Biz X Magazine Nov/Dec 2022 Vol 25 Issue 10
ON THE COVER — On Cloud Nine— 18
A whole quarter of a century has gone by and the Biz X Awards are still going strong! For 2022 the theme: Always Look For The Silver Lining in Every Cloud represents the traditional 25th anniversary gift of silver and a catch phrase relating to the winners, nominees and the magazine itself, seeing the positive in every situation and doing whatever it takes to remain profitable. In fact, this whole edition is filled with success stories from award winners in the cover story to other articles profiling companies/organizations recognizing special anniversaries. It’s given us all a reason to celebrate and float on cloud nine!
PHOTO CREDITS MODEL: Katarina J., is an alumna of Biz X magazine’s cover photos. Instead of planting a flag on the moon as she did for the 2012 cover (left ; stars and space theme) she has traded in her astronaut suit for this glamorous sequin designed, silver dress that glimmers when she walks!
DRESS/TIARA SUPPLIER: This A-line gown (with a short liner that gives the bottom of the skirt a see-through effect allowing the fabric to have different dimensions) is from a private label that is exclusive to His & Hers Bridal, 828 Ottawa Street, Windsor (HisAndHersBridal.com). Tiara made by Bridal Classics. A special shout out goes to Nelly Semaan, Owner of His & Hers Bridal for her assistance. Congratulations, as well, on celebrating over 50 years in business!

16 Food For Thought: South Windsor’s Penalty Box Restaurant – The first anniversary of a business is a big deal, perhaps even “delight-full” you might say in this case! South Windsor’s Penalty Box, 525 Cabana Road East (designed-built by the Rosati Group) has been serving up the company’s famous Chicken Delight and plenty more yummy take-out choices, from its 2,600 square foot eatery for the past year . . . and their customers are loving every bite!

60 The Parenting Biz: Light Up Your Life – The holidays are best spent with the family, decorating the house, having friends and relatives over, shopping for the perfect gift and of course, getting out to the festivities in the region. Across Windsor Essex it’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas with all the twinkling lights, parades, concerts, meet and greets with Santa, and more you can attend. One shining example is Winter Fest when downtown Windsor streets light up each night (2021 photo courtesy of Jason Toner/ Tourism Windsor Essex Pelee Island). So load up the family sleigh and jingle all the way to every event you can!
