Earning a nod as Best Art Gallery in the Akron-Canton area from Fox 8’s Hot List in 2009 and a nomination for the Wooster 2010 Small Business Award, the custom framers at Gallery in the Vault apply an artist’s eye and an aesthetician’s touch to every project, spiffing up everything from reality-TV-star posters to their specialty, illuminated manuscripts. Employing local artists and visiting talent from around the world, Gallery in the Vault has earned a reputation for framing illuminated manuscripts from the Middle Ages, dating as far back as 1200 AD. Their artisans developed a unique technique to make both sides of the hand-calligraphied pages visible and capable of lively conversation. Print-owners with other framing needs can choose from an array of techniques, materials, and artist accents. Prices vary based on print sizes and customer preferences. For example, the Vault’s technicians can enhance an 11"x14" print of a ferret in a floppy hat with a 17"x20" gold frame ($150), gold fillet molding ($45), and a green cotton mat ($25). Along with the glass front ($22), fitting ($20), and other mounting materials ($10), the project would run about $272.

For three decades, the Ohio Light Opera (OLO) has produced premier opera culled from around the world. The OLO attracts 22,000 aria-aficionados annually, to the chagrin of staffers saddled with sweeping up shattered monocles. In recent years, the company has expanded its repertoire to include Broadway staples such as Camelot, Loewe and Lerner’s rumination on the more musical moments of King Arthur’s reign paired with the more dramatic patches of his relationship with the Lancelot-lusting Guinevere. Alternately, Gilbert and Sullivan’s comic opera The Pirates of Penzance illuminates the classic tale of a pirate-turned-police-officer’s quest to vanquish vandals of the high seas while winning the unbridled affection of the major-general’s daughter.

Members at Curves, a fitness center designed exclusively for women, rotate around a circuit of hydraulic resistance machines that have been designed to work with female bodies and promote weight loss, protect against osteoporosis, and deal with arthritis. An experienced trainer is always nearby to help manage participants’ machine maneuvering and muscle making. Instead of fiddling with weight stacks and losing momentum, the hydraulic machines use your own body weight, fitness level, and aerodynamic water bottle to create resistance that matches abilities, decreasing the risk of soreness or injury. Because traditional lift-and-lower motions create bulky muscles, each machine uses push-and-pull motions to create toned, lean muscles perfect for crushing a grapefruit without looking like you can. The Wooster Curves comes fully equipped with CurvesSmart technology, a computerized personal-training system that gives custom minute-by-minute exercise feedback and enlightens users with a postworkout progress report measuring strength gains and calories burned.

Acres of Fun rewards guests with a wide range of family-friendly activities. Grab a slice of pizza pie with one hand, secure a soda with the other, and use your spare to send a grapefruit-sized bowling ball rolling down Highway 66's 35-foot alleyways. Two games in the Laser Zone allow plenty of time for James Bond daydreams to merge with futuristic fantasies in the minds of kids or adults with deathless imaginations. The paired laser tag or mini-bowling sessions can be used separately or during a single two-person admission with your favorite fellow human. With two dozen tokens in hand, gamers can embark on an arcade spree and hop Frogger-like between 50 different video games and redemption games that reward players with tickets, which can then be exchanged for prizes or the instructions for a secret blizzard dance.

Splat Paintball provides a fun and exciting outdoor environment where brave paintslingers of all skill levels can practice their marksmanship, relieve the stresses of everyday life, and alleviate the guilt of midnight refrigerator raids. With your mask securely in place, your eyes will be safe from blindness and your secret superhero identity protected from inquisitive minds. Sneak stealthily through purple mountain majesties, amber waves of grain, and blue-bespeckled tree trunks as you attempt to capture the enemy’s flag. As you crawl on your belly over rocks and dash between bunkers with the whiz of small paint-filled capsules humming past your ears, open fire while tucking, rolling, and shouting in slow-motion until your enemies, best friends, or coworkers have all been decimated in a splatter of color. The game ends when a flag has been captured, despoiling opponents of the bragging rights guaranteed them by an early, paint-flecked draft of the U.S. Constitution.
