As a kid, Micky Bolin roamed Sahoma Lanes, lending a helping hand to his grandfather, who opened the bowling alley in 1960. Over the years, the business switched hands from his grandfather to his father, with Micky taking over as manager in 2005. Today, the alley's 24 lanes still foster a fun, competitive atmosphere but with the added bonus of automatic scoring and a fully loaded video-game area that would've caused accusations of time travel or Russian-spy connections on opening day. The center buzzes with energy during Saturday night cosmic bowling, when what Micky calls the "mom-approved" tunes and current music videos are emblazoned across 10-foot screens. Nearby, patrons clamor for a chance to net mammoth catches before humanely releasing them back into the motherboard of the Big Bass Pro arcade game or refuel with pizza and burgers at the snack bar. The bowling center hosts a roster of leagues, but the Colorama League stands out from the rest with more than $3,400 worth of cash prizes, which can fund future games or cover the cost of a bowling ball crushed during a fit of frustration. Yet staff members prefer Thursday-night leagues, when they lace up bowling shoes and join players in the lanes.

Vintage Market Days organizers Amy Scott and Dianna Brown discovered an interest in vintage bazaars at a young age. As a child, Dianna frequented neighborhood garage sales to find items that she repurposed into decorations for her "pretend house." Meanwhile, Amy visited the Tulsa Flea Market with her mother and great aunt, who collected Depression glassware and helped her to start her own vintage collections.
As adults, Amy and Dianna organize upscale vintage fairs several times a year at indoor and outdoor locations throughout Oklahoma. Shoppers can examine architectural salvage, peruse vintage home d?cor items, or drape themselves in clothing and jewelry from yesteryear so they won't stand out as a tourist on time-traveling trips. And to compliment the vintage ware, vendors also sell original art and handmade jewelry.
