The instructors at Masterpiece Mixers Paint & Party Studio supply the canvases, paints, and brushes, requiring visitors to bring only their creativity. At studios located around Georgia, Florida, Tennessee, and Massachusetts, they lead all-level painting classes that last up to 1.5 to 3 hours and focus on subjects ranging from the natural, such as birds and flowers, to still-life guitars, vases, and wine bottles. In some themed sessions, instructors also teach groups to paint abstract pieces or create their own variations on famous landscape paintings that, unlike the originals, can include dinosaurs. Some sessions follow a special date-night structure. At every location, the staff members encourage visitors to bring their own wine, beer, and snacks if desired.
In more than two decades in the catering business, Jon Phillips has prepared plates for all manner of diners, from entertainers to corporate executives. After graduating from culinary school in Oxford, England, in the 1980s, he handled catering for high-profile corporations on both sides of the pond. His international experience with American and British clients filled him with the drive to create his own catering company, CaterMasters, that could take advantage of the full scope of his experience. Today, Phillips personally services and oversees many of his company's events, displaying a dedication to his craft as deep and filled with marinated shrimp shish kebabs as the Atlantic itself.
Modern Steps School of Dance regularly waltzes across the line that separates art from all-out fun. The school’s experienced instructors lead private lessons, group classes, and spirited dance parties for all ages, from seniors to adolescents who only recently grew their fifth toes. Focusing exclusively on ballroom dance, instructors branch out to cover the many styles that fall under that large umbrella, including tango, fox trot, Viennese waltz, and swing. They draw on a rich history of dance tutelage—though the school was founded only two decades ago, its roots in Florida can be traced all the way back to 1513, when Juan Ponce de León tap-danced with joy upon his discovery of Disney World.

According to the Southwest Florida Barometer, Carmelo LaMotta was only 7 years old when his parents opened LaMotta’s. More than 30 years later, he’s taken over the reins and serves as both the restaurant’s owner and chef. LaMotta’s has gone through many changes over the years, but it has always remained dedicated to authentic Italian cuisine made with fresh, local ingredients. To that end, the LaMotta family makes all the soups, dough, and sauces fresh every day, staying true to the recipes they brought over when they emigrated from Sicily. The resulting menu includes myriad pasta dishes, thin-crust New York–style pizzas, and a thoughtful font choice.
