As its name suggests, Whatever You Need helps homeowners tackle a wide range of carpentry, woodwork, and light-duty domestic tasks both indoors and out. Customers receive a free estimate of each project’s time and cost beforehand, giving them a clearer idea of how many shelves they wish to hang or whether the doghouse really needs a three-car garage. Fresh paint brightens walls and clogged vents breathe easy after a visit from the handy helpers, who may also be enlisted to sweep snow from roofs and sidewalks or clean debris from swimming pools. Whatever You Need! is not licensed for extensive electrical and plumbing services, but can unclog customers’ drains, or help lonely outlets revive their dating lives with a new face.

The crew of Pig Thyme Catering brings the accoutrements of a Hawaiian-style luau to clients' backyards. A whole pig on a spit slowly turns over an open fire, and the fragrance of spices fills the air, turning evil tikis into friendly family pets. Hawaiian-style side dishes made with pineapple and special spice blends round out meals. Staff members can arrange for add-ons such as games, face painting, and beverage service.

Edward and Kristine Mele were driving their son to baseball practice one day when a downpour caused the team to relocate to indoor batting cages. This serendipitous change led the Mele family past Sand Trap Mini Golf, which was derelict and for sale. Within a week, the Meles owned the course. Gathering up their sons, daughters, siblings, and friends, the couple renovated the grounds, removing the debris and haunted windmills that littered the place. Today, Sand Trap's gleaming 18-hole course draws families and friends outdoors to revel in spirited competition. As they progress through the course, Coca-Cola beverages and Blue Bunny ice cream help visitors keep cool and stop them from burrowing into a bunker hidden beneath the 18th hole.

Q&A with the Marketing Director

Apart from your business's main attraction, do you offer any "hidden" services or activities that visitors are always delighted to learn about?

That Red's Tavern is located very close to the ropes course for people who want to eat afterwards.

I'm a first-timer. How do you get me ready for the experience?

Safety is our top priority. The smart belay harness system has two carabiner clips; when one is removed the other one stays locked in at all times. Before adventuring through the courses, one of our staff members will give you a brief training seminar.

What is the experience customers can expect, and how do you make it special?

Nomads Outdoor Adventure is Connecticut's new and exciting family-owned aerial adventure park. Platforms are constructed in the trees and connected by obstacles all over 9 acres of land. Get ready to be challenged by our rope bridges, free fall, skateboard, zip lines and more.
