The nature of the seasoning that gives Whiskey Dick's Five Star Dive Bar’s handmade, never-frozen beef patties such a bold flavor will forever remain a kitchen secret. The origin of the 5-Star Stack burger’s name, however, is anything but secret: the towering structure consists of two grilled cheese sandwiches that bookend two patties crowned with grilled onions and bacon. Along with the behemoth entree, Whiskey Dick’s menu includes bar classics such as mozzarella sticks hand-dipped in housemade breading, as well as a half-pound ground beef burrito rolled in a jalapeño cheddar tortilla.
To complement the meaty dishes that emerge from its kitchen, Whiskey Dick’s hosts entertainment every night, including football games broadcast on a 108-inch HD screen. Open jams let musicians gather for impromptu melody making, live bands rock out every weekend, and acoustic musicians play after-dinner sets that soothe stomachs more effectively than the nightly lullabies you sing to your navel.

The instructors at Michiana Dance believe that beginning dancers will learn faster, feel looser, and move better when instructed alone rather than around a group of equally uncomfortable strangers. During private lessons, students learn a variety of dances such as ballroom, West Coast swing, country two-step, or Latin dances as personalized, one-on-one feedback helps them sharpen their technique and fix mistakes quickly. The instructors can also prepare brides, grooms, and wedding parties for the dance floor, helping turn first dances into jaw-dropping performances and chicken dances in to tear-jerking manifestations of grace.
Dubbing the theater “The Palace” when it opened in 1921, Chicago architect J.S. Aroner strove to capture a regal ambiance with a patchwork of diverse, though uniformly opulent, building styles. Patrons today can spot baroque, Greco-Roman, and even art-deco designs as they drift through the restored rose, blue, and cream entryway. But in 1959, The Palace was crumbling, and it seemed that future generations would miss out on this aesthetic experience. A concerned citizen by the name of Mrs. Ella Morris swooped in, though, purchasing the building for an undisclosed sum and then selling it back to the city for $1, which she promptly blew on gumballs. Newly named, the theater welcomed such acts as Louis Armstrong, REO Speedwagon, and Fleetwood Mac in the ensuing decades until a major, two-year overhaul began in 1998. Now restored to its original condition, the venue hosts standup acts, Broadway musicals, big-name concert performances, and fully produced ballets.
Voted Best Italian Restaurant in 2010 by the readers of the Kalamazoo Gazette, Erbelli's and their elite squad of dough gurus dish out an eclectic array of pizza pies and traditional Italian eats. Famished patrons can customize their own gourmet pizzas with one of eight different crusts, including original hand-tossed, deep-dish, gluten-free, or whole-wheat crust, and a plethora of meat toppings, types of cheese, veggies, and seasonings. Erbelli's in-house specialties include the Disco Q pizza, a homemade Cajun crust covered in blue cheese, spicy wood-grilled smoked chicken, mozzarella, and sharp cheddar, and the Grizzly Bear pizza, jam-packed with six fresh meats including meatballs, genoa salami, and spicy capicola ($15.39+ each). Diners seeking noncircular chow can peruse the menu for Italian favorites such as chicken mushrella calzone—crammed with pizza sauce, fresh mushrooms, and grilled chicken ($7.99+)—and the smoked turkey breast and ham submarine sandwich ($5.99+). Vegetarians or time-traveling brontosauri will relish the assortment of fresh salads and carb-fiending customers will get their noodle fix from the selection of pastas.
