A beaming, tutu-clad youngster poses by a large number 2, commemorating her new age. A couple, nearly newlywed, strolls through a sepia-tinged park holding hands. A brindled puppy with floppy ears capers across a red wooden wagon. These are just a few of the shots that the photographers at Worth A 1000 Words Studio have captured during their tenure at the memory emporium. Both in-studio and on-location shoots cover the gamut of photogenic opportunities, from senior portraits to weddings to adorable pictures of babies disguised as bunnies or even smaller babies.
Serving savory subs since 1956, the friendly bread bookenders at Jersey Mike’s employ fresh ingredients to gift diners with an extensive menu of handheld eats assembled directly before eager mouths. Sink your ivories into cold subs such as the Jersey Shore's Favorite, where generous slices of provolone, ham, and cappacuolo arrive layered with onions, lettuce, tomatoes, vinegar, and a sprinkling of oil and spices ($4.29–$8.95, depending on size). Chilly diners dissatisfied with standard whole-wheat sleeping bags can warm up next to hot subs such as the Big Kahuna Cheese Steak ($6.95/reg, $10.75/giant) or the chicken parm's infusion of melted provolone, tomato sauce, and parmesan ($6.25/reg, $9.75/giant). Diners seeking munchables as light as a CGI feather can sample the fresh-tossed salad ($3.99) or tuna salad ($6.25). The friendly sandwich sculptors will also happily customize any 'wich to your whims, offering a host of vegetarian options or the utensil-friendly Sub in a Tub, which mixes the ingredients in a bowl sans bread.
From 1944 onward, Paul Golden greeted each of his customers by name as they walked through the door, presenting their freshly pressed suits and dresses ensconced in crinkly cellophane wrappers. His personable touch lives on four generations later as the Golden family oversees an array of dry-cleaning services at Hygienic Golden Touch Cleaners' Topeka and Lawrence facilities. Continuously filtered solvent expunges stains from garments following a meticulous inspection, during which staffers eradicate the mud spots, replace the splintered buttons, and re-stitch the loose seams that so often result from refereeing amateur yeti MMA tournaments. Staffers also spruce up leather, fur, suede, antique clothing, and other delicate textiles, and shine and repair shopworn shoes. Hygienic Golden Touch picks up and drops off ensembles free of charge, and recycles its garment bags and wire hangers.

The new two-story tree house that sits amid Kansas Children’s Discovery Center’s 4.5 acres of greenery is more than a house—children can also swoop down its slide or scale its climbing wall. The multifaceted structure reflects the center’s overall complexity. On its outdoor grounds’ network of bike trails, hiking paths, and obstacle courses, youngsters can cultivate their love of nature without going off to live with a family of wolverines; meanwhile, 10 hands-on, educational exhibits in the 15,000-square-foot indoor facility fuel youthful curiosity in everything from construction projects to an interactive lemonade stand that teaches kids the basics of balancing a budget.
