When you hear the name "Washington Auto Show," you might expect to see some new vehicles. However, the name alone doesn't capture the scope of this massive event. At the largest expo of its kind in the Washington area, more than 700 makes and models from 42 manufacturers will fill the Walter E. Washington Convention Center, beckoning guests to take a closer peak or even take one out for a spin. Featured exotic vehicles range from the most expensive to the least expensive, giving visitors a chance to see a wide variety of cars.

In the midst of all the motors, visitors will also find celebrities, and many of them. Depending on the day, you might spot WWE superstar Randy Orton, Duck Dynasty star Sadie Robertson, or Washington football legends Dave Butz, Charles Taylor, and Mark Moseley. Visit on Tuesday for Military Tribute Day, and enjoy a performance by the 257th Army Band, The Band of the Nation's Capital, and a visit from Star Wars characters including Darth Vader and R2D2, presented by the American Red Cross. Throughout the week, visitors can also hangout with the Angry Birds at the family-friendly event.

Standing beneath the German flags fluttering outside with the two-story timber structure of Biergarten Haus looming overhead, one might feel transported to the streets of a small Bavarian village. Inside, the head of an elk looks down at glasses full of more than 25 German lagers and weizens that draw from one of the largest selections of German beer in the area, while warm, doughy pretzels provide what the Washingtonian describes as an "excellent drinking snack" to pair with authentic German schnitzel, sausages, and potato pancakes. Old world meets new with 16 TVs airing sporting events inside the bar, which accommodates up to 400 patrons. Each day, wood burns within the large fireplace and the outdoor fire pits, warming visitors during the fall and winter. Climb the stairs to the rooftop beer garden?one of the largest German beer gardens in DC, and lauded as one of DC?s best by the Washington Post?where tables made of repurposed barrels cluster together underneath cool-water misters. Out back, a second beer garden populated by long, rustic tables is open for year-round Oktoberfest celebrations, and groups can clink glasses to celebrate birthdays or holidays.

District 2 Bar & Grille

District 2 Bar & Grille celebrates all things athletic, with special attention paid to college and professional football. Glasses and towers of beer slake thirst, while the full spectrum of hunger levels can be squelched with house chili, fish 'n' chips, and signature DRG burgers topped with ham and honey barbecue. Themed evenings?which might include karaoke or poker?add to the entertainment.

Jake's American Grille

The "Boiler Room" inside Jake's American Grille looks like something out of a sport's fan's wildest, most buffalo wing-filled dreams. Nine televisions surround the downstairs space, where you can cheer on your team or break for pool and video games. Beer flows from the taps here as well as in the upstairs bar, where bartenders pour Miller and Blue Moon into individual glasses or beer towers for groups to dispense at their leisure.

The brews complement classic American cuisine such as steak, seafood, and burgers. And the decor is fittingly patriotic as well?Navy motifs throughout the space pay tribute to the restaurant's namesake, the owner's grandfather Edwin "Jake" Jablonski.

"Our bodies and minds are closely interconnected. Our state of mind is expressed in physical phenomena, and, conversely, physical phenomena reflect our state of mind," says Dahn Yoga founder Ilchi Lee, "Nothing is impossible. Keep working on it until it's possible. There is no failure, just the gradual process of success." To make this challenging, yet hopeful philosophy accessible to all, Lee combined the Eastern concept of chi energy with his own brain-management system, developing a distinctive program that unlocks inner peace and sweeps up brain clutter caused by the daily stress of always having to find Waldo. Warm-up yoga maneuvers awaken muscles before 30?40 minutes of breathing, stretching, core practice, and meditation?including a signature brain-wave vibration technique that aims to calibrate mental and physical energies. Cool-down exercises ease the body back into quotidian functionality before a 10-minute teatime invites socialization among participants while bolstering pinkie endurance. Dahn Yoga is also taught at independently owned and operated franchises called Body & Brain Yoga.

CEO Peter Harvey believes that a quality gym staff must demonstrate more than technical expertise. "Service doesn't only mean showing someone how to do an arm curl," he says. Certified personal trainers develop workouts that zero in on each person?s specific goals, giving clients the skills to pole-vault over impassable plateaus. By steadfastly refusing to hand out fish in favor of putting on master classes in fishing, they help clients become self-sufficient, educating them on fundamentals.

During these one-on-one sessions, and in solo workouts, guests set calories ablaze atop rows of continually updated equipment. Treadmills, recumbent bikes, and strength-training tools line the walls.

Members can also drop in for as many group classes as they can muster. Inside a separate studio, stationary cycles whir in time with galvanizing music, kickboxing strikes arc through the air, and barbells rise with each BodyPump rep. For more meditative practices, Pilates sessions and several types of yoga enhance flexibility and focus.

Since 1973, each of Sport&Health's 24 clubs has aimed for full fitness coverage with programs for every taste and family member. Guests can spark positive lifestyle changes with workouts and wellness services, or engage in a variety of sports. Each facility houses different athletic amenities for games and laps, from pristine swimming pools to squash and racquetball courts. The camaraderie of group classes such as Zumba and Les Mills BodyPump barbell routines complement scores of gym equipment meant for exercising solo—or with the guidance of a certified personal trainer. The clubs also emphasize kid-friendly activities with arts and crafts, Kidz Klub childcare, and youth certification courses that teach teens the ins and outs of training. Depending on the location, spa treatments can knead tension from muscles and paint one's favorite kettlebell with a layer of Shellac.
