Lavell's BBQ and Catering doesn't just make barbecue, it prepares "food with soul." This soul food restaurant serves all the classic comfort dishes including ribs, chicken, and fish plates. Pair a slab of turkey ribs or a chunk of fried perch with a variety of filling sides including candied yams, collard greens, and black-eyed peas. If you can't pick just one side, you can supplement your meal with a pair of Soul Rolls, which are collards, barbecue baked beans, and mac and cheese all cuddled up together in an egg roll, making each nibble a mini tour of the menu. For a quicker bite, grab a pulled pork or shrimp po' boy sandwich, both of which can fit neatly in a pocket if your pocket is large and lined with foil.
Not every couple's first dance should have to be to "At Last." And it needn't be when Firehouse DJ Co. occupies the DJ booth. Its DJs bring a selection of more than 50,000 tunes to all wedding receptions, plus another 20,000 for postnuptials karaoke. When it isn't helping the recently wed raise the roof, Firehouse specializes in entertainment for bars, such as trivia nights, karaoke, and DJ sets. It also facilitates live-music bookings, helping great bands find great venues and vice versa.
The experienced and familial off-site caterers of All Ours Catering fête sweet-tooth owners and event celebrators with a plethora of customized treats freshly baked on the day they are ordered. Reserve your crafted confection that feeds 20–25 people for a variety of occasions, from birthdays to holidays and kitten-to-cat graduation parties. Like bird-egg egos, cakes are fragile and require special handling and care, so professional dessert wranglers take caution when arranging them on banquet-room cake stands or hovercraft dining-room coffee tables. Cakes can be customized by flavor, color, design, and any other personal preferences.
Just Us Pretty Things is a haven for all things sparkly and the people—especially little girls—who love them. Glass beads, rhinestones, Swarovski crystals, dainty hearts, and an array of findings wait to be turned into dazzling necklaces and bracelets. Though exuberant kids’ parties often hold court in the rose-hued shop, adults are welcome to unwind after a long week of working at the jewelry factory by booking a BYOB girls’ night out party or dropping in for a class.
At all of Monkey Joe’s colorfully decorated locations, youngsters aged 2–12 can literally bounce off the walls in a well-lit indoor playground that abides by a Safety Access Child Control System. Exercise disguises itself as fun as sock-clad kids rocket down slides, scale climbable obstacles, and jump across springy surfaces surrounded by safety mats. Toddlers aged 3 or younger tucker themselves out in their own play area with smaller obstacles, thoroughly sanitized inflatable surfaces, toys, and games. Parties, which can include pizza and ice cream, reach a fever pitch with visits from Monkey Joe himself. While kids vent all their excess energy on the playground, parents can watch flat-screen televisions, drink refreshments, and use the WiFi to surf the Internet in the adult area.
