At ReJuvenere Medical Spa, board-certified family physician Richard M. Junke and his wife, Suzanne––a registered nurse––treat every visitor the way they would if they were welcoming them into their own home. Guests enjoy complimentary wine, coffee, or tea as they relax in the cozy, parlor-like living room, where a plush, cream-colored sofa offers views of dark-wood shelves stocked with homey knickknacks and products by lines such as Environ and Revision Skincare. After they've finished unwinding and checking armchair cushions for change, clients are shown to private treatment rooms, where Dr. Junke's skilled technicians, aestheticians, and massage therapists await to rejuvenate them from the outside in.
The cosmetic procedures include everything from classic pedicures to wrinkle-erasing dermal fillers, as well as eight types of therapeutic facials, each of which begins with a skin analysis to pinpoint problems such as dehydration, deep-set wrinkles, and acne. Beyond the day-spa basics, the office also boasts an advanced lineup of skincare technology, which includes a YAG vein-removal laser and a skin-resurfacing fractional CO2 laser, which was showcased on an episode of The Doctors.
Wagner’s two most popular dishes are quite different, but equally delicious.

At lunch, diners can nosh on wraps rolled with Cajun turkey or greek chicken, whereas the dinner menu introduces entrees such as baked haddock and fettuccine alfredo with chicken or crab.

Starting in 1982, Dave and Gwen Carson used to spend hours baking pies in their North Tonawanda apartment to sell at area farmers' markets. As they acquired more space by building a house and converting the basement into a commercial kitchen, the pie orders increased, too. Eventually, the Carsons were selling their hand-rolled pies at more than 20 grocery stores and even baked 2,000 pies for a single fundraising event. Today, they still spend hours baking, but their pies share the spotlight with other housemade treats such as seasonal cookies, meatloaf, and classic sub sandwiches.

Each tour covers about 12 miles of ground, but participants stop frequently to snap pictures and learn interesting facts about the local architecture.
