The experienced leather doctors at Dickson's Old Cobbler Shoe Repair apply their nimble hands to all manner of footwear. Cobblers can repair the full soles and heels on a pair of men or women's shoes, repair the corkbed and soles on Birkenstocks, or entirely recraft tattered cowboy boots. Technicians keep leathers looking luxurious with a shine job on boots, purses, and jackets, or heighten shoes up to 1.25 inches so customers can finally reach the height required to vote.

For more than 20 years, Hennessy's has turned first dates into second dates and IRS audits into first dates with its sumptuous lunch and dinner menus. Mid-day office escapees can celebrate with a starter of Hennessy's Maryland crabcakes in warm green Tabasco cream sauce ($7.95) before getting discordant taste buds to harmonize together with mango barbecue Atlantic salmon ($9.95). Dinner diners, meanwhile, can munch on baked brie drizzled with honey and almonds ($8.95), then dive-tackle a cinnamon-red chile black Angus beef filet ($26.95). A glass of wine provides a lovely foreground to the restaurant's romantic backdrop of florid scarlet wallpaper, turreted leatherbound seats, and billowing white tablecloths. And if your sweet tooth refuses to turn off its obnoxious alarm, finish your feast at Hennessy's with a dessert of bread pudding drenched in Grand Marnier sauce.

Dr. Manly Hutchinson has practiced obstetrics and gynecology for more than 30 years, making his mark as one of the pioneers of endoscopic surgery. He brings the same clinical rigor and professional tact to the practice of aesthetics and to the chore of making his bed in the morning. He's assisted by the staff of licensed aestheticians and registered nurses at the Hutchinson Center for Aesthetic Medicine. They include Angela Heaton, a licensed aesthetician with special interest in working with lasers, treating sun-damaged skin, removing tattoos, and performing a range of other treatments. Dr. Hutchinson turns his focus to minimally invasive techniques for smoothing and contouring the body. Aside from performing laser-assisted liposuction, he relies on laser technology to clear skin of wrinkles, unwanted hair, and superficial veins.
