Tiki columns and decorative fins enhance the tropical atmosphere inside Soulfish Grill, where the catch of the day is always flavorful fish entrees. Salmon, mahi mahi, and ahi tuna plates compete with shrimp and fish baskets with hush puppies for the title of most filling meal. For a taste of spice, try a Louisiana gumbo with crawfish and sausage or nibble on a serving of grilled or tempura-battered fish or shrimp, which fill baja tacos and tostadas. Finish off the meal with a Southern-style slice of key lime or pecan pie.

A lengthy lineup of traditional game-day fare and a sports atmosphere captivate fans at Fox and Hound - Bailey's, where the kitchen remains open as late as its neighboring fully stocked bar. Chefs cook until the wee hours of the morning and always until the bar closes, baking Bavarian pretzel starters, crafting towers of onion rings, and preparing hand-battered chicken tenders that are cooked until they are golden brown. They blend their own seasonings to sprinkle over grilled-to-order burgers, and draw from a diverse roster of cheeses and toppings to crown their wood-oven-inspired flatbreads.

While manning the bars, bartenders tap into a stash of libations, such as UV Whipped vodka and Patron Silver tequila, to mix their specialty cocktails. To further foster a sporting ambiance, high-definition TVs glow with sports games and custom music-video playlists, and guests partake in pastimes of ump bashing, billiards, or competitive people watching.

Since 1998, the ASE-certified mechanics at The Star Auto Service have issued drivers a simple promise: “If you drive it on Earth, we’ll probably service it.” From within the tool-packed service bays of this certified NAPA Auto Center, the techs live up to that promise every day, tackling jobs ranging from oil changes and preventive maintenance to engine replacements, transmission work, and electronics overhauls. High-tech diagnostic equipment burrows to the source of potential problems, and a 21st Century tune-up unearths an even more in-depth analysis. In addition to its initial promise, the team also abides by a strict code of ethics, which dictates its commitments to the customer and how to conduct a drag race between minivans.

With its weathered wooden bar, smattering of flat-screen televisions, and many tables and booths, Rocky's Bar & Grill exudes a thoroughly laid-back atmosphere where people can feel comfortable lingering over a drink with friends. The cooks embrace this same spirit as they prepare a menu of American and Tex-Mex finger foods as well as heartier meals. The selection includes shareable orders of cheese fries, nachos with chicken, and fried pickles, as well as burgers topped with everything from mushrooms and swiss cheese to bacon and jalapeño. Although the grill features two pool tables and four bouncy castles in the back room, it also keeps guests entertained by hosting special events throughout the week, such as poker nights, pub trivia, karaoke, and live bands.

Below Elite Cigar Cafe's black tin ceiling, teeth-clenched stogies smolder and reach for the sky with aromatic plumes.
