Hot on the trail of USHL hockey's greatest honor, the Clark Cup, the Indiana Ice glide into the Eastern Conference Finals chasing their first title since 2009. A round-one sweep of reigning champion Dubuque continued the squad's season-long display of domination, as star forward Daniil Tarasov netted seven points and had the Fighting Saints' defenders folding like tents cursed with below-average poker faces. San Jose Sharks 2011 draft pick Sean Kuraly also rides a hot streak into the conference finals with 12 points in his last eight games, and goalie Jon Gillies protects the team's leads by unfurling one of the USHL's best save percentages in front of the net. During breaks in the glacial action, the Hardee's Chill Girls scorch the ice with scintillating steps as mascot Big E. Foot roams the arena dishing out high-fives and digging out stray cats from his fur.
The friendly and experienced staffers at this full-service day spa perform an array of treatments to transform forlorn figures into flattering frames. Carve a coveted 12-pack into your midsection with a Zerona body-sculpting treatment ($200–$250). During the 40-minute session, a noninvasive laser melts rebellious fat cells loitering under the skin, which then get fully eliminated through the body’s natural detoxification processes. This Groupon is good for one treatment, but six treatments are recommended for optimal results. Opt for two spider-vein treatments to noninvasively banish web-like squiggles and inadvertently offensive words from your surface.
Executive chef Jack Rickey brightens up his dishes at Billy Jack’s Bar and Grill by packing every recipe with crimson tomatoes, yellow sweet corn, and other colorful southwestern ingredients. The fiery flavors of chipotle peppers and chiles stimulate tongues when blended into the poblano-cream sauce poured over sizzling steak and shrimp or the aioli drizzled over sweet and spicy pork medallions. Bold ingredients find their way into seafood dishes as well, from the peaches that sweeten the BBQ roasted salmon to the jalapeno sauce that coats the restaurant's crab-stuffed tilapia and crab-stuffed piñatas.

Martinis Culinary Cocktail Lounge is aptly named—the bar's martini list boasts a roster of cocktails more than 120 drinks long. However, bartenders also pour top-shelf spirits and craft beers to complement their Mediterranean plates, which range from chicken parmesan and tortellini to build-your-own pizzas. The kitchen staff also whips up seafood dishes, such as shrimp stuffed with blue crab and linguine with clams, which evoke Italy’s seaside regions more appetizingly than free glasses of salt water. As patrons drink and dine, the lounge’s weekly shows entertain with comedy sets and live music.
