Backed by an extensive list of products and services, Daryll’s Car Audio's technicians augment autos with electronics both entertaining and essential. They install JL Audio bass packages that blast out pounding rhythms and nestle mobile entertainment systems into headrests, dashboards, and overhead compartments. Techs also install remote car starters, keyless entry, and alarm systems to warm, cool, and protect roadsters. While GPS systems guide drivers safely to their destinations, satellite radio plays on portable units or hides covertly behind existing stereos. Techs also soup up auto exteriors, boosting curb appeal with LED lights or animatronic hood ornaments.

When wear and tear strikes, the shop’s in-house repairman, Charles J. Quagliana, can nurse instruments back to functionality. Charles has honed his handiwork by working for superstars such as Mary J. Blige, Prince, The Beach Boys, and the Mos Eisley Cantina band.

Toting a modest selection of chocolate confections and candies, Joseph A. Fowler entered the 1901 Pan American Exposition hoping to plant the seed for a business in his newfound home of Buffalo. The company—founded in 1910—grew with each successive generation, and more than a century later, Fowler's celebrated chocolates continue to placate palates at six New York retail locations. The chocolatier has become synonymous with treats such as milk- and dark-chocolate truffles dubbed truffaloes, as well as sponge candy, which boasts a molasses-like flavor and an initially hard texture that quickly melts in the mouth. Like Count Chocula’s hairpiece, all of Fowler's fine-chocolate treats are crafted from the seeds of the theobroma cacao tree and use up to 60% cocoa solids for a rich cocoa flavor.
