Birds in flight, colorful turtles, and snakes coiled around apples can all be found inside this all-female studio, Body Graphics. They are tattooed onto the bodies of clients, along with intricate flower designs, crosses, and butterflies. The talented staff also applies permanent makeup—including eyeliner for people that like to keep up appearances while singing in the shower—and pierces ears and navels. Not-so-permanent services include trendy haircuts and eye-catching manicures.
At Eat More Cheese, cheese reigns king over a diverse selection of specialty foods, including salami, dried fruits, jams, and chocolates. The shop corrals its cheese from across the U.S. and abroad, taking pride in a process that ensures each of its products is properly cared for and in peak condition upon hitting the shelves. Inside the shop, the Eat More Cheese staff fosters a welcoming environment, and encourages customers to sample as much cheese or ask as many questions as they please before making a purchase.
Before they discover the wealth of games hidden just past the front entrance, visitors to The Sports Arena are met with an outdoor challenge on the undulating greens of its 18-hole outdoor miniature golf course. After putting their way to recreational immortality, visitors can check out indoor activities; pool sharks roam freely among the billiard hall's tables, and the arcade’s vintage and modern games frequently spit forth tickets redeemable for prizes. Good times continue to roll at the bowling alley, which hosts casual and competitive frames, private games in the VIP lounge, and Moonlight Bowling sessions until 1 a.m. every Friday and Saturday. Visitors in need of a recharge can grab a bite at Pat's Pizza's onsite eatery.
Hope General Store's historic building's roots stretch back as early as 1832, and its rustic interior greets guests with imported goods, up to 140 varieties of beer, and a menu of sandwiches, salads, and pizzas. Graze on gourmet bites such as the Pinchy shaved-steak sandwich, a toasted sub stuffed with mushrooms, peppers, and swiss ($6.25) and the blue spinach salad, which hosts an army of creamy blue cheese and avocado as well as apples and mushrooms ($4.25). Adorn a customizable pizza ($4.50+) with an array of toppings, or opt for a predressed pie such as the France pizza, which delights diverse appetites with a quarter border of pineapple and ham, a quarter pepperoni, a quarter veggie, and a quarter cheese, united with a fried-egg centerpiece ($10 for a small 12” pizza; $15 for a large 16” pizza). Hope General Store's cozy interior is peppered with modern touches such as solar panels and WiFi, although the certified post office within the store allows guests to easily send a care package via mail instead of shoving it through a computer screen.
