Between Om Shanti Om Yoga Center’s saffron-colored walls, eight gentle-voiced instructors guide students into meditative poses. They flow through a variety of positions, each designed to open up muscles while quieting the mind. The instructors have diverse backgrounds, which include degrees in math, doctoral degrees, and 30-year competitive-running careers. To introduce new students to the practice, Om Shanti Om offers a basics package, which includes beginners-only classes twice a week. There are also discounted rates available on more-advanced classes to encourage newcomers to test the waters of 75- or 90-minute classes, which involve finding the area under the curve of your back during each pose.
Pool players of all ages and skill levels can find all the right angles at VIP Billiards’ 20 pool tables seven days a week. When not sinking shots into the spot’s 120 pockets, cue hands keep busy with bottles of beer or a cocktail from the full-service bar, and all patrons can pass the time between games by throwing darts, sending ping-pong balls careening across tables, or using the WiFi to look up pro tips for applying chalk. VIP Billiards also opens up its space and all the attendant green felt surfaces for private parties, fundraisers, and APA league teams.

O’Reilly’s flame-wielders dish up an eclectic menu of traditional Irish-pub fare amid fetching period décor and games fit for the whole family. Imbue taste buds with the savory flavors of a twice-baked shrimp potato ($7.48) before unbridling a gallant fleet of forks upon a legion of irish-sausage links straddled with mashed potatoes and sautéed onions ($14.98). Or invoke the Earl of Sandwich without donning a fluffernutter-encrusted crown by perusing O’Reilly’s selection of handheld eats, which includes the succulent short-rib grilled-cheese sandwich slathered in horseradish sauce ($10.48) and the Bookmaker—a robust layering of filet mignon, sautéed onions, and mushrooms ($13.48). Homemade by O’Reilly’s crack chefs, the strawberry-rhubarb cobbler robes itself with regal dollops of whipped and sweetened Jameson butter ($4.98).
The Long Island Maritime Museum records, restores, and displays the history and story of life on the water of Long Island. The main building of the campus occupies the former Meadow Edge estate, and other historical nautical buildings from around the island have been transplanted to its grounds. These structures include exhibits such as the Wrecks & Rescuers exhibit, based on the annals of the United States Life-Saving Service. They also contain the Edward Smith Library of local nautical history and a collection of 19th- and 20th-century boat-racing trophies.
The museum's prized possession does not reside on dry land, though. In the nearby harbor, a fully restored 1888 oyster sloop named Priscilla can still venture out into the bay for both public and private sails.
Known simply at The Plex, Long Island Sportsplex offers 18,500 square feet of family fun year-round. The facility eliminates the possibility of rain delays with a smattering of indoor lacrosse and soccer fields and basketball and volleyball courts. Youth football leagues teach kids basic football skills, and adults take the field for games of flag football. Games of pickle ball and field hockey also abound inside The Plex. During warmer months, families can hit golf balls over bridges, alongside creeks, and bypass black holes on the outdoor mini-golf course.
