The artistic staff of Millers Artist Supplies stocks shelves with an arsenal of art and framing supplies. Patrons can peruse a full line of Strathmore Windpower drawing pads ($2.97+) in a variety of paper compositions and sizes, or entertain bank tellers by writing checks with a 12-piece Prismacolor marker set ($25.79) or Permalba oil paint ($3.29+). Visitors can select from 3,000 types of mouldings and five types of glass to create a customized frame, which an on-site technician will assemble (additional charge may apply). Patrons can also learn to frame photographs, paintings, or parking-ticket collages with instructional books and videos such as a How to Cut Mats video ($7.96) or a home mat-cutting kit ($46.46).
At the family-owned-and-operated Good Eats and More, pizzas and traditional Italian specialties rise within ovens. Chefs blanket garlic parmesan or butter-sesame-flavored crusts with toppings of spicy capicola, sausage, or pineapple, while layering subs and paninis with hearty meats and melted cheeses. A selection of takeaway lasagnas and mostaccioli dinners can serve up to 10 people. The restaurant's on-site gift shop peddles colorful gifts, fine home accessories, and jewelry—the least tasty but most valuable pizza topping.
Marvin Yagoda, the owner of Marvin's Marvelous Mechanical Museum, has amassed mechanical oddities and coin-operated machines since 1960 and regularly updates his collection of curiosities with new additions. A champion of all things outlandish, Marvin ensures that no nook or cranny in the 5,000-square-foot space remains unembellished with treasures such as P.T. Barnum's famous Cardiff Giant, as featured in RoadsideAmerica.com, or the AutoWed, America's first and only coin-operated wedding-ring dispenser for on-the-fly unions, replete with wedding music and an AutoDivorce voucher. Rafters atop 40-foot ceilings anchor low-flying model planes, and walls cloak themselves in vintage photos and pictures. Modern machines mingle with antique contraptions, whose old-timey noises and quaint images whisk visitors away to days of yore as effectively as a coal-powered wormhole.
A concession stand ensures that players remain sated and hydrated, and a prize shop enables guests to trade in their hard-earned game tickets for rewards such as figurines, toys, and yacht cruises with the Pac-Man family. To share its quarter-munching contraptions with as many visitors as possible, the museum remains open 365 days a year and offers free admission.
