The first thing people notice about Circus Vargas is its big-top tent. Hand-fashioned in Milan from 90,000 square feet of cerulean-blue fabric dotted with yellow stars, the canopy completed the illusion of an elegant lost era when used in the 2011 film Water for Elephants. The last thing people notice is the absence of animals. They're too busy gaping at a man balancing a 12-step ladder with his mouth.
Keeping its marvels strictly human, Circus Vargas builds on a 40-year history by blending classic feats of fearlessness with surprising new tricks. The show features magic tricks along with a skilled hand balancer, a speed juggler, and the wheel of destiny.

Professional paddlers train students of all ages at the beginner level in the sport of table tennis within the walls of Ping Pong Dojo's 3,000-square-foot facility. The dojo's impressive staff consists of coach Weijian Zhang and coach Yin Zhong, both ranked highly in the USATT, the national governing body for the Olympic sport of table tennis. This formidable duo conducts 90-minute group classes on first-class tables that are stately and sturdy enough to serve first-class steak dinners. The center is floored with antiskid material to prevent students from slipping and sliding, while a shock-absorbing surface helps prevent knee-damage. Four large mirrors surround the facility, so players can admire the grace with which they lunge and hurtle, and paddles can admire their perfect symmetry. A variety of training robots are also on hand for automated practice free from the trappings of human emotion. Students must provide their own paddle, or for $2, may rent an Olympic-caliber paddle.
