To restore balance to their clients' body and minds, the team at Parapsychology & Wellness Center draws on many disciplines, including reiki therapy, aura purification, and astrology. Staff members also perform many types of readings. For instance, they might use tarot cards to look 6–12 months into the future, draw on numerology to reveal lucky numbers, or administer a character reading to help clients learn more about themselves, like whether or not they can actually lick their elbow.
It would be hard to imagine a more fitting location for Mamaroneck Beach and Yacht Club. The club takes up residence on a waterfront estate, which was designed by architect Stanford White in 1885. Thirteen acres surround visitors with scenic views of Long Island Sound and docks full of yachts. The historic main house, lush gardens, and a private beach also distinguish the grounds—as do ample outdoor activities.
Lifeguards oversee two pools, and two large fields and nine Har-Tru tennis courts set the stage for sports. Nearby, a shaded outdoor cafe makes an ideal place to eat lunch between games. In the clubhouse, which overlooks Long Island Sound, patrons can sit down for a more formal meal, complete with award-winning cuisine.
Founded in 1974 by three "hippie glassblowers," Bullseye Glass Co produces internationally renowned glass materials in thousands of colors and finishes suitable for artistic endeavors of all kinds, such as mosaics and stained glass. Aside from being beautiful to look at, most of Bullseye's glasses are compatible for fusing and kilnforming—something that's especially important for glass artists to know. Bullseye also passes on the ancient art of glass shaping through artist-guided classes. Graduates of these kilnforming classes can return to craft additional treasures or explore the cyclical nature of art by turning a wineglass back into a sandbox.
The cool blades of skates have cut grooves into the ice at Hommocks Park Ice Rink since 1975. Skaters flock to the indoor rink during public-skate times curving into figure-8s, flying through the air doing axels, and laying down to imitate the most popular hockey mascot, a friendly boulder. Aspiring skaters aged 4 and older brush up on skills during group lessons. Meanwhile, when skaters need time on less slick surfaces, they can refuel with snacks and treats at the Slap Shot Café, which brims with the aromas of pizzas, chicken wings, and nachos.
