The cheery ring of ice against glass sings out from Minnesota School of Bartending's 30 fully stocked bar stations, behind which instructors draw on experience accumulated since the academy's inception in 1968 to forge cocktail virtuosos. At a long, gleaming bar, one-on-one training provides 18-and-older students with the skills they need to artfully craft and concoct the latest drinks, cocktails, and shooter drinks and listen to the woes of world-weary rodeo clowns. The bartending training also incorporates pointers about customer service, information about liquors and wines, and how to take multiple drink orders. Graduates returning for complimentary refresher courses or lifetime job-placement assistance fill the hall with revelry, and burgeoning elixir crafters wander in according to a flexible calendar designed for college students, part-time workers, and on-call lion tamers. Watering holes and private parties brim with festivity as newly knowledgeable pint fillers go out into the world to flaunt credentials and top off glasses.
For more than 30 years, dedicated staffers at All Seasons Cleaners' four locations have cleansed garments with green processes such as wet cleaning, which yields a 100% biodegradable discharge. At this Certified Environmental Dry Cleaner, the diligent workers ready threads for same-day store pickup, or retrieve clothes from homes with their twice-weekly deliveries.
The cleaning extends to laundry services, washing towels, clothes, and household fabrics such as quilts and drapery with environmentally friendly detergents. At the Crystal store's laundromat, washers and dryers handle up to 60 and 80 pounds respectively, and a soap machine doles out soap, bleach, dryer sheets, and rubber duckies to calm down nervous pants. The cleaning pros also tend to specialty items such as costumes, leathers, and wedding gowns, keeping delicate garments safe with hand-cleaning, hand-pressing, and acid-free products.
Though it advertises itself as the largest no-kill shelter in the Twin Cities, Animal Ark’s homey facility seems more like a relaxing retreat for the more than 1,000 homeless cats, dogs, and rabbits that come through its doors each year. Cats bask in sunlight within feline apartments as dogs lounge atop soft raised beds in their own spacious kennels, sinking teeth into chew toys and treats. Of course, time at Animal Ark isn't all leisure. Canines awaiting their forever homes stretch their legs across a large outdoor play yard, aptly named the Ark Park, where ample trees and greenery mix with park benches where dogs can train their human friends to sit.
Potential owners can also get to know adoptable pets online. The website posts a first-person profile of each available animal that lists its breed, personality, and master’s degrees.
