Infusion Lounge's menu of savory appetizers fuels energetic bouts of dancing on two distinct dance floors, each featuring the sound stylings of a rotating cast of DJs. The hoisin mayo of Hawaiian rolls disguises seasoned pork from overly flirtatious taste buds in the Pan-Asian sliders ($7), and wasabi-infused spinach dip adds zing to wonton strips ($5). Meanwhile, slow-cooked short ribs marinated in a Thai dry rub ($21) combine to form a house-specialty plate that pairs well with a glass of wine. Before stepping out on the dance floor or wandering into the sunset, sip one of Infusion Lounge's nine specialty cocktails, such as the refreshing ginger lemon drop ($12) or the Veev-Acai-accented Fountain of Youth ($11).

Saddle Ranch Chop House allows diners to put together a feast from a menu loaded with steaks and salads, then rock and ride with the restaurant's "rock meets Western" theme. Chow on a sizzling steak, such as the charbroiled, marble-cut rib eye ($24.99), or chomp into the pineapple teriyaki burger, served with a wasabi cream sauce ($11.99). To wash down a full order of barbecue baby back ribs ($21.99), take part in the Texas Tea Party, a stiff concoction of vodka, gin, rum, tequila, sweet-and-sour mix, and Coke. Saddle Ranch Chop House's seasoned chefs also cook breakfast and brunchy grub, such as cinnamon swirl Texas toast ($9.99) and buttermilk pancakes topped with fresh fruit ($8.99), until 3 p.m.

For more than 43 years, Oil Can Harry's has teemed with disco dancers, cocktail drinkers, and socialites who arrive nightly to bask in the club’s rollicking atmosphere. Owner Bob Tomasino left behind his career as a math teacher to turn up the volume at the lively nightspot, which hosts a myriad of diversions and special events that include spirited line dances, Diana Ross impersonators, and the annual Mr. Oil Can Leatherman competition. Cocktails and bottles of domestic beer clink to the beats of show tunes and karaoke ballads in the upstairs lounge, and complimentary snacks line the bar during weekday happy hours. An all-you-can-eat Sunday brunch—complete with a glass of champagne—staves off appetites worked up while dancing at Oil Can Harry's Saturday-night disco parties or attempting to outrun the sun at dawn.
