Games of Keno or Texas hold'em add a bit of risk to a night at Locals Bar & Grill—unlike the menu of comfort-food classics, such as hand-cut fries piled next to similarly handcrafted burgers. Ten-inch personal pizzas come with custom toppings that range from bacon to banana peppers. Chicken wings are served by the pound and are also customizable, featuring lemon-pepper, honey-barbecue, and other sauces. Tacos, nachos supreme, deviled eggs, and homemade chili round out the menu.

During the 45-minute video consultation, a Georgia Billiard Academy instructor leads students as young as six years old through fundamentals and drills while recording the students’ motions from three angles, gauging their skill level, and offering criticism. One-on-one training sessions, where instruction is based on the data gathered from the consultation, include drills and tips that will help students earn street cred in streets where cred is solely based on being good at pool. While GBA's Saturday morning appointments are reserved for junior players, those older than 13 can schedule appointments from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday–Friday and until 6 p.m. on Saturdays.

At first glance, it’s hard to believe that The Roswell Tap’s building is more than 100 years old. Pals and business partners Sean McDonough, Michael Rozmajzl, and Ron Harvey have worked hard to restore the two-story home, enhancing its original wood beams and hardwoods and adding modern touches such as a second-floor lounge and an expansive deck out back. Today, refurbished red stairs lead to the front door, where the Tap's skilled kitchen staff prepares comfort food from neighborhoods across the states. Smoked salmon board, fish-n-chips, Tap Pittsburgh salad, and southern sliders topped with collard greens and friend green tomatoes grace the vast dinner menu. At lunch, an express service simplifies things with sandwich-and-salad combos as well as half a dozen wings dressed eight ways.

The Roswell Tap encourages patrons to stick around after dinner with plenty of late-night snacks and weekly events, including a singer-songwriter series. Held every Tuesday, the series welcomes crooners to take the stage and compete for cash prizes or the chance to receive a firm, satisfying handshake and a gig for a Friday or Saturday night at the Tap. As others perform, customers can kick back with a signature tap tea drink, infused with tequila or vodka or an irish coffee.

Drawing upon his 16 years of experience cooking Asian and Mediterranean cuisines, Chef Zhe fills Tokyo Boat 2's menu with an eclectic array of dishes that draws inspiration from Korea, Thailand, and Japan. The Japanese influences are the most readily apparent, as evidenced the extensive selection of sushi rolls and the broiled meats in housemade teriyaki sauce. Even the hibachi chefs combine traditional cooking techniques with a bit of modern showmanship as they sear orders of red snapper, steak, or vegetables on tabletop grills while a small audience of diners watches the impressive displays of dexterity.

Although the occasional burst of flame erupts from the hibachi stations' grill surfaces, the areas are mostly lit by a modern collection of blue pendant lamps that dangle above the diners. The sleek metal surfaces and exhaust hoods stand in contrast to the simple wooden shelving of the sushi bar, which lies just behind a jet-black counter where guests can sit and watch as the chefs slice nigiri, roll maki, and mold rice into snowmen during the warmer seasons.
