There's enough brick inside Bella Gente to make even the most ambitious of big bad wolves think twice. Warmly rustic red brick walls enclose the casual trattoria, where intimate tables sit beneath posters and film memorabilia from the classic era of Italian cinema. The most important brick feature, however, is in the kitchen. Here, a wood-fueled brick oven cooks Bella Gente's signature pizzas. Chefs cover their pizza dough in classic toppings, which range from simple fresh basil and mozzarella to more complex combinations of prosciutto, artichokes, olives, and mushrooms.
Beyond the brick-lined trattoria area, Bella Gente also houses a separate formal dining room. The space's white tablecloths and fluted columns provide an elegant backdrop to plates of fettuccini bolognese, veal marsala, and other staples of fine Italian cuisine. Their customer-favorite pizza can be served here, too, and diners aren't even required to raise their pinkies while they pick up each slice.
At first glance, the 4,000 square foot main room at Wolke Chiropractic & Rehabilitation may look a lot like a state-of-the art gym, complete with a bike, treadmill, and colorful stability balls. But the machines here are much more advanced than everyday exercise equipment?they're the essential tools Dr. Anthony Wolke and his staff need to treat chiropractic concerns and injuries. Here, spinal decompression tables share space with a power plate that uses vibration to help tone muscles and shake out any rocks that patients may be storing in-between their vertebrae. Meanwhile, in private treatment rooms, the staff treats imbalances with acupuncture treatments and doles out massage therapy for those with more superficial aches and pains.
Each year, the coaches from Kiddie Soccer introduce thousands of children between the ages of 3.5 and 6 to the most popular team sport in the world—soccer—through safe, fun classes in a constructive environment. For the first 50 minutes of each session, groups of up to 12 kids engage in team-building games such as Red Light Green Light or Sharks and Minnows to build physical and cooperative skills and, above all, have fun. Kids then split off into teams for a 10-minute friendly competition, enjoying themselves while learning teamwork under the coach's watchful, supportive eye.
