The Party Suite eases the planning of birthday, graduation, or retirement parties with its private hall, onsite kitchen, and entertainment options. Kids can tumble around in the indoor suite's bounce house or zip down its slide, and adults can grab the karaoke machine's wireless microphone and read off interesting facts on Snapple caps. Plus, they don't even have to pay more to do so because the karaoke machine, as well as the bounce house and slide, are included with the rental of the party hall, along with tables and chairs that can seat up to 48.
At one of J 'n C Archery's four indoor lanes, an archer stands at the ready. He releases the string on his bow and the tension sends the arrow shooting forward. The arrow slices through the air, hitting the target with a loud thrup.
Archers deliver straight shots like this all the time at J 'n C Archery, where 25-yard lanes and a digital video target provide a challenge to shooters of all skill levels and dimensions. The shop also provides lessons to those who want to improve their technique and sells Genesis bows, Spyderweb targets, and Winchester archery equipment.
Saluting 86 historic horses and 141 of their human counterparts, the American Quarter Horse Hall of Fame & Museum is a sprawling 45,000 square feet of equestrian exhibits and attractions in a sleek, modern space. Towering bronze statues of noble steeds greet knowledge-thirsty museum-goers next to the Wall of Honor, a commemorative mural that varies its appearance depending on the direction from which its viewed. Inductees get their props in the elegant Grand Hall, where rock columns support high ceilings above a floor etched with genealogies of famous horse heroes and the jealous tears of overshadowed mule villains. Voyage further into the lives of game-changing mares, stallions, and stallion people in the timeline exhibit, full of glass-encased artifacts and photography, audio recordings from hall-of-famers' own brethren, and the technologically-advanced, multimedia Champion's Gallery, which recreates events such as glory-bestowing races and the American Quarter Horse World Championship Show.
From reading tablature to molding axe-wielding masters, Amarillo Guitar Lessons improves the play of aspiring guitarists of all ages and experience levels. With a music education degree from West Texas A&M University, primary instructor Tim McGaughy has been teaching since the late 1970s and has played guitar in local bluegrass bands and the Amarillo Symphony. With an individual evaluation to set a starting point, McGaughy can tutor musical neophytes and retired rockers in virtually any style, including bluegrass, folk/traditional, classical, jazz, and rock. During half-hour classes, six-stringers will learn how to tune the instrument and read musical notation, as well as how to avoid bad habits such as holding the guitar incorrectly or strumming with drumsticks. String-picking students should bring their own guitars and schedule lessons within four to six weeks of their first appointment.
Novice calorie burners and ripped Michelangelo models alike can benefit from a one-month membership at Anytime Fitness, which equips active bodies with enough treadmills, cycles, elliptical machines, and weights to make them robust enough to run a marathon inside of a swimming pool filled with mud. A free fitness orientation, offered to each new member, helps determine an optimal fat-frying and muscle-mass-magnifying program, while schooling workout novices on proper form and equipment use. Anytime Fitness's open schedule makes sure you have no excuses to not get in shape—unlike its competitor, Nevertime Fitness, which only opens its single Barrow, Alaska, location during solar eclipses.
The Fitness Lounge encourages outer and inner health in a workout-gym environment with the personality of an intimate studio. Inventive and stimulating classes like Piloxing (which combines Pilates and boxing), Flirty Tease & Tone, Core Cycling, and Relax & Revive Yoga keep muscles from getting bored and texting stretch jokes to their friends during class. Instructors—all certified in their fitness specialty—tailor workouts to individuals’ goals and shoelace length. Food and human reconcile their differences during a nutrition consultation to determine challenges and goals. Follow-up sessions, held either at the gym or in a living room, restaurant, grocery store, or cornfield of the customer's choice, inspire food choices that are both healthy and tasty. The Fitness Lounge’s pep talks, menu parsing, and progress reports work in conjunction with fitness classes to decrease weight and ramp up energy.
