A Stitcher's Haven is a full-service needlework shop that provides tutelage in knitting and crocheting, with individual lessons devoted to specific methods. Thread artists lead knitting 101 courses through foundational rubric, demonstrating how to begin projects with methods for casting on, learning the knit stitch, and duct-taping over accidental holes. During a subsequent knitting session, classes progress to additional techniques such as purling and binding off.
It's hard to imagine that there's a libation out there that Crown doesn't carry. With a selection that spans vineyards, distilleries, and breweries from around the world, the bottles lining each location come from both small, artisan makers and those universally famed for their grapes or techniques. Home mixologists can cull inspiration for cocktails from a selection of top-shelf-brand mixers or pair their tipple of choice with gourmet snacks, from bush-pepper macadamia nuts to dirty martini party dip. But tastings may be the most distinctive thing about Crown Wine & Spirits. Whether customers stop in to try each location's daily offerings of wine or spirits—or for special tastings that cover dozens of wines, bourbons or beers—Crown's staff makes it easy to find a new favorite or to make up to your tongue for forgetting so many of its birthdays.
