The Spa at Bob's East saps away stress from bodies and minds with relaxing massages and beautifying skincare treatments that leave patrons aglow. Like out-of-practice necromancers, muscles that have lost the ability to properly animate their skeletons can be kneaded back into working order by an experienced massage therapist during one of four back massages ($70 for one hour), or a 20-minute foot massage ($20).

The Farnsworth Invention closes out the season with a gripping script and an arresting cast. Following the words penned by Oscar- and Emmy-winner Aaron Sorkin—the brain behind the The West Wing and The Social Network University of Evansville's dedicated theater students will ebb and flow under the direction of R. Scott Lank as they convey the compelling, fictionalized tale of television's germination. The production pits the Idaho prodigy and autodidact Philo T. Farnsworth against communications tycoon David Sarnoff. Seizing emotions in its depiction of the small screen's infancy, the story potently portrays the two characters' competitive quest to develop the foundation of what would later become the TV- and Betamax-fueled culture of today.

Our Health Club & Spa corrals a state-of-the-art fitness center and full-service day spa under one roof, helping clients radiate health from the inside out. Weight rooms, a swimming pool, saunas, and a juice bar comprise the physical-focused side of the center, where certified personal trainers monitor form and fitness trainers lead more than 30 classes per week. Pampering is the priority on the spa side, which offers everything from customized therapeutic massages and European facials to gentlemen's pedicures, which skip the polish in favor of a barely perceptible coat of Armor All.

Though the club's focus is mainly on adult activities, kids can flex their growing flippers in one-on-one swimming lessons or socialize with other tykes in a childcare center, where colorful toys spill out from rows of cubbyholes. Seniors will find themselves equally at home at Our Health Club & Spa with arthritis-focuses classes that provide an opportunity to stretch out aches and whirlpools that provide a perfect setting for stage readings of The Caine Mutiny.

Shane Perrin?s love for the standup paddleboard led him to set a world record as the first person to use the simple vehicle to travel the Missouri River?s 340 miles between Kansas City and Columbia. His trek even made him the subject of the documentary Stand Up Guy, which chronicles his odyssey against more than 100 kayakers and canoeists in the sixth annual Missouri River 340.

When he?s not looking for another stretch of water to conquer or out paddling for the Pau Hana Surf Supply team, Shane shares his passion through lessons and guided tours for all levels of outdoorsmen. Venturing out onto waters such as the Meramec River, Shane pays meticulous attention to every detail to help guests have a positive, memorable experience. He starts by matching each client with a standup-paddleboard outfit that suits their stature, which facilitates proper maneuvering. He then provides ongoing training as he guides guests past wildlife such as deer, hawks, and the beavers who built the river?s hydroelectric dams.
