Aside from being a premier venue for watching sports, Saloon on Calhoun is a bacon utopia with a daily all-you-can-eat bacon happy hour, bacon-infused vodka, and a menu of bacon-accented pub classics. Widescreen TVs speckle the wooden walls throughout, allowing patrons to catch game replays and Martha Stewart knitting segments from the bar, pool tables, or Internet jukebox. As darts bust cork, thin-crust pizzas present guests with slatherings of homemade sauces and bacon burgers, wraps, and beer-battered fish emit puffs of steam in solidarity with the ears of infuriated cartoon characters. In addition to weekly trivia, karaoke, and live blues events, a fully stocked bar with 15 craft beers tests the limits of patrons' tolerance for fun.

The personal trainers at Vita Fitness work in tandem with licensed physical therapists to design custom regimens for clients of all fitness levels. After evaluating posture and weak areas in the body and appraising flexibility with a Twister test, the expert shape-shifters draw up workouts that may employ Woodway treadmills, Keiser strength equipment, free weights, and balls. Guests also get advice on weight loss and nutrition, as well as sport-specific training tips for everything from running to racquetball to underwater jai-alai. Six trainers on staff at the 3rd Ward gym and more at the Fox Point location easily accommodate schedules for early birds, lunchtime larks, and nighthawks. On-site extras include private lockers, showers, a smoothie bar, and off-street parking.
LASIK surgeon to the Globetrotters and fixed-vision patient himself, Dr. Mitchell Jackson of Jacksoneye has performed more than 30,000 blade-free procedures, facilitated by the precise IntraLase flap-creation technique. Dr. Jackson tailors each LASIK procedure to individuals with a pre-op consultation, during which a computer imaging system details each eye's contours, smoothness, corneal regularity, and ability to turn mortals into stone. On the day of surgery, patients and their designated drivers spend roughly 2.5 hours at the office, though the actual process takes only about 10 minutes per eye. The IntraLase system creates and adjusts a corneal flap, forming microscopic, subsurface bubbles to provide a more exact fold than possible with handheld tools. Patients receive an oral sedative and topical anesthetic, though minimal discomfort may be experienced in the 12–36 hours following surgery, such as an itchiness likened to a trapped eyelash or the dawning realization that one's spouse is actually a coat rack. With the exception of swimming, patients generally return to their normal routine within two days.
As a branch of the not-for-profit Advocate Health Care system, the Advocate Condell Centre Club has filled two 60,000-square-foot locations with fitness amenities for exercisers of all ages and ability levels, captained by professional and welcoming staff members. The club's philosophy follows the Advocate network's holistic approach, taking on a mission of all-over wellness with features for exercise, rehabilitative therapy, sports performance, and spa services. Much like a territorial wolverine, each of the facilities' elements—from a trove of resistance-training machines to a demonstration kitchen for cooking classes—occupies its own specialized area. Lake County magazine and Libertyville Patch have highlighted the club for its weight-loss systems and free training program for cancer patients, respectively.
