ImPulse Fitness' passionate instructors center their classes on camaraderie and supportive energy. Bootycamp fitness classes combine resistance and cardio training to sculpt muscles into toned masterpieces. A veteran Zumba instructor leads international-rhythm-inspired workouts, getting participants to sweat in the original universal language of dance aerobics. The turbo-kick class combines aerobic exercise with muscle-building martial-arts moves, and Vinyasa flow and Hatha yoga classes home in on body, mind, and spirit. Students can also develop abdominal prowess and articulate bellybuttons during shimmy-inducing belly-dance classes.
At each of Drunken Fish's upscale restaurants, chefs create traditional and specialty sushi, along with stir-frys and other Japanese entrees. Fresh tuna nigiri and 10 oz Teriyaki glazed strip steak make for tasty pairings with signature cocktails, such as the Madame Butterfly martini with raspberry vodka, mango puree, and pineapple juice. In addition to the new Leawood location, the downtown Kansas City locale features a seasonal rooftop bar and lounge with great views of the city, making it an ideal place to see and be seen, even if it's just your own reflection in a martini.
Born of a union between Sports Radio 810 WHB and the restaurateurs at KC Hopps, Ltd., 810 Zone marries sports spectatorship with scrumptious sandwiches, burgers, and Kansas City barbecue. Gamblers can down a grilled salmon club at the Harrah's casino location or enjoy pizza at the Lee's Summit Zone, before a trip to the tables or before trying to pass off burgers as poker chips.
Fine Arts Theatres? four venues surround moviegoers with classic silver-screen ambiance as they present the latest independent and mainstream film offerings. Lovingly refurbished neighborhood movie palaces such as the early-20th-century Rio Theatre now boast surround-sound digital audio, high-backed rocker seats with arm-mounted cup holders, and movie trailers acted out by gregarious ticket takers. In addition to flicks opening each week, The Fine Arts Theatres hosts special independent screenings throughout the year including the Kansas International Film Festival (Oct. 10-16th) that features 55 films in 7 days and the Latin American Film Festival every September.
At Screenland, campy and classic are rarely mutually exclusive terms. The movie theater serves as a cinematic time machine, transporting spectators through the history of Hitchcock's mysteries and straight into the heyday of The Rocky Horror Picture Show. Though it also shows current titles, its schedule is often beholden to audience whims—the Crossroads location hosts new independent films that are uniquely screened at this sole location. This dual devotion to cherished and modern flicks helped Screenland earn the 2012 Readers' Choice award for Best Movie Theater from the Pitch.
Even outside the projection room, nostalgia rules. More than 40 games, from Donkey Kong to Missile Command, test dexterity at the Crossroads location's retro arcade, where guests can purchase passes to play indefinitely or until Frogger finally flags down a cab. Photographs taken by former Kansas City mayor Dick Berkley accompany historical trivia in the adjacent gallery, and celebrity handprints mark the outdoor patio. Greeting cinephiles out front is a marquee salvaged from the Isis Theatre, just as it once greeted a young Walt Disney when he shared his early animations there.
Wedding receptions and corporate meetings alike have taken advantage of the theater's capacity for private functions. At both exclusive and public events, however, a full-service bar supplies guests with libations, cracking open bottles of Boulevard Pale Ale and Tallgrass Velvet Rooster.
