At Van Houten Lanes, bowling balls thunder down the waxed stretches of 16 AMF synthetic lanes—and crash through the neat rows of AMF pins waiting at the end. All the while, an AMF automatic scoring system keeps an up-to-the-minute record of each player's successes and struggles. And yet bowling isn't all that this modern alley has to offer—a large-screen TV, pool table, and an internet-connected jukebox render the cocktail lounge comfortable enough to pass for "the new apartment" when parents come to visit. The bowling facility's café fuels play with cheesy calzones and signature Hoboken-style 32-inch pizzas—all of which can be washed down with craft beer from Flying Dog Brewing. Thanks to these ample amenities, including family-friendly touches such as lane bumpers, Van Houten Lanes frequently hosts events ranging from children's parties to fundraisers.

When the big game spills into overtime, the last words you want to hear are "last call." That's why Pub 46's bartenders stay on the safe side by whipping up mixed drinks and pouring beer until 3 a.m. every night. The kitchen closes at midnight, ending its daily feasts of American bar food staples such as handmade sausage-and-pepper pizzas, hot turkey sliders, and buckets of fried or broiled wings. Feasts unfold on the pub's outdoor, smoke-friendly patio or indoors amid more than 30 HDTVs tuned to everything from baseball and ultimate fighting to the reality hit Coolest Referee Coin Flips.

Gold-leaf writing inscribed across the towering red portico at the entrance to The Shannon Rose Irish Pub announces what one might expect to find inside: “Premium Stouts,” “Irish Whiskies,” and other culinary staples of the Emerald Isles. Behind this imposing entryway lies a series of dining rooms that have a markedly different effect; chandeliers create a sense of intimacy as they illuminate Gaelic artwork and aged hardcovers resting on lofty bookshelves.

At Passaic Bujinkan Buyu, adults and kids alike can partake in nine martial arts traditions, called Koryu, all based on ancient Japanese fighting techniques known as Ninjutsu. These traditions include skills such as blocks and double strikes, as well as traditional weaponry use of swords and ninja stars. With experienced instructors teaching the classes in a non-competitive atmosphere, students gain discipline and respect while learning to defend themselves effectively.

The royal-blue mat beckons fighters to test their skills, drawing on bujinkan budo taijutsu and ancient Japanese fighting techniques. But Bujinkan Bukeyashiki Dojo doesn't expect them to achieve the skills to succeed on their own. The dojo leads ninja classes for young kids, shinobi classes for teens, and self-defense classes for adults to get them prepared to strike, grapple, and manipulate joints, plus use weapons and survive against multiple attackers.
