When it comes to making memories, nothing captures your guests' true personalities quite like a My Picture Lounge photo booth. At parties and special events, up to 10 people pile in, and suddenly tongues are sticking out, faces are crunching up, and eye are going googly. Wacky props such as masquerade-style masks and cowboy hats only encourage the mirth-making, and ensure a barrage of candid, one-of-a-kind shots. But despite all the kookiness, the My Picture Lounge booths deliver completely professional images. Backgrounds with sparkles and wallpaper patterns assist in that area, as do the studio-quality lights and onsite attendant.
While the photo booths are a fun way to create memories, the photos themselves make great keepsakes, and add-ons such as scrapbooks and photo strip frames can dress up the images and preserve the memories for years to come. And, My Picture Lounge can even customize a DVD montage of all the event's images, set to music or a recording of your favorite bird calls.
After a year of experimenting with different sizes and approaches, JasonC Photobooth crafted the ideal handmade photo station to snap pictures of 10 or more people at a time. They bring their custom booths to events of all types, manned by an operator who ensures that photos are printing smoothly and that no one mistakes the booth for the secret entrance where they pop out of the cake. Photos print within 30 seconds, and are coated in gloss and cut into 2"x6" strips. Party hosts can upgrade their photo-booth experiences with add-ons such as a box of props and a scrapbook of all the evening's photos.
The cozy ambiance of Vitale's Italian Bistro sets the scene for the comforting regional dishes made from scratch. Spicy marinara and creamy alfredo sauces simmer in pots while chefs tuck cheese into ravioli pockets and roll out gnocchi dumplings. Chicken and veal dishes arrive in six different varieties, including saut?ed in a sweet marsala wine sauce or breaded, fried, and topped with a layer of melted cheese. Upgrading the classic grilled pork chop, chefs instead stuff the chops with spinach, roasted peppers, and provolone cheese, then cover them in a marsala demi-glaze and roast them in the oven.
Hard-rock juggernauts Five Finger Death Punch give audiences four for flinching on their Share The Welt tour, a high-octane evening of nail-driving metal and chugging aural concrete. Since bursting onto the scene in 2007 with its gold-selling debut, The Way of the Fist, Five Finger Death Punch has scaled the charts and the musical food chain, gulping its competition like a possessed Takeru Kobayashi. For the tour in support of its latest effort, American Capitalist, the gang enlists an entire posse of heavy hitters. Massachusetts metal mavens All That Remains, fresh from melting soles on the Vans Warped Tour, bludgeon audiences with an arsenal of hits, and hardcore shredders Hatebreed share unkind words as they haze the speed of sound. Adding power-chord crunch to the show, Fort Wayne’s Rains sprinkles audiences with raw and emotional sonic sleet.
