Situated at the long wooden bar, visitors to Vino Lounge browse a list of more than 30 wines by the bottle and 15 by the glass, each displayed along tall racks before their eyes. On the quiet patio, they dine and drink al fresco, perhaps pairing house-made sangria with food from sister business Marvin Mozzeroni's, which occupies the building's main level. The Messenger Post wrote that the semi-subterranean room "begs for visitors to sit down, relax and melt the work week away" by tossing their briefcases into the fireplace, while bartenders help even novice wine-drinkers "no longer fear wine."
Premier Sports Center’s indoor sporting haven pairs up-and-coming sluggers with an ultramodern quintet of pristine automated batting cages. With each token, good for 18 pitches, batters can refine the ideal stance, spit, and swing against balls hurtling at a variety of speeds. Three of Premier’s cages allow players to populate their orb onslaught with baseballs, softballs, or disembodied doll heads. Batters are welcome to tote along their own bats and helmets, though an on-site arsenal of noggin-shields and ballpark batons can ably equip the unprepared for frenzied rounds of sphere smashing. Though not included in this Groupon, Premier Sports Center also rents out outdoor tennis courts and an indoor astroturf sports field and boasts an on-site café with free WiFi and outdoor seating.
After years of watching their youngsters climb furniture and scamper across front yards, moms Andrea and Danielle were struck by inspiration. They decided to design a safe play place where lively whippersnappers could frolic freely and parents could relax without worrying about sidewalk-scraped knees, broken lamps, or child-snatching birds of prey. Thus, Jungle Jolt—an indoor playground and learning center—was born.
The Jungle Jolt facility, described as a place with "an unusually serene atmosphere" that's "squeaky clean" by reporters from Kids Out and About, abounds with child-centric activities. There's a colorful, padded climbing structure with twisting slides and sturdy cargo nets, as well as a fenced-off racetrack rink bustling with tricycles and scooters. There's also an innovative virtual indoor playground that projects graphics, sounds, and interactive games, and a laser maze.
As youngsters cruise around on toy cars and play basketball in the sport court, parents relax in the Jungle Cafe—an onsite snack bar with coffee and kid-friendly snacks. And no matter where they are in the facility, they can take advantage of the free WiFi.
