Fresh Chef Detroit's owner Chef Kirsten fills homes with custom-tailored plates made using fresh, local ingredients during at-home evenings. A wide-ranging culinary artist with special expertise in vegetarian and global cuisines, Chef Kirsten meets with hosts for a consultation or consults over then phone when guests call to book. During the consultation, she gleans her audience's desired menu, discusses the cost of ingredients needed, and measures tolerance for aprons with funny sayings on them. She then harvests necessary ingredients from grocery stores as well as local produce stands and farmers' markets before returning to the host's kitchen. $100 of groceries are covered in this offer, and the host pays anything over that amount to Chef Kirsten upon arrival. Once guests arrive, Chef Kirsten demonstrates a procession of cooking techniques before guests' hungry eyes and teaches them how to dispatch the night's menu to their hungry stomachs for approximately three hours.

When the Douglas J Aveda Institute opened in Knoxville in 2011, it joined a family of institutes and salons that Douglas Weaver started in the 1960s. Here, Aveda students pursue certification in cosmetology and esthiology while practicing their craft on real clients under the supervision of licensed educators. And because students perform the services, the rates are lower than at traditional salons. The Knoxville treatment menu includes hair design—cuts, color, retexturizing—as well as Aveda’s Elemental Nature facials, pedicures, and manicures.

The Institute is inside the historic S&W Grand building, a handsome art-deco landmark that, like a compassionate fairy-tale prince, is equally handsome on the inside. The spa rooms have a rustic balance of exposed brick and wood paneling, and the salon’s geometric light fixtures gleam upon checkerboard tile floors and industrial shelving lined with Aveda’s signature products.

Upon entering Go Cycle Studios, it might feel like you’ve accidentally walked into a club: hip-hop, rock, and dance music streams from the expansive sound system, reverberating off the exposed brick walls and polished concrete floors. The cycling and fitness center’s owners, Jimmy and Lisa, use this atmosphere to set the mood, but they’re serious about exercise. They and the other instructors tailor spin classes and other fitness programs to challenge riders of all levels, from beginners to those who want to work up to jumping a police barricade. Under their instruction, riders sweat astride Keiser stationary bikes, each outfitted with monitors that display RPMs, heart rate, approximate calorie burn, and miles covered. Before or after class, students can head to the back patio to sip coffee in the fresh air or furtively discuss ways to hasten the comeback of handlebar streamers.

Paint Party Royal Oak's artist instructors guide the canvas curious through the step-by-step process of creating painted masterpieces during two-hour classes. As each cadre of creators settles in, artisans dole out aprons, 16"x20" canvases, brushes, and acrylic paints before acquainting students with the day’s featured painting which can be viewed in the event calendar online, including such classic subjects as the vase of flowers, winter trees, or monocled brontosaurus. Next, masters demonstrate each brush stroke, and guests are welcome to bring snacks or their favorite bottle of wine to feed grumbling stomachs or demanding muses while they work.

At Yoga Shelter, you won't hear esoteric chants echoing through the halls or meditation music reverberating from rock-shaped speakers. That's because founder Eric Paskel wants to make yoga accessible for all students, whether they're searching for inner peace or a more toned bod. Hip hop, dance, soul, chill, contemporary, and classic music accompanies all classes, ranging from Yoga Rocks, which focuses on sequenced postures, to Fusion, a blend of faster- and slower-moving classes. There is no hierarchy of classes; each 60- to 75-minute session is open to all skill levels. As Paskel himself puts it on his about page, “What's different about us is that we admit we have issues, we know we have work to do—if you can relate to that, you'll love this place.”
