Shannon Walters opened Dog'on Salon to give dogs a safe and fun home away from home. To make that possible, she assembled a staff trained in the ways of canines to run her indoor-outdoor facility. This experienced group evaluates pups based on energy levels, age, and size before dividing them up into appropriate play groups. When they aren't tending to pets, the team cares for shelter dogs looking for a place to hang their hats, even on the rare occasion they're not wearing one. In addition to daycare and pet boarding, Shannon's team also grooms dogs, finishing each session with a bow or a bandana.
In more than 20 years of working with wood and furniture, Greg Wright’s deft hands have refinished antique tables, rejuvenated Steinway grand pianos, and even tackled jobs for the Lucas Oil Stadium suites. The expert craftsman brings faded, stained, and scratched surfaces back to life, whether the wood belongs to a chair or the floorboards of a posh sandcastle. In addition to repairing and rejuvenating surfaces made of oak or mahogany, Wright reupholsters tired couches and frayed armchairs. When tackling a project in-shop isn’t convenient, he drops by homes to handle problems in person.
Olan Mills Inc. provides families with high-quality portraits, continuing a mission that was established more than 75 years ago by founder Olan Mills Sr. Skilled in the art of capturing infants, children, families, and bunny-ears-giving ghost orbs on film, Olan Mills’s experienced smile snappers will take a series of poses amid a variety of backgrounds and lighting options. The studio is equipped with a selection of props—including numbers for birthdays, toys, and boxes—and patrons may bring their own photo-enlivening items from home. The resulting photos find their way to prints in natural color, black and white, or sepia tones; they can also be immortalized in the studio's signature Old Masters style, a canvas brushed with highlights to re-create the look of an oil painting. Like the gentlemanly mariners of ages past with their full schedule of sea battles, the photographers welcome appointments, but do not require them.

Long tables and dark-wooden paneling help create a cozy ambience in Edelweiss Restaurant’s beer-hall-style dining room, which allows German-American Klub members and visitors alike to revel in Bavarian culture and community. The chefs embrace tradition by grilling bratwurst, knackwurst, and kielbasa over an open flame, hand-cutting servings of pork schnitzel, and marinating the sauerbraten’s beef for three days before slow-roasting it over a volcano. The bartenders serve German-American Klub members beers from the ever-rotating selection, which includes imported German brews by Warsteiner and Spaten, among others. Amid the buzz of spirited conversations, live entertainment, including a harpist on Friday evenings, amuses guests.
