The owners of Bombdigity Bar & Grill?dubbed by one of the owner's 9-year-old grandaughter?wanted to quickly sum up their eatery?s dining experience with one word. And the menu is bombdigity, with highlights such as salads, wraps, and the Bomb burger, stacked with bacon, grilled onion, cheddar and pepper jack cheeses, house barbecue sauce, jalape?os, and onion rings. Inside the log structure, which is surrounded by the Plum Creek Arboretum, 4,888 square feet of space is topped off with a rustic cathedral ceiling. A medley of flat-screen TVs surround a horseshoe-shaped bar and the rest of the tables in the expansive dining room. Outside, two fire pits are surrounded by seating and tables for up to 100 people or 70 deer.

On Saturday nights at Channahon Lanes and Riverfront Lanes, the lights turn down and the music turns up as colored lights flash on the lanes. This weekly event is called Rock It Bowl and lends both bowling alleys the lively feel of a nightclub or the bedroom of a kid who's really afraid of the dark. Bumpers can be called into action on any lane, and even during the day, the clatter of pins is backdropped by music. Between frames, grownups can escape to the bar for a brew and kids can make their way to the video games in the arcade.

Open since 1945, Elmer's Doghouse has been a haven for generations of diners looking for cold brews, hot meals, and a set of familiar faces to enjoy them with. At this casual neighborhood spot, the kitchen staff still dishes out burgers, pizzas, and steak dinners lit by the neon glow of beer signs. On Monday nights, these meals emerge amid the tuneful clatter of the bar’s acoustic open mic, refueling audiences and musicians alike. Other musical entertainments include karaoke nights and live bands, who often coax diners into dancing or just giving them a bite of their food.

While bowlers have become accustomed to playing under fluorescent lighting and perching on vinyl seats, Jillian's updates the experience with a nightclub atmosphere and modern decor. Each lane in the black-light bowling lounge holds up to eight people in a luminous glow that?s harmless to the eyes of baby bats. Between bowling frames, three Brunswick Black Stallion billiard tables engage those with the urge for further friendly competition. Alternately, patrons can turn to the game room where they can get their adrenaline racing. Players sate between-set hunger pangs with the dining room's menu of American eats such as hot wings, burgers, and pizzas.

Though the flavors of Mexico are front and center at Taco Grill & Salsa Bar, the eatery's chefs also flirt with other cuisines. They pair Mexican favorites such as enchiladas in mole sauce with Cuban-style sandwiches and Tex-Mex tacos served with tomato, cheese, and sour cream. And every dish?from towering nachos to vegetarian burritos?benefits from a healthy dose of house-made salsas that vary from mild to burning hot.
