As South Florida's home-brew supply depot, BX assists brew masters and novices alike in their fermenting endeavors. Brewing classes lecture lager lovers and ale admirers in the fundamentals of batch brewing, providing a run down of everything from ingredients and equipment to technique and bottling, and the beer experts will brew a batch on site so suds-savoring students can easily follow along. Classes can accommodate up to 30 people, increasing the chances that singles mingling around the wort cauldron may bump into their fated stout mate or start up a bromance with a fellow hops enthusiast. Both relationships can be explored further at the group-brewing session, held immediately after the class, where local home brewers and beer worshipers meet up to socialize and discuss all things grain related.
Since opening its first center in 1999, Laser Skin & Wellness has expanded to two locations, both of which provide medical aesthetic treatments overseen by Medical Director, Gloria Hakkarainen, M.D. And to ensure each patient receives the best treatment for their concerns, a personalized consultation is performed before technicians craft a customized treatment plan, which can include medical weight loss programs, laser tattoo removal, dermal fillers, and permanent makeup treatments. Laser technicians gently remove unwanted hair with a Cutera CoolGlide laser, which keeps the skin comfortable with a built-in cooling device, or a Cutera ProWave 770 system that can banish strands on all skin types including invisible. During acne treatments, a Clear Light system releases blue-violet rays across the skin, killing bacteria deep in the pores. To further beautify complexions, Laser Skin & Wellness’ staff also employs Obagi, SkinMedica, EltaMD, and Jan Marini products.
The pictorial preservationists at Magic Image have served the photography- and digital-imaging needs of amateurs and professionals for more than 20 years. Their shoebox-scanning service can transfer a lifetime of pictures, ranging from wallets to 8" x 10"s, onto a convenient digital medium, allowing for easier sharing and safer keeping. Shoeboxes must be no larger than 12" x 7" x 5", and photos must be free of tape, glue, staples, tears, and staged shots of friends high-fiving.
Flash Cleaners' team members dry-clean everything from shirts and draperies to wedding dresses and three-piece suits. And they do all the dry cleaning onsite, which means they give each piece their personal attention while keeping costs down. That personal attention includes removing buttons from formal wear before processing and letting their expert stain abolisher, Victor, spot-clean garments with his 25-plus years of experience. There’s also the nine-step inspection of each piece that passes before their eyes to ensure its proper cleaning and handling.
For more than 24 years, the cleaning staff at Nu Look Cleaners has been vanquishing stains and coddling clothing and other items, in addition to making repairs. A stain-disdaining staff cleanses soiled garments using advanced machines and products designed to produce no chemical odor, so that every suit, comforter, or rug that wanders through the door leaves clean and smelling as fresh as a shampooed flower. To make sure no stealthy stains have slipped under the radar, the team inspects all garments two times before sending them home. Nu Look Cleaners can accommodate patrons with same-day service, and the staff’s alterations help clothes to fit better for those who have recently lost weight from working out or lost height from wearing lead top hats.
