A sea-centric oasis in the heart of the desert, Texas Star Oyster Bar serves up a tongue-tantalizing menu of fresh fish dishes and stiff signature cocktails inspired by taste traditions stretching from the Bayou to the Gulf. Begin your culinary quest with a Texas mai tai, Malibu rum and a hint of Southern Comfort mingling with orange and pineapple juice in a geometrically challenged 10-gallon hat ($7.50). Next, slurp down a half dozen fresh oysters on the half shell ($11), or throw back an edible shooter such as the tequila madness, an oyster lounging with Sauza tequila, spicy tomato juice, and fresh lime in a shot glass ($4). Entrees include hearty classics such as New Orleans gumbo ($18), as well as lighter options including the mediterranean salmon sautéed with olive oil, white wine, tomato, capers, and basil ($16).

CALA Academy is a language school committed to expanding intercultural communication by means of interactive language-learning techniques for individuals, businesses, and speech-empowered donkeys. Unlike computer software and other language-learning methods, CALA’s face-to-face approach provides relevant topics, conversational classes, and instructor feedback for highly effective tongue untwisting. Instructors are experienced, patient, and either native speakers of the language they teach or have achieved a native speaking level through ritualistic séances. In a small class setting, budding multi-linguists can hone their English, Spanish, French, or Italian skills with four two-hour classes. Although CALA’s main focus is on developing speaking proficiency, classes also teach listening, reading, and writing skills.
Sylvan Learning's Las Vegas-area locations understand that each child learns differently. Therefore, they don't try to implement a uniform tutoring system; instead, they design individualized programs based on an initial diagnostic assessment and the student's individual needs.
Tutors work with students from kindergarten through grade 12, with topics ranging from basic reading and writing to complex algebraic formulas. Sylvan's certified instructors are experienced so they understand how to gear lessons toward optimal results.
The NRA-certified instructors at Southern Nevada Fire Arms Training believe that gun owners should always be improving their skills regardless of whether they're complete novices or seasoned pros. That's why the instructors—some of whom boast past experience as law-enforcement officers, military personnel, or video-game characters—work one-on-one with shooters during training sessions that cater to each shooter's skill set and pace. In addition to this personalized instruction, they also teach immersive, all-day courses that prepare participants to apply for concealed-carry permits.
All of their courses take place at Guns and Ammo Garage, where shooters can hone their skills across 12 shooting lanes.
