Overseen by classically trained chef Jenn DiSanto, Fresco's busy kitchen churns out fresh, made-from-scratch meals for people with little time to cook. Clients can view the weekly menu online before calling ahead to place their order or stopping into the storefront to mime their favorite foods. Dine on Mediterranean chicken, sautéed with shallots, olives, and white wine and served with orzo (a value of $15 for single servings or $50 for family size), or opt for the vegetarian pasta alla Norma (a value of $13 for single servings or $45 for family size). Locally produced ingredients are used when possible, and simple reheating instructions come with the meals, so no Kelvin-to-Fahrenheit conversions are necessary.
The staffers at Special Occasions Party Supply weave art out of air. Their balloon decorations spiral into multicolored columns, bend into archways, and form hanging hearts to garnish events ranging from birthday celebrations to bridal and baby showers. The family-owned business also outfits reception areas with tulle and matching tableware, sprucing up the setting to befit any celebration.
Decorating services are only one facet of their job, however. When they aren't prepping dance halls, they guide independent party planners through the shelves of their two supply stores. Batman- and Disney-princess-themed favors are on hand to charm children, Halloween costumes can conceal identities, and more than 38 solid colors of plates and napkins set attractive schemes. The bouquets of high-grade helium balloons are guaranteed to hover for at least five days. Patrons can also rent helium tanks with do-it-yourself balloon kits, which come with ribbons for each balloon and instructions for knitting sky-size safety nets.
With its winding creek, cascading waterfall, and lush vegetation, Indian Trails Miniature Golf would be a peaceful place to spend an afternoon even if it didn't have a single hole of mini-golf. But of course, it has twin 18-hole links that snake along hills and rocky inclines. While navigating the landscape, golfers can cool down in the shade of foliage or listen as birds peck the course's 19th hole into a tree. Off the greens, the clubhouse staff serves up ice cream and hosts birthday parties replete with pizza, popcorn, and custom birthday golf balls.
Act Out Talent Studio offers classes for all levels of entertainers to begin or continue their path towards a successful acting, modeling, or performing career. The studio employs a stable of coaches, each with experience working within their industry, that imparts students with an inside understanding of show business. Acting classes instill confidence and foster talent using emoting exercises covering such basics as observation, improvisation, and translating Shakespeare from the original Swedish. Aspiring models learn everything from expressing an image to nutrition in order to help build a marketable portfolio, and vocal classes allow singers and songwriters to step into an actual recording booth to practice chugging honey before crooning into the mic.

Like any great Italian meal, made-from-scratch dishes at Spaghetti Warehouse are created from family recipes passed down for generations. Using fresh ingredients ranging from ricotta, romano, and mozzarella cheeses to house-made tomato sauce and Italian sausage, chefs labor for up to three days to prepare batches of their 15-layer signature lasagna from scratch. The menu also offers perfectly al dente pasta, bottomless soups, and 12-layer chocolate cakes to share with family and friends.
It’s that feeling of togetherness that people love about Spaghetti Warehouse, a feeling that is only enhanced when the drinks start flowing and the air is punctuated by the sounds of laughter as kids play retro games, such as The Claw prize-grabbing machine. To reach their table, guests commonly have to step through two doors: the front door of the restaurant and the door of the antique trolley parked inside. Since its inception in 1972, the Italian eatery has merged the functions of kitchen and museum. Artifacts such as grandfather clocks, factory flywheels, and circus billboards surround diners as they delve into Italian creations.
