Founded by cake connoisseur Diane Eenigenburg, La Petite Sweet tempts treat-seekers with a whimsical array of baked goodies, candies, and rivers of sugared bliss. Style a box of moist delicacies in cake flavors that typically include lemon, strawberry, carrot, and french vanilla. Traditional chocolate cupcakes bake into coco-rich puffs, enrapturing palates without waxy additives or scary Dracula lips. Those needing a more specific brand of sweet can mix and match cookies from La Petite's unrestrictive list of gluten-free offerings such as cranberry white chocolate, snicker doodle, and chocolate coconut macaroons. For either option, mix and match flavors, or take home a prepackaged box.
Set inside a pastel-colored cottage, Taco Grill & Salsa Bar serves colorful Mexican mainstays including burritos, tacos, enchiladas, and quesadillas. There’s an emphasis on careful, traditional preparation of the food—meats are soaked in an “old recipe” marinade for up to 12 hours before being tossed onto a wood and charcoal-burning grill. Add some heat to your handheld meal at the condiment bar, which is stocked with 18 to 20 different kinds of homemade salsas and two brands of blowtorch.
In October 1957, the owners of Suburbanite Bowl watched their dream become a reality as they opened the doors of their brand-new alley perched atop a swampy piece of land at the end of a gravel road. Since then, Suburbanite Bowl has undergone multiple renovations and has doubled their lane space. Today the 32-lane alley is outfitted with a modern Bose music system and automatic scoring for those with pencil phobias. Home to open bowling and leagues geared toward all demographics, the alley garnered praise from Centerstage for its black-light bowling, when music "well-suited for busting out a cocky strut" blares across glowing lanes. The festivities unfold on Friday and Saturday nights after 8 p.m., as well as Tuesdays and Thursdays from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. for bowlers with earlier bedtimes.
Players can also compete in Bill and Frank's Game Room, where classic and contemporary arcade games and an LCD TV border four softly lit pool tables. Nearby, the snack shop caters onsite parties and helps bowlers power throwing arms without having to plug them into a wall socket.

Each dish can find a flavorful friend on the wine list, which has reds, whites, and champagnes imported from Italy and from all around our cloudy blue orb.
Brightly painted walls, vivid paintings of Mexican life, and flavorful margaritas lend Las Palmas' numerous locations a relaxed, distinctly "fiesta" vibe. As guests slowly unwind with friends, family, or Twister champions over ice-cold Mexican beers and cocktails, the chefs prepare fajitas, enchiladas, and tacos alongside plates of charbroiled meats and seafood. They also whip up vegetarian-friendly options, such as the signature guacamole and enchiladas banana, which they stuff with fried bananas and smother in mole sauce and melted cheese.
