From the vantage point of an overstuffed sofa, bowlers can comfortably watch as their team members and opponents compete inside Eastway Bowl. In addition to luxurious seating arrangements, each of its 32 lanes features a ceiling-mounted 32-inch LCD monitor and a coffee table that can cradle specialties from the Eastway Sports Lounge and Grille. Visitors can dine lane-side on breaded cod fillet or jumbo hot dogs, or peruse menus in the lounge.

All bases of wine production, procurement, and enjoyment are covered at the Great Dakota Wine Fest. Guests can practice age-old winemaking techniques by hopping into a barrel and stomping grapes or by stabbing each one with an empty quill. Then, upon entering the wine tasting room, they can grab a wine glass emblazoned with the Great Dakota Wine Fest logo and begin testing pours from various South Dakota winemakers, all while live performances from various musicians add melodious din to the spirited sipping and schmoozing.

At Sports Zone, the reverberating echoes of supportive cheers and spirited conversation team up with a fully stocked menu of succulent burgers, wraps, and sandwiches. Tackle pangs with a Zone burger, a juicy half-pound patty fresh off the grates of a flame grill, or corral a texas burger, stacked with crispy bacon, monterey jack cheese, and a glistening onion-ring crown. Like Jerry Rice gracefully catching a purse-snatching seagull, dining pairs can snag sandwiches such as the thai chicken, which sends hunks of breaded chicken, thai chili sauce, and flecks of garlic waltzing across taste-bud goal lines. Tightly packed wraps sidle up next to crispy tortilla chips and salsa, whereas cheeseburger sliders require one-handed transportation, leaving free hands open for high-fiving. To chase savory bites, sodas or tap beers volunteer refreshing swigs, and TVs pour views from various sports games into equally thirsty eyes.

Born into this world 24 years ago, Shenanigans was the brainchild of two guys who wanted to bring Sioux Falls the type of activity-loaded pub prophesied in the Book of Better Leisure. Their extensive menu features five pages of crowd-pleasing pub fare such as the half-pound Shenanigan burger with American cheese ($7.49) and the supreme nachos ($9.79). Make sure to order a stack of 50 hot wings ($29.99), so you're fully prepared for the dystopian future in which sauce-stained chicken bones are the chief form of currency. The Power Combo ($18.99) features 10 mini cheeseburgers and 10 wings with the sauce of your choosing. With a satellite location in Tea and the original location in Sioux Falls, Shenanigans wields the dual-bladed supremacy of being the local hot spot for both sports viewing and the sweet-and-sour tones of karaoke, which runs Wednesday through Saturday nights in Sioux Falls and every Saturday night in Tea.
