SpitzerCares.org hopes to fund a million meals in 2012 through food pantries, shelters, kids’ cafés, and backpack programs. For every dollar it earns via community car washes, donations, and fundraising events, SpizerCares.org can provide four meals to northern Ohioans in need. Patrons can keep up with the organization’s progress online as a ticker shaped like an apple tallies the number of meals SpitzerCares.org has shelled out so far this year.

Yorktown Lanes boasts 40 lanes, each of which is equipped with automatic scoring systems. Just beyond the lanes' edge, a lineup of colorful vinyl chairs adds a touch of vintage class. And inside the newly renovated bar onsite, bartenders liberally pour spirits, draft brews, and other fine beverages. The alley also hosts birthday bowling parties in one of two private rooms, including a banquet hall that can host wedding receptions or graduate seminars on the difference between duckpins and regular bowling pins.
Owner Elizabeth Sheehe fills the aisles of Birds of a Feather, an authorized Pfaff and Elna dealer, with knitting, quilting, and textile art supplies, in addition to hosting an array of classes. During knitting classes, instructors impart basic stitches and techniques to refine yarn crafting or patch the space-time continuum. Quilting classes teach students basic concepts, how to make use of machine appliques, and how to convert vintage clothing into quilt squares. A rotating schedule of other classes net crafters finished projects such as knitted socks and felted totes. Groups of four or more can arrange clandestine after-hours knitting classes with a BYOB option and no additional fees.
