Cinema Grill captures all angles of entertainment in its three show rooms, from newer movie releases and live sporting events blasting on giant screens to a rotating cast of comedians lobbing laugh bombs as crowds feast on fare from the full-service restaurant and bar. While actors work their best angles on the screen, patrons can translate their dialogue into Esperanto or order from the menu, which is laden with entrees and suds from the local brewmasters at Surly. The theater converts into a satellite stadium when it broadcasts live sporting events, which gain lifelike clarity on its giant 30-foot high-definition screen.

The year 1927 saw Babe Ruth’s Yankees dominate pro baseball and the precursor to Big Louie's Bar and Grill—Main Street Tavern—open in Minneapolis. In addition to depicting athletes from that bygone era, the Big Louie’s menu catalogs an array of traditional American bar and grill fare. From boneless wings to fish ‘n’ chips, the cuisine roster has even more depth than the famed Yankees lineup of ’27. The restaurant further establishes its entertainment value by hosting karaoke and bingo and by not allowing recitations of real-estate-law books.

Here's How It'll Appear on The Site Taking your child to an R-rated horror film might elicit a reaction, but it’s rarely a positive one. At the Jim Lupient Water Park, kids shriek in delight as they make their way down three giant water slides, either lying on their bellies, tubes, or tame pet crocodiles. The park’s rock-quarry theme echoes throughout with foam equipment shaped to resemble rocks and logs ideal for climbing, walking, or floating on. Older kids and adults can enjoy water volleyball and do laps in swimming lanes, and little tots can safely walk into zero-depth entry pools to splash around in spray features. The park also makes it possible for families to enjoy their lunches beneath shade-sheltered cabanas before stepping next door for a round of mini golf on the 18-hole Grand Rounds Miniature Golf Course.
