Instructor Owen Biddle shares his passion for shutterbugging during small, personalized classes at his eponymous photography school. A photo artist himself, Owen doesn't separate composition from technical instruction; instead, he invites students to see the artistic possibilities in everything they do with their cameras. Besides photography classes for all levels, from beginner to advanced, he also leads photo salons and field trips to help his pupils hone their skills.

"There are no strangers here—just friends you have yet to meet,” so reads the motto painted on the parchment-colored walls of Maggie O'Neill's foyer. The pub aims to live up to this neighborly ethos by offering up an inviting hangout space with three stories. In the top-floor bar area, you can sip on a draft beer, play shuffleboard, or catch a basketball game on TV. The downstairs dining area has table draped in linens, and you can head here to enjoy beer-battered fish and chips and golden-brown shepherd’s pie. Maggie O’Neill’s décor is an homage to Ireland: there’s a hand-painted Guinness ad on the building's exterior, and the bartop is made of dark varnished wood. Along the walls inside, you might notice the Poet's Corner, which is dedicated to famous Irish authors. It has impassioned musings on art from James Joyce, witty nuggets of wisdom from Jonathan Swift, and Brendan Behan’s rhymed shopping lists.
