Invented in the '70s as a humane alternative to the draconian waffle eat-off that previously resulted in oft-disputed rankings, the college bowl system has become a beloved football tradition. With today's Groupon, $35 gets you a ticket to the second annual EagleBank Bowl on Tuesday, December 29, and admission to the all-you-can-eat tailgate feast before the game. Watch the clash of UCLA vs. Temple from the all-star seating section, sated with food from local restaurants and the knowledge that your Pomeranian could probably never get into your jar of premium capers.
The FAA-certified flight instructors at GT Aviation, LLC launch novice pilots safely skyward during each lesson. Students begin in the brick-and-mortar flight school, where teachers versed in the FAA curriculum impart basic knowledge of plane instruments and functions. Pupils then hop into the cockpit of an aircraft for an hour of in-flight training, taking the controls, revving the engine, and singing "Danger Zone" as they ascend into the atmosphere. Upon cresting the clouds, high fliers swoop over the Potomac River while honing navigation skills under the instructor's watchful eye. The lesson whets appetites for adventure in the wild blue yonder, and allows prospective pilots to test their mettle and develop witty in-flight banter before beginning the journey toward complete FAA certification.
THEARC Theater was created out of necessity. The first theater in Ward 8 in Washington, DC, it was founded to provide residents living east of the Anacostia River with expanded cultural opportunities and hide-and-seek spots. Constructed by local nonprofit Building Bridges Across the River, the theater aims to improve the lives of children and adults in southeast Washington through educational, health, and social-service programs such as free theater workshops and youth internships in technical theater management. Noting the tower of glass windows that crowns the entrance, the Washington Post called it "a veritable lighthouse of learning—a $27 million, 110,000-square-foot campus set on 16 beautiful green acres."
"You are smart. You are nice. You are pretty. You are uniquely you." This is the mantra at Viva La Girls Spa & Club, where beauticians aim to increase kids' confidence and expand their brains, too.
