It's a charity race with a back story like none other:
bloodthirsty demons have been working in your community's offices, living in its homes, attending its schools. And now they're on the hunt and people are
running for their lives. Citizens might be booking it across a field, seemingly far from the chaos, when shapes emerge on the horizon dressed head-to-toe in vampires' telltale black clothes. If you're a citizen, be prepared to run. If you're a vampire—lock in your target.
That's just part of what you might experience on the Vampire 5K, a twilight fun run where participants can register as
"citizens" or "vampires" and take off from two separate starting lines. Both camps eventually converge in a chase that finds vamps trying to convert their mortal counterparts to the dark side. Citizens, dressed in white, sport two garlic flags; if the flags are taken before runners cross their finish line, they switch to a black tee and
citizens. After the race, a moonlit party finds both camps sipping bloody marys during a dance party and award presentation. The race benefits the Mission to Hear Foundation, which provides hearing aids to underprivileged children, adults, and whatever they're calling the age group that comes in between these days.
Established as the Washington Shakespeare Company in 1990, WSC Avant Bard is dedicated to updating classic theater for modern audiences, revitalizing well-worn drama with challenging interpretations. Under the leadership of newly appointed artistic director Tom Prewitt, the theater treats audiences to daring productions of established classics, new works, and little-known Shakespeare fan-fiction about him teaming up to fight crime with Queen Elizabeth I.
Parking Panda describes itself as "a community marketplace for parking," one that benefits both those seeking spots and those with spots to fill. Commuters in more than 40 major cities can either go online or use the mobile app to search an area and time of arrival, which will turn up a map with pinpoints of available spots. You can reserve and pay for the spot electronically, and even view a picture of the space you've selected to be sure it is in fact on planet Earth. Many locations are automated, allowing you to enter and exit the garage directly from your smartphone, just look for the "PandaScan" locations.
Garage and lot owners can list their space online, specifying the rate and time of availability. Operators will be paid instantly upon reservation, ensuring they won't have to track down parkers by the scent of their tire tracks.
Though they keep an eye on more than one million parking spots around the country, the staff of Central Parking System is trained to do more than just oversee parking facilities; they also execute shuttle services, provide valet and special-event parking, and consult on parking-facility design. They manage parking and vehicular operations in 60 cities around the country in venues ranging from residential and office buildings to airports, hospitals, hotels, and stadiums.
In addition to maintaining streamlined parking environments, Central Parking System also devises creative solutions to modern planning dilemmas, such as whether or not to give discounts to clowns carpooling in a compact sedan. The company donates part of its profits to a range of local and national charities, such as The United Way and The American Diabetes Association.
