Since its founding by owner Bill Clark in 1962, Drive-In Autosound has expanded from an OEM radio-repair center to an automotive-enhancement hub with five locations. The audio department still doles out sonic toys such as stereos and speakers, as well as high-tech modifications including auxiliary ports, MP3-compatible sound systems, and plug-in a capella singers. The MECP-certified installers also equip cars with remote starters and GPS systems from more than 50 brands—including Kenwood and Pioneer—and factory-trained technicians augment rides with window tints and stylish wheels.

The enthusiastic coaches at Soccer Buddies educate youngsters on the value of physical fitness and impart much-needed confidence through drills and practices that refine fundamental skills. Lessons aim to build on the foundations of balance, agility, and coordination for budding athletes as young as 10 months old. As kids get older and their skills begin to mature, they’ll also have the chance to advance through age- and skill-appropriate classes, which increase the chance that students will be fully prepared for advanced moves such as bicycle kicks and the act of kissing a World Cup trophy. Youngsters will find new physical, cognitive, and emotional challenges at every leg of the training track, and those who excel will be eligible for an invitation to the Soccer Buddies Select class, a higher-level learning environment for competitive-minded players younger than 12.
For 34 years, Dick Kelly and his team of friendly sofa herders have collected fine specimens of used furnishings of all stripes and styles. The spacious showroom lays out an impressive spread of household accessories ideal for every room, such as a serpentine front sofa table ($165), or a Belmar sofa ($375), cushioning popcorn-chomping movie buffs and competitive couch-surfers alike. In addition to peddling cushiony recliners and sofas, Platte Furniture swaddles sleepers in a full set of colorful Egyptian-cotton bed sheets ($40–$50), decking out mattresses with flat sheets, fitted sheets, and two pillowcases. Like the sheets that graced King Tutankhamun's racecar bed, the more than 1,000 thread-count textiles soothe snoozers with the silky texture of a high-strength microfiber.
