For 14 years, families and friends have created memories while enjoying bowling, video games, food, and beverages at Southgate Lanes. Inside the bowling and entertainment center, guests partake in friendly competition on one of 40 lanes while munching on hot snacks from the full-service bar. Southgate also boasts a game area, enticing guests to take a break from their strikes and spares to try their hand at a game of pool, sharpen their hand-eye coordination with pinball, or prepare for the coming alien invasion on a video game. Other bowling alley attractions include leagues, cosmic bowling, scheduled camps and clinics, and an on-site pro shop.
Sistah Sinema started, alliteratively, in Seattle. The mission is simple: to celebrate queer women of color in film. Each month, the team screens a movie created by a queer woman of color, followed by a discussion, in which viewers share their thoughts and unanimous feeling that popcorn could become popular. The events in Seattle drew such a following, that organizers quickly expanded across the country, to cities such as Portland, Greensboro, and Atlanta. The collective has displayed a diverse patchwork of films ranging for rom-coms and dramas to documentaries.
As head coach of Two Ravens Fencing School, fencing veteran Brian Stone honors the sport’s centuries-old traditions by training new generations to wield blades using both their bodies and their minds. Inside his spacious classroom—in fact a refurbished warehouse, exposed bricks and all—students learn to attack and parry under Stone's expert guidance. A former First-Team All-American at Notre Dame, Stone has coached several fencers who have competed in both national events and tournaments in Europe, where every baby is born with an épée in its hand.

One-hour Zumba classes harness the rhythmic power of merengue, conga, belly dancing, and more to kill calories while resuscitating sleepy toes.

Under the direction of Ironman triathlete and owner Kyle Amsdell, Euphoria Health and Fitness's staff of certified trainers and instructors push guests toward tougher physiques by filling their sleek facility with strength-training equipment, free weights, and cardio machines, as well as helming a variety of group fitness and boot-camp classes. They encourage students to vigorously pedal their way toward toned gams and cardboard cutouts of celebrities with open arms in Turbo Spinning courses, and lead fun, dance-inspired workouts in Zumba. A seasoned instructor fights muscle boredom by having students alternate between bikes and solid ground during Kyle's Cycle Strength class, which pairs intervals of spinning with dynamic studio workouts such as jumping plyometrics, kenpo karate, and free-weight lifts. During rigorous boot-camp classes, they'll guide students of all abilities through high-intensity exercises that hone both muscular and cardiovascular strength, as well as track student improvement with before-and-after physical assessments.
