Places with Dominion card names

Here is a challenge: find a local business that has at least 3 dominion cards in its title.

I've seen one with two words, the lovely village bazaar in NYC. http://maps.google.com/maps/place?um=1&ie=UTF-8&q=village+bazaar+nyc&fb=1&gl=us&hq=village+bazaar&hnear=0x89c24fa5d33f083b:0xc80b8f06e177fe62,New+York,+NY&cid=3391694604985307097

Alternatively, find a two card combo on a real business that is better than village bazaar ;P.

Three cards in the title was almost easy.  Given we (used to) have National City Bank here in my town, I figured I'd throw "City Bank" into Google.  Here we go:

I can get four if it can be an event instead of a registered business:
Garden City Literary Festival Workshops

I wish it had been a Library Festival.

But the card is "Gardens", not "Garden", right?  Here's City University of Seattle Library.

If we're going with events, then perhaps the most famous is the Pawnee Harvest Festival.

EDIT: (...which was known for its Curse.)

A buffet is kinda like a Feast, right?

Ran across this just now, quite by accident:

Old Dominion University Village - http://www.oduvillage.com/merchants.shtml

Bonus points for using the name of the game itself?

A related game is trying to see how many Dominion card names you can find among the London Underground station names:

Bank
Monument
White City
Canary Wharf
Ruislip Gardens
Shepherd's Bush Market
Baron's Court
London Bridge
Whitechapel

Any others?

How about Vineyard Haven, Massachusetts? It is in Dukes County.

It has a Library http://www.vhlibrary.org.

A puppet Festival. http://www.mvgazette.com/article.php?26334

A Chapel. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:1900_SeamensChapel_VineyardHaven_MA_SeaBreeze_v13.png

And who could forget the Vineyard Haven Wharf? http://history.vineyard.net/wharf.htm

I wonder if there was ever a Pirate Ship nearby?

Also, VH is officially a Village, municipally speaking!

I checked its Wikipedia page.  It refers to the community as a village, and also mentions that it's in Dukes County.

Congratulations for repeating things that KMueller and Meej already said.

Well played, Donald, though I'm unsure whether that's a legal play under the current rule system.  With Whitechapel in play you need Marble Arch or St. Paul's in play as well.  Maybe you're still playing under the 2008 Bethnal Green conventions?
