To create a casual, friendly atmosphere, Brushes n' Bottles allows students to sip wines they've brought to class while they deftly wield their brushes. Choose an evening or afternoon event, and use acrylic paints to bring to life a bright, contemporary masterpiece. Classes often feature locally themed designs. Paint shutters in the French Quarter, a proud crawfish, or the beach. Brushes n' Bottles provides all art materials in addition to offering corkscrews and ice buckets. After you're finished painting and partying, you'll have a canvas suitable for framing above the fireplace or nailing onto the fridge.

Before hitting the links, sharpen up your chipping, putting, pitching, pitch-shifting, and Super Bowl Shuffling on the all-grass practice range and putting green, or try the driving range nearby. When you're ready, hop in your provided golf cart to match wits with the labyrinthine course, which features four sets of tee areas per hole, 17 water hazards, 80 sand bunkers, and 13 mechanical yetis.
