Whether dancing, watching the game, or grabbing a burger, a visit to Night Deposit Whiskey Library can help make it happen. Casual and cozy with hardwood flooring and exposed brick, the hangout invites friends to just be themselves. DJs and live musicians visit regularly to facilitate dancing. Meanwhile, a full bar and a menu full of comfort food? such as steak omelets for brunch?prevent the sound of grumbling stomachs from distracting the TVs' athletes. Fifteen rotating microbrews ensure something for both beer connoisseurs and easily pleased palates.
After the birth of her first child in 2001, Baby Boot Camp’s founder and certified trainer and spin and Pilates instructor Kristen Horler wanted a postnatal fitness program that didn't require her to leave her baby at the door. Her solution was to start a suit of programs just for new and expecting parents where mothers could bond with their infants while soaking up the support and camaraderie of their peers. During Strollfit sessions, certified trainers and Radio Flyers equipped with outboard motors lead ladies through innovative routines that incorporate baby-filled strollers into yoga, cardio, and strength training. For long-term fitness, coaches encourage aspiring runners to break through the tape during the 5K training program, and Kristen's own Nutrition Solutions teaches the benefits of healthy-eating habits during a four-week program designed by registered dieticians.
The recently renovated Hollywood Bowl, enchants guests with polished corridors and automated scorekeeping. On Thursday–Saturday nights starting at 9:30 p.m., both locations activate their black lights and ample supply of firefly essence for cosmic bowling, when rollers negotiate tricky splits in a kaleidoscopic environment. At Hollywood Bowl, guests can enjoy burgers and beers at Club Hollywood Sports Bar in the glow of 14 47-inch TVs. Both locations also boast their own arcade room, where players can compete in classic games such as Frogger, skee-ball, and seeing who can carve a marble bust of a Roman emperor the fastest.
All walks of life gather to eat at Main Events Sports Grill, but the chefs make sure they "eat with their eyes" first. Each pub-food staple on the menu gets two things: a creative culinary twist and an artful presentation. Burgers might arrive topped with bacon and a painterly swirl of peanut butter, or they might catch the light with a J?germeister-based glaze. The adult mac 'n' cheese aims for a more abstract landscape, with its hefty portions of penne pasta tossed in spicy parmesan and white cheddar cream, bits of bacon, toasted bread crumbs, and melted blue cheese. More conventional eye-candy can be found on the 10 HDTVs, which broadcast sports and UFC fights.
For those who don't have time to linger over each artfully assembled plate, Main Event hosts what it calls fast lunch on weekdays?quick soups, salads, and sliders that are perfect for those who need to return to work or get back to chasing their runaway lawnmower. Later in the day, Main Event returns to its more relaxed "neighborhood hangout" pace with Happy Hour specials and innovative cocktails poured by talented mixologists.
The menu at MacGregor's Public House reads like an atlas of the Scottish highlands. The burgers—such as the Pentland with cool tzatziki—are each named for a region of the little nation. Composed of lamb and beef, the juicy patties are hormone- and antibiotic-free and carry inventive toppings such as pan-fried pastrami and Granny Smith coleslaw. Shepherd's pie and fish 'n' chips further the sensation that one has stepped into a public house in the Scottish countryside, and pies made from scratch cool, their golden crusts covered with melting ice cream like a bad magician at third grader’s birthday.
Considering its name, it shouldn't come as a surprise that Bierhaus has a lengthy brew selection. Thirty-two different varieties fill its shelves, from imports to select craft beers to American lagers. Owners Ben Rash and Ryan Gengler modeled their business after an oasis of beer with 32 drafts, although their food skews a little more American: cooks grill burgers, smoke meats in-house, and fry wings to pair with frosty beverages.
