Logger's Park Sports Complex feels a lot like a kids' camp?except that people of all ages are welcome. During the summer, outdoor diamonds and courts host softball, volleyball, and kickball leagues for men's, women's, and coed-teams. Three streams and two waterfalls of the mini-golf course provide a tranquil, babbling soundtrack and a convenient spot for a celebratory hole-in-one cannonball.
That's only the summer, though?but Wisconsin winter doesn't stop the fun. An ice rink opens once temperatures drop, letting visitors strap sharp shiny things on their feet and glide peacefully in circles. In all weather, Logger's Pub & Pizza solves hunger dilemmas with a menu that includes burgers, wings, and pizzas, while the all-you-can-eat pizza and wings buffet available during football season fires fans up to watch Aaron Rodgers throw stuff.
Every Friday night at The Hairy Lemon Irish Pub, the menu expands?cooks add six seafood entrees to their usual repertoire. For the Friday Night Fish Fry, cooks bake cod, fry beer-battered perch, and sear fillets of walleye, serving them alongside parsley butter potatoes, coleslaw, potato salad, and rolls. But the menu is just as hearty the rest of the week, as cooks craft pub classics ranging from wonton-wrapped mozzarella sticks to reuben sandwiches heaped with sauerkraut. By way of entertainment, the cozy eatery hosts tournaments of the popular Sheepshead card game on the first and third Saturday of the month.
The Klavier Lounge serves up after-work spirits, accompanied by the soothing sounds of 88 expertly orchestrated keys. Patrons can savor sips of the venue’s specialty martini, The Klavier, in the luxurious leather half-moon booths, chat up coworkers with a cocktail beneath the chandeliered ceiling, or stuff dollar bills and napkins scribbled with friends' phone numbers into the pianist’s tip jar. Expertly mixed martinis, such as the pomegranate and lemontini ($7+) please fruit-seekers, while $6 martini specials, $2 off imports, and $1 off mixers on Wednesdays and Thursdays placate wallets. In addition to bottled beer, The Klavier also stocks wine for the liquor leery and brings in occasional visiting bands and musicians to augment the ambience on weekends. Although not included in this Groupon, The Klavier Lounge also offers a savory selection of enticing eats, and is open for business Wednesday–Saturday beginning at 5 p.m.
