The friendly team of peddling professionals at Devil's Gear include certified mechanics who diagnose the aches and pains of bi-cycles in a repair assessment, before administering the required TLC to get it up and running as faithfully as the day it followed you home. The shop's expertise in everything from flats to proper fit adjustment, as well as their ability to service bikes of every make, model, age, and blood type helps explain why they've earned the title of New Haven's Best Bike Shop 2010 by readers of The New Haven Advocate. While this deal is good toward labor services only, Devil's Gear also offers a fleet of rentable bikes ($25.99 a day) to keep cycle-dependent riders from spinning their wheels until their precious velocipedes get back on their feet, though most repairs can be completed in one day.

Relaxing and working out don't usually go hand-in-hand, but things aren't usual at The Sports Center at Chelsea Piers.

Inside the workout space, classes such as yoga and the barre method emphasize the mind-body connection. The Nalini Method classes also push students toward inner harmony with a combination of Pilates, aerobics, barre work, and yoga, helping students de-stress while toning limbs and burning calories without ever tossing any cheesecakes into open flames.

Laser Planet's sprawling facility hosts a trio of attractions: laser tag, black-light mini golf, and an arcade. Competitors don vests and equip their laser-emitting weapons before heading into the multi-level laser-tag arena, where they'll be met with techno music, fog, and strobe lights, as they navigate corridors and attempt to tag the other team in a game of PowerPoint de la muerte. Or, they can head to the mini-golf arena, where black lights illuminate bright colors, aliens, and astronauts positioned around the 10-hole course. Elsewhere, a video arcade presents digital challenges, as players grab joysticks and mash buttons gleefully. Additionally, Laser Planet also offers a host of parties and events, ranging from all-night lock-ins, to corporate team building, to birthdays.
