Maryland Wineries Association curates the abundant spread of wineries and vineyards that dot the state?s landscape, keeping tabs on the more than 400 wines they produce. Holders of the Maryland Wine Passport wind their way through the state?s six wine trails, tracking their progress as they taste vintages and take photos with their favorite vines. The site also keeps track of local wine news and upcoming winery events.
At Adams County Winery, grapes mature in rich Pennsylvania soil before being used in recipes for bacchanalian beverages that have earned a place on Central PA Magazine’s 2010 Hot List. Married vintners John and Katherine welcome visitors to explore their more-than-30-year-old cellars during a private tour. Guests are escorted through the winery, which is housed in a 19th century Pennsylvania bank barn and can peek in on where the white, red, and fruit wines come to life. Starring among the rubicund inebriants is the Rebel Red, a semisweet wine with a dry finish, and the team of whites claims the Tears of Gettysburg, a Niagara blend as storied and sweet as a skyscraper made of cake. Nosh on regional munchables in the form of local summer sausage, cheese, and crackers. Visitors head home with two wine glasses and a waiter-style corkscrew inscribed with the Adams County Winery logo as well as a golden keepsake ornament.

Hollywood Tans, one of the nation’s largest chains of tanning salons, turns dermises gold with a special alchemic process known as Tanetics. Skin specialists consider each customer’s tanning goal, skin tone, and skin sensitivity before helping them choose the perfect skin-shading procedure. Four clean and comfortable types of stand-up UV tanning-booth options filter out most pestiferous UVB rays while speedily darkening pigment. Pricing varies, but five 11-minute bouts inside Hollywood Tans’ HT42 booth ($30) are enough to leave any pelt polished with a glossy base tan. For Daphnes fleeing Apollo, a Mystic spray-tan booth (starting at $19) depales pasty parchment with a misty coat of bronze that can last 5–7 days. The Mystic’s cartridges can be changed to allow users great flexibility in choosing their preferred skin patinas, or they can be purchased in bottle form for do-it-yourself home applications (starting at $19). A plethora of lotion is available to give your skin a longer lasting hue and moisturize your dermis until it's a glowing beacon of hydrated human hide.
