Arthur Murray has been a leading name in franchise dance since 1912, when the entrepreneur began selling mail-order dance lessons. Expanding his reach, he enlisted teachers to spread his signature dance lessons on first-class steamships and skyrocketed to fame in the '30s after introducing the public to such dances as the Lambeth Walk and The Big Apple. By the 1950s, Arthur and his wife, Kathryn, were hosting their own highly popular TV show on ABC, The Arthur Murray Dance Party, which ran for 12 years. Today, Arthur Murray's team prepares students for rug cutting at special events and weekend nightclub jaunts. Throughout lessons, instructors teach the foundations of two to four dances from a long list of styles that range from Latin to country-western, helping students to learn basic step patterns, timing, and the ability to lead or follow.

The intimately sized Gold Room seats audiences at private tables to giggle and grin at the quips of a huge variety of comedians during two-hour shows that feature a lineup of three standups. In October, the Friday-night shows highlight the wild improvisational style of Bob Seibel and the edgy humor of Dave Rattigan, whose wit is dryer than a martini mixed in Death Valley. Between guffaws, duos and quartets can enjoy bites from steaming plates of appetizers stageside, selecting from such perennial favorites as spinach and artichoke dip, nachos with chili, and chicken wings spiced with hot, mild, barbecue, thai, or teriyaki sauce.

KISS, the venerable, salaciously theatrical rock 'n' roll sensation, goads eager audiences into palpable hysteria with its Hottest Show on Earth tour. During its renowned live performances, the phantom-slaying foursome brings head-banging fantasies to life with a flamboyant mix of high-wire pyrotechnics, fist-pumping anthems, bulletproof leather, and gently exfoliating face paint. Tame audience members transform into inspired revelers as Paul Stanley and the Pulitzer Prize–winning Gene Simmons croon and shred through the litany of chart-toppers that made the KISS crew household action figures. Orally discharging a catalog of new and seasoned classics, such as "Detroit Rock City" and "Lick it Up," KISS's syllabus of educational sing-alongs entertain listeners with a heavy dose of heart-pumping guitar riffs and sly lyrical innuendo about table manners.

The ping of sharp line drives and towering drives echo over the grounds at Legends Golf, where athletes of all ages compete in rounds of miniature golf and hone swings in the batting cages or at the driving range.

Golf balls trickle down topsy-turvy tracks at the 18-hole miniature-golf course, which weaves through rock faces and tiny geysers that erupt with glee any time a player misses an easy putt. Eight target greens populate the 300-yard driving range, where new Wilson Staff Range Balls touch down after taking flight from 45 synthetic mats or 35 grass tees.

Under the vaulted roof of the batting cages, nine pitching machines send baseballs and softballs speeding toward hitters as they get the most out of every at bat and discreetly argue balls and strikes with imaginary umpires. To pass the time in between mini-golf rounds or during kids' golf lessons, guests can use Legends' wireless Internet connection free of charge.

Using fresh, locally sourced ingredients, Chef Patrick Ogle crafts a menu of updated American favorites that pair perfectly with World Sports Grille's expansive selection of craft beers, bourbons, whiskies, and single-malt scotches. Burgers start with certified Angus beef, turkey, or chicken breast meat, and can be further customized with the diner's choice of toppings. Other examples of elevated pub fare include a Guinness-braised bratwurst, maple-glazed scallops, and rustic pizzas.

Even diners who aren't hungry can find fun at Worlds Sports Grille, however. The venue broadcasts professional sports games on numerous HD televisions, and fifteen billiards tables invite guests to show off their own competitive skills. A dart room, a shuffleboard area, and occasional live music will also keep the recently revamped space pulsing with energy, much like a snake with his tail caught in an electrical outlet.

An art gallery meets café meets bar meets classroom. That’s Muse Paintbar in a nutshell. During canvas-painting sessions, friends gather to bond and get acquainted with others as the staff mans the stocked bar, pouring glasses of inspirational wine and beer. While fledgling Picassos sip, relax, and nibble on snacks, a trained artist leads them through an easy-to-follow assignment, offering personal assistance and words of encouragement throughout the class. After they add the final flourishes to their masterpieces, guests proudly take their finished works home to hang over the mantel or the face of their least favorite family member. Muse Paintbar also hosts themed nights, including couples night, and it can be reserved for private parties and kids’ events.
