At Crest Bowl, pins scatter across the gleaming hardwood of 32 bowling lanes equipped with up-to-date scoring equipment, lending a baritone rumble to a chorus of cheery shouts. Patrons lace up bowling shoes to improve smooth approaches and ward off sandal-model scouts. Mr. Karaoke conducts sing-alongs multiple nights a week, and cosmic bowling nights allow players to work toward a perfect game and experience the thrill of riding a comet amid upbeat music and the glow of laser lights. When three consecutive strikes put turkey on bowlers' minds, Brickhouse Pizza Company sates appetites with pizzas and sandwiches and fuels victory toasts with a full bar.
Hazelwood Bowl boasts 24 retro renovated bowling lanes and redesigned restaurant and bar areas for sporty entertainment and family fun. After wrangling a pair of bowling shoes, duos of 10-pin enthusiasts can perfect their arm swings with two hours on the lanes, complete with bumper bowling for youngsters and automatic scoring to keep abacuses fresh and ready for tallying UFO sightings (up to a $12 value/person). Then customers can head over to The Wood Bar & Grill to conquer worked up appetites with a St. Louis–style pizza with one topping, including Italian sausage, jalapeños, mushrooms, and more (an $8.95 value), all washed down with a pitcher of soda (a $4 value). Families of four and barbershop quartets can combine two Groupons for larger group frivolity.
A row of pines encloses Bridgeton Stables, which boards equine friends in well-equipped facilities that include tack rooms, trail access, and a lounge. Indoor and outdoor arenas set the stage for Jessica Schmidle's horseback-riding lessons, which are taught in three competitive concentrations: Western pleasure, barrel racing, and pole bending.
Players defeat bosses, slam foosballs, and shoot aliens out of the sky at Game Haven STL. This gaming lounge brings together consoles and arcade games ranging from Atari to Xbox One in one safe space for kids and adults. Big-screen TVs and computers set up for LAN parties allow for group play, making it a good destination for birthday parties or as a place to make a new friend. In addition to video and arcade games, Game Haven hosts tabletop play—owner Gabriel Escobedo first became enamored with gaming after playing Magic: The Gathering in the early '90s. Participants can also use the free WiFi and enjoy concessions whenever they need a break from jumping over barrels or capturing mushrooms.
Between AD 700 and 1400, the city of Cahokia gradually rose from the floodplain of the Mississippi River to become the largest city north of Mexico. Across 6 square miles, its population of 20,000 people worked together to create a thriving community grounded in astronomy, agriculture, and economics. To this end, they erected large, lasting structures such as an enormous wooden calendar that notified citizens about the changes of the seasons. Giant earthen mounds served as the foundation of the city and the site of the big mud fight that decided the mayoral election each year.
Through careful excavation, research, and reconstruction, the Cahokia Mounds Museum Society aims to preserve the site and educate visitors about its importance. During visits, guests on self-guided tours can explore 800 acres of the city, including the 100-foot-tall Monks Mound and Woodhenge, the giant calendar.
