Lucky Fest helps revelers safely usher in America's greenest holiday by gathering 25 custom-built pubs along a single stretch of 11th Street. Each makeshift mead hall has taken on a unique theme for St. Patrick's Day. Guests can visit Grace O'Malley's Fantastic Voyage to enjoy a drink at a 16th-century pirate-themed alehouse built upon a converted clipper, then swing past MacGowan's Karaoke Bar to belt out a favorite tune or deliver a rousing pep talk backed by Pointers Sisters tracks. Funny bones are tickled by visiting comedians from around the country during a drop-in at Patty O'Flynn's Comedy Shop, while the Irish Bar Bar Shop's barber chairs welcome visitors to stop in for a quick trim before they head to The Docks to pose for a souvenir photo with the Sea Maiden of the Celtic Sea.

Any veteran of the first-person shooter genre of video games knows that half the fun lies not only in blasting away at opponents, but also in customizing your loadout, memorizing level layout, and ultimately mastering team tactics. The creators of World Extreme aim to bring this experience to life, packing their 10,000-square-foot arena with dense urban-style terrain. They arm players with their custom radio-frequency-style weaponry, in the shape of M4s, MP5s, or AK-47s. They program each weapon to simulate specific circumstances, from free-for-all battles to team bomb-setting exercises. Unlike at most laser-tag arenas, when a well-placed shot knocks a player out of the game, they must scour the field for a respawn box to reenter play, adding extra stakes to the contest.

As they enter the training circle at Curves, female guests come face-to-face with the smiles of other women. And just as points on a circle share a common distance from the circle's center, workout participants share the experiences of those nearby by trading stations throughout the 30-minute training session. One minute is spent on a piece of strength-training equipment built for feminine frames and designed to work two opposing muscle groups with a single movement. Exercisers then move on to a recovery station, where they run, jog, or dance to maintain heart rates and keep platforms in place during momentary losses of gravity.

Of the 12 music teachers at Barker's Music, most have taught there for more than 18 years. So all of the instructors have plenty of experience teaching their chosen instrument. Music lessons cover piano, guitar and bass, violin, drums, harmonica, and voice. But the staff members also demonstrate their musical expertise in other ways, including tuning pianos and repairing guitars. And party hosts can call upon the Kyle Barker Band, which plays events ranging from birthdays to going-away parties for your noise-sensitive neighbors.
