Dogs romp around 7,500 square feet of cushioned rubber flooring, nuzzling with new friends and learning off-leash etiquette like every toddler eventually must. This is the scene at Performance Plus K9 Activity Center during its Perfect Pups pet obedience course, a seven-week program that teaches pooches aged 8–18 weeks how to respond to easy commands and respect owners' homes. It's just one of the obedience courses that the dog-loving staff at Performance Plus offer—they also provide classes in competition obedience and agility. Plus, they recently added new services including grooming and boarding, so pups can stay all day.

Swathed in the Cape Cod–style clubhouse of LeBaron Hills Country Club, Lilly’s captivates palates with a seasonal menu of seafood, steak, and pasta. Conjure the flavors of summer with a greens-and-pineapple salad ($7 for a half portion, $9 for a full portion), a mix of citrus chunks and mango dressing for tropical flavors and wasabi peas for seasonal heat. Chefs create foodscapes on a linguini canvas by painting hills of sautéed chicken and lobster and a forest of mushrooms, broccoli, and roasted tomatoes with a gorgonzola cream sauce ($13 for a half portion, $24 for a full portion). Prosciutto-wrapped pork tenderloin and asparagus ($19) snorkel through a sea of chipotle cream sauce, excavating submerged scallions and pirate doubloons from mounds of mashed potatoes. A three-layer feast, the Georgia Banks grilled swordfish ($30) rests on a pile of sliced potatoes while the sweet juices of a pineapple, mango, and strawberry salsa run down its sides.
