The sizes of UPS's durable shipping boxes ($2–$15) range from jewelry box to jukebox, making it easy to delight far-off loved ones with tokens of affection or frustrate enemies with a package containing 12 nested boxes. Larger, lighter-weight moving boxes build strength with an array of tape, bubble wrap, and packing peanuts. The UPS Store's on-site packaging experts gladly assess moving and shipping needs, dishing out advice on the number of boxes one might need or the best way to wrap one's extensive collection of Harry Caray snow globes.
When kids arrive to their friend's birthday party, they immediately find themselves embroiled in an unsolved mystery. They must find the elusive criminal before the party is over, and no cake will be had or "Congratulations on Another Trip Around the Sun" will be sung until the whodunit is solved. Before these tiny detectives arrive on the birthday mystery scene, the meticulous party planners from Parties2Pamper have set up a fun scavenger hunt packed with clues, and prepared a character and background for each guest. This lively immersive themed party is just one of the many experiences these kid-focused planners can create for birthday boys and girls on their big days. Depending on the party that parents choose, the staff might set up science experiments or arrange an entire carnival with face panting, balloon animals, and cotton candy. If kids or parents have something in mind outside the preplanned parties, the birthday experts can customize parties around virtually any theme clients can dream up.

Chef Pedro Ramirez can often be seen hovering over a crackling spit, tending to the pig that roasts over its flame in the open air. When the bounty is finished cooking, Ramirez whips it up into pork sandwiches and platters—a Ramirez Restaurant specialty for nearly two decades. A retired US Navy Chief, Ramirez now leads his kitchen staff as they craft fresh ingredients into authentic Cuban, Mexican, and Puerto Rican dishes infused with homemade spices akin to the ones used by Ramirez's ancestors from Santo Domingo. In the dining room, designed in the style of a beach bungalow, Latin paintings hang over tables topped with homemade sangria and margaritas, and an outdoor patio supports the tropical atmosphere with flags and strands of lights as powerful as a billionth of a sun.
