Crowds of people wearing white T-shirts, tutus, and old wedding dresses race through the streets during the Funk N Run 5k. They wear white because a rainbow of colors will pelt their clothing during the event. It's not totally necessary to wear white, though; the colored-cornstarch dye will show up on garments of all hues, including black yoga pants. This untimed, noncompetitive race is known for its celebratory party atmosphere, but that's not the only reason to attend; the charitable event also works to give soldiers and their families memorable homecoming experiences.

Landshark Café synthesizes savory stomach set pieces to the sound of live music four nights a week. Its dining-room stage serves up a smorgasbord of sonic flavors—jazz on Friday, mellow reggae on Sunday, and spacey theremin solos on the secret eighth day of the week. Meanwhile, the café's kitchen beauticians slather the winter-pale chunks of chicken or shrimp on luau skewers ($12) with teriyaki sauce before tanning them to a crispy golden brown on the grill. Alternatively, beefy bites such as the mushroom- and onion-laced flat-iron steak ($15) and the pineapple-topped Hawaiian burger ($8.25) restore jaded meat prophets’ faith in the healing power of protein. With beers on tap and a laid-back wait staff, Landshark Café hosts garrulous groups for quick victuals or marathon meals to celebrate the end of a Capri Sun–based detox regimen.

Taught by former NFL cheerleader and current mat maven Nicole DeLoreto, Yoga Mix's schedule of integrated classes combine a variety of yoga styles, focusing primarily on linking movement to breath. The 75-minute mixed-level class welcomes students of all abilities, especially fledgling flexers, who can glean a solid foundation for safe personal yoga practice. With the studio temperature kept in the 80s, muscles become malleable enough to lengthen, stretch, and form rudimentary wings during flowing postures and breath work. More experienced students may strengthen their bodies while honing concentration in a power yoga class practiced in 95-degree heat. Yoga Mix's sweat sessions incorporate inspiring tunes to further encourage students to connect movement with each breathy Sting lyric.

Over the last century, many traditional Mexican dishes have found a comfortable home in American kitchens, from nachos covered in savory toppings to enchiladas and many variations of tacos. Luckily, when visiting El Porto Mexican Restaurant, guests don’t have to choose one of their favorite Mexican dishes over another. Instead they mix and match the shop’s combination dinners. Chefs pair tacos filled with carne asada, marinated pork loin, or fish with enchiladas, chalupas, and chili rellenos.

Chefs even create pairings specially designed for vegetarians, subbing in mushrooms, bell peppers, and spinach for the traditional meats of their dishes. The one thing that doesn’t come with these pairings is desserts, and options range from caramel-kissed flan to deep-fried tortillas filled with bananas, honey, strawberries, and whipped cream like the blimp in a great dream.

The couples eating Valentine's Day dinner at Buddha Thai Bistro would have been flooded with rose pedals, if not for the gauzy tapestries that hung from the ceiling and held them aloft. The eatery's ceiling is a canvas that changes with the seasons, sporting hundreds of folded paper sculptures for the Thai New Year or colorful streamers for other celebrations. Though the decor fluctuates, Buddha Thai Bistro's commitment to flavorful cuisine remains constant. In the kitchen, seven varieties of curry simmer with meat and vegetables, fried rice sizzles alongside eggs and glass noodles, and extra spices lend a sobering kick to drunk-man noodles, served for lunch or dinner. A new vegan menu offers dishes such as soy shrimp and papaya salad and tofu egg rolls, and a robust wine menu helps diners pair reds, whites, and sakes with their meals.

Pilates on 3rd's owner Neely Hufnagel set out to make her studio differ from other Pilates centers. Though she credits Pilates' body-sculpting techniques for transforming her body into figure-competition shape, she also fills her studio with high-energy cross-training classes and healing yoga sessions to provide her customers with some variety. Along with Neely, the certified staff leads patrons of all ages and abilities in myriad muscle-building and limb-stretching classes, including Pilates on the reformer, Pilates on the Chair, Pilates on the Tower, Pilates and TRX Fusion Classes and Yoga. The TRX and Reformer machines utilize a system of ropes and pulleys to help patrons sculpt lean limbs with the help of their own bodyweight. Upon entering the upscale boutique studio, guests are greeted with a spa-like atmosphere decked in gleaming wood floors, tropical plants, and delicate orchids, who graciously curtsey to the best-performing athletes on their way out.
