Austin Body Contouring has one goal: streamline their patients? silhouettes. To that end, the staff employs a two-pronged approach of laser treatments and dietary supplements. They wield the beams of Zerona Laser Lipo and Lapex LipoLaser systems, designed to flatten fat cells and burn calories, respectively.
El Paso transplants John Dorgan and Conrad Bejarano founded I Luv Video in 1984, and unlike corporate movie-rental stores, their independent store is still thriving. That's because it celebrates classic, indie, and hard-to-find movies, offering patrons an extensive selection of films across a variety of formats.
Unlike watching streaming movies on demand, I Luv Video brings movie lovers together in a real-life social environment, treating visitors to special events such as Cinemondays film screenings, Free Beer Tuesdays, and Spot the Baguette in the French Film Friday. Guests can also chat with fellow film buffs or knowledgable staffers as they browse an ever-growing selection of cult films, underground hits, and big-name titles, all easily pinpointed through the store's online search function. Additionally, the store attracts patrons with its rare vintage toys, movie memorabilia, and films.
The 21st Annual Summer Fan Drive helps low-income individuals avoid the life-threatening dangers of extreme heat by equipping low-income seniors, disabled individuals, and families with children in 11 Central Texas counties with fans and air conditioners. In addition to helping prevent heat exposure, the drive allows more than 250 of the organization's volunteers to identify other unmet needs, such as food, adequate housing, or medical care. Since 1990, the Summer Fan Drive has outfitted Central Texas homes with more than 60,000 fans and 700 air conditioners. Family Eldercare would like to continue to expand its reach and supply as many homes as possible with the means to battle extreme heat this summer. The organization can purchase one fan for $15 and fans can run for as little as two cents an hour while cooling a room by as much as six degrees.
When the first Pizza Patrón store opened in 1986, the Hispanic community felt welcomed by a staff that spoke their language both literally and culturally. Over the years, both the menu and the ever-expanding family of stores has come to reflect this Latin influence, seen in specialty pies such as the La Mexicana with chorizo, ground beef, bell peppers, and jalapenos. A spicy selection of sides includes lime-n-pepper chicken wings and garlic-con-queso wings, and dessert offers the Latin favorite, cinnamon-dusted churros filled with caramel. Additionally, the corporation’s owners are committed to going beyond simply marketing to Hispanic people, and instead, work to create a company that “respects and honors the multifaceted traditions and heritage found within Latin life.”
