Every Thursday, Comedy Hideaway ushers in a lineup of HBO– and Comedy Central–anointed performers, its stage still echoing with the bygone riffs of such national acts as Zach Galifianakis and Whitney Cummings. The club's founder, Andrey Belikov, often hosts and performs at the evening's revues, spinning impressions of his Ukrainian father and detailing his foibles in American society. Between sets, guests avail themselves of Petrini’s menu of Italian fare, sip laugh-loosening drinks, and stand in line for autographs from nationally touring microphone stands.

In bowling, the perfect strike requires a careful calculation of force, spin, and positioning—but Zodo's - Bowling & Beyond injects fun into the physics lesson with 24 gleaming lanes ready to take whatever you can throw at them, provided you've donned the proper fluorescent footwear (each rented shoe half-red, half-green).

Healthy competition and the joy of yelling 'strike!' are pretty entertaining all on their own, but Zodo's doesn't stop there—Glow Bowling's atmospheric touches include black lights, a live DJ, and fog. Twice-daily happy hours and 40 on-tap beers keep spirits high, and a menu of gourmet pizza, fresh salads, burgers, and more creative fare provide more sustenance than a feast of felled pins.

Sino West Performing Arts serves as the meeting place of two disciplines: dance and kung fu. Under the tutelage of four experienced instructors, kids and adults learn, hone, and perfect skills in a variety of art forms. Atop sprung floors of recycled rubber and beneath ceilings of repurposed clouds, they practice in one of two airy, well-lit studios. Curricula under the dance umbrella include Chinese dance, tai chi, ballet, Zumba, and yoga, while martial-arts practitioners take classes in Shaolin kung fu, MMA, and weaponry, among others. The class selection is diverse, but no matter the chosen course, enrollees report increased levels of confidence, self-discipline, and bragging rights.

When he’s not collaborating with Debbie Allan or with director Marty Thomas on music videos, Tamarr Paul stars as one-sixth of Rhythm Dance & Fitness Studios’ decorated staff. Mirrored walls reflect the studio’s honey-colored floors and the funky moves that emerge in dance classes. Beginning Hip-Hop pairs prancers with a new song and full choreography in each session, and Cardio Hip-Hop promises to elicit sweat droplets from the most advanced dancers. Urban Burlesque sends students sauntering through jazz moves. If the full schedule of drop-in dance classes isn't enough, experienced hot-footers can enlist in the Rhythm Dance Company, whose performers use their energetic shimmies to power the county's schools.

The Spanish architecture. The bustling wharf. The cerulean ocean.

Passengers take in the passing landmarks and 747 drag races from inside a Robinson R-44, helmed by commercial pilot Taylor Nancarrow.

A typical workout at SB Krav Maga can look intimidating at first––chokeholds, plastic training handguns, lightning-fast kicks in the gut––but after closer examination, the images lose their menace. Krav maga, a fighting technique designed by the Israeli army to transform civilians into soldiers as quickly and effectively as possible, focuses on learning self-defense against armed and unarmed assailants. Students jump right into learning the basics, working in small groups to refine techniques such as escaping from chokeholds, fending off multiple attackers, and women's self-defense techniques. High-intensity cardio drills are sprinkled throughout the classes that focus mostly on performing drills with a partner decked in pads.
