  • Picasso's Cup Art Cafe
    What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition? Since we are the only pottery painting studio in the area, our competition is mostly the movie theater and other forms of entertainment. At our cafe-style studio, having something interesting and unique to do while having a conversation is a great outing with family and friends. What is the experience customers can expect? Our studio is DIY, casual, and eclectic. When you walk in, you can select your pottery surface and seat yourself at one of our whimsical tables. We'll give you a tour of our paint bar and a few tips and set you free to paint. Pottery takes around 4?7 days to fire. We do ship if you prefer. What was the inspiration to start or run this business? When I visited a studio out of town 13 years ago, I was refreshed to see dads and daughters, mothers and sons, couples on dates, and a family painting together as a form of entertainment. With young children, I wanted to bring family-friendly activity for relationship building to our area. What do you love most about your job? I love seeing families spending time together laughing, couples talking, children creating?boys in particular. I've seen marriage proposals to several terminally ill [customers] making memories for and with loved ones. I love feeling like my studio is a community gathering place where memories are made.

  • Rib Crib
    Proponents of dry rub can be found across the Midwest—Oklahoma’s barbecue joints are an especially good bet. If you ask any of these die-hards, they’ll say that what dry-rubbed meats lack in sauce, they make up for in the delicately balanced flavors of their spices. Rib Crib BBQ & Grill captures these flavors and brings them to its cozy Lakeland restaurant, where guests can feast on chicken, ribs, and briskets smoked onsite over hickory chips. In addition to pit choices, Rib Crib dishes out Southern¬-style sides such as corn on the cob, mac ‘n’ cheese, and slow-cooked cowboy beans that guests can lasso individually with a tiny rope of floss.:m]]

  • Habibi
    Born in the Lebanese city of Tripoli before moving to Canada in the '80s, Frank Ishraki was raised on the traditional cultures and flavors of his homeland.

The Lakeland location is a convenient, quick-service shawarma stop complete with chicken, lamb, and beef loaded on rotating spits to cook evenly and slowly hypnotize diners. Guests can enjoy meats wrapped in pita or served on a platter with tabbouleh and hummus or go vegetarian with rice-stuffed grape leaves and fried falafel.
