While attending law school in the ‘70s, Majestic Chem-Dry founder Robert Harris worked as a carpet cleaner by day and an amateur chemist by night. During this stint, he set a mission for himself: to concoct a cleaning formula that succeeded where most others failed. After years of studying the chemical properties of various solutions and performing his own experiments, Robert successfully devised a carbonated cleaning solution that was both effective on stains and safe for kids, pets, and allergy-afflicted poltergeists. With his new invention—named The Natural—in tow, Robert went into business, first serving family and friends before founding his own small carpet-and-upholstery-cleaning franchise. Today, the Chem-Dry network boasts thousands of locations around the world, which are staffed by certified technicians and protect clients with a satisfaction guarantee.
With a history that stretches back to the 1930s, Hollywood Park has been entrancing bettors with invigorating equine sprints for more than 70 years. After dropping off cars, vans, or giraffe-drawn carriages with obliging valets, guests can stroll inside the grounds and pick up the day's program and peruse upcoming races. After placing bets on favored thoroughbreds, visitors can plunk down in general-admission seating to cheer on favored steeds. Food vouchers allow guests to pick up comestibles at the on-track dining areas, refueling for raucous rooting or between-race games of freeze tag.

Grilled over charcoal, smoked with hickory and oak, and smothered with an artful balance of homemade sauce and seasoning. When it comes to barbecuing Kansas-style spareribs and half-chickens, the pit masters at Brothers Barbeque draw on more than 30 years of experience to infuse each slab of meat with smooth, smoky flavors. Beef, hot links, and tri tips undergo a similarly thorough treatment before filling sandwich rolls, and the cooks slather pork ribs from Farmer John in a blend of spices more secret than the robot that does all of the president’s biddings.
Southern-style sides, including potato salad and baked beans round out Brothers Barbeque's menu, and can be enjoyed as carry-out or shipped to homes in vacuum-sealed, dry-iced packaging. The barbecuing team also caters small parties and large events, including numerous smooth-jazz festivals every year.
