The National Packard Museum preserves the Detroit-made Packards from 1903 to 1956, famous for their white-walled tires and art-deco chrome hood ornaments. The car of choice for statesmen and actors, the meticulously maintained Packards populate the National Packard Museum?s halls and exhibits. And they range from all eras, from the 1900 Model B to limousines, ambulances, and convertibles from the 1950s. Museum visitors learn how the Packard line advanced vehicular safety standards and how the company implemented design innovations, such as the steering wheel. Auto enthusiasts will also find the National Packard Museum replete with historical photographs, product catalogs, and company documents, which reveal plans to create a car that could be driven by super-intelligent muskrats by 1992.
At each of its Cleveland-area locations, Freeway Lanes allows bowlers to hone gutter-hugging curves. In addition to traditional, tenpin lanes, the alleys host indoor bocce ball courts and pool tables for players tired of breaking cues on 16-pound balls. Their expansive facilities also feature modern bowling amenities along with HD television screens and full-service restaurants. League opportunities are available for children, adults, and seniors and live bands frequent the alleys, filling the air with original melodies and providing just enough bass to knock down wobbling pins.
When it comes to chicken wing sauces, Wing Warehouse has almost everyone's preference covered. Sweet, hot, dry rub, and "unbelievably hot" options dot the menu and include honey mustard, Caribbean Hot, Spicy Cajun, and Scorcher, which is made with ghost chili pepper. Local and imported beers give mouths a respite from the heat, as do burgers, sandwiches, and wraps.
Dipson Theatres celebrates a reputation as a regional movie institution with a network of 12 locations lighting 57 silver screens across Michigan, New York, and Pennsylvania. Though the company now spreads across the northeast United States, it began in the small city of Batavia, NY, in 1939—a time when movies were called “picture shows,” Roosevelt was in the White House, and everybody could only see in black and white. Today that tradition underlies the cinematic experience as patrons chomp popcorn and sip sodas, marveling at modern 3-D visual adventures, summer action movies, family-friendly features, or even indie art flicks and footage from world-renowned opera performances.
Jergel’s Rhythm Grille satisfies cravings. Whether a person is thirsting for a cold beer, hungering for a burger with pineapple on it, or hankering to hear their favorite song without their child providing arrhythmic percussion on an empty pot, they can find it in the two-story venue and eatery. At the head of the 17,000-square-foot space, a stage carries live shows by both national and regional acts, while audiences dance under colored lights or sit off to the side in a private booth with a shareable plate of seared duck breast. And those craving fresh air and quiet can find their goods on the outdoor patio, where they can sip a glass of wine and explore the rest of the menu's gourmet comfort fare.
