Though the menu at Lambsbread Vegan Cafe may appear to be the same as at any soul food place, things aren't what they seem. That's because the chefs don't use any animal products when they make their dishes. They use tempeh, seitan, and vegetables to create options such as the Spare No ribs, mock BLT, and tempeh Reuben. These come paired with complementary sides, such as the okra gumbo, kale, and curry potatoes, all of which are made with no animal products.
Meditating Massage Wellness Studio's one-client-at-a-time approach is evident upon entering its cozy studio. A spread of complimentary beverages quenches palates before services begin while guests begin their journey to relaxation. Mediating Massage Wellness Studio offers a variety of nail care services ranging from short treatments to longer, luxurious treatments. Simple manicures and pedicures last from 15 to 20 minutes, while Lush manicures and pedicures last 30 to 45 minutes. Recently, the studio has added a new nail technician, Moe, who focuses primarily on waterless pedicures and natural nail care.
The studio also focuses on massage services. As one of the skilled massage therapists finishes up a current session, aromatherapy and soothing music waft through the air to help visitors decompress. Services, such as a signature holistic harmony massage typically combine both relaxing and therapeutic modalities.

At New York's Famous Hotdogs, chefs dish out baskets brimming with chicken, fajitas, hot dogs, and burgers under the shade of the mobile stand’s blue-and-white umbrella. Patrons munch on catfish nuggets or wings that snuggle together and await a bedtime story under a choice of 18 house-made toppings, ranging from spicy mango sauce to a Greek blend of peppers, onions, and garlic. More than a dozen traditional condiments also stand by to lather a fried-fish sandwich in sweet relish or a 100% beef hot dog in sauerkraut. Seasoned fries jackknife into ketchup, and drinks quench thirst more effectively than a horror movie quells the urge to buy an old house.
Crazy Dash Digital Adventures's "dashes" are sort of like walking tours?if walking tours were guided by smartphones and sometimes involved kissing a parking meter. Dash participants chart a course between 20+ checkpoints, following a route mapped out on their phones. The checkpoints range from historical sites to hole-in-the-wall boutiques; at each one, teams of two to four work together to answer trivia questions, collect clues for the race's culminating question, and pose for wacky pictures that can earn them bonus points. The contest-like setup ignites competitive spirits, but along the way, racers also learn about local history and hot spots.
At Gyrotonic Vista, stressful, body-damaging workouts are shunned in favor of nonimpact, muscle-toning exercise using the Gyrotonic Expansion System, a fitness method founded by Romanian ballet dancer, gymnast, swimmer, and yogi Juliu Horvath. Maxing out at 20 muscle-molders, Gyrokinesis classes employ fluid movements reminiscent of yoga to oxygenate the body, loosen the musculature, and increase flexibility. In an open, 1,600-square-foot studio, a master or certified trainer guides each session, beginning with a spinal warm-up atop a stool before moving to the floor for an ab, hip, and back unlocking. Over the course of roughly 100 relaxing yet sweat-inducing movements, joint health can improve, blood can flow more freely, and contortion contests against acrobats can be won more easily.
