For a classic slice of Americana, customers need only to cross the threshold of Mel's Diner. Hungry diners can pull up to the counter or at a table to order from a menu of classic diner food. And this kitchen takes care in crafting every meal. The crew roast turkeys and smokes ribs in house and uses their very own hands to bread fish and patty burgers. A locally sourced menu of fresh grouper, salmon, New York strip steak, and natural chicken breast offers a variety of flavorful protein options. The eatery sates morning appetites as well, with fluffy just-baked biscuits covered in housemade gravy instead of yesterday's coffee.
Catherine Albanese Blanco, a bilingual skincare specialist, offers three types of rejuvenating beauty treatments: whole body, face centric, and hair removal. Services such as wraps and cellulite-targeting sessions are designed to help clients slim down, and an array of facials makes skin look youthful and radiant. Catherine's an Oasis for your Skin is the spa portion of Life Laser, a clinic where advanced laser technology is used to zap away fat, help patients quit smoking, and point things out from far away.
With loops of thread and a passion for highlighting natural beauty, the threaders at Classic Threading Salon groom and shape unruly eyebrows. They customize brow shapes to each client's face, creating sleek, well-defined arches that frame the eyes. The salon's hairstylists employ a similar philosophy as they trim hair into customized cuts designed to flatter each client's face shape or fit perfectly into their favorite hat. Waxing, skin-smoothing facials, and henna tattoos are a few other specialties.
Coastline Window Cleaning's trained and uniformed staff employs environmentally safe cleansers and drop cloths to wash windows inside and out. The expungers can fully wash away mold, mildew, and streaks from approximately a single-story home with 13 windows or one third of a regulation lighthouse. After arriving in a company van, the expert porthole polishers use water-fed poles to reach windows up to four stories high. When indoors, Coastline's cleaners will don shoe covers to protect flooring and, in addition to unsullying standard first-floor windows ($6 each), will happily bathe sliding glass doors ($6/window) or French panes ($8 each). To get estimates on the cost to clean second-floor windows or an entire home's worth of windows—or to decide the typical auction price of a Jose Canseco rookie card—check out Coastline's instant bid estimator.

When and how did you first develop a passion for your work?
I have always been interested in art. I began creating my own mini masterpieces as a young child. I had art classes every year from childhood to adulthood. I graduated with my bachelor's in fine arts and my master's in education. ... Creating art is a way for every person to express themselves. Whether your art is hanging in your own home or on a gallery wall, the meaning behind it is always from within.
