Since 2003, Charlie Brown's Family Sports Grill & Bar has paired an extensive menu of grilled sandwiches, steaks, and seafood with a feast for the eyes made up of 25 large flatscreen televisions. The restaurant's buffalo chicken wings come with or without bones, just like the majestic buffalo chickens of yesteryear, and its charbroiled and grilled burgers are piled with enough delicious bacon, cheese, and sautéed mushrooms to distract children from the kids' arcade for a while. Dishes such as fried soft-shell crab and shrimp alfredo offer a seafood angle to the entree list, which also documents chicken-fried steak and 14-ounce rib eyes served, and 8-ounce filets served with with veggies and mashed potatoes. To help guests to wash down hearty meals and salute the local sports memorabilia draped on the walls, the bartenders have composed a long list of beers, specialty drinks, and wines.

Crunching metal and the sweet smell of burning rubber prevail as the Monster X Tour invades the Ocean Center, thrilling all ages in an action-packed motorsports showcase.

Before the show, VIP tickets also grant access to the Pit Party, where fans can have autographs signed by the drivers.

Pelican Point merges British-style golf with Louisiana panache on a recently improved facility that houses two championship golf courses and two practice ranges. Built on 450 acres of a retired sugar-cane farm, the semiprivate golf club houses many obstacles, including wide bunkers, shot-blocking trees, and a wormhole that spits hapless golfers onto yard 100 of the driving range. Duos putt with precision on the championship-bermuda-grass greens of Pelican Point's premiere course, The Links, which enhances aim with up to 6,931 driving yards and a water hazard on nearly every hole. Golfers can also tee off at The Lakes course, which thwarts crooked shots with doglegs that meander through native Louisiana wildlife and wildflowers. Pelican Point observes a strict dress code at both courses, which requires clothing designed specifically for golf, such as collared shirts, golf-length shorts, and plaid brass knuckles.
