The cooks at Sauce’d Pizza & Cocktail House know that the authenticity of a wood-fired pizza can’t be replicated in a standard oven, so they don’t even try. Instead, they heat up their menu’s signature pizzas the old-fashioned way, and, like the architect of the world’s first all-edible skyscraper, top them with surprising fixings such as honey and sliced pears, smoked salmon, or hummus. Paired with the house’s popular mozzarella garlic knots and a tasty cocktail or two, the pizzas evolve into a filling meal best enjoyed alongside live guitar or jazz music.

Though threading primarily deals with hair removal, the real focus of the service is the skin. Many depilation methods extract unwanted strands, but leave skin irritated and subject to wrinkle-producing tugs and yanks. Threading combats these unwanted effects with a 100% cotton thread that loops and uproots unwanted hair, eliminating the need for chemicals that can cause breakouts and require the placement of hazard stickers on faces. Beauty By Thread?s expert technicians wield strings with the utmost precision, creating sultry eyebrow arches and removing hair from upper lips, sideburns, or infringing hair lines.

Threading leaves brows expertly shaped for up to three weeks, and the staff also offer Lizette Mineral eyebrow-makeup kits, which combine 10 shades of water-resistant powders and six stencils that allow clients to maintain beautiful looks at home. Clients can also add an exotic touch to their look with the shop's showcase of ankle bracelets, bangles, and tiaras instead of filling out the endless paperwork required to adopt a pet tiger.

A novice might raise a skeptical eyebrow at a coriander- or sorghum-infused beer, but to craft brewer Erik Schmid, ingredients like these aren’t unusual in the least. At The Brewmeister, Erik teaches small groups of students to concoct liquid refreshments that are both distinctive and tasty. Beer-brewing classes cover the basics of fermentation, proper sanitation practices, and how to funnel beer into bottles or directly into bellies. Though Schmid prepares batches of seasonal ales in brewing classes, he can advise students on any brewing technique.

Those who wish to pursue the art of home brewing can purchase brewing equipment and ingredients such as malts, barley, and hops in The Brewmeister's shop. Schmid also stocks wine-making materials, including a variety of yeasts and rental presses with which to extract juices from grapes or grape-flavored juice boxes.

Heirloom French dressers. An unpolished Patina silver set with an ornate teapot and saucers. A bag of old skeleton keys. An aged wooden box with the words “Café de Paris” painted on it. This is just a sampling of the many treasures that can be unearthed at Burlap and Bees, a vintage store with a distinctly European ambience.

In addition to perusing the antique-stuffed store or attending monthly Market Day events brimming with other vendors, shoppers can learn how to create their own sought-after pieces during workshops. These educational sessions teach participants how to make jewelry, as well as how to lend furniture pieces an aged look without having to glue grey beards onto them.

Bushnells Landscape Industries boasts a vast array of décor for outdoor spaces and gardening tools, as well as flowers and plants, 90% of which are grown on-site. Shoppers can browse the nursery garden and green thumb through locally grown annuals ($3.98 each; three for $10.50) to add a splash of color to black-and-white front yards that were built in the 1950s. As 5-gallon hybrid roses ($27.98 each), 7-inch tapered candles ($4.50 each), or Cretan hand-thrown pottery ($75+) await to brighten porches, patios, and yards, thick-leaved succulents and spiny cacti ($4.98–$25.98) dissuade undiscerning vegetarians from devouring entire gardens.

The staff members at Mr. Mattress don’t just want customers to peruse their stock; they want them to lie down on it. They know that their customers may end up spending half of their lives on whichever mattress they choose, so they let them take as much time as they need testing beds to find the right blend of support and comfort. 

Judging from the store’s vast collection of spring, memory-foam, and eco-friendly latex mattresses, selecting just one might take more time than anticipated. When they aren’t comparing popular brands such as Spring Air and Knickerbocker, customers can use the expansive showroom to chart out elaborate battle strategies for future pillow fights.
