Voted Connecticut's Scariest Haunted House by the Norwich Bulletin, The Dark Manor fills visitors with terror and keeps hearts pounding throughout two floors of haunted rooms, a spooky cemetery, and a haunted village. Thrill seekers stalk through chambers teeming with haunting sights, shrieking at decrepit skeletons in electric chairs and hordes of giant, wall-clinging cockroaches. After surviving the manor's mind-bending set pieces and horrifyingly neglectful housekeeping, adventurers must wander through the cemetery and village. Amid the graveyard's tombstones roams a chainsaw-wielding freak offering free haircuts, and the denizens of the haunted village lurk amid shadows as masked horrors seek to startle the souls out of passersby.
Liz and Phil Kramer work together to rejuvenate the whole being within a treatment room styled to mimic a comfortable living room with a gas fireplace and plush beds. Liz trained as a holistic counselor, and Phil draws upon certification as a massage therapist to help relax patrons after they chaperone Humpty Dumpty’s gymnastics class. Scents from complimentary aromatherapy unfurl through the air, stirred only by deep exhalations during customized deep-tissue massages. The shelves brim with Yonka products and Firmi sea mud, and the holistic healers also use Soul Synergy's personal cream products and hot towels saturated in aromatic Phyto Bain with every treatment.:m]]

Harrison Photo Booth Company combines the artistic eye of a photographer with the picture-developing power of a photo lab in its party-ready photo booths. Sized to hold up to 10 revelers, the booths click off four pictures per session before developing them into strip-style pictures and storing digital backups for later perusal. Before hopping in for their close-ups, revelers can also adorn themselves in playful provided props, which can be used to elicit laughs or impersonate more photogenic siblings. The booths are available for special events including weddings, fundraisers, and company picnics, and customers can customize packages to include extras such as a high-resolution DVD of all their photo-booth moments.
Raya's serves a mélange of comfort foods, with an emphasis on Greek and Italian favorites, in a family-friendly atmosphere. Their menu is a mishmash of mouth treats, featuring everything from pizza (all under $15) to chicken wings, which come in 11 flavors, including Hawaiian, teriyaki, and "awesome," a wing that will give your taste buds a foot massage with one hand while juggling with the other. Burgers, paninis, gyros, and subs (each under $9) all fight it out for sandwich domination, while seafood and pasta lurk in the corner, waiting to jump the winner. The Cajun-flavored Mardi Gras chicken ($12.95) and the Surf-n-Turf topped with shrimp ($14.95) are just a couple of the menu items that Raya's recommends as house specialties. The dining room is warm and inviting, with wood paneling, white table cloths, and comfortable red vinyl booths waiting to prop up hungry diners as they pore over Raya's sizeable bill of fare.
Over the course of 20 years, family-operated Just Like New has inspected apparel, accessories, and home furnishings from thousands of consigners, accepting only the pieces that meet strict quality and style standards. At the start of each fashion season, the family treks to New York City to gather enough designer duds to restock two 5,000-square-foot locations. Clothing, shoes, and accessories by classic brands such as Coach and Ann Taylor adorn shelves and keep mannequins from being charged with public indecency, and a children's section outfits youngsters in apparel purchased exclusively from catalog brands and specialty stores. Just Like New's jewelry selection glitters with 14-karat gold and sterling silver; vintage and costume jewelry occasionally makes the cut by way of jingling the shop owners' favorite songs. Vintage glassware, furniture, and artwork make unique design accents for the home.
