Crest Cleaners uses its exclusive CleanCare System to unsoil shirts and slacks while leaving the environment virtually unblemished. By using only biodegradable and organic cleaning agents, Crest Cleaners avoids the carcinogenic dangers of traditional tetrachloroethylene-based agents that lie in wait to sabotage suit jackets and the bodies that fill them. Enjoy eco-friendly edulcorating, with most cleaning—including pants and sports coats—running at $7.25 per item. Laundered shirts run $2.40 a piece and get to keep a souvenir hanger from their ride on the motorized clothes carousel. Dresses run around $14.50 each. For nocturnalites who do their errands in the still of the night—when the sun isn’t listening in on conversations—Crest Cleaners offers 24-hour drop off, and busy bees can take advantage of the cleaner's same-day policy, as items dropped off by 11 a.m. are ready for pick-up by 5 p.m. Get garments ready for demolition derbies and anti-costume Halloween parties with the spiffying-up services of Crest Cleaners.

Owned and operated by artist Kelly Hutchinson, Kelly's Art & Frame is home to a 2,800-square-foot art gallery where original paintings, watercolors, and limited-edition prints line the walls.

The inspiring trainers at each MetaBody location lead troops of workouteers in results-oriented workouts several times weekly. Sweat sessions utilize a variety of exercises and disciplines to produce full-body results in a supportive environment, ideal for beginners and hard-core core-hardeners alike. During any class, motivational instructors will use the instinctual distrust of routine to their advantage. Begin a day of litigating with a refreshing early-morning boot-camp session, or wind down by burning evidence and pounds with a late-evening yoga class. Muscles are kept guessing with new and challenging moves during each session, so participants never fall into a boring, ineffective routine, such as regular teeth brushing. In addition to the fitness classes, students receive a success guide to help prepare for imminent pound loss, a nutrition guide, and a $100 gift certificate for individual coaching. Because the pass sets a 10-class cap for each company, roving fitness mavens can further shake up their workout regimens by vetting a series of classes or instructors that work best for them.
