J.D. Legends nourishes entertainment-hungry families with a massive facility stocked with bowling, a restaurant offering Southern-style fare, a bar, and an arcade. The 24-lane bowling alley features a new-and-improved scoring system to better capture lane-skipping curveballs and light-speed strikes. During open-play hours, shoes gently cradle the feet of their temporary masters as lanes brace themselves for the hurtling of bowling balls down their slender midsections. The lanes frequently host themed parties and events, including cosmic bowling every Friday and Saturday night.

The facility?s art-deco carpeting and citrus-colored decorations invigorate bowlers with game-enhancing visions of early 20th-century French heydays and afternoons spent lazing about under yellowed skies.

Even though they cheekily dub their beverages Fancy Schmancy coffees, the baristas at Heather's Coffee and Caf? are serious about brewing flavorful java. To showcase their four drip styles, they concoct drinks such as the Dirty Chai, a blend of espresso and chai tea, and the Smore's, which mixes espresso and steamed milk with the three ingredients of the classic campfire snack.

The pours complement the cuisine of the caf?'s chefs, who begin every morning by filling tortillas with scrambled eggs, cheddar cheese, and a choice of bacon and ham. By lunchtime, the chefs' focus turns to salads, sandwiches, and pizzas, including the Yummo, a medley of garlic pesto, shredded chicken, and corn-and-black-bean relish. Meals unfold Monday?Friday; on Saturday and Sunday, the caf? closes for private events and baristas-only coffee-ground fights.

Saxbys Coffee delights taste buds with coffees brewed from small-batch roasted beans. Green coffee beans journey from their country of origin to Saxbys' roasting facility, where the master roaster employs traditional European techniques to carefully roast each small batch of beans, giving them a light, medium, or dark flavor profile.

In-store baristas spice up cups of java with more than 200 flavorings, such as coconut and toasted marshmallow, that imbue brews with an extra kick. Saxbys Coffee is just as meticulous with the environment as it is with its beverages—all of the shop's lids, java jackets, napkins, and cups are 100% recyclable and 100% welcomed by billy goats attempting to curb their tin-can addictions.
