A short 6 mile trip from its more recognized cousin, Fallingwater, Kentuck Knob offers visitors a glimpse into one of Frank Lloyd Wright's distinctive Usonian homes. The small structure exemplifies Wright's abiding philosophy of organic architecture, as it melds naturally into its surroundings. Standing 2,050 feet above sea level, the home sits below a crest of hills, and its native tidewater red cypress and sandstone construction materials help it seem to sink into the hills themselves.
Tours of the property provide insight into the home, its features, and its original owners, as well as its newest inhabitants, Lord and Lady Palumbo, who have since filled Kentuck Knob with an extensive art collection. In fact, the gardens, woods, and meadow are dotted with works from such notable artists as Andy Goldsworthy, Claes Oldenburg, and Ray Smith.
For decades, JCPenney Portraits has welcomed families into its friendly studios, where professional photographers expertly photograph subjects of any age. Digital cameras, professional lighting, and a wide selection of backgrounds all work together to ensure a professional, personalized look for every family portrait, school picture, business headshot, or baby announcement. To customize the session even more, the staff also encourages guests to incorporate items with special meaning such as a baby blanket or a family heirloom. From a first baby portrait to senior pictures and engagement photos, JCPenney Portraits helps to preserve special family memories to come.
After the final flash, clients and a team member head to the viewing kiosk, where they can select their photos and customize them. Beyond traditional printed portraits, memories may also be preserved on high-resolution CD, gallery wraps, wall art, or through JCPenney Portraits' archival program, which allows clients to store and share their portraits online.
When requests for their showstopping seafood dishes poured in from more friends and family than they could fit inside their kitchen, the Krieger family set up shop inside a roomy Victorian mansion. Today, Ligonier Tavern still serves up crab cakes and ciopinno, as well as burgers made with local grass-fed beef. Diners can pair their meals with a drink from the bar, such as a cocktail made with Knob Creek bourbon, whether they're seated in the restaurant's solarium, its main dining room, or on its second-floor balcony.
Pluma features flavors from across the globe, with Asian fusion, traditional American, hints of Tex-Mex, invasions of Grecian flavor, and Mediterranean traditionals. Crash-land your appetite on the restaurant’s runway-sized menu and scour the pages to settle on an appetizer such as fried provolone (breaded and fried provolone cheese with house-made marinara, $8.95). Then, split a 16-inch meat lover’s pizza with a carnivorous amore (house-made sauce, sausage, pepperoni, ham, bacon, and Italian cheeses, $9.95).
Just because an invitation asks you to bring a "covered dish" to an event, that doesn't mean you can't get a little help with the cooking. In fact, the menu for the catering company Deli-Icious has a special section just for hot covered dishes, such as roast-beef asparagus rolls with horseradish cream cheese or shrimp and pasta primavera. Of course, the company can also provide full catering for events. For instance, a buffet package might include meat and cheese trays, vegetable platters, and your choice of hot dishes.
