Besides being a sports-bar and grill, Peabody’s Billiard and Games racks up good times in the triangle of pool tables, dartboards, and foosball. Of course, the 70 TVs and on-premises liquor store don’t hurt either. Periodic all-you-can-drink happy hours and other special events take place every week, offering table athletes of all stripes an arena for friendly competition. Patrons might square off in the weekly beer-pong rally, or pit their psychic skills against each other in the weekly poker tournaments. All the while, the kitchen bustles into the night, preparing late night items using only the freshest ingredients such as the Southern-style fried calamari and Peabody’s signature wings in one of nine sauces.

"In street food, one can find the true spirit and culture of the local people." With this one statement on its website, the Flight Restaurant & Lounge team sums up the impetus for its entire restaurant. At the modern eatery, visitors can celebrate a cross-section of global flavors and culinary traditions that have been passed down through generations by both written recipes and subliminal messaging in top-40 songs. The menu spotlights dishes from around the world, including Cuba, the Philippines, Mexico, Thailand, and Pakistan—each crafted with authentic ingredients such as fried plantains and pickled okra.

The perfume of warming spices permeates the vibrant lounge, which often hosts live music and displays the works of local artists in a gallery section. The gallery, illuminated by overhead spotlights arranged in the shape of an airplane, donates 100% of its proceeds to the artists and charities including Instruments 4 Life, Global Community Outreach, and Advocates for World Health.

It's easy to both start and end a night at Blue Martini. During the early hours of the evening, guests can catch the last rays of sun on the patio as they dine on light fare such as fruit-and-cheese plates and flatbread pizzas. This lightness is necessary, because once the sun goes down, guests have to be light on their feet as the lounge turns into a full-on dance party. From then until closing time, guests can keep their energy up with glasses of wine or one of the house's 42 signature cocktails. The bartenders shake, stir, and blend together ingredients to make these drinks, which range from skinny-raspberry mojitos that contain less than 250 calories to the lightly flavored key-lime-pie martini or cucumber lemonade.

Under the spotlight, the uproarious T.K. Kirkland keeps cracked-up crowds in stitches during a show that combines laughter, music, and poetry, with proceeds benefiting breast-cancer research. Reprising crowd-pleasing material from Are There Any Questions?, T.K. Kirkland quizzes audiences on such universal subjects as relationships, self-esteem, and who does their dental work. The comic’s placid demeanor juxtaposed with his sharp and outrageous humor has won him spots on P. Diddy’s Bad Boyz of Comedy, the movie Comedy After Dark, and HBO’s Def Comedy Jams. Comedian-cum-host L.C. steers audiences through the evening, which also features live music and poetry to soothe inflamed funny bones. A special package for Groupon holders bundles goodies such as two souvenir glasses and a photo with the comic, who will also pose for brief still-life paintings.
