Poseidon Spa's retinue of pampering practitioners lavishes attention on patrons from head to heels with a choice of facial or massage spa packages. Under the relaxing kneads of the Poseidon massage, backs evict stresses for musculature as stress-free as a ball-pit meditation session.

Alternatively, signature balancing facial sessions coat complexions in antioxidant-rich concoctions, equalizing skin's mood swings under an hydrating mask and facial massage.

The Rusty Spoon's kitchen team transforms locally sourced ingredients into succulent meat, pasta, and London-inspired gastropub fare on a rotating menu. First plates beckon dining duos to share seasonal flavors, which can include tastes such as clams poached in butter and lowered by pulley systems onto a toasted baguette. Chefs hand-cut fettuccini and weave the noodles around house-made sausage, and a coffee rub coats a grilled culotte of steak. Shrimp broth flows between local yellowtail snapper and clams from Cedar Creek in a stew accented by tomato, coconut and peanuts. For dessert, hands pull pieces from house-made doughnuts and plunge spoons into a trio of puddings. Like the Man in the Moon's facial expression, The Rusty Spoon's menu changes each week, and these dishes are an example of what may be available.
A kaleidoscope of diverse craft beers pours from the taps at Brew, with seven different drafts and dozens of bottled beers available on a single night. Bartenders pull tap handles and snap bottle caps off of beers from Rogue, Dogfish Head, Stone, and Abita, as well as other seasonal selections. The selection of beer complements hookah as well as pool. Brew’s team also mixes up an array of cocktails with liquors like Jack Daniels Honey and Jose 1800, named for the year in which Thomas Jefferson enjoyed his first jello shot.
Moviegoers kick back in tiered stadium seats and absorb unobstructed views of Hollywood’s latest studio releases at Cobb Plaza Cinema Café 12. A Dolby Digital audio system ensconces audiences in a seamless cocoon of sight and sound while couples raise the armrests on their high-backed leather chairs for optimum cuddling. The concession stand entertains taste buds with theater classics such as popcorn, candy, and Coca-Cola along with a full menu of beer and wine options. Drivers can snag parking spots in the attached garage for $2.50 with validation, and youngsters can pedal their tricycles over to the theater in the summer months for free kiddie showings.
American craft beers, particularly from Florida breweries, fill the 51 drafts in Eternal Tap's rustic bar, which also stocks more than 100 bottled beers, an extensive bourbon selection, and fixings for mixed drinks and beer cocktails. These libations complement the kitchen's hand-tossed 10- and 16-inch pizzas, upon which chefs can sprinkle a choice of toppings—banana peppers, sliced sausage, and black olives among them—before firing pies in a brick oven. Along with pizzas, the culinary team specializes in other homemade delicacies, including hummus, soups, bread sticks, and pretzels flavored with cinnamon sugar or salt and parmesan.
The latest sports games flicker across Eternal Tap's more than 20 televisions. On Wednesday, jazz and blues musicians score meals with soulful solos, and during Tuesday and Thursday happy hours, local pianists entertain guests by tickling the ivories, rather than tickling diners until they sing an entire Billy Joel song.
