This has gotten use through the sweltering heat this summer. It's $4 for residents for two hours on the ice. During the week there are less than a handful of people, but the weekends the rink is packed. I believe if you rent the skates it is $2. The ice is always resurfaced in the middle of the session to get out the grooves.
A forgotten diner favorite. They specialize in sandwiches that are made of seasoned ground beef. Kind of like a sloppy joe, without the tomato sauce. I don't know what the seasoning is, but it is good. Breakfast is served all day and they have specials at reasonable prices. The only draw back is that they are not open for dinner.
This place is expensive but it's worth it once in a while because the food is so good. The dinner is always filling. You get soup, salad, shrimp appetizer, fried rice, and your choice of shrimp, chicken or steak. Also they have an extensive sushi menu prepared by real talented chefs.
Mary's Market serves American and Continental fare in a casual setting. The extensive menu features salads, soups, pastas, pizzas and wraps. On the sweeter side, there is an assortment of freshly baked desserts, including cheesecakes, pies and tortes. Their sandwiches a little pricy, but worth it. Plan to spend over $20 for lunch for 2.
This place is located just off of I-90 and the Riverside Blvd. exit. Fun course that goes up a huge erupting volcano. They have a full arcade inside as well as a concession stand. What's neat is they have soccer cages which feed you a soccer ball like a pitching machine would. There's make-shift goal net on the top of the feeders you can kick at. I had never seen one before. Loads of fun. Also, you can hit softballs or baseballs in the cages.
Originally, I went into this business to purchase a jug for pocket change. The staff was courteous enough to just give it to me. In my guilt I felt obligated to make a purchase, so I bought a 5 gallon jug and filled it for my fish tank. They have a pretty neat setup, there is multiple filling stations where you fill your own bottles. Also, they do free water testing. Home Environment Center also offers a full range of softener services which I havent used but come as highly recommended from others.
Lundgren's is the local go-to place for cameras and accessories. I took all my old Minolta lenses and bodies to purchase an autofocus model. The employee was very knowledgable and helped me find a camera to fit my needs. He showed me a setup that was a bit over my price range, then said you can get the same quality by buying the body and another lenses seperate. It saved me over $100. It was nice to see someone looking to save me some money.
Within the last two years, Benson Stone moved into an old warehouse which is a lot larger than their old location. Everything is much more orgainized and displayed better. They have wonderful displays on mulitple levels. Also, there is a cafe inside of the store with good coffee. It is a bit pricy but the work that I have seen in my friend's house it was well worth it.
This store was recommended to us when we bought our condo. The prices were very reasonable, the salesman was not pushy, and their select was extensive. Our installation was promised and the installers were on time and didnt leave a mess behind. We only bought hardwood floors from them, but we will be going back for carpet when we finish our basement.
This place is very inexpensive for kenneling. We were only charged $10 per day to board our large dog. The owner frequently takes the dogs out to get let them run around. Each dog has an indoor and outdoor. Also, there is a mat so the dog isn't sleeping on the ground.
PROS: The owner is very nice and friendly.
CONS: The location is a bit tricky to get to.
