The 35-foot electric-guitar art piece suspended on the dining-room ceiling at FM Food and Music All-American Bar & Grill reflects the restaurant's musical theme. Live bands, dueling piano acts, and karaoke fill the restaurant with music several nights a week while diners dig into burgers and entrees of bacon-wrapped meatloaf named after chart-topping tunes.
Gatsby?s offers its patrons plenty of entertainment, from the cheers that erupt from boisterous sand-volleyball games on two courts to the resonating vocals of live bands. Guests can watch live performances from their seats as servers cart around trays filled with ranch-chicken pizzas and jumbo wings deep-fried in housemade Jim Beam barbecue sauce. Other finger-friendly foods include a half-pound Gatsby?s burger piled with saut?ed mushrooms, onions, swiss cheese, and bacon, as well as a deep-fried and breaded pork tenderloin stuffed inside a Kaiser roll. Outside, a fleet of picnic tables provides ample seating, and a nearby sand court proffers games of volleyball to tiebreak sandcastle build-offs. Gatsby's offers two outdoor patios, and hosts a Bike Night on Saturdays.
The energy rarely dies down at Trabue Tavern. When the seven high-definition televisions aren't drawing attention with their broadcasts of the day's biggest sporting match, the upbeat neighborhood tavern finds other ways to keep patrons entertained and occupied, whether it involves a quick game of pool or live music. Karaoke nights allow guests to croon their favorite hits, although bands also appear from time to time and perform for the crowds. While the bartenders keep busy pouring beers and mixing cocktails, the cooks dedicate themselves to preparing a variety of appetite-sating comfort foods, including hefty sub sandwiches and burgers.
One of a family of comedy clubs serving as key laugh generators in more than 25 cities, Columbus Funny Bone sits in the shopping and entertainment hub of Easton Town Center. Since 1987, luminaries such as Drew Carey, Jim Breuer, and Dave Chappelle have taken the stage in front of audiences enjoying drinks and the bounty of a large food menu stocked with sandwiches as thick a first-grader's favorite book of knock-knock jokes, funnel-cake fries, and wings doused in a signature blueberry-haba?ero sauce.
