At each Tropical Smoothie Cafe location, healthy choices abound with drinks consisting of fresh fruit and snacks loaded with veggies and premium meats and cheeses.

Painting classes with Uptown Art - Uncorked allow artists of all ages and skill levels to spend a few hours expressing their creative impulses. Each session focuses on a designated theme, based on the style of a particular artist, such as Monet, or a particularly beautiful still-life subject, such as gerber daisies or a puddle of spilled tabasco sauce. For groups of aspiring Picassos or people with more than three hands, the studios also host painting parties to accommodate birthday celebrations, bachelorette soirees, work retreats, and sorority events.

Farley’s Ballroom fills with the rhythmic rush of fluttering feet during weekly group dance lessons and private instruction sessions. During six-week beginner courses, dancers can fly solo or flock together in group lessons for individuals or couples on Mondays from 7 p.m. to 7:50 p.m. Instructors draw from a rotating slate of styles that, like months on a bargain-bin calendar, change every three weeks, so participants will learn two distinct genres during each course period, including tango and rumba (November 7–December 12) or the waltz and cha-cha (December 19–January 23). For more intense tutelage, one-on-two private lessons instruct couples in ballroom, Latin, or swing dancing. Dance masters schedule private lessons on any day of the week, calibrating training intensity depending on dancers’ goals, prior experience, and ability to withstand getting served.
