Something New Florist specializes in floral arrangements, decorative housewares, and wedding registries. For almost 20 years, the prettifying purveyors have been bringing fresh new colors to homes and special events with colorful compositions, such as the simple-pleasures basket, a multichromatic creation blooming out of a whitewashed wicker basket ($39.99), and the cube with yellow blooms, an arrangement of bright-yellow alstroemeria, carnations, and chrysanthemums in a square glass vase ($36.50).
The Flaming Ice Cube might as well be a good vibes factory. Part cafe, gift shop, and yarn shop, visitors can stop in for a veggie burger, knitting lesson, or soy candle. At the cafe, chefs craft homemade vegan plates from a menu that includes a BBQ chick'n sandwich and brown rice bowls layered with asian vegetables, marinated organic tempeh, and the cafe's signature plum sauce. Meanwhile, instructors get needles moving at knitting classes, during which participants learn knitting basics or more advanced techniques for creating hats, scarves, and impractical bikinis.
From first sip to final swallow, Abruzzo's bottles all things vino and malted barley and hops into one convenient location, including bottling supplies and at-home wine- and beer-making equipment. Guzzlers can build a twisting tapestry of bitter tastes with the Brewer’s Best equipment kit (a $67.38 value), which includes every tool necessary for concocting barley imbibables––including a home beer-making book and a 6.5-gallon fermenter, perfect for filling party goblets and 6.5-gallon stomachs. Each kit also includes a beer ingredient pack in one of seven flavors (starting at $29.70), including Brewer’s Best American cream ale, American light, English brown ale, English bitter, Scottish ale, Irish red ale, or Bavarian kölsch.
Phantom Fireworks first burst onto the scene more than three decades ago. Today, the company lights up backyards of America from coast-to-coast with more than 1,200 permanent and temporary locations.
Much like its products, Phantom?s employees frequently take to the skies. They travel around the globe in search of the industry's latest ground and aerial displays before returning home with rockets, missiles, fountains, and aerial repeaters. From there, an extensive in-house testing program takes over, checking each item's safety before it?s sold to the public.
That testing program is just one of Phantom?s pillars of safety. The company also holds memberships with multiple pyrotechnics organizations, and it offers customers additional information about fireworks laws and history through its Fireworks University.
In addition to selling, renting, and servicing an orchestral array of new and preplayed instruments at their showroom, Pellegrino Music Center’s tunesmiths tutor musical apprentices with instrumental instruction taught through the Pellegrino Fine Arts Academy. During 30-minute lessons at the center’s adjacent teaching facility, instructors skilled in instrumental varieties from voice to strings and horns to percussion walk students through one-on-one tutorials, preempting the risk of cluttered classrooms or dueling banjos. First-time students learn music-making basics like where to strum, when to change keys, and how to tell if a saxophone is about to molt, and strings relax and horns exhale under the deft control of experienced pupils in intermediate and advanced lessons tailored to their training level.
