Newington Arena’s Zamboni smoothes the ice for a range of blade-based activities, from lessons and hockey matches to freestyle open-skate sessions. Experienced coaches teach new and experienced skaters alike to glide, spin, and casually levitate during learn-to-skate programs and figure-skating academies, and amateurs can independently master their triple axels during public-skate times. Hockey and speed-skating programs warm up the ice, and each Friday night, Ice Jam’s strobe lights and music flood the arena as students 11–15 years old weave around the frozen floor. Newington Arena also houses a snack bar and hosts birthday parties, allowing kids to brag that their shindig was, literally, the coolest.
Back in 1959, Frederick "Bud" Callahan and his wife Loretta built a bowling center on their farmland. Since then, three generations of their family have had their hand in running Callahan's Bowl-O-Rama, including sons, daughters-in-law, and grandchildren. And though the alley bears a retro-style logo on the outside, inside automatic scorers display the latest stats on flat-screen televisions, sparing customers from sliding down to the lane to count pins after every turn. Each lane also has a TV connected to DirecTV, and the lounge welcomes bowlers with even more televisions, cold brews, and karaoke on Friday nights.
