Pinsetter Bar & Bowl's 34 polished lanes reflect their speedy pin-setting machines and the feet of bowlers in soft-soled shoes speeding their balls toward pins. As competition thickens, guests gaze upward to see high-definition monitors broadcasting music videos and bowling stats compiled by the automatic scoring system. After successful rounds, a full bar and lounge wafts the scent of its gourmet fare toward the famished with its barbecue-pork sliders, mussels, and mac 'n' cheese bites. Private events also get special treatment, as guests recline on leather couches in the VIP lounge, which overlooks lanes to be used exclusively by partygoers and the bowling balls that love them.

Amid the verdant, golf-cart-traversed grounds of Indian Spring Country Club and Pennsauken Country Club, executive chef Dean Marco blends herbs with Maryland crab meat to make his broiled jumbo lump crab cakes. The crisp yet creamy morsels, which are Marco’s signature dish, are properly placed near the top of the menu at Marco’s Restaurant, above succulent meats such as filet mignon, Atlantic salmon, and whole crabs with authentic New England accents. Given both locations’ proximity to the links, each kitchen also sates golfers’ appetites with Angus burgers and sandwich baskets that come with optional sides such as lobster-and-shrimp bisque.

Visitors can choose from more than 50 fitness classes at the gym's four locations each week, tackling sessions dedicated to dance, spin, barre, and active conditioning.

To singe calories and tone physiques sans dance moves, trainers lead sessions of step, kickboxing, and TRX suspension.

La Belle Fit complements their group fitness programs with one-on-one personal-training sessions and body-rejuvenating massage services helmed by a certified massage therapist.

Michele Wolf has been called many things, including Clara, Pixie, and a meteorite. At 12 years old, she had snagged the principal role in The Nutcracker and stole the show dancing in A Planetary Interplay and A Unicorn of Fairy Forest. Today, Wolf pours her choreography and professional experience into Artists In Motion Dance and Fitness Studio.

She and her staff impart the fine art to adults and kids, teaching the fundaments of ballet, jazz, and tap. Meanwhile, fitness instructors lead all kinds of heart-starting sessions, such as Zumba, kickboxing, Barre classes, which blurs the line between fitness and dance and what's an appropriate closing argument for a defense attorney. Kids’ classes, meanwhile, focus solely on the arts; the curriculum includes ballet, tap, and musical theater. The studio is also home to a dance troupe and plays host to little ones’ birthday parties.

“This ‘PC’ world has never been more ready for Sarcasm,” exclaims Sarcasm Comedy Club founder Steve Trevelise. The WIP radio personality and veteran comedian, who honed his emceeing and managerial chops at the esteemed Catch a Rising Star, believes that “the comedy stage is the last place for freedom of speech.” Although some shows are rated PG and some are hard Rs, Sarcasm Comedy Club refuses to sanitize its performers for sensitive ears. For those who can take a joke, the uncensored humor hub’s calendar offers two Saturday-night shows per week that spotlight local cutups and national headliners. Those who dream of becoming comedians themselves can enlist in the Sarcasm Comedy School, in which they’ll learn the craft of standup, including joke writing, audience mining, and how to make your own heckler spray.
