Snooker's Pool & Pub's two locations pair the excitement of a billiard game with a menu of pub food and a fully stocked bar of liquors and beers. From pizza to sandwich platters, the menu nourishes billiard spectacles, and bartenders stir drinks such as rum and cokes or long island iced teas.
Open year round, Hydeaway Golf Club's 18-hole, par 71 course unfurls across 130 acres of kempt fairways framed by trees and tranquil ponds. Water hazards come into play on more than half of the holes, creating strategic quandaries such as when to attempt to carry a distant pond and how to tell if provocative messages in a bottle were intended for you. Tall tree lines further complicate golfers' passage, stretching out their twiggy arms in a quenchless desire to scuff up dimpled orbs. Golfers can choose to loop the emerald links on their own bipedal steam or enlist a GasCar golf cart to help hunt down errant balls or misplaced playing partners.
At Dylan’s, customers find themselves contemplating a generous spread of entrees and tapas, sushi, and an extensive wine list. For starters, patrons can slurp a bowl of clam chowder ($7) or chomp on single pieces of red-snapper (tai, $3), bluefin-tuna (toro, $8), or squid (ika, $2.75) sushi, then transition to a plate of lobster mac 'n' cheese ($8) or flash-fried coconut shrimp with pepper jelly ($11). After a sweet helping of Japanese– inari tofu-vegetable rolls (6 pieces, $5) or a squid-and-octopus tako salad ($7.50), omnivorous eaters can set their appetites at ease with a serving of beef-tenderloin tips tossed with whole-wheat pasta ($20), a 12-piece sashimi combination plate ($22.50) served with sushi rice, or a platter of frog legs ($15) in hot-pink leotards. Clogged body pipes can then be flushed with a glass of Cartlidge & Browne sauvignon blanc ($9), Latour chardonnay ($7), or Montoya pinot noir ($9).
The self-proclaimed home of the $1 draft, Dooleys Tavern keeps 20 beers cascading from their taps. Those suds complement the chefs' pub food, which includes American tavern classics such as half-pound burgers and up to 50 chicken wings doused in a choice of four sauces. The draft beer house also concocts American dishes with an Irish twist such as corned-beef sliders and a pizza filled with mashed potatoes and topped with bacon and red onions.
Seven nights a week, Dooleys’ three locations keep guests entertained until 2 a.m. on an outdoor patio, in a room full of classic bar games, and with plenty of HDTVs showing the game. The trio of taverns also accommodates up to 100 guests for private parties. Additionally, the Mount Clemens location pairs feasts with sidesplitting routines from standup comics in Carmen's Showroom.

G Willies Bar & Grill's most popular offerings may be its deep-dish pizzas, which arrive tableside loaded with toppings such as shrimp, crab meat, and alfredo sauce, or covered with BLT ingredients and mayo. But according to Owner Barry Ludvigson, patrons would be remiss to overlook the soups and chili. The chef whips up housemade soups from scratch every day along with a Hog Wild bourbon chili that has won awards in local contests and from the chef's best friend. The kitchen staff also fries tortilla chips and pairs them with a spinach-cheddar-jalape?o dip and flame-grills thin-crust pizzas.
Guests nosh on the creative bar food during trivia nights, euchre tournaments, and karaoke sessions. Occasionally, G Willies hosts tap takeovers, when different craft breweries fill the pub's kegs with their signature brews.
Taking a well-deserved break from L.A. alt-rock legends the Red Hot Chili Peppers, drummer Chad Smith struts his solo stuff backed by his Bombastic Meatbats, a high-energy instrumental outfit. Smith and company tread the vocals-free path of funky jazz-rock that was invented out of necessity after President Nixon outlawed singing, filling the Ritz with their manically merry tunes for one night only. Special guests including Fires in Japan, Endorphin, Shram, and more bands will whip the crowd into a lather before The Meatbats take the stage. The Ritz features all the amenities of a winning rock club, including a bar, pool tables, and a large floor that’s great for dancing, head-bobbing, or loudly pining for the days when people use to lie down at rock concerts so everyone could see.
