Tia's Authentic Latin Food has sated cravings for Puerto Rican and Caribbean dishes for more than three decades. Head chef Susan Gonzalez conjures recipes learned in her parents' kitchen, whipping up breakfasts and dinners peppered with chorizo, picadillo beef, and slow-roasted pork. Café con leche and hearty breakfast burritos greet the morning, and at lunchtime, house-roasted pernil pork headlines a specialty Cuban sandwich alongside ham, salami, and Swiss cheese. For piscatorial platters, guests can sidle up to the blackened tilapia as it dons a house blend of Caribbean spices. Yellow tablecloths contrast the dining room's red and orange walls, and a corrugated metal-inlaid counter adds both an urban air and a touch of home for robots travelling on business.
Like tributaries merging to form a mighty river of marinara sauce, three friends and lifelong Italian restaurant owners joined forces to create Uncle Frank's Italian Restaurant, bringing along their best recipes with them. They make their pizza and pasta sauces daily, slathering them onto doughy crusts bound for fire-crackling ovens where they transform into New York-style pies. They prepare proteins such as chicken in the gamut of Italian styles, slathering the poultry with mushrooms and wine to create a marsala or coating it with breading and parmesan cheese to produce a parmigiana.

The chefs and owners of Green Chili Indian Bistro have 20 years of experience pleasing the palates of area residents; they opened their first eatery in 1993. Over the years, they've perfected their recipes, such as the slow-cooked lamb vindaloo or their signature biryani dishes. They aren't stingy with the secrets of their trade, though. They share their methods in cooking classes housed inside the restaurant on Saturdays. They can teach students to cook plenty of things that don't appear on the menu, also. "We know Indian food well," the owner says. "If something is not available, we make it per request."
Revelers reel through Planet Jump's 11,500-square-foot bouncy empire, unleashing imaginations over eight inflatable playgrounds and obstacle courses. A 16-foot Superman guards the entrance to the Superman Challenge, where contestants bop and tumble their way through pop-up barriers before scampering up and gliding down an enormous air-filled slide. Aspiring pirates commandeer the Ahoy Matey's ship for a swashbuckling battle, leap around the 250-square-foot expanse of the Wall-E house, or fly down the Cars double-lane slide, just as the first Model T rolled off the line at Henry Ford's inflatable bouncy factories. Children three years old and younger have a dedicated play space away from older children, scampering through the under-sea themed Crab Cake. Since Planet Jump does not impose time limits, tykes can show up at 10 a.m. and cavort all the way to closing time.
Between bounces, visitors bolster brain power, aiming acumen, and earn prize tickets with video games, skee ball, and air hockey, or fuel more fun with treats and drinks from the snack bar, including chicken strips, soda, and juice (not included in this Groupon). Parents can relax in front of 65-inch TVs, watch their kids play, or carry on riveting conversations in binary code with the complementary WiFi.
Mugs 'N Jugs takes pub fare to new heights with pulled pork sandwiches stacked high between two slices of toasted ciabatta bread, and juicy burgers on brioche buns. Their crispy, battered wings are a local favorite and can be ordered with your choice of fiery sauces. Lighter options include turkey-club spinach wraps and a gourmet chicken salad tossed with fresh pineapples, grapes, and walnuts. In between bites, diners can play pool, watch sporting events on big screen TVs, or perfect their karaoke.
Ribs, duck, scallops, and steaks smoked in-house daily. Barbecue po'boys and fresh corn bread. Molasses-brined duck and USDA-certified steaks. The chefs at Gunslinger's Saloon combine old-fashioned barbecue with gourmet ingredients to create a menu of flavorful smoked dishes. Guests can chow down sweet potato fritters or a B.L.T. with house-cured bacon and fried green tomatoes on the patio bar, called The Sling, or can share a dish of the cobbler-of-the-day in the welcoming dining room.
