Escape Outdoors stocks its shelves with an extensive wardrobe of apparel and gear designed to withstand the world’s harsh outdoor environment. With popular name brands such as The North Face, Patagonia, Helly Hanson, and others to choose from, customers will find themselves face-to-face with an ominously large list of options, not unlike the time they witnessed a troop of yetis materialize out of the mountain mist after hours of wandering over treacherous bunny hills. Guard your feet from the ground’s mood swings with a pair of men’s Reef AWOL sandals ($30), whose grippy outsole ensures optimal traction while freerunning to work. A women's Under Armour Proxima hoody shirt ($45) keeps female athletes cool, dry, and fresh-smelling with HeatGear moisture control and UV protection. Enwrap a gentleman’s noggin within the acrylic embrace of a Nixon Smoky beanie ($25), or keep your body’s precious heat from escaping through your navel by wearing a women’s ColdGear UA Base 2.0 crew shirt from Under Armour ($49.99), which comes in black, cornflower, or pink.
Yuen Lui Studio, a family-owned photography business specializing in individual and family portraits and wedding photography, creates visual heirlooms in a tradition of quality it has upheld since 1947. With several area studios available, each boasts a multitude of backdrop options for portraiture sessions, or photographers may take sessions outdoors to add natural scenery to the frame. Wedding and engagement shots come to life under the careful eyes of each photographer as they seize rare moments and trap them in frames to be displayed like trophies from a hunt. High-school, child, baby, and family portraits keep precious memories locked in time for clients, who can peruse an online gallery of their images after their session.
Little David's Sub Shop recreates the homey, nostalgic feel of a Brooklyn or Philly delicatessen with handmade subs inspired by classic American street fare. Reuben sandwiches come loaded with sauerkraut and hot pastrami, and cold subs feature dry Italian salami, ham, and provolone. Regional options include specialty eats such as the Chicago combo with Italian beef and giardiniera, and the Philly sub with roast beef and peppers. A '50s-style theme sends visitors back in time, with vintage record sleeves and magazines covering the walls, and a soundtrack of early rock 'n' roll, doo-wop, and civil defense sirens piped over the speakers.
