The spacious lanes are conditioned each day, guaranteeing pristine surfaces for open bowling sessions and leagues, which are divided by season, gender, and age. Competition continues in the snack bar and lounge, where pool tables, hearty burgers, salads, and creative cocktails match up with customers' cravings.

The Sing With Me curriculum stretches back to the late 19th century, when a duo of sisters and early-education researchers composed the tune that would eventually become "Happy Birthday to You." Donating the popular song's royalties to a foundation, the song eventually financed the research of Ken Guilmartin, who was pursuing the role of music in early cognitive development. Teaming up with fellow researcher Lili Levinowitz, Guilmartin founded Music Together LLC, a system of musical learning that allowed kids from birth to age 7 and their parents to access the joys of music together in a fun, supportive environment. Although not every child is destined for a career as a concert pianist, Sing With Me’s teachers start from the philosophy that all children have some innate musical sense and can be taught to sing in tune, move rhythmically, and distinguish a recorder from a Charleston Chew.
The nine outdoor paintball fields at Battle Creek Outdoor Paintball Fields turn players’ adventure fantasies into reality. Each has its own terrain, obstacles, and atmosphere to transport competitors into new worlds. In James Town, players can duck into the remains of abandoned buildings to take cover from incoming paint pellets like Jesse James once did, and they can climb the Junkyard's towers of tires or perch atop large spools to take aim at approaching opponents. Players must decide whether to be good or evil in The Fortress, either defending the fortress-like structure’s honor or attempting to conquer it and vanquish their opponents. Fantastic narratives aside, those seeking regulation-style play can face off in The Woods and Speedball fields.
Pin Street at Warwick was designed with family fun in mind. 28 synthetic lanes, all of which come with optional bumpers, host friendly competition during open bowling hours seven days a week. More serious bowlers can take advantage of the on-site pro shop for custom gear and maintenance, or sign up for league play.
In addition to shiny lanes, the entertainment complex also features an arcade room and on-site snack lounge featuring burgers, chicken fingers, and salads. For special events, Pin Street at Warwick rents out these facilities to celebrate birthdays, graduations, and supreme court justice appointments.
The second-annual Rock, Ribs, and Ridges festival will bedeck the mountain country of Vernon with a full lineup of live music as well as a barbecue cook-off between four competitive teams. Doors open each day at 11:30 a.m. with musical performances from a total of nine bands, including headliners 38 Special and Blackberry Smoke on Saturday, and Marshall Tucker Band and The Outlaws on Sunday. The rocksmiths crank up the amps at 12:30 p.m. and won’t power down until after 6 p.m., giving general-admission ticketholders ample time to adorn their lawn seating with chairs, blankets, and above-ground pools toted from home. The RibFest Cookoff tasks four teams of barbecue competitors with sating the palates of judges and the public alike, presenting awards for Best Ribs and Best Sauce on Sunday after the crowd has had its fill.
