The techs at all Victoria's Nails and Spa locations have one thing in common: they pride themselves on running clean shops where clients can come to get their paws pampered. Techs do their best work at the foot of comfortable pedicure chairs, where they apply polish to toes to make them more attractive and less likely to be mistaken for weird bugs and stepped on.
Across five full days of action, kids young and semi-young will undergo a comprehensive camp curriculum chock-full of running, throwing, catching, blocking, teamworking, confidence building, high-fiving, and more. If desired, campers ages 11–14 with at least one year of tackle football experience may enroll in the accelerated-skills sections, which feature advanced lessons in the same non-contact environment. All campers are led by professional educators from the high-school and collegiate level, and each day's knowledge bowl soars even higher with visits from Eagles greats, ranging from Fred Barnett to the great Pete Retzlaff (Philadelphia Eagles players vary by camp location). By teaming up with experienced players and coaches, kids will be treated to comprehensive instruction that goes beyond purely mechanical skills.

Sofia Karakasidou drew on recipes from her childhood in Thessaloniki to open her Zagat-rated restaurant Kuzina by Sofia. Her second venture, Kuzina Express, brings a more casual take on fresh Mediterranean cuisine to the Moorestown Mall food court. Karakasidou imports many traditional menu items, such as moussaka and housemade dolmades, from her flagship restaurant. But she gives other classics modern twists, stuffing pita burgers with spicy bifteki patties and crowning flatbread pizzas with gyro meat, crumbled feta, and tzatziki sauce. She cooks with fresh, local ingredients when possible, preparing for the winter by freezing enough farmers to provide fresh produce until spring.
Homemade pastas, hand-formed gnocchi, and meatballs made from a savory blend of beef, veal, and pork proudly showcase Thomas' Ristorante's dedication to Italian culinary traditions. However, the menu also features a handful of dishes that draw more inspiration from the sea in general than the Mediterranean in particular. This is evident in dishes such as the almond-crusted salmon with citrus glaze as well as the crab cakes with homemade cocktail and mustard sauces. The unifying factor amongst all the dishes is the chefs' reliance on locally sourced ingredients whenever possible.
Gleaming wooden floorboards and exposed brickwork lend a cozy vibe to the space, making it an inviting spot for people watching out the large front windows. Although the white linen-covered tables are set with crystalline wine glasses entire bunches of chardonnay grapes, Thomas' Ristorante doesn't serve any wines. Instead, the BYOB eatery encourages diners to bring one of their favorite bottles from home.
