Mama D's is a nice small scale and casual Italian restaurant. The calzones are really good here! Stuffed with ricotta and mozarella cheese! Thery have a "lite" menu, Salads, excellent baked dishes (you have to wait a little longer for these),
Seafood dishes are offered as well. Mama D raised a family for 38 years cooking for her husband and 7 children in New York Now that's experience!
Pricing is moderate at this restaurant, but the quality is top notch.
The Space Needle restaurant in Seattel is a must! Its very pricey but the admission to the observation deck is free when dining at the restaurant.
Everything on the menu is ala carte. We were fortunate to enjoy prime rib special for two that included a salad and side. The lunar orbitor dessert has been served there since 1965. Its and ice cream sundae that fogs up around the edges. FUN! the restaurant rotates 360 degrees and you can enjoy a view of the city!
Newport Driving School has been very helpful in teaching our kids to drive. My daughter went to the classes, but my son was able to take the classes online. The business is family owned and send mature and caring instructors out for behind-the- wheel. They will also pick up your student from home or school. Both kids passed the test the first time! The instructors make it a point to take your student on the DMV test routes so that they can point out things they need to watch for.

Dr. Tischler helped me through a very tough time with my ankle last year. I had Tenosynovitis is my ankle (very inflamed tendon) He was very conservative in his approach. A cortisone injection was out of the question because he said it could rupture the tendon. He suggested eventual surgery but did not insist on it. I had casts and braces and other measures to calm the injury down. After time and his encouragement I finally got better. Its nice to have a doctor thats not "surgery happy" Dr. Tischler has also been the team doctor for a local high school football team. Hes a straight talker, no nonesence kind of doctor.
Young Seconds is a great place to find good quality dressy clothing for children. If your child is in Cotillion, this the place to visit first. They have alot of "gently used" dresses, blazers, and dress slacks. My son grew so fast that it seemed like every year I would drop off some clothes for consigment and pick up some thing new that was needed. I have found some pretty cool Reyn Spooner shirts for boys as well.
