Walk into any of BreWingZ Sports Bar and Grill's 19 locations, and you'll be faced with many decisions. First, of course, is the food: the sports bar's crisp, juicy wings come in more than 25 different sauce flavors from classic suicidal hot to orange ginger. The mozzarella cheese sticks are carved from a cheese brick, breaded, and fried to order. And then there are the salads, sandwiches, burgers, and wraps. The family-friendly restaurant even gives kids an extensive selection with six child-friendly dishes, some of which include the same signature items their parents enjoy. But once you've ordered your food, there are a few more dilemmas: Which of the plentiful beers do you choose? Which game on the many massive HD televisions do you watch? Which one is the fork, again? Luckily, the spot's easygoing atmosphere and bounty of entertainment doesn't quite necessitate speedy decision making.

Hosted by the happy-hour champs at Lucky’s Pub, Halfway to St. Patrick’s Day douses eight bands and two DJs in green beer to welcome fall Emerald Isle–style. Atlanta duo Dead Rabbits puts a bluesy spin on vintage garage sounds, and local quartet Lost Element rocks crowds with a giant cradle while performing its latest EP, Back Again. Wielding metal riffs as sharp as they are funky, Downfall 2012 cuts grooves deeper than a fortune cookie on the ocean floor. Other highlights include rousing bagpipe jams and a performance by Eddie Peery & the Rattlesnakin’ Daddies, who blankets fans in comforting country covers.
Shecky's Girls Night Out makes planning a social outing between friends easy with its dozens of fashion, jewelry, and beauty product displays and samples to peruse. Having started as a published guide to New York City nightlife, Shecky's now stages stylish shindigs across the country and has garnered nationwide notice from media outlets—including Bloomberg News —for its ladies-only soirees. Drawing on its roots as a party-planning brain trust, Shecky’s relies on a talented staff to augment vendor wares with complimentary snacks and cocktails, goody bags, and makeovers. Take a peek at one of Shecky’s past events, where, like the locker room at a WNBA game, men are conspicuously absent.
Twenty television screens 42 inches and larger shroud sports fans in a high-definition blanket of live athletic combat at Coaches Pub Midtown, a friendly neighborhood watering hole specially designed to help hungry hominids tackle tasty American pub eats. Nosh fresh menu items such as fried mushrooms ($6.75) or homemade potato skins ($6) before your team's coin toss, then sneak in nibbles of the cheese-slathered half-pound Coaches pub burger ($9/dinner) between snaps of your hometown NFL or jai-alai squad. The 12-ounce grilled rib-eye steak arrives at your gnawing quarters sizzling in homemade steak sauce and neighbored by your choice of side ($15), while a proud culinary squad courteously removes the headset from each champion chicken fried steak before dousing it in creamy gravy ($12).
Platters of traditional bratwursts and kielbasa sausages march across Bar Munich’s menu in a Bavarian brigade of flavors crafted without any preservatives, fillers, hormones, or antibiotics. The juicy, beer-cooked bratwurst ($7.50) adopts the caramel maltiness of Breckenridge Avalanche ale, and the cheddar bratwurst ($7.50) hides its cheesy center beneath a thick coat of meat. Taste buds embark on a continental tour with the Eastern European–style kielbasa ($7.50), whose spices reflect the culinary traditions of countries such as Poland and the Czech Republic. All bratwursts are served on a baked roll with kraut and chips. To supplement their meaty offerings, Bar Munich teams up with a local German baker who twists fresh Bavarian-style pretzels ($5) to dunk into sides of hot or sweet mustard. Though this Groupon is not valid toward alcohol, Bar Munich fills steins and waterproof boots with Hofbräu beers by the liter. This lively nightspot also boasts an events calendar that includes regular movie nights and themed drinking games.
Every car is different, but they all look good after a fresh wash. The technicians at South Beach Auto Spa keep that in mind, delivering expert detailing services while taking the extra steps needed to protect vehicles. On top of traditional hand wash and wax services, the staff offers three- and five-stage polishing that buffs out nicks, scratches, water spots, or hood paintings of Princess Leia. Techs even use different wash sponges on the wheels than on the body, ensuring that sponges don't pick up the brake dust that can scratch a car's paint finish.
One of only a few local shops lucky enough to carry 3M products, South Beach Auto Spa also protects auto interiors with tint-installation services. Customers can gauge the potential appearance of different tinting films through a simulator, opting for color-stable, crystalline, or premium films. All tinting films are digitally cut using software and a Roland plotter, and help fend off UV rays and adverse temperatures while increasing each auto's security and appearance.
