With the help of the Rid-All Green Partnership, the people of Cleveland's Kinsman neighborhood have transformed an abandoned plot of land into one of the city's most vibrant urban farms. The oasis is a truly local endeavor. The compost that grows the fruits and veggies is made of coffee grounds from area cafes, discarded scraps from local food banks, and wood chips from Cleveland's forestry department. In addition to the greenhouses and hoop-houses that characterize the lot, Ridall has also set up a local fishery that aquafarms black tilapia.

Royal Clean helps clients achieve spotless homes and vehicles with a trio of professional cleaning services that can eviscerate dirt and debris from carpets, home exteriors, and cars. Every walkway area rug will emerge from a carpet cleaning looking as good as when it was originally woven, while spot cleaning takes care of stains that have proven difficult to remove. During pressure washing, techs use a pressurized jet of water to blast mold from sidewalks, porches, and siding. Meanwhile, car detailing uses a foam treatment to remove dirt from exteriors and a vacuuming and shampooing treatment to ensure the interior will make dashboard hula dancers jiggle with joy.
The cooks at Rib Kings of Cleveland are dedicated to bringing the sweet and smoky flavors of the south to hungry Clevelanders. Classic down-home barbecue plates come piled with baby back ribs, pulled pork, or smoked turkey, plus a choice of two sides like collard greens or bourbon baked beans.
During the day, huge skylights cast a glow over Zelma Watson-George Roller Skating Facility's big, bright, festive rink; in the evenings, glow sticks and other fun accessories light up the crowd as kids and families roll by. Most days, contemporary hip hop and R&B provide the soundtrack, although occasional themed skates turn over the sound system to the likes of Michael Jackson. The center's cafe helps skaters recharge with wings, pizza, hotdogs, and cotton candy, and the arcade bleeps and buzzes with both video games and redemption games spooling out tickets that can be exchanged for prizes or added to an investment portfolio.
LashTown Cleveland bedecks eyelids with lashes according to the client's desired level of drama—natural, DivaLash, or Hypnotizer extensions progressively bump up the volume. The shop uses lashes made from mink and silk in order to lend eyes a sultry, but not extraterrestrial, flair. And the aestheticians at LashTown don't stop at peepers. They also offer facials, such as the plant peel, which increases firmness and reduces wrinkles, and eyebrow tinting, which darkens brows in order to lend greater definition to features.
