The acoustics in Uncle Bo's Live are as smooth as the ambiance. The blues venue hosts singers and performers amid the backdrop of a recycled cobblestone floor, plus woodwork and stained glass that once was in the old governor's mansion. While listening to Grammy and International Blues Society award winners croon, audience members can relax with drinks from the full bar or a menu of barbecue dishes.

For those who can't pry themselves out of their seats until late into the evening, the attached Ramada Downtown boasts guest rooms with a free breakfast buffet.

MVP Sports Magazine gives readers a waxy-paged window into the world of the young athletes and high-school programs that define the sports landscape in Topeka and Shawnee County. The quarterly publication covers the notable sports teams from nine area high schools—including Topeka High School, Topeka West High School, and Washburn Rural High School—along with area athletes competing in nonsanctioned sports, such as motocross, rodeo, and contacting extraterrestrials by Morse code flashed with a pocket mirror. Though MVP Sports Magazine publishes past issues online, an active subscription gives readers access to colorful, photograph-laden issues they can proudly display on their coffee table or tool bench.

For more than 125 years, YMCA of Topeka has been helping people bolster their muscles, and today invites people to tone up in three full-service facilities and the 175-acre outdoor fitness retreat, Camp Hammond. Members enjoy a slew of body-boosting benefits, swimming laps in three indoor swimming pools, walloping orbs on nine racquetball courts, and flexing their muscles in six gymnasiums. Hone your physique in any of the more than 120 fitness classes (certain classes require additional fees), including aquatic fitness classes that proffer workouts that are as comforting to joints as an obstacle course made of marshmallows. Outdoors enthusiasts can also explore Camp Hammond's 15-acre lake, swimming dock, canoes, and nature trails. Included in today's deal is a coaching session with a trained wellness coach to discuss goals and receive an introduction to the fitness equipment.

Personal trainer Jamie Neal didn't like the stuffy, crowded atmosphere of larger gyms. So she began seeing her clients in their homes or at the community center, allowing them to bring their own motivational music and avoid mobbed treadmills. She hosts one-on-one and group workouts as well as boot-camp programs, some of which include nutrition plans, shopping lists, and regular evaluations of each student's progress.
