Native American-style fry bread controls the spotlight at Niki's Kitchen Fry Bread, sharing the stage with fresh ingredients from beans and cheese to strawberries and chocolate. The bread can be folded around meats and veggies to create tacos and sandwiches—including their take on the philly cheese steak—or dusted with cinnamon and sugar to make a doughy dessert. On Fridays and Saturdays, the family-owned eatery offers a Polynesian plate special, which changes on a weekly basis, much like a very lazy shapeshifter.
The friendly pie purveyors at Mancino's Pizza & Grinders use fresh, natural ingredients to concoct and top their signature doughy discs. Topping the pizza and calzone portion of the menu is the Mancino's Pride, which features a full parade of proteins and veggies including ham, black olives, sausage, green peppers, and mushrooms. Try a mac 'n' cheese, Philly steak, or taco pizza if you're struggling with dueling cravings or accidentally left the house with a mismatched set of bottom and top dentures. Vegetarians can try Mancino's pizza margherita, which smothers hand-tossed dough with extra-virgin olive oil, fresh garlic, sliced tomatoes, buffalo mozzarella, and basil. Mancino's eclectic flavor combinations can be enjoyed in 8" ($5.29–$7.99), 12" ($11.19–$15.99), or 16" ($13.59–$20.99) rounds, or bundled up as personally portioned calzones ($5.29–$7.99).
The knowledgeable staff at Today's Swim & Patio has been equipping backyard havens and poolside decks with a blend of stylish, comfortable, and durable outdoor furniture for more than 20 years. The dark cast aluminum of the Molise swivel club chair cradles bright cushions above its bendable base ($549), allowing people to turn naturally with conversation or comfortably imitate a weathervane, and the matching Molise sofa ($1,149) plushly invites an extended stay in exterior comfort. Prevent lovebirds from awkwardly trying to stand and snuggle by offering them a spot on the Albany love seat ($899), which makes for a more romantic respite when paired with the Albany ottoman ($299). Or trade in sweetheart-appropriate sitting for the sleek silhouette of the Albany spring club chair ($699), whose deep cushions encourage prolonged solo lounging and secure time capsule burial.
The simple fact that Bridges Preschool has branched out to seven locations in a little more than 10 years speaks to the high caliber of its staff. Every teacher holds, or is close to completing, a degree in child development, early childhood education, or another related field. Plus, they must undergo a rigorous three- or four-part interview before they get the job.
But the preschool and kindergarten's rapid expansion must also be due in part to its unique curriculum, a large chunk of which relies on the Adventure Playgrounds at each of its schools. Inspired by learning playgrounds in Europe, each holds slightly different educational fixtures, such as a bird and butterfly habitat or a garden.
