Kids aged 6 weeks to 6 years choose their own adventure at Portside Montessori. There, classrooms are divided into six sections, which correspond with six areas of learning: practical life, sensorial, language, math, cultural, and creative subjects such as art and music. All the class materials for each area are placed low to the ground where kids can reach them instead of perched up high collecting dust. Kids can easily go from area to area based on their interests at the time, exploring abstract math concepts, reading, or playing music. Teachers stand by to guide children along their journey but are careful to allow them a sense of independence.
The bakers at Cookies and Milk are out to make sweet dreams a little sweeter with their delivery service. Starting at 8 p.m. each Thursday, Friday, and Saturday night, fresh batches of warm chocolate-chip, peanut-butter, sugar, or chocolate-crinkle cookies are deployed to ease cravings across the city, and the tasteful deliveries don't cease until the wee hours of the morning. To encourage dessert-time dunking, each batch of cookies can be paired with cold milk, and the staff can even include a handwritten note in the order, making cookie delivery a great way to tell someone you care or remind your landlord that your oven is broken.
Clean clothes are always in fashion. That's the idea behind Vogue Cleaners, whose technicians gently take the stains out of everything from formal wear to everyday duds. Fragile materials such as leather pose no problem to Vogue's professional team, nor do household textiles, wedding dresses, or hand-stitched Richard Nixon costumes. But the company doesn't just freshen up clothing; it also keeps the planet clean by packaging outfits in reusable bags and using an EPA-supported "wet cleaning" technique on sensitive garments.
Signature service: Self-storage space
Staff Size: 2?10 people
What is one of your signature services? How is it performed?
We offer clean storage units in several sizes that are manned by friendly on-site managers. You can pay month to month, and no minimum term is required.
All of Superior Self Storage's units are individually alarmed, and the premises have video-surveillance cameras and security guards patrolling 24 hours a day. Opt for a 5'x10' storage space ($75+/month) and fill it full of one to two bedrooms' worth of Saran Wrap, or go for a more cozy 5'x5' space ($55+/month) to stow away boxes of winter wear and skis until snow season returns. You may also apply the value of this deal toward a larger storage space. Superior Self Storage also offers free truck rental, so you'll have a more convenient way to move your boxes than strapping them to the back of a penny-farthing.
Advanced Auto Spa's staff prepares vehicles for winter's visitation with the interior and exterior cleanings of the super wash. At the spa, which saw The Situation's Bentley to cleanliness, buggies ride through the tunnel's automated sprays to clear their outer parts and underbodies of grime and erase dissertations scrawled on dirty windows. A coat of Armor All cleans and protects wheels and tires, and a layer of wax seals in shininess. To keep interiors sparkling, the cleaners vacuum up detritus and wipe down dusty dashboards, then give rides a quick towel drying and send them back out to cruise the world's highways.
