Bigger isn?t always better, and that's especially true at Koz?s Mini Bowl. As you might guess from the name, everything here is just a bit smaller, from the bowling balls to the little man who cleans up the pins. Practically the only thing that hasn't been scaled down is the sense of competition; the goal is still to get as many strikes and spares as possible. As players palm miniature bowling balls and toss them down four lanes, a jukebox fills the alley with classic tunes and a bartender fills pitchers to the brim with beer.

Dogs may be man's best friend, but having a horse show up at your wedding is more likely to impress.

At The ComedySportz Theatre, audience suggestions keep an all-ages, family-friendly and fast-paced vortex of scenes, games, and songs spinning in competitive shows that pit two improv teams against each other. Inside the intimate, 149-seat theater, spontaneity rules as a referee moderates the all-ages-appropriate hilarity pitched between the Chicago Bosses and The Evanston Express. At the end of each comedic duel, the points and audience votes are tallied to determine the winning team, sentencing the losers to feed the doves that live inside the winners' top hats.

The ComedySportz Training Center's seasoned instructors also teach six-week courses in the art of improvised hilarity and the essential virtues of spontaneity, risk taking, and engagement with the moment. Through scene work, ComedySportz games, and short- and long-form improv, students learn to keep audiences roaring in order to jump-start a career or become a more affable bank robber.

A shared passion in fitness brought The Barre Code's co-founders Jillian Lorenz and Ariana Chernin together in 2009 to form a unique boutique studio crafted around women's fitness. After years of independently choreographing workouts, the duo joined forces to form The Barre Code ?formerly Barre Bee Fit? a fitness program dedicated to crafting workout regimens around the Barre Code mantra. Since 2010, the pair have been teaching classes that uphold the Barre Code's mantra and promote cardiovascular conditioning, strength-training, and restoration.

In a short time, The Barre Code has expanded from a small studio space to a national franchise which includes multiple locations throughout the U.S. Workouts center around the ballet barre and feature stamina-building exercises that help rapidly build stronger arms, abs, thighs, and glutes. New routines are available each week and classes that include kickboxing, high-intensity interval training, yoga, and dance continually evolve to keep up with fitness innovations. Participants can also count on instructors to regularly introduce new props and moves to keep them interested and seeing results.

Discovery World’s 120,000 square feet of exhibits celebrate exploration—both of technology and aquatic life. Guests can gaze at a 75,000-gallon freshwater tank filled with species found in the Great Lakes, stroll down a glass-enclosed tunnel beneath the 65,000-gallon saltwater tank containing colorful Caribbean fish, and admire jellyfish showing off their limber break-dance skills before getting their hands wet in touch tanks with sturgeon, stingrays, and more. The museum further satisfies thirst for watery knowledge with to-scale replicas of the Great Lakes and the Challenge, a 19th-century schooner.

Discovery World houses plenty of exhibits dedicated to innovative technology, including Les Paul’s House of Sound, which features guitars from Les Paul’s own personal collection. Visitors can also practice flying a plane and skywriting marriage proposals in the airplane simulator, or peer inside a nuclear reactor as it generates energy.
