Williamsville, NY. The early 20th century. A man guides his family’s horse-drawn carriage through the flurries of snow sweeping across their circular driveway before coming to a halt in front of a striking two-story home. The ride was long and chilly, but inside, homey warmth awaits. Today, teleportation discs may have replaced the horse and buggy, but travelers still traverse the same driveway in search of a warm welcome. Now the home of Parings Wine Bar, the turn-of-the-century house reflects the goal that owner Shelia Paolini shared with the Amherst Bee’s Jessica Finch: “We want it to feel like you are coming into a living room, that you are at home, not at a bar.”
As soon as guests push open the bright-red front door, they enter a space that combines the comfort of a lived-in family room with the gourmet flavors found at traditional wine bars. Lit by flat-screen TVs and a cozy fireplace, guests peruse Chef Scott Martin’s ever-changing menu, which often features mediterranean nachos, lobster mac 'n' cheese, and horseradish beef tenderloin. Resident sommelier Alphonso DiMono’s wine list, which culls vintages from global wineries from Australia to France to California, perfectly complements the chef's creations. The bar’s mixologists also shake up more than 20 martinis infused with treats such has espresso vodka, Godiva white-chocolate liqueur, and pumpkin puree. As they sip and eat, guests can also join in special event nights that include art shows, live music, and happy hours that feature 20 types of wine for just $20 per bottle.
The certified personal trainers, licensed massage therapists, and physical therapists at Hive Lifespan Center all operate beneath an invisible umbrella of wellness. They continually widen their reach to cover the needs of those who enter the practice, uniting the spectrums of fitness, health, and nutrition services.
The gym floor buzzes with iPod-compatible cardio equipment and strength circuits, and specialty studios provide focused zones for spinning, Pilates, and yoga. The conditioning studio hosts the resistance workouts of TRX suspension training and the core-tightening moves of Ab-Lab. Interactive tracking programs such as exerspy and eFitnessSystem tools can chart factors such as calories burned and daily steps taken without hiring a private investigator to follow each foot. The health component of the center prevents and rehabilitates injuries with chiropractic, massage, and physical-therapy treatments.
Modern decor throughout the venue complements the contemporary idea of wellness integration. A 1960s-inspired concrete wall carved in a grid of flowering squares runs throughout the space, and as if to match its blooms, the towels stacked by the spa-like locker rooms emit scents of eucalyptus and lavender, much like a koala that has just gotten out of the shower.
Silver Essence Floating Spa's experts in buoyancy help visitors drift away from mental and bodily stresses with two soothing treatments–flotation-therapy and infrared-sauna sessions. During flotation-therapy visits, patrons enter enclosed sensory-deprivation spas to recline or doggy paddle in slow motion in 10 inches of 94-degree water, bolstered by 1,000 pounds of dissolved Epsom salt to facilitate even floating. Each session results in an experience unique to the individual, ranging from mind and body relaxation to daydreaming, and can help treat conditions related to back pain, arthritis, and injury. The units are equipped with inside lights, which may be turned off or left on so guests can crochet yarn swim caps while they soak. Though salt effectively cleanses water on its own, the spa staff also employs doses of ultraviolet light and ozone to ensure water is free of bacteria. A cartridge filter system aids in creating squeaky-clean environments, sifting out tub contents 24 hours a day.
In addition to the flotation therapy, Silver Essence Floating Spa also facilitates detoxification with its infrared sauna, which can burn up to 600 calories each session. The infrared heat energy can also help relieve pain associated with fibromyalgia, osteoarthritis, and rheumatoid arthritis.
The expansive menu of Kabab & Curry caters to a wide range of culinary preferences by presenting a variety of vegetarian dishes and allowing guests to customize the spiciness of their dishes by choosing mild, medium, spicy, or "I Promised Myself I Wouldn't Cry." The welcoming staff prides itself on cooking fine Indian and Pakistani dishes in addition to providing attentively affable customer care amid an environment that exudes a warmth to match the eatery?s cuisine. Since the crafting of curry incorporates myriad spices, the eatery boasts a curry unique to its establishment that can be prepared with meat or vegetarian ingredients. Traditional tandoori dishes as well as chicken, lamb, beef, and seafood entrees fill out the bulk of the menu, and a selection of lentil cr?pes, naan, and savory soups longs for the chance to win Best Supporting Actor or Dish. The restaurant also performs catering services, a more responsible way to deliver its cuisine than putting the building on a flatbed truck every time it gets an order.
Arthur Murray has been a leading name in franchise dance since 1912, when the entrepreneur began selling mail-order dance lessons. Expanding his reach, he enlisted teachers to spread his signature dance lessons on first-class steamships and skyrocketed to fame in the '30s after introducing the public to such dances as the Lambeth Walk and The Big Apple. By the 1950s, Arthur and his wife, Kathryn, were hosting their own highly popular TV show on ABC, The Arthur Murray Dance Party, which ran for 12 years. Today, Arthur Murray's team prepares students for rug cutting at special events and weekend nightclub jaunts. Clients who arrive to lessons partnerless will be paired up with other classmates as the instructors assess their current skill level and make recommendations on the most appropriate program. Throughout lessons, instructors teach the foundations of two to four dances from a long list of styles that range from Latin to country-western, helping students to learn basic step patterns, timing, and the ability to lead or follow.
