Andrea Bucheli has been legally shooting people for years, with particular experience in event photography. Your package consists of a one-hour photo shoot with up to five others at the location of your choice, with as many poses as your poseur mind can postulate (a $75 value). If you're uncertain of which of your sides is most flattering, either ask each side if you look like you've been working out, or ask the photographer for her expert input.

Glowing streams of red and green lasers skewer clouds of smoke, scattering as players charge through with Laserforce Gen6 equipment. The 6,000-square-foot arena swells with high-energy music, which sets a steady pace for up to seven teams as they swarm two levels, seeking enemies to blast against the black-lit backdrops. Digital babble drifts from more than 25 games in the arcade, from the sounds of explosive combat in shooting games to the screams of traffic cones in racing simulators such as Super Bikes 2 and Dirty Driving. All-night laser-tag sessions immerse combatants during monthly lock-ins, which let them form teams to practice different defensive strategies, such as guarding the best shooter with a human pyramid.

Taken out of their comfort zones, pets can become anxious and stressed, especially when it comes to grooming. That’s why the staffers at Dog & Cats Mobile Pet Grooming bring their shears, clippers, and cleaners directly to their clients’ homes, letting dogs and cats feel safe and relaxed during their grooming sessions. They accommodate furry companions of all breeds and sizes, bathing them before clipping their nails, cleaning their ears, and trimming their fur into breed-appropriate styles. They then clean pets’ ears, express their glands, and even brush their teeth, ensuring that their breath is fresher than the morning dew on a mountaintop free of wet dogs.

Once upon a time, Swanson's Cleaners technicians would begin their days by firing up irons, stirring starches, and strapping on roller skates. The business was once one of the largest dry-cleaning facilities west of the Mississippi, the epicenter of Salvin Swanson's vast dry-cleaning empire—an empire packed with Sacramento's laundry, even the chain mail of its knights. To get the job of all this weighty laundry done, staffers needed their own wheels, plus wheels for their hampers.

Now helmed by the third generation of Swansons, the business has grown to 15 locations. In these locations, the team launders and dry-cleans garments with the eco-friendly Revive system, which uses a gentle, odorless, and antibacterial solution made from organic ingredients. Ever mindful of the earth and the community, Swanson's Cleaners recycles its hangers and plastic bags and has collected more than 27,000 coats for local children in need through its Coats for Kids program.
