Amid the locker-lined walls of Markley Billiards' spacious playroom, hanging table lamps pour light onto pristine Brunswick Gold Crown tables and brand-new Diamond Pro-Am bar boxes. The well-lit and smoke-free pool hall promises that shooters won't have to squint as they angle for corner shots or launch games with a break that leaves the tables' smooth Simonis cloth tops as empty as a magician's rabbit farm. Open until or beyond midnight every night of the week, they keep pool players sated with sandwiches, hot dogs, and drinks while a digital jukebox belts out ideal rhythms for chalking a cue.

A gleaming wood bar reflects the rows of spirits lining the shelves as well as the eyes of pool players, which dart in a calculated fashion across the emerald felt. At Bel Air Billiards Sports Pub, colorful spheres clatter and roll across eleven tables, which include 7-foot bar-box units and 9-foot Olhausen models. Tucked away from the smooth trajectory of cues and the wild arm gestures of dishonest fishermen, a scattering of tables boosts patrons as they sip beers by the glass or bottle and nosh on sandwiches and other finger foods. From the kitchen, one can hear hot oil crackling in applause as wings leap beneath shelves brimming with Old Bay and more than 20 spicy, barbeque, and mustard-based sauces. Ten high-definition plasma televisions situated around the perimeter flicker with images from live sports or public apologies to knocked-over hurdles, and karaoke nights flesh out the chatter with raucous choruses.
For more than 15 years, the Reading Comedy Outlet has been busting guts with its weekly slate of up-and-coming laugh larks and old-hand guffaw gurus. Arrive early on a Friday or Saturday evening to stake a prime plot of side-splitting real estate for comic concerts including Vancouver chuckle-chucker Phil Hanley on April 15 and 16, and the two-for-one combo of headliners Davin Rosenblatt and Cal Verduchi in late April. Ticket prices average between $13 and $14 per person. While not included in today's Groupon, the Alley Oops Sports Pub cooks up a full menu that includes sandwiches, funnel-cake fries, and slushies mixed with the flavorful tears of sad clowns.

The events held at these diverse locations range from culinary workshops on topics such as sushi-making and moonshine-tasting, to adventurous excursions with whitewater rafting or kayaking, to laid-back themed party cruises. For many outings, luxury transportation is provided.
