At Skol Casbar & Grille, flames waft aromas of sizzling steaks, fish fillets, and sandwiches to tables where patrons pore over a full menu. Grilled catfish, salmon, and pork chops can be topped with a choice of grilled onions, tomatoes, or mushrooms, and sides such as blackened green beans and garlic potatoes let patrons surprise their mouths without hiding a firecracker in their napkin. Skol Steak Mondays sate twosomes by layering plates with a duo of steaks, garlic mashed potatoes, salads, and drinks.

Skol Casbar & Grille also equips catered events and in-house parties on the restaurant's patio. A selection of barbecue, Mexican, and Italian dishes fuel conversation and can easily be consumed while celebrating birthdays or hosting model U.N. meetings.

Intrepid wing-seekers can slide into King of Wings and wrap their fingers around perfectly sauced wings as well as other scrumptious casual-fare selections. Starting with shareable appetizers, diners can sink incisors into hot chili-cheese fries or practice their fencing technique with the mozzarella sticks. Wings arrive basking in the warm embrace of eight different sauces, such as lemon pepper, hickory barbecue, or chicken. Main courses of tasty protein-packed morsels napping between bread cushions delight patrons, allowing them to nosh on the smoked-cheddar-and-bacon burger or the gyro, all served with fresh-cut regular or sweet-potato fries.

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.

Canadian electrofunk duo Chromeo exhales party-starting inertia, kicking off its Night Falls Tour by rolling out a carpet of dance-floor passports. Melding the talents of guitarist, vocalist, and French-literature buff Dave 1 with the dexterous fingers and throwback savvy of synthmaster P-Thugg, Chromeo has earned reverence from funkophiles for its slick grooves and mastery of jam architecture. Fans can expect congenial beats, riffing Moogs, and songcraft that father-and-son yachts can enjoy together in support of the band's latest album, Business Casual. Inflating the soulful evening, singer, producer, and multi-instrumentalist Mayer Hawthorne channels wandering Motown spirits with a retroactive Detroit sound, and mustachioed party maestro DJ Sammy Bananas sets the scene with genre jumping and remixes that rumble like tubas in a Cuisinart.

If the “Tortoise and the Hare” taught us anything, it’s that slow and steady wins the race. And at Tony's Barbecue & Steak House, slow and steady cooking has ordinary dinners beat with pork ribs and brisket that spend a good 12 hours sizzling over South Texas hickory. The barbecue meals are joined by hearty steaks, smoked ham and turkey plates, and quail dinners. Many of the menu items are cooked with one of founder Antonio Ruiz's secret recipes for dirty rice, barbecue sauce, and pork and brisket rubs. Before opening the first Tony’s Barbecue in Baytown, Ruiz spent 15 years developing his craft at a local barbecue restaurant in Houston.
