The dessert technicians at Top It Off Frozen Yogurt & Smoothies satisfy sweet cravings with a delicious lineup of fruit-, chocolate-, and cake-flavored treats. Nestled within brightly painted walls adorned with trees and swirls, a rainbow-colored self-serve display doles out frozen treats ($0.45/oz.) like a mechanical candy man, filling bowls with fro-yo flavors including old-fashioned peanut butter, milk chocolate, or low-fat red-velvet cake. Selected flavors allow diners to spoil dinners with minimal damage, sweetly serenading palates with no-sugar-added and non-dairy varieties. In addition to enticing taste buds with dulcet frozen treats, 20-ounce smoothies ($4.99 each) deliver fruity packages of flavor in slurpable form, and free WiFi feeds laptops delicious desserts of silly cat videos and Photoshopped toddlers.
Sips and Snips guides budding blossomists in the practiced art of petal arranging using flowers from local nurturer Helena Florist. Skilled instructors teach amateur artists how to arrange seasonal and themed bouquets during the approximately two-hour classes. The upcoming Spring Fever class on April 7 ($45) celebrates vernal splendor, and Greetings from the Garden on April 19 ($40) coaches flowers in proper diction so they can drop their uncouth Cockney accents.
The Bead Biz's bright, cheerful shop is bursting with beads and baubles of all shapes and sizes. Sparkling batches of Swarovski crystals, Japanese seed beads, and glassworked beads invite an artistic eye to adopt them and set them loose upon a string that catches the eyes of passersby and arouses the envy of dully colored mollusks. To burn love into the heart of an uninformed crush, pick up a few fire-polished strands ($3 each or $12 for six) and intertwine them with a variety of base metal chains ($1.75 and up). Or nourish natural beauty with turquoise, jaspers, and agates ($9 and up each). A wide selection of jewelry-making tools is also available. Uncertain shoppers can call upon the sharp eye of The Bead Biz's friendly cats or the friendly knowledge of the expert staff; the owner is a veteran lampworker and wire-wrapper who has a degree in fashion.
