Though it’s been open for the past 90 or so years, Scoreboard has seen few changes beyond its name. Once known as Schweda’s Barbecue, the Lake Zurich bar and grill is still owned and operated by the same family, and present proprietor Joe Schweda has maintained much of the eatery’s original charm, including its quaint, white-washed building situated near the lake on Old Rand Road. The grill does its part to maintain a neighborhood feel, acquiring all of its meats from Orchard Prime Meats, conveniently located next door for the past 20 years. While watching a game, patrons can wash down juicy half-pound burgers, thin-crust pizzas, or one of a dozen types of sandwiches with a frothy Budweiser, Guinness, or 312 draft.

Aside from supplying eats and drinks, the Scoreboard staff also reaps karma points by hosting philanthropic events such as “Golfing for the Cure,” and by always letting women and children onto lifeboats first.

At any one of the centers, a workout can begin with heart-healthy cardio training to satisfy people’s innate desire to punch and kick something other than a broken jukebox. Over the course of many workouts, participants build lithe, strong muscle tissue by delivering powerful blows to punching bags. They work toward flexibility and agility by practicing roundhouse kicks and hooks. Students can also improve their core strength and endurance with medicine balls and burpees, enlist a qualified personal trainer to practice their newfound skills in the ring, or just torch calories during intense full-body Power Hour workouts.

Inside Gianni’s Cafe, guests can don chef caps and create their own dish. They start the culinary adventure with a selection of nine pastas, and build their creation with the addition of one of 14 sauces such as spicy arrabiata with crushed red peppers. Finally, they top off their creations with their choice from a slew of ingredients, including peas, crabmeat, and ricotta cheese. Diners who’d rather let the house chefs take the wheel, dinner-wise, can dine on delicious recipes including chicken marsala, baked shrimp, and eggplant parmigiana. No matte which path they choose, diners enjoy their meals on the restaurant’s linen-topped tables while tucked away in horseshoe-shaped booths. The faux-marble walls and ceiling along with statues of muscled men evoke an Italian air that befits the dishes’ Italian roots.
