The Big East’s final four teams scorch the nets at Red Bull Arena, dribbling and kicking their way to the conference’s automatic bid for the NCAA Division I men’s soccer championship. After racking up glory and grass stains in a single-elimination tournament played at campus fields, the remaining contenders square off in three games that promise more hands-free excitement than bobbing for apples in a shark tank. Louisville exudes confidence after winning 2010’s championship, but top seeds Marquette and USF wear their "favorite" status like stylish shin guards as they look to etch their names into the tournament’s annals. Meanwhile, Rutgers and West Virginia strike terror into the stitch-paneled hearts of opposing goalies as they try to convert their tournament berths into championship success.

The game takes place on November 27 at 1 p.m. within the friendly confines of Bridgeview’s Toyota Park. The turf warriors of the U.S. Women’s National Soccer Team will employ all the fancy footwork and precision-timed plays in their arsenal in this must-win match against a fierce Italian front. Your sideline-level tickets grant you uninterrupted action vistas featuring Abby Wambach’s diving headers and full volleys. The included 2010 team yearbook commemorates your day at the match, including player’s statistics and soccer pictures that are a bit better than that portrait of you kneeling with a ball from first grade.

Plumes of fragrant steam swirl above bowls as waiters deliver hefty portions of paella to red-linen-topped tables inside Vivo Tapas Lounge. In the paella, clamshells, shrimp, mussel shells, and pearly scallops pop amid a heap of golden saffron rice. The eatery’s paella complements a list of hot and cold tapas, all of which exemplify the restaurant's Zagat rating of very good to excellent food. On small tapas plates, chefs arrange tiny patties of spanish tuna or mushrooms stuffed with onions, bacon, pine nuts, and mozzarella cheese. After meals, the crowd can get to their feet and dance the night away amid colorful beams of light and exposed-brick walls. Sheer curtains cordon off private seating with tufted, high-backed banquettes for VIP parties and laid-back tax audits.

Named by USA Today as one of the top 10 roller-skating destinations in the country, United Skates of America in Tampa provides indoor family fun with a spacious rink and various skating games. Jam skating combines dancing and gymnastic moves set to Top 40 hits, and skating limbo blends the formerly disparate joys of rollerblading and chiropractic therapy. When fatigued by the rigors of the rink, children can refuel on pizza and soda at the snack bar. Inside the arcade, they enjoy games of air hockey and Ms. Pac Man, which teaches kids the importance of a nutritious diet high in fruit and ghosts.

As baseball season draws to an end, and the Newark Bears empty their lockers, specters hiding in the mist materialize to transform Riverfront ballpark into the Stadium of Screams. Daring explorers of the unexplained can traverse through the seasonally haunted attractions, which include haunted locker rooms, where undead actors lie in wait, ready to terrify unsuspecting visitors, and bubbling cauldrons brewing viscous vats of Gatorade. Just beyond the cursed confines, shrieks of terror become shrieks of glee at the Stadium of Screams Fun Zone. Visitors can participate in a free nightly treasure hunt, or spend up to $1 on prize-riddled amusement park games. Costumed actors greet guests for photos and stage fear tastings from 7 p.m. to 8 p.m. and again from 11 p.m. to midnight. Although not included in the price of this Groupon, a hayride ($5) is available to tote guests around the baseball field, granting sublime views of the night sky and an eerily moonlit home plate.

Established in 1909, the Newark Museum gradually expanded from its two-room origins to the bountiful 80 galleries of today, with a campus comprising a one-room schoolhouse, sculpture garden, and planetarium, in addition to the main museum. Traipse through one of the many ongoing exhibits such as The Glitter and The Gold: Jewelry from the Newark Museum, which displays a glinting anthology of jewelry from the early 1700s to the present, including the "Butterfly Lady" brooch from Newark’s historic jewelry industry and a collection of colonial Rolexes. The impressively curated Tibetan Collection brings to life the Himalayan territory through exhibits such as the 15 biographical, narrative paintings of Tsongkhapa–The Life of a Tibetan Visionary, and Pots of Silver and Gold, replete with traditional Tibetan motifs of lotus buds and dragons.
