Punch Bowl - Social Food & Drink, for example, is a 24,000-square-foot playpen for grownups to eat, drink and play in style. PBS offers diner-style food (think upscale burgers, fried chicken and macaroni and cheese), plus eight bowling lanes, shuffleboard, ping-pong, pinball and plenty of other games to keep you and your guests occupied for hours. And with breakfast starting at 7 a.m. weekdays, it's perfect for those East Coasters whose internal clocks haven't quite adjusted to Mountain Standard Time.
