A longtime official photographer for United States Synchronized Swimming, Migz Media's head photographer designed a device that permitted him to snap underwater shots while staying dry on the pool deck. He now harnesses that same ingenuity while framing clients at a variety of sessions and events. Migz Media's talents run the gamut from capturing action shots at sporting events to framing candid wedding moments without having to disguise cameras as flower girls. Rather than taking weeks to develop images, they produce prints with a full-service touchscreen printing system they bring to each event, or e-mail purchased shots to clients. Studio shoots take advantage of a 30'x20' greenscreen that stretches from floor to ceiling—which photographers employ to digitally insert a choice of more than 10,000 backgrounds that includes still images and animated loops.

Kenmore Lanes is a safe haven for pin-pummeling patrons as they relish strikes and avert gutter balls on the stable of slick lanes. Participants can practice their rolling skills during open-bowl sessions or within the intergalactic realm of Friday and Saturday night moonlight bowling, where the lanes remain open until 2:30 a.m. and are entirely illumined by glowing blocks of radioactive cheese. Tykes celebrating their birthdays can launch orbs alongside friends during 90-minute party sessions, which include pizza, soda, and a gift for the guest of honor. A pro shop supplies attendees with custom-fit balls, bags, and shoes, and 10-week leagues encourage team camaraderie and passive aggressive celebrations after every strike. Kenmore Lanes' restaurant reenergizes postgame rollers with abundant eats, and visitors craving more competition can chalk up cues at the pool table or take on classic games at the arcade such as skee-ball.
