At Bogey's & Stogey's, an impressive arsenal of cigars, cloves, cocktails, and luxury smokeables surrounds customers as they relax in a cozy lounge area. Amid wispy tendrils of fragrant smoke emanating from pipes and hookahs, patrons challenge each other to games of silver strike bowling, chess matches, or breath-holding contests. As 15 glistening brass taps dispense craft suds behind the bar, karaoke sessions each Wednesday, Sunday, and every other Friday draw crowds of amateur ballad belters. A walk-in humidor enshrines countless varieties of luxury cigars, and connoisseurs can upgrade their smoking accessories with the store’s selection of cutters, lighters, and portable humidor containers.
At Chillin the Most, chef Steve Brust begets a spread of hearty, refined American eats mixed in with what the restaurant calls "HealthyLicious" options. Inside three separate dining areas–each outfitted with a different atmosphere, and different music–visitors take on grilled ahi tuna, or grilled cheese sandwiches bolstered by beer-braised shredded short ribs. A wide drink selection headlined by 24 beers on tap accompanies meals, as does live entertainment throughout the week including dance parties and live bands.
Uncle Mick's Bar & Grill sates appetites with a menu of comforting bar fare and cold brews served in an upbeat, lively atmosphere peppered by live music and pool. Twosomes turn high-fives into high nines with orders of four fried chicken fingers eager to dip into buffalo, honey-mustard, or barbecue sauce. Meaty mouthfuls include the signature Mick burger, an 8-ounce patty char grilled to order, topped with lettuce, tomato, onion, and pickle, and served with chips or coleslaw, and further toppings can be added for an additional charge. Quartets of rumbling stomachs can quiet down with hot or cold sandwiches, such as the blackened open-face prime-rib sandwich, which accompanies fries, coleslaw, jus, and horseradish sauce that causes more nostrils to flare than an international talent search for the best mule impersonator.
Peanut Island Sports Bar & Grill pairs its traditional pub menu with an assortment of more than 50 bottled and 10 draft beers. Dining duos or quartets can kick-start their meals by feasting on one other's eye contact or sharing an appetizer such as the pan-seared, Cajun-rubbed ahi tuna, which floats down throats with spicy asian mustard, lemon butter, and broccoli slaw. Garnished in lettuce, tomato, onion and tartar sauce, grilled or blackened dolphin arrives in sandwich or wrap form, ready to appease entree-ready palates. Mandibles can also munch on lightly fried half-pound cheeseburgers, crowned in oozing american or swiss and accompanied by fries, tater tots or broccoli slaw. Peanut Island Grill brandishes beers such as Yuengling and Stella Artois available by the bottle, cup, or pitcher; well drinks; and sodas great for parched throats or bubbly face wash. Patrons redeeming Groupons Monday–Thursday receive a complimentary dessert with their meals.
With a wide range of edibles and drinkables, Backstreet's is open Monday through Saturday until midnight and Sunday until 10 p.m, making it a great place for some post-work unwinding and chatting (click here and here for the full selection of menu items). Plunge into a mouth watering filet mignon ($24.95), or reign in a sea-herd of shrimp scampi gorgonzola over linguini ($14.95). They also serve several specialty hamburgers like the Peter Luger Burger, a chargrilled burger bathed in Peter Luger steak sauce and topped with a Stetson hat of provolone cheese ($7.95), as well as gourmet pizza and sandwiches. Other menu items are specially made for sharing like baked escargot or Jamaica jerk tuna bites (both $8.95), allowing people to mix and match plates to pass between them and great for teaching the edible golden rule of nobody going home without trying everything.
The Palm Beach Improv stage has played host to some of the biggest names in stand-up spectacle, hosting prominent jesters Tracy Morgan, Daniel Tosh, and Damon Wayans in the last year alone. A rising stand-up star, Amy Schumer has woven her quilt of yuks on such programs as Late Night with Jimmy Fallon and The Ellen DeGeneres Show, and is fresh from her April 2010 Comedy Central Presents special which, unlike stage adaptations of C-SPAN hearings, premiered to high ratings. As an actress, Schumer has had her face televised on 30 Rock and will soon guest-star opposite Larry David in the upcoming season of Curb Your Enthusiasm. Patrons at Palm Beach Improv must be 21 or older, and a two-drink minimum is enforced in the club.
