With more than 25 years of experience, Box Brothers offers a panoply of packing supplies and accouterments along with brand-name and custom shipping services. Box Brothers stocks more than 100 different sizes of boxes, including standard 1.5-cubic-foot book- or record-carton boxes ($1.49 each, $1.29 each in a bundle of 25) and sweater-sheltering wardrobe boxes ($12.99, $11.99 each in a bundle of five). Their cardboard cowboys will help find the right receptacle for hand-woven wares, and can also make or cut custom-size boxes for oddly shaped items such as spare harpoons and handcrafted kitchen sinks.
Grilled over charcoal, smoked with hickory and oak, and smothered with an artful balance of homemade sauce and seasoning. When it comes to barbecuing Kansas-style spareribs and half-chickens, the pit masters at Brothers Barbeque draw on more than 30 years of experience to infuse each slab of meat with smooth, smoky flavors. Beef, hot links, and tri tips undergo a similarly thorough treatment before filling sandwich rolls, and the cooks slather pork ribs from Farmer John in a blend of spices more secret than the robot that does all of the president’s biddings.
Southern-style sides, including potato salad and baked beans round out Brothers Barbeque's menu, and can be enjoyed as carry-out or shipped to homes in vacuum-sealed, dry-iced packaging. The barbecuing team also caters small parties and large events, including numerous smooth-jazz festivals every year.
Kinetic Theory helps aspiring clowns, acrobats, and plate spinners learn the dangling ropes of circus showmanship with its performance-training program. Led by veteran performers including Cirque du Soleil alums and professionally trained aerialists, the intro to circus arts course incorporates elements of aerial arts, acrobatics, physical training, and basic object skills such as clown-car repair to provide a well-rounded primer on big-top performance. Classes are kept small so students can focus on learning essential skills necessary for safe tumbling and performance, while also improving fitness with a dynamic workout. Kinetic Theory's spacious studio features sturdy safety mats beneath a variety of ropes, silk drapes, and trapezes that provide the playful nostalgia of a playground without the muckraking toddler politics. Introductory classes are held Tuesday and Thursday evenings and Sunday afternoons for adults, while youth sessions take place Thursday afternoons for children as young as 6 years old.
