Nestled in Homewood, Meat and Three Cafeteria keeps American culinary traditions alive with home-cooked comfort food for customers either dining in or just passing through. Just as a dining-room table hosts different portions for all tastes, the menu features an array of country-style meats and vegetarian-friendly sides from which patrons can customize their own platters. Dishes such as beef tips, chicken and dumplings, and fried catfish join steaming servings of sautéed squash, fried okra, or yams, and desserts such as fresh pecan pie keep sweet teeth from storming out of their gums in envy.

After punching the code to gain admittance, those in need of the services of a high-end tailor head to the second-floor shop of Best Fit where, more often than not, owner Lyudmila Sletkova stands ready to greet them. The Russian native has operated Best Fit for almost 20 years on fashionable Newbury Street, where even well-made garments need tweaking and wedding gowns need fitting. Her team of specialists can handle every kind of clothing for both men and women, including suits, jackets, jeans, coats, dresses and gowns, but it specializes in bridal alterations for the big day. From simple hemming to sophisticated and complex re-styling, there is no job too small or too big for the shop. Clients can chat with the tailors in a wide, open room overlooking Newbury Street to discuss their needs and large fitting rooms make changing in and out of garments a comfortable experience.
Six years ago Monica Day began photographing families with a camera she purchased at a pawnshop. Since then, she's built an aesthetic around using natural light to capture candid shots of infants curled up in milk buckets, couples sharing a smile, and seniors posing at a skate park. When she's not snapping on-location shots, she specializes in in-studio glam and boudoir shoots, whose sultry results she preserves with prints, digital images, and books. Through Skype sessions, in-person consultations, or instructional videos, Monica also mentors budding photographers, helping them out with compositional tips, such as using a crane to turn frowning people upside down.
