As summer turns to fall, the 200-year-old Nightmare Manor opens its doors to scare-seeking guests. Inside, actors portraying the spirits of the Manor's former residents who died in a tragic fire frighten explorers with detailed scenes and special effects as they transverse a series of rooms and surrounding property that would strike fear into the heart of any human, whether dead or undead. In addition to this macabre attraction, Nightmare Manor also houses an outdoor theater, bungee run, and bonfire.

Set on a picturesque lakefront, Tara Thai reflects its surroundings with an appropriately aquatic design scheme. Here, guests find themselves surrounded by a seascape as they tuck into traditional Thai dishes such as panang curry and rama tofu with peanut sauce. Of course, those inspired by the decor can indulge in seafood specialties such as crispy whole flounder and garlic shrimp.

George Bernard Shaw's Misalliance is a fast-paced comedy that tells the tale of a quiet estate in the English countryside besieged by unexpected visitors, unfortunate conflict, and an airplane crash. A whirlwind of bourgeois and proletariat characters breezes through underwear merchant John Tarleton's family home—including an ambassador, a Polish aviatrix, and a socialist clerk—leaving an alarming mess of upended social norms and broken crockery in their wake. The talented cast features both Olney veterans and novices, all more than up to their theatrical tasks. Take a night off from high-definition squirrel newscasts and catch an unforgettable night of live-acted hilarity that elicits and answers the eternal question, "Anyone for tennis?"

Named after "The Star Spangled Banner" songwriter and Frederick County resident Francis Scott Key, the Frederick Keys have represented the Baltimore Orioles as their Class-A affiliate since 1989. In the decades since, they've claimed the Carolina League championship four times, most recently in 2011. During the seventh inning stretch, up to 5,400 fans rise inside Harry Grove Stadium for a rendition of "We're the Frederick Keys," a song that encourages fans to shake their car keys, house keys, or any Keys player that needs a stern pep talk.

When Dan and Alyce Weinberg purchased the Tivoli in the late 1950s, they imagined its ornate chandeliers and sweeping ceilings watching over concerts and performances that would keep the auditorium as full as it was in the theater's 1920s heyday. After a devastating flood in 1976 almost decimated the space, the Weinbergs and other community members restored the historic theater, which now flourishes as a home for live entertainment, films, and the performing arts.

Novelty shirts airbrushed with bikini-clad bodies provide the convincing, if temporary, illusion of fitness. Find a more permanent fitness solution with today's Groupon: for $45, you'll get an introductory package of Pilates classes from American Dance Institute, a $144 value. Your package includes one private session, one equipment class, and two mat classes. Check out American Dance Institute's schedule for class times.

American Dance Institute's professionally trained instructors undergo more than 600 rigorous hours of training and at least one hour of cat-sitting before they're allowed to teach. The friendly and motivational guides are adept at adapting their workouts to benefit all levels of fitness, from UFC champs to relatively inanimate tree moss. Your private lesson gives you one-on-one access to one of the fitness gurus for a workout fashioned to meet your body's needs and help you reach your personal goals.

The equipment class will teach you to use each of the specialized Pilates machines, which will help you perfect your form in each exercise and extend the benefits beyond what you can do with your body alone. Equipment classes are great for beginners just learning Pilates, and classes are limited to four students, so you'll get plenty of attention. Mat classes offer a series of challenging exercises that don't require any props or equipment (oversized sunglasses, invisible dog leash, etc.). Offered in a group format with no more than 11 students, your mat classes will teach you the skills you need to work out in your cramped apartment or stay fit while traveling.

Pilates allows you to build a rock-solid body without turning into Rocky; strength comes through endurance and repetition rather than pumping pounds of kilograms of iron. Weak backs and flimsy core muscles benefit from the slow but steady regimen. By learning how to move your body using an efficient range of motion, you will leave your session walking taller and less prone to injuries not sustained from lightning. Perhaps the best benefit of all is the buddy-system-style workout built into Pilates. Your motivation comes externally, from cheerful instructors and friendly classmates, rather than from bitterly chanted mantras and tyrannical resolutions.

Reviews

Though there are few online reviews, two Yelpers give American Dance Institute a perfect five stars:

  • The instructors are really attentive to the details - my form and sense of breath have dramatically improved in the short time I've been there. I look forward to every [Pilates] class, they're so much fun and so challenging. – Jessica S.
  • The building itself is immaculate, spotless, and clean. The dressing rooms, and restrooms are impeccable. Its [sic] not an intimidating atmosphere at all… – Kat S.
