There's a lot to do at the annual Pumpkin Festival—get lost in a corn maze, pick your own pumpkins, see a farm animal display, paint your face, visit a small haunted house, trundle across the farm on a hayride, play autumn-themed games. And along the way, built into the harvest-time fun, are kid-friendly lessons in sustainable agriculture and growing food locally. That's because the fest is sponsored by Chris' Farm Stand, a family-run business that makes its home at Silsby Farm. The stand, which sells its goods at local farmers markets, grew out of owner Chris Stasinos' passion for cultivating corn when he was nine. Now a sustainable farmer, Stasinos treats customers to crisp vegetables, sweet corn, and plump pumpkins that are products of his eco-friendly farming practices.
By answering any and all questions about their erotic wares, the staffers at Amazing Intimate Essentials have helped promote safe and sensual trysts for more than 40 years. Their selection of massage oils, lubricants, and adult toys—which occupies stores spread throughout the Northeast and Texas—contains goods from such established brands as We-Vibe, Jimmyjane, and K-Y. They staff female-friendly merchandise, as well as products that help couples create more sparks in the bedroom than a master metalworker soldering a "do not disturb" sign to the door. The staff stresses openness and acceptance in regards to romantic endeavors, an attitude that also fuels their unwavering support of the LGBT community.
Situated in a lakeside mansion dating back to the 1860s, Men's Spa at The Mansion provides a calm and scenic home base for men to enjoy spa and haircare services. While visiting for hot-towel shaves, hairstyling, and manicures, men can enjoy niceties such as a game of pool, sports on flat-screen TVs, or cigar smoking on a deck with a view of nearby Suntaug Lake.
The staff members at Go Platinum Salon and Medspa haven't stopped learning since they graduated from school. By focusing on continuing-education courses and staying abreast of new treatments, they have cultivated a med-spa service list that includes dermal fillers to reduce age lines, laser treatments to remove unwanted body hair, and Image Skincare chemical peels to revivify sagging skin. They also perform traditional spa services to give full-body glows via personalized facials and Aviva sunless spray tanning. They pamper scalps with haircuts and color treatments to create headscapes more dazzling than a mop dipped in glitter and tied around one’s chin. The salon also carries a full array of Jane Iredale Cosmetics so that their clients can beautify themselves at home.

Kickboxing classes deliver a knee to the face of fat, burning up to 860 calories an hour with the high-energy striking moves of martial arts and boxing. All four limbs get in on the bag-bludgeoning action at iLoveKickboxing as each class (a $15 value per class) provides a full-body workout that tones arm, leg, and tentacle muscles while tightening the body’s core and improving balance. Hitting the heavy bags won't skin your knuckles once you don the included boxing gloves, which also double as excellent spring-loaded props for re-creating Three Stooges gags.
