Burnside Game Place entertains thrill seekers with a full-fledged casino, complimentary beverages, and affordable American eats. Gamers gunning to strike gold try their hand at the casino's video-bingo machines, which notoriously killed antiquated radio-bingo machines, while gulping free beer and soda in the casino area. After a hearty helping of gaming excitement, patrons refuel with favorites from Burnside's kitchen menu. Nosh on one of the savory appetizers, simultaneously juggling cheese balls or tossing onion rings onto waiting tongues. Chefs perfect the circular simplicity of the personal pan pizza and salute the classic pairing of bacon cheeseburgers and fries. Breaded shrimp and chicken-salad sandwiches round out the menu, leaving its edges smooth and unable to puncture low-flying blimps.

Located in 19 cities nationwide, Wine and Canvas commissions accomplished artists to spread the joy of painting during informal painting classes that pair a featured painting with specialty cocktails and wines available for purchase. The mobile studio’s monthly calendar includes themed classes in which instructors expound on the nuances of painting Parisian street lamps, Japanese flowers, or Venetian cityscapes. The master painters—many of them local artists—provide step-by-step instructions while students mimic each stroke and periodically dip their brushes into glasses filled with crimson cabernet. Each of the studio’s various drink-friendly venues boasts a specialty libation selected to incite creativity or conversations with fellow painters. When the artistic frenzy concludes, students return home with a finished masterpiece large enough to conceal any wall safe or mirror portal.

Brandon Golf Course incorporates the naturally curved path of the Big Sioux River along tree-lined fairways and tight, water-laden lies. Players must factor the river and three large lakes into their shot selections on 11 of 18 holes as they drive, chip, and golf-cart joust their way through the course.

Elevated by a ridge above the surrounding terrain, the clubhouse and its sprawling back patio offer sweeping glimpses of the course as it rolls out toward the horizon, a perfect spot to enjoy to pre-round breakfast, post-round drinks, or mid-round arguments about the earth’s flatness at the Fairway View Lounge.

Course at a Glance:

  • 18-hole, par 71 course
  • Total length of 6,332 yards from the back tees
  • Course rating of 70.1 from the back tees
  • Course slope of 110 from the back tees
  • Three sets of tees per hole

Rocky Run Golf Course takes its name from Rocky Run Creek, the intersecting waterway that enters play on 14 of 18 holes—and more than once on several of the tracks. Golfers become well acquainted with the creek's trickery by time they reach the signature 16th hole, but even then they may fall prey to its deceptive path. The creek intersects play four times on the long par 5—once just below the tee box, twice in the fairway, and once just before the elevated green—making the safest play to skip across a series of lily pads. Golf balls won't be free of the drink until finding the hole on the 18th, allowing golfers to enjoy their own drink at Norby's Bar and Grille and finally coming to grips with flashbacks triggered by running bathwater.
