Locally owned and community oriented, Mills Squeegee Fill Stations provide top-notch automotive service in a clean and friendly environment. Lavish a four-wheeled life love with an Ultimate car wash ($10), or cover the basics with an Express wash ($5), which leaves plenty of time to pick up a slice of pizza ($1.99) along with a 32-ounce fountain drink ($1.09). Alternatively, 12-ounce coffee refills send drowsiness packing ($0.89), and donuts propose to sweet teeth, presenting their chocolate rings as a token of their everlasting devotion ($0.91). Car washes only take about five minutes, so shiny street wanderers can get back on the road in the blink of a headlight.
Five beginner knitting classes at The Yarn Shop will take fledgling yarn spinners over all the knitting basics—knitting and purling, increasing and decreasing, ribbing, and more—as they complete their first scarf. The cost of all materials is covered, including a light or bright wool yarn and size-eight bamboo, circular needles. Additional supplies are available for purchase; the shop carries a full line of knitting and crocheting supplies and enough yarn to fill the scalps of a race of giant Raggedy Ann’s. Help is always available for projects, which many people bring to the shop to work on as they socialize and weave the names of disloyal latch hookers onto their tea cozies. Enjoy a dessert and specialty coffee or tea from The Yarn Shop's Pink Sheep Cafe. See the website for class schedules and pricing.
The tigers, lions, and jaguars at Henry Doorly Zoo may not realize it, but the professionals at Lumbermen’s Hearth & Home expertly laid the brick walls that surround their cat complex. Constructing brick and stone exteriors for exotic animals is just one of the ambitious projects Lumbermen’s has tackled since 1932, when they opened their doors with the mission of serving local lumberyards. After eight decades of hard work, the fourth-generation family-owned operation gradually expanded the scope and size of their business, which now houses four sprawling showrooms. These spaces showcase myriad options for customizing their customers’ decks and outdoor landscapes, such as grills from brands including Napoleon, patio furniture, and fire pits. Lumbermen’s also makes interiors cozy, tricking out living rooms with fireplaces and stoves capable of burning fraudulent tax documents rolled into logs.
At K/B Stables, instructor Donna Stading-Smith imparts the equine wisdom she has been accruing since she first saddled up when she was 3 years old. As a former elementary media specialist and a 4-H teacher for 14 years, she’s experienced in making horseback riding a comfortable and fun activity for both beginners and more seasoned riders. Regular lessons and training prep students to take the reins for casual or competitive rides in English, western, or dressage styles. When they're not supporting budding equestrians, some 20 horses gallop across K/B Stables’ 11 acres. The family-run stable hosts 30 stalls for boarding accommodations by the night, week, month, or whatever period of time the horse’s former girlfriend said it needed to “sort things out.”
