J.D. Legends nourishes entertainment-hungry families with a massive facility stocked with bowling, a restaurant offering Southern-style fare, a bar, and an arcade. The 24-lane bowling alley features a new-and-improved scoring system to better capture lane-skipping curveballs and light-speed strikes. During open-play hours, shoes gently cradle the feet of their temporary masters as lanes brace themselves for the hurtling of bowling balls down their slender midsections. The lanes frequently host themed parties and events, including cosmic bowling every Friday and Saturday night.

The facility?s art-deco carpeting and citrus-colored decorations invigorate bowlers with game-enhancing visions of early 20th-century French heydays and afternoons spent lazing about under yellowed skies.

Saul Good Restaurant & Pub combines a comfortable, yet elegant, atmosphere with hearty pub entrees. Chefs festoon third-pound burgers with eclectic ingredients such as blue cheese or pineapple, and they assemble equally inventive pizzas topped with thai, parisian, and argentine sauces. Servers also shuttle regional favorites such as chicken and waffles and bourbon-slathered sirloin to dark hardwood tables surrounded by red velvet booths and brass chandeliers. Fine spirits, craft beers, and decadent desserts are also available to cap off meals or add a sweet epilogue to your hard-to-finish memoir.

With more than 700 locations, Jamba Juice proves to the masses that nutrition can be speedy and delicious. Since the beginning, the company?s product philosophy has revolved around choosing whole fruits and other natural ingredients over artificial flavorings, sweeteners, and preservatives. The menu is completely free of high-fructose corn syrup and trans fats, and it offers additional accommodations for vegan and gluten-free diets.

This naturalistic approach is fully realized in Jamba Juice's selection of smoothies. Made with 100% fruit juice, sherbet, and frozen yogurt, the frosty delights range from all-fruit smoothies such as peach perfection and strawberry whirl to more indulgent creamy treats, including peanut butter moo'd, an enticing blend of peanut butter, bananas, nonfat vanilla frozen yogurt, and milk chocolate.

For those with heartier appetites, steel-cut oats steep in soymilk before being enhanced with toppings such as apples, cinnamon, and brown-sugar crumble. The lunch hour presents protein-packed mini wraps, toasted bistro sandwiches and California Flatbread that pack only about 320?420 calories each.

Bartenders dart about behind the lengthy wood bar at Patchen Pub, pouring pitchers of draft beer and stirring up mixed drinks. Servers parade out from the kitchen onto the sunny upper and lower decks, balancing trays of housemade wings, overstuffed deli sandwiches, and juicy Black Angus beef burgers. Meanwhile, carousers compete in lively games of darts and pool, pausing only to steal nibbles of nachos or order second rounds of drinks.

At Yesterdays Billiards Bar and Grille, the clack of pool balls reverberates across rust-hued walls and tasty plates of burgers, sandwiches, and hearty pub fare. Towering patty melts, well-dressed Reubens, and overstuffed cheesesteaks send their toothsome smells wafting across the softly lit billiard-room, whose hardwood accents acres of inviting green felt conjure images of timeless sportsmanship free from hustling pool sharks and eels masquerading as cue sticks. A knickknack-framed bar keeps mouths well-watered with high-spirited cocktails and frosty draft brews.
