CineStar Outdoor Movie Company turns backyards and parks into open-air cinemas, supplying high-quality, widescreen movie screens for events ranging from weddings to block parties. The staff does more than just drop off a big screen at each customer's desired location: from the moment a customer calls, they get to work planning the event, setting up the screens—which can be prepped for live feeds playing local sports, UFC matches, or other Pay Per View events—and providing optional accompaniments such as popcorn, glow sticks, and even beanbags or couches. To ensure every event is a success, they help customers with licensing, promoting, and scheduling, and will even talk to neighbors to prep them for the event and gently explain why Movie Godzilla shouldn’t be feared, but Real Godzilla should be.
Behind the brownstone façade of Cheesecake Amor Cafe & Wine Bar—a cozy eatery reminiscent of a quaint café—owners Gayle and Jeff Haynes pair signature gourmet cheesecakes and fine wines with a full menu of elegant Italian-American dishes. The warm café invites diners to curl up on a leather couch beside a flickering fire or slide their knees under polished black tables garnished by a selection of fine cheeses, pizzas, and entrees coupled with suggestions from a list of more than 60 wines. Gayle pours her passion for baking into an assortment of housemade cheesecake slices in 30 flavors, from classic New York style to liqueur and candy flavors.
Embracing a bohemian aesthetic, Zin Zen Wine & Bistro lavishes guests with comfortable sofas and a menu of bright, gourmet cuisine to meander through while relaxing on the patio. From the kitchen, chefs send out pizzas straight off the grill, and rich baked brie wrapped in a flaky pastry puff with an apricot glaze. Throughout the month, Zin Zen also hosts live musicians, whose soulful croons provide sippers with a lively soundtrack to synchronize with their brass cymbal-style toasts.
