Steve and Melissa grew up around animals. After entering the pet industry, Steve felt that he could build a better, stronger dog-walking company—with a little help from technology. That's why he and Melissa founded Puppy Pronto. Their dog-walking service comes with a free lock box, which allows them to care for your pets while you're away without causing an unfortunate security breach. Once inside, they deck out your fridge with a barcode magnet. Scanning this sends you an email, so you know precisely when they arrived to walk your pet. They also send humans a link to a Google map of their canine's route. Alternatively, they can equip pups with a special camera that documents their walks. A bit of editing creates a polished, downloadable film so you can see the world through your dog's eyes. Tail-waggers in need of a place to crash have the option of staying at Steve and Melissa's place—in the company of their two poodles—or at the dog's own pad where they keep their favorite smells.
The recipe for the typical crepe is simple—a bit of flour, milk, water, a few eggs, some butter, and a dash of salt. Yet, transforming that batter into the golden, paper-thin canvases found in classic Parisian cafes—and more importantly, deciding what to put inside the crepe—requires real talent. Luckily, The Crepe Kitchen‘s master chef Yafit Barades eliminates the guesswork with her menu of made-to-order dinner and dessert crepes. With a flick of her wrist, Chef Barades creates edible envelopes for her complex and globally inspired flavors—such as the Italiano, which embellishes melted mozzarella and cheddar with pesto, turkey, and fresh basil. To satisfy their sweet hankerings, guests can enjoy butter-and-sugar, cinnamon-sugar, and Nutella crepes. For a supremely indulgent treat, patrons can tuck into the Oui Oui—a crunchy and sweet collaboration of caramelized walnuts, fresh fruit, and honey that’s more satisfying than watching your ex accidentally marry a mannequin.
Gable Equestrian’s leafy facility may be peaceful, but that doesn’t mean it’s not host to plenty of activity. The stable specializes in teaching dressage, an equestrian event that showcases a horse’s natural athletic ability and demonstrates its willingness to perform—its only outlet for that impulse since horses were banned from the 100-meter dash. Of course, the center is also adept at caring for horses, feeding, bathing, and exercising the noble beasts that take up residence there.
