Each shop also stocks balsamic vinegars that have been aged for a minimum of 12 years, or a single viewing of Beverly Hills Chihuahua’s ambitious director’s cut. Di Olivas also carries more than 15 varieties of traditional and flavored gourmet coffees and keeps two dozen flavors of De Cio and Rossi Pasta on hand, including tomato sanoran spice, artichoke, and chocolate cabernet.

Chesterfield Sports Fusion doesn't limit its visitors to just one or two attractions. Within the 30,000-square-foot facility, sport courts, electronic games, and an array of attractions create enough fun to share with the whole family, even weird second cousins. To pique competitive appetites, the facility hosts 35 arcade games and The Vault, a futuristic, laser-filled obstacle course. Modeled after a movie set, the laser-tag arena hosts matches amid two stories of black-lit scenery, and the trickling sounds of a waterfall serve as the soundtrack for an indoor 18-hole mini-golf course. For athletic play, Chesterfield Sports Fusion boasts a 20-foot climbing wall and a dodge-ball arena. Chesterfield Sports Fusion recognizes that having fun is for all ages and rents its facility out for everything from kids' birthday parties to corporate functions to ceremonies honoring a freshly made pair of dentures.
With keen eyes for detail, Missouri Maid Services' cleaning crew makes quick work of household messes by adhering closely to a 40-point checklist. The standard plan of attack entails a comprehensive offensive of vacuuming, dusting, and sanitizing in every room of the house, driving the hordes of dust bunnies out of their hiding places and into the trashcan of defeat. Chore lists can also be lengthened with add-on services such as laundry, deep appliance cleaning, clutter organization, and steam-cleaning treatments.
While maids rid homes of detritus, clutter, and tumbleweeds, the pest-control team deploys pet- and child-safe products to stave off mosquitoes, bed bugs, termites, and other invading pests. Committed to green practices, the team utilizes EPA-registered products and creates programs that prevent infestations without depending on pesticides, instead using indoor solutions that are less risky to human health.
