The trendy, eclectic decor at MGLounge offers a stylish environment for groups to unwind with a drink or a quick bite to eat. Green, blue, and red neon lights lend a modern vibe amid some of the space's more casual elements, such as the towering bundles of bamboo stalks and the tables made from halved barrels. While seated at one of the high-topped tables or groupings of black armchairs and love seats, guests can indulge with shareable small plates from a menu that routinely changes, and might feature anything from pulled-pork sliders and mango-habanero wings to gourmet cheese plates and lobster tails with butter sauce. A selection of more than 50 craft beers complements the varied menu. To keep patrons entertained in-between bites and sips, MGLounge also hosts live musical performances.

Not every shot at Crescent Golf Club is created equal. Though the usual requirements of distance, accuracy, and guts are necessary to score well throughout the 18-hole course, a few shots stand out and may even haunt players well after their round is over. On No. 8?a par 3?tee shots must sail over a pond before alighting on a shallow green, leaving little room for error. On the par 4 16th, meanwhile, a tricky approach onto an elevated green can provide some drama as competitors fight to sink shots without resorting to wizardry. If these holes trip players up, a 7-acre driving range rubs shoulders with the course near the clubhouse, providing plenty of opportunity for them to hone their swings in preparation for their next bout with the course.

Course at a Glance: * 18-hole, par 72 course * Total length of 6,822 yards from the back tees * Course rating of 73.1 from the back tees * Course slope of 130 from the back tees * Four sets of tees per hole

Woodleaf and Pla Mor Lanes each boast 24 avenues of pin-busting entertainment equipped with overhead automated scoring. After lacing up rented footwear ($3/pair), players can squeak shoes against polished floors in the run-up to their attempts at an oft-elusive five-strike Butterball Turkey. An arcade and pro-shop occupy idle hands, and full bar and snack shops (not included with this deal) sate thirsty pin-pulverizers between turns.

Before moving to Charlotte and taking the reins at Old Stone Winery, Darin and Naomi Griffin lived in Germany, where they refined their palates at wine festivals in the Rheingau region. Nowadays, they pass along the fruits of their experience via wines such as their 2007 chambourcin, which won a double gold at the North Carolina State Fair, and their sweet muscadine wine, which won the 2008 Muscadine Cup. The latter was crafted from grapes grown on the winery?s 130-acre estate.

The Griffins strive to use local sources for the rest of their eclectic wine catalog, which encompasses both reds and whites in flavors ranging from sweet to dry.

At Curves, exercisers of all fitness levels move around a circuit of hydraulic-resistance machines that have been designed to work with women's bodies and promote weight loss, protect against osteoporosis, and deal with arthritis. An experienced trainer is always nearby to help manage machine-maneuvering and muscle making. Instead of fiddling with weight stacks, filling medicine balls with medicine, and losing your momentum, the hydraulic machines account for different body weights and fitness levels to create resistance that matches one's abilities, which thereby decreases the risk of soreness or injury. Because traditional lift-and-lower motions create bulky muscles, each machine uses push-and-pull motions to create toned, lean muscles perfect for crushing a grapefruit without looking like you can.

Vines sprout from the red soil, twisting along their supports and craning toward the sun. Bunches of native Muscadine grapes weigh these gnarled vines down until they are harvested by a member of the Cauble family. Generations of Caubles have recreated this scene, overseeing 36 acres of land that is watered by natural underground springs. With the native grapes, the Caubles create exquisite varieties??such as the semi-dry Phyllis Ann, the floral Rosetta, and the barely peppery Monroe??to suit any meal or palate. Guests swing by the vineyard for tastings, art exhibits, and yoga classes held amid the vines. Each year, the setting also hosts numerous weddings as well as a concert series featuring local and nationally renowned artists.
