Imperial Cleaners' experienced garment-cleansing specialists call upon more than 50 years of experience to rejuvenate textile investments and household items. During each dry-cleaning treatment, the highly trained team gently removes encrusted stains and dirty smudges from water-averse items such as sweaters ($5.50) and pants ($6.95). Pressing, folding, and packaging services also accompany each treatment to provide dresses ($13.50) and two-piece suits ($13.75) with enough confidence to stand up during public appearances. In addition to clothing, Imperial Cleaners purifies and protects household items such as comforters ($25), linen sets ($15), and duvet covers ($18). The fabric-friendly solvents not only work to remove impurities, but they also strengthen fibers to prevent silhouettes from breaking in through the drapes ($1.50/pleat).
Allegheny Arts Gallery's instructors operate under the artistic eye of Robert Buchanan, an established purveyor of painted, sculpted, sketched, and vibrantly designed artwork. Each week, classes will comprehensively break down the techniques and workflows required to ease conceptual development. Elicit a smile from an inanimate object while pursuing still-life art, immortalize a mountain through carefully placed brushstrokes in the landscape art class, or canvas-capture the human body with a lasso of ink in figure drawing. Classes last two hours each.
The McGinnis Sisters specialty stores are run by the coincidentally named McGinnis sisters. This is a truly familial enterprise, founded by their mother and father in 1946. The daughters expanded the store's selection and gravitational pull throughout the years while still retaining the literal mom 'n' pop attention to detail and quality. Fresh and local products dominate the shelves in each of the cozy markets. Chicken and pork fill meat cases, while recently reeled catches grace the icy displays at the seafood counter. You'll find quality deli meats and even freshly prepared lunch sandwiches ($4.99–$5.99) at the in-house delicatessen. Follow your whiskers to sniff out locally acquired cheese or daily-made bakery sensations.
Though the term “boot camp” may conjure images of aggressive drill sergeants barking orders as their recruits struggle through grueling tasks, Body Proud Fitness Boot Camp sessions are much the opposite. Their enthusiastic trainers motivate patrons in outdoor boot-camp classes, issuing positive reinforcement as they work together to burn calories and excess fat through challenging, but not defeating, exercises. Each one-hour session is designed to promote fat loss with a varied routine of interval training that my involve weightlifting, push-ups, sit-ups, and plyometrics. Many activities require participants to band together to tackle obstacles, bolstering a sense of support and camaraderie. Instructors then lead exercisers in a cool down with yoga and stretching, leaving them more limber than a linguini noodle basking in a jacuzzi.
In addition to the calorie-blasting boot camps, Body Proud Fitness Boot Camp’s weight-loss specialties include one-on-one personal training and nutritional counseling. Clients gain access to the Truestar at-home training and nutrition programs, which lead them toward overall wellness with custom meal plans and supplements paired with tailored fitness routines.
