When it comes to fun at Bowlmor Lanes, folks aren't locked into just bowling, though there's plenty of that. Glow-in-the-dark lanes and banquette seating beckon players to try their hand at bowling or chill out and order drinks and snacks from lane-side servers. But for the pin-weary, there are other forms of entertainment including billiards, air hockey, and ping pong for purchase. These myriad amenities make Bowlmor Lanes a destination for group get-togethers such as birthdays and "No-Kevins-Allowed" club meetings.

The highly anticipated college clash pits Virginia Tech against last year's WAC champion Boise State in what Rivals.com is calling the number one non-conference college football game of the 2010 season. Coming into this season, the Hokies are ranked number six in USA Today's coaches' poll, while the Broncos hold the number-five spot. Catch all the gridiron action from the stadium's party-deck, located at both end zones directly above the stadium's high-definition video boards. Once in the club-level zone, you and a fellow football fanatic have exclusive access to all the club-level amenities, including restaurants and bars, expansive lounges with plush leather chairs, and dozens of high-def televisions sprinkled throughout the area. Parking is included in the price of your Groupon.

Backed by more than 33 years of competitive rowing experience, Cindy Cole's training paces instill basic sculling techniques in beginners of all ages. Launching from Bladensburg Waterfront Park, rowboats slice through the serene waters of the Anacostia River like a straw in room-temperature butter. Sheltered banks deflect wind from gathering momentum, giving oarsfolk free rein of the typically uncrowded channel. After the lesson, rowers can picnic in the park, hike along the adjoining Tributary Trail System, or hunt for their vehicle in the free parking spaces. Class sizes are small for maximal instructor attention and minimal bumper-boat battle reenactments, and schedules sometimes flex based on demand and the needs of students.

Licensed professional tour guides could tell you about the design plan of the U.S. Capitol, the specifics of the congressional resolution to build the Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial, and the quotes engraved on the Franklin Delano Roosevelt Memorial. Or, they could show you.

Excellent Tours' four experienced guides share their knowledge of the capital during three narrated tours aboard vans, mini-buses, and coach buses. Each tour includes stops at the White House, Capitol building, Lincoln Memorial, and Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial, which is where the similarities end. Tours run at three different times and visit several different additional sights, such as the Thomas Jefferson Memorial and the World War II Memorial. During each excursion, guides divulge facts such as how President Theodore Roosevelt gave the White House its name in 1901, and why the engineer who laid the cornerstone of the Washington Monument used the same trowel George Washington used nearly a century earlier instead of the nice one his mother bought for him.

The chefs at Go Cook Vegan value healthy eating that is also healthy for the environment. As the name implies, they craft menus that are entirely vegetarian and vegan, and they use pesticide-free, organic produce sourced from local farmers' markets and co-ops to do it. Their menu includes nutrient-packed wraps, salads, appetizers, and small plates, but they accommodate custom requests as well, whipping up vegetarian and vegan dishes to suit all palates.

However, the chefs don't confine themselves to the kitchen: They also travel throughout Landover and Columbia, Maryland, to lead custom, small-group cooking classes. The sessions bring friends together while introducing them to an array of vegan and vegetarian cooking techniques. Sessions might focus on growing vegetables or cooking vegan or gluten-free meals, or introduce kids to fun and simple cooking techniques beyond making Play-doh noodles. Each class ends with a farm-to-table gourmet meal, during which guests are welcome to sips of complimentary wine and mimosas.
