In movie theaters the show begins when the lights go down. That?s true at Raleigh Road Outdoor Theatre too, only the ?lights? there are the sun. The drive-in theater specializes in first run double features of the latest Hollywood blockbusters. Radios tuned to 90.3 FM pipe in each flick's audio as moviegoers and well-behaved pets recline in their rides, or relax atop blankets or lawn chairs underneath the stars. A playground entertains youngsters before the first movie begins, while concessions such as popcorn, burgers, and corn dogs keep visitors satiated throughout showtime. The theater is open Friday and Saturday from early March through December, and hosts extended hours during the spring, summer, and early autumn months.
Film buffs across six states stare wide-eyed at large cinema screens, losing themselves in first-run Hollywood movies and the smell of fresh, buttery kernels within Your Neighborhood Theatre's 17 locations. Though all theaters prioritize comfortable seating, old-fashioned friendly service, and high-stakes preshow trivia slideshows, each location encompasses its own distinct charm, be it through arthouse décor, 3-D screens, or Rhode Island's vintage 1950's drive-in setting.
No matter the day, a sense of competition fills the air at King Pin Lanes. The sound of clattering pins and congratulatory high-fives echoes as bowlers roll strikes down the alley's 32 gleaming lanes. Automatic scoring systems allow visitors to focus on their upcoming bowls instead of adding up frames, and groups with kids 10 and younger can add bumpers to each gutter to help little ones get into the competitive spirit. Every Friday and Saturday, a DJ spins tunes to soundtrack cosmic bowling sessions with requests dominating after 9 p.m. At King Pin Cafe, King Pin Lanes' snack bar, bowlers gather all week long around plates of tater tots or freshly grilled burgers for conciliatory snacks after intense games or bowling shoe insults, while a full-service restaurant and lounge, Midlo's Bite is also available.

D?cor can say a lot about the type of food a restaurant serves. How does your d?cor inform or reflect your culinary practice?
Our [d?cor] creates an environment of relaxation with over-size booths that allow for viewing from wherever our guests choose to sit. Regardless of whether they choose a booth, table, or the bar, each guest has the opportunity to view one of our more than 20 TVs and large projector screen. We have wonderful patio seating. Our restaurant's d?cor is set up in such a manner that it includes sports fans, but doesn't exclude non-sports fan.
In your own words, how would you describe your menu?
Traditional American with a hint of Italian. Something for everyone, including kids. Our menu was designed to offer our guests options and variety compared with what a person may find in a typical sports bar. We are not fast food, but with our new menu, we are able to produce great food faster. We keep all of our customers in mind, especially the kids. We want our customers to come in with their families, so the menu was created with variety in hopes to please even the hardest to please.
Audiences often arrive an hour early to Laugh Out Loud’s comedy shows, lured in by the comedy club’s amiable staff, frequent visits by nationally renowned comics, and full dinner menu. Before the live acts step into the spotlight at 8 p.m., patrons can converse and watch scattered flat-screen TVs while dining on panini sandwiches, fresh-made Punchline Pizzas, and other casual fare. After dinner, audience members stay at their tables as the lights dim and the Laugh Out Loud stage is swarmed by daring and original joke tellers. Recent headliners have included Shaun Jones, known for his outrageous personal anecdotes, and Ron Feingold, whose musical comedy routine has recently slayed the club's audiences. Laugh Out Loud regularly schedules shows four nights a week, including the popular Wednesday night open mic, which showcases the fresh talent of amateur comedians and the soundman's admittedly unoriginal microphone check.
Owner and vintner Dr. Lane Gregory and his staff of merry winemakers harvest their wine grapes from the fertile muscadine vines that flourish on Gregory Vineyards' 120 acres of lush farmland. The winery's Old World tasting room and wood furniture lend a rustic atmosphere to samplings of cleverly named wines such as Sly Fox, Ruth Walton, or the dry white known as Bald Eagle. Like North Carolina's banana trees, the regional muscadine grape thrives from late August until early October, giving Dr. Gregory and company only a matter of weeks to harvest the tough-skinned fruit. In addition to tastings, the handsome property plays host to weddings and other special events. And, on an average day, visitors may be spotted taking wine tours with Dr. Gregory or exploring the vineyard's lake on romantic two-person pedal boats.
