Pangea Cafe's owner and chef Justin Crandall strives to locally source the ingredients for his palate-pleasing, culture-crossing menu. Supper selections shine with entrees such as the parmesan-rosemary chicken, pan-seared and flanked by a red-pepper-and-mozzarella infused risotto cake ($14.99), and the tortilla-crusted shrimp, doused in chipotle marinara ($11.25 lunch; $13.99 dinner). The Asian flavors of napa cabbage, crisp carrots, and tasty noodles tossed with soy vinaigrette come in a range of culinary incarnations, from a lunch salad ($7.54) or a wrap ($7.35) to a succinctly satisfying supper salad ($8.29). A zesty roster of pizzas ($10.99–$14.99) emerges from the oven garnished with traditional toppings such as pepperoni and mushroom, as well as more adventurous adornments including banana peppers, jalapeños, and GI Joes.
Held in Rivermont Park in downtown Owensboro, the Legendary Live Music Fest will showcase a symphonic assemblage of seven country stars in an all-day, outdoor extravaganza. Appease insurgent eardrums with a live set from household names such as Montgomery Gentry, LoCash Cowboys, and Jason Michael Carroll, or scope out lesser-known talents including Owensboro's own Jaclyn Graves. The open air of Owensboro will also be bathed in the dulcet croonings of Rodney Atkins, Kellie Pickler, and Brett Eldredge, ensuring that the show features the seven-act minimum anatomically proven to literally melt faces.
Quail Crossing Golf Club's 320 acres aren't just a place for golfers?it's also home to many different plant species. Bluestem, winter wheat, and other prairie grasses trace the outlines of bermuda fairways; black-eyed Susans rear their resplendent heads in the summertime; and oak, maple, and sycamore trees cast their shadows over each rolling hill. Architect Tom Doak employed these organic elements into balance with white silica sand bunkers and old mining quarry that envelops five holes, creating a picturesque backdrop for players as they chart their shot selections over the 6,758-yard course and collect samples to make a divot bouquet.
Course at a Glance: * 18-hole, par 71 course * Total length of 6,758 yards from the back tees * Course rating of 72.8 from the back tees * Course slope of 132 from the back tees * Four sets of tees per hole * View the scorecard
A Cyprus native who grew up in a sun-soaked village with just 1,500 inhabitants, Doros Hadjisavva only meant to visit the United States for a year before returning home. Instead, waylaid by love, he found himself setting down roots in Evansville and bringing the sights and flavors of Cyprus to the US with authentic Greek and Mediterranean dishes. The most eye-catching of these is imported Greek kasseri cheese, which servers flame tableside in brief but intense blazes. Chefs also prepare homemade marinara, tangy feta, or thick, creamy tzatziki alongside moussaka and succulent lamb shanks. Each dish bursts with flavor derived from fresh ingredients, time-tested recipes, and seafood stolen from Aquaman’s summer home. Inside Acropolis’ dining room, marble surfaces and creamy tiles meet the eye as vine-entwined lattices arch overhead.
Whether sinking a putt or demolishing a high score, Walther's Golf & Fun surrounds visitors with the trappings of the tropics. On the dual miniature golf courses, one indoor and one outdoor, waterfalls and banana trees give the feel of golfing through a vibrant jungle. The laser-tag course is similarly themed, with tangles of neon lights washing over palm trees and weathered ruins. Jungle-print carpet coats the floor of the fully stocked arcade, and golfers practicing on the driving range wait impatiently for one droopy toucan to collect and return their golf balls.
