The Catering Brigade, accredited by the American Culinary Federation, comprises professional cooks and chefs, each of whom hails from a unique culinary background. Led by Chef Doc, a Le Cordon Bleu College of Culinary Arts graduate who started his first catering business at 16, the staff practices the mantra, "If we can't pronounce we, we don't use it." Thus, their dishes—be they for weddings, corporate events, or romantic dinners at home—are created without chemicals, additives, or Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious.
After honing his skills as a professional mover for 16 years in Seattle, Washington, and Vallejo, California, Myron Davis decided to build his own company. The resulting business—Annabells Movers, named after Davis's beloved great aunt Annabell Singleton—handles both commercial and residential moves, whether they're local or long-distance. Davis implements a wide array of skills and tricks of the trade to ensure jobs run smoothly and safely, hiring only AMSA-certified movers and taking great care to protect living spaces and furnishings with padding, floor runners, and force fields. Once all the door frames, floors, and corners are prepped, the technicians swiftly and safely haul away boxes and furniture.
Whether by suds, professional polish, leather conditioners, or tinted window film, the technicians at Miami Auto Spa keep cars looking sharp enough to make a stop sign blush. All washes are performed by hand. Details, with the help of Wolfgang sealants, Klasse polishes, and shampoos, reach every crevice of the car and transform it into a shiny, new-looking ride. Cars don’t need to be dirty to benefit here, though. Window tinting gives the car a sleek look and the driver protection and privacy, and rim repairs further add to the car’s overall aesthetic.
