It’s hard to find a monkey to attend a child’s birthday party, and even harder to find a purple one. But at Monkey Joe’s, the furry purple mascot makes an appearance at every child’s party, delighting kids already excited by the inflatable-filled play area.
Youngsters whoosh down colorful slides, bounce in jump areas, and build agility in its obstacle courses. While their kids safely frolic on sanitized inflatables supervised by staffers, parents can relax in an adult area with free WiFi, flat-screen TVs, and computer stations, as well as refreshments at the concession area. Kids 3 years old and younger have a separate play area, meaning they can happily play without having to listen to the elderly 11-year-olds talk about “when I was your age.”
Chef Soba Camara began cooking at the tender age of 8. A lifetime of cooking eventually led to opening A Taste of a Party, where she and her staff craft dishes from organic ingredients and spices. Many of the dishes have an African or Caribbean flair, but the chefs also work with clients to create a menu that's best suited to the occasion, whether it's a dinner party, birthday celebration, or surprise party for a beloved mailman.
Hour-long photo sessions with Montenero's sensualist shutterbugs yield tasteful, alluring images. Sprightly retro pin-ups recall a time when exposed knees were thought to incite Communism, while more concupiscent boudoir photos awaken subjects' latent sultriness while they pout, preen, and lounge in lingerie. Budding vixens can choose between either a shoot at the photographers' Lawrenceville studio or one within the comfort of their own homes, finally unlocking the eroticism lurking within old leather recliners or double-basin bathroom sinks. Basic retouching services are included with the deal, which is personalized according to each subject's areas of confidence and results in an 8"x10" print.
