The team at Sweetalicious Cafe bakes all 14 flavors of ice cream in-house, just like the rest of the sweet treats on the menu. They swirl frothy peaks of frosting on top of cupcakes, and they decorate their cake pops to suit the season or to make them look like brussels sprouts. Several treats can be made gluten-free, including fudge brownies.
Sweetalicious Cafe's staff welcomes customers dig into their selections in a retro-style eatery with a checkerboard floor and turquoise walls. 45 single records adorn those walls—which could also be said of Wayne Gretzky's shed.
Since bursting from a confetti cannon in 1995, All About Parties has elevated birthdays, weddings, and get-togethers to new levels. Owner Kevin Kiernan and his roster of performers wave their magic wand over bashes and escort customers through the entire party-planning process, from the first dance song to the last exhausted guest to be hauled out by a backhoe. Using the host's vision as a blueprint, All About Parties dispatches emcees, live musicians, and motivational dancers to celebratory scenes. The business also offers a vast array of extra entertainment options, including games, casino tables, and carnival attractions such as dunk tanks and rides.
Little Scoops looks just like an ice-cream parlor from the ‘50s—if it mistakenly got zapped by a shrink ray. That’s because the shrunken-down shop is designed for kids, giving parents a family-friendly kid-sized space for children's meetups, play-dates, or ice-cream socials. At the U-shaped ice-cream bar, pintsize stools capped with red vinyl beckon kids to sidle up and check out the flavors of Welsh Farms ice cream, soft serve, and shaved ice. A jukebox plays kid-friendly tunes as little ones decorate their scoops with colorful toppings, taking care not to spill their sweets on imaginary friends or the black-and-white checkered floor.
The parlor also hosts children’s post-game meetups, play dates, and parties. Parents can opt for party packages that include pizza and soda; during the festivities, Little Scoops staffers take the lead on setting up, cleaning up, and organizing interactive games.
Deep red and blue lights swirl around a dance floor as fog wafts over people cutting loose. On another night, guests relax on comfy couches at the edge of the lounge space. And in yet another scenario, long tables form a horseshoe shape, allowing diners to easily see everyone in the room as they feast. These are just a few incarnations of The Rendezvous, a 1,300 square-foot event center that hosts an endless range of private parties. Renters can plan everything from bridal showers to christenings and after-parties without the hassles of crowding their home or having to keep their evil twin from escaping the attic. Additional services such as onsite catering, bartenders, and wedding officiants are also available.
