  • Roving Imp Theatre
    Roving Imp Theater & Coffee House?the only improv venue in Kansas?showcases the madcapped, off-the-cuff antics of improvateurs culled from across the U.S. and abroad. Comedic illusionists conjure one-act plays, making characters, scenes, and plots appear out of thin air using a complicated system of smoke, mirrors, and audience suggestions. The schedule changes as regularly as the star performer in a one-man adaptation of Cats, but recurring acts include Serial Cereal, an improvised sitcom that follows a family of wrestlers through weekly episodes, and RI Spectacular, a Whose Line Is It Anyway?-style game show.

  • Dealflicks
    Did you know that, on average, 88% of the seats in a movie theater remain empty during a showing? According to the New York Times, this phenomenon really surprised Sean Wycliffe a few years back when he went to see the Oscar-winning film The King's Speech and shared the theater with only two other audience members. With all the focus on online video services, Sean realized movie theaters were being overlooked, and came up with a concept that could help movie houses fill their empty seats. His brainchild became Dealflicks, a website that offers customers discounted tickets (sometimes with popcorn or soda) for same-day showings. Customers shop a selection of deals, each of which is specific to a particular film, theater, and showtime, and upon purchase, receive an email voucher they present at the theater's ticket counter. Dealflicks is partnered with theaters around the country, particularly independent and neighborhood venues, such as the treehouse of the enterprising kid down the street.

  • Thunder Beach at Aaron's Family Fun Center
    The thwap! of wrists connecting with volleyballs might have you sniffing the air for salt and sunscreen at Thunder Beach. Though the latest addition to Aaron's Family Fun Center is landlocked, its sand volleyball courts and outdoor patio bar could easily convince you otherwise. Here, players can set up their teammates for a spike without ever having to stop the game to shoo away seagulls or move a beached whale. Thunder Beach gives players the option to join a league or just show up and rent an open court. Bright lights enable hours of evening play, and workshops led by professionals help players hone their skills. And if the volleyball doesn't catch your interest, no matter? the courts can be reconfigured for soccer, football, or ultimate frisbee. Between sets, refuel with some food from the bar or escape to Aaron's Family Fun Center for a round of skeeball or go bowling at Park Lanes Family Fun Center .
