Inside Siggy’s Pizza & Pub, one might never feel alone. The rustic eatery is populated by not only a lively staff and buzzing crowd, but also a moose, 12-point buck, and cougar. Situated throughout the bar and restaurant, a variety of prized finds are mounted and posed—including an enormous brown bear who holds his arms outward in a never-ending plea for hugs. The wooden bar grows colorful with plates of beer-friendly eats, including wings and pizzas littered with toppings such as green peppers, sausage, and fresh mozzarella.

At Local's Sports Bar & Grill, the food options are numerous and appealing, but it might be the party room that's most appetizing. In that private space, guests who reserve it can lounge back in leather recliners and watch one of five flat-screen TVs. They can even enjoy it catered, as servers can tote in plates of New York strip steak or shallot-encrusted salmon, quite exquisite options at a bar scene. Local ingredients make up a significant amount of the restaurant's culinary roster, and when they're not busy making burgers, the staff celebrates sports by airing NFL Sunday Ticket, ESPN Full Court, and MLB Extra Innings.

J.D. Legends nourishes entertainment-hungry families with a massive facility stocked with bowling, a restaurant offering Southern-style fare, a bar, and an arcade. The 24-lane bowling alley features a new-and-improved scoring system to better capture lane-skipping curveballs and light-speed strikes. During open-play hours, shoes gently cradle the feet of their temporary masters as lanes brace themselves for the hurtling of bowling balls down their slender midsections. The lanes frequently host themed parties and events, including cosmic bowling every Friday and Saturday night.

The facility?s art-deco carpeting and citrus-colored decorations invigorate bowlers with game-enhancing visions of early 20th-century French heydays and afternoons spent lazing about under yellowed skies.

The neon glow of televisions and beer signs makes up most of the light inside Hoopsters Sports Bar & Grill. The space has sheltered diners from the light of day since 1994, keeping the bar dimmed to movie-theater levels to help diners enjoy the technicolor action of their favorite sports teams. When televised competition fails to entertain, the staff instead augments their selection of burgers and sandwiches with Tuesday-night trivia contests, Friday-night karaoke, and Saturday-night DJ-driven dance parties. Sunday even has a special designation as the staff flips over all channels to view NASCAR contests and speaks only in motor sounds.

Throughout history, some have used flags to stake their claim on a corner of the world. Others have drawn lines on maps. But it’s pizza that firmly marks the territory of Kenna’s Korner, where cooks hand toss their dough before colonizing it with dozens of fresh toppings. Served with ranch dressing on the side, the Kenna’s Special combines buffalo-wing meat with bacon, mushrooms, jalapeños, and onions, slathering the assortment in special sauce and two kinds of cheeses. Kenna’s rounds out its menu with salads and a selection of sub sandwiches, each nestled within an 8-inch hoagie roll and filled with everything from double hamburger patties to beef and sausage swimming in pizza sauce.

At the age of 7, Cheryl discovered a passion for serving her parents, grandparents, and their friends during get-togethers. So it was no surprise when she worked her way up the food-industry chain until she hit the top, opening Gypsy's Sports Grille with her husband Tracy. The couple?s restaurant is named after their four-legged child, a rescued boston terrier that came to them with the name Miss Gypsy. Popular items on the menu?denoted with a picture of Miss Gypsy?include a fried-pork-tenderloin sandwich flavored with house seasoning, and grilled chicken breast slathered with a housemade Old Forester?bourbon glaze. The restaurant also pays homage to the beloved pup by supporting no-kill animal shelters and boston-terrier rescues in the hopes of saving dogs in need and encouraging them to franchise their own restaurants.
