Most people will never get the chance to play a round of golf at Augusta National. At Pappas Indoor Golf & Baseball, players can approximate that dream inside a trio of indoor golf simulators. The simulator screens replicate 230 courses in vivid detail, including Augusta and Scotland's Saint Andrews. The simulators share space with a well-rounded practice facility that includes a 1,600-square-foot putting green, 12 hitting bays, a short-game area, and a sand bunker. In areas designated for private lessons, PGA pro Bill Pappas polishes his clients' mechanics with the help of video swing-analysis equipment.

Golfers aren’t the only athletes taking cuts at Pappas Indoor. The facility’s indoor batting cages let softball and baseball stars while away rainy days fine-tuning their swings or training pitching machines to feel human emotions.

Husband-and-wife team Felix and Sara inadvertently started a love affair with photography when they began taking pictures of their children every day to share with family members scattered across the globe. Over the years, this personal project has amassed more than 12,000 images and served as the impetus to found Felix Rust Photographers.

Felix and Sara describe their style as "quirky and un-posed," an aesthetic they create using unusual vantage points and washed-out colors. Flipping through the couple’s portfolio, viewers are treated to heartwarming portraits, including a kissing couple captured in the reflective puddles of a red-brick street. Additionally, Felix and Sara collaborate on boudoir images; Felix snaps shots while Sara draws on her experience as a former model to suggest poses, backgrounds, and clothing options.

Hoping to revive the culture of the neighborhood butcher shop, with its personalized service, attention to detail, and artful products, restaurant-industry veterans Justin Rosberg and Jason Parent took a gamble on their first New Hampshire butcher shop in 2003. Dubbed The Meat House, their store quickly earned a foodie following, spawning additional franchise locations across the country. Today, The Meat House’s Mission Viejo location stocks fine cheeses, prepared side dishes, other gourmet grocery items, and hundreds of wines alongside the usual selection of traditional and exotic meats. Butchers also explain how to prepare each hand-carved cut of meat, sharing recipes, best slicing practices, and cooking techniques for giving pork chops the flavor of justice.

The staff members at Sylvan Learning's numerous centers understand that each child learns differently. Therefore, they don’t try to implement a uniform tutoring system; instead, they design custom lesson programs based on the results of a skills assessment using diagnostic tools and one-on-one interviews.

Tutors work with students from pre-kindergarten through grade 12, illuminating topics ranging from basic reading and writing to remembering complex algebraic formulas without having them tattooed on your chest. Many of Sylvan’s instructors work in local schools, so they are intimately familiar with common curricula and understand how to gear lessons toward optimal results. Camps and after-school and summer classes can ready high-schoolers for the rigors of the ACT or the SAT, or they can help students to wow college-admissions officers with their superior essay-writing skills.
