Dancing Classrooms Northeast Ohio (DCNEO), which builds confidence, respect, and self-esteem through the practice of social dance, aims to help youth break down social barriers and learn to communicate with a new set of behavioral skills. Teaching artists lead classes of fifth- and eighth-grade students through 10 weeks of ballroom-dancing lessons that are held twice a week during the normal school day. To make lessons accessible and ease children into a new endeavor, they incorporate pictures and stories and connect dance terms to food, transforming feet into chopsticks and dance frame into a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. In addition to dance, DCNEO also enriches children’s education with opportunities to create visual artwork, poetry, and original songs. At the end of the course, students showcase their dancing skills and other projects completed during the program at a performance for friends and family.

Yorktown Lanes boasts 40 lanes, each of which is equipped with automatic scoring systems. Just beyond the lanes' edge, a lineup of colorful vinyl chairs adds a touch of vintage class. And inside the newly renovated bar onsite, bartenders liberally pour spirits, draft brews, and other fine beverages. The alley also hosts birthday bowling parties in one of two private rooms, including a banquet hall that can host wedding receptions or graduate seminars on the difference between duckpins and regular bowling pins.
A firehouse-themed sports bar, Memphis Station offers tasty bar eats and a lengthy list of bottled and draft beer in a friendly neighborhood setting. A cast of signature homemade burgers, the undisputed stars of the menu, includes several options that arrive at the table slathered with cheese, layered with bacon, and loaded with Jack-in-the-box-puppets that spring down amused esophagi on first bite. The Hook and Ladder is treated with crumbled bleu cheese, bacon, pickles, an onion ring, and barbecue sauce ($8.50), and the Five Alarm melds pepper jack, jalapeño, spicy mayo, salsa, and hot sauce with cool ranch for dipping ($8.50). Patrons with daintier appetites can nibble basket appetizers while they play Picture Hunter or watch NFL Sunday Ticket on one of four flat-screen TVs. Adrift in a starchy potato-skin boat laden with cheddar, bacon, and sour cream ($7), eager eaters can sail to Asia with panko-breaded shrimp ($7), down to Baja with cheddar jalapeño quesadillas ($6.50), or off to the Emerald City by simply following the yellow brick road.
Crisp, juicy apples dangle from trees on Heavenly Hill Farm's rustic orchard, ripening until the moment they're plucked by visitors. The farm's owners also harvest the apples and bake them into pies or press them into cider. At certain times, they may sell other seasonal offerings such as pears or honey from the farm's beehives. Guests may also clamber onto hayrides or wander through a cornfield maze.
The cooks at Nova Bar and Grill purvey a menu brimming with Argentina’s characteristic blend of Mediterranean influences, from Spanish to Italian, using ingredients derived from South America's agricultural- and livestock-focused traditions. A trio of empanadas snuggles a blend of cheese, cumin-tinged veggies, and either spinach, beef, or chicken in its crispy pastry shells ($6). Churrasco, or grilled skirt steak ($16), showcases Argentina’s famously beef-centric cuisine, and a full cast of meats takes center stage in the parrillada's blend of skirt steak, short ribs, chicken, and argentine sausage ($29). Bites into the Angus burger's manchego cheese, bacon, and avocado ($12) energize palates more effectively than garnishes of pickles infused with pop-rocks, and slices of la argentina pizza serenade taste buds with an orchestration of red peppers, hard-boiled eggs, and tomato. As they dine, guests at Nova Bar and Grill can take in the eatery’s modern, geometric décor, with ceiling-high, cylindrical-shaped columns, as well as back-lit, rectangle-shaped cutaways and chrome, chair-shaped chairs.
