The Intro to Photography class is produced by Monte Zucker Photographic Education (MZPE), which provides quality professional photographic instruction. More than 30,000 enthusiastic students of all levels have attended their photographic tours on three continents over the past seven years to learn how to combine the power of technical expertise and artistic vision to create beautiful photos and films. In addition to offering the tours, MZPE produces instructional books and DVDs, as well as teaching in-depth photo-master classes around the world. The 2002 United Nations Photographer of the Year, celebrated photographer and mentor Monte Zucker once stated, "I don’t photograph the world as it is. I photograph the world as I would like it to be." Continuing on in his memory, current instructor Bob Ray teaches with an entertaining, passionate presentation that focuses on learning immediately in class. The experience provides an aspiring photographer a comprehensive set of tools to reach his or her artistic potential.

Our customers regularly comment on how tasty our meal plans are, and [tell us] that we introduce them to foods they have never tried, but have become some of their new favorites.
What inspired you or the owner (if that?s not you) to start or run this business?
We have worked in the food industry for many years and are foodies. We know what we like and recognize how easy it is to struggle with your weight. People do want to eat healthy, but some don't know how, some don't have the time, and so, so many try diet plans. Even if they meet their weight goals, they have a hard time maintaining that weight. I understand the difficulty in weight loss, and began working with a nutritionist to take control. From talking to so many people dealing with similar challenges, Fresh Healthy Tasty was born.
What?s your favorite part about your job?
I am always excited to hear about the success stories of our customers. We develop great relationships with our customers, and it's so rewarding to hear about their weight loss, how much better they feel, or simply that we make their busy lives much easier.
Though you can always drive up to the Historic Downtowner Saloon, that's not the recommended way to arrive. Instead, customers might want to take the water taxi right up to the downtown stop to get a preview of the river views granted by the restaurant's riverfront patio. Here, guests can enhance their waterside experience with expertly prepared American fare and 20 new craft beers waiting to quench to the most discerning drinker.
While new owners now helm Historic Downtowner Saloon, its chefs tend to their culinary labors, be it slow-roasting prime rib or turning out seafood specials, sandwiches, and appetizers. In the kitchen, they grill slabs of sizzling sirloins and pair them crab cakes drizzled in a Cajun remoulade. Once delivered to guests, ancho shrimp tacos do flavorful dances across palates, while a raw bar, stocked with bowls of littleneck clams and Caribbean jerk shrimp, puts appetites on ice. Most nights of the week, a live band serenades guests with tunes as relaxing as surfing on a waterbed—unless there are sharks inside the waterbed.
Classic rolls and house-made focaccia and ciabatta bread embrace Adam's Subs Catering Co.'s 35+ hot and cold sub sandwiches.

The kitchen team also prepares teriyaki- and ranch-slathered burgers and fajitas and quesadillas to complete the sandwich family. Adam's also dishes out hearty breakfast food, such as egg sandwiches, breakfast wraps, pancakes, and Manhattan Gourmet Coffee. Exposed brick and sleek corrugated metal lend an urban edge to the newly renovated dining room, whose cushioned booths and leather chair-circumscribed lounge area, equipped with free wi-fi, add a cozy feel.
