Since 1984, the knowledgeable staff at Tallahassee Photo has been helping customers take, display, and transform their photos, videos, and artwork. The shop's stock of photo equipment and supplies includes cameras and lenses from Sony and Canon, as well as Fujifilm film, Tamrac camera bags, and other accessories. Once photographers have snapped their shots, they can head to the website for online photo-printing services, or they can order photo books, greeting cards, and photo gifts.
The professional framers stock more than 200 frames for custom jobs. They can also inlay their work with custom-cut mats, including those with multiple openings to display shots of everyone in a family or show off a progression of a cat's Christmas sweaters over the years. They're also able to create frame-free canvas and gallery wraps.
For moving pictures, Tallahassee Photo’s staff offers video-transfer services. They use the same equipment employed by the Library of Congress and the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences to handle 8mm, Super 8mm, and 16mm films. They can also transfer formats such as VHS and Betamax onto DVDs or transfer old audio formats (such as LP records) onto CDs.
The chefs at A La Provence show discipline in their commitment to classic French recipes as well as to how they source ingredients; they use only natural organic beef, domestic veal and lamb from Marcho Farms or Strauss Farms, locally grown organic produce, and fish and shellfish brought fresh daily from Southern Seafood. Using these meats, they craft a gallery of traditional French- and European-American fusion dishes, relying on precise recipes rather than just carving steaks into the shape of Napoleon's face. They showcase their talent and creativity through a nightly changing amuse-bouche, a bite-size appetizer that servers ferry to tables before the main dinner. They follow this introduction with French classics such as rack of lamb, duck confit, and filet mignon. At lunch, they prepare salmon and rainbow trout with sides such as herb risotto and garlic haricots verts. The aromas of these dishes and international wines fill the stone-tiled dining room, where walls are hung with mirrors in gilded frames, delicate sconces, floral displays, and oil paintings of tree-lined French streets.
Photographer Dina Ivory has cultivated more than 30 years of experience in her field—shooting timeless portraits of adults, children, and infants. Dina and her staff grease the wheels of each shoot, ensuring things run smoothly by catering to kids with treats, assisting subjects with wardrobe and prop choices, and supplying parents with diapers for little ones. The client-focused experience, which helped the studio win a “Best of” nod in 2010 and 2011 from Tallahassee Magazine, continues with complimentary portrait consultations, wherein an expert photographer walks subjects through their photo options before the camera starts clicking. Inside the studio, Dina snaps families in front of classic backgrounds before digitally retouching each batch of shots. Outside, Dina guides guests to a picturesque farm on Sunray Road where she captures subjects gliding through the air on a tire swing, leaning against a bale of hay or a vintage 1948 Ford truck, or giving a pedicure to a belgian draft horse.
Creating A Scene's owner, Alaina Walker, works with clients to enliven indoor and outdoor spaces with custom displays of silk and live plants. The company's consultants arrange foliage and flowers into elegant centerpieces for weddings or other special events, and they can even supply plant party favors that guests can take home with them or devour on the ride home. The retail showroom mimics that of any other florist shop, save for the sheer variety of its inventory, which includes unique specimens such as pineapple plants. The company's healthy-plant guarantee ensures the longevity of purchases, and its plant-maintenance service sees the crew making regular return trips to local businesses to fertilize, water, trim, and polish rented plants and replace any that have wilted. Creating A Scene also donates funds through its Pick A Plant program, which awards 30% of each eligible purchase to a nonprofit of the customer's choice.
If 4th Quarter Bar & Grill's big-screen TVs and walls teeming with sports memorabilia don’t prompt cheers from game-day fans, the expansive menu—awash in burgers, sandwiches, and hearty steaks—ought to rouse at least a few salutes. Jerseys from acclaimed players gaze down upon the kitchen's savory creations, which fill mornings with pancakes and egg dishes while whiling away the evening hours with chicken-fried steaks and eight flavors of wings. At the bar, drink slingers deliver frothy pours of more than 60 beers, forging braver hands for dart competitions and more heartfelt sing-alongs with the Internet jukebox. On Tuesdays, trivia buffs go head to head answering questions about current events, historic facts, and pop-culture knowledge, creating a more satisfying blend of comestibles and intellect than Galileo's invention of sliced bread.
