All year round, Nelson Field Laser Tag's battle zones join forces to send warriors into simulated combat. A field peppered with camo forts and towers at the Green Bay location scintillates during winter months as groups of up to 16 players use the scopes on heavy-duty, military-grade laser guns to pick off opponents and point out mustard stains on a teammate's pants. Meanwhile, unfolding across outdoor combat arenas, paintball and airsoft squads dip, dash, and dive behind natural and manmade barriers. Seven woodball fields camouflage matches amid troves of trees, and on an urban combat field, shooters utilize 19 buildings and one rogue hot-dog cart as shelter. Upon striking a truce, friends can reconvene at Nelson Field's onsite sports bars.

Though Nelson Field Laser Tag sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.

Karaoke tends to be a special event at many bars, but not at The Bluff Pub and Grille. Here karaoke is welcome any time a patron feels like crooning aloud a favorite song or a business rival?s credit card number on the restaurant?s TouchTunes machine. Professional musicians, meanwhile, often stop by in the summer to rock out on The Bluff?s deck, nestled beside stunning views of the bay. The culinary team takes full advantage of its water view location with plenty of tasty seafood options, including omelets filled with shrimp, crab, and house-made garlic-chive cream sauce. For dinner, chefs whip up everything from broasted chicken with house-made stuffing to handmade pizzas crowned with fixings such as jalape?os and sauerkraut.

Like many of Fox's lavish movie palaces, the Meyer opened in the 1930s, only to see its Spanish Atmospheric touches fade over the years as it became a modern triplex cinema. But once it was converted to its current incarnation as a live performing arts venue, the staff worked hard to restore its opulence, from the midnight-blue sky with twinkling stars to columns decorated with gold leaves. The theater's crown jewel, however, is the Mighty Wurlitzer organ, which was refurbished using the original 1927 blueprint. With its pipes ranging from the size of a pencil to 16 feet, the instrument boasts a range of tones and cinematic sound effects, such as horse hooves, chattering teeth, and David O. Russell roaring at his actors.

The seasoned chefs at Broadway Lounge and Grill dish up a palate-pleasing menu of savory sandwiches, juicy burgers, and fresh fish to complement the establishment's fully stocked bar.

Lightly floured and fried until crispy crooners serenade a soft, tender inside, the pan-fried walleye filet comes with a side salad or cup of soup and a choice of potato, including baked, mashed, garlic mashed, fries, sweet potato fries, or wild rice ($13.95).

Housed in a complex of four different bars, Time Out scores points with game-day appetites with its hefty playbook of burgers, brews, wraps, wings, and more. Start meals off with a baked plate of potato skins filled with bacon and melted cheese ($5.25) or some pure Wisconsin white-cheddar cheese curds ($4.25). Hands free from inarticulate and accusatory foam fingers work their way through hills of chicken wings in portions of 12, 20, or 50 ($4.95–$14.95), coated in one of seven sauces ranging from money mustard to hot to psychically charged medium varieties. Burger-minded diners find pattyborne paradise in the Vince Lombardi melt, a pair of third-pound burgers stacked with slices of swiss and american cheese under a layer of fried onions on grilled rye ($7.95). Finish off the workweek with Time Out's Friday fish fry, in which platters of perch ($7.95) and shrimp ($7.95) provide a flaky, battered complement to a cold brew and springtime reruns of championship performances.
