Things To Do In Derby

  • Little Busters Sports Bar
    Neon beer signs cast blue, green, and red light across the black ceiling, and tables populate with okra, mushrooms, and cauliflower starters—all deep fried to a golden crunch. An enormous projection TV broadcasts the latest game amid the pulse of a jukebox, and several flat screens promote revelry at the weathered wooden bar. For more than 20 years, this casual sports bar has unleashed its signature third-pound burgers on Derby, topping them with everything from whole grilled-cheese sandwiches to chili and nacho cheese. After two-handing hot dogs or brisket sandwiches, guests can test their motor skills with the bar's free Xbox 360 with Kinect game base, or improve their coolness quotient by ordering the trendiest new summer drink: water on the rocks.

  • Hidden Lakes Golf Course
    A chain of lakes runs through Hidden Lakes Golf Course, intersecting the land from the southwest to the northwest corner. When surveying the plot ahead of the course's 1958 opening, architect Floyd Farley wanted to capitalize on the chain's natural landscape, and wove the 18 holes around and over the waterways to present a sense of challenge and surprise. The course name arose organically out of the layout, as did a popularity with golfers that continues to this day. Water is in play on ten holes around the 6,773-yard layout, and trees crowd the fairways on a good deal more. For a better shot at conquering the course or at least posting scores closer to the par of 72, players may need to put some time in at the practice center. Here they can hone accuracy with drivers and irons on the driving range, and build an intimidating aura with forward, backward, and between-the-legs putting strokes on the pair of large practice putting greens.

  • Central Kansas Reptile Show
    There are dragons in central Kansas. Granted, they're pet bearded dragons, not the fire-breathers from myths, but that doesn't stop people from clamoring for them. The dragons—lovingly called "beardies"—will join other be-scaled brethren at the Central Kansas Reptile Expo. This two-day convention, sponsored by Tails & Scales Pet Shop, will showcase snakes, lizards, and insects at the Best Western in Wichita. Guests can meet a live gecko or watch a python curl up in a massive spiral like the most adept yogi. The expo will also feature vendor booths with reptile supplies from business such as Python Pros, Sabala Serpents, and Python in a Pear Tree, as well as accessories for human companions that include jewelry and snakeskin bags. Proceeds from an onsite auction will benefit the United States Association of Reptile Keepers, which protects and raises awareness for herpetofauna.

  • Mobile GameDen
    What do you get when you take the newest gaming consoles, 55-inch televisions, classic games, and load them all up inside a giant truck? That's what Jason and Wendy Brines decided to find out when they founded Mobile GameDen in 2011. Unlike traditional arcades, Mobile GameDen brings the excitement straight to customers' doorsteps. Their gaming truck can fit up to 24 players inside, but the fun doesn't stop there. They can also bring games of laser tag and archery tag (a combination of paintball and archery) to inspire even more competition. They even offer rides in a 10-foot human hamster ball that sends guests spinning. Now Mobile GameDen has expanded its gaming reach by organizing events that extend beyond the virtual fun zone. In 2013, its inaugural Pumpkin Palooza festival in Sedgwick County Park includes costume contests, pumpkin chunkin and painting, candy stations, and a live DJ.

  • Backbeat Percussion Studios
    When award-winning percussionist Paul Peterson isn't showcasing his rhythmic skills live, he trains budding beat keepers at Backbeat Percussion Studios. During private lessons, he focuses not only on more common instruments, such as drum sets and snare drums, but on what he calls total percussion. This encompasses most of an orchestra's percussion section, from the rumbling timpani to the soft patter of two pillows banging against one another. Such well roundness lends Paul's students an advantage as they audition for ensembles such as drum lines or all-state orchestras. Equally useful are Paul's group lessons, where activities like drum circles help pupils adjust to playing with other musicians.
