WestCyde Wings bastes their signature buffalo-style wings in a selection of 21 lip-smacking sauces. Canines first chew on decisions, opting for traditional bone-in or boneless bites, and mouths water mournfully when forced to choose between dipping cups of blue cheese or ranch dressing that accompany every wing platter and glass of water. Spice sensors with a need for heat can coat the crispy pinions in a spicier ensemble, selecting a sauce that is hot, x-hot, blazing hot, or inferno-ally hot, and milder temperaments with a taste for travel can sample sauces such as curry, Cajun, teriyaki, sweet & sour, or Caribbean jerk (one sauce/order; additional sauces $0.59). Eight beers—including brews from Boulevard, Fat Tire, Bud Light, and Miller Light—cascade from the tap at the bar, slaking thirst wrought from the saucy sustenance or while exchanging pleasantries about optometry with the larger-than-life referees projected on the 8-foot TV screen.

3706 Lincoln Way

Wallaby's sports-centric atmosphere lures revelers with big-game broadcasts, daily drink specials, and an upscale pub-grub menu, which has led to a 10-time ranking as the Best Sports Bar in Story County by the Ames Tribune. Under the luminous glow of 34 sports-beaming televisions, kick off a meal with a group of friends or pet footballs by savoring a single order of ISU State Flappers, classic wings served in a choice of sauces including sweet asian chile, buffalo garlic, and inferno ($5.99 for 6 or $10.99 for 12). Open-faced Wallaby burgers use mushroom-and-marsala-wine sauce to incite incisors ($8.49), and the Wally dip's sliced roast beef and cup of creamy au jus provide fuel for choreographed homerun celebrations ($8.79). To quell inland blues, treat taste buds to underwater treasures, such as the grilled Atlantic salmon or the Cajun ahi tuna ($9.99 for each).

3720 Lincoln Way

At Della Viti, the future is essentially unfolding right now. The self-serve wine bar dispenses its vintages via automated Napa Technology WineStations, which pour glasses in a choice of three sizes: a taste, a half-glass, and a full 5-ounce pour. The rotating wines, which range from chardonnays and merlots to less traditional blends, complement an array of craft beers and a full bar.

323 Main St

Celebrating their 25th anniversary, Boston Brass enthralls audiences with stylized performances of eclectic musical arrangements.

Cedar Falls,

Inside the historic, renovated Waverly Palace Theatre, first-run releases splash across three screens as guests gobble snacks from the concession stand. Seats equipped with lumbar support prop up weary backs as the sounds of screeching tires, exploding fortresses, and wisecracking babies escape from the speakers of a Dolby Surround Sound EX system. As guests exit, they can take in the brick exterior of the theater, which maintains its classic, glowing marquee and art-deco façade.

90 E Bremer Ave

During galaxy bowling, Cadillac Lanes turns futuristic with the help of a space-age-evoking light and sound show. Even under the glow of traditional lighting, the alley brims with modern technology, such as automatic scoring and retractable bumpers. A trove of lightweight to heavy bowling balls allows players of all muscle masses to scatter pins without straining their muscles. In between 10-frame games, patrons can maneuver joysticks in the arcade or refuel at the snack bar. The venue also welcomes birthday celebrations with party packages complete with decorations that create a joyful atmosphere, rather than celebrating with impromptu bowling-ball confetti.:m]]
