Pick up a Steel Grip six-piece screwdriver set ($8.49), a VPT rip hammer ($6.29), and a whole bunch of screws, anchors, and bolts (prices vary), and you'll be ready to finally mount every buffalo nickel and steel penny in your coin collection. Illuminate the newfound décor with a 12-pack of three-way Ace light bulbs ($21.48), the better to see by as you make use of a Purdy four-piece premium paint-tray kit ($19.99). If you need to match paint to a favorite coverlet or choose a hue that complements a pleather recliner, most stores offer a paint-matching service free of charge. Get keys made, or clean a barnacle-encrusted carpet with the help of a rented carpet-cleaning machine (inquire about pricing at your preferred location).
At Nori Sushi Bar and Grill, chefs fuse traditional methods with new-wave techniques to transform fresh seafood into more than 20 specialty rolls. These include rolls stuffed with shrimp tempura and Red Dagon with spicy tuna, cucumber avacado, topped with cajun tuna and habanero masago that looks just as good on a plate as it would beneath a Christmas tree. But Nori’s selection stretches beyond sushi to full entrees, such as the teriyaki steak topped with a house teriyaki sauce. Diners enjoy the dishes inside the restaurant, which is adorned with bamboo plants and cat statues, or outside on the patio, next to the sand-colored exterior and underneath crimson umbrellas.
For nearly fifty years, the wait staff at The Pancake House Restaurant has been dropping by tables to plop down hearty plates of American diner food and refill guests' mugs with hot pours of coffee. The diner has filled up patrons with mouth-watering, hunger-slaughtering breakfast classics such as omelets filled with bacon and cheddar, french toast, and a family-style, all-you-can-eat platter of endless country potatoes, scrambled eggs, bacon, sausage, and buttermilk pancakes. The restaurant stays open past breakfast to ride out its own coffee buzz and serve up lunch and dinner options such as deli sandwiches, fish ‘n’ chips, and pork chops.
Traditional carpets hang across the ceilings above diners at Ali Baba Family Restaurant. Seated beneath them, guests dig into plates heaping with kebabs, shawarma, and hummus paired with freshly baked bread. Specialty pizzas are also available, along with vegetarian options for those who prefer to pizzas that aren't carved whole out of a large chunk of meat.
Spinners operates at a fast-food pace, while still maintaining an emphasis on freshly sliced, ripe-as-rain ingredients. The salad-slathered menu shines with homemade, authentic Mediterranean dishes designed to please palates and banish hunger under a meaty and green-laden grave.

Meanwhile, group fitness-classes practice cardio dance, yoga, and aerobics.
