  • Maple Family Centers
    When combined, the thunderous rolling of balls, clattering of pins, and whip-like clashing of high-fives form the soundtrack for Maple Family Centers' string of family-owned alleys. Open seven days per week, each emporium's array of slicked lanes host everything from youth programs and leagues to birthday parties as competitors of all ages duel with or without bumpers. During cosmic bowling on weekend nights, Maple Family Centers honors the sport's discothèque origins with glowing lanes and thumping tunes. A full menu of pub fare re-energizes fatigued fingers, and on-site pro shops help improve players' games by providing the latest equipment or fitting older balls with new prescription glasses.

  • Fun Time Pottery
    With its bright yellow walls speckled with Disney decals and bright stickers, Fun Time Pottery invites artists of all ages and skill levels to work in a cheery, creative atmosphere. During open paint sessions, participants choose a piece of pottery from the overflowing shelves that line the room, using stencils and paints to add their own personal touches to plates, mugs, and figurines. Pottery classes let students delve into the intricacies of clay shaping, with instructors teaching their charges how to bring forth new objects from shapeless lumps of clay, and how much paprika to add to play-doh before it’s edible. After finishing their sculpting, pupils learn how to paint and glaze their works, creating unique keepsakes from start to finish.

  • Jamaican Jerk Festival
    Every summer the Jamaican Jerk Festival creates an authentic slice of Jamaica within the continental United States. Reggae music plays, and the aromas of jerk chicken, pork, and fish dance in the warm air. Aptly named the Jamaican Jerk Festival, the celebration brings together food vendors, home cooks, and renowned chefs—who demonstrate how to make traditional Jamaican recipes. Multiple stages serve up entertainment alongside this cuisine. International musicians play classic and modern music, and performance artists keep the art of Jamaican storytelling alive. Meanwhile, cooking competitions and celebrity cook offs invite attendees to become active participants in the celebration.

  • International Great Beer Expo
    The annual International Great Beer Expo assembles more than 50 breweries from around the world at Long Island's Belmont Park Racetrack.

Beers truly hail from all corners of the world, including Lebanon, Indonesia, Nicaragua, and New Zealand, in addition to places famed for their brews such as Ireland, Belgium, and Germany. But the event isn't all fun and games of bags; a portion of the proceeds benefits the Beer for Brains Foundation, which brings craft-beer lovers together to help find a cure for brain cancer.
