A classic pool hall, Lil Dixie's Cue & Grill's interior is dominated largely by a variety of billiards tables. With 11 total destinations for billiards games—plus four dart boards—visitors can get their fix of old-school gaming, and they can get a drink and some grub in the process. Lil Dixie's also offers a full menu, as well as well drinks, beers on tap, and adult Shirley Temples. The hangout also beckons revelers with live music from guitar players and TVs that air baseball, possibly leading to a dream about a batter swinging a guitar.

During the week, the lot at The Drive-In sits vacant—but it's far from abandoned. A bit before the clock strikes 8 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays, cars start to crowd into empty spots. The carloads of families and couples on date night are there for the feature, which usually includes one kid-friendly movie—think Planes—or one for grownups, such as Wolverine. Plus, audience members can munch on buckets of popcorn as films unfold.

Trio's chefs celebrate the flavors of Italy and American with a menu of familiar comfort food. Shredded mozzarella cheese, pepperoni, and veggies are topped onto homemade pizza crusts. Homestyle meals include country-fried chicken and beef tips. Even the sides are decidedly Southern, with black eyed peas, fried green tomatoes, and macaroni and cheese. The laid-back eatery entertains guests with live music, and invites guests to try out their vocal range during karaoke events. On select nights, the Trio?s staff hosts a trivia tournament that rewards winners with prizes and enough confidence to finally enter the 5th grade spelling bee.

The Edge?s movie masters light up wall-to-wall screens with anticipated blockbusters and obscure indie flicks as guests kick back in high-backed, adjustable chairs. 18-inch risers position each row at just the right height for an unobstructed stadium-style view, and Dolby Digital surround sound systems tickle eardrums with multidimensional soundscapes. While cinephiles tuck in to tasty tidbits and delicious plotlines, moveable cup-holder armrests make it easy to stow beverages, snuggle with loved ones, or catapult beverages onto not-so-loved ones. The concessions stand sells beer and wine throughout screenings.

Owners Monica Webb, Helena Thornfeldt, and Deborah Schjodt, a trio of former professional athletes, foster their life-long love of competition with 10 Diamond tables and replenish nutrients with inspired American fare. Dominate on the sweeping emerald, fueled by a full bar with more than nine taps and unlimited cue sharpenings. The menu, a profusion of time-tested fodder, includes wings tossed in 11 different sauces ($7.49 for 10), the classic Stix burger ($6.99), and the Sledgehammer sandwich, a soaring duet of salami and roast beef accompanied by warm provolone baritone ($7.99). Pizza rolls encase troves of toppings, such as ham, jalapeños, and bacon, in a hearty, hand-tossed crust ($6.99), much like Chef Boyardee smuggles secret recipes in his hat.
