Like a good relationship or a flower with a fertilizer addiction, Shador is growing. The staff of sugaring experts and aestheticians recently migrated to a new space, which has meant an upgrade in facilities and the ability to offer massages. Each service, from botanically based detoxifying body wraps to custom facials, helps to beautify and relax clients. For hair removal, the staff eschews the discomfort of hot wax in favor of a natural sugaring serum that pulls hair out in the direction of growth, and favored strands are magnified through the individual application of synthetic or mink eyelash extensions.

Smoke and fierce heat rise from a battalion of Weber gas grills and Big Green Egg smokers as barbecue docents line up in front of them, ready to wrangle rafts of raw meat into expertly grilled, smoked, and sauced feasts. In classes that range from three to seven hours, Bay Area BBQ and Grilling School's instructors impart their knowledge of sauces and marinades. They also teach students how to brine, smoke, and grill ingredients such as ribs, turkeys, chickens, peppers, pork, and veggies, all of which are provided. The four dudes in charge have been leading classes since 1998. Head honcho Stu McMullen draws upon myriad cooking classes and international travels to develop exciting recipes, while "sauce king" Eric Viken introduces sauces that can enchant palates and save accidentally overcooked meats. The barbecue experts hold classes on site or in private backyards, enabling the family cat to finally learn to do something productive with its hunting gifts.

Family patriarch Nordy Rockler opened the doors of his first store in 1954 to supply his fellow craftsmen with knowledge, friendly advice, and a large selection of tools for at-home woodworking projects. Now, the chain of retail outlets brims with more than 20,000 tools and specialized woodworking equipment. Next to a steely rainbow of hinges, casters, and screws, a supply of lumber and exotic hardwoods provides planks for building tree houses or just leaving around as a warning to uncooperative trees. The tenor buzz of power tools operated by newly knowledgeable guests drifts from educational sessions on operating equipment and woodworking.
