The City of Melvindale's Civic Ice Arena is home to two rinks of ice for skaters to glide across during figure skating classes, hockey leagues, or open skate sessions. Novices can get their start toward bladed glory through a Learn to Skate class, wherein a skilled and patient instructor breaks down the activity's basic techniques for eager students. With entry-level skills firmly in their grasp, the skaters can enroll in a hockey league for adults or youth in order to add the skills of checking, scoring, and dodging hurled octopi to their repertoire.

Exo's talented staffers beautify clients from head to toe with a full menu of grooming services. During the shellac manicure (a $35 value), nail technicians buff finger shingles to a dazzling sparkle before brushing on CND shellac color. The high-tech lacquer lasts up to two weeks with a glistening mirror finish, which dries instantly under the onslaught of British knock-knock jokes. This option also grants wrist mitts a thorough mollycoddling with a moisturizing paraffin dip treatment, which also includes exfoliation to force has-been skin cells into retirement.

The Bogey Golf Tour grants golfers a chance to take to the links and compete against fellow amateurs in tournaments scheduled at some of the finest courses in the London, Windsor, Detroit, and Kitchener/Waterloo areas. At each event, scratch golfers compete in the Birdie division, 0–15 handicaps square off in the Par division, and 16+ handicappers trade pinpoint approaches and sequined divot tools in the Bogey division. The top five finishers in each division receive prize money—which can be paid out in gift certificates or cash—and the Tour also holds prize competitions for longest drive, closest to the pin, and 3-iron jousting. The Tour publishes the results from each tournament in local newspapers, and players can chart the peaks and valleys of their careers on the Tour Members list, which compiles all of their tournament results. Along with providing an outlet for amateur golfers to exercise their long-suppressed competitive side, the Tour and its sponsors have raised $74,000 for various area charities since 2003.

The independently owned Community Bowling Centers accommodate bowlers of all ages and abilities, featuring bumper-equipped lanes and lightweight balls designed for the hands of pintsize players. At 10 smoke-free locations throughout the region, guests enjoy open hours in addition to league opportunities and special events. The onsite bar serves ice-cold cups of soda or beer, which guests may raise in toasts to friendship and man's ability to hydrate himself. On select evenings, the alley lights turn down and the ethereal illumination of Glow N Bowl takes over with laser-light shows and fog machines. As balls roll down phosphorescent lanes, a sound track of thumping beats and alien distress calls saturates the space.
