At Sam's Hudson Beach Bar & Restaurant, grill masters serve up a menu of fresh seafood and tasty burgers among tropical adornments and breathtaking sunsets. Starters compose a palatable prelude to beachside meals, with fried green tomatoes ($5.95) basking in the tangy splendor of their unripe youth and plates of lightly breaded gator ($8.95) gripping hunger pangs in their jaws and dragging them into a pool of dipping sauces. Entrees of beer-battered fish and chips tastefully combine libations and edibles ($10.95), and a marinated Island Grilled Chicken Sammy ($8.95) enraptures taste buds with a tropical garnish of pineapple, slaw, black beans, and rice. Meanwhile, beefy fare takes the form of the Paradise burger ($7.95), in which a half-pound of Angus stacks atop garden fixings to fill mouths and create ketchup mustaches.

Studying martial arts since the late 1970s, John and Cindy Ingram made Okinawan Karate a part of their daily lives. When their sensei retired, he passed on his school to the couple, and they continued to train new generations of fighters, including their daughter, Sheri. Sheri also became a teacher, and Ingram's Okinawan Karate stayed in the family.

Today, she and her staff teach karate classes for students of all ages, focusing on building character and improving fitness, not just learning to fight. They take a very traditional approach to the fighting form, feeling that its essence has been diluted over the years by many other schools. This means that they start each student's education with basic katas, while cultivating a culture based on honor and discipline within the school.

The staff at Family Fitness Centers recognizes that good health and smart fitness habits often get their start at home. To help nurture a healthier regimen for the entire family, the gym has three locations throughout the Tampa Bay region, each with a number of programs designed to educate members on nutrition or jump-start metabolisms with boot camp and group fitness classes. Kids Club, or child care, is offered at all locations, while select locations offer pediatrician-supervised programs that help kids stay healthy by incorporating group exercise, emphasizing taking daily vitamins, and teaching kids how to cut an apple with only their mental prowess. Senior programs are also available and personal trainers are on hand to offer one-on-one sessions for more personalized attention.

Gator Paintball’s 27-acre facility boasts 10 diverse courses full of stealthy hiding spots. Players can choose how to divide their days among any of the courses. Suit up in provided gear and head for the Graveyard speedball course, where dearly departed hamster ghosts have the advantage over speeding paintballs this time. The Western Ghost Town course features an underground mine tunnel, an array of spooky edifices, and vehicles sitting at a spine-tingling standstill. Finally vindicate your genie wish for the ability to see through wood inside a two-story log cabin, or navigate a tree-filled field that surrounds a three-story castle. Regular hours are 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays, and the facility opens during the week for reservations of at least 10 people. Other on-site features include spectator viewing on five fields, cooling mist fans, and a community of budding paintball artists. Reservations are recommended.
