Coconuts Comedy Club, located in Jack’s Joint since 1998, has been luring in chuckle-seekers for more than two decades with a glittering stage filled with nationally touring comedians. To keep growling stomachs from heckling comedians out of frustration, visitors can mute tummy rumbles with a full menu bursting at the seams with saucy wings, 14-inch hand-tossed pizzas, and brawny steaks.
Conceived by Las Vegas restaurateur Mark DiMartino, Tilted Kilt Pub & Eatery evokes Ireland by way of Vegas, with waitresses dressed in plaid mini kilts shouldering trays of chilled beer and pub fare. Like an enchilada stuffed with four-leaf clovers, the eatery’s Irish nachos interpret a south-of-the-border classic in a Celtic way, slathering potato chips in cheese sauce and seasoned ground beef; alternatively, pot roast and vegetables simmer traditionally in the Olde Dublin Irish stew’s Guinness-infused beef stock. Barkeeps pour a full bar’s worth of wine, cocktails, and beer, which surfaces in bottles, bombers, and multi-brew mixes such as the Blue Moon and Guinness combination. High-definition TVs glow with a ceaseless parade of professional and college baseball, basketball, and hockey, and live bands add to the entertainment smorgasbord on Monday nights.
Amid a downpour of confetti, beams of laser lights, and the pulsing beats of a live DJ, partiers trip the light fantastic on a two-level dance floor at ZO Lounge. Designed as a respite from the daily grind, ZO Lounge couples its nightly music, which ranges from top 40 hits to live local artists, with specialty martinis, cocktails, champagne, and beer poured at two full bars. An adjoining outdoor patio offers fresh air and a more relaxed setting in which to mingle and socialize, though it remains in full range of the entertainment. Every night of the week, ZO Lounge honors a different theme, such as Old School Dance Party Saturdays and Techno Tuesdays, in which DJs spin dubstep and electro-house music while simultaneously fighting robots with their turntable needles.
Green Organix Restaurant, an extension of Peter Gillham’s Nutrition Center, culls from organic ingredients to make up dishes that reflect many cultures and styles, including vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free options.

A recent addition to the menu, the organic salad bar shows off 20 different fixings and local ingredients, along with made-from-scratch salad dressings and freshly plucked salad bowls.
