Since 1973, Columbia Lakes Resort has spoiled putters with a sprawling 7,000-yard 18-hole course and luxurious accommodations nestled within 2,000 acres of woodland. Power architect Tom Fazio designed the course, which weaves through tall oaks, around lagoons, and beside a 300-acre lake swimming with trophy bass amid an elaborate underwater city constructed from clubs flung away in frustration. Perfect your putt on one of the four practice greens, including a furrowed chipping and putting green and a green with a bunker for practicing sand shots or building sculptures of your friends using golf balls for eyes. Players can also practice on the driving range, stocked with five target greens and four tee areas.
Walk into any of BreWingZ Sports Bar and Grill's 19 locations, and you'll be faced with many decisions. First, of course, is the food: the sports bar's crisp, juicy wings come in more than 25 different sauce flavors from classic suicidal hot to orange ginger. The mozzarella cheese sticks are carved from a cheese brick, breaded, and fried to order. And then there are the salads, sandwiches, burgers, and wraps. The family-friendly restaurant even gives kids an extensive selection with six child-friendly dishes, some of which include the same signature items their parents enjoy. But once you've ordered your food, there are a few more dilemmas: Which of the plentiful beers do you choose? Which game on the many massive HD televisions do you watch? Which one is the fork, again? Luckily, the spot's easygoing atmosphere and bounty of entertainment doesn't quite necessitate speedy decision making.

A Tony and Emmy award-winner, Jackie Mason has been tickling ribs via stage, screen, and stereo for more than 40 years. Unveil your full repertoire of chortles, giggles, and guffaws as you subject your funny bone to the relentless string of trenchant observations and wily witticisms supplied by the legendary laugh wrangler. Jackie Mason is known for such Broadway hits as The World According to Me and films such as Caddyshack II, as well as for founding the Masons, the secret shadow organization that controls all the world's humor. Each joke and comic jab comes wrapped in the opulent ambience of The Grand's 1,000-seat interior, whose intimate layout makes every gag feel as though it were hand-delivered by your personal gut-busting butler. The show begins at 3 p.m., with doors opening approximately a half-hour beforehand. Seating within the Grand Tier level is assigned on a first-come, first-served basis.

The soothing sounds of the saxophone and the call of the trumpet fill the air inside the Red Cat Jazz Caf?. Several nights a week, artists such as Brian Best and Dean James play on the caf?'s stage, which also hosts boisterous events including the Sunday Jazz Brunch.

Creative team TJ and Merlina Porter, both Clear Lake natives, joined forces with JeMarr Rivers to open a bar and lounge that offered an upscale, sophisticated nightlife scene. As of December 2011, JeMarr has trekked on as the sole owner while still maintaining the luxe atmosphere that draws crowds for nightly dancing and partying. An expansive interior paves the way for individuals or large parties, with a full reservation and VIP area for nights on the town or special occasions. The full bar slings beer, liquor, frequent specials, and 13 flavors of daiquiris, many of which are made with Everclear so that they can be used as a torch in the event of a power outage. During the week, live entertainment including jazz bands, standup comedy, and poetry readings fill the soundscape, and DJs spin tunes almost every night. Cultivating a truly carefree yet mature atmosphere, Daiqui-Ritas often hands out complimentary door prizes, which patrons can enjoy as they watch any of the lounge's five big screen TVs.
