At Crown Valley Animal Care, the list of pet-saving services rivals that of any human hospital. In their tireless pursuit to keep pets healthy, dedicated veterinarians use modern technology on furry, fluffy, and rocky friends. Their laser surgery eschews traditional scalpels for highly precise cuts, while ultrasounds and digital radiology detect any potential inner problems. Professional groomers also comb through matted coats, restoring pooches to pristine condition. In addition to providing dentistry, wellness services, and an in-house laboratory for tests, the center’s staff furnishes warmer, fuzzier facilities as well.
Pet boarding suites provide ample room for dogs to lounge and play. Tiffany lamps, soft beds, and pedestals accommodate visiting cats—be they aristocats, blue-collar cats, or cats with any other color of collar.
Biatta's online boutique showcases saucy, supportive styles for juniors, plus sizes, and everyone in between. The Liza demi bra drapes the upper body in pink satin lace, with a black ribbon running across both cups ($20). Nab the matching stretch underwear ($10), or seize a sheer baby doll and g-string set, which pulls double duty as a naughty nightie or as questionable formalwear ($36). Peekaboo panties minimize the use of unnecessary fabric, saving the environment, stale marriages, and the livelihoods of America's lace farmers in one frilly swoop ($8). Conserve cash by perusing the sale section and capturing classic designs for less than $10.
Dry-cleaning services at the family-owned Village 1 Hour Cleaners target dust, grime, mustard stains, and entire subway sandwiches trapped deep in garments. Unblemish pants and degunkify blouses for $5.50, scour shirts for $2, launder a jacket for $10.95, or nicely clean up a two-piece suit for $15. Village uses environmentally friendly cleaning products and practices to not only extend the life of clothing and eliminate static electricity, odors, and microorganisms, but also to reduce the ecological impact of looking fantastic.
At Bistro K, traditional Italian recipes merge with eclectic New World flavors for a menu that's reflective of the international history of the family behind it. That story starts back in Italy with the four Bagatta brothers, all chefs who later traveled on to France, South Africa, and Southern California. It was during these wanderings that Tony Bagatta met Massimiliana, the woman who would become his wife. Today, Massimiliana and her daughter Katia run Bistro K as a mother-daughter team, serving up hearty plates from traditional Italian gnocchi to gourmet burgers smothered in gruyère.
iSmile Dentistry proudly proclaims that their doctors are patient specialists and oral-cancer-screening gurus. The crew regularly attends lectures and conventions to remain on the cutting edge of new technology and techniques, including oral-surgery procedures, laser treatments for gum disease, and clear brace aligners. The comprehensive nature of the practice allows patients to receive virtually any service with an on-staff practitioner, eliminating the need to go door to door to find a nearby orthodontist.
