Envision Video Services saves recorded relics from the dustbin of multimedia history with its media digitization services. Envision's ambience archivists crack open the contents of a range of outdated films and formats, including VHS, Betamax, and Hi8 tape, preserving contents on future-friendly DVDs and CDs. Rediscover heaps of home movies with video digitization, freeing memories of birthdays, holidays, and Mr. Belvedere tributes from captivity within antiquated storage systems (single tape conversions start at $19.95). Older self-cinematographers can unspool rusty reels with Envision's film digitization, allowing new generations to peek into historical family vacations or discover full-color proof of LBJ's secret life as a sideshow contortionist (starting at $49.90, plus $0.16 per foot).

The team at Sweetalicious Cafe bakes all 14 flavors of ice cream in-house, just like the rest of the sweet treats on the menu. They swirl frothy peaks of frosting on top of cupcakes, and they decorate their cake pops to suit the season or to make them look like brussels sprouts. Several treats can be made gluten-free, including fudge brownies.

Sweetalicious Cafe's staff welcomes customers dig into their selections in a retro-style eatery with a checkerboard floor and turquoise walls. 45 single records adorn those walls—which could also be said of Wayne Gretzky's shed.
