A lengthy lineup of traditional game-day fare and a sports atmosphere captivate fans at Fox and Hound - Bailey's, where the kitchen remains open as late as its neighboring fully stocked bar. Chefs cook until the wee hours of the morning and always until the bar closes, baking Bavarian pretzel starters, crafting towers of onion rings, and preparing hand-battered chicken tenders that are cooked until they are golden brown. They blend their own seasonings to sprinkle over grilled-to-order burgers, and draw from a diverse roster of cheeses and toppings to crown their wood-oven-inspired flatbreads.
While manning the bars, bartenders tap into a stash of libations, such as UV Whipped vodka and Patron Silver tequila, to mix their specialty cocktails. To further foster a sporting ambiance, high-definition TVs glow with sports games and custom music-video playlists, and guests partake in pastimes of ump bashing, billiards, or competitive people watching.

For 23 years, the manager of Break Time Billiards & Sports Bar has been surrounded by the murmurs of friendly chatter and clacking of pool balls that define a billiard room. But unlike the style of a traditional billiard room, his serves hearty Italian-American fare from local landmark Carmine's Restaurant for groups to enjoy while they play. It would seem there are surprises around every corner, because far from simply providing billiards, the fully equipped, smoke-free establishment also boasts dart lanes, electronic games, and a constant stream of sports broadcast on the myriad big-screen televisions.
For all its extras, however, Break Time Billiards & Sports Bar still has the feeling of a classic, upscale billiard room. Designed by avid players and sports enthusiasts, the layout leaves plenty of room between its Diamond professional tables to prevent annoying collisions.
The vibrant blues, greens, reds, and yellows of The Oasis Cafe's exterior reflect the playful, casual vibe of the outdoor eatery's staff and menu. In the fresh air, bands take to the stage, and DJs spin tunes that send the locals into fits of spontaneous fist-pumping and working up their nerve to ask one of the potted palms for its digits. To complement the comfort fare—cheesesteaks, house-made burgers, wings, and hand-cut fries—bartenders pour frosty drafts or pop the tops off a selection of bottled brews.
The Idiot Box Comedy Club has a smart focus: to nurture local comedians. That's why it keeps area comics on its roster, giving them ample opportunity to share the stage with national headliners such as Last Comic Standing finalist Myq Kaplan. The club also hosts weekly improv shows starring the award-winning Idiot Boxers, a community-based troupe that's been crafting extemporaneous comedy scenes for more than 10 years. And to help keep their ranks growing, these improvisors hold classes to teach burgeoning funny people and kids who accidentally broke a window how to think on their feet.
Fat Dog's Grille & Pub serves fresh, made-to-order, quality pub food?think wings, lean ground beef burgers, and sandwiches?in a lively casual atmosphere.
