This family-helmed pub is a hub for on-tap brews and hearty, authentic Irish fare. Customers can start with a heap of spicy popcorn chicken ($4.99) to warm up rusty jawbones and out-of-shape tooth muscles, and then select a packed sandwich, such as the super Reuben ($8.99), to accompany hands during extended bicep curls. Largely leafy meals, including the greek salad ($6.99–$7.99), help famished plantavores avoid ruining wedding photos by eating their way through public gardens. In addition to solid sustenance, the pub features 17 varied draught brews, all equally suitable for cleansing the tip of a quill pen. A pool table and dart boards adorn Irish Pub and Grill's vivacious game room, whose presence is key to preventing illegal gambling rings from breaking out among adjacent dining parties. Additionally, the eatery’s friendly, casual atmosphere makes it an ideal spot for practicing NFL commentary and kazooing along to weekly live music.
Koru, the Maori word from which Koru Therapeutic Massage takes its name, describes a spiral shape that signifies rebirth and growth– concepts that certified medical massage therapist Meghan Caterino understands well. After suffering from paralysis-inducing Guillain-Barre syndrome since childhood, she made an almost-full recovery thanks to a combination of physical therapy, massage, and acupuncture. The experience spurred her on a path to help others heal through massage.
Her nimble hands use all-natural products when working to reduce tension and stress during relaxation and therapeutic massage sessions, during which she helps the body recover after injury, inactivity, or napping with a pet boa constrictor. Meghan has special certification in the Arvigo Techniques of Maya abdominal massage, which she claims helped her conceive her second child without conventional fertility treatments. The focused strokes of this therapy aim to shift internal organs back into position–restoring emotional and physical wellbeing, easing digestive issues, and aiding the reproductive system for both men and women.

The chefs at Michael's don't claim to make healthy food. Instead, their hearty dishes are intended to stick to your stomach and help soak up the bar's vast range of beers, whiskeys, and premium vodkas, whose bottles glow in the violet neon of the bar. Onion rings are battered in beer, cheese is mixed into the tater tots, and pretzel bites pair with beer-cheese dip. After hand-forming third-pound Angus beef burgers, the kitchen piles on eclectic ingredients such as fried mac 'n' cheese, hickory-smoked bacon, and jalapeños. Live music from an in-house stage compels patrons to dance, much like ending every sentence with "Now do-si-do."
The BBQ masters at Meat Southern BBQ & Carnivore Cuisine understand that as different kinds of wood heat up, they create aromatic smoke that adds rich flavor while also tenderizing slabs of meat. To ensure the most robust flavors, they hand pick cuts of brisket, ribs, pork, and more and slow cook them in their smoker for up to 18 hours. The result is an eclectic menu filled with classic barbecue recipes paired with scratch-made sauces and down-home sides such as spicy cream corn, mac-n-cheese, bacon & blue cheese potato salad, and BBQ pit beans.
The menu at Westgate Tavern launches armadas of scents from individually sculpted burger patties and hand-tossed pizzas. Flat-screen televisions glow overhead as diners start their engines with Wisconsin mozzarella melting over handmade deep-dish breadsticks ($6.99) before tearing around the golden-baked corners of a barbecue-chicken pie loaded with pineapple ($9.99+). Bleu cheese and bacon tango atop a burger escorted by fries curlier than Shirley Temple’s handwriting ($7.99). Billiards balls clink on an expanse of green felt as players fuel their aim with a deluxe Italian sub’s folds of ham, salami, capicola, and provolone ($7.99). A cheeseburger pizza ($8.99+), meanwhile, draws on hybrid flavor like a centaur's recipe for sweet and sour sauce.
