Although Hooligan's Deli and Ice Cream is a popular snack destination for students, it caters to all ages with a multifarious menu of sandwiches and sweet treats. Pop in after work or after watching a heated Scrabble match between rival mascots to snag afternoon fuel, such as a turkey club ($5.85) or a Hooligan's hoagie ($6.50), which features warm cuts of turkey breast, ham, and roast beef swaddled within a plush sub roll. Straight from the grill, a prime-rib sandwich ($7.80) tackles carnivorous hankerings with six ounces of succulent prime rib, and a veggie burger ($5.35) quells leaf-lust with a patty crafted from a blend of fresh vegetables and grains. Witness the careful stacking abilities of dairy scoopers as they heap together flavored ice cream on a cone ($1.38–$4.30), or excavate the icy drifts of hot fudge, butterscotch, and pineapple on a sundae ($3.95) with a spoon or pocket-sized ice auger.

Secret of the Islands' natural bath and beauty products nourish and soften the skin to imbue a healthy glow. The company's artisans follow a Bahamian family recipe to make an exfoliating salt scrub infused with tropical aromas, and they blend vitamin E into face cream to reduce the appearance of fine lines. Although the product recipes come from the tropics, the products themselves are made locally in South Carolina.

Blythewood Grille lures in customers with the aromas of American grill fare, including sandwiches, hot dogs, and other finger foods. Cooks work from a menu of time-honored classics, toasting Philly cheesesteaks and slathering chicken wings with seven different sauces. Deep fryers sizzle with tasty accompaniments such as fried pickles and sweet-potato fries. In the dining room, flat-screen TVs overlook cushy red booths where guests gulp down Shock Top or any of the other bubbly brews the eatery taps directly from the earth's hops-filled core.

Initially founded in 1988 to bring Western medicine technology to Koreans, Migun has now spread to the United States, bringing Eastern medicine practices to Americans. Its health philosophy evolves around blending Eastern medicine and Western technology, which can be seen in the cornerstone of Migun's treatments—the thermal-massage system. These beds combine far-infrared heat and massage with acupressure to soothe bodies. Migun believes that by blending the two cultures, it can help people to achieve better overall health and wellness without resorting to using genie magic.
