Classes at La Piazza di Carolina marinate students in the language and culture of Italy, preparing families for vacations abroad and instilling a foundation of bilingualism in young children. The cooking workshop invites pint-sized sous chefs to gather around the table of a kitchen classroom to learn basic Italian cooking terminology while crafting classic Italian dishes and conjugating verbs to a golden brown. Tiny aprons and toques transform apprentices into confident spaghetti slingers as they knead pizza dough, blend ricotta fillings, and craft tiramisu, all while learning Italian translations for ingredients and techniques. Parting gifts include the day’s recipes and Italian vocab flashcards made out of pizza.
The Bagel Loft's owners, Jimmy Pappia and Ralph Rodriguez, make their bagels the old fashioned way. Then, they are enhanced with a variety of sweet and savory toppings including eggs and cheese, white fish, and cinnamon raisin cream cheese. These bagels transcend their status as a breakfast food when sliced and used to bookend smoked turkey, grilled chicken, roast beef, and other sandwich fillings. Patrons can also pair their bagel bites with cheeseburgers, pancakes, or salads.

A child could grow up at Building Blocks Daycare. Their staff welcomes infants, toddlers, and school-aged children, overseeing intellectually stimulating activities for each age level. Infants start by shaking rattles, crawling, levitating, and engaging in other activities designed to build motor skills. Toddlers, meanwhile, move on to more advanced forms of play. They build towers out of blocks, create artwork, and sing during music time.
Older kids arrive once the school bell rings. Before they play outside or read a story, the boys and girls complete any required homework. Building Blocks Daycare's staff ensures the schoolwork gets done. For all ages and programs, at least two CPR- and first-aid-certified daycare providers supervise children at all times.
Broken Bow Brewery began as a labor of love. The owners initially brewed beers solely for friends and family, but they decided to take their hobby to the next level after receiving heaps of praise and a confident "Go for it" from the local soothsayer. Today, they strive to maintain that same small-batch quality, but they share the fruits of their labor with thirsty strangers from near and far. A wide variety of beers—including creamy stouts and refreshing lagers—rotates through the taps in the tasting room, where visitors are encouraged to bring their own food to pair with the brews.
