As they enter the training circle at Curves, female guests come face-to-face with the smiles of other women. And just as points on a circle share a common distance from the circle's center, workout participants share the experiences of those nearby by trading stations throughout the 30-minute training session. One minute is spent on a piece of strength-training equipment built for feminine frames and designed to work two opposing muscle groups with a single movement. Exercisers then move on to a recovery station, where they run, jog, or dance to maintain heart rates and keep platforms in place during momentary losses of gravity.

The aromas from The Bistro's diverse menu of sandwiches, fresh seafood, and herb-roasted chicken drift out to diners chatting on outdoor seating that overlooks the Riverwalk. Patrons can fashion a six-wing guitar for an appetizer jam session with a half-dozen wings slathered in a slew of sauces or let forks fall through delicate Maryland crab cakes ($23.50). Shower fresh greens and aged cheddar with an autumnal rain of cranberries and walnuts in the tart apple salad ($8.25) or eschew silverware like a bib model while devouring a sauerkraut-laden turkey Reuben on marble rye ($8.95). As courses vanish in puffs of mouthwatering smoke, skilled chefs pan-sear a fresh salmon fillet beside a steaming garden of green beans and potatoes ($17.50) and promote fruit collaboration with pieces of warm apple and cranberry cobbler ($5.25).
