Rolling Oaks Golf Club pairs an expansive driving range with an outdoor patio and banquet space that welcomes guests with food, drink, and live music. Outfitted with numerous hitting bays and stadium lights, the range lets golfers spruce up swings day or night, regardless of the sun’s busy schedule or the moon’s refusal to pay its electric bill. The driving range also hosts golf clinics and lessons for players in need of advice from golf experts. After dialing in drives and fine-tuning chip shots, players can kick back in the club’s dining room to feast on burgers, cheesesteaks, and other traditional grill fare as regular live music and guitar solos express the woe of a missed birdie shot in ways words never can.

As the former world-record holder for driving distance, Brad Peterson turned his passion for power into an all-encompassing purview of golf strategy. For more than 14 years, Brad has been helping golfers lower scores through private and group lessons at Peterson Golf. He determines the issues his student might be experiencing and identifies key areas for improvement. Armed with this information, he devises custom lesson plans, including swing-specific exercises and video-swing analysis to reveal imbalanced backswings and triple-axel follow-throughs.

Although Brad has taught more than 8,000 students in his career, one pupil stands out, not only as a physically imposing human but also as a success story: NBA Hall of Famer Rick Barry. After meeting and discussing golf, Brad turned Rick into a three-time RE/MAX World Long Drive Champion with his techniques for maximizing power and avoiding low-post rejections by other former NBA big men.

For fun or competition, Universal Judo provides instruction and enjoyment to practitioners of all skill levels and ages. Call ahead to schedule your first visit.

Laser Legend's black-lit arena surrounds players in a scene that seems straight out of a science-fiction movie. Glowing planets and stars backdrop the 5,000-square-foot space, where fog creeps out from behind neon-blue walls and 14 robots guard bases. Up to eight teams fire lasers across two levels, competing during match types such as capture the flag or tickle the flag until it says uncle. The phosphorescent ambience also extends to the Glo Golf course, where alien forests and caves surround golfers as they line up putts. The course employs a multi-hole system that allows Laser Legend?s intergalactic greenskeepers to change the cup locations each week. Elsewhere, more than 40 games, such as Sno Cross, Dirty Driving, Doodle Jump, and Juke-n-Box, create a symphony of electronic beeps in the arcade.

The aromas of fresh-baked breadsticks lure visitors into the onsite restaurant, Noble Roman's Pizza, where chefs fry chicken wings, assemble italian-beef subs, and slide pepperoni pizzas into the oven. This casual Italian cuisine also fuels stomachs within Laser Legend's party rooms, where guests can watch satellite TV and birthday kids eat a breadstick for every year they've had teeth.

Bowling is the great social equalizer—a common ground where grizzled undercover clowns, blue-collar English lords, LARPer librarians, big and tall lingerie models, hordes of hive-minded hipsters, and the other two social demographics that comprise America can unite in common cause and topple a gaggle of stuck-up, inanimate wooden pins. Brunswick has been a household name in this egalitarian pastime almost since the beginning, with a company history that dates back to the 19th century, providing classic American good times to all manner of patrons across the country. And with today's Groupon tying the room together, you'll get to play two games (up to a $9.98 value) in its hallowed halls wearing a pair of freshly disinfected bowling shoes (a $3.59 value).

During The Glo Run, participants must do two things at once: run a 5K and glow in the dark. It's not as hard as it sounds. For the nighttime run, they can bring or purchase glow T-shirts, sunglasses, and accessories, which are activated by the black lights lining the route. For an added touch of festivity, DJs spin along the way, and a post-run dance party kicks off at the finish line.
