  • Glenwood Roller Rink
    As skaters glide across Glenwood Roller Rink’s polished hardwood, the lights flashing over their heads might as well belong to a time machine. That’s how convincingly the rink captures the essence of those carefree days when you first held hands in couples skate or landed your first flawless triple axel. A team of DJs keeps things festive throughout roller-skating sessions for all ages, pumping out upbeat tunes to fuel the nightly festivities. They wisely opt for a soundtrack tinged with soul on themed nights for adults.

  • Champion Golf
    Highland Course at a Glance 18-hole, par 72 course Total length of 6,954 yards from the back tees Course rating of 73.6 from the back tees Course slope of 138 from the back tees Five sets of tees per hole Lakes Course at a Glance 18-hole, par 72 course Total length of 7,016 yards from the back tees Course rating of 73.2 from the back tees Course slope of 135 from the back tees Five sets of tees per hole When course architect Roy Case designed the 36 holes that would become Wildcat Golf Club, he drew inspiration from two distinct styles by laying traditional Scottish links-style holes over the undulating Texas Hill Country topography. Players encounter lots of tall grasses but few trees as they eventually reach 100-foot elevations, where they'll catch glimpses of Houston's skyline, Reliant Stadium, and the Galleria. The Club is divided into two 18-hole courses: the Highlands Course and the Lakes Course are each blanketed in TifSport Bermuda grass fairways and TifEagle Bermuda putting surfaces so smooth that golfers have reported reaching into the cup and pulling out a single red rose instead of their golf ball. Though situated next to one another, each course bears its own unique set of challenges. Deep ravines and strategically placed bunkers befuddle players on the Highlands Course, while the Lakes Course lives up to its name with water as its defining characteristic. A series of lakes comes into play on seven holes, nowhere more dramatically than on the twelfth hole, a unique par 5 configuration whose tee box, two fairway sections, and green are separated by intersecting water hazards, which double as watering holes for thirsty golf carts.

  • Ravisloe Country Club
    Founded in 1901 and given a facelift by prolific course architect Donald Ross two decades later, Ravisloe Country Club's 18-hole, par 70 course cleaves through tree-lines and sandtraps for a challenging, 6,321-yard layout. Golfers should spend extra time at the driving range or golf-cart-lifting area to prepare for the round: they'll face the course's most difficult hole at the second tee box. A 535-yard par-five, number two threads a narrow fairway through mounded rough, fairway bunkers, and trees. The same hazards pop up again throughout the layout, which also features water hazards on three holes. The ancient course is not the only feature that speaks to Ravisloe's rich history. The Club's Spanish Mission-style architecture winds the clock back to the 1920s—when it was constructed—with stucco walls and a roof constructed of adobe shingles.

  • Art Attack
    In 2009, Linda and Greg Racino were reaping the benefits of more than two fast-paced decades in the tech industry. Something was missing, though—creativity. So in February of that year the couple left behind the cold digital world for a brightly colored studio warmed by a blazing kiln. Lining their shelves with finished and unfinished clay and glass pieces, the Racinos today deal solely in creation. They guide customers through pottery painting and glass fusing—from picking out a blank bisque piece to arranging a unique design of glass pieces. Guests can also check out the calendar of events to learn about upcoming discounts and special projects, or to find out what day it is.

  • Flossmoor Station Restaurant & Brewery
    While most people saw a worn-out and rickety building when they looked at the old Flossmoor Train Station, Dean and Carol Armstrong saw potential. The duo had often dreamed of opening a brewery of their own and thought the Flossmoor building—with it's rich history, rustic wood fixtures, and lofty ceilings—could be the perfect venue. After months of scheming, toiling, and repair work, Dean and Carolyn opened the doors to Flossmoor Station Restaurant, inviting guests to bask beneath the sun on the lush outdoor patio, sample their handcrafted beers, and peruse their menu of homemade dishes. Today, Flossmoor Station has become a bustling gathering place, where locals and tourists alike clink glasses as passing Metra trains toot their horns in the distance. In the kitchen, chefs whip up entrees infused with beer from the brewery—such as the Station Master Wheat Ale-battered fish and chips, a dish that was lauded by reporters on Chicago's Best. Meanwhile, in the upstairs fermentation vats, skilled brew-masters fold pale malts and specialty grains into award-winning wheat beers, brown ales, and IPAs—including the refreshing Zephyr Golden Ale and the aromatic Gandy Dancer Honey Ale.
