Golfers across Texas, Arizona, and Georgia get an expert's opinion on their local private and public courses through AvidGolfer Magazine. The professionals also offer some basic instructions, in-depth product reviews, and careful explanations of why a lower score is better. Besides expert advice, the magazine releases an annual passbook that grants subscribers entry into several local courses.
Reports of strange sights abound near a simple brick building just off the leafy avenues of Avery Park. Some people share stories of a no-frills grill permeated by the smell of juicy steaks and charbroiled burgers, and others tell tales of a hall resounding with music from live bands, laughter, and clinking glasses. These visitors haven?t entered a time warp?they?ve simply found Jekyll & Hyde's, a pub that leads a double life as both a purveyor of hearty eats and nightlife excitement.
Named for the famous short story by Robert Louis Stevenson, the pub celebrates the author?s little-known second career as an artisanal burger chef with specially seasoned beef patties decorated with jalape?o bacon and American cheese. Visitors settle in cozy booths of tufted brown leather to munch on Mr. H's special steak sandwiches or share baskets of chicken fingers, or they can head to the full bar to fix their eyes on the drama of games unfolding on multiple flat-screen TVs. In a separate poolroom, billiard balls clack and clatter over the green felt of nine tables, and players eye their next shots over frosty glasses of beer.
Gleaming bowling balls rumble down 40 polished wooden lanes at Junction Lanes Family Entertainment Center, where clusters of bowlers lace up multicolored kicks and spend an hour waltzing to the tune of clattering pins. On weekends, regular lights and just-whitened smiles give way to the black lights, strobe lights, disco balls, and rousing music of cosmic bowling.
Mini golfers can head over to Treasure Cove, an 18-hole course awash in neon obstacles and vivid oceanic murals. Pirate ships, buried treasure, and creatures of the deep enliven the underwater-adventure-themed course.
At The Depot Grill, players sink teeth into piping-hot pizzas from Buchi Z Pizza, creamy scoops of Bruster?s Ice Cream, or steaming buns loaded with Nathan?s Famous hot dogs. This sustenance shores up gamers so they can hone their reflexes at the arcade.
Every now and then, the normal lights at Atlanta Range and Ordnance turn off, the black lights flicker on, and the targets start to glow. These special shoots allow participants to practice firing amid low-light conditions. In addition to these themed activities, the range also hosts bowling-pin shoots and ladies' day every Thursday. Away from the range, instructors lead classroom sessions covering firearms safety and other fundamentals. Back onsite, armorers maintain and customize firearms.
