When Prem and Cheridy Mukherjee got married in 2001, they didn't know anything about creative wedding photography. Prem's interest in taking photos had been piqued during his travels in Sydney, Australia, but it wasn't until after he had met and married Cheridy that his interest flourished into a real talent. Cheridy soon picked up the camera herself, and together the husband-and-wife team became Arising Images, expertly capturing shots for weddings, engagement announcements, and family-portrait sessions. In 2009, with more experience under their belts, the couple wanted another shot at their wedding album. They once again donned white attire, along with a colorful pair of sneakers, and posed for artistic, playful shots that truly captured their joy—something they strive for in their own photography sessions.
Prem, who has shared his expertise at national conventions, passes along his camera-friendly knowledge to budding photographers during starter and intermediate classes. He spends the sessions educating students on the functions of their own cameras and the fundamentals of editing images with Photoshop Elements, eschewing the traditional method of going over photos with a ballpoint pen and masking tape. Private lessons shower all the attention upon one participant, while a tag-along on a photo shoot or wedding allows students to view Prem and Cheridy in their professional environment.
Though her business may be focused on detaching hairs, licensed esthetician Tiffany Taylor offers anything but detached service. Instead, she champions an "anti-spa" approach, cultivating a warmer, more relaxed atmosphere than what's found in many conventional beauty venues. At ME Beauty, she and her staff chat breezily with clients, refer to their treatments by witty names—for example, a chin wax is a "chinchilla"—and wear regular clothing instead of the overly official uniforms or hazmat suits a lot of other spas require.
Although their attitudes may be casual, their dedication to their craft is anything but. They specialize exclusively in waxing for men and women, boasting rigorous training in the art of swift hair-removal. As a result, they can remove unwanted strands from most any body part between the toes and brows, such as the arms, chest, and bikini areas. They utilize a brand of professional wax sold out of Australia, and never double-dip during appointments. For sensitive zones, clients can purchase Dr. Edna's Bare Ease Cream right at the salon to apply to themselves prior to treatments, which can help lessen the treatment's sting.
If the owners of Dessert Oasis Coffee were stranded on a desert island with access to three worldly items, they’d choose a live band, a mountain of chocolate, and their trusty 3-kilo bean roaster. Lined with plush seating and a crackling fireplace, their downtown Rochester shop is cozier than a sun-scorched sandbar or a mattress made of inflated blowfish. Inside, the scents of cream and chocolate melt together as chefs bake fresh desserts and baristas craft more than 300 gourmet coffee drinks. Sourced from exotic locales such as Costa Rica and Papua New Guinea, small batches of coffee beans bask in a US Roaster Corp roasting machine before percolating in the café’s brewer. Throughout the day, groups gather in the fireside reading room to share pots of cheese fondue and slices of house-made cheesecake, which come in flavors such as pumpkin, key lime, and turtle. Musicians filter into the café at night, peppering its soundtrack of fork clinks and steamer whistles with their sweet stylings.

Before rounds, guests can stock their bags with cold drinks, snacks, and course necessities such as tees, balls, and dueling gloves at the course pro shop.

Winner of Oakland Press Best of the Best awards for 2011, 2012, and 2013, Bangkok Cuisine excites diners' palates with the exotic flavors of authentic Thai cooking. Gracious servers present plates prepared by master chefs, one of whom schooled newscasters about noodles on Fox 2 Cooking School. Exotic and nutritious ingredients indigenous to Southeast Asia mingle in each carefully prepared recipe, which have been refined over Bangkok Cuisine's more than 30 years in business. Snow peas, shrimp, napa cabbage, and scallops snap sizzling drumrolls in woks over the stove. Catfish fillets marinate before chefs cover them in breading and garlic sauce, and shrimp, scallops, and squid evoke Thailand?s palm-tree-sprinkled coast. Chefs tailor each dish?s spiciness to individual palates, delighting daring diners with Thai peppers hotter than a fully-suited astronaut in a sauna. Fusion dishes include Chinese staples such as sweet-and-sour sauce.
