Connected by an asphalt web of highways, state roads, and thoroughfares, blocky yellow signs gleam nonstop, casting a dandelion glow from the words “Waffle House.” The booths at the eateries fill 24 hours each day with the aromas of sizzling pork chops, Jimmy Dean sausage, and endless mugs of coffee. Line cooks brown shredded potatoes on a grill as waiters shout back in a language all their own for hash browns “smothered,” “covered,” or “topped”—served with onions, cheese, or chili, respectively. Angus burgers and steak melts share space on the rippling-hot surface at all times of day, allowing tired drivers to stop for food when they are on a long journey or just listening to an 11-hour drum solo on the radio. The first Waffle House switched on its lights in 1955, and some menu items still bear the names of Waffle House staff of the past, including Bert's chili from Dallas and Alice's iced tea.

Brides to be know that beauty is in the details; that’s why for the last quarter of a century, affianced women have come knocking at the door of Mondelli's Bakeshop where an experienced cake decorator meets bridal clients’ specifications with carefully applied swirls of icing and frosted flowers. Besides custom-cake appointments, the bakers put their attention to detail to use by stocking up the bakery counter with specialty breads, iced cookies, and the shop’s popular chocolate-sundae cake. Bakers also craft an array of donuts and pastries that are rolled, cut, fried, and iced by hand, allowing clients to bite into still-warm treats without consuming them during steamy morning showers.

Soft white and red lights beam down from Baba's ceiling, spotlighting the contemporary Asian décor inside the lounge. The staff bustles about the restaurant, slicing up specialty sushi rolls and preparing hibachi-style meats, vegetables, and rice at tableside grills before captivated audiences of diners. As waiters carry out plates of eclectic Asian seafood, poultry, and beef dishes from the kitchen, bartenders dole out glasses of specialty martinis, sake, and plum wine. In the meantime, guests recline on cushy leather chairs or at the bar within the comfortable dining area, an ideal setting to meet with friends and family for a wordless briefcase exchange.

Posh Salon & Spa lives up to its billing as a Redken elite salon affiliate with a selection of coloring and conditioning treatments that tap into Redken's professional product line. The salon’s greatest resource, however, is its staff—a group of talented hairstylists who have trained under professional educators and exude southern hospitality. Though the salon bustles with the sounds of lively chatter and snipping shears, the nearby spa is another story. Awash in soft light and backdropped by full-scale mosaics, technicians revamp hands and feet and massage away tension with Swedish, sports, and deep-tissue techniques. More than 10 types of facials fight signs of aging, erasing fine lines and scrubbing away the residue of birthday cakes ceremoniously hurled at faces.
