Inside ProtecHockey Ponds Ice Center’s impressive, 52,000-square-foot facility, figure skaters, hockey players, and casual skaters alike glide across three separate ice surfaces—including an NHL regulation-size rink—during lessons, games, and public-skating sessions. Ranging from junior hockey players to New Jersey state figure-skating champions, the team of coaches imparts skills during everything from introductory skating lessons to four-day hockey camps. When the center isn't hosting the public for skate sessions, ProtecHockey Ponds Ice Center is home to the Rutgers University Men's Ice Hockey team, the Protec Ducks Hockey Program, and the nationally recognized Protec Academy Learn-to-Skate Program. Beyond the boards, a full-service café serves lattes for visitors to warm up before watching the center's hockey teams. The rink's staff can also host birthday parties, group outings, and fundraisers in their private room.
Although they prefer to prevent infestations, the technicians at On The Spot Pest Control are trained to rout embedded insects and mammals while minimizing environmental impact. They follow the principles of Integrated Pest Management, a system that relies on catch-and-release animal-control practices when possible and promotes the reduced use of pesticides. Not content to glaze lawns with chemicals and call it a day, the team also creates barriers that change every season. In summer, it targets flying insects and spiders, and come fall it shores up defenses against rodents and back-to-school shoppers.
People planning weddings often have to choose between elaborately staged poses and the dynamic, candid shots that provide a realistic account of the happy day. The founders of Abacus Wedding Studios ignore that dichotomy, believing there to be a place for both photography styles at important events. Mixing traditional and photojournalistic styles, their photo snappers work with brides, grooms, and their families to make sure everyone gets the shots they dream of. Together, they create a custom wedding-day preparation worksheet that lays out shooting plans with plenty of time for large-scale portraits, intimate snaps, and sequential shots of the first cake slice being smashed in the father of the bride's face.

No matter the chosen medium, the studio accommodates both small groups and large parties, and welcomes guests to bring their own refreshments.
