Once somnolent souls have selected a mattress on which to paint their dreamscapes, they can opt into Sleep Outfitters' five-star delivery service, where burly mattress gods deliver and set up mattresses and remove old bedding.

Designed by architect Buck Blankenship, the fairways of Shelbyville Country Club's 18-hole course circumnavigate a horseshoe-shaped lake and they gently rise and fall over the rolling hills of Shelby County. Narrow fairways lined with mature trees offset the course's relatively short 6,400-yard length, setting the tone for a round that rewards accuracy and course management over flashy drives and flame-decaled golf bags. A fully stocked pro shop lies at the course's trailhead, offering players the latest in clubs and gear, and a staff of two resident aces stands ready to adjust swings and impart strategic advice during private and group lessons. Along with the immaculate landscape, Shelbyville Country Club boasts two outdoor tennis courts and an Olympic-size pool featuring a gated kiddie pool and play area, all of which are patrolled by a lifeguard and Mark Spitz's mustache.

Goose Creek Cycle galvanizes two-wheelers with a variety of elusive parts and maintenance services to keep customers coasting. The skilled cycle technicians begin the basic bike tune-up by adjusting the front and rear shifting and brake pads, which ensures that all velocipede-vessels will sail smoothly, dock on a dime, and outrun gifted children demanding today's newspaper. A truing is then performed to wipe out wobbles and minor dips, followed by a relubrication of chafed chains using a light chain oil, such as Tri-Flow. Finally, headsets and hubs are adjusted, and tire pressure is calibrated to ensure a cushy ride. Before mechanics return bikes to the wheeled wilderness, the team will give the spoked chariot a once-over to diagnose any replaceable parts, tighten up bolts, and fluff pom-pom handlebars.
Cardinal Club greets golfers with a 7,000-yard course sprawling with pristine greens and bent-grass fairways designed by golf architect Spencer Holt. Members hone chip shots and bunker-sandcastle-building skills at the multi-tiered 22-acre practice facility, where PGA pros sharpen students' skills with individual lessons. An onsite shop matches sportsmen with the ideal equipment for driving, putting, and shooing off ball-snorting aardvarks. At Cardinal Club's spacious dining facility, friends and families trade golf fairways for salad greens and fresh fish and pasta entrees. The outdoor patio allows early risers to watch the sun rise over a plate of sunny-side-up eggs, and a casual lounge hosts several TVs for catching the latest sports scores or infomercial 1-800 numbers.
Not much compares to a sports fan’s loyalty to their school, and loyal fans choose Fan Outfitters as the best place to find Cardinals gear, apparel, and gifts. The shop equips supporters of all ages with T-shirts, jackets, hats, and sunglasses, as well as Adidas gear emblazoned with the University of Louisville insignia, ranging from hats and shirts to equipment bags and footballs.

Their gifts make great presents for all occasions, whether celebrating the start of basketball season or helping your neighbor build a wall of baseball caps between your properties.
Pedal Power Bike Shop’s friendly technicians incorporate techniques developed by the Serotta International Cycling Institute during professional bike fittings to customize cycles to each rider’s desires and capabilities. Tailored to two-wheelers of all brands, styles, and types, personalized two- to three-hour fittings begin with an interview covering the customer’s lifestyle and needs, such as any preexisting aches, daily routes, or dreams of jumping over the Adirondacks. Then, a physical assessment yields basic measurements and tests flexibility, priming patrons for a pedaling session atop an indoor trainer that allows the technician to determine the rider’s general position in real time. Drawing on the info they’ve gleaned, fitters will then make custom adjustments to client's bikes to help ensure a comfortable and efficient ride. Ideal for fostering one-of-a-kind comfort, bike fittings may also aid riders in avoiding strain and injury from repetitive use or from using the bike as a bed.
