In order to manage a collection of almost 10,000 libations, the staff at Sal's Beverage World must know their stuff when it comes to wine, spirits, and beers. The massive shop stocks shelves with bottles of wine from popular labels such as The Naked Grape and Snap Dragon, as well as 90+ point wines from Chateau Angelus. The inventory also boast more than 2,000 beers artfully brewed by domestic and foreign companies including Hoppin' Frog and Bear Republic craft breweries, while down the liquor aisles shelves are lined with a hearty collection of whiskeys, cognacs, and aperitifs, such as the Italian Cynar and Pernod 80 Proof. Sal's drink specialists also provide party planning services, regular beverage tastings, and run the Bacchus Wine Club, which offers members access to exclusive tastings of wine and ambrosia.
Chicagoland Tire tweaks rode-worn autos with a slew of maintenance and repair services. Keeping each engine's insides pristinely purring, an oil change replaces sludgy liquids with up to 5 quarts of fresh lube, and a new oil filter protects the horseless carriage's engine from contaminants and unsavory language. Mechanics then examine the brakes to ensure they possess the proper power to safely support the car. For road-bound rubber, a tire rotation pits spheres against one another in a friendly game of musical chairs as each wheel moves to a different position to evenly distribute wear and quell whiny wheels tired of sitting in the backseat.
Jump ropes hiss through the air, spinning around fighters conditioning for an upcoming match. Sparring partners send each other to the ropes of the blue and white boxing ring with furious blows. Green mats cushion the full-body takedowns during Brazilian jujitsu matches. Top Notch Fitness & Boxing's entire facility echoes with grunts of effort and the cries of coaches demanding one more rep, punch, hop, or kick from each student as they hone their skills and strength in mixed martial arts and conditioning classes. The staff of fighters pushes students—beginners and professionals alike—to perfect their combat technique while shedding pounds, building muscle, and testing whether punching bags can feel pain.
Since 1989, Play It Again Sports has been keeping sports green, recycling gently used athletic equipment into new-to-you gear. Products from brands such as Nike, Adidas, and Wilson make up each store's enormous selection of new and recycled gear, which is replenished daily with goods for a wide selection of sports that ranges from baseball and football to snowboarding, skis, and ice skates. Treadmills and exercise bikes equip bodies with muscular suits of armor, and pintsize and adolescent equipment arms youngsters with protective padding until they eat enough bologna to grow muscles of their own. Knowledgeable staffers man each location, ready to answer questions, arrange gear deliveries or pick-ups, and even sharpen skates or wax snowboards. To ensure their stock remains robust, they also encourage athletes to collect their lightly used gear—including bicycles—and bring it into a local store to either sell or trade.
