Hanging blue lights illuminate the sushi bar at Saigon Bistro, where chefs slice, layer, and hand-sculpt rolls. Seaweed and rice shrouds the fresh fish, tempura, and vegetables of specialty rolls, while teriyaki and noodle dishes simmer in the kitchen. A variety of lunch specials pair eclectic Asian entrees with rice, salad, and soda, and a kids' menu grants youngsters reprieve from regular diets of peanut-butter sandwiches and plastic action-figure heads. Customers can feast in the chandelier-lit dining room and gaze back at the Asian ornamental stone lions positioned at the bar.

The educators behind Mad Science propagate a love of science, technology, engineering, and math through programs that immerse kids in exploration. Rather than standing at a lectern and droning on about static electricity or the life cycle of a cootie, the educators meet kids at eye level for experiments that actively instill principles of questioning and observation. Although their methods are fun, they're also meaningful—lessons align with STEM objectives and enrich classroom science curriculums. Scientists typically host workshops at school facilities, but also can transport their rockets, lasers, and slime to birthday parties and inquiry-based field trips.

With its first swing of the tee in 1917, Paschal Golf Club is a public course that has played host to legions of golf lovers, weekend warriors, and even the legendary Arnold Palmer. The verdant nine-hole course can be played from four different tee boxes, offering a challenge for golfers of all skill levels. Golfers can loop the nine-hole course twice, allowing them to correct errant shot selections on difficult holes such as the eighth, which presents a forced carry over an elongated pond to reach the green, a heavily fortified zone guarded by bunkers on both sides and another water hazard behind. The tranquil Richland Creek trickles through the course, treating eyes to frequent sightings of wildlife such as deer, birds, and grazing golf carts. A clubhouse, snack bar, and pro shop cater to players as they unwind or stock up on gear, and a putting green warms up pendulums before rounds.:m]]
The innovative Invisalign treatment corrects alignment with a system of clear, removable acrylic aligners. Using 3-D digital imaging and a certified Invisalign lab, the skilled artisans of dentition make custom aligners for each patient’s mouth. The technique straightens teeth in about 6–18 months for a faster turnaround time than traditional braces or elaborate invisibility cloaks. Patients can remove the devices for meals, brushing, or special events like tooth prom, though most people will never see the translucent devices. Supremia recommends the treatment for adults and older teens who have already had braces, or even for purely cosmetic purposes.
