Practice Yoga on Fifth focuses on Ashtanga (breath synchronized with fixed postures) and Vinyasa (linking movement with breath) yoga styles, emphasizing the physical, mental, and spiritual benefits of the practice. The staff of talented instructors teaches a varied set of classes appropriate for both beginners and yogis more bendable than taffy warmed in a British child’s pocket. A drop-in beginner's class (currently offered Tuesdays at 5:30 p.m.) takes a slow, gentle pace to acquaint brand newbies with postures, and open-level Vinyasa teaches accessible endurance-building, flexibility-enhancing sequences in a room heated to 85 degrees Fahrenheit. More-advanced classes include Hot Vinyasa—a sweaty, stretchy 90 minutes of challenging poses in 95-degree heat—and the Ashtanga primary series, a fast-paced sequence of 72 postures with synchronized breath.

Wall Street Nightclub’s goal is simple: as stated on its site, the venue aims to provide entertainment every bit as diverse as its community. Throughout the week, the LGBT venue might pair country music with hip-hop, drag performers with strippers, or DJs with dance videos. Friday nights kick off each month with the "Midwest's largest lesbian dance party," and Sundays see the club transformed into a cabaret. Although its calendar is packed with weekly, monthly, and bicentennial get-togethers, plenty of performances and parties are special one-time-only events, such as standup sets or DJ competitions.

Over the course of one intensely laugh-filled week, 40 comics vie for the chance to perform across the country. The skilled performers arrive from all over North America, bringing their sharpest, most surprising, and banana peel-filled material to the stage. As the field is whittled down—nine comedians perform on Friday, six compete at 7:45 on Saturday, and the top three duke it out later that evening at 10:30—the Regional Grand Prize draws ever closer. The winner receives an all-expenses paid trip to the Las Vegas finals, where the victorious comic will receive a year-long performance contract to appear at clubs nationwide.

Winning best haunted house in Active Dayton's 2011 Best of Dayton awards and lauded by the bloggers of Ohio Valley Haunts for a "very loud soundtrack [that] assaults the senses in accompaniment to the various atrocities," the designers of Dayton's Haunted Butcher House horrify guests with new macabre spectacles each year. Characters, such as clowns wielding meat cleavers and the undead springing forth from oversize jack-in-the-boxes, are just some of the haunts that have rattled visitors in years past on the unguided tour. To further heighten fear levels, the building itself becomes another character, confounding the living with moving floors, strobe lights, and mysterious voices that predict another year of slow economic growth.
