Every graduate of The Premium Institute of Bartending Schools' 34-hour mixology program can count on one thing—being hired as an on-call bartender with Premium Event Staffing, a company that provides staff for private parties and corporate events. Like a pie-fight truce, this guarantee benefits everyone involved. Students get to earn income while they use the institute's job-placement services to find a steady gig at an affiliated bar or elsewhere. Premium Event Staffing in turn gets access to bartenders who have completed the mixology program and who know their way around a muddler.
The reason even the institute's most recent graduates are so comfortable behind a bar isn't that they're wearing footie pajamas under their clothes—it's that classes take place in such a realistic setting. Students work at a bar setup that includes bar guns, liquor bottles, and 14 types of glasses, and they learn to pour on a real draft-beer system. This hands-on approach also characterizes the four-hour introductory classes the school holds for people who wish to learn to make martinis, shots, frozen drinks, or other specialties.
Boasting a spacious driving range and practice areas for putting and chipping, Timbercreek Golf Center helps club-toting clientele hone all facets of their golf games. Buckets brimming with obedient range balls facilitate swing improvements, as each spheroid willfully subjects itself to swing experiments while commending duffers for their stylish neon knickers. All-grass hitting areas further enhance practice sessions, as the organic surface more closely emulates on-course lies and allows golfers to seek divot-tearing vengeance on Mother Earth for a lifetime of debilitating grass stains. Well-struck drives jettison balls into the stratosphere before they rain down on the range's large target greens that beckon in the distance. The range is also illuminated each night, enabling divoteers to hone swings in late-night sessions.
Since 2000, Art House has kindled creativity and a love of history by offering museum-quality art classes for budding Picassos aged three through adult. Inside each location, degreed artist-teachers helm classes year-round, guiding students through a structured curriculum in everything from drawing and painting to sculpting.

Art House also brings art-loving youths together in camps, workshops, and private parties.
