The Royal Palms Shuffleboard Club is an extremely low key place that invites its guests to step out of their normal happy hour routine and try something new for a change. If you have no clue of what shuffleboard is, here's the gist: you push a weighted puck down a court with broom-shaped paddles—not too hard—hoping it lands on the most points possible. The  thing that makes the Royal Palms stand out is the availability to make shuffleboard a drinking game. The place offers cocktail specials, delicious food trucks for some grub, and a massive space so that no one gets in your way.  Be spontaneous for a change and head out to the shuffleboard lanes. — Cedric Hall
