The perfect bagel is only blocks away

With five locations throughout Brownstone Brooklyn and 12 varieties of hand rolled bagels, the perfect bagel is only a few blocks away.

La Bagel Delight has been serving Brooklyn for over 20 years and its bakers and countermen really know what they’re doing. Quick and friendly service gets you in and out in a hurry — and the quality will keep you coming back.

If friends and family do not have a La Bagel Delight nearby, you can ship these delicious, authentic Brooklyn bagels anywhere in the world, with an easy order from their Web site.

They’ll create specialty heroes for under $10 — choices include “the Chicken Fantastic,” which is a spectacular platter of chicken cutlet layered with bacon and melted cheese on a bed of lettuce and tomato; and “the Godfather,” a thick layer of ham, salami, pepperoni, provolone, lettuce, tomato, roasted pepper, oil and vinegar all packed in a sandwich so big that it feels like a mob rubout (hence the name).

Quit Smoking with Dr. Nasso

If trying to quit smoking through nicotine gum, the patch, or going cold turkey isn’t working for you, don’t worry because there is hope in Dr. Frank Nasso’s pain-free auriculotherapy treatment. A former smoker himself, Dr. Nasso had trouble quitting — but when he tried acupuncture, it worked! Now Dr. Nasso is out to help everyone who is going through what he already did, with a quitting program that is believed to have a higher success rate than anything else out there.

Auriculotherapy is a basic form of acupuncture that does not include needles.

Dr. Nasso’s therapy works in three parts — the first deals with the smoker’s appetite, the second speeds up the metabolism and the third curbs sugar cravings.

These three changes happen during the first four-hour session, where almost all of the work is done to relieve the patient of his addiction. After this session, three additional shorter sessions are required, one per month, after which the patient is a successful quitter.

This might all seem far too easy, but as one his patients put it, “Dr. Nasso has unlocked the mystery of quitting smoking.”

Eco-friendly printing

If you think that printing cannot be done in an environmentally friendly fashion, you have never visited Rolling Press.

The company prints with soy and vegetable inks, uses 100-percent recycled paper, is certified by the Forest Stewardship Council, incorporates a chemical-free production process, and uses wind-generated power to produce all paper products.

But Rolling Press is not only known for its “green start.” Perhaps even more impressive are the design experts with a genuine passion for the printed arts who help every customer with questions ranging from invitations, publications, brochures to magazines. Rolling Press was founded in 1998 by the father-and-son team of Eugene and Kam Lee, who have found the perfect balance between tradition and technology. They proudly offer the best of both to each and every costumer.
