The characters in Barbara Fox's original shows literally spring to life off the page, just in time to be murdered. Whether held as a public performance or commissioned for a private show, Mystery On The Menu productions challenge audience members to take a hands-on approach to solving the crime. And they should take an interest in the investigation?after all, they might be the culprit and not even know it. Attendees will be given lines to read, and must take on the responsibility of piecing together clues, interrogating fellow party members, and polygraph-testing the tablecloth themselves. Each interactive play ends with the apprehension of an unsuspecting guest, who remains unaware of their character's murderous truth until the fictional cuffs latch.
Lots of parents can probably picture one favorite outfit that their kid would wear everyday if they could. Now imagine how much more kids would love that outfit if they had made it themselves. That's the idea behind C By Me Creative Art Studio, a space that lets kids play fashion designer and embellish their own clothes, hats, and accessories. Kids pick a design theme that can range from rock-star glam to superheroes, then they bring those designs to life with stamps, stencils, paint, rhinestones, and magic wands. Parents can bring their kids by for individual sessions, or book a private party. C By Me even offers summer camps that entertain kids with different crafts each day.
At Animus CrossFit/Corporal CrossFit, students of every skill level, age, and body type can take control of their health with the help of encouraging coaches. The team of qualified trainers draw on intense training experiences in their own lives, such as strength coach and author Carlos Arias's service in the USMC special forces, his wife Jenny's background as a gymnast, or coach Dayron Castaneda's career in collegiate football. The team prides itself on providing one-on-one training and keeping classes small: staff lead premium CrossFit with 1:8 teacher/student ratios, avoiding the overcrowded classes, lack of equipment, and gym-clothes sharing seen in traditional programs. And indoor-outdoor bootcamp classes take advantage of sunny Miami days while avoiding wet ones by training indoors on grass turf or rubber flooring. The small, 16-person classes tailor exercise individually according to skill level and keep things interesting with a combination of gymnastics and running using balls and ropes.
