Founded 106 years ago just after the invention of clothing, Sam Meyers Dry Cleaning and Laundry cleans clothing to rid garments of ground-in grime. Detail-oriented dry cleaners strike out stubborn stains from skirts ($7.80) and sweaters ($7.41) with the diligence of a lab chemist and the gentle touch of a newborn porpoise swaddled in cashmere. Use today's deal to look dapper in spotless sport coats ($7.41) and spick-and-span two-piece suits ($13.57). Sam Meyers also offers cleaning services for Uggs and other winter boots to erase evidence of slush-puddle jumping and winter salt-ball fights.
The expert photographers at Louisville Model Shots bring their love for the frozen image with a variety of services. They snap shots of models, actors, and families in their 2,000-square-foot studio during photo shoots or let guests take the photos themselves at events with photo booths. To help truly extend their passion to others, they offer photography classes to students of all experience levels and to red-light cameras whose evidence keeps getting discarded at trial.
Sarah Cattan likes to follow her photography clients from life-changing moment to moment. By building a rapport with her returning subjects, she can expertly frame the romance between engaged couples, the festivities at a wedding, and the joyful progressions of parenthood. Her sense of ease around newborns allows her to nab cherished keepsake shots, and her affinity for outdoor locales—particularly the beach—means that prints often contain real gulls instead of flying m-shapes drawn in during postproduction.
For more than 60 years, KingFish Restaurants have been grilling, broiling, and frying a bounty of sea-dwelling edibles. Lobster tails, tilapia fillets, and freshly shucked oysters punctuate a menu of more than 25 seafood selections that adorn plates breaded in a golden crust or blackened in Cajun seasonings. More terrestrial morsels arrive in the form of fried frog legs and 10-ounce rib-eye steaks, which are grilled to order and taught to swim before arriving to tables.
The flavors aren't the only things inspired by the majesty of the water, though; two of the restaurant's locations are perched directly on the banks of the Ohio River. Diners can gaze through expansive windows or breathe fresh air on a covered patio as they savor their meals amid sparkling waters framed by the Louisville skyline. The understated sound of rushing water is periodically interrupted on select nights, when live bands entertain dinner guests and provide a soundtrack for the underwater ecosystem's endless Disney auditions.
