At each bowling center, balls hurtle down smooth, polished lanes as LCD screens keep track of scores and shimmering party lights illuminate the faces of determined bowlers. After lacing up some slide-enabling shoes and clearing the gutters of deciduous pins, bowlers set their sights on toppling 10-pin clusters. Carpets bedecked with psychedelic swirls lead to shelves stocked with neon-colored balls, which proffer their pin-busting talents to bowlers of various sizes. Fingers can warm up by mashing buttons in an arcade full of entrancing video games or bench-pressing french fries at the onsite grill and pub.

The Portland Chamber Music Festival, which has been broadcast on NPR and has received two Aaron Copland grants for American contemporary-music performance, is a community-based organization that brings nationally recognized, classical-chamber-music professionals to the Portland area. Part of the Summer Concert Series held in the air-conditioned confines of the Abromson Center, this August 13 concert will serenade eardrums with the rich stringscapes of Beethoven's Viola Quintet , the most memorable five-piece since the human senses formed a Grandfunk Railroad tribute band. Composer Lee Hyla, chair of music composition at Northwestern University, will introduce his Amnesia Redux for Piano Trio, and the sonic shindig concludes with a cochleae-rousing performance of Faure's Piano Quartet in C Minor.
