Sombreros and colorful blankets decorate the marigold walls of Los Enchilado's, a festive Gladewater restaurant that specializes in Mexican cuisine. Here, quesadillas, tacos, and cheesy enchiladas are routinely washed down with ice-cold margaritas and daiquiris. Though most people don't need an excuse to spend a night at Los Enchilado's, it doesn't hurt that the restaurant routinely shows World Cup and other soccer games.
Two things are vital to an authentic Greek meal: the right mix of ingredients and the coming together of friends and family. At Athena Greek and Lebanese Grill, both can be found in steady supply. In the kitchen, cooks prepare lamb kabobs over a charcoal grill and serve chicken shawarma, gyro meat, or jumbo shrimp atop beds of feta salad. To encourage an appreciation of authentic Greek cooking even at home, Athena's onsite grocery store stocks authentic mixes and spices, many of which are used in the kitchen's own recipes. There's also a sense of community here that goes beyond just sharing meals. After 3 p.m., Athena's encourages groups to hang out on the patio and rent a hookah to relax and share stories told entirely through smoke rings.

Designed by Dallas native and 10-time PGA Tour tournament winner Don January, Pinnacle Golf & Boat Club’s 18-hole course winds through the shadows of old oak trees and on the shores of Cedar Creek Lake. Narrow fairways tunnel through dense tree lines, penalizing golfers who lack control off of the tee and familiarity with horticultural vernacular. Cool breezes foretell the presence of multiple water hazards, which further challenge shot-making decisions on 10 holes. After rounds, the Clubhouse restaurant—which is open to members and golfers only—awaits from its perch overlooking the lake to vanquish appetites roused after sampling flavorful fringe on the 18th green.
