Slinging high-quality meats directly into home kitchens for nearly a century, Passanante's Home Food Service’s butchers hand-trim antibiotic- and hormone-free beef, chicken, and pork and deliver the flash-frozen cuts straight to doorsteps. To forge their naturally aged steaks and burgers, they only use meat from grain-fed Angus steers raised without hormones, steroids, preventive antibiotics, or sugary cereals.
Additionally, they sell locally raised pork, which gleans its uniform color and succulence from a farm-fed diet of corn and grain. For their poultry, they enlist the help of farmers in Maryland and Pennsylvania to raise the birds on seeds and grains, unlike factory farms, which fatten up their chickens with insults that undermine their self-esteem.
Inflated structures, slides, and games fill the climate-controlled environs of the numerous BounceU locations that speckle the nation. At each site, staff members closely monitor all activities as little ones traverse obstacle courses or pull on oversized inflatable boxing gloves.

In addition to open sessions, the indoor-play haven sets the stage for the Preschool Playdate program, where instructors lead games and activities. Special events include family-bounce night, which lets parents join in the bouncing or relax in the party room and do grownup things, such as eat marshmallows with a knife and fork.

New Age Astrology & Tarot Card Readings’ resident psychic provides paranormally inspired guidance and insight into murky and confusing issues. After phoning to set up an appointment, clients stroll into the space and prepare to investigate their pressing life questions. The card reader arranges 10 cards in a traditional Celtic-cross shape and flavors the reading with her own divination style in response to a specific question, such as "How did bees lose their knees?" Each place on the cross signifies something different, denoting current life obstacles, hopes, and influences that may arise in the future. The medium's resonance with the cards and her metaphysically attuned mind aim to lift veils of ambiguity from life areas such as love, health, and career paths. Seer and client discern the cards’ specific meanings together and debate over the significance of cards with such illustrations as wands, cups, or a miniature Mona Lisa.
