It's a charity race with a back story like none other: bloodthirsty demons have been working in your community's offices, living in its homes, attending its schools. And now they're on the hunt and people are running for their lives. Citizens might be booking it across a field, seemingly far from the chaos, when shapes emerge on the horizon dressed head-to-toe in vampires' telltale black clothes. If you're a citizen, be prepared to run. If you're a vampire?lock in your target.
That's just part of what you might experience on the Vampire 5K, a twilight fun run where participants can register as "citizens" or "vampires" and take off from two separate starting lines. Both camps eventually converge in a chase that finds vamps trying to convert their mortal counterparts to the dark side. Citizens, dressed in white, sport two garlic flags; if the flags are taken before runners cross their finish line, they switch to a black tee and chase citizens. After the race, a moonlit party finds both camps sipping bloody marys during a dance party and award presentation. The race benefits the Mission to Hear Foundation, which provides hearing aids to underprivileged children, adults, and whatever they're calling the age group that comes in between these days.

Though Maya Cove is far from the beach, stepping foot inside the brightly-colored restaurant might convince visitors?just for a little while?that they're just a pebbles-throw from the frothy ocean. Wall to wall, the interior of the coral-colored is decorated with beach-party ephemera, from an upside-down surfboard hanging over the bar to a papier-m?ch? parrot clutching a beer bottle for all of eternity. The drinks and food mimic the vibe, with items such as Havana chicken sandwiches with a tequila-lime sauce, and classic drinks that include mai tais, margaritas, and ice-cold beers from the taps.
The most difficult thing about the supercar driving experiences at Oxotic might be the first thing drivers do: actually choosing a ride. he company keeps its fleet of uber rare $300,000 supercars. Once drivers make their selection, though, it's a straight shot to the open road. Each experience begins with a brief orientation, during which instructors explain how every doodad in the car works so drivers don't hit the wrong button and accidentally shoot silly string from the exhaust pipe. The driving experiences themselves range from five to 100 miles in length, and souvenirs?such as high-def video recordings of rides?keep adrenalin rushes going long after the pistons stop pumping.
The staff of skilled technicians at Mueller's Auto Inc., an ASE-certified facility, helps to ensure engines stay healthy by serving them refreshing drafts of Valvoline 10W-30 motor oil. During the 30-minute service, mechanics lead used oil out of the car and load in the clean lubricant quart by quart. The technicians then embark on a multipoint tour of the vehicle, checking critical parts such as tires, brakes, and lights to award the vehicle a clean bill of health before sending it off to flutter its wipers at ice-cream trucks.
During a decade when Dirty Dancing was invigorating a generation of hoofers, Broadway Automotive's associates began invigorating horseless carriages with knowledgeable advice and sturdy parts from name-brand manufacturers.
