On Saturday, March 7, a weeklong seafood festival culminates in its grandest event: a celebration of the ocean's bounty at Shelter Cove Community Park. Ten local restaurants including Black Marlin, Kurama Japanese Restaurant, and the Old Oyster Factory serve up creations straight from their beachy kitchens. But the sea is represented in more than elegant edibles at this freewheeling event. Alongside the Kids Zone and vendors selling arts and crafts, the organizers host a thrilling crab race, and Calypso rhythms drift up from the loop box of multi-instrumentalist Zach Deputy. Motown and soul outfit Deas-Guyz back him up as the second headliner, and a silent auction ensures guests get a chance to take home a keepsake from the event.
Certified, experienced technicians rejuvenate rides with a multipoint inspection, and then ensure many more miles of effortless pothole avoiding with a quick, effective oil change. Finally, an exterior cleansing gives crusty cars a thorough outer overhaul. Windows are scrubbed until they perform as mirrors, and mirrors are polished until the objects in them appear cleaner than they may be.
Getting your car washed shouldn't be an all-day task. Ultimate Carwash presents a full lineup of express and full-service washes available seven days a week. Four-tiered express washes run rides through the wash tunnel for quick doses of underbody wash followed by a touch-free dry. The staff takes a more hands-on approach during full-service washes, polishing tires and rims, cleaning windows, and vacuuming and wiping down interiors to erase fingerprints left by elves on a joy ride. As customers wait for their vehicles to emerge, they can visit the adjacent convenience store to purchase snacks, coffee, or soda, and enjoy them at a table so as not to sully their refreshed car interiors.
The coaching staff at D1?which is co-owned by professional athletes such as NFL player Peyton Manning, MLB player Chipper Jones, and NFL player Philip Rivers?refuses to discriminate between professional athletes and everyday exercisers. They scale the strength-and-cardio workouts of their group boot-camp classes and one-on-one intensive courses to individual abilities, bringing out the best in each student regardless of his or her workout history.
The typical D1 gym houses modern indoor turf fields with adjoining weight rooms, giving instructors the space to invent expansive obstacle courses that may require students to lift tires or tug 747s. In the boot-camp program, coaches meet with students one-on-one to discuss progress and find ways to improve. Each facility also houses a sports-therapy clinic, where expert therapists ease muscle injuries through rehabilitation programs and strength-restoring exercises.

Guests can find restful vibes manifested in a bevy of mattress brands, from Sealy to Simmons, and types, from memory foam to latex.
