  • Sino West Performing Arts
    Sino West Performing Arts serves as the meeting place of two disciplines: dance and kung fu. Under the tutelage of four experienced instructors, kids and adults learn, hone, and perfect skills in a variety of art forms. Atop sprung floors of recycled rubber and beneath ceilings of repurposed clouds, they practice in one of two airy, well-lit studios. Curricula under the dance umbrella include Chinese dance, tai chi, ballet, Zumba, and yoga, while martial-arts practitioners take classes in Shaolin kung fu, MMA, and weaponry, among others. The class selection is diverse, but no matter the chosen course, enrollees report increased levels of confidence, self-discipline, and bragging rights.

  • Comedy Hideaway
    Every Thursday, Comedy Hideaway ushers in a lineup of HBO- and Comedy Central-anointed performers, its stage still echoing with the bygone riffs of such national acts as Zach Galifianakis and Whitney Cummings. The club's founder, Andrey Belikov, often hosts and performs at the evening's revues, spinning impressions of his Ukrainian father and detailing his foibles in American society. Between sets, guests avail themselves of a menu of Italian fare, sip laugh-loosening drinks, and stand in line for autographs from nationally touring microphone stands.

  • Zodos Bowling and Beyond
    In bowling, the perfect strike requires a careful calculation of force, spin, and positioning—but Zodo's - Bowling & Beyond injects fun into the physics lesson with 24 gleaming lanes ready to take whatever you can throw at them, provided you've donned the proper fluorescent footwear (each rented shoe half-red, half-green). Healthy competition and the joy of yelling 'strike!' are pretty entertaining all on their own, but Zodo's doesn't stop there—Glow Bowling's atmospheric touches include black lights, a live DJ, and fog. Twice-daily happy hours, wine by the barrel, 40 on-tap beers keep spirits high, and a menu of gourmet pizza, fresh salads, burgers, and more creative fare provide more sustenance than a feast of felled pins. Bowlers can also take a break for other games in the arcade.

  • Santa Barbara
    Danny Douglas, featured in the Santa Barbara Independent and boasting both a culinary degree and a decade of experience, passes on his kitchen know-how during three-hour cooking classes using local, seasonable cuisine. Novice spatula wielders mingle with fellow students and sip on home-brought beverages as the expert culinarian teaches them how to craft a four-course meal as fresh and elegant as Grandmaster Flash at the opera. An in-season and locally caught seafood dish stars in the tongue-pleasing production alongside locally harvested produce and humanely raised meats. The communal cooking experience bonds couples closer together while solidifying friendships through the art of crafting consumables and dining together on meals on a white tablecloth. Those more interested in letting a chef cook for them may apply their Groupon toward Danny Douglas' catering services.

  • The Acting Camp
    Success as a child actor depends almost as much on parents' managerial knowhow as it does on a kid's acting skills. During three-day weekend excursions at The Acting Camp—held at the more than 300-acre El Capitan Canyon—aspiring performers and their guardians develop their respective roles in each youngster's career. Under the tutelage of John D'Aquino – a veteran of hits like Seinfeld and _Hannah Montana_ – kids refine techniques such as auditioning on camera and improvising. These sessions culminate in prepared scenes that groups of campers perform for casting directors, agents, and managers from networks like Nickelodeon and the CW. Beforehand, these insiders as well as parents of working child actors meet with parents to discuss the business end of the entertainment industry, where money and Beanie Babies exchange hands at a rapid rate. Amid all these career-focused activities, The Acting Camp leaves plenty of time for families to relax and bond with fellow attendees.
