These days, Laura Azbill is constantly researching and thinking of new, exciting ways to live a healthy lifestyle, and how to share that information with her clients. But she wasn't always this on top of health and exercise habits. For many years, she relied on a great metabolism, staying pretty oblivious to what she was eating and doing, until she slowly began gaining weight. She even continued to gain weight while she was training for a marathon and working with a personal trainer. So she decided to make a change, and focus more on her dietary habits along with exercise. Now, Laura Azbill shares the knowledge she gained while studying at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition, helping her clients create practical lifestyle and nutrition plans. Her personalized plans consider each person's unique body type, lifestyle, and goals. Ultimately, for Laura, it's not just about a healthy weight?it's about creating a healthy body, mind, and soul.

Permeated with casual elegance, The Wine Gallery festoons its eclectic menu with classic bistro fare in the form of flavorful salads, soups, sandwiches, and specialties. Let the nibbling commence with starters of chips, dips, spreads, breads, and more, such as the cheese plate, a tour de fromage sidekicked by gourmet crackers and olives ($9), or its smokehouse doppelgänger ($9). Like a whole-wheat aqueduct, the mushroom-spinach pizza siphons a steady stream of silver-dollar mushrooms, mozzarella, feta, and provolone ($8). Chew through an English hedge maze of panko-coated eggplant caprese salad, with mozzarella, tomato, and basil ($5 half, $9 full), then celebrate victory with the succulent, spice-rubbed prime-rib sandwich ($8) or Italian basil-chicken sandwich ($8).

As part of the Miami Valley and Good Samaritan Hospitals Classical Series, New Worlds is a three-part musical odyssey composed of pieces inspired by different visions of America. The evening commences with the whimsical gypsy-folk gallop of George Enescu's Romanian Rhapsody no. 1 before getting shredded by Michael Daugherty's guitar-centric Gee's Bend, an electrifying concerto inspired by the Alabama quilting community of the same name. A different America is explored with Antonin Dvorák's Symphony no. 9 (From the New World), a sweeping swan song written during the Czech composer's many twilight-year adventures in the United States, including the legendary New York Harbor concert where he performed an impromptu duet with the Statue of Liberty.

The history at Victoria Theatre stretches back to 1866, when the "Magnificent Edifice" was first built at First and Main Streets. Its halls have hosted entertainment luminaries of many eras, including Harry Houdini, Mark Twain, and Socrates during his I Know That I Know Nothing comeback tour. In 1975, it was named to the National Register of Historic Places, a list where the Italianate structure still resides well into the 21st century. Today, the Victoria Theatre hosts performances by many of Dayton's arts organizations—including the Dayton Ballet—as part of a full slate of compelling entertainment choices. The Victoria Theatre Association's ongoing programs include the Premier Health Broadway Series, PNC Family Series, and Cool Films, as well as concerts, variety shows, and comedy sets.
