Power Plant - The strange but memorable name given to the shopping center just down Pine Chapel Road, one block from the Coliseum. McFaddens, Saddle Ridge and Saddle Ridge's more live music-oriented Cheyenne’s all share a block of store front right not to Cold Stone Creamery. Joe's Crab Shack and Lonestar Steakhouse and Saloon also rest in this shopping center if you wanted to grab a few drinks out with dinner before you head over to the bars. There are always plenty of taxi cabs and people to meet.

If you like pool, darts, or watching the game on a big screen - this is the place to be.
