Walls festooned with faux turf and wood shingles bring the outside indoors at The Garden, where the menu corrals flavors from Italy, Japan, and Latin America onto plates of classic American fare. Chefs wrap soft-shell crab and deep-fried lobster into sushi rolls and slowly cook Coca-Cola-braised baby-back ribs for up to eight hours. To further fuel festivities, The Garden features extensive wine and scotch menus, bottle service, 16 beers on draft, and an onsite humidor with cigar brands such as Gran Habano and Rocky Patel. After catching the game on a flat-screen TV indoors, patrons can venture to the outdoor patio to sip a double-malt under the glow of a heat lamp or tie-dye sheets from the white overhead canopy in a burbling fountain.
At Ricky's Paintball, the desert field's design incorporates both constructed and natural obstacles, such as wooden structures and shade-bearing trees, where combatants try to blend in before opening fire on opponents. Before play begins, referees acquaint beginners with the basics, then clarify safety rules so players of all experience levels feel comfortable stepping onto the field. Teams commence shooting at one another in a hailstorm of color, picking out their opponents from their teammates as they target from behind obstacles and duck around corners incognito. Once the shots have ceased, teammates engage with one another in a picnic area fortified with cold refreshments and materials for building a Trojan horse before the next game. Outside the playing field, Ricky's Paintball also encompasses a pro shop, and on select occasions, hosts Airsoft play to gunmen who have their own gear and use only biodegradable ammo.
Aqua Spa delivers all the therapeutic benefits of traditional massage without ever laying a hand on the client. Spa sessions utilize specially engineered Aqua Massage machines, which use water jets to simulate the therapeutic touch of a fingertip massage, but allow for more precise targeting of trouble spots. Sessions may also help drain the lymphatic system and reduce the appearance of cellulite, and because the automated massage keeps clients dry, they can enjoy all the benefits of massage while remaining fully clothed or dressed in their favorite hot-dog suit.:m]]
