Close-quarters combat, a woodland battle, or an urban-village scuffle. At Battlefield Airsoft, you might find yourself face-to-face with enemies on any of these inventive terrain options. During games, players fire soft plastic BBs to tag enemy opposition. It's similar to paintball, except it's less messy and doesn't require you to hold a BFA in abstract art to play. Players can engage scrimmages with their own gear or rent or buy airsoft equipment at the onsite shop.

For more than 70 years, jewels used to fill the African mahogany cases lining Sapphire's walls. The dark wooden cabinets remain, although they now brim with more than 40 kinds of vodka, Tennessee and Kentucky whiskeys, and rums from Central and South America. Sapphire may no longer drape its customers in precious gemstones, but it does aim to preserve the sense of elegant refinement that characterized the historic building for decades.

This commitment is readily apparent in the menu of upscale southern cuisine, which includes Tennessee cheeses from Sweetwater Farms, bacon and ham from nearby Benton's, and seasonal produce from local farms. These ingredients appear throughout the selection of regionally inspired dishes. Some dishes, such as the Louisiana-crawfish-stuffed hushpuppies with cajun remoulade, assertively announce their southern roots, whereas others show a bit more restraint, such as beef-tenderloin medallions, which arrive with a simple southern succotash.

On Thursday through Saturday evenings, the elegant environment in the long, narrow room becomes livelier as the night progresses and DJs begin their sets. Upbeat rhythms echo off the high ceilings and the vintage mahogany woodwork while patrons enjoy one of the martinis that earned Sapphire a spot on Metro Pulse's Best of Knoxville 2012 list.

Kids bounce inside a truck, giggling and showing no signs of settling down. At Bounce USA, youthful antics aren't suppressed. Instead kids are encouraged to burn off extra energy and nurture their imaginations. Ten inflatables, such as the truck or a basketball court, house tunnels, slides, and air-filled obstacle courses. Kids aged 2 and younger even have a giant inflatable all to themselves, replete with a ball pit and oversized blown-up blocks. To get the most out of the facility, parents can choose from four party packages, which include an attendant to serve cake and pour soft drinks as well as organize games of inflatable Twister, Pin the Tail on the Donkey, and Pin the Apology Letter on the Donkey's Front Door.

Larry Schmittou, a renowned minor-league coach, executive, and overall baseball legend, traded diamonds for lanes to become president and co-owner of Strike & Spare Family Entertainment. Bowlers, gamers, and bar-goers can convene at locations across four states, each booming with the thundering sound of balls clashing against pins and confused children tap-dancing down the alley. The center is open 365 days per year, with lights and music enticing adults into the bar for a drink or snack, all while the arcade’s bells and whistles distract young ones until the lanes close. A bowling-rewards card incentivizes trips to the alley with credits for future purchases.

Back Door Tavern accompanies bottles and mugs of beer with games and free hot dogs. As guests busily imbibe, sports take to the TV screens throughout the bar, foosball tables dream about being full-size soccer fields, and darts fly through the air in search of a defenseless dartboard. Outside, horseshoes look for chances to clank against a stake. Back Door Tavern also hosts special events such as holiday parties and trivia nights, as well as private celebrations of weddings or escrow.
