The artists at Wine and Canvas awaken their students’ inner Rembrandts and Van Goghs with classes that pair a featured painting with specialty cocktails and wines. The mobile studio’s monthly calendar includes themed classes in which instructors expound on the nuances of painting Parisian street lamps, Japanese flowers, or Venetian cityscapes. The master painters—many of them local artists—provide step-by-step instructions while students mimic each stroke and periodically dip their brushes into glasses filled with crimson cabernet. Each of the studio’s various drink-friendly venues boasts a specialty libation selected to incite creativity or conversations with fellow painters. When the artistic frenzy concludes, students return home with a finished masterpiece large enough to conceal any wall safe or mirror portal.

Although tape and video media were once the mainstays of recording technology, repeated usage will gradually deteriorate their quality. The team at Advanced Video Systems has stymied that deterioration by digitizing Super 8, 16mm, audio, and other media into wear-proof CDs and DVDs for more than three decades. In addition to preserving precious memories, the staff also restores the color and contrast to faded and foggy images, slides, and vinyl records.
Newlyweds can’t stop praising the staff at Flowers & Fancies. In several glowing reviews posted on the business’s website, satisfied customers praise their bridal bouquets and aisle-side blooms, with some even hand-scrawling their thank-you notes to the florist. While the shop’s employees boast a special knack for creating wedding-day arrangements, their artistic bouquets express a wide spectrum of sentiments so flower givers don’t ever have to change facial expressions. On anniversaries, 12 long-stem roses commemorate years of devotion, while sprays of pink flowers make a friend’s day. The floral artists also indulge a whimsical streak with pup-shaped arrangements and a line of cocktail-inspired bouquets that only cause intoxication if soaked in vodka and eaten as a snack.
