With its bright yellow walls speckled with Disney decals and bright stickers, Fun Time Pottery invites artists of all ages and skill levels to work in a cheery, creative atmosphere. During open paint sessions, participants choose a piece of pottery from the overflowing shelves that line the room, using stencils and paints to add their own personal touches to plates, mugs, and figurines. Pottery classes let students delve into the intricacies of clay shaping, with instructors teaching their charges how to bring forth new objects from shapeless lumps of clay, and how much paprika to add to play-doh before it’s edible. After finishing their sculpting, pupils learn how to paint and glaze their works, creating unique keepsakes from start to finish.

The practice dummy at Budokai Fitness & Self-Defense has a scowl on his face. Maybe he was molded that way to look menacing, or maybe it’s because he’s being subjected to a barrage of students’ punches and kicks during Budokai’s adult and kids’ martial-arts classes and personal-training sessions. Helmed by Sensei Fritz Michel, Jr., the classes take an MMA approach and combine effective techniques from disciplines such as karate, judo, and other martial-arts styles. Sessions cover techniques such as striking, take-downs, throws, and submissions, and also incorporate stretches and calisthenics during warm-ups.

The annual International Great Beer Expo assembles more than 50 breweries from around the world at Long Island's Belmont Park Racetrack.

Beers truly hail from all corners of the world, including Lebanon, Indonesia, Nicaragua, and New Zealand, in addition to places famed for their brews such as Ireland, Belgium, and Germany.
