In each independently owned establishment of this national organization, Boston Bartenders School gives students the skills and knowledge needed to make masterful martinis, create consummate cocktails, and placate thirsty mobs with a single skillful pour.

Awarded Best Beauty School of 2009 by the U.S. Commerce Association, Cosmix School of Beauty deploys a cadre of nail-clinic pupils to renovate finger and toe armor under the expert guidance of qualified instructors. Employing high-end nailcare products by brands such as OPI, claw scholars first trim and file nails into smooth half-moons or craggy full-Plutos. After a blitz of meticulous buffing imbues digit shields with eye-blinding shine, the patron’s choice of polish instills fingernails, toenails, and dowdy wooly mammoth tusks with a piercing new color.
The staff members at Sylvan Learning's numerous centers understand that each child learns differently. Therefore, they don’t try to implement a uniform tutoring system; instead, they design custom lesson programs based on the results of a skills assessment using diagnostic tools and one-on-one interviews.
Tutors work with students from pre-kindergarten through grade 12, illuminating topics ranging from basic reading and writing to remembering complex algebraic formulas without having them tattooed on your chest. Many of Sylvan’s instructors work in local schools, so they are intimately familiar with common curricula and understand how to gear lessons toward optimal results. Camps and after-school and summer classes can ready high-schoolers for the rigors of the ACT or the SAT, or they can help students to wow college-admissions officers with their superior essay-writing skills.
Most people will never get the chance to play a round of golf at Augusta National. At Pappas Indoor Golf & Baseball, players can approximate their dream round inside the complex's trio of indoor golf simulators. The simulator screens replicate 230 courses in vivid detail, including the venerable host course of The Masters and Scotland's Saint Andrews. The simulators share space with a well-rounded practice facility that includes a 1,600-square-foot putting green, 12 hitting bays, a short game area, and a sand bunker. In areas designated for private lessons, PGA pro Bill Pappas polishes his clients' mechanics with the help of video swing analysis equipment.
Golfers aren’t the only athletes taking cuts at Pappas Indoor. The facility’s indoor batting cages let softball and baseball stars fine-tune their swing, take some extra batting practice on a rainy day, or test whether pitching machines can feel human emotions.
