North Fork Horseradish Festival celebrates the uniquely bitter taste of horseradish with everything from recipe contests to cooking demonstrations. Exhibitors and enthusiasts will fill the rolling landscape of Hallockville Museum Farm to join seminars teaching patrons how to use their own horseradish, from harvesting to gardening to cooking. Grinding-horseradish demonstrations show how to manipulate your roots into a more manageable form for cooking, and recipe contests will give you new ideas on how to surprise your family with a spicy kick in their everyday meals.

Hampton Luxury Liner transports its passengers around in a lavish motorcoach that boasts five flat-screen TVs, complimentary WiFi, and an on-bus library. The luxury buses travel to destinations ranging from the Hamptons to Atlantic City, with specific stops at wineries, resorts, and casinos. Reclining leather seats with space for laptops and maximum leg extension typify the cushy interior, and each road cruiser also comes equipped with a library and refrigerator, useful for storing steaks to distract the thousands of chasing dogs such a luxurious bus usually attracts.

The fun-loving gal behind Fun Girls Night Out has been coaxing ladies to cut loose at her glamor-centric events since 2008. She and her team host extravaganzas up and down the East Coast that invite women ages 21 and older to drink, eat, shop, and dance?but mostly to have fun. Each event is unique, introducing guests to a different lineup of vendors and entertainment, but a Fun Girls Night Out always lavishes ladies with a martini bar, wine tastings, makeovers, fashion shows, and dancing. As women peruse jewelry, handbags, and cosmetics, they might sip a cocktail or nibble on gourmet appetizers while listening to live musicians. Often, ladies can even stop at a psychic booth for advice on whether they should take a job in a new city or just learn telekinesis to move the job's office to this city. And those lucky enough to be one of the first 1,000 women to arrive will receive Fun Girls Night Out's signature pink bag, which is loaded with beauty product samples, coupons, and special offers.

Long Island Fear Fest elicits screams with spooky rides and thrills orchestrated by Mr. Slim Chance II and his demented associates. Flashing lights and booming sounds re-create an old-fashioned carnival atmosphere as visitors explore the Chamber of Horrors Haunted House⎯a reworked haunted house that immerses horror lovers in a tortuous cavern of frights filled with Slim and his family of freaks' prized possessions and collection of vintage parking tickets. After a frightful house visit, fest-fiends can hop on the Montauk Monster Haunted Hayride and travel into Long Island’s checkered history, wheeling past terrifying tableaus and paparazzi disguised as hay bales.
