The Magic Closet owner Sandra Riccio-Muglia is no stranger to the stress of planning a birthday party, since she has two kids of her own. That parenting experience, combined with 14 years of hosting VIP events for adults, equipped Sandra to plan themed parties for children to teenagers in a 2,400-square-foot location. Although they're welcome to stick around, parents can take a load off and sip coffee as the staff take the reins for parties centred around Barbies, Harry Potter, Rockstar Diva, Lego, create-a-bear, or other kid-friendly themes.
When Carmen and Pina Simone emigrated from Italy, their knack for cooking traditional Italian cuisine made it through customs unscathed. The Past House founders' authentic tortellini, ravioli, and gnocchi are crafted from durum semolina flour and real whole eggs, and blended with meats such as Ontario certified corn-fed beef. Their meat lasagna is made without preservatives or artificial flavours, giving diners a hearty meal and Garfield a reason to continue on in spite of his inexorable battle against Mondays.

While some places focus on specialty entrees, the chefs at Detroit’s Finest Soul Food focus on satisfying customers with a whole meal. That’s why they join each entree with a slice of corn bread and a choice of two sides—such as fresh-picked collard greens, mac 'n' cheese made with five cheeses, or spaghetti. They make their meals fresh daily and center them around a chosen cut of meat, such as a slice of hearty meatloaf or chicken in a choice of white meat, dark meat, or barbecue. They often finish meals on a sweet note with crumbly peach cobbler or banana pudding. They also use their grill skills to create half- and full-sized pans of their dishes for weddings, barbecues, and LAN parties.
