Nightlife in Machesney Park

It’s difficult to describe a typical trip to 3 Sheets Pub; on any given night, visitors might find themselves locked in a game of darts, dancing to a DJ’s selections, or just hanging out with a guy in a cheese hat. Pitchers of domestic and craft beer flow freely, along with hearty sandwiches and finger foods. Flat-screen televisions encircle the room where the bar quenches thirst, and a red, neon haze filters through various liquor bottles. 3 Sheets Pub also looks after its patrons by offering a free shuttle service that spirits guests home on Friday and Saturday evenings.

Mary Lee's encouraging pop-and-lock experts instill the passion of rhythm and dance in students ages 5 to adult through weekly hip-hop classes. Each 45-minute lesson begins with warm-up exercises that stretch out limbs to prevent participants from pulling muscles. Dancing protégés then take to the floor and glean tips on performing modern hip-hop maneuvers such as the glide, the harlem shake, and the properly grounded electric slide. Students must come appropriately dressed in clean sneakers—no street shoes—and comfortable dance clothes devoid of zippers and buckles. Class times vary depending on the dancer's age, so check Mary Lee's class schedule to find the most convenient class.

Perry Rock Pub's menu tweaks classic dishes and subdues hunger pangs late into the night with hearty sandwiches, meat platters, and specialty pizzas.

Cast out of its native country for public intoxication, the Drunk Cuban jovially piles plates with spiced-rum pulled pork ($8.99), and caramelized onion aioli adds extra gooey goodness to a shaved rib-eye cheesesteak sandwich ($10.99).
