Bowling at Sparetimes is all about fun and convenience. Bumpers in each of the 32 lanes rise and fall with ease so that parents and children can share a lane, and an automatic scoring system keeps track of frames as pins clatter to the floor. The snack bar provides sustenance in the form of pizza and sandwiches, while the arcade offers a chance to stretch out fingers on both hands. Bowlers also take a break between games at the Winners Circle sports bar, where they can continue enjoy a game of pool or electronic darts. On the weekends, the lights go low during glow bowl, when music videos take over the two 10‘x12’ screens hanging above the lanes and black lights give white T-shirts a bluish gleam so that they can be used to direct approaching UFOs to the parking lot.

The dedicated pet counselors at Camp Care-A-Lot nurture furry friends during supervised play dates and classes, as well as an array of pet-pampering services. Drop Fido off for doggy daycare ($11 half-day; $22 day) to allow the pup to socialize with other canine campers as they enjoy two indoor playgrounds, an outdoor yard, and the occasional poetry slam. Overnight boarding ($25–$90 per night) gives four-legged pals full access to the playgrounds before they doze off for the night on a comfy orthopedic bed; felines staying the night ($11–26 per night) get a personal litter box and can enjoy sweet dreams about laser pointers. For a clean and healthy pet, grooming services include an oatmeal shampoo ($5), a nail trim ($10), and teeth brushing ($10) to freshen breath, reduce tartar, boost the dog’s dating life, and aid in the deterrence of periodontal disease.
Whether it's for a routine trim or an extended stay, each visit to Femmes & Fidos begins with a furry version of a red-carpet welcome. Pet pros—all of whom are American Red Cross Pet CPR certified—start with a bit of playtime to get pups happy and relaxed while consulting their people about the dogs’ habits, behavior, and general knee-high outlook on life. Paws ease into padded bathtubs designed to simulate the feel of a mud-hole full of chicken broth and onto cushioned grooming tables. After they've been groomed and re-fluffed, pets romp into their owners' arms smelling lightly of essential-oil-based, aromatherapeutic bath products. Boarding guests snuggle and socialize in lattice-fenced play areas selected to suit their temperament, even if they're aging, anxiety-prone, or behaviorally challenged; the Pet Sitters International members specialize in handling hard-to-please canines.
