Dedicated to rewriting the traditional furniture-store formula, the well-edited shop eschews the sales in sales. Here, you can bed flop and couch surf without interruptions from sales-hungry staff.

The skilled aestheticians at Salon Grace will technicolor any tarnished tresses with a color or highlight treatment. For those that appreciate the uniform color of paint and vanilla Oreos, a single process ($70) will transform skull silk into one soft, shiny halo of hotness. A subtle face-framing hue ($45) will draw attention to meritable mugs, rather than egotistical scapulas, and the full-highlight process ($130) covers the head with foil to cut off the electromagnetic signals that aliens use to control the mind. A full highlight imbues the noodle nest with comprehensive color accented by shimmery peaks of vibrancy that reflect back the sun's lustful stares.

One of the area's oldest full-service tire dealers in operation, Hillen Tire & Auto Service opened in 1917 under the helm of the late Joseph Schnitzer, whose sons, Marvin and Jerry, maintained the tradition of trustworthy service. Now, under the new ownership of former manager and lead technician Brian Smith, the auto shop tends to the needs of almost every car and motorized pogo stick manufactured since 1974. An inventory of 38,000 tires from brands such as Michelin and Firestone set cars atop quality rubber, and ASE-certified technicians keep cars healthy with auto services that include tune-ups, heating and air conditioning, and maintenance packages.
