A sizzle rings throughout Lou’s Burger House’s kitchen as the cooks toss behemoth 10-ounce burgers onto grills. Nearby, friendly staffers sing and dance while washing dishes or joke with the customers, who lick flaky chicken-pot-pie crust off their forks and tear into barbecue pulled-pork sandwiches. Forks also dig into heaping sides of mac ’n’ cheese, creamed potatoes, and collard greens, as well as sweet-cherry and peach cobbler. Lou’s recently added the barbecue options to its menu—making its slogan, “Our butts will drive you nuts!” finally have more than one meaning.

The Marble Slab Creamery sensory experience begins by just walking past the storefront, where the buttery scent of fresh-baked waffle cones drifts out into the air. Gourmet ice creams are freshly crafted on site from Marble Slab?s original recipe, enticing customer's eyes with a rainbow of colors. Once clients have made a flavor selection, they choose from a smorgasbord of mix-ins, from fresh fruit to nuts to candy and crumbled cookies, which an ice cream chef then hand-folds in atop a frosty marble slab before packing the finished custom-designed flavor masterpiece into a house-made waffle cone.

In addition to procuring hand-held treats, Marble Slab Creamery can send creations home in a variety of other formats, such as ice cream cakes, cupcakes, and hand-packed quarts, or in the capable hands of a catering team for sprucing up special events such a corporate get-togethers or school functions with sundae bars in tow.

Organic and fair-trade ingredients transform into beverages, breakfasts, lunches, and dinners at Pasha Coffee & Tea. Between walls bedecked with original artwork, patrons nestle into plush armchairs to warm up with marbled-froth cappuccinos. Guests also spoon up Oreo frappes heaped with pillowy dollops of whipped cream, as well as coffee that, according to the roasting philosophy printed on the menu, is painstakingly roasted to the optimal degree. Cholula mayo paints crispy bacon slices in the spicy BLT, and pesto and mozzarella accent the italian breakfast melt's stack of ham and tomatoes. And occasionally, the coffee tables, magical beanstalks growing from dropped beans, and mismatched furniture part ways to make room for live music and poetry.:

Cakes By Mac, recently featured in Chattanooga CityScope magazine, serves up handheld confectionary creations, artfully crafted and accessorized with flavorful frosting. The doubly decadent chocolate cupcake topped with fudgy frosting rouses sleeping sweet teeth from cocoa-less slumbers, and strawberry cake tickles tonsils with a strawberry buttercream beret. Cupcake recipients can luxuriate in pillowy white cake blanketed by silky soft buttercream or boost vitamin C with lemon-infused cupcakes and a head of broccoli.

Q&A with Kimberly Gavin, Co-owner

Exercise is challenging, and people frequently give up on their fitness routines. How do you keep clients motivated?

Our trainers keep it fun by changing things up all the time. Whether it's cycling, yoga, or group fitness, each day is different. And we focus on balance in working out?cardio, strength, and flexibility are all part of our program at Thrive.

What's the most radical physical transformation you've seen a client make?

We have a client in his early 60s who has absolutely transformed his body by consistent exercise and training and good nutrition. He credits his personal trainer, but really he's done all the hard work. And it shows.

Sweating to the oldies is acceptable, but sweating to the blues less so. Do you find that certain styles and genres of music generate more intense workouts?

Music motivates movement; there's no question. We have a great mix of instructors who play a wide variety of music, including original mixes from one of our DJ instructors. You'll find rock and roll, jazz, reggae and lots of electronic dance tracks here. And we have a disco ball in the cycle studio.

Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?

Thrive is all about functional fitness?that is, keeping people healthy as they move through all phases of their life. Our clients range in age from rom the twenties to the seventies. Even though their fitness needs differ, their goals are basically the same: to stay healthy and fit. It's our challenge to help them. We think we do a great job; at least, they tell us that we do.
