Roadrunner may be an iconic cartoon, but at DNA Sports' Center Speed School, the trainers probably wouldn't laugh at his antics. For them, speed is no joke. It's essential to success in any sport, and they help athletes age 7 through adult hone it with explosive custom workouts, set in a 14,000-square-foot training facility.
In the same facility?home to an indoor turf field, rowing machines, and fitness sleds?the trainers host other types of workouts, too. They coach athletes in specific sports, for instance, ranging from football to softball. They also lead calorie-torching boot-camp classes for adults, which tone the entire body more effectively than doing jumping jacks for 24 hours.

Taste of Belgium follows an authentic family recipe to make its waffles out of thick dough and coarse Belgian beet sugar. A specialized cast-iron press then crushes the dough into its distinctive waffle shape and caramelizes the sugar in the process. This gives the waffle a rich vanilla flavor and a delightful sweetness that doesn't require syrup. As such, you can eat waffles on the go without plates, forks, or Catholic guilt.

In a Midwestern city that's hundreds of miles from the ocean, it can be hard to find fresh seafood. But Coastal 864's chefs hope to change that by bringing lowcountry crawfish and seafood boils to landlocked patrons. In their mobile kitchens, they cook everything from fresh crawfish imported from Louisiana to shrimp to blue crabs in a lemongrass stock, then toss the spice-rubbed morsels in a garlic butter sauce. All of their boils come with sides of roasted corn, kielbasa, and red potatoes.
They also offer drop-off catering for events such as birthday parties, holiday gatherings, and tailgates, giving patrons a break from the traditional game-day food of hot dogs cooked on a hot car radiator. Plus, they pair their Cajun creations with domestic and imported beer.
Inside HoneyBaked Ham, chefs uphold the same traditions that Harry J. Hoenselaar created more than 40 years ago. Back then, he chose individual hams, cured them in his secret marinade, and smoked them over hardwood chips before offsetting the earthy flavor with a crisp, sweet glaze. To this day, the staff makes the signature bone-in hams one at a time and glazes them in the shop.
To go with the meats, the kitchen whips up classic side dishes and desserts, such as the sweet-potato souffl?. For less formal feasting, party trays and packed lunch boxes fuel business meetings, backyard grad parties, and lengthy end-zone celebrations.
