The Antiques Dealers Association of California is something of an antique itself—founded in 1924, it is swiftly approaching its hundredth birthday. However, the organization's brainchild, the Los Angeles Antiques, Art + Design Show, has a distinctly modern edge. Up-and-coming artists, hip antiques dealers, and local galleries are the stars of the show, exhibiting their wares for crowds of art enthusiasts. Throughout the weekend of high culture, lecturers and panelists sound off on current and on-the-horizon design trends. The show even kicks off with a celebrity-attended red-carpet affair benefiting the LA County Museum of Art (LACMA).

The 65-foot fishing vessel known as the Spitfire nominally calls dock 52 on Fiji Way home. However, between three-quarter day fishing trips, twilight fishing trips, and chartered excursions, it seldom stays moored for long. Most often, it can be found slicing through the waves under the steady hand of its captain, helping up to 80 fisherfolk chase calico bass, rockfish, and perch through the waters. To keep its passengers fueled up enough to reel in the big one, the Spitfire boasts a galley whose chefs serve hot meals, cold beers, and sodas chilled by being used as ice-fishing bait.

Capoeira, an African-Brazilian art form, combines dance, martial arts, music, and acrobatics. All of these elements come together in a circle known as a roda, where capoeira's participants perform improvised movements. Omulu Capoeira Los Angeles, a nonprofit organization, welcomes all types of students into its roda, regardless of age or fitness level. By teaching capoeira, instructors help their students lose weight and build strength, in addition to learning to play musical instruments and sing traditional songs in Portuguese.

When she was growing up in India, in Britain, and in North America Kaumudi Marathé ate an eclectic array of international foods. While living in the United States, she began to blend Indian cooking techniques and spices with American ingredients, resulting in what she dubs "California Indian." Rather than keep these culinary gems to herself, she established Un-Curry to introduce others to her style of cooking and to shatter the belief that all Indian food is made of curry.

This introduction takes the form of catering and cooking classes, which cover a variety of subjects. Spices 101 grants students the low-down on spices including cumin and asafetida, and Indian Bread Basket teaches students the techniques for making naan. Marathi Salad Bowl plucks recipes from Marathé's home state of Maharashtra, which is known for its rich vegetables, and California Indian takes students on field trips to local farmers' markets in search of seasonal veggies and matching sweater sets.

Sweat Pilates prides itself on not being a typical gym. Case in point: one of its classes involves doing cardio workouts while bouncing on a trampoline. That's just one of several classes customers can engage in to shake-up their typical workout. 75-minute CoreStretch classes combine deep stretching with Thai yoga and Pilates, allowing students to concentrate on breath work and body awareness, while the signature Sweat Pilates sessions utilize Proformer machines, which allow students to better target muscles, improve flexibility, and climb on someone else's furniture without reproof. But no matter which class students choose, Sweat Pilates is dedicated to making sure they have fun in a positive environment.
