Colvin Cleaners is located in Kenmore, but they offer free pickup and delivery for garment cleaning right to their customers' front doors. Their service area includes Amherst, Buffalo, downtown Buffalo, Clarence, East Amherst, Getzville, Grand Island, Kenmore, Lancaster, Lewiston, North Buffalo, Orchard Park, Snyder, Tonawanda, and Williamsville. Colvin’s staff can also pick up and return window treatments and will rehang and steam dress them to perfection, much to the chagrin of vain tablecloths. Colvin’s ozone room tackles fabrics with fire or water damage and efficiently extracts deep-seated odors and stains.
The business also operates an on-site alterations department complete with five full-time tailors and two dressing rooms for measurements and fittings. The full-service staff can generally have garments ready by the next day, but clients seeking same-day service can request it for no extra cost. When not dry cleaning and tailoring, Colvin Cleaners is working on their two charitable organizations Gowns 4 Prom and Coats 4 Kids.
Buffalo Memories Photo Booth arrives onsite to help hosts of events such as birthdays, proms, and weddings capture pictures of guests and lively memories. Spacious booths accommodate up to 15 people, accompanied by a box of props and scrapbooking materials to collect and save strips of photos.
The party specialists of Million Grins Party Rentals tested dozens of photo-booth designs before deciding what their custom booths would look like. In the end, they opted for a simple, reliable, and portable booth made of steel: the MG Hybrid photo booth. High-quality ink and paper ensure long-lasting prints that can be treasured atop mantels for years or left in a pharaoh's tomb to be exhumed after years of hibernation. The company also dispatches DJs who will play hit music and take requests at a variety of events, including weddings, school functions, and corporate get-togethers.
Inside the kitchen at Gramma Mora’s, cooks flip sizzling shrimp and assemble four-cheese enchiladas, preparing succulent entrees that earned the restaurant the title of Best Tex-Mex Eatery in Buffalo from the readers of Artvoice in 2011. Seated at tables inset with tile, diners can taste dishes made from century-old recipes passed down through the Mora family. A vibrant mural of a Mayan pyramid in a lush jungle decorates one wall, next to guests consuming pork smothered in green-chili sauce or steak chimichangas. Caramel-glazed flan and lime margaritas provide notes of sweetness for diners who otherwise would have had to carry scoops of ice cream to the table in their pockets.
A longtime official photographer for United States Synchronized Swimming, Migz Media's head photographer designed a device that permitted him to snap underwater shots while staying dry on the pool deck. He now harnesses that same ingenuity while framing clients at a variety of sessions and events. Migz Media's talents run the gamut from capturing action shots at sporting events to framing candid wedding moments without having to disguise cameras as flower girls. Rather than taking weeks to develop images, they produce prints with a full-service touchscreen printing system they bring to each event, or e-mail purchased shots to clients. Studio shoots take advantage of a 30'x20' greenscreen that stretches from floor to ceiling—which photographers employ to digitally insert a choice of more than 10,000 backgrounds that includes still images and animated loops.
