Any media that is stored in an analog format is vulnerable to the ravages of time, which holds no mercy for VHS ribbons and wheels of slides. The technicians at Transfer Me to DVD specialize in storing and restoring such items, etching important memories upon stable disks and unassailable computer drives. Video tapes, film reels, and audio cassettes can all be digitized, with the knowledgeable staff performing edits to remove blank footage and legally disowned family members. The team produces eye-catching slide shows from collections of family pictures and can even restore time-worn photographs to their former clarity.
The Toledo Symphony is entering its 67th season of brilliant brain tickling (via the ear), with expectations to reach nearly 300,000 listeners over the course of 400 diverse performances. The permanent orchestra consists of approximately 80 professional musicians, though extra musicians are regularly enlisted to garnish the sound and retrieve coffee during extremely long rests with bolded fermatas.
For the first time, the Toledo Music Expo transfigures the Erie Street Market into a platform for local musicians, recording engineers, and videographers to strut their stuff and network with other talented individuals. Performances by 19 local musicians lay out the event's sultry soundtrack, filling the air with rhythms to dance, sing, or mime along to. Songstress Abby Ray sets feet-fingers tapping with her eclectic brand of tunes, while air particles vibrate to the lyrical flow of resident wordsmith C-Fifth. Strolling among the vendors' booths, music lovers can sample sumptuous snacks from The Oasis Restaurant and Delivery or fill stomachs and fanny-packs with sushi rolls from Spicy Tuna.
Certified instructor Nicole Losie-Rife shares her passion for yoga practice through healing Hatha classes suitable for yogis of all levels. Novices can master the basics in the 75-minute gentle class, where they practice foundational poses and guided breathing exercises, which can develop stamina, endurance, and bestow A students with Sting-like powers of endurance. Students of all levels can escape the workday cube during 50-minute lunchtime classes that explore standing poses, sun salutations, and balancing sequences. Well-decorated yoga warriors can sweat through 90-minute Vinyasa flows, which focuses on core work, hip openers, and backbends to help students build strength, as well as inversions and arm balances to help impress guests at dinner parties. Each session at Presence culminates with a thorough cooldown and a period of deep relaxation called savasana. Nicole can provide students with modifications and props to ease injuries, accommodate physical limitations, and support students if their joints and muscles feel more Tin Man than unstuffed Scarecrow.
Eagle Crest Golf Club’s 18-hole course meanders across 6,735 yards of tree-lined terrain as it protrudes into the cerulean waters of Ford Lake. Players can groom their golf game before hitting the links with a regimen of 10 one-hour clinics, where Eagle Crest’s resident aces demystify the golf swing for small classes with their profound knowledge of golf mechanics and subtle use of spinning argyle hypnosis. Swing-honing sessions will pay dividends on the course, where towering trees pepper the landscape and intervening waterways come into play on 11 holes. The grassy monolith conjures all of its orb-impeding majesty on the hardest-rated fifth hole, a 555-yard par 5 with water stationed both right in front of the tee box and lining the entire right side of the fairway, which demands a one-stroke penalty or impeccable swan dive to impress resident Merpeople. Rounds can be redeemed anytime Monday–Friday and after 11 a.m. on weekends and holidays. Players may call up to a week in advance to schedule a tee time or walk in for the next available tee time.
Oasis Hot Tub Gardens instantly transports visitors on mini vacations to other parts of the globe. Each private area?some indoor and some outdoor?takes on a theme of an exotic oasis, from the Isle Royale to a beautiful garden in Japan to the wild hot tubs that grow in the world's secluded forests. Those all become the backdrops for hours of relaxation within hot waters, which stay at a comfortable 102 degrees during the Fall and Winter and 96?100 degrees in Spring and Summer. Should customers need anything, say a change in tub temperature, all they need to do is make a request over the room's intercom?never having to leave their tiny slice of paradise. The private suites house other comforts too, namely stereos, dressing areas, and showers.
