When Joy Kakabeeke was diagnosed with fibromyalgia, she turned to yoga. Having experienced the restorative, therapeutic effects of yoga in the past, Kakabeeke was pleasantly surprised at how regular yoga sessions helped ease the discomfort of her fibromyalgia. As a result, she opened Yoga Reflections as a means to share her knowledge and experience with others. Here, she and other instructors lead not only yoga classes, but also Pilates and sculpting barre classes that take place throughout the week.

Wings Stadium plays host to more than just board-slamming checks during the Kalamazoo Wings' home hockey games. On select days, the 8,023-seat venue opens its frozen confines to amateurs interested in all sorts of winter sports. Skaters of all ages can glide across the smooth ice during open-skating sessions, and members of the Kalamazoo Curling Club practice and face off throughout the fall and winter. On weekend nights, hockey fans can bring their own skates to a K-Wings home game and finish their night skating and checking the ice for lost incisors.

Putter's Family Fun Center strengthens familial bonds and encourages friendly competition with mini golf, an arcade room, and batting cages. The 18-hole mini golf course ($5/person) thwarts shots with tricky terrain and obstacles, including waterfalls, fiberglass giraffes, and ACT testing. Fully charged children expend energy on batting cages ($15 for 30 minutes) and giant trampolines ($3), and the extensive arcade and water-balloon arena serve as battlegrounds for settling inter-family disputes over whose father is the better astronaut. The center also hosts free WiFi and a snack bar, serving energy-packed foods to sustain childish fits of fun long into the night.

Equipped with an in-house brewing system, Old Hat Brewery churns out a medley of homegrown suds to pair with an extensive menu of hearty pub fare. Whistles receive a thorough wetting with a bevy of brews ($4–$5), such as the house-brewed alt ale, which glows with a ruby hue and creates a bitter balance of malt and hops; and the pub’s original gluten-free brew, a sudsy beverage that gives sippers with vendettas against whole grains the opportunity to quench thirsts. Old Hat Brewery fills in the nooks and crannies left in the stomach after a brew-dousing with noshables such as the prime-rib french dip sandwich, a mound of meat marinated in homemade stout and resting atop billowy bread ($6.99); or a half-pound burger cooked to order ($5.99). Burritos, nachos, and quesadillas satisfy southwestern appetites ($5.99–$7.99), and an array of hand-tossed dough disks come adorned with your choice of fixings or inspirational quotes penned in marinara sauce ($8.99–$12.99).
