Named the top pumpkin patch in Willamette Valley in 2011 by The Statesman Journal, the Bauman family has been sharing the soil's annual harvest with locals since 1894 through pumpkin patches and family-friendly autumn activities. After picking through gourds in search of the next jack-o'-lantern or latest replacement mannequin head, guests can visit vivacious livestock at the animal barn, defy gravity at the ziplines, and race through the obstacle course. A rock wall challenges visitors’ nimbleness, and the corn tunnels, playground, and tire castle tickle tykes' imaginations. Outdoor adventurers can take the barnyard experience home by picking up a homemade apple-caramel pie and fresh produce (not included in today’s Groupon) or by painting cow udders under dad's car.
The scents of cooking Indian sauces flood Happy Curry Foods, hinting at the turmeric, herbs, and peppers that cook down into a range of curries. On the brimming shelves, fresh or frozen chutneys wait to cut that powerful spice alongside a selection of dal, and rice to squeegee up excess sauce or slip easily into an envelope to buy blackmail photos from a duck. Happy Curry Foods’ offerings aren’t all ingredients, however—its restaurant on Church Street befriends palates with flavorful curry noodles masala, hand-tossed flatbreads, and tender chicken breast dressed with multiple chutneys.
With over 50 years of combined experience and as members of the American Association of Orthodontists, the orthodontists at Miller & Teel have been helping patients achieve beautiful, healthy smiles using cutting-edge dental technology. During the initial exam, doctors inspect mouths for bite problems, screen for signs of oral caner, gum disease, and temporomandibular joint disorder (TMJ), and scrutinize hard tissue for lesions or secret candy stashes. When your mouth is ready for its close-up, a set of x-rays will reveal any fugitive abnormalities lurking under the mouth’s morally upright surfaces. After receiving its stamp of healthy approval, the doctor will then take impressions—or molds—of the teeth, to be used in the Invisalign treatment.
Jack-o’-lanterns have the most radiant faces, and not just because they have actual flames backlighting their smiles. The radiance also comes from a pumpkin’s salutary blend of vitamin C, antioxidants, and enzymes. Hence the key ingredient in the botanical facial and peel at Cosmos Déjà Vu Salon. This inventive approach to skincare exemplifies the care and attention the salon’s licensed aesthetician, Alison, lends to her clients’ faces. For her half-dozen facials, she calls upon other natural ingredients such as seaweed and honey to exfoliate and cleanse visages. Alison also performs a full menu of makeup services, including bridal packages and tutorials for students eager to kick their daily routines up a notch.
