Like a camera obscura built around a dinner table, Home Slice Pizza stays forever focused on its cuisine. Within the brick-lined establishment’s kitchen, chefs toss and fire large and extra-large thin-crust pizzas topped with ingredients as classic as pepperoni and anchovies or as original as artichoke hearts, seasoned steak, and A1 sauce. Under this flavor ornamentation lies the pizzas’ true foundation: cheese. Blends of mozzarella, feta, ricotta, cheddar, parmesan, and romano provide a solid base for creative ingredient combinations and add a gooey warmth to every bite. Not content to be confined to pizzas alone, cheese also douses orders of pan-baked cheese bread and supports focaccia subs flecked with herbs and stuffed with hot ham, turkey, bacon, and veggies.
Equal parts sports bar, event center, and dance club, The Venue soothes the entertainment itch with its constant offering of things to do. Live performances frequently energize the facility, as does karaoke every Friday night. Amid the music, guests face off in pool or various other games, taking breaks between rounds to sip on beers and munch on finger-friendly foods.
A family-centric sanctuary of pin-punishment, Lido Lanes puts a spin on the run-of-the-mill neighborhood alley by combining its strike-centric sport with appetizing eats and regular live entertainment. Each of the waxen lanes sports a seating area, slimming lighting for weight-conscious bowling balls, and an automatic scoring system that spares bowlers the hassle of learning the game's complex scoring algorithms and theorems (such as Fermat's Last Frame). Along with stylish shoes, the spoil of your tribe's lane domination entitles you to two tantalizing appetizers from Lido Lanes' bar and grill (up to a $5 value per appetizer). Onion rings provide circular sustenance ($3.40), and deluxe nachos roll in on spinning rims to satisfy the barbarian hunger generated by your three brawny ball battles ($4.90). To accompany its guttural symphony of shattered strikes and exploding turkeys, Lido Lanes regularly invites bands playing everything from Chicago-style blues to Irish tunes and country singers to rock out on the lanes during Rock & Bowl night.
Inside Miss Cue Sports Cafe, guests are greeted with the clatter of pool balls on 22 tables intermingling with the sound of laughter. Between table times, players shore up hand-eye coordination with games of shuffleboard and darts or play shrunken-down versions of sports, such as basketball shootout and foosball.
Sports fans keep one eye on the televisions scattered about the space and the other on the menu of Harry's Hot Dog Hut. The pure vienna beef hot dogs come with innovative toppings such as creamed peas, bacon, baked beans, and a spicy mango chutney made with a house recipe. The full-service bar stands at the ready to concoct libations that wash down dogs better than frosty mugs of mustard.
