When it comes to food and sports, it's hard to think of an area that Lu's Sports Bar & Lounge doesn't have covered. The night's biggest games and cutest team huddles not only flicker across the bar's massive 82-inch flat-screen, but also its eight 52-inch high-definition TVs. Those, in turn, surround Lu's potpourri of gaming stations: pinball machines, air hockey tables, dartboards, pool tables, and a shuffleboard court to top it all off.
Other gaming opportunities, such as video poker machines, await in Lu's lounge, which is equipped with its very own bar backed by more flat-screens. The main screens here, however, are dedicated to karaoke, which takes place every night.
Both bar and lounge stay open until 2:30 a.m. nightly, and accommodate patrons as they savor the mix of Chinese classics and American comfort food that emerges from Lu's kitchen. The menu mixes eastern dishes such as Szechwan shrimp with western staples including wings served dry or tossed in a choice of four sauces.
You'd never spot a cook uncapping a bottle of store-bought salsa or a robot frying up pork carnitas in the kitchen at El Guajillo Mexican Restaurant Bar & Grill. The chefs at this family-owned eatery insist on making their sauces and Mexican specialties themselves, from the pico de gallo to the crispy tortilla chips. When they're not chopping up fresh veggies for these house-made delicacies, they're folding fresh meats and veggies into enchiladas, burritos, and tortas, as well as showering tamales in red and green salsas. These versatile kitchen staffers also extend their culinary expertise towards pizzas, topping pies with homemade tomato sauce and specialty ingredients. To complement the diverse menu, the restaurant's bartenders blend a selection of tangy margaritas and fruity cocktails.
Videogame aficionados unite at Pixel Battles, where Xbox 360s, Wii Us, PlayStation 3s, Kinects, 3D gaming, and a retro room tempt fingers with the newest digital challenges. One of the only video game venues in the area allows players to cozy up to black leather chairs and plasma TV screens to test their skills. Gamers can settle into the latest games with friends on multiple plasma TV screens. In addition to individual gaming, Pixel Battles also hosts themed birthday parties, special events, and tournaments to help gamers battle in healthy competition.
Billy's Bar beckons diners with a menu of upscale pub fare and a fountain of locally made beer and wine. Drinking foursomes can imbibe 4-ounce samples of brew from the area discussing which has the best color, which pairs the best with pub fare, and which has more hops than a toddler drinking Mountain Dew. Couple mini malts with any of Billy's starters including smooth roasted garlic hummus, warming beef chili, and creamy baby mac 'n' cheese. Alternately, opt for the second deal to excavate the piping hot core of a steaming meat loaf entree ($9) or fling a pepperoni-topped gladiator pizza ($10) into a breadbasket during an impromptu frisbee-golf game with the next table over.
If you were to trace the origin of one of Jamba Juice’s freshly squeezed juices, it wouldn’t take long before you ended up face to face with its most important supplier: Mother Nature. Whole fruits and vegetables from her gardens, groves, and orchards fill Jamba Juice's stores: kale, apples, pineapple, carrots, beets, and other produce. Although it’s serious about filling cups with wholesome, natural ingredients, the company is a little more playful when it comes to the palate.
Sure, there are classic juices on the juice menu. Purely Carrot, for instance, which is as elemental and straightforward as it sounds. But there’s also the Tropical Greens, which combines apple juice and pineapple with super greens and chia seeds. And there’s Kale Orange Power, loaded with kale, bananas, and orange juice—all of which are packed with a serious helping of vitamins and manganese. Regardless of which flavor you choose, each 12-ounce juice packs in at least 1.5 servings of fruits and veggies, making it a convenient way to restore energy and get nutrition on the go. The same commitment to simplifying healthy eating can be found throughout the Jamba Juice menu, from its Fruit and Veggie smoothies to its Artisan Flatbreads.
In addition to providing healthy options to customers, Jamba Juice sponsors Team Up for a Healthy America. The initiative is focused on improving childhood nutrition and fitness by encouraging fans to join the Team Up community of celebrities, athletes and other leaders committed to helping the nation stay fit—which you can do by visiting the main Jamba Juice website.
With over 500 stores serving the full freshly squeezed juice menu, Jamba Juice is the perfect way to blend in the good.
