Since 1999, the staffers of Gourmet RockStars have been helping to throw lavish, unique events of every ilk. From equipment rentals and catering to entire-event management for weddings, birthday parties, and corporate events, the company’s party planners pay careful attention to their clients’ every request. Their chefs can create delicacies such as foie gras and truffle canapés and provision buffets with spit-roasted meats. Clients can spruce up seated banquets with extras such as ice sculptures, champagne fountains, and shot-glass displays. The staff maintains strict client confidentiality, whether they’re organizing a product launch or throwing an awards dinner for a group of secret agents.
Understanding that each child learns differently, the staff members of Sylvan Learning Center’s numerous study centers design custom lesson programs. Based on the results of standardized testing, diagnostic tools, and one-on-one interviews, the staff works with students to help them to firmly grasp basic skills such as reading, writing, math, and how to remember facts without tattooing them to their chest. Programs target students in kindergarten through grade 12 and mold to various learning styles, helping kids to feel more comfortable in the classroom. After-school or summer classes can ready high-school students for the rigors of the ACT or the SAT, or they can help students to wow college admissions officers with their superior writing skills, exemplary test scores, and willingness to arm-wrestle the school mascot.
Since 2006, customers have brought their clothing and home linens to Bay Cleaners to be dry-cleaned or laundered using the shop's environmentally friendly products. The staff uses only plant-based solutions that are free of harmful chemicals and harsh solvents. Despite their gentle nature, the products easily lift away dirt and grime while also infusing fabric with a pleasant scent. Tailors can re-attach buttons, alter the hems of pants, or shorten coat sleeves for people who shrink instead of grow. Shoe shining and heel repairs preserve footwear year after year.
The staff members at Classique Dry Cleaners maintain their customers' clothing with water-free, eco-friendly solutions. Although dry cleaning is their signature service—including care for larger items such as comforters and bed spreads—the technicians also alter, repair, and restore garments such as wedding gowns, shoes, leather, and purple pants that have been recently exposed to gamma-ray-induced rage.
