Like many people, Kenneth Geary had a childhood nickname. “Skinnie Piggy.” The moniker was bestowed upon him by his grandmother due to his large appetite and high metabolism. The name has stuck, as Kenneth and co-owner, Monica Rodriguez, have not only dubbed their sweets shop "Skinnie Piggy" but have also incorporated its meaning into the concept of the store. Executive chef Elizabeth McCabe handcrafts a daily menu of freshly-baked pies, poundcakes, and cupcakes, most of which come in Hog (huge), Skinnie (regular), and Piglet (mini) sizes, an innovation that gained praise from ABC7, Chicago Magazine, and Pop Sugar. Amid pink polka dotted walls decorated with local artwork, customers can dispense gourmet treats such as Jelly Belly’s from clear containers, and peruse more than 25 types of nostalgic candies, from Fun Dip to Zotz Fizz. The sweets boutique also caters special occasion parties and business meetings with confectionary bouquets and candy boxes.

Inside Ultimate Exposure Tanning Centers' Chicagoland locations, a full lineup of UV- and spray-tanning equipment infuse skin with a healthy summer glow year-round. Individual sessions in the automated spray-tanning booths?such as VersaSpa?or UV beds gild bodysuits for nights on the town, and unlimited monthly packages fashion a continuous golden hue previously only available to sunbathing satellites. The salon stocks a variety of tan-accelerating lotions from Swedish Beauty, Australian Gold, and Designer Skin, which deepen bronze hues and moisturize skin to fashion a long-lasting radiance.
Modern Way Cleaners and Addison Cleaners’ compassionate staff participates in regular green-cleaning by recycling hangers, wielding fabric tote bags, and cleansing apparel with a hybrid of high-efficiency wet-cleaning and biodegradable solvents that eschew caustic chemicals and respect fragile textiles. Cleaners bust the stains from a range of wardrobe members, freeing pants ($4.50) from the scourge of spilled soup and preparing wool coats ($13.95) for the rest of winter’s rage. Each service endures Modern Way’s four-point inspection, where an astute employee quadruple-scrutinizes pieces for absent buttons, undesirable blemishes, and half-finished embroidery of favored constitutional amendments.
In addition to using traditional dry-cleaning methods, Lake City Cleaners’ laundering outlets set themselves apart with environmentally friendly technology installed at each of their four Chicagoland locations in Lake Forest, Highland Park, Evanston, and Chicago. Lake City Cleaners offers three levels of cleaning: Classic Care for everyday clothing, Fleur de Lis Care for fine items that require hand finishing, as well as Monarch Care, which uses the carbon dioxide-based Solvair system with a biodegradable cleaning solution. Pickup and delivery services are available throughout the North Shore, Gold Coast, Magnificent Mile, and much of the northern suburbs, and the cleaners’ GPS-tracking verifies the time and location of order of pickup and drop-off.
