One of America’s best cleaners, Embassy Cleaners banishes dirt and wrangles wrinkles from all manner of sartorial body coverings. In business since 1937, Embassy practices environmentally sound scrubbing and uses biodegradable packaging that saves approximately 20,000 pounds of plastic from landfills and the dark depths of the plastic underworld. Great for the sparkly cleaning of camouflage cargo pants, Embassy Cleaners saves dirt-trodden clothes from back-of-closet oblivion. These debonair dirt-busters are also deft hands at the art of drapery cleaning, and serve prestigious clients such as The Shubert Theater Organization and the Ritz Carlton Hotel and Residences.
Inspired by European, vintage, and modern design trends, Milieu's design services guide room-dwellers toward updated and personalized interior styles. The re-accessorize and e-design packages use phone and online consultation. The former package crafts a fully accessorized room plan based on project budget and scope, potentially offering product suggestions for soft goods such as pillows and rugs along with plans for lighting, small tables, and careful placement of neon octopi. A completely personalized design scheme characterizes the e-design package, as Milieu uses user-provided room measurements to arrive at a floor plan and recommend furniture, wall décor, and paint colors as well as soft goods and lighting.
Hands-on learning and playtime in JW Tumbles’ interactive classes help children explore the far reaches of their cranial caverns. Parents with toddlers younger than 3 years old can enroll in parent-participation classes such as Squeakers Class, geared toward four- to 10-month-olds, Little Maestros is a musical adventure for kids four months to five years, or Wobblers Class, where baby bodybuilders 11 to 18 months old practice tumbling and balance to increase motor skills and decrease the need for sippy-cup creatine shakes. Ages 3 and older can fly solo—parents can watch from the sidelines if they wish—during age-appropriate and highly interactive independent classes. The Stompers Class prep 3- to 4.5-year-olds for kindergarten, while Specialty Classes introduces kids from 3 to 7 years old to specific forms of fun in a non-competitive environment. Each class meets once a week, leaving plenty of time for use of the playspace passes.
An innovative, child-focused program pioneered in Korea, E.nopi's educational classes have enriched and enlightened curious kids for 30 years with individualized approaches that strive to understand the child’s point of view. Each class begins with a skills assessment to tailor instruction to children's strengths before launching into a fun and approachable lesson that may use learning aides such as colorful workbooks, whimsical wooden shapes, and entertaining audio CDs. New concepts are continually revisited in a variety of creative contexts to reinforce learned skills and keep ideas from taking their summer escapes to libraries in the Caribbean, and light, consistent take-home work is encouraged to keep intellectual elements flowing. Math classes stress critical thinking and problem solving to engage brainy bambinos in independent thought as they glean a better understanding of arithmetic, patterns, geometry, and more. Meanwhile, English classes streamline skills in listening, speaking, reading, and writing, resulting in the ability to lull parents to sleep with softly read news articles. Geared toward ages 3–14, each class is aligned to U.S. educational standards and can serve as educational enrichment, a supplement to regular schooling, or preparation for being a contestant on Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader?.
