The ASE-certified technicians at NAPA Auto Care Center mollycoddle motorcars with services that help improve performance and extend vehicle life. Old, cantankerous oil is replaced with idealistic young oil, ready to fight the good fight against dirt, heat, and fiendish friction factions, and tire rotation promotes even wear. A tip-to-tank, AAA-approved 80-point inspection tests the condition of everything from battery life to coolant pH levels with a series of Sphinx-like riddles. Owners receive an eight-paneled brochure detailing their car’s inspection results for future reference. In addition to ride-pampering services, NAPA also provides a courtesy shuttle to whisk owners to and fro, reducing instances of vehicular-separation anxiety.
At Ruth Messmer Florist Inc., third-generation florists arrange fragrant roses, asiatic lilies, and vivid daisies into fragrant bouquets for any occasion. They can create classic arrangements with sleek, simple glass vases and decorative ribbons or enhance blooms with creative flourishes such as plush stuffed animals, balloons, or wicker baskets.
In addition to flowers, florists fill gift baskets with epicurean treats such as Ghirardelli chocolates, dried meats, fruit, and wheels of cheese jacked from Mighty Mouse’s Cadillac.
The adrenaline junkies at Estero Island Parasail send guests soaring through clear Floridian skies whether it's warm or cold. Their small fleet of powerboats cuts through Gulf waves as parachutes carry guests high into the sky and back down to the water's surface to avoid collisions with low-flying UFOs or for quick dips into the sea.
FrameWorks prepares art and memorabilia for wall appearances by enveloping them in fashionable custom mats and frames. Each piece of artwork luxuriates in the attention of experienced framers, who employ their eye for design and more than 40 years of combined framing experience to give each piece a custom home in which to reside until retiring to Barbados. Customers can peruse the shop’s display of more than 2,000 molding frames—including certified Larson-Juhl 22k gold frames—hundreds of mats, and nonglare, plexiglas, and UV–protection glass to discover a design that speaks to their personality, their home’s décor, and their invisible entourage. In addition to framing traditional print art and photographs, FrameWorks also assembles shadowboxes to commemorate special occasions such as weddings, concerts, and interplanetary vacations. Prices for custom framing vary based on size, mounting, mats, glass, and frame choice; the shop can outfit a 16"x20" image for anywhere from $100 to $500.
