Spanning 4,000 square feet, the climbing surfaces at First Avenue Rocks mimic the natural textures of the abundant local sandstone boulder terrain. One hundred varied climbing routes up to 17 feet high greet climbers who choose to ascend by bouldering without ropes on angled walls and roofs dotted with challenging foot-and handholds or on the facility?s ropes courses. For safety, the facility positions its vertical terrain above the floor?s 10-inch-deep Asana pads for soft landings in the event of missed holds or misguided urges to fly. Instructors are available to prep students of all ages and ability levels to tackle the gym's terrain, teaching three stages of introductory climbing courses and two advanced lead-climbing courses.

To ensure each of The Fish Market Restaurant?s dishes are as fresh as possible, the two families at the restaurant's helm carefully source the seafood in everything from the eatery?s classic fish and chips to the heartier charbroiled swordfish steak. The chefs often infuse their creations with Greek and Cajun flair by saut?ing shrimp with feta cheese and sliced olives or topping snapper with greek island Santorini wine sauce. Thanks to a constant influx of culinary inspiration, the menu expands regularly, adding to the custom selections available for off-site catering services that can nourish gatherings from small dinner parties to massive cloning experiments gone wrong.

After working for decades as a successful oil executive, National Senior Games gold medalist Homer Brown decided to shift gears, opening BumperNets in 1999 to promote his beloved sport of table tennis to the masses. Nestled within the Riverchase Galleria Mall, Brown’s well-stocked, interactive emporium lets visitors hone their ping-pong or pool skills under the tutelage of a trained professional, or master the finer points of team management at the foosball table. Homer and his knowledgeable staff help guests deck game rooms in felt-clad pool tables, glittering pinball machines, and skee-ball alleys for rental or purchase, and can assist with onsite assembly.
