Gotham Dream Cars lets drivers grip the throttle of exotic speed machines such as the Ferrari F430, Lamborghini Gallardo, and Bentley Continental GT for personal rental or specialized thrill experiences. During the Dream Car Sprint, auto enthusiasts slip into a Ferrari or Lamborghini on a closed course and whip their more than 500-horsepower drive three times around the autocross track, learning how to tame their power with the aid of an instructor before coming out of the third lap on a straightaway to open the engine up to its full potential. Drivers conduct an orchestra of firing pistons and camshafts for three laps before crossing the finish line and parking to the pianissimo of the softly purring V8 engine. Gotham Dream Cars snaps pictures of the sprint, so drivers are sent home with hands they will never wash and a CD of images to parade before jealous coworkers and humbled shopping carts.

She's a celebrity-sought crooner and Parade music writer who's toured with Barry White, Patti LaBelle, and Stevie Wonder, but Ilana Martin founded Vocal Workout Signing School to do something else: teach. Along with fellow vocal coaches Cheryl "Pepsii" Riley, Taharqa Patterson, [Maria Lane]http://gr.pn/1lEIRqe), and Samantha Harrison—singers whose talents, like Ilana's, have also been sought by touring stars—Ilana teaches groups, duos, and individuals. All five of the coaches aim for what Ilana terms a "'me singing' sound," instead of having all pupils sing the same way or lip-sync to whatever is playing on the radio in a given moment. The school's holistic philosophy incorporates awareness of one's mind, body, and spirit, revealing confident tones via a balanced, happy instrument. Forbes and Refinery 29 have each sent their own reporters to work with Ilana, resulting in lighthearted videos that showcase the deft way in which the renowned vocal coach puts nervous pupils at ease.

Simon Herfray, a French native hailing from the Vendée region, is a master's-degree-certified pastry chef and baker. He's whisked and sculpted fine treats for esteemed establishments in the London and New York culinary scenes—Aubaine and Bluebird in South Kensington, Falai and Café M Studio in Manhattan, and Bacchus Bistro and La Défense Bistro in Brooklyn.

At French'Encas, Simon directs his world-class sweetmeat techniques toward kitchens full of apron-wearing students and in-disguise dentists. Whether it's their first or hundredth time gripping pastry bags and whisks, attendees handcraft their very own macarons, chocolate-lemon tarts, chocolate fondant, and full quiche lorraine meals. Some classes cater to advanced students, some cover basics, and others suit all skill levels. And when not instructing students, Simon and his team whip up treats for parties and other events.
