Gatsby?s offers its patrons plenty of entertainment, from the cheers that erupt from boisterous sand-volleyball games on two courts to the resonating vocals of live bands. Guests can watch live performances from their seats as servers cart around trays filled with ranch-chicken pizzas and jumbo wings deep-fried in housemade Jim Beam barbecue sauce. Other finger-friendly foods include a half-pound Gatsby?s burger piled with saut?ed mushrooms, onions, swiss cheese, and bacon, as well as a deep-fried and breaded pork tenderloin stuffed inside a Kaiser roll. Outside, a fleet of picnic tables provides ample seating, and a nearby sand court proffers games of volleyball to tiebreak sandcastle build-offs. Gatsby's offers two outdoor patios, and hosts a Bike Night on Saturdays.

Momo2 encourages friends and families to pummel bowling pins, execute pool-trick shots, and belt out classic karaoke tunes. Patrons can quell belly rumblings with selections from Momo2's expansive menu of pub fare and drinks while comrades compete for lane supremacy on one of four bowling lanes ($2.50–$4.50/person). Brush up on geometry at the alley's twin pool tables ($2–$3.50 for an hour/person) and wear bowling shoes ($3/person) while tapping the eight ball in accordance with new regulations from the U.S. Department of Billiards. Aspiring singers can perform renditions of more than 90,000 songs in 10 different karaoke rooms of varying sizes ($25/hour for a medium room). Each karaoke room delights visitors with unique decor, such as a wall-mounted black hole that occasionally summons the specter of Elvis for a duet.

Formed in the glory days of heavy metal, Queensrÿche rocks audiences with songs that reveal the fierce polish of 30 years of evolving artistry. The band's distinctive mix of prog rock, metal, and subliminal messaging rocketed their Empire album up the charts, launching hits such as "Silent Lucidity," "Jet City Woman," and "Best I Can." Normally reserved only for members of Queensrÿche's fan club, a backstage meet-and-greet lets a small group of the devoted make personal connections with the four lords of loudness, shaking their lightning-fast hands and comparing headbanging techniques. With experience opening for Nickelback and Staind, opening band The Fifth's wailing guitars rally fist pumps and head thrashes as raging as a riverbed full of angry bulls.
