Though the Mojave Desert surrounds Las Vegas with its lone and level sands, the SoBe Ice Arena is a cool oasis of equally flat ice. The NHL-regulation rink, 31,000 square feet in area, hosts groups of skaters during open sessions. Hockey players practice their checks and slapshots on the ice, spurred on by a massive American flag and the threat of being sent to the penalty box for not knowing all 50 state capitals. On weekend nights, live DJs and karaoke set the scene for rhythmic skating sessions.

The Charcoal Room features top-grade cuts of meat, an extensive wine list, and fresh fish daily. The atmosphere is equal parts fine-dining class and low-key relaxation, like a news anchor whose desk is concealing a pair of sateen parachute pants. Peruse the menu to discover substantial steaks such as the pan-seared bone-in rib eye (22 oz., $32) and petite cuts such as the filet mignon (7 oz., $28). Classic salad styles such as the wedge ($7) or Caesar ($7) are perennially in good taste, complementing meat with the finest of chlorophyll. The boneless baby-back ribs ($10) and lobster mac 'n' cheese ($14) turn the traditionally difficult-to-eat into forkable fare. Since swords themselves always return from the grill too hot to eat, swordfish ($32) makes for a blade-inspired meal not forged by a sweaty blacksmith. Collect a cartel of iron-eaters who prefer their steak prepared on top of more steak and request a corner booth facing the door at The Charcoal Room.
