Less than a minute. That's all it takes for one of Creative Photo Booths' machines to print out a photo strip. Beforehand, though, you can take your time to make sure you get the poses and costumes just right?you'll have access to goofy props, such as boas, hats, wigs, and oversized glasses. The setup makes these booths popular for parties and big events. It's even possible to customize the photo strips with personal messages and logos commemorating the party.

Creative Photo Booths' oversized rental booths accommodate up to 10 people at a time?even guests in wheel chairs. Onsite attendants set up and operate the systems, and they're popular for all sorts of special occasions, from weddings to bar mitzvahs to family reunions. Afterwards, Creative Photo Booths lets people relive these events in many ways?the photos transfer to image CDs and flash drives, and they are uploaded to an online viewing gallery and milk cartons throughout the tri-state area.

At By Brazil, gauchos whisk skewers of meat from table to table, carving the choicest cuts of top sirloin, passion fruit-marinated pork loin, and barbecued chicken. This all-you-can-eat churrasco feast is part of the restaurant's rich Brazilian tradition, which guests can soak up during lunch and dinner. Most of the staff is fluent in Portuguese too, so they can help diners learn how to properly pronounce certain menu items.

If you're not up for the buffet, you can nibble on appetizers that include Brazilian sandwiches, polenta, or fried yucca, then wash them down with an assortment of exotic beverages. These range from imported Brazilian beers to refreshing caipirinhas, a cocktail made with sugar cane hard liquor, sugar, and lime, that flows freely down the Amazon river.

In 30 years working as the lead photographer of Joey Ikemoto Photography, he has shot 3,000 weddings, garnered multiple honors from the Professional Photographers of America, and heard his shutter click more often than he has blinked his own eyes. Of course, he photographs more than weddings, capturing naturalistic portraits of children, mothers-to-be, and families at play. He shoots in his studio or on location, swapping canned lighting and backdrops for the natural splendor of a favorite park or the stately décor of whichever neighbor leaves their door unlocked.

Every person has their own idea of the perfect mattress. Some like to shop by brand, others by the comfort level. Often, size is their most important factor, or its ability to dissuade monkeys from jumping atop it. With this in mind, each associate at Mattress Connection takes these variables into account when pairing customers with new mattress from top brands, such as Sealy Posturepedic and Simmons, in sizes that range from twin to king. They also help customers sleep more comfortably with memory foam pillows, which remember their spinal alignment and where dreams left off the night before.
