Bryan Gatley, the co-owner of Fore Seasons Mini Golf and Holy Cow Ice Cream, sometimes personally scoops ice cream or frozen yogurt at the storefront counter. He chats with patrons or throws one scoop over his shoulder for good luck as he dispenses cool treats from nearby Bliss Bros. Dairy. For more than eight decades, craftsmen at the farm have mixed pure cane sugar with natural vanilla extracts to forge cool swirls for filling cups and cones. At Fore Seasons, happy shouts fueled by the sweets drift from the indoor mini-golf course and a vintage arcade with 35 different games. The building started out as a nightclub, and the course still retains some flair from its former life; black lights buzz overhead and glow-in-the-dark strips line putting greens and holes. A whimsical ornament embellishes each hole, from a traffic light that radiates caution to a lighthouse that guides golfers back to the tee like the weeping of a lost caddy.

It all starts with a blank 16"x20" canvas. From there, a group of friends grabs hold of brushes and paints?all supplied by Paint 2gether?and starts to create. Laughter fills the painting party, and at its end everyone walks a way with their very own painting, the subject of which changes depending on the particular session. Aside from these sort of painting parties, Paint 2gether's talented staff also teaches art classes for kids and adults, which focus on subjects like painting with acrylics or drawing with copic markers.
