While bowlers have become accustomed to playing under fluorescent lighting and perching on vinyl seats, Jillian's updates the experience with a nightclub atmosphere and modern decor. Each lane in the black-light bowling lounge holds up to eight people in a luminous glow that?s harmless to the eyes of baby bats. Between bowling frames, three Brunswick Black Stallion billiard tables engage those with the urge for further friendly competition. Alternately, patrons can turn to the game room where they can get their adrenaline racing. Players sate between-set hunger pangs with the dining room's menu of American eats such as hot wings, burgers, and pizzas.

In 1954, Marilyn Monroe married Joe DiMaggio, Bill Haley & His Comets recorded "Rock Around the Clock," and Harvest Moon Twin Drive-In Movie Theatre screened its first film. Over the next decades, it survived the skyrocketing popularity of cable television and even a tornado, but eventually closed in the 1980s. The projectors weren't powered down for long?in 1989, Mike Harroun saw an opportunity to create a place that combined the nostalgic vibe of a 1950s drive-in with the technology of a modern cinema.

These days, sunset is the cue for ultra high-definition digital projectors to whir to life and FM stereo transmitters to broadcast digital 5.1 surround sound into visitors' vehicles. The two screens change their feature films throughout the season, ensuring that crowds can catch first-run summer blockbusters before the explosions become covered with brown spots. Guests may bring their own food for a small fee, or order from a menu featuring piping-hot popcorn, giant dill pickles, and third-pound Black Angus burgers straight from the grill. That combination of old-fashioned entertainment and new-fangled equipment has won the theater plenty of press, including a spot on USA Today's list of the country's 10 best drive-ins.

It's great to learn new things and hone dance techniques, but for the instructors and students at QC SoDa?which stands for Quad Cities Social Dancing?it's even more important to make new friends and have a blast. These dynamic rug-cutters use cha-cha, salsa, bachata, swing, and other ballroom styles as a vehicle toward a rollicking great time, cultivating a supportive atmosphere where students get to know each other as well as they get to know the lindy hop. Annual social dances, a Meetup presence, and Friday-night country western dances?with free popcorn?show that QC SoDa dancers are just as focused on making connections as they are on hitting the right steps.

The owners of Bombdigity Bar & Grill?dubbed by one of the owner's 9-year-old grandaughter?wanted to quickly sum up their eatery?s dining experience with one word. And the menu is bombdigity, with highlights such as salads, wraps, and the Bomb burger, stacked with bacon, grilled onion, cheddar and pepper jack cheeses, house barbecue sauce, jalape?os, and onion rings. Inside the log structure, which is surrounded by the Plum Creek Arboretum, 4,888 square feet of space is topped off with a rustic cathedral ceiling. A medley of flat-screen TVs surround a horseshoe-shaped bar and the rest of the tables in the expansive dining room. Outside, two fire pits are surrounded by seating and tables for up to 100 people or 70 deer.
