When it comes to describing Kristin Chenoweth, "multitalented" is an understatement. Overlaying a soaring voice with sparkling charisma, Chenoweth won the 1999 Tony for best featured actress in a musical and originated the role of Glinda the Good Witch in the smash Broadway hit Wicked, earning both fame as the definitive incarnation of that character and the legal right to carry an Oz passport. Her forays into television have included an Emmy win for Pushing Daisies, a stint on The West Wing, a guest appearance on Glee, and a starring role in ABC's new comedy GCB. Mixing classically trained control with the ability to call up a folksy twang from her childhood in Oklahoma, Chenoweth regales audiences with heartbreaking ballads and high-energy romps.

More than 10 years ago, a young couple dreamed up Titans Gym—a 24-hour facility that would house exercise equipment, tanning services, and a cafe teeming with nutritious snacks. Since then, Geoff and Niki DelGrosso have laid the bricks of that ambition, packing their two gyms with row upon row of advanced Strive, Precor, and Magnum equipment and three levels of professional tanning beds. The duo hired a team of fitness instructors to lead an abundance of group exercise classes, personal-training sessions, and surprise games of Red Rover in their private studios. To refuel exercisers, the onsite Titan Up café serves up a dietician-designed menu of wholesome smoothies, pizzas, and desserts. In the end, the couple's efforts have earned accolades from numerous fitness media publications, and their studios have won the title of Best Urban Gym from Cleveland Scene magazine.

The downtown lounge and golfery boasts six high-def golf simulators—massive windows that transport you into the scenic world of one of 16 top golf courses—along with a full menu of spectator fare in a fun and casual environment. During your retreat from the unmanicured greens of the everyday, you and your three closest friends or parolees will get four hours to play 18-hole golf on one of the course simulators; choose to use the lounge’s provided clubs, or bring your own for optimal swinging success (up to an $86 value). Shoot a fake round among the dramatic beauty of Pebble Beach or the lush tropical sights of Miami’s Blue Monster. When your ball touches the screen, the simulator picks it up and carries it to the exact locale on the virtual course—based on your sphere’s speed, height, and velocity—allowing you to show off, swagger, or cower in shame at your real-life abilities on the simulated greens.

Winter's icy grip is harshest in the water, yet the intrepid souls who sign up for the Cleveland Polar Plunge thumb their noses at Father Winter for a good cause and, of course, a party. Each pays for the privilege to dive into the frigid shallows of Lake Eerie, their money and that of the event's sponsors going to benefit the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation and Team Fox, the Parkinson's disease research organization founded by Michael J. Fox. After the event, each cold-weather diver warms up with a knit cap and happy-hour festivities with drinks and food at Liquid where Masters of Disasters will play a live set.
