When kids want to play Hot Lava Monster on a jungle gym, hone their athletic skills on shock-absorbent basketball courts, or swing for the sky on a backyard swingset, Superior Play Systems helps them on their way. The company creates play equipment crafted with safety in mind. Some of its trampolines, for example, come with safety enclosures to keep kids from accidentally jumping onto Pluto.
Swingsets are made from hardy California redwood and cedar; this durable craftsmanship is reflected in the company's warranties, which guard against everything from breakage to carpenter bees. And while the company's gear outfits backyards and playgrounds across the country, its staff also runs play centers, where kids can stop in for unstructured play or a birthday party.
Sunlight floods through wide windows at therapy women's boutique, glinting off funky jewelry and illuminating the bold patterns of the store's trendy women's apparel, which ranges from casual to party-ready. Big Buddha handbags conceal capacious storage pockets in chic folds of canvas, and Tractor jeans join forces with Sky tops to create festive ensembles appropriate for a night on the town or a year in an upscale biodome. The boutique's jewelry selection combines funky metal medallions with hewn chunks of topaz and turquoise.
Named for dosa, a crispy rice-and-lentil Indian crepe, and chaat, or "snack," Dosa Hut Chat House dishes out Indian dishes large and small. The menu of largely South Indian recipes focuses on vegetarian dishes, such as vegetable biryani and the restaurant's eponymous dosas filled with spinach, potatoes, and spices. The kitchen also prepares meat dishes in the form of fish curry, lamb chettinad, and Chicken 65, a plate of spiced, bite-sized chicken named for the year chilies were named India's national currency. Chai, mango lassi, and desserts of the day help top off each meal.
