For more than 24 years, the cleaning staff at Nu Look Cleaners has been vanquishing stains and coddling clothing and other items, in addition to making repairs. A stain-disdaining staff cleanses soiled garments using advanced machines and products designed to produce no chemical odor, so that every suit, comforter, or rug that wanders through the door leaves clean and smelling as fresh as a shampooed flower. To make sure no stealthy stains have slipped under the radar, the team inspects all garments two times before sending them home. Nu Look Cleaners can accommodate patrons with same-day service, and the staff’s alterations help clothes to fit better for those who have recently lost weight from working out or lost height from wearing lead top hats.
For the better part of three decades, the technicians at Fountain Cleaners have been wrapping up freshly cleaned suits, blouses, and trousers for customers throughout the area. In addition to dry-cleaning and removing stains faster than a domesticated fire hose, the staff members also perform alterations for a variety of garments.
The Bee's Knee's Learn & Play employs Montessori techniques to fuse discovery and fun in an indoor academic playground setting. The romping ground's hour-long special classes (a $75 value/five-week session) cover a variety of topics, average around 12 students each, and emphasize principles such as constructive play, musical expression, movement, and a social curriculum of sharing, taking turns, and never sneezing. Mommy & Me sessions, which are grouped according to age, focus on caregivers as a child's primary teacher and source of melba toast. Toddler Transition is designed to ease children ages 2.5–5 into full-time school, while Spanish-immersion class challenges children ages 5–10 to navigate lessons, story time, crafts, games, and songs in a new language. No matter the lesson, each class follows a routine that includes a communal circle with songs, story time, a snack break, crafts, a trip to the treasure box, and cleanup. During optional open play before and after each class (a $25 value for a five-week pass), as well as during special sessions, children are free to explore the center's electronics-free plethora of playthings, including a Thomas and Friends train table, costumes, puppets, puzzles, an interactive play kitchen, and a life-size DMV.
Being able to manipulate the mood of a party can make you feel very powerful, whether it is to bring dancers to the floor or happy tears to eyes. Nobody really wants to do that at their own party, though, and that's where JD from Peterson's Parties comes in. He relies on experience from performing at venues such as Speakeasy Lounge, and he consults with customers in advance to make sure that he's playing the right music for their event. The company also dispatches photographers and other workers who can complete a party or make it seem like you're wearing a wedding dress for a normal reason.
