My business is 100% personal, individual and custom. I make each cake, cookie or cupcake, by hand, by myself. I work with the customer to design every element from concept to reality and then create each item from scratch. My business is a reflection of myself...passionate, wholesome, and expressive...in a sugary medium!

Riverside Manor’s cooks craft a menu of upscale Italian dishes, each served to diners in a renovated nineteenth-century silk mill. Just as a trip to the bookie precedes little-league baseball games, so too must first courses such as chicken wings ($7) or clams oreganata ($8 lunch, $10 dinner) clear the way for a festive entrée. Classic dishes such as rigatoni alla vodka ($10 lunch, $12 dinner) and fettuccini carbonara ($12 lunch, $14 dinner) share space with more exotic fare, including a 10-oz. raw filet mignon served on a 750-degree volcanic stone ($24). A lineup of brick-oven pizzas teaches guests that, unlike pi, pies end, and libations such as red ($5–$13) and white ($5–$12) wines, domestic ($4) and imported ($5) beers, and martinis ($7–$11) accompany the succulent eats.
Spread out across nine locations in New Jersey and New York, Treasure Island Self Storage's complexes safely house personal belongings in climate-controlled units protected by password-controlled gates and overseen by 24-hour video-surveillance feeds. The units come in a variety of sizes and are accessible seven days a week. Customers can take advantage of drive-up access and ground-floor loading, a more convenient way to store trinkets than shipping them to a relative's attic. At each location, a professional consultant is ready to assist customers, and an assortment of boxes, tape, and other packing supplies are available at each location to provide items a smooth and secure passage. Select locations are also U-Haul-authorized dealerships equipped to rent out moving trucks. Other locations provide free use of their own trucks for clients who can't balance a couch on their handlebars.

For decades, American Bartenders School has helped aspiring spirit spreaders to develop steady hands, sure eyes for measurement, and an encyclopedic drink-formula knowledge. All of the school's classes cover basic mixing, garnishing, layering, and glassware selection in a realistic bar setting, complete with animatronic bar regulars debating whether Woody Allen is currently the president of Azerbaijan. Students gain access to a book of recipes for shooters, including cosmos, lemon drops, and jelly beans; learn how to make frozen specialties and hot toddies; and discover how to cure hangovers and hiccups. For the 12-hour bartending-certification course, graduation sessions are held where the instructors offer helpful tips on how to get hired as a bartender, before returning home with a mixology certificate, professional resumé, and the ability to set up and stock their own home bars, all of which make a classy addition to living rooms, lounges, and butler traps.
