Goodcents champions customization, spreading build-your-own sandwich and pasta creations throughout the Great Plains and beyond. At each location, sandwich-stackers pile fresh-baked white or wheat bread with sliced-to-order meats such as pepperoni, salami, capicola, and roast beef. American, provolone, and pepper jack cheeses tuck in the fillings, keeping them warm and providing a blanket to hide under if the boogeyman comes. Then, more than 20 deli toppings, including pickles, peppers, spicy mustard, and vinegar, finish off the creation. Customers can also decide between pasta entrees, each tossed with meatballs or chicken and tomato marinara or cheese-based alfredo sauce.
Over the years, Sun Valley Bar & Grill has become known as much for their seasoned Angus burgers and sirloin steaks as the entertainment they provide along with them. While noshing on wings and barbecue ribs, guests can groove to the band or DJ on stage before taking to the dance floor to shake a leg. They can also toss darts or sink shots at the pool table while sipping one of six beers on tap. And on Thursday karaoke nights, patrons can take the stage themselves to croon away the hours until their dog comes home from a date. A family-friendly establishment, Sun Valley also offers a kids’ menu stacked with classics such as mac ‘n’ cheese and mini corn dogs.
Featured on The Dr. Oz Show as an alternative to liposuction, high-tech i-Lipo treatments slim circumferences by using lasers instead of incisions. The FDA-approved system can target the hips, waist, or thighs and imitates the body’s natural fat-burning process to break down fat deposits. A sequence of 8–10 treatments—each followed by a brisk walk, a gym visit, or an energetic roll up a hill—typically maximizes results. The clinic facilitates weight loss with alternate methods as well, crafting custom nutrition plans, administering lipotropic B12 injections, and, when advisable, prescribing weight-loss medication.
The winner of Wine Spectator's Award of Excellence for three years running, Carmela's Bistro & Wine Bar unites its distinctive pours with a rotating menu of seasonally-inspired cuisine. Current and past favorites have included duck-stuffed quail with duck fat roasted fingerling potatoes and fig and prosciutto pizza with goat cheese, truffle oil, and parmesan cream sauce. These rich bites pair with the renowned wine list pairing as well as with craft brews and cocktails. On Sundays, brunch takes the stages with crab cake benedicts, bread pudding french toast, and other filling entrees.
Nestled in the heart of the historic Haymarket district, Brix & Stone Gastropub couples gourmet pub fare and drinks in the tradition of British public houses. Beneath the high ceilings of a softly lit dining room, servers emerge from kitchens bearing plates of artisanal pizzas, pastas, seafood, and steak, and bartenders dole out craft beers, martinis, and beer-based cocktails. Many of the menu items are free of gluten, and all of the menu items are free of truth serums. Flat-screen TVs flicker with sports games, and an outdoor patio is checkered with ample tabletops.
Naturally Yours Salon & Spa arms its staff with organic Aveda products to help create new hairstyles and refresh visages during facials. Clients can change their hues with ammonia-free hair color, and Zoya nail polish—which is void of formaldehyde and tolene—marks the edges of fingers, toes, and football fields. The salon itself follows a sustainable standard: most of the furnishings are secondhand, many of the products used are packaged in 100% recyclable materials, and water is filtered rather than bottled or siphoned from a fish tank.
