Frozen treats, milkshakes, and smoothies provide bursts of chilled refreshment to mouths visiting YoGo Station’s self-serve frozen-yogurt bar. A rotating daily lineup of eight sweet flavors appears on YoGo Station’s menu, and self-serve frozen-yogurt machines let customers pour their own cups, customizing their portions to suit diet plans, or match the precisely measured volume of their mouths. While tons of toppings clamor for a spot atop frozen-yogurt mountains, smoothies and milkshakes also jockey for attention. Much like the facial expressions carved onto Mount Rushmore, YoGo’s inspired menu changes weekly.
Val Du Vino Winery resides in a nearly 100-year-ol barn at the west end of Murphys's Main Street. The boughs of ancient oaks shade the property, adding to the winery's bucolic beauty. Its quaint exterior conceals a lovingly restored interior with plenty of modern amenities, such as a recently refurnished tasting room and an impressively equipped kitchen. That kitchen serves as the playground of Jeannine Hebel, co-owner, operator, and resident chef at the winery. Drawing on her training in French cuisine, she makes new menus to suit every event that comes through, from simple tastings to full-blown weddings.
The other half the winery's duties––the winemaking itself––belongs to Jonathon Phillips. Phillips selects his grapes by hand from the crops of local vineyards, producing wine only in small batches because he can only carry so many grapes, probably. He shares these creations with visitors as long as stocks last, though members of the winery's wine club are always first in line to get a taste or buy a bottle.
Along with its mainstay collection of holiday and greeting cards, HLC Hallmark supplies kids and parents with gifts for all occasions. The shop's huge selection of yuletide ornaments dresses up trees better than nesting pigeons wearing tuxes. Other stocking stuffers include customizable storybooks, scented candles, graphic T-shirts, and key chains.
