There are bowling alleys, and there are bowling super highways. With 600 pins creating a satisfying, nearly constant thunder, Forum Bowling Lanes could be considered the latter. Since 1974 the Grand Prairie institution has welcomed strike-seeking families and competitors to its 60 lanes, and although it recently underwent a remodel, it retains its vintage feel. Classic bowling is the name of the game here, with a straightforward style that allows players to focus on the frames. And after the final throw, they can relax with a drink in Forum’s cafe and lounge or head to the pro shop to pick up essential bowling gear such as balls and air horns for distracting opponents.

Forum Roller World’s vast polished hardwood floor stretches below a similarly vast ceiling outfitted with festive lights. And between the two? A scrum of roller skaters gliding, weaving, and figure-eighting to the tune of music such as hip-hop and gospel. This large facility welcomes skaters of all levels to slip into a pair of skates and cruise the floors. On Sunday nights until 1 a.m., adults rule the roost, where they can skate at their own speed without having to dodge children or re-oil their training wheels.

For the guests of Maximum Sports Connection, a Dallas Cowboys game actually starts three hours before kickoff. For both home and away games, the company hosts all-inclusive tailgate parties—with or without tickets to the game itself—that keep revelers sustained with burgers, brats, drinks, and raffles for Cowboys merchandise. Customers can dress the part with apparel from the online store to show off their fandom or eerie resemblance to Troy Aikman to current and former players during private autograph sessions.

In addition to game-day events, Maximum Sports Connection also hosts Saturday-night dinner parties where fans come together to break bread as sportswriter Mickey Spagnola and former Cowboy Nate Newton broadcast their weekly radio program, Radio Road Show. Stadium tours the day before or after a game enable fans to guide themselves throughout Cowboys Stadium, while off-season trips such as a weekend in the Bahamas give fans the chance to draw up defensive plays in the sand with current and former Cowboys.
