Walk into any of BreWingZ Sports Bar and Grill's 19 locations, and you'll be faced with many decisions. First, of course, is the food: the sports bar's crisp, juicy wings come in more than 25 different sauce flavors from classic suicidal hot to orange ginger. The mozzarella cheese sticks are carved from a cheese brick, breaded, and fried to order. And then there are the salads, sandwiches, burgers, and wraps. The family-friendly restaurant even gives kids an extensive selection with six child-friendly dishes, some of which include the same signature items their parents enjoy. But once you've ordered your food, there are a few more dilemmas: Which of the plentiful beers do you choose? Which game on the many massive HD televisions do you watch? Which one is the fork, again? Luckily, the spot's easygoing atmosphere and bounty of entertainment doesn't quite necessitate speedy decision making.

Creative team TJ and Merlina Porter, both Clear Lake natives, joined forces with JeMarr Rivers to open a bar and lounge that offered an upscale, sophisticated nightlife scene. As of December 2011, JeMarr has trekked on as the sole owner while still maintaining the luxe atmosphere that draws crowds for nightly dancing and partying. An expansive interior paves the way for individuals or large parties, with a full reservation and VIP area for nights on the town or special occasions. The full bar slings beer, liquor, frequent specials, and 13 flavors of daiquiris, many of which are made with Everclear so that they can be used as a torch in the event of a power outage. During the week, live entertainment including jazz bands, standup comedy, and poetry readings fill the soundscape, and DJs spin tunes almost every night. Cultivating a truly carefree yet mature atmosphere, Daiqui-Ritas often hands out complimentary door prizes, which patrons can enjoy as they watch any of the lounge's five big screen TVs.
Across nearly three-fourths of the United States, AMF Bowling Co. reverberates year-round as families, friends, and competitors send bowling balls in search of upright pins careening down slick lanes. The company first established itself as an industry leader in 1946, the same year the sport introduced automated pinspotters.
Today, more than 20 million bowlers annually make AMF their battleground for wars against pins. As the largest owner and and operator of bowling centers in the US, AMF locations offer high-tech scoring technology, a classic design, and a menu stocked with American-inspired classics such as wings, pizzas, burgers, and beer.
Pho Hoang Vietnamese Restaurant prepares fresh, delicious Vietnamese dishes. Start off with an order of pork spring rolls or shrimp and crawfish toast before moving onto entrees such as spicy plum pork of broiled basa catfish. House favorites include rock-n-roll beef—tender sirloin stir-fried and tossed in garlic sauce—and the crispy fried chicken, which comes with a chili garlic dipping sauce.
Part family-style restaurant, part sports bar, part music venue?Jackie's Brickhouse aims to be all things to all people by creating an environment where guests can enjoy anything from a quick bite to a spirited night out with friends. This welcoming spirit is readily apparent throughout the menu of classic comfort foods, which features eight-ounce Angus burgers and country fried chicken with cream gravy alongside hand-tossed, thin-crust pizzas. The chefs also seek out fresh crawfish whenever they become available and they demonstrate a willingness to get creative by cooking upscale items such as the bourbon-glazed Alaskan salmon topped with poached pear. With its large collection of picnic tables and high-top wooden tables, the spacious main dining area features more than enough places to settle in and indulge in one of the hearty entr?es.
A fleet of 25 plasma televisions adorn the walls, although the sounds of sports fade away whenever Jackie's Brickhouse hosts live musical performances. These performances are regularly scheduled throughout the week and never include a cover charge, encouraging visitors to hang around and tap their toes to the melodies or dance to the warm-up scales. Jackie's Brickhouse also features a separate game room stuffed with pool tables, dartboards, shuffleboard tables, and arcade games for anyone looking to unwind over a quick face-off.
Lauded for its “timeless” feel by Houston Press, Chelsea Wine Bar’s creative menu of old-fashioned comfort food pairs perfectly with the restaurant’s weekly live music offerings and waterfront views. Satisfy sandwich-size cravings with the roast-turkey panini, topped with swiss cheese and basil pesto ($6.50), or the brie, tomato, and spinach panini ($6.50). Herbivores and dairy enthusiasts can skip carnivorous options and munch on the cheese flatbread pizza ($5), baked goat-cheese platter ($10), or warm brie plate ($10.50). Dessert-deigning diners can reminisce on childhoods spent roasting marshmallows over the warm glow of the television with the chocolate-mallow conglomeration of Susie’s s’mores ($6.50), which is complemented by a wide selection of gourmet coffee beverages from delectable white mochas ($3.50) to potent double espressos ($2.75).
