At Black Rose Rentals, helpful teams of party suppliers deck out celebrations with brand-new equipment. The staff sets up summery white canopies over outdoor banquets and facilitates toe tapping with DJ rental systems. Inflatable moonwalk palaces keep revelers entertained and airborne, while portable dance floors turn lawns and patios into glitzy ballrooms. Black Rose Rentals delivers, installs, and strikes all equipment, and staffers are backed by the confidence of full item insurance, a million-dollar liability, and a pat on the back from Bacchus.
At Shambaugh Family Dentistry, patients can clean up dingy smiles with a variety of whitening services. The process for acquiring whitening trays (a $350 value) begins with a 20-minute initial consultation. A brief examination ensures that teeth are healthy enough to be beautified, and upper and lower bite impressions are taken. Come back one week later to pick up the trays; it takes about 20 minutes to deliver the whitening trays and learn the instructions. Opt for the Zoom! Whitening treatment (a $475 value) and experience shade-shifting results of at least six to ten shades. After a 20-minute initial appointment, this quick, pain-free process takes just over an hour and involves the application of a scientifically formulated gel that activates under a specially designed Zoom! light. Feel free to kick back and relax as the activated gel makes its way into your teeth, targeting discolorations and transforming smiles from sparkling to most sparklingist. Much like building a cubicle, the entire Zoom! process takes place in-office, which means you'll be exempt from additional take-home whitening regimens.
With machines set up in rows to encourage competition, many ordinary gyms cater to men's bodies and psychology, right down to the urinals that were "accidentally" installed in the women's locker room. At Curves, you'll move around a circuit of hydraulic resistance machines that have been designed to work with women's bodies and promote weight loss, protect against osteoporosis, and deal with arthritis. An experienced trainer is always nearby to help manage your machine maneuvering and your muscle making. Instead of fiddling with weight stacks and losing your momentum, the hydraulic machines use your body weight and fitness level to create resistance that matches your abilities, decreasing the risk of soreness or injury. Because traditional lift-and-lower motions create bulky muscles, each machine uses push-and-pull motions to create toned, lean muscles perfect for crushing a grapefruit without looking like you can.

Competitors and friends converge to fill their spare time with strikes and high-fives, and to scatter pins atop Georgetown Bowl's 40 lanes. Automatic-scoring systems track points as bowlers chase the elusive 300-point gutter ball seven days a week—including on Beer Bash Friday, when all-you-can drink drafts supplement two hours of unlimited bowling. Inside the Sports Gallery Lounge, four big-screen TVs broadcast both professional and college games, and at the snack bar, bites of wings, wraps, and pizza help players refuel between frames. Beyond the lanes and video arcade, the full-service pro shop's industry veteran, Trace Chamberlin, helps upgrade equipment by re-drilling holes to fit their owners' fingers or rolled-up treasure maps pointing to the center pin.
A fish arcs out of bright-blue water looking so realistic that one expects the fuzzy teddy bear standing nearby to be showered in a smattering of droplets. Courtney's Bakery’s staff sculpts cakes in three-dimensional renderings of dolls, sports arenas, and tropical waterfalls. In flavors such as carrot walnut, island coconut, and marble, these cakes also appear as cupcakes for a handheld dessert or tossing into your loved one’s mouths. Courtney claims inspiration from her mother, a self-taught baker who influenced the recipes for cookies and cinnamon rolls.
