With 40 different ales and lagers on tap, Willard's is a craft-beer haven for brewthusiasts and amateur appreciators alike. A giant chalkboard that spans the length of the bar displays the expansive menu of pourable pleasures and includes information about each beer's alcohol content. Kick off the summer with a smooth glass of Bell's Oberon—wheat ale with a spicy hop character and a mild fruity aroma ($4.50), or savor the flavor of organically grown hops with a classic pale ale such as Peak Organic's Simcoe Spring ale ($6.00). Major labels, including Lagunitas and Cigar City provide patrons with reliable standbys, and a diverse selection of beers, ciders, and stouts take adventurous taste buds on a flavor rollercoaster. The average price per pour runs between $4 and $7, and on certain nights brews can be downed to the beat of live music.

Children of all ages clamber through brightly colored inflatables and engage in energy-absorbing activities in an expansive indoor play area at Gator Fred’s Fun & Party Center. Releasing pent-up activity, children run rampant inside the gigantic inflatables, bouncing on brilliant reds and blues and careening through jungle gyms composed of lead-free vinyl. Youths descend onto Gator Town, a miniature bustling city, valiantly protecting the town in the fire station, nursing furry friends back to health at the animal hospital, and enacting mock plays and six-hour renditions of Hamlet on the theater's stage.
Girls Night: The Musical will bring to the stage of the 14th Street Theatre a heartfelt, comedic story of five friends celebrating their history and future together while embarking on an epic night of karaoke.

Theater seating harkens back to intimate cabarets of yore, with up to four seats and a Dean Martin wax figure adorning each table. Groupon holders receive the best non-VIP seats possible (any table other than tables A-G) upon the redemption of their vouchers at the theater's will-call station.
SPROING. That's the sound of a guest getting air in one of AirHeads' trampoline arenas, whose bouncy walls and floors let visitors break free of gravity for a few blissful seconds. Guests can ricochet off springy surfaces during fast-paced games of dodge ball and volleyball, simply fly into the air for the fun of it, or train for a bouncy future when all surfaces will be made out of recycled rubber. After each bounce session, they can cool off with video games in the AirCade or refuel at a caf? that serves pizza, wraps, and salad. Each location also hosts group events and bounce-centric birthday parties, as well as fitness classes whose low-impact aerobic moves can burn up to 1,000 calories an hour.
