With vibrant specimens and detailed instruction, Petals for the People assists floral fans in creating their own fetching arrangements. Each customer will receive a bundle of seasonal flowers and greens that can be grouped into two or three arrangements, as well as access to helpful online instruction that can mold nature’s colorful flair into eye-catching bouquets. While many grocery stores stock flowers on the shelf for an extended period of time, Petals for the People collects the freshest and most intriguing flowers from the U.S., South America, Holland, and Thailand and ships them directly to the customer from its warehouse. The resulting product is a striking and long-lasting arrangement that’s sure to spruce up any home, office, or captain’s quarters on a circumnavigating carrack.
Walking into The Carlyle Club isn't quite time-travel, but it's not far off. Evoking both the look and feel of a swank, 1930s New York nightclub, the lounge and supper club combines swirling wallpaper, gilded mirrors, and lamp-lit tables with a robust entertainment calendar that encourages guests to strap on their dancing shoes and their singing-along snorkels.
The Metropolitan School of the Arts—formerly the Metropolitan Fine Arts Center—was founded more than 14 years ago. This multidisciplinary performing-arts organization takes a holistic approach to teaching and encouraging performance-arts skills, creating performance opportunities in dance, music, and theater for a diverse population of students of all ages and abilities. Its students have gone to perform on Broadway, at The Juilliard School, and in highly esteemed companies, such as the Mark Morris Dance Company, The Washington Ballet, and Ford's Theater and Signature Theater. Youth programs include year-round programs in dance, theater, music, music-theater, and acting, as well as a performing-arts program in the summer, all for children as young as 2. Adult classes range from basic to advanced, including ballet, jazz, and tap lessons, plus yoga and ballet-barre fitness workouts.
