A lot of big things start in a garage; Boston Paintball, however, needed a warehouse. The team of paintball enthusiasts came together in 1992, and they spent 10 years in a downtown warehouse, introducing thousands of people to the sport and spilling more paint than an artist working on a tilt-a-whirl. But even that space eventually proved too small, and the company has since expanded to three locations in the greater Boston area.

Susan D'Antona's secret ingredient is math. The mastermind behind Mega Hair Elite carefully calculates how much weight can be held by each strand of hair before applying hair extensions one by one, leading to natural-looking length that doesn't cause damage. However, Ms. D'Antona's extension skills go beyond the mere creation of longer locks. Her eyelash treatments call upon NovaLash products, which are applied directly to the natural lash, thus helping clients to bat their eyes more easily at potential paramours or dive-bombing butterflies. To facilitate beach trips, the staff applies sunless tanning treatments and waxes away excess hair from 14 body zones. The shop also supports women who experience hair loss by stocking up an extensive inventory of non-surgical wigs.
Morsels of beef, chicken, and pork absorb rich, smoky flavors over the wood coals of Braza's custom-made churrasqueria grill. Servers slice the traditional Brazilian feasts off skewers right at the table, which is one of the rich traditions of gaucho culture, like tying pork sausage into lasso knots. An all-you-can-eat buffet with sides such as yucca, hearts of palm, and lemon sauce cut meaty flavors with zesty and crispy tastes. As guests savor chicken wings, pork tenderloins, and jerk beef, a lively nightclub atmosphere puts feet on the dance floor with traditional Brazilian music and karaoke.
