauce. Diners enjoy the dishes inside the restaurant, which is adorned with bamboo plants and cat statues, or outside on the patio, next to the sand-colored exterior and underneath crimson umbrellas.
