There's nothing quite like getting a good show with dinner, but unfortunately Cougar Town's only on once a week, and you're already at your ideal weight, and smoking effing hot. Giving you a sexier production with your meal, Fuzion Showcase Lounge.
Opening Thursday in the former music lounge Sugarhill, Fuzion's an all-week provider of entertainment and eats, remodeled w/ an extended stage rocking a huge multi-paneled TV screen where live bands, comedians, and even talented staff members will perform, plus an upstairs "VIP Celebrity Skybar" with a secret button setting off a red light outside that flashes to get you serviced, so it's already working better than your open trenchcoat. Emeril-trained "Chef O'Neal" will be whipping up starters like bacon-wrapped scallops and a white-wine-sauteed hot shrimp cocktail, while entrees range from bistro medallion steak (pressed in black peppercorns), to pan-seared pork chops, to garlic-cream-sauced shrimp they call "Slow & Sexy", also a nickname for DiCaprio in Gilbert Grape. Recurring events include "Brunch & A Movie" Sundays (w/ live jazz afterwards) and comedy on Thursdays & Fridays followed by old-school/R&B, plus every day from 4:30-8pm the chef'll bring out the kitchen to the main floor & cook in the open, and during breaks in any of that action, Fuzion staff's encouraged to get up and show their skills; the owners say they "have to be able to entertain anyone", so clearly they just cloned Max from Saved By the Bell.
Hit the full bar for beers & cocktails like the eponymous "Fuzion" (vodka, rum, melon liqueur, OJ, pine juice, grenadine), then enjoy a stogie in the Cognac/cigar lounge or slide over to the blue-lit/-painted hookah room -- now that you're able to eat delicious, rich dinners every night, it's likely this'll be your only opportunity to be smoking.
