  • Sparkles Family Fun Center
    Roller skating often evokes images of ?50s-era teens clad in poodle skirts and the black-and-white makeup that was customary at the time. But at both freshly renovated Sparkles Family Fun Centers, roller-skating proves itself as a 21st-century pastime by incorporating contemporary technology. From a DJ who spins family-friendly beats at both locations to the laser-tag zone and black lights that set the Gwinnett rink aglow, modern-day touches pervade each space. The arcades are stuffed with extra helpings of bells and whistles; skee-ball and electronically scored basketball compete for attention with racing video games that re-create famous auto duels or the 1954 Drake Relays. At nearby multistory indoor playgrounds, kids get back to physical recreation, scurrying across bridges and whipping down slick slides.

  • National Bartending School of Atlanta
    Rich purple walls and a bar outfitted with a zebra-print façade sounds more like club decor than the decor of a school. For the past 20 years, however, the National Bartending School of Atlanta has put on mixology clinics in just this kind of lounge-style setting. At its six learning stations, teachers train professional bartenders during hands-on certification courses that cover more than 100 drink recipes, as well as eclectic topics such as free pouring or the art of making a cocktail from whatever falls down a waterfall. Alternatively, students can dabble in the art of cocktail creation during two-hour, noncertification courses, which focus on classic drinks such as the cosmo and the margarita.

  • Urban Currents
    Headquartered amid a 6-mile stretch of the Chattahoochee River, Urban Currents equips its guests with 46-inch inner tubes designed for leisurely drifts down the softly flowing stream, though that's not to say they have no sense of adventure. Throughout the week, Urban Currents offers SUP board river trips, rafting trips, and sit-on-top kayaking trips.

  • McKinley Golf Academy
    Head Instructor Jim McKinley calls upon his certifications as a Level 3 United States Golf Teachers Federation Instructor and US Army Master Fitness Trainer to help students take control of their swings and improve their scores. Jim starts lessons by assessing a player’s grip, posture, and alignment at setup, which are the building blocks of a tasty stew and a fundamental golf swing. Teachers and pupils then focus on the mechanics of the swing, with the students performing drills and exercises that help remedy problem areas. Students may also use training aides to lock in muscle memory so that the muscles learn the different benefits of swinging and twirling the club. Jim understands that while stance and swing mechanics can be addressed on the driving range, the less tangible aspects of club selection and golf-course management cannot. He helps students with these principles by playing a round with them, and offers a 50% refund to any student who can beat him.
