Leave the jeans, baseball caps, and sneakers at home and unthaw a colourful spring outfit from its deep-freeze chamber for a festive night on the town from THE WORKS.
Last year, Jenny's Light launched the Circle of Moms support group, a welcoming space for women to meet twice a month to discuss the challenging aspects of motherhood. Due to the pilot program’s success, Jenny's Light plans to create a resource guide to help certified support groups launch Circle of Moms programs in other cities. In order to replicate the program elsewhere, the organization needs to raise funds to develop a curriculum guide. Each guide will include at least eight session outlines and a DVD that will be used during group sessions.
Laura Monahan comes from an artistic family, and spent her youth practicing sculpture, oil painting, pottery, and what turned out to be her ultimate passion: photography. Her ability to preserve candid moments has left an indelible impression—she has a published portfolio on three continents and product lines appearing at national retailers such as Hallmark and JCPenney. Laura’s photo shoots always take place outdoors, capturing newborns, older kids, families, and makeshift popsicle-stick families in soft, natural lighting and poses that never appear unnatural. Her settings span the country from San Diego’s foamy beaches to Denver’s red-rock sunsets and into the Midwest’s autumn leaves.
Inside a restaurant whose vibrant purple awnings help diners spot it from afar, cooks concoct 75 different dishes derived from the "roof of the world." Artwork-laden walls surround the tables and cushioned chairs in the dining area, where patrons enjoy home-cooked items ranging from Tibetan-style dumplings made with lean chopped beef to batter-fried sesame chicken. The restaurant's separate bar area provides patrons with a place where they can grab a drink, watch TV, and practice thumb-wrestling moves with others.
By its very name, Tuttle's Eat, Bowl, Play commands its guests to do three things, all of which they can easily enjoy within a single visit. For "eat," cooks prepare a diverse menu of burgers, sandwiches, and pizzas, a comfort-food smorgasbord akin to your cooler grandma's Thanksgiving spread. For "bowl," 24 modern lanes glow under cosmic light shows and six jumbo video screens. And finally, for "play," entertainment abounds inside the colorful game room, at the full-service bar, and on karaoke or trivia nights—both activities in which players can hopefully put their encyclopedic knowledge of German techno lyrics to use.
