The curators of Bounce & Play's indoor playground want to see kids exercising and developing motor skills. To accomplish this, they fill their plush facility with seven bounce houses, air-filled obstacle courses, and games such as ping-pong and air hockey. For adults, they stock the center's bright storefront with coffee and snacks. Additionally, the playground's toddler area lets little ones younger than aged 3 crawl through tunnels and play with toys without encountering the competitive spirit of older kids who talk about nothing but math and literature.

Castle Lanes, which was No. 36 on Bowlers Journal International's list of 95 must-see bowling centers, has a cozy Northwoods-Log-Homes-esque interior that invites bowlers of all ages and abilities to relax and perfect their pin-toppling skills. On 24 glossy lanes, bowlers sling new house balls at pins between watching the alley's HDTVs, listening to music with the alley's iPod hook-ups, or surfing the Internet on the alley's free WiFi. Castle Lanes is a smoke-free environment, making it friendly to families and sneezy dwarves. The alley's dedication to an upscale environment filled with top-notch equipment is fostered by owners Phillip Ontko, who is a Racine Bowling Hall of Famer and the Nolan Ryan of bowling strikes, and his wife, who can easily roll a bowling ball up a hill.

For 15 years, actor John Pinero has conjured the spirit of legendary NFL coach and Super Bowl trophy namesake Vince Lombardi in Vince, an acclaimed one-man stage play. Sports fans, athletes, and football-ballistics physicists of all ages will find inspiration in the story and wisdom of Lombardi, considered by some to be the greatest sports coach of all time. Pinero pulls off a nearly two-hour show that has won the praises of Lombardi’s former players as well as his notoriously finicky fedora. The show starts at 7 p.m., and Groupon customers will be given the best available seats based on a first-come, first-down basis.

Within its storied confines, The Ivanhoe presents hearty cuisine drawing from classic Irish and American pub traditions alongside a selection of 26 brews and a focus on lively community. A bountiful drink menu holds the secret access code to an international cabal of crisp brews, indexing aliases such as Spotted Cow ($4), Smithwick's ($4.50), and the notoriously elusive Blue Moon ($4). Sample one of more than 100 whiskeys, absorb a glass of wine, or sip a martini such as the tongue-tickling Snickers ($8). A robust food menu details singular starters such as the wasabi-laced sesame seared tuna ($10) with greens in a honey-soy-ginger sauce, as well as Celtic standbys such as the European-style fish and chips ($10). The Jameson burger ($9) extends a transatlantic bridge of onion rings smothered in Jameson sauce and the relieved tears of stranded sailors.
