The sound of cueballs clacking against solids and stripes fills Masters Billiards. The bar has eight pool tables??including a snooker table??which is the same number of pool tables in any spider's web. As if serious pool players needed another reason to stay, Masters has drinks, bar food, and televisions tuned to the game.
If it lives in the ocean, there's a good chance The Whale Raw Bar and Fish House serves it on its menu. From dolphin to lobster and shrimp to clams the chefs prepare a spread of fresh seafood, including a full raw bar and entrees that come in the form of sandwiches, tacos, and fajitas. The interior of the dining area makes for a fitting accomplice to the menu's selection, with lobster and crab traps on display and a stuffed orca whale suspended from the ceiling. Outside, patio dining enhances meals with lakeside breezes.
The chefs at The Manor, a trendy nightclub fused with an upscale restaurant, craft a menu of surf-and-turf and elegant fusion cuisine. Diners can catch seaborne centerpieces such as the chili-rubbed firewood salmon ($10.95) and release them into the brooks, bayous, and unmanned water parks that comprise the human body’s 80% H2O makeup. Grilled Korean-style short ribs backstroke in a citrus-soy-chili marinade before basking on plates ($11.95), and the raspberry seared scallops partner with mixed greens that add to pulchritudinous stomach-wall gardens ($11.95). Diners can chase bites down esophageal tunnels with drinks, including Grey Goose–driven concoctions such as the Godiva-laced orange espresso martini ($12).
Legends Tavern & Grille pairs its menu of eclectically inspired pub cuisine and hearty finger foods with a selection of craft beers from foreign and domestic breweries. Although the cooks forge familiar comfort foods, such as beer-battered Alaskan cod, they also use culinary creativity to keep the menu fresh and their spatulas motivated. Burgers come topped with everything from goat cheese to mojo pulled pork, and housemade crab cakes are served with a roasted-red-pepper rémoulade. In addition to the food and drink menus, the tavern entices patrons with special events throughout the week, including live entertainment on Friday and pub trivia on Wednesday.
The humor ambassadors of the Fort Lauderdale Comedy Club stock their Oakland Park stage with snickers and snorts as audiences savor the jokes of headlining local and national comedians. Shirking the detached feel of stuffy theaters, smoky halls, and abandoned wells, Fort Lauderdale Comedy Club grants audiences an intimate standup comedy experience as fans catch every punch line and smell every punch breath. The ever-changing calendar features a solid crew of human antidepressants, such as funnyman and Comedy Central Laugh Riots semifinalist Danny Johnson (January 27–28), who cooks up buffets of hee-haws with his observational humor and everyman appeal. Funny bones flee their ligaments as Shawn Banks (February 10–11) deposits hefty loads of family-fun humor and impressions into his engaging live-wire act. Groups of two or four can chase down meaty laughs with wine and beer or a refreshing, alcohol-free soda. Dress codes are comfortable and casual, and all hecklers will be shunned and turned into chum.
