As its name implies, MovieTime outfits its clients with countless classic films and new releases, though its technicians also fine-tune computers, consoles, and media devices of all types and models. Shoppers entertain themselves with Hindi and Punjabi comedies, romances, dramas, and thrillers, or convert dusty VHS tapes and 35mm slideshows into easy-to-access DVDs with customized menus and music sequences. Electronics whizzes clean viruses from infected systems, hook computers into networks, and recover lost data from damaged servers, tapes, or hard drives. Gaming experts render nearly any modern-generation console as good as new—bringing motion sensing capabilities back to the Wii through laser-lens replacements, or removing an Xbox's Red Ring of Death through a careful curse-lifting procedure.
Before the notion of upscale pub fare existed in Sudbury, Ontario, Casey's restaurant was busy inventing it. Since firing up its first kitchen in 1980, Casey's has grown to include more than 160 restaurants that operate under five brand names, including as Casey's Grill Bar. Inside its welcoming walls, culinary craftspeople put an upscale twist on traditional pub dishes from burgers to sirloin steaks. They crown their fresh half-pound ground beef burgers with sautéed mushrooms, Alexis de Portneuf brie cheese, and arugula before tucking them into an Ace Bakery bun. In addition to their poutine with Quebec cheese curds and gravy, the chefs also toss heart healthy salads and pan sear mahi mahi accented with sweet hints of mango salsa.
