It's holiday time, which means you're getting more than your fill of turkey, pie, and family time—the perfect opportunity to start drafting New Year's resolutions that don't involve extra stuffing or Great Aunt Marge. If your tentative list includes getting in shape, meeting people, floating like a butterfly, and stinging like a bee, then you'll want to be on the fight card for this Adventure: an hour-long boxing bootcamp, followed by a catered lunch and a live sparring session.
We'll start by gathering at the Baltimore Boxing Club, where our tough-as-nails team will be waiting to help lace up our gloves for an hour-long boxing lesson. As we rotate through various stations and complete a series of drills and exercises, we'll receive hands-on instruction from the club's experienced professional trainers. And, with our souvenir towel and sweatband—as well as $10 off the price, all courtesy of the reinvented Toyota Camry—we'll get the full effect of being a real boxer (at least in regards to the swag).
After we've had our fill of jabs, hooks, and uppercuts, the bell will sound for round two: a lunch of assorted sliders (hamburger, Buffalo chicken, and Italian cold cut) and pasta salad catered by Palmere's of Little Italy. As we snack on our concessions and prattle about our pugilistic proficiency, we'll have ringside seats for a live sparring demonstration featuring some of Baltimore's own boxing pros. Once the match is over, we'll have the option to continue the fun at Palmere's—located a few blocks from the club—where we'll have exclusive drink specials. Just because it's the holiday season doesn't mean that we have to become heavyweights—get acquainted with Charm City, and take a few early rounds from 2012 while you're at it.
