Founded in 1928, Carr Hardware stocks more than 50,000 items that can aid in everything from DIY home-construction projects and lawn maintenance to automotive and party supplies. Shake down low-life weeds for lunch money with Roundup Pump 'N Go Weed & Grass Killer ($16.99), or surround them with positive role models by purchasing the 3.75-pound container of EZ Seed, a life-affirming combination of mulch, seed, and fertilizer ($13.99). Black or tan stack chairs ergonomically assist in lemonade consumption ($18 each), and children can wield 24-inch lawn-and-leaf rakes ($6.99) and glow LED flashlights ($3.99–$6.99) during lawn-raking raves. The 18-inch bamboo grill brush cleans cooking grates with dazzling fortitude and is amply suited to futuristic application as a robot loofah ($6.99).
The chefs at Justin's forge a menu of snappy American fare inspired by the eatery’s live jazz performances. After completing their dinner application forms, guests can feast on orange-brandied glazed duck breast positioned atop mounds of mashed sweet potatoes and beans ($20.95). Jamaican jerk chicken weaves a complex tale of meaty flavors ($17.95), and Cajun-stuffed chicken breasts prove that what's inside counts with a hidden trove of crabmeat and shrimp stuffing ($18.95). Perfect for satisfying rumbling tummies or anchoring a plate made of balloons, shrimp and clam puttanesca weighs down its pasta with a heaping helping of capers, black olives, and anchovies ($19.95). Patrons can also excavate spinach and gorgonzola ore from a stuffed and mounted filet mignon adorned with a portabella demi glaze ($26.95). As they absorb live jazz among flickering candles in Justin's softly lit interior, couples can whisper sweet nothings to one another or show their love by planning a joint synchronized swimming routine.
Pet Lodges hosts cats and dogs for boarding and daycare across five New York and Vermont locations, including the Albany airport. During dog daycare, pooches frolic in an enclosed pebble-lined yard, where affable staffers referee games of chase and fetch. Kitty camps treat cats to three private levels of cozy climbing and napping furniture, and dog suites include raised, cushioned beds and three to four trips to the exercise yard each day. Daycare, kitty camps, and canine luxury suites' built-in webcams allow families to check in on their pets as they socialize, sleep, and perfect their latest tail-braiding-tutorial videos. Pet Lodges' sister store, Checkerhills Farm, stocks organic and holistic dog and cat foods, as well as dog-wash stations and coffee and treats for humans in Glenville.
Forget the foil. Turn in your épée. At Beaches Sabre Club, the saber is king. The most dynamic of fencing's three categories, saber is quick and aggressive: competitors can score points by striking each other with the edge of the blade or in a slashing motion, and everything above the waist—including the head—is fair game. This approach lends itself to lightning-fast attacks that land across the upper body. Knowing this, the instructors at Beaches emphasize safety during every meeting, whether they’re welcoming beginners to the club's introductory classes or honing seasoned skills during private lessons. They also supply the necessary protective gear so students don't have to mummify themselves in bubble wrap before every visit.
