Color Me Rad stages 5K races that transform runners into mobile rainbows by launching cheerful barrages of colored cornstarch. Each color station along the racetrack flings a new, nontoxic pigment at passersby, who wear white shirts to enhance the chromatic onslaught's costuming effects. Brilliant neon-blue, green, purple, and yellow clouds dapple participants along the way, and the race concludes with a prismatic finish-line finale as sprinters chuck colors at each other in celebration. The race's noncompetitive credo shifts the emphasis from speed to silliness, and a portion of its proceeds go to local charities.
Upon registration, each runner collects a Color Me Rad T-shirt, sunglasses, sponsor gifts, and a race bib. Though they don't receive a gift packet, runners younger than 8 years old can sprint for free, provided they have a waiver signed by a guardian and won't give in to demands for gold from confused leprechauns.
SakiTumi's menu of sushi and international grilled grub is crafted from fresh, high-quality ingredients. The culinary curtain rises for opening acts of edamame ($4), which recite moving soliloquies of soybeans and pink Hawaiian sea salt. The Cali roll ($5) serves up an exciting head-on collision between Osaki crab, avocado, and cucumber, while the rainbow roll ($15) presents a palatable spectrum of crab, salmon, and tuna that leads to golden gems of eel. The Fire Island roll on soy paper ($14) is a SakiTumi specialty, featuring tempura shrimp and avocado, topped with diced tuna pieces that are mixed with a sassy sriracha sauce. A variety of grilled goodies are sensitive to recovering fish fiends, who can sink their mouth bones into the meaty Kobe burger ($12) or brawl with the Sapporo steak ($18), which comes armed with asparagus spears and a mashed potato posse.
New Life Fitness World motivates calories crusaders with personal trainers and more than 140 hours of group classes. Launch fitness plans in a one-on-one training session before bounding into any of the four locations' exercise courses, such as cycling, Zumba, and Piyo, a combination of yoga, Pilates, and trick yo-yoing. After land-based laps around the indoor tracks, or the aquatic equivalent in the indoor heated pools, fit fiddles can indulge in a sauna steam, a hot-tub soak, or a tanning session. Towel service and locker rooms facilitate transitions out of the gym, while childcare frees parents from the stress of pushing strollers while jogging on the treadmill.
