  • Lincoln Park Stadium Bat and Grill
    We are delighted, thrilled, and entranced! Three local residents and friends have teamed up to bring the thirsty, hungry hordes (all of US!) a new and lovely place to enjoy upscale bar food and delectable libations. Affable and clever Florian Miranzadeh partnered with longtime friend Sean Tehrani, owner of the ever-lovely Basil Leaf Cafe on Clark Street, to dream up the concept, then brought in Justin Roof, talented and classically-trained chef, to manage the kitchen and bar. The fresh, fabulous result? LP Stadium! Lincoln Park Stadium Bar & Grill, cheerfully dubbed simply LP Stadium! The name hints at what you'll glimpse inside: wide screen televisions throughout so patrons can view sports in an almost panoramic fashion. But don't worry, fellow sports fans, you won't find the typical rowdy barely-old-enough-to-drink backwards-baseball-cap-toting fraternity-letter-clad beer-spewing crowd here who's mutinous roars drown out conversation; rather, it's a more sophisticated clientele. Picture a more epicurean patron who enjoys Gastro-Pub fare; someone who appreciates food elevated to the likes of house-made tomato basil soup, freshly-prepared fish tacos, succulent and juicy short ribs on cheesy grits, and dare we say almost elegant yet hearty salads (roasted salmon and roasted artichoke, anyone?). Naturally, you'll also find old-school favorites like generously-portioned French fries, piping hot and freshly prepared, or classic standards like chicken wings and meat-lovers' pizzas loaded with carnivores' favorite toppings. Libations? Well, you'll find plenty of brews, of course, including the popular monthly Mystery Beer, on tap for $3. (Think YOU can recognize it?) You'll also find a surprisingly deep selection of wines and craft cocktails that comprise potent concoction perfection. Sure, order your favorite whiskey, neat, or branch out and have the friendly bartenders shake up that richly complex, utterly indulgent chocolate martini you've been craving. The ambiance? It's everything you'd want an upscale sports bar to be, so in addition to all those television screens, you'll find a Game Time & Video Gamer's Den covered with leather sofa seating for maximum comfort. The staff at LP Stadium likes to keep things fresh, so there are plenty of events and gatherings afoot. Examples? A Bourbon-tasting is in the works for you connoisseurs, and you'll find something new and exciting every weekend, whether it's a bowling tournament or a Polar Plunge party.

  • Yoga Gyan Jyoti
    Born in India—the same land where yoga originated centuries ago—Poonam Gupta has felt a profound attachment to the ancient discipline since childhood, when her father led her through the first steps of what would become a lifelong journey. Those early sessions with her father led Poonam to spend countless hours meditating, meeting with teachers, and perusing spiritual texts. In the course of her studies, she discovered that the physical practice of yoga was only part of the equation; the process of studying and furthering her knowledge of the art proved equally self-empowering. Poonam thought back to this breakthrough when it came time to found her own studio, naming it Yoga Gyan Jyoti, which translates to “light of yogic knowledge.” Today, her daily yoga classes help practitioners to improve their flexibility, build their strength, and overcome weight issues. The center complements its yoga classes with training in ayurveda, an ancient system of medicine that focuses on correcting imbalances that result from years of poor nutrition or one-handed pushups.

  • Arthur Murray Dance Studio Rockford/Madison
    What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition? Arthur Murray Studios have been perfecting the art of teaching dance for the past 100 years. Whether you are here to connect with a special someone, reward yourself for the hard work you do or to become the next dance superstar, our professionals will personalize a program that is right for you. What's one tip for first-time students that will make them feel like veterans? Jump in. Keep your lessons as tight together as possible in the beginning. You will be well cared for in every learning opportunity the studio offers. Ask your teacher for homework. Stay after your lesson and practice at the studio if you can. Keep communicating with your instructor. Have fun. What was the inspiration to start or run this business? Dancing has had an immense impact on our own personal lives. The joy of social dance can correct any gloomy day. We came to Madison six years ago to continue to share our passion for life and dance. It is our deepest desire to enrich the lives of each individual that visits our family through dance. What do you love most about your job? Seeing a student come in from the real world and escaping for 45 minutes or more and having their whole world change completely. Witnessing them grow and succeed in their dancing, smiling at the end of a hard day. Becoming better mates, parents, individuals. Dance is so much more than steps.

  • Tasting Devine Cellar
    With its massive selection of varietals and styles, Lynfred Winery seems determined to make something for almost any wine drinker. The cellar brims with everything from bold, spicy reds to crisp and refreshing whites, as well as fruit wines made from apples, cherries, rhubarb, and pears. The grapes arrive from vineyards throughout California and Washington state, although the rest of the fruit typically comes from a bit closer to home, including growers throughout Michigan and Wisconsin. Despite this variety, the staff's commitment to approachable, fruit-forward flavors characterizes virtually everything that the winery makes. This dedication to easy drinking seems only natural given the winery's origins in a home basement. In 1975, Fred Koehler, along with his wife Lynn, decided to try to re-create the family wines his father and grandfather had made throughout the 1920s. The batches grew larger with each passing vintage, and, in 1979, Fred and Lynn chose to upgrade their homespun hobby into a commercial venture. Within six years, Lynfred Winery's creations began to appear in the national spotlight as they garnered awards and medals from wine competitions across the country. This attention allowed Fred to swell production even more, eventually expanding to a larger location in 1990. Fred and Lynn's legacy continues to inspire the staff as they operate a facility that creates more than 100,000 gallons of wine each year using as many as 80 varietals. These wines appear on restaurant menus, on retail shelves, and inside fish tanks throughout the Chicagoland area.

During each themed production, more than 100 performers garbed in dazzling outfits twirl high in the air, contort their bodies into impossible shapes, and solve long division problems to earn uproarious applause from the crowd. At Dream Studios in Pompano Beach, Florida, hundreds of contracted artists from around the world develop their skills and prep for Cirque Dreams performances under the direction of Neil Goldberg and his team of choreographers, contortionists, and designers.
