EventZone's Party in the Park summer concert series at Elmwood Park helps Thursday ditch its weekday persona and get loose with food, drinks, fun events, and a different musical headliner every week. On June 16, hips wiggle, toes tap, and fingers form synchronized kick-lines to the southern-rock sounds of Jim Quick & Coastline. The festival's more than 13,000 frolickers can unwind with a Budweiser or glass of Gallo wine ($4 each), or indulge in a guilt-free splurge on festival cuisine and soda, knowing that part of Party in the Park's proceeds go to local nonprofit organizations. With Parrothead Night as the theme of the evening, Jimmy Buffet fans and their exceedingly loyal spouses can feel free to don Hawaiian garb and warm up their margarita hands for the slushy merriment ahead, and Davidson's Clothing for Men takes over the stage at band intermission to give away free T-shirts ideal for hiding malfunctioning coconut bikinis.

What sets your business apart from your competition?
As a professional psychic medium, I tailor your reading specifically to your needs. I sense the truth about the past, present, and future. I also tap into current and near-future situations, as well as the other people in your life. I connect easily to those that have crossed to the other side. Often, I sketch as part of your reading to illustrate the symbols, energies, people, guides, and colors that I pick up in your auric field.
What was the inspiration for starting this business?
In 2010, I attended the Arthur Findlay College of Psychic Science in England, which is known as the world's premier college of mediumship. While there, three world-class mediums suggested I begin doing private readings and teaching psychic development. Until then, I'd never considered my natural gift as something other people would be interested in. It is now my utmost pleasure to offer readings and see the lives of my clients transformed.
Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?
I happily offer private readings by appointment only.
What is the best reaction you?ve ever gotten from a customer?
Enthusiastic repeat and referral business.
What?s your favorite part about your job?
Seeing fear and worry disappear from the faces of my clients as their confidence and peace is restored.
Following the baton of music director and conductor David Stewart Wiley, the members of Roanoke Symphony Orchestra and its chorus deliver concerts that cover a wide spectrum of genres, regaling ears with everything from sci-fi soundtracks to masterpieces by classical composers. Roanoke Symphony Orchestra also surprises audiences with visits from renowned performers by the likes of singer-songwriter LeAnn Rimes and triple-threat Bernadette Peters. Before masterwork concerts, Wiley stages preconcert talks that give audiences musical insight on the pieces that will be performed. To complement its programming, the RSO records a podcast called Inside the Music, which broadcasts playlists off Beethoven’s first generation iPod.
Physicians Weight Loss Centers' board-certified physician, licensed nurse, and staff counselors work together to provide six different medically supervised weight-loss programs that focus on the physical, psychological, and behavioral impacts of losing weight, including two low-calorie diets, a high-protein meal-replacement program, and three low-fat plans. During body-composition analyses, tummy-trimming experts measure clients' body fat and lean muscle, assessing potential health risks and formulating a toning strategy. Licensed dietitians then match patients with a weight-loss program individually tailored to banish inches without potentially harmful drugs, stimulants, or restrictive corsets. During each four-week regimen, participants savor health-conscious comestibles, receive weekly weigh-ins, and garner support from motivational counselors.
After three decades of holistic-therapy research, Brenda “Bebe” Ball founded Rejuvenation Station to share her belief in a natural path to wellness. The center’s noninvasive treatments range from infrared body wraps, which fight cellulite and burn calories while also improving skin, to ion detox footbaths, which draw out toxins and boost energy. Bebe has also brought Japanese technologies to Rejuvenation Station in the form of an electro reflex energizer, which stimulates acupressure points, and an e-power machine, whose high-frequency energy works to accelerate healing and aid mental focus.

Beyond mattresses, the warehouse also carries an ample collection of box springs, full bed sets with rails and headboards, and even premium futon mattresses that revitalize foldable couches.
