For decades, JCPenney Portraits has welcomed families into its friendly studios, where professional photographers expertly photograph subjects of any age. Digital cameras, professional lighting, and a wide selection of backgrounds all work together to ensure a professional, personalized look for every family portrait, school picture, business headshot, or baby announcement. To customize the session even more, the staff also encourages guests to incorporate items with special meaning such as a baby blanket, a family heirloom, or the wishbone from grandma's first Thanksgiving.
After the final flash, clients and a team member head to the viewing kiosk, where they can select their photos and customize them. Beyond traditional printed portraits, memories may also be preserved on high-resolution CD, gallery wraps, wall art, or through JCPenney Portraits' archival program, which allows clients to store and share their portraits online.
When requests for their showstopping seafood dishes poured in from more friends and family than they could fit inside their kitchen, the Krieger family set up shop inside a roomy Victorian mansion. Today, Ligonier Tavern still serves up crab cakes and ciopinno, as well as burgers made with local grass-fed beef. Diners can pair their meals with a drink from the bar, such as a cocktail made with Knob Creek bourbon, whether they're seated in the restaurant's solarium, its main dining room, or on its second-floor balcony.
Pluma features flavors from across the globe, with Asian fusion, traditional American, hints of Tex-Mex, invasions of Grecian flavor, and Mediterranean traditionals. Crash-land your appetite on the restaurant’s runway-sized menu and scour the pages to settle on an appetizer such as fried provolone (breaded and fried provolone cheese with house-made marinara, $8.95). Then, split a 16-inch meat lover’s pizza with a carnivorous amore (house-made sauce, sausage, pepperoni, ham, bacon, and Italian cheeses, $9.95).
Just because an invitation asks you to bring a "covered dish" to an event, that doesn't mean you can't get a little help with the cooking. In fact, the menu for the catering company Deli-Icious has a special section just for hot covered dishes, such as roast-beef asparagus rolls with horseradish cream cheese or shrimp and pasta primavera. Of course, the company can also provide full catering for events. For instance, a buffet package might include meat and cheese trays, vegetable platters, and your choice of hot dishes.
The McGinnis Sisters specialty stores are run by the coincidentally named McGinnis sisters. This is a truly familial enterprise, founded by their mother and father in 1946. The daughters expanded the store's selection and gravitational pull throughout the years while still retaining the literal mom 'n' pop attention to detail and quality. Fresh and local products dominate the shelves in each of the cozy markets. Chicken and pork fill meat cases, while recently reeled catches grace the icy displays at the seafood counter. You'll find quality deli meats and even freshly prepared lunch sandwiches ($4.99–$5.99) at the in-house delicatessen. Follow your whiskers to sniff out locally acquired cheese or daily-made bakery sensations.
