The one-stop shop even features a home-brewing area complete with a diverse assortment of hops, malted grains, yeasts, malt extracts, and the various beer grapes and equipment that dedicated enthusiasts need to make their own fermented elixir at home.
It’s rare to get exactly what you want in life, but Aunt B’s Yogurt Bar is one sweet exception. “Everybody loves it, people from three to 103,” explained Aunt B's owner, Bobbie Loeb, to the North Salem Daily Voice. “They all want to do it themselves.” By “do it themselves,” she means choosing from a roster of frozen-yogurt flavors—examples include angel food cake and York chocolate peppermint—and decorating the cold treat with more than 40 toppings, such as fresh fruit, pistachios, or caramel Ghirardelli syrup. At a DIY waffle station, patrons can prepare fresh, hot waffles to douse with the creamy dessert. Despite its decadent texture, yogurt has health benefits; each flavor delivers live, active cultures that promote healthy digestion and reduce excess midi-chlorian counts.
Raymond A. Kolkmann founded Raymond Opticians in 1959, prior to the advent of advanced lens technology, and consequently perfected his ability to pair patients with their optimal prescriptions. He later passed this skill to his three sons, who, in turn, imparted the art of optometry to their own sons through careful instruction and basic osmosis. Today, Raymond Opticians' third generation of ocular outfitters benefits from not only the techniques and standards developed by Raymond Sr., but also from modern lens technology, such as Varilux lenses that help correct vision problems and Transitions, which darken when outside. After examining and diagnosing each patient's eye issues, the doctors help them select from a vast array of designer frames and sunglasses by Oakley, Prada, and Versace.
