Using wrung-from-the-wild seafood, Skipper's Seafood and Chowder House dunks cod in thick batter and submerges fish 'n' chips in hot oil to forge dishes tweaked over the course of 40 years in business. Rainforest-themed décor transports diners to warmer climes as they nosh hearty helpings of french fries alongside two slabs of crispy fish or chicken as heart-warming and crunchy as a deep-fried valentine. Chefs cut seafood by hand to craft ideally sized tenders to fuel chatter between couples, pals, or duos attempting to steal Poseidon's identity, and the restaurant's kitchen harnesses locally sourced produce and wild-caught seafood to promote sustainability and pamper dining consciences.
A Rocky Mountain horizon peaks over the roof of Larry H. Miller Chrysler Jeep Dodge's glass-walled showroom as glimmering rows of new and preowned autos file neatly into the spaces of an expansive lot. Tucked inside the service department, mechanics outfit cars with everything from OEM auto parts to sips of oil and fresh new filters. Convenient Saturday hours also allow hurried businesspeople to avoid stressing out in between going to work and taking shark-taming classes.
Scott and Nancy Litke opened a roadside food shack in partial tribute to Scott’s grandparents, Emmett and Ethel, who have quite a backstory: After a run-in with the law, Emmett disappeared in 1934, and the couple became a local legend. Just for fun, Scott challenges guests to a bounty game: any customer who brings in someone named “Emmett” will be rewarded with free lunch. The Emmett also receives a shirt and a place on the wall of fame. It’s one of a few challenges the restaurant offers to customers—there are also eating contests, including Man v. Emmett’s Burger and Man v. Ethel’s Sundae.
Since its opening, the “shack” has been updated to become a 2,800-square foot restaurant. The ethic is the same, though: Emmett’s and Ethel’s churns out fresh, homemade food, such as gourmet burgers, hot dogs, and baskets piled high with fish and chicken that has been hand-cut in the kitchen. In addition to traditional malts and shakes, guests can savor parlor-style ice cream sundaes with ingredients such as deep fried peach halves, toasted almond ice cream, and brownies.
The professional photographers at Target Portrait Studios capture paramount moments in premier lighting with high-tech digital cameras and a choice of vivid background images. After clients discuss pose preferences with their portraitist, subjects take the stage for approximately 10 minutes of flashing bulbs, bright smiles, and focused lenses. Clients are welcome to bring props and shadow puppets from home, and after choosing a background, they can further customize each image with one of the studio's props, if desired.
