Pinot's Palette combines wine and art to create an enjoyable night out with friends or a date. The painting sessions encourage adults' inner artists whether they have any painting experience or not, encouraging light-hearted conversation, fun, and good cheer while painting and sipping BYOB beverages. Each session's painting of the night may feature anything from landscapes and wine-inspired art to known classics such as Van Gogh's Starry Night, and each painter tackles from their own artistic angle under the guidance of an experienced instructor. At the end of the night, painters can take their painting home with them.

Tiger-Rock Martial Arts International is one of the largest franchises of its kind. The Lafayette branch takes full advantage of the academy's far-reaching influence to draw a team of experienced instructors who haven't seen a cinder block they couldn't chop in two. Describing the scope of the academy's courses is as futile a task as going toe-to-toe with one of these instructors, but the options range from casual fitness classes to tutorials in handling martial weapons.
