In 1988, Auntie Anne's founders Anne and Jonas Beiler purchased a Pennsylvania farmers'-market stand, where they experimented with dough until they created a pretzel that seemed to strike the perfect chord with their customers. Today, at their more than 1,350 locations worldwide, the pretzel makers still hand roll the original recipe but have added to the menu with inventive options such as the eight signature dipping sauces. The team constantly explores new uses for the pretzel dough, such as wrapping it around hot dogs and slicing it into bite-size nuggets. To transform the snack into a meal, they accompany it with specialty drinks, including frozen-lemonade desserts.
When not twisting dough, Auntie Anne's team partners with the national charitable organization Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation, which raises funds to fight childhood cancer. Auntie Anne's also reaches out to the community through fundraising opportunities.

There's no end of things to do at Dover Downs. Head to one part of the hotel and entertainment complex to find table games; elsewhere, there's a relaxing spa and live harness racing. But on the hotel's second floor?overlooking the main lobby?the entertainment is edible. Michele's dining room hosts a collage of fine wines and cuisine from around the world, including sushi that's flown in daily and lobster tails sourced from South Africa, otherwise known as the lobster-tail of the continent. On some tables you'll find volcanic stones, which keep rib eye steaks and other meats the perfect temperature.
As for drinks, the selection changes constantly, with wines rotating in from the likes of Italy, France, and California. Although there are dozens of reds, whites, and sparklings, diners shouldn't have too hard a time making a selection. Most entrees come with a suggested pairing?for instance, a California cabernet sauvignon from Sebastiani helps bring out the flavors of the house-smoked prime rib.
Dozens of sneakers pound Brickhouse Cardio Club Dover?s hardwood dance floor in time to a pulsating beat. When attending one of the club?s Zumba, Hip Hop Hustle, or TurboKick cardio-kickboxing classes, students can contribute to this booming chorus as they let loose and burn calories in groups of up to 50. Certified fitness instructors set a frenetic pace for most dance classes, though they occasionally slow things down for a relaxing yoga session. As soon as their larger groups file out of the studio, they lead personal-training sessions that allow for a workout experience more intimate than bench-pressing a stack of friends? diaries.
