After 40 years of enchanting families and youngsters at its original location, Treasure Island Fun Center relocated its abundant arcade games and tasty treats to a recently renovated 16,000-square-foot facility in 2007. Kiddie rides and games occupy toddlers, and older kids and adults compete in billiards and air-hockey bouts or zip through virtual tracks in racing games. Rekindle flames with classic arcade fixtures such as pinball, Centipede, and Ms. Pac-Man, or vie for tickets by playing skeeball or haggling virtual-reality scalpers. Once accumulated, those tickets can be traded for one of the arcade’s many prizes such as toys, lava lamps, and digital cameras.
With pizza by the slice, chicken nuggets, and ice cream, the full-service snack bar known as Pegleg’s Pizza refuels guests between games. Through its charity, the Bob and Jean Noell Charitable Foundation, Treasure Island Fun Center also reenergizes the community, having donated more than $125,000 to schools and youth organizations thus far.
From outposts fashioned inside three different locations, Charlie's Pro Shop at Liberty Lanes upgrades the games of beginner bowlers and seasoned veterans alike. The shops cover their walls with a colorful array of balls, bags, shoes, and accessories–everything necessary to improve scores on the lanes or convince strangers you're a famous bowler named Strikes MacKenzie. Children's equipment readies pint-size pin crushers for battle, and custom drilling ensures digits of all shapes jive comfortably with their finger holes.
An enlargement is an ideal gift for a wedding, anniversary, or any celebration for which the memory is that much clearer in football-field size. Blow up your fantastic driver's license photo to an 8 x 11 for $57 or get the secret microfilm anti-shrunk to a much more manageable 11 x 11 for $72. You can swell photos to a maximum of 50 x 60 in order to wave down rescue helicopters with those amazing before-and-after weight-loss snapshots. You can also order custom sizes; prices vary.

In the 1970s, Dr. W. L. Asher and Dr. Harold Harper tested the effects of hCG, a hormone theorized to assist in the treatment of obesity. By the end of their double-blind study, the researchers discovered that the hormone doesn?t magically eliminate fat. Instead, it suppresses appetite and enhances overall feelings of well-being, thus resulting in greater weight-loss success. At Physicians Center for Weight Loss & Age Management, Dr. Agnes Green follows her predecessors, calling upon hCG injections and several other medical miracles to lead clients to healthier, more fulfilling lives.
Dr. Green and her staff offer two programs for weight loss: hCG injections and a comprehensive program. Both physician-monitored programs include bloodwork, weekly visits, nutritional counseling, and food journaling, but the latter trades hCG injections for other medical injections such as B12 and amino acids. For clients feeling and looking older, Dr. Green prescribes bioidentical hormone-replacement therapy to replenish hormones lost with age and refuel the lust for life experienced by young people and Jeopardy! winners. The intravenous Myers? cocktail treatment, meanwhile, replenishes essential nutrients not obtained in the typical diet for the sake of eliminating chronic fatigue, depression, and even dementia. Beyond injections, Physicians Center offers custom anti-aging skin creams, pharmaceutical-grade multivitamins, and other health-enhancing services.
