One man crouches low, weapon resting on his shoulder. Another stands erect, a pair of binoculars held to his face. An entire military squad of toy soldiers stands ready for eternal battle within a shadow box crafted by Neal Raffensberger. The shadow box is one of 4,000 framing options showcased inside Raffensberger Photography & Framing's red-brick façade, where professional photographer and custom-framing specialist Neal and his assistant help patrons conserve their most beloved mementos. Multitudes of frames, mats, mountings, and glass—including conservation glass that blocks 99% of color-dulling UV rays—come together to display anything from photographs and posters to jerseys and wisdom teeth. Neal, who first dabbled in photography at the age of 5 in his father's basement darkroom, also flaunts his artistic eye behind the camera in the store's onsite studio. Families, couples, and proof-seeking Bigfoots can capture history in portrait sessions, which use digital photography to allow for immediate viewing after each shoot.

At Old Skool Fight Sports and Fitness, head coach Rob Pilger has won three Golden Gloves championships in boxing and fought professionally. Nowadays, though, he and his team helm workouts for all levels. Boot camps are taught by National Physique Competitor Erin Brown, who uses her boxing skills and passion for weightlifting to focus on skills more than fighting in the ring, with exercises like jump roping, burpees, and footwork drills. Trainers also lead more advanced training sessions for competitive boxers, along with youth boxing workouts and mixed-martial-arts sessions.
During a regular season that stretches from March to October, the players on Columbus Crew SC strike. The team’s soccer-specific stadium—the first professional one in the US—has served as a model for the rest of the MLS, granting crowds excellent sightlines of the on-field action. Newcomers to fútbol might want to sit near the Nordecke (German for North Corner) to witness the antics of the grassroots supporters’ groups.
The Cachet Salon has treated lads and ladies to rejuvenating makeovers and style resuscitations for more than 21 years. An expert team of strand sculptors attack sloppy mops with skilled chops to create comely cranial topiary, offering an array of services to clients in need of both minor maintenance and major overhauls. Men?s and women?s haircuts with styling begin with careful coiffeur appraisals before the scissor-wielding snip savants commence their artful cutting ($39). Eyebrow tinting ($15) and eyebrow arch waxing ($17) accentuate the ocular canopies that keep the forehead from invading the rest of the face. A semi-permanent coloring treatment using Paul Mitchell products ($48) is a wonderful, simple conduit for reinventing a tired look or establishing differentiation between twins who refuse to wear nametags.
A smash off-Broadway hit, The Piano Teacher tells the haunting tale of the sweetly maternal Mrs. K, a piano teacher whose past may be much darker than her cookie-chomping demeanor reveals. Penned by Susan Smith Blackburn Prize recipient Julia Cho, directed by Mark Routhier, and performed by a collection of top local and national talent, The Piano Teacher presents audiences with a riveting amalgam of suspense and storytelling prowess.
