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).

Kids on Course Golf Academy wants to spread the golf gospel to as many youngsters as possible, which is why it offers flexible and accessible lessons for children as young as 3. Parents can rest easy knowing their kids are participating in afterschool lessons at their local school under the watchful eyes of instructors instead of running amok in the neighborhood or playing croquet. When school's out of session, young players can hone their skills in holiday or summer clinics. Parents who want to improve their game can also take part in the clinics, teaming up with anyone aged 7 and older.
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.

Hitting the heavy bags won't skin your knuckles once you don the included boxing gloves, which also double as excellent spring-loaded props for re-creating Three Stooges gags. Classes take place Mondays and Wednesdays at 9:30 a.m. and 6:30 p.m.; Tuesdays and Thursdays at 9:30 a.m. and 7 p.m.; Fridays at 9:30 a.m. and 6 p.m.; and Saturdays at 9 a.m.
