Informed by a deep knowledge of physiology and kinesiology, these programs also propel them toward goals such as losing weight, sculpting muscles, or running a marathon while flying a kite.
Thomas and Friends Live! stars the beloved characters of Thomas, Percy, Diesel, and all their friends in a fun-filled theatrical extravaganza. The latest production, Thomas Saves the Day, follows the gaggle of anthropomorphic trains as they prepare for the annual Magic Lantern Festival on the island of Sodor. As the engines work together to repair the lighthouse that guides visitors to the island, children will learn important lessons in discovery, friendship, cooperation, and how to slip loose from a giant octopus while scuba diving. The 90-minute musical's brand-new songs will have tots clamoring in adulation for an encore and throwing gummy bears onto the stage, the highest form of pre-K praise.
The independently owned Community Bowling Centers accommodate bowlers of all ages and abilities, featuring bumper-equipped lanes and lightweight balls designed for the hands of pintsize players. At 10 smoke-free locations throughout the region, guests enjoy open hours in addition to league opportunities and special events. The onsite bar serves ice-cold cups of soda or beer, which guests may raise in toasts to friendship and man's ability to hydrate himself. On select evenings, the alley lights turn down and the ethereal illumination of Glow N Bowl takes over with laser-light shows and fog machines. As balls roll down phosphorescent lanes, a sound track of thumping beats and alien distress calls saturates the space.
In 2011, O'Malley's Galley won The Citizen's readers polls for the best ribs, desserts, and catering in town. The eatery continues to live up to these titles with its inventive American food, including barbecue pork, smoked for 24 hours with cherry wood and basted in sauce that's made fresh for each order. In addition, Michele O'Malley, a member of the founding family, handcrafts all of the restaurant's highly lauded desserts to ensure delicious consistency. The restaurant's catered hog roasts spruce up weddings, graduations or office get-togethers with skilled chefs appearing on-site to carve the hog, prepare it, and teach it to fly.
An alley-splitting bowling ball crashes into the headpin, destroying a 10-pin triangle before automated pinsetters restore order in time for the next roll. Controlled chaos is the name of the game at Cherry Hill Lanes North, where guests compete on 36 Brunswick lanes equipped with an automatic scoring system. Those looking to unwind after a frame or toast an old pair of bowling shoes can indulge in nightly drink specials at the 11th Frame Sports Bar, a spot that also boasts pool tables and Saturday-night karaoke from 9 p.m. to 1:30 a.m.
