What started for founder Bill Larson as a small pizza parlor in 1959 Menlo Park, California, has grown to over 500 high-quality, innovative restaurants today. For over 50 years, the pizza aficionados at each Round Table Pizza location have been mixing, kneading, and rolling out their pizza dough?made from wheat grown on family farms in Idaho?from scratch every morning. Cooks sling pies throughout the day, an aromatic process that begins when they slather disks in zesty tomato sauce, made from selectively-picked tomatoes, followed quickly by the application of whole milk mozzarella cheese, with premium aged cheddar cheese and provolone added in their famous three-cheese blend. After the fresh-cut vegetables and premium meats crown each pie, a trip into the super-hot ovens follows, a place that shimmers with heat and pride as it creates a browned, bubbling masterpiece. The menu includes signature specialty pizzas such as the King Arthur's Supreme, a Mediterranean-inspired assemblage of pepperoni, linguica, green peppers, yellow onions, black olives, three cheeses, and Italian dry salami, unimpressed by its neighbors' slapstick antics. The Wombo Combo quickly earns a pass for its bizarre name with a mouthwatering combo of bacon, pepperoni, Italian sausage, mushrooms, green onions, roma tomatoes, and artichoke hearts.
Dr. Sherry Fong?s interest in holistic medicine came about after a heartbreaking diagnosis: her 94-year-old grandmother had cancer. The news came in 1994, before the Internet age, so Sherry spent countless hours poring over medical and nutrition books to study every possible way to care for the woman who had raised her. Her grandmother eventually recovered from the disease and lived to be almost 100 years old. This experience inspires Dr. Fong?s work today to assist women with holistic anti-aging, weight loss, detoxification, and healthy living at La Vitalitee. Her offices in San Francisco and Daly City both aim to empower women to take control of their weight, health, and aging process with body-sculpting treatments, and skin-tightening services that can turn back time more effectively than writing "1987" on every page in a day planner.

When Forrest Folen says he believes in a mind-and-body approach to fitness, he isn’t referring to pseudo-spiritual workouts. Rather, he is drawing from the simple advice given to him by his grandmother: “Take care of your body, and your body will take care of your mind. Take care of your mind, and your mind will take care of your life.” His partner Roy Schuhmacher, on the other hand, comes at fitness from a strictly physical angle. Fueled by a personal goal to become a bodybuilder when he was younger, he turned to scientific methods and empirical data to craft his regimens. This research eventually led him to the slow and steady approach to bulking up that he uses today. In 2008, both Folen and Schuhmacher joined forces, bringing their unique mix of perspectives and exercise approaches to the public at Fit for Life Solutions.
Through their studio, the two trainers slim bodies with large group boot-camp sessions, tame waistlines with Next Level personal training, and accelerate heart rates during intensive small group exercises that incorporate kettlebells and industrial-grade defibrillators.
At Fitness Therapy the dedicated trainers believe total well-being stems from mental and physical harmony. They strive to help their clients reach this state of wellness with not only physical training, but an understanding of how it affects every area of their lives, from preventing injury to completing everyday tasks. Their holistic approach?blending training and education?encompasses each of their group-fitness offerings, including TRX suspension training, which pits guests against their own body weight with a system of stretchy bands, and circuit training, which combines strength training and aerobics drills to carve lean bodies. To shake up fitness regimens, students can frantically kick their way to wellness in cardio kickboxing and shimmy off excess calories in Zumba dance cardio. In each session, students make use of an arsenal of equipment, including weight sleds, kettlebells, footwork ladders, and cast-iron tap shoes.
In 1937, something hot, delicious, and glazed rolled through the sleepy town of Winston-Salem, North Carolina. Seventy-seven years later, Vernon Rudolph's secret doughnut recipe lives on within the hundreds of Krispy Kreme locations scattered across the globe as well as within the Smithsonian Institution National Museum of American History, where Krispy Kreme is heralded as a 20th-century American icon.
The entire doughnut-making process, which customers can view up close and personal at many of Krispy Kreme?s outposts, begins with fresh ingredients and ends with the click of a fluorescent sign bearing the words, "Hot Doughnuts Now." From the original, mold-breaking glazed doughnut to newer doughnut varieties, such as Chocolate Iced with Kreme Filling, Glazed Raspberry Filled, and Glazed Chocolate Cake, each round dainty pairs with piping-hot coffee for a compact snack easily tucked into a pocket or clown shoe.
