Shackletons has been part of the Franklin Square community for some time, but it might feel different to recent visitors thanks to new management who has redone the space and menus. The happy hour crowd is equally as welcome as a family out to dinner, and the menu reflects this open-door policy—there's chicken fingers and macaroni and cheese, but there's also pork tenderloin and baked clams. Many of the entrees have an Italian flavor with eggplant parmigiana and pasta alla vodka, and seafood is plentiful with mussels, crab cakes, and fish and chips. Those seeking entertainment with their meal can stop by for trivia on Wednesdays, karaoke on Thursdays, or a live DJ on Fridays and Saturdays.

At Raxx Pool Room, Sports Bar & Grill, rows of pool tables gleam under bright lights, waiting for the clatter of opening breaks and thuds of 8 balls sinking into called pockets. As expert or novice players line up their cues on the pristine felt, ample space around the tables allows for game attempts at tricky shots or rounds of Hokey Pokey to calm nerves. True to the sports bar's name, pool isn't the only activity here—arcade games, beer-pong matches, dart games, and karaoke performances grant their share of entertainment, as well. At the bar, the lights are a bit dimmer, so guests can relax after games by watching sports on the slate of 18 TVs—plus a 100-inch projector—and pairing wraps and burgers from the grill with a selection of specialty cocktails.

When he decided to open a hookah bar, Farrukh Pakal knew that one thing had to be perfect: the seating. “If my body is not relaxed,” he reasoned, “I cannot relax my mind.” So, within Silk Hookah Lounge's cherry-colored walls, guests’ backsides will not bounce into a single hard-backed chair. Couches and sofas sprawl throughout the space, inviting patrons to linger over teas imported from Pakistan or hot chocolates sprinkled with coconut, cinnamon, or vanilla. And, perhaps most importantly, the cushy seating cradles holders of Egyptian glass hookahs. Like anger over an incorrectly punctuated parking ticket, these slowly burn for up to three hours, releasing scents of chocolate, mint, lemon, apple, or other fresh fruits into the air.

While enjoying their hookahs, groups can grab cards, dominoes, or other games as LED lights splash a rainbow of colors overhead. On weekends, DJs infuse the flavorful airwaves with music.

Teeth-brushing, breakfast, and bowling. For anyone who takes advantage of Jib Lanes' early opening at at 9 a.m. 365 days a year, this could just be a typical start to a great day. But it's not the only time for bowling lovers to get in on the action. The alley's 48 lanes also host birthday parties, seasonal theme weeks, and cosmic bowling set to Top 40 hits on the weekends. It also helps that Brunswick Vector scorekeepers stay on top of who's winning so that players can reserve their math skills for important things like calculating how many square feet of ice cubes can fit in a friend's bowling bag. The center's automatic bumpers make outings with little ones easier, and at the full-service cafe and lounge, bowlers take breaks with pals over drinks and snacks.

At offices in Great Neck and Floral Park, Dr. Lauren Schwartz leads a podiatric team that’s been keeping feet and ankles healthy for about 20 years.The office addresses general podiatry care for bunions, fractures, heel pain, neuromas, orthotics and diabetic foot care; patients can also opt for a bit of pampering: specially designed sterile pedicures keep toes relaxed and looking their best, and sterile manicures do the same for fingers. The foot facial gets skin ready for open-toed shoes and glass slippers.
