Most miniature golf courses have greens that are actually green, but not Ironbridge Sports Park—the Park's 18-hole course trades the faux-grass for pastel purple, yellow, red, and blue, adding some color to the already whimsical game. The course's vibrant personality extends throughout the park, where guests crack baseballs and softballs in batting cages, dodge phosphorescent bullets in the outdoor laser tag field, and practice parallel parking in go-karts. A two-tiered driving range hosts swing practice across 60 hitting stations, which are covered and heated for year-round use.

More than three decades ago, educator Larry Martinek set out on a mission to develop a curriculum that would radically change the traditional approach to teaching math. Noting a "disconnect between students' basic skills training and the curriculum they [must] master in the years to come," Larry created an original teaching method designed to turn students into miniature mathematicians capable of thinking critically to solve problems. His approach, which he describes as the cultivation of number sense, strives to sharpen students? math instincts, rather than drill them with repetitive, memory-based exercises or force them to blackmail accountants to crunch the numbers. Soon after students began using Larry's method, their test scores began to rise. In the spring of 2002, Larry's dream came true. Peter Markovitz and David Ullendorff, leaders in the education industry, made Larry and his curriculum the driving force of Mathnasium. Larry introduced his curriculum as the Mathnasium Method.
Today, Mathnasium centers can be found throughout the world. Informed by Larry's visionary innovations, the program's tutors give personalized coaching that focuses on bolstering critical thinking through written materials and mental math, forsaking many of the teaching tools found in a traditional classroom. In addition, the tutors also focus on boosting students' enthusiasm for the subject, helping them overcome a lack of confidence in the classroom or their innate fear of prime numbers.

Backed by an armory of natural shampoos & soaps, the groomers at Shampooches Salon & Spaw untangle and trim coats, leaving pups to strut out in a well-groomed parade with tongues lolling happily. Flea and tick treatments keep pests at bay, and trimming around the ears leaves pooches ready to listen for the sounds of other dogs barking or coaches discovering loopholes that allow canines in the league.
