Owner Henderson Poleon handcrafts more than 24 flavors of frozen-custard ice cream at K's Frozen Island, garnishing them with toppings and mix-ins such as pineapple, Butterfinger, and caramel fudge. Italian ice, shaved ice, and a smattering of shakes and floats round out the creamery's dairy dishes. Gourmet grilled hoagies come straight off the kitchen's iron waffle-cone maker to remedy clinical cases of brain freeze. Build-your-own sandwiches sandwich the shop's selection of breads, proteins, cheeses, and veggies.
French gastronome Brillat-Savarin once said, “A dinner which ends without cheese is like a beautiful woman with only one eye.” Today’s Groupon makes sure your beautiful women all have two eyes. For just $15, you can get $35 worth of fromage, vin, charcuterie, and more at Scardello Artisan Cheese.
Part-time personal chef Steven Bailey was growing tired of bland, industrially processed food. As detailed by D Magazine, Steven was determined to do something about his frustration, so he hit the road one weekend in his Volkswagen Rabbit and began scouring Texas farms and markets for fresher ingredients. The more organic, locally grown food he brought back, the more friends and neighbors started requesting some for themselves. The growing demand led Steven to start Urban Acres, where customers can track down organic produce, dairy, and grass-fed meats from local farmers and artisans who never use pesticides, hormones, artificial flavoring, or shoddy magnetic force fields.
As a member of Urban Acres, members pick large, medium, or small shares of organic fruits and veggies. Urban Acres also sells locally grown grub to members and nonmembers alike at its Oak Cliff Farmstead, which D Magazine says "brings a bit of country to the big city." There, visitors can find shelves and counters fashioned from reclaimed wood, a bee colony on the roof, and produce snuggled in boxes of hay. Urban Acres also offers hands-on educational opportunities to learn about small-scale urban farming.
MEDermis Facials' board-certified medical director captains a team of certified laser specialists and medical aestheticians, who help their clients reach aesthetic goals with the help of advanced technology. Together, the team has safely erased more than 200,000 unwanted tattoos of all shapes, sizes, and colors using Lutronic Spectra lasers. The cutting-edge apparatuses emit q-switched beams of high-energy light, which help disband ink particles and prepare them to be naturally jettisoned from the body via the lymphatic system—technical speak for "laser eraser". The lasers flit over skinscapes, fostering smooth, even skin with minimal risk of scarring, disrupting natural pigments, or attracting bored cats. In addition to getting rid of unwanted ink, the talented staff can also help to correct skin troubles with peels, microdermabrasion, and other skin care services.
Sharon Meehan conceived Ham I Am! out of a love and a passion for good food and a committment to sell only the very best. We decided good meats should have a tasty condiment to go alongside of them, so we came up with HOGWASH, and rarely ship a ham without a jar of HOGWASH to accompany it.
