Under the umbrella of The Bowling Proprietors' Association of North Jersey, an eclectic group of alleys work together to fill the region with the thunder of scattering pins. At most of Bowling Proprietors' bowling centers, bowlers keep track of pummeled pins with automatic scoring, and bumpers, which arrive at the call of a button, keep balls on course without filling the gutters with retired VCRs. Snack bars at some locations bolster ravenous bowlers, and game rooms in select centers keep hand-eye coordination in peak condition. Free WiFi is available in some centers so that winners can exercise bragging rights.
Keeping up with the latest industry and fashion trends is a priority for the stylists and aestheticians at Studio 360 Salon. With this knowledge always at-hand, they can help their clients develop flattering new looks, whether they're looking for a basic trim or a dramatic change.

Beyond styling hair, the team can also indulge clients with rejuvenating facials, waxing sessions, or body wraps that nourish the skin with nutrients and crumbled multivitamins.
Each year, the coaches from Kiddie Soccer introduce thousands of children between the ages of 3.5 and 6 to the most popular team sport in the world—soccer—through safe, fun classes in a constructive environment. For the first 50 minutes of each session, groups of up to 12 kids engage in team-building games such as Red Light Green Light or Sharks and Minnows to build physical and cooperative skills and, above all, have fun. Kids then split off into teams for a 10-minute friendly competition, enjoying themselves while learning teamwork under the coach's watchful, supportive eye.
Director Theresa Rowland dedicated herself to yoga after being introduced to it by her mother, learning Iyengar yoga from BKS Iyengar himself and pursuing studies in therapeutic recreation and movement therapy. Employing an extensive roster of instructors, Theresa's studio hosts eclectic classes for all levels of students and trains aspiring Iyengar yoga instructors. In addition to meditation and yoga sessions, which promote self-awareness, the studio also offers fitness-oriented workouts, such as Pilates and Zumba. During class, Studio Yoga's childcare services can keep an eye on students' toddlers or needy house plants.
The Concert Hall at Drew University, located in the Dorothy Young Center for the Arts, is a top-quality venue whose precisely designed interior exudes an austere aesthetic atmosphere to complement its bell-clear acoustics. Unlike large outdoor amphitheaters, there is no AstroTurf lawn with hacky sack pits and hemp-woven Jimmy Carter effigies, so all audience members are guaranteed an actual chair and a solid view of the pianist. Great for a romantic evening out, or a lone venture into the mellifluous world of long-dead Europeans, a performance by Ivana Ristova guarantees aural bliss.
You’ve got to love a restaurant that doesn’t try to be all things to all people, that takes a stand, picks just a few things, and cooks them really, really well. That, in a nutshell, is what Stony’s does for burgers and hot dogs—and boy is South Orange all the better for it.
