Master falconer and bird-of-prey expert Mike Dupuy shares his love of the 4,000-year-old sport of falconry during exciting and informative demonstrations with his avian costars. A professional public speaker, Mike entertains his audiences with personal anecdotes and motivational speeches that use falconry as a metaphor to encourage them to follow their dreams. Guests also get to learn about each feathered raptor while it surveys the crowd for wild Energizer bunnies, and Mike encourages audience interaction by inviting volunteers from the audience to hold the hawk and try in vain to teach it to bark like a dog.
Arts Are For All Ages' aim is to bring classical music to people with restricted mobility and to help young musicians find outlets for their art. More than 28 young musicians performed for six senior communities during the inaugural season in 2009. Now, young musicians bring a variety of musical instruments and give live classical concerts on a regular basis for elderly neighbors who otherwise could not attend arts events.
At Metropolitan Med Spa, beams from FDA-approved Candela laser systems GentleLASE and the GentleYAG lasers roam over physiques, leaving smooth, youthful skin in their wake. Specialized in non-invasive laser hair removal, the center's technicians can also wield their non-invasive beams during skin resurfacing, which erases minor skin imperfections such as fine lines and tiny extra ears. During all their laser treatments, light penetrates the skin before transforming into highly targeted heat, which causes minimal discomfort thanks to Candela's Dynamic Cooling Device. Visitors can also opt for the non-laser beautifying of the spa's facials, which can firm skin, lighten dark spots, and create a youthful glow.
An old-fashioned ambiance reigns in The Carlyle Club, expressed in an art-deco design scheme, frequent visits from respected jazz musicians, and guests’ predilections for saying “horse feathers.” Tall palm fronds back cushy leather booths and elegant marble tables loiter near the bar, all within sight of the intimate, blue-curtained stage. A bow-tied wait staff completes the back-in-time vibe, as do vintage posters and the intricately patterned wallpaper.
