BounceU welcomes kids to descend upon an inflatable, climate-controlled playground where they can bounce and ricochet in safety. Along with birthday parties and group outings, BounceU hosts open-bounce sessions that let sock wearers of all ages imagine they're synchronized leapers in a futuristic moon performance as they carom around the inflatable stadium, expending energy with every leap. Adults are welcome to act like 8-year-olds and join the vivacious youngsters in the playground.
The inflatable arena also opens its buoyant doors to day camps, where boys and girls ages 5–10 spend half their time with brain-bolstering projects such as painting or reprogramming the remote to skip all news channels. After stretching the limits of their imaginations, kids then spend the other half of the day stretching the limits of their limbs on the inflatable playground.
The professional, classically trained instructors at Noble Art Institute of Music edify instrument wranglers with in-depth music lessons. Students ages 3 and up tuck into one-on-one sessions with degreed teachers. Each lesson is customized to the participant's level and based upon his or her needs, teaching classical-guitar students to master chords, piano scholars to sail through scales, and vocal apprentices to tailor their arias to a particular concert hall or elevator. Those who continue at the school can participate in year-round events, such as recitals, chamber-music ensembles, community-service gatherings, and clandestine hoedowns, which strictly forbid sheet music.

Mothers Bar & Grille kidnaps familiar pub cuisine and takes it on a creative joyride. Fuse the best of breakfast and barbecue with the Mothers burger ($9.99), which lands a fried egg squarely on top of a bacon cheeseburger helipad. Mothers famous wings ($7.99 for 12) arrive sweetly slathered in one of six dipping sauces, including Mothers' notorious suicide sauce. Vegetarians can take refuge in the fresh-mozzarella-and-tomato salad ($6.99), or the garlic fries ($4.99), which splash amid thick puddles of Mothers' homemade garlic sauce. Though brick walls and a lacquered wood bar sweat out classic pub ambience, Mothers is also family friendly, with a kids’ menu of five special dishes free of Lego stacked sandwiches. Under the direction of brothers Phil, Joe, Tony, and Michael Simonetta, patrons working on their synchronized chewing routines are regularly greeted by live local bands weekly, poker tournaments, and even salsa-dancing classes.
