They stir-fry bites of jumbo shrimp and normal-sized pork with either traditional udon noodles or gluten-free, organic buckwheat noodles. Though many of their entrees showcase spicy sauces slathered atop morsels of chicken and beef, the chefs pay equal attention to vegetarian options by turning the spotlight on ingredients such as Szechuan string beans and bean curd.

In order to reach the finish line of the Raid Series obstacle course, participants must hoist a sandbag, leap over marine hurdles, and scale a cargo net. The course is designed to emulate a run through the city streets, right up to the finish line, which is actually a climbing wall. It's one branch of The Raid Series, a trifecta of terrain-inspired 5Ks that also include the Mountain Raid and Beach Raid. After racers complete the course, which is on the sand of Old Orchard Beach just one hour and fifteen minutes from Boston, they can jet to the after-party to enjoy beer and live music.

Stars on Ice's lineup of skaters––who have spun, twirled, and Salchowed to Olympic gold-medal podiums––dazzles audiences with an engrossing spectacle that intertwines music, intricate choreography, and sparkly costumes. Sasha Cohen, the silver-medal-winning Californian who became the first in the state to understand what ice was, fluidly floats to the song “Big Spender.” With skills that snatched two gold medals and charm that graced the pages of People magazine’s 50 Most Beautiful People issue, Ekaterina Gordeeva electrifies the Captain & Tennille’s “Love Will Keep Us Together.” Daunting athleticism underlies the lyricism and surprising visual references to Three Stooges films in the performance of Ilia Kulik, whose gold-medal routine in Nagano saw him slay a quadruple toe loop and eight triple jumps. Those who opt for the meet and greet will brush elbows with some of the stars at the arena, whereas at-home fans can gaze at posters inscribed by the skaters’ delicate bladework.

Warmth from the wood-burning oven just visible in the kitchen mingles with the soft diffused glow of overhanging punched lamps, filling the rustic space with a colonial Mexican ambiance. The chefs draw from modern, Old-World, and australopithecus cooking techniques while simmering dishes such as PEI mussels in chipotle butter, white wine, and mexican tequila. Whenever possible, they base their creations around sustainable seafood, local produce, and meat from grass-fed cows sourced from Pineland Farms. More than 80 tequilas, ranging from newborn blancos to 3-year-old anejos, populate the libations list, and the extensive wine list features vinos from Chile, Argentina, and Italy.
