Since 1988, Pet Supplies Plus has welcomed millions of furry critters of every stripe—from llamas and monkeys to potbellied pigs—into their animal-friendly stores. The shop is designed so that both pets and their owners can easily navigate the inventory of more than 10,000 items. Wide aisles give leashed pups enough room to roam, colorful signage keeps shoppers moving in the right direction, and low shelves allow dogs to sniff out their preferred brand of rawhide chew. A self-serve dog wash enables guests to scrub their canine companions' coats to a youthful, puppy-like shine, whereas grooming services enlist professionals to tackle tougher jobs, such as brushing out matted fur or convincing dalmatians to stop mixing white and black after Labor Day.

Upgrades are available for an additional fee, and tech-confident clients can schedule an appointment simply by sending a text to a Stephen Cavicchi stylist.
At Blazed & Bedazzled, customers paint their own pottery, choosing from a menagerie of prepotted ceramics to colorfully adorn. Wielding a brush at the translucent glass tabletops, guests can decorate a jumbo mug ($16) or a business-card holder ($15) with a fancily plated name or pictures of fax machines. A personalized switch-plate cover ($17) basks rooms in a one-of-a-kind glow. Gussy up a curvy bowl ($13) and apply a grimacing self-portrait to a cupcake box ($22) to keep desserts safe from the sticky fingers of pastry thieves. A piggy bank ($13) makes an attractive shell for artistic expression, in which the painter may stow away pennies or a recursive series of increasingly tiny pigs. A friendly staff is always on paint-flecked hand to guide customers and demonstrate effective painting techniques.
While prices vary depending on finishing quality, customers can display wild-captured moments for as little as $0.25 for a 4''x6'' print. Professionally processed photos and portraits come emblazoned on Kodak Endura Luster paper, starting at $0.45 cents per 4''x6'' print, and going up to $1.49 for each 5''x7'' image. Those seeking larger sized photos to liven up shamelessly bare mantles can enlarge a print to sizes such as 11''x14'' ($7.95) or 24''x30'' ($45), a size well-suited for hiding a hole caused by a rogue wrecking ball.
The Youngstown State Penguins ignite the crowd with intense athletic prowess and orange orb-slinging action. With the two-ticket package, dunk-hungry duos will witness the Penguins as they strive to overcome the Bowling Green Falcons as part of ESPN's BracketBusters weekend, which generally features non-conference matchups of teams looking to clinch the NCAA Championship and claim the spoils of basketbattle. Groups of four can maintain the hoop-hammering adrenaline rush with a second basketball viewing, as the Youngstown State men's team finishes its 2010–11 regular season against the feisty felines of the Wisconsin-Milwaukee Panthers in what will be the senior Penguins' final home game at Beeghly Center.
