The chefs at Arzi’s Express Greek and Lebanese Cafe infuse fresh vegetables and cuts of meat with the bold flavors of the Mediterranean. Split a vegetarian helping of stuffed grape leaves, bursting with aromatic spices and perfectly cooked rice, or celebrate Hellenic innovation with warm pita and a vat of Grecian cucumber-and-garlic dip served inside a Trojan horse. Entrees include platefuls of succulent meats, such as the house-specialty sampler, a blissful marriage between chicken shawarma and gyros paired with feta salad and hummus, or a broiled lamb shank topped with a dollop of mint jelly. Comestible comrades can untangle chicken, shrimp, or gyros from creamy pasta dishes, as miniature diners salivate over the pintsize pitas gracing the kids' menu, or review their off-shore investments over a cup of turkish coffee.

Shutterbug Michael Spangler, owner of Expressions Photography of Central, has been snapping photos professionally since 1986. His skills earned him stints as president of the Louisiana Professional Photographers Association and the Capital City Professional Photographers Guild. Today, he crafts portraits and senior photos both inside his studio and amid natural surroundings. His sophisticated, black-and-white portraits occasionally include pops of color to highlight a red car, a pink tutu, or a bad case of the blues. In his color photos, Michael runs the gamut between heavy saturation and subdued, desaturated hues to highlight his subject's dynamic poses.
While chronicling weddings, he draws on 26 years of experience as he alternates between traditional poses and candid shots. Michael also transforms sports photos into memorabilia such as custom composites, trading cards, and magnets. When he isn't capturing still images, he professionally records concerts and recitals on video.
