Oil Bowl Lanes opens its 32 lanes of rolling glory to pin pushers every day of the week. A one-hour lane rental pits quartets of players against one another to see who can garner the highest score based on pins felled and the secret 11th frame, which is judged on the overall style of post-strike moonwalks. Eight rental shoes lend their aid to earthbound extremities, and a full pitcher of soda bubbles with between-frame refreshment or postgame head-dunk opportunities. Spheres rumble down Oil Bowl’s alleys between retro-futuristic murals and cheery checkered floors.
Nail Candy Dream Spa and Salon’s team of beauty experts creates looks for nails that would make most mouths water with bright colors and tiny beads that resemble sugary sprinkles. Though the nail art that comes out the salon of may look good enough to eat, fingernails and toenails are not and never will be edible. The custom looks can include 3-D flowers and even a small gold chain that connects two nails together. The one-stop location also deftly handles other beauty needs, with a full array of hair, eyelash, and makeup services, as well as an anti-aging time-travel machine.
The staff at New Balance isn't concerned with simply selling shoes—their mission is to pair customers with the footwear that will carry them comfortably through life’s arduous steps. Understanding that an ill-fitting pair of athletic shoes can cause pain to joints and potentially damage knees, hips, and the back, associates measure the length and width of each client's foot and conduct a gait analysis to chart the trajectory of their stride when walking normally or running through ball pits. The data are collected to help the staff match clients with their ideal shoe, keeping them running longer and looking good while doing so.
