Indianapolis Speedrome is the home of the World Figure 8 Championship and one of the early tracks to implement stock cars. Guests of opening night will be welcomed to the storied arena at 6:53 p.m., with a command to have the cars start their engines at 6:58 p.m. For more than three hours, stock cars will burn pure adrenaline as they race on the stadium's oval and figure 8 tracks. The first hour's heats let each make and model bake the track to a golden brown, before the featured events burn it to ash as muscled Road Runners go head-to-head after spritely Bandoleros and parents pushing children on bicycles. The evening concludes with a showdown among high-class, custom late models and an on-track trophy presentation and potluck dinner. Seating is first come, first served, and attendees are encouraged to arrive early.

Energetic music pumps bodies into motion on treadmills, stationary bicycles, and elliptical trainers. Meanwhile, patrons heave dumbbells and heft weighted balls. And in the group fitness studio, classes punch and kick their way through high-intensity kickboxing routines or breathe steadily as they bend into yoga poses. Such scenes play out daily at each of Better Bodies' three locations. In addition to group training, the gyms also offer one-on-one training from personal trainers with years of experience in the fitness industry, including former Cleveland Indians and Philadelphia Phillies pitcher Mike McGuire. The trainers also boast masters degrees in fitness-related disciplines, including physical therapy and flaming bowling-pin juggling.
Wine and Canvas is a mobile art school, not unlike the roaming palazzos that traveled by rudimentary skateboard throughout the Renaissance era. With paint, canvas, brushes, and aprons in tow, the Wine and Canvas caravan flits from venue to venue, alighting atop bars, corporate tabletops, and home couches. Their team of skilled local artists instructs students in creating the featured painting of the day, which can range from topical still lifes of stylized alcohol to stunning cityscapes. For about three hours, your instructor will guide you through painting technique in a relaxing environment. While you drink with friends or sentient Muppets, you'll put newly skilled hands to paintbrushes, filling a blank canvas with color and life. When all is said and pigmented, you'll take home a brand-new 16"x20" gallery-wrapped painting, proving to naysaying loved ones that you can doodle more than dancing bananas.
