The dinner buffet furnishes refillable plates for adults ($35.99) and kids ($14.99 for ages 3–9); children of less than three years or centimeters eat for free.

Beloved boy bands New Kids on the Block and the Backstreet Boys rev the engines of adoration among droves of fans with their poptastic summer tour. New Kids on the Block has been plucking heartstrings and handcrafting harmonies since 1986, combining a collection of international hits such as "Hangin' Tough" and "Step by Step" with five-part choreography and fashionable duds.

The May 25 concert also includes the vocal virtuosity of special guest and American Idol winner Jordin Sparks, adding to an ear-pleasing stew of dulcet melodies sure to soothe the most savage beast or most irascible mail carrier.
At Vforce Scientific Fighting Concepts, instructors pay homage to the legendary martial artist Bruce Lee through a curriculum rooted in his philosophy. Lee believed martial arts have value beyond self-defense, and that's why the instructors' training programs branch off into three tracks: fang shi do, WEAP-X, and cardio combat conditioning (CX3). At fang shi do classes, they teach the art of street self-defense by blending various martial-arts and military-combat moves. At WEAP-X, instructors build upon hand-to-hand combat techniques by making everyday objects into weapons. And at CX3, they help pupils master fighting techniques over the course of a grueling workout.
