Brooklyn Ries and Danielle Craft thought long and hard before choosing a name for their salon. In the end, they decided on Angels & Architects Hair Studio—angels because they regularly help to correct hair disasters such as bad dye jobs and cuts, and architects because they pay attention to structure and detail.
Drawing from years of experience and professional training in salons across California and New York, the two aesthetes and their seasoned staff members spruce up locks, filling the shop with the thrum of scissors and the sibilance of spray bottles. As stylists hunch diligently over heads, sunlight pours in through the salon windows. When the sky fades to wintery slate, a fireplace crackles in front of cushy chairs and couches, warming hands and destroying documents about former presidents’ bad hair days.
A photo booth from Heather Dunn Photography can be a party-enlivening tool for birthdays, weddings, family reunions, and more. Rentals come with a number of extras, including a plethora of props such as silly hats and feathered boas, to get the photographed in the mood to strike a deadly pose. A trained attendant will be on hand throughout the event to make sure the booth is running efficiently and to suggest tried-and-true facial contortions. All strips printed are included in the rental, and the host receives a disc that contains every image taken during the event, so he or she can show family members every close-quarters shot in high quality.
Port of Subs' slice-savvy deli artisans shave meats and cheeses to assemble each sub on the menu, assembling eats before the customers' eyes. White, wheat, and sourdough rolls sliced into 5-, 8-, 12-, and 24-inch portions encapsulate cold sandwiches such as the No. 9—peppered pastrami layered with swiss and topped with lettuce, tomatoes, and purple onions before being seasoned with oil, vinegar, and spices ($3.79–$13.79). Salads delight taste buds year-round, and seasonal hot-pressed pilgrim grillers in 5-, 8-, or 12-inch incarnations hoard a cornucopia's worth of sliced turkey breast, moist stuffing, and cranberry sauce between a ruffled collar of ciabatta bread ($4.99–$7.99). A tortilla's embrace enfolds turkey and bacon-ranch wraps ($5.99), and all grillers and cold subs can also be turned into wraps. This deal can also be used toward catering, enabling hosts of game-day soirees or 10-year reunions for imaginary high-school friends to set forth stress-free cheese platters and party subs.
