It's a good idea to arrive early at Movie Tavern, and not only if you hate missing the opening credits. Early birds can peruse the extensive menu of chef-crafted American cuisine, from kobe beef sliders to pizza and sandwiches. But even after the show begins, the snacks keep coming. Unobtrusive servers slip in during the show to deliver orders, and can be called on for more drinks or dessert with the push of a button. Guests can even sip margaritas or signature cocktails at the full bar before heading in to the theater. The family-friendly establishment also serves finger food for kiddies.

Anyone can sign up for free online to receive one free bag of popcorn, plus a free ticket every year on their birthday, special offers, movie news, and invites to screenings and other special events.
It didn't take long for the first professional hockey team in Evansville to make their mark; in just their second year in the All American Hockey League, in 2010, the fledgling IceMen won the Davidson Cup in seven games. Though that first clan of IceMen has since gone extinct, the team soon resurrected as part of the ECHL, where they serve as the minor-league affiliate of both the Columbus Blue Jackets and the Saint Louis Blues. During games, fans fill the 9,400-seat Ford Center arena as the polar-bear mascot, Blizzard, entertains crowds and teaches children of the dangers of costume warming.
Bob's 19th Hole, opened in 1976 by Robert and Vickie Schroeder, boasts an eclectic menu of classic family eats and a panoply of fresh, handmade burgers. Take a swing at a basic hamburger (a $6.29 value) or cheeseburger (a $6.99 value), or power-up with a patty covered in sautéed mushrooms and melted swiss cheese (a $7.99 value), perfect for postmatch hunger busting or for use as a bargaining chip with a course ranger. The nacho burger—10 ounces of ground chuck beef slathered in nacho cheese (an $8.99 value)—excites timid taste buds, and the Ultimate burger glides to gullets topped with crisp fried onions, lettuce, tomato, pickles, bacon, and Bob's special sauce (an $8.99 value). All burger platters arrive at tables sporting a dapper fez and flanked by a choice of potato and a side dish, such as baked beans, applesauce, or coleslaw.
The Venue at Horseshoe Casino offers big city entertainment from just outside the big city. Revelers pile into the casino's complimentary shuttles and set off for Hammond, where penny slots and game tables await before they file into The Venue. The acts taking the stage could land anywhere on the live spectacle spectrum: Penn & Teller might combine comedy and magic with the sound of only one person talking, MMA fighters could get adrenaline pumping, or Huey Lewis and the News could inspire audience sing-alongs.
Bear's Place, a 30-year old institution with new ownership, is planted adjacent to the Indiana University campus and is known for its social atmosphere. This reputation is thanks, in part, to its plethora of events?from Tuesday-night live acoustic shows to late-evening karaoke and other live performances from jazz and blues outfits. The bar also stakes its name on its signature drinks and a range of domestic and local craft beers served alongside specialty burgers and other American comfort foods. Wood-paneled walls, paintings of dogs, and bartenders with beer recipes tattooed on their biceps contribute to the rustic pub atmosphere.
