Paranoia Haunted House's sinister staff cautiously opens creaking doors to allow guests to meander through the labyrinthine interior of the otherworldly abode. Doff caps at pumpkin-headed metallic sentinels before crossing the supernatural threshold that leads to sights more spine-tingling than a chiropractic exam performed by a kindergartener. Murderous monsters wielding blood-dripped chainsaws, and machetes chase unwelcome visitors from room to dreary, fog-drenched room. The laughter of a maniacal clown will cause arm hair to leap from its roots, and a strobe-lit corridor will churn brain cells into foolish blobs incapable of comprehending fear or Jeff Foxworthy jokes. The box office opens at 7 p.m. every evening, with spooky expeditions continuing until 11 p.m. on Thursday and the stroke of midnight on Friday and Saturday.
Stitch Pretty's owner, Carla Powell, draws upon a master's degree in textile design to preside over experienced instructors as they coach patrons on modern techniques for crafting sturdy seams in introductory classes. Pupils dust off their own appliances for Learn to Love Your Sewing Machine sessions, during which eight novices practice basics and learn to thread presser feet, switch out bobbins, and give dolls intimidating new limbs. Six students bring materials to feed new Baby Lock sewing machines during Skills for Sewing sessions. Thread jockeys conquer the contraption's controls to perfect fundamental stitches that form straight and zigzag lines and aesthetic embellishment over the course of two hours of hands-on exercises.
With machines set up in rows to encourage competition, many ordinary gyms cater to men's bodies and psychology, right down to the urinals that were "accidentally" installed in the women's locker room. At Curves, you'll move around a circuit of hydraulic resistance machines that have been designed to work with women's bodies and promote weight loss, protect against osteoporosis, and deal with arthritis. An experienced trainer is always nearby to help manage your machine maneuvering and your muscle making. Instead of fiddling with weight stacks and losing your momentum, the hydraulic machines use your body weight and fitness level to create resistance that matches your abilities, decreasing the risk of soreness or injury. Because traditional lift-and-lower motions create bulky muscles, each machine uses push-and-pull motions to create toned, lean muscles perfect for crushing a grapefruit without looking like you can.
As the inaugural concert for the Roswell Presents: True Americana series, The Travelin' McCourys' fast-paced plucking skills tickle eardrums with traditional bluegrass sounds and innovative tone tinkering. Music mavens can cease pondering what whale songs would sound like with a proper complement of backup singers, turning to the authentic sounds of a quartet comprised of mandolin strummer Ronnie McCoury, banjoist Rob McCoury, fiddle player Jason Carter, and upright-bass spinner Alan Bartram. Twenty years on the road have led to celebrated live collaborations with the Allman Brothers, Phish, and Warren Haynes, as well as many acts in and out of the bluegrass community. The group plucks their way through acoustic and sometimes electric performances, treating listeners to inventive experiments that may result in discoveries of new instruments more exciting than the keytar or acoustic stapler. Special guests The Packway Handle Band strum energetic, alternative bluegrass as well.
