  • Paul Gerni
    "The Ambassador of Pool," 22-time world-champion trick-shot pool player Paul Gerni, has experience instructing all levels of cue wielders to precisely pocket ceramic orbs. During two one-hour lessons, Paul will rendezvous at popular Sidepockets or Shark's pool halls to teach players essentials such as how to improve cue-ball control and speed and when to play safeties. Under Paul’s friendly tutelage, players cover the basics of choosing the right angles and reading the table's patterns without invading its personal space during quick geometry tutorials. Adept pocket seekers may have time to explore more complex aspects of the game and even be invited to play on Paul Gerni's personal practice table, covered in Simonis cloth, which, like an overfed kangaroo, has extratight pockets.

  • Thunder Beach at Aaron's Family Fun Center
    The thwap! of wrists connecting with volleyballs might have you sniffing the air for salt and sunscreen at Thunder Beach. Though the latest addition to Aaron's Family Fun Center is landlocked, its sand volleyball courts and outdoor patio bar could easily convince you otherwise. Here, players can set up their teammates for a spike without ever having to stop the game to shoo away seagulls or move a beached whale. Thunder Beach gives players the option to join a league or just show up and rent an open court. Bright lights enable hours of evening play, and workshops led by professionals help players hone their skills. And if the volleyball doesn't catch your interest, no matter? the courts can be reconfigured for soccer, football, or ultimate frisbee. Between sets, refuel with some food from the bar or escape to Aaron's Family Fun Center for a round of skeeball or go bowling at Park Lanes Family Fun Center .
