Many of FoamOrder's organic mattresses swaddle sleepers in Natural Sense organic foam crafted from rubber-tree sap and free-trade clouds. The all-natural fibers of the mattresses—which come in five levels of firmness—encourage restful, stress-free slumber by resisting dust mites, mold, and the temptation to cheat on the SATs. Customers can clothe skinny twins ($850.07–$1,698.50) in certified-organic-wool mattress protectors with water-resistant, needle-punched fibers ($59.95–$98.85 for a twin), and teens sleep in style with full bed sets that include a headboard ($129), box springs ($195), and a bed frame ($54.95). Floorboard-phobic foam-lovers can hoist beds out of harm's way with a Captain’s bed frame ($780.80 for a queen), which stands 15.25 inches off the ground, eliminating the need to memorize lengthy levitation spells.

When it comes to photographing weddings, Joey Houle doesn't miss a detail. After capturing the look of the morning sky and the prenuptial rituals of the bride and groom, he and a fellow photographer snap shots all the way through the reception's last dance. They amass candid images of newlyweds and their loved ones using a photojournalistic approach and natural light whenever possible. Joey applies the same style to his other sessions, in which he photographs engaged couples, families, and expectant moms.

At Famous Dave’s BBQ, hand-rubbed St. Louis-style spareribs smoke over a hickory fire for 3-4 hours. A generous helping of sweet and sassy sauce—made from Famous Dave’s secret recipe—seals in the ribs’ piquant flavor and also makes appearances on other barbeque specialties including country-roasted chicken and regular or boneless wings. Joining Famous Dave’s menu of barbecue staples are burgers and citrus shrimp fresh from the grill as well as sandwiches, southern sides, and desserts.
