At the time Doctor Rotskoff graduated from Washington University, he was one of only 30 doctors in the country to hold dual degrees in medicine and dentistry. He went on to combine his specialty in oral maxillofacial surgery with his expertise in cosmetic surgery, and is considered an authority on facial reconstruction in addition to body contouring and laser skin rejuvenation. When he isn't lecturing to national and international audiences or authoring chapters for leading medical journals, Dr. Rotskoff joins Dr. Timothy Gillum, a board-certified surgeon specializing in both head and neck surgery and facial plastic and reconstructive surgery. Together, they oversee a staff of laser technicians who help patients discover less-invasive ways to turn back the clock. Wielding Syneron laser technology, they usher unwanted stubble off the body's map and help erase signs of aging with microdermabrasion, photofacial treatments, and ReFirme skin tightening. Renew Cosmetic Spa offers complimentary consultations to all prospective patients, encouraging them to visit the center, learn about the treatments from a specialist, and claim a favorite chair in the waiting room.

Sole Survivor sports a strut-worthy selection of outdoor, comfort, and fashion-forward sole-shields for men, women, and kids. Peruse brand-name kicks such as Chaco and Merrell to outfit terrain trodders for upcoming adventures, or try on Naot sandals and Sebago loafers for a chic and comfortable crab-walk about town. Beachy sandals by FitFlop ($60) tone gams into pillars of muscle capable of supporting bodies without the help of feet, leaving toes free to patter off quietly in a pair of soft-soled Minnetonka Kilty moccasins ($42). Tiny toddler tootsies can scamper freely in soft Acorn Easy booties ($18) or a selection of velcro-strap trainers from Wee Squeak ($32). More rugged than a pair of long johns woven from beef jerky, women's Kamik Comforter 2 boots ($62) valiantly protect feet from bad weather, and men's Harness 8R Vintage motorcycle boots by Frye ($210) provide a perfect way to safely shield tough-as-nails tootsies from the fiery exhaust pipes of Hell's Angels.
Your one-hour cruise will commence at the levee below the Gateway Arch aboard one of two 19th-century replica steamboats, either the Tom Sawyer or the Becky Thatcher. Like a real-life third person, the captain of your craft will omnisciently narrate your adventure along the St. Louis riverfront with historical factoids, geographical trivia, and wistful recollections of the way your childhood crush's hair used to sparkle in the springtime sunlight. Customers looking for even greater detail may choose to rent one of Gateway's iPods for an additional fee. This audio cruise companion whispers stories of the Missouri and Mississippi rivers' confluence into your ears, set to the sweet beats of this year's hottest jock jams. Since exercising one's vision and hearing can make one's other senses hungry, boxed lunches may be ordered in advance ($8 for a box lunch, $4 for a hot-dog lunch). You can also sniff, fondle, and purchase concessions while aboard—or enjoy a bite to eat at Gateway's Arch View Café before or after your tour.
