SM 011/10/03

Voice Over: Andrea Cornwall of Clay writes, "Dear Chandler Automotive, I was driving by your lot on Sunday in my old car, and I realized it might be time for something new. I even saw one car I really liked as I passed by, but then as I drove, I began to think about all the arrangements that would have to be made... the financing, the insurance, and all those confusing DMV forms. I like that car, but I don't know if I have time to take care of all the paperwork right now. What do you recommend? Best Wishes, Andrea." Well, Andrea, you'll be happy to know that Chandler Automotive is all about eliminating the hassles. That's why they have bank financing available right on the lot. It's why they'll handle the insurance arrangements for you. It's why they fill-out all those DMV forms for you-so you don't have to. All you have to do is browse in undisturbed comfort till you find exactly the car you want. And Chandler Automotive makes it easy and affordable. Andrea, thanks for writing, and thanks for shopping Chandler Automotive, just past Northern Pines Golf Course on route 31 in Cicero.

Karen: Are you alright? You look… tired.
Announcer: Time is your enemy. Every day, another wrinkle. But if you're tired of looking tired, discover what Doctor Halliday can do for you…
Lois: I had a lot of wrinkles on my forehead; I had horrible eyelids that hung down so my eyes would hardly open. Wasn't always a pretty picture! I had Really bad spider veins. A lot of people who have rosatia don't even leave their homes, they're so embarrassed about it. So I've had that eliminated through the laser surgery with the Candela laser. That, and then the Botox. And I've had Radience, too. The Bluffoplasties; people were surprised that I didn't have the fine lines or the wrinkles or the bags. Such positive feedback feels really good. Doctor Halliday really does a wonderful job. I see someone that looks like the younger me. I feel good. I feel good about myself. Yeah.

VO: Trio would like to illustrate the fundamental difference between civilization and sophistication. "Happy hour", while certainly a civilized phenomenon, is not necessarily sophisticated. For that, we look to the traditional cocktail hour. Same thing you say? Not true. The cocktail hour is a pause after work for refreshments, to give cherished friends time to arrive before moving on to a sumptuous meal, a memorable experience to be treasured with friends and family. Civilized, yes. Sophisticated? Indubitably!
Trio sports a traditional Italian steak and seafood menu, approached with a non-fussy simplicity, encouraging you to relax, have fun, and enjoy. West Fayette Street in Armory Square; Trio… The possibilities are endless. Trio's Bistecca… featuring aged U.S.D.A. corn-fed midwestern beef. …Juicy, tender creations elevating Steak to a work of art. Whether you choose the Bistecca di Napoli, the Gorgonzola encrusted New York Strip, Stuffed Filet Mignon, or any of the eight signature steaks at Trio, prepare yourself for one delicious meal. Trio takes justifiable pride in their traditional cocktails that transport one to a simpler time. So go ahead, order a Sloe Gin Fizz, a Bloody Mary, or a Boilermaker. Trio offers eight signature cocktails, and nine signature martini's, made from the choicest ingredients. No tuxedo necessary; jeans are fine… all you need is an appreciation of the better things in life.
