What small businesses do you want to see move into Lakewood?
With Small Business Saturday here, we recently posed this question on the Lakewood Patch Facebook page: If you could open any small business in town, what would it be and why? Readers had some great answers. One reader said she'd like to open a childrens playland and coffeeshop "for mommies and daddies." Another reader suggested an indoor golf center, but joked only "after ruling out a hair salon/yoga studio/pizza shop. Whle another though that a comedy club/restaurant would work in the old Westwood theater. If you could open any small business in Lakewood, what would it be? Tell us in the comments!

Hotel and Leisure Advisors is an industry-leading consulting firm for hotels, amusement parks and water parks all over the country. However, the Lakewood-based business is getting pretty good at making gingerbread houses, too. A half-dozen of the company’s employees spent nearly 50 hours building the one on display at Rozi’s Wine House on Detroit Avenue. Appropriately sticking with the hotel-and-leisure theme, the company built an elaborate ski lodge made of gingerbread — with all the trimmings. Last year, the team built a holiday-themed gingerbread waterpark. These aren’t your run-of-the-mill gingerbread houses.
