At weddings, bar mitzvahs, company events, festivals, birthdays and school dances throughout Inland Empire, WhatTheFun?! PhotoBooth helps to create long-lasting memories. As the camera chatters away throughout the night, patrons may change in and out of various costumes, props, and disguises like a secret agent pretending not to be eating lunch with his mom. High-resolution photos are printed onsite and personalized with captions and graphics for each event.
After studying the art of Vietnamese cooking in her mother's kitchen in Honolulu, Mandoline Grill's owner and grillologist Mong Skillman takes her menu of native gourmet dishes on the road to serve the greater Los Angeles area, including Orange County, Echo Park, and Santa Monica. Like bowls full of Halloween candy, all dishes can be flavored with a delectable protein—such as pork, beef, barbecue chicken, and tofu—and are completely free of MSG. Tacos served on corn tortillas ($6, or $7 for beef) pair well with a Vietnamese iced coffee ($2.50), and the Hawaiian barbecue bánh mì ($6) slides in on a 12-inch french baguette with cucumber slices, pickled carrots, cilantro, and jalapeños. The Vietnamese nachos ($5), meanwhile, choreograph an elaborate musical number of mint, scallion, synchronized swimmers, and jalapeños atop crispy corn-tortilla chips. Vegans can grab the back hips of their coworker conga line and order rice vermicelli noodles ($6, or $7 for beef), which come chaperoned by crushed peanuts, shallots, cucumbers, and mixed greens.
Andre and his girlfriend were renting a house in Palm Springs for the weekend, and he had a secret plan. After returning from an afternoon massage, his girlfriend found a photo booth waiting inside the doorway. The couple entered the booth, and Andre asked his girlfriend the most important question of his life: "Will you marry me?". She answered yes, the camera flashed, and the photo booth preserved the fleeting moment. This is just one of the special moments Sterling Photo Booth has documented. Equipped with high-resolution Canon cameras and HD touch-screen monitors, their photo booths capture smiling faces and funny poses at weddings and birthdays.
Owners Mark and Marlene Lizada know that each of these events is a unique experience; their staff works one-on-one with clients to design custom booth enclosures and photo strips. Overlaid texts and graphics help commemorate events such as "Mom's Birthday" or "The Grandfather Clock's 1,000th Chime."
Oodles kids' gym and learning center aims to help students of any age improve their physical or scholastic abilities in a fun, structured environment. Youngsters new to standing on their own two feet can fine-tune their gross motor skills in gym classes that combine games, songs, swings, and rides to induce smiles and confident movements. Older students in need of scholastic aid pair up with an Oodles tutor to tackle challenging homework assignments or arts-and-crafts projects. The learning center's curriculum also includes other brain-boosting classes, such as Korean languages, Bollywood dance, SAT study groups, and art-academy sessions. Classes run no longer than 45 minutes, which is long enough to help students grasp the day's lessons without reaching the limit of their attention span or jello-powered battery pack.
