Behind red slats resembling barnyard doors, a weathered painting of the US flag proudly hangs, exuding patriotic charm. These rustic touches carry over to O’Shea American Grill’s menu of hearty comfort food lovingly created from scratch. Though the majority of its pages broadcast traditional American eats such as ribs, burgers, and steak, the menu also branches out into dishes such as pizzas and paella packed with chicken, shrimp, and chorizo.

The laws of physics seem to bend at Hotspot Glass Studio. Some visit to watch artists melt, twist, blow, and shatter their one-of-a-kind medium, and others get their gloves dirty in a class or workshop. The studio offers group sessions, private instruction, curricula for different experience levels, and a few courses just for teens. Once students have been endowed with a bit of glass-bending know-how and have learned to exhale fire, they can rent studio time from Hotspot. Many guests are content to bring their own masterpieces home, but for those who want works of professional craftsmanship, the studio also accepts commissions. In addition, owner Dylan Cotton and his fellow Hotspot artists craft light fixtures, centerpieces, and more to customers' specifications.

In 1976, educator, musician, and kinesiologist Robin Wes longed for a children's gym that prioritized personal growth over competition. Unveiled at a time when physical-education classes pushed students to focus almost exclusively on winning, Robin's program was swiftly adopted and is now used in more than 300 Little Gyms worldwide. Robin still pens original music to accompany lessons, which engage whippersnappers aged 4 months to 12 years with gymnastics, dance, karate, and parent and child activities.

Each of The Little Gym's classes introduces simple movements that sharpen motor skills and set brains whirring, allowing kids to progress at their own pace until they can finally build a computer out of macaroni and glitter. Staff members strive to build a base for lifelong social skills and self-assurance with each exercise, including activities rooted purely in fun, such as summer camps or birthday parties, which helped The Little Gym to earn title of #1 Birthday Chain in Parents Magazine.

The Edge's Revolution program is an eight-week body-change contest that fuses nutritional guidance, personal training, and weekly group exercise sessions. Trainers document your metamorphosis with before-and-after measurements and photos, and by meticulously chiseling fitness goals into stone. Start sculpting with one personal-training and Pilates session, then sweat in weekly group workouts that prevent plateaus by pushing boundaries like a gerrymandering student council president. An included nutrition guide with DVD joins body sculptors on fitness sojourns with eating tips to supplement gym work. Revolutionaries also get access to a community that spans from the gym to an online group, providing a resource for advice, support, and camaraderie.
