Though the staff at The Brass Tap take beer very seriously, they've nevertheless turned drinking it into a game. Customers get a single point for each of the pub's 300 craft beers that they try. At certain milestones, they'll receive gift cards or a t-shirt with a new title, all the way from rookie to beer guru?and, if they conquer the challenge three times, they can win the coveted Repeat Offender 900 shirt.

Thankfully, the bar makes it easy to sort through its 300 beers. The menu is divided up into different beer types, which go deeper than the basic delineation of ale vs. lager vs. water that's been dyed amber. Guests can peruse listings of bottled barleywines and porters, or have a resident beer aficionado fill their mug with an imported brew on draft. Beer even permeates the food: the chipotle mustard on the house-baked pretzels is made with pale ale, just as the cheese dip is made with Samuel Adams. All of the burgers, sandwiches, and pretzel pizzas also have recommended drink pairings.

As for entertainment, each Brass Tap books a variety of local bands throughout the week. Trivia, bingo, and happy hours find regular spots on the schedule, and some locations have outdoor patios and cigars for purchase.

There is an activity for family members of any age at Timeout Family Pub & Grub. While kids try to beat their top scores on the racecar-driving simulator, adults can catch the day's football games on massive projection screens or simply chat with friends as they shoot some pool. But when the food comes, the whole clan gathers back at the restaurant's dining counter. There, they enjoy hearty daily specials such as homemade shepherd's pie, meatloaf with mashed potatoes, and pulled pork sandwiches. Most days, the chefs include at least one seafood option to showcase the area's freshest catch and to appease the ghost in their oven who demands both land and sea tributes.

Though years of working as a trainer for chain restaurants taught Mike Tolley how to cook quality food efficiently, it was the slower, lower-heat cooking that he enjoyed the most. So when he decided to open his own restaurant, Uncle Mike's Smokehouse, he eschewed traditional fast-food preparation in favor of the slow smoking that gives meat a rich, complex favor. He and his chefs grill everything from pork shanks and chicken wings to St. Louis?style barbecue and steaks. They don't just specialize in savory, smoky flavors, however. They also add a sweet note to meals with slices of cornbread, vanilla maple sweet potatoes, and bourbon-laced pecan pie.

Sakura Asian Cuisine seamlessly blends the diverse culinary traditions of China, Thailand, and Japan with an extensive menu of hand-rolled maki, sashimi, hibachi steaks, sizzling chicken, and seafood sautéed in a wok. The elegant, yet casual restaurant treats visitors to sumptuous meals of grilled sea bass, lobster tempura, and soba noodles. Like a finely shredded Impressionist painting, each maki roll is a kaleidoscopic of tiny slivers of color, with deep reds of tuna, pink salmon, green avocado, and orange tobiko.

Turn 2 Sports Restaurant's motto—turn 2 of your friends into 2 of our friends—perfectly sums up its friendly vibe.

Of course, they can also snag a table or a spot on the outdoor patio for a more substantial meal of burgers, sandwiches, and pizzas.
