A Southwest-based company for more than a century, Frazee Paint and its team of manufacturers are well acquainted with the unique climactic conditions of the region. Always pulling from the latest technology, their technicians design each of their paint and coating products to withstand dry heat, sparse rainfall, and showers of chewing tobacco from passing cowboys.

Before looking through the camera lens, the expert photographers at Picture People spend time getting to know their subjects and establishing a strategy for conveying their personalities in print. Then, film-ready clients pose in the bright camera room, airing teeth amid colorful backdrops and creative props. Following snapshots, subjects make their way to the selection station to choose their favorite poses from their session, which may be treated with sepia tones, color accents, and decorative borders to suit any wall, wallet, wallpaper pattern, or trophy walleye.
Picture People encourages subjects to arrive 15 minutes early to the shoot and offers a variety of creative tips to help enhance mantel-dominating final results. The studio ensures satisfaction with a 100% guarantee on finished products.
Because no two body imprints are the same, Mattress Land’s on-deck relaxologists use exclusive bedMatch diagnostic technology to determine the ideal snooze position for each customer, as well as the ideal mattress. Comfy cushions come from premier brands such as Simmons, Tempur-Pedic, Sealy, Laura Ashley, and SleepFit, and shoppers can upgrade to latex mattresses or mattresses with My Side technology, which accommodates the differing body types of spouses and accidentally conjoined mad scientists. After a good night's sleep, patrons find that joints ache less and that dreams last longer and contain fewer calculus tests. Staffers perform free local delivery and removal for purchases $599 and up, so customers and their unwanted bedding can avoid awkward goodbyes. Every mattress comes stamped with the store's own 100-day Comfort Guarantee, which gives dissatisfied customers full credit towards a new mattress.

A Double Gold Medal award winner for its 2007 Lucas Vineyard zinfandel at the 2010 Finger Lakes International Wine Competition, Ramos Torres Winery produces several Central Valley–grown wines under the direction of Oscar Ramos, who holds a degree in enology and a minor in enosophy (the study of wine's thoughts). An in-store wine tasting will let you and a beverage buddy tiptoe your taste buds through a selection of five Ramos Torres varietals and fermented concoctions, which may include the 2008 Vino Tinto, a careful blend of cabernet sauvignon, petit sirah, petit verdot, and alicante bouchet. The 2009 Conversations blends apricot aromas, muscat blanc, and the citrus sensations of orange muscat—tailor-made for sipping atop a bucking bronco. Tasters are then challenged to select between a bottle of the Vino Tinto and a bottle of Conversations.
