A smattering of 20 sauces and seasonings dripping from handspun wings coats patrons' fingers as they cheer on their favorite professional sports teams broadcast on Buffalo Wild Wings' TVs. Eyes are torn between watching teams dribble a ball, shoot a puck, and land a grand jeté, and plates of plentiful wings, burgers, wraps, and salads.

Called “a jewel in this community” by the Lima News, the Lima Symphony Orchestra has been consistently performing inspiring classical performances since 1953. In "From Russia with Love," the symphony’s talented soundsmiths will recreate Tchaikovsky’s Pathetique and Sergei Prokofiev‘s Violin Concerto no. 1, anchored by the solo stylings of acclaimed Bulgarian violinist Alexandrina Boyanova. "The Power of Percussion" will kinetically present a collection of classic choral music, as well as up-and-coming percussion soloist Lisa Pegher, who can rhythmically tap on everything from the drums to Danny DeVito’s head. To reserve seats, concertgoers can call or stop by the box office with their Groupons Monday–Saturday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Check out the seating chart here. All seats are open to all ticket buyers on a first-come, first-served basis. Reservations are required.
The DVIDA-certified instructors at Always Ballroom Dance Studio believe that dance can benefit anyone, and uphold a policy of total acceptance across experience levels.

Pupils needn't reserve a spot or have a partner to attend most group sessions—the studio provides everything down to airsickness bags for soaring spins, and accommodates diverse tastes with more than 20 dance styles on its syllabus. Special events such as lock-ins and Salsa Saturdays top off the swinging schedule.
Dixie Twin Drive-In transports moviegoers back to the 1950s with a constantly changing selection of first-run films on two outdoor screens, one 120’ x 52’ and the other 100’ x 65’. Cars pull into the drive-in’s tree-enclosed grounds and tune into a private FM radio station, which provides the audio accompaniment to movies’ car chases, star-crossed love affairs, and alien invasions wedged awkwardly in the middle of historical biopics. The theater starts the season with weekend screenings, then kicks into full swing with daily screenings during the warmest weeks of summer.
