The gleam of painted flames, roar of engines, and glow of underbody neon lights are among the sights and sounds that greet attendees at the Import Evolution Car Show. A fleet of more than 200 autos includes domestic and foreign makes, classics, and cars customized with rims and modified sound systems rather than cross-stitched license plates. Between 5,000 and 10,000 spectators wander among the candy-colored machines representing more than 75 of the industry’s top brands and through vendor exhibits displaying apparel and collectibles. Live entertainment adds to the festive atmosphere as guests learn about automotive culture. At the climax of the show, awards honor the most impressive make-specific and VIP class vehicles, motorcycles, and autos grouped into specialty categories such as Class Clown and Best Muscle Car.
Located inside Randolph High School, Randolph Community Pool is an aquatic haven that hosts lap swimmers, swim meets, and classes for children and adults. Water-aerobics classes burn calories while removing the intense joint impacts that can make regular cardiovascular exercise uncomfortable. The pool's lifeguards man its white, wooden guard towers, watching over swimmers below and keeping an eye out for invading British redcoats.
Papa John's has been popping out perfectly personalized pies 'round the clock for more than 25 years, arranging a lineup of specialty pizzas and sides on a munificent menu. Patrons can bedeck dough disks with carnivorous confetti in the form of pepperoni, ham, spicy italian sausage, bacon, sausage, beef, or grilled chicken. Golden-voiced fresh vegetables make palates swoon with a jukebox's selection of green peppers, portobello mushrooms, roma tomatoes, jalapeño peppers, onions, black olives, pineapple, banana peppers, and newly harvested 45s. Eaters can prod cooks with the click of a mouse, alerting them to special requests such as an extra layer of parmesan romano or the three-cheese blend of the asiago, fontina, and provolone. Like a popular club or an especially bangin’ fireplace store, Papa John's stays open late, making it an opportune place to stock up for impromptu pajama jams and uncontrollable sleep-feasting.
