When he cofounded his first sandwich shop in 1965, 17-year-old Fred DeLuca planned to use his profits to pay his way through medical school. But the combination of quality ingredients and friendly service at the shop?then called Pete's Subway?proved so popular that nine years later, he and his partner found themselves in charge of 16 locations across Connecticut, and Fred left behind his doctoring plans for a career in business.
Today, Subway restaurants number over 34,000 around the world?almost as many shops as there are sightings of Elvis buying cold cuts. At each location, staffers pile sliced ham, marinara-slathered meatballs, and other fillings into halved loaves of bread before customizing handhelds with tomatoes, shredded lettuce, and other healthy toppings plucked from chilled containers behind the counter. Salads free crisp veggies from bread's overprotective embrace, and crunchy baked chips or apple slices accompany entrees to tables. Subway's website also facilitates health-conscious eating by listing each item's nutrition information and fastest mile time online.
What happens when you mix a background in chemistry with a wine-making heritage and decades of industry experience? You end up with Gary Akrop, a vintner who really knows his stuff. For Gary, wine was once a simple hobby. But it eventually grew into a full-blown passion, leading him to establish Ledge Rock Hill Winery in the Adirondack Mountains in 2011.
There, he mixes scientific wisdom with decades of industry knowhow to produce limited batches of his handcrafted wine. Reds are the winery's specialty, each one made with grapes crushed onsite. And much like magic genies, each one is stored in oak barrels for months and even years at a time. Such precise barrel aging is part of a process that, when combined with quality fruit and expert skills, helps Gary and Ledge Rock produce wines of exceptional character. Whether sweet or dry wines are your favorite, a variety of the winery's best choices is always available for sampling in the warm, woodsy tasting room.
Though major newspapers often get more press for their accolades and awards than smaller publications, The Post-Star has been quietly wracking up wins in various categories since its inception in 1895. The most noteworthy was a Pulitzer Prize for Editorial Writing in 2009, but it was quietly preceded by New York State Associated Press Association's "Newspaper of Distinction" for five years, and praise from MADD, the National Headliners Association, and the American Society of Newspaper Editors. The daily paper keeps New York's Adirondack region fully informed on current events, local happenings, sports scores, and entertainment while boasting the latest technical advances in design, layout, and production, such as delivering the most recent edition telepathically.
The Cooper's Cave Games & Paintball outdoor battlefield sprawls over 40 multicolored acres, giving players ample room to elude an enemy or stage a smattering ambush. After mustering courage at the field's staging area, paintballers can disperse to a number of landscapes to settle a family feud or conduct paint ballistics field research. The western town field simulates the old west with wooden shacks, abandoned carriages, and grizzled prospectors, and the more martial competition fields acquaint one's inner Andrew Jackson with one's inner Jackson Pollock. Paint pelters go au natural in Cooper's wooded playing field, assaulting unsuspecting comrades from behind logs and trees, and sneaky splatterers execute sniper-style hits or gauge enemy positions from the guarded hideouts in Cooper's fort-filled field.
