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."
The Art Stop is a fine art store with a gallery of all local artists and a frame center on the ground floor. Upstairs we have a studio where we have art lessons for adults and children as well as birthday parties and workshops like the glass painting workshops
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.
As a summer developmental team for college ballplayers, the Webster Yankees bring a slice of the national pastime to local communities and help prospective pros hone their hardball artistry. Budding sluggers and future fireballers take on their New York Collegiate Baseball League rivals in the verdant confines of Basket Road Stadium from June 3 through July 25, vying for the eye of major-league scouts and learning to wield wooden bats rather than the aluminum polo mallets used in the college game. Fans may catch glimpses of tomorrow’s big-league bruisers, as Yankees alumni include recent draft picks of the Atlanta Braves, Baltimore Orioles, and Cincinnati Reds. In addition to cheering on aspiring amateurs, audiences spend pregame moments rollicking to concerts on select dates or recruiting ringers for their company’s intramural piñata-whacking league.
The Comedy Club sticks to the basics: nationally known acts; booze, burgers, fried foods; one microphone; and a brick wall. Renowned standups Jim Norton, Tom Green, Orlando Jones, and the late Patrice O'Neal have all graced the stage, and regularly scheduled Open Mic nights fuel an eternal search for undiscovered talent. The club proves its commitment to local humorists in its annual Funniest Person in Rochester Contest, semester-long classes on standup comedy, and always remembering their birthdays.
Julia and Alex, the parents-of-three who operate The Little Gym in the Rochester location, help children develop athletic skills and self-confidence through programs that incorporate movement, music, and learning exercises. The curriculum emphasizes motivating children to achieve instead of pressuring them to win. As a result, young ones can develop physically, socially, emotionally, and intellectually in a positive, nurturing environment. The Little Gym also was named the number-one chain at which to hold children's birthday parties by Parents magazine.
