Marc Kornbluh knows glass. The Tisch School of the Arts graduate and renowned artist has learned to manipulate the medium until it takes on the form of just about any shape, whether it’s a cluster of flowers, a spiky fish, or a seashell perched on a smooth orb. In his humble downtown studio space, Kornbluh expertly wields torches as he melts glass into submission, creating stunning pieces that pop in craft fairs, gallery shows, and elegant doghouse foyers across the country.
As a small child, Tim Woosley made a cardboard cutout of a guitar, which he pretend-strummed to songs by The Monkees. By age 13, he upgraded to an actual guitar so that his father could teach him all eight minutes of Led Zeppelin's "Stairway to Heaven." The first lesson was just the first step for this passionate musician, as Tim has played the six-string ever since, from guitarist in local bands to founding instructor of Lincoln School of Music.
Versed in guitar, piano, and voice, Tim and his fellow teachers customize one-on-one lessons around each student's individual goals, from learning basic chords to complex riffs and scales. They also lead group lessons, and invite students to perform a piece of their choosing at twice-yearly, low-pressure recitals.

For 25 years the owners of Brewsky?s Food & Spirits have known that the best way to get friends and family together is to create a vibrant space filled with all the best sporting events on TV, frosty brews, and a menu of comfort foods.

The team also entertains patrons with trivia nights and shows such as dueling pianos or quarreling xylophones at the Haymarket location.
