One of the largest locally owned gourmet coffee and tea shops in the U.S., Barnie's offers more than 50 different gourmet coffees with 15 delectable flavors. Barnie's typically brews four different fresh coffees each day, and a ballroom of smoothies and lattes waltzes alongside mochas, espressos, and cappuccinos. Sit and sip a freshly brewed cup ($1.59+) or begin hoarding bags of pre-ground or whole-bean specialties such as Santa's White Christmas ($9.49/12 oz.)—a combination of Barnie's blended coffee with hints of coconut, sweet caramel, and vanilla guaranteed to keep you alert during the season when homes are most vulnerable to invasion by diabolically generous bearded elves. Recently unfrozen British cavemen can warm up with signature teas such as organic raspberry truffle and white-ginger peach, while all others can hose down tongue gardens with summer specials such as the Barnie Palmer ($2.29–$2.59), a blend of strawberry iced tea and mango lemonade.
Beauty may only be skin deep, but at Zolarium Tanning Studio, that's OK. Versed in a vast array of tanning and skincare services, the studio’s technicians help their clientele achieve golden-bronze hues without having to withstand the sun's creepy leer. Each one is Smart Tan certified, a benchmark that measures each operator's knowledge of ultraviolet light, safe tanning practices, and ability to disassemble a tanning bed should it become sentient. They use this knowledge to monitor each tanner in their studio simultaneously, through Zolarium's networked array of horizontal and vertical tanning beds.
The beautifying treatments don't stop at tanning; DaVinci teeth whitening, Evolv airbrush, and a plethora of skincare lotions help clients maintain all manner of youthful glows. Zolarium also keeps the community looking good, giving back through charitable efforts such as sponsoring the Denver Firefighter Calendar every year.
Before earning a set of scrubs and the title of Doctor of iDevice, each employee at iHospital?featured in the The Wall Street Journal?must first pass a series of technical certifications. Just as real doctors specialize in either plaster or papier-m?ch? leg casts, the technicians focus their abilities specifically on Apple devices, including iPhones and iPods, performing many repairs in minutes. The store also carries a range of accessories from brands such as LifeProof, OtterBox, and Speck.
The committed technicians at uBreakiFix restore fragile pocket appliances and entertainment consoles with an arsenal of original manufacturers' OEM parts and 15-minute service times. The repair team reunites customers with fresh new screens for HTC Evo 4G, iPhone 4, or iPhone 3G smartphones along with 90-day warranties. While waiting for trusty telephones, customers can enjoy lounging in a comfortable waiting area with TV screens and friendly staff members who serve caviar and wear tuxedo T-shirts. In addition to screen replacement, the circuit surgeons can provide water-damage diagnostics for iPads, game consoles, and Apple computers that have been waterlogged after haphazardly trying to surf the web.

Q&A with the Savers
When and how did you first develop a passion for your work?
We are a family business that started out just that way, helping out friends and family. This vision grew and we are now able to help our community.
What aspect of your job, or the services you offer, most often surprises people?
Since we offer fair advice that's not centered around selling you into a new contract or device, it make it easy for us to fix general problems with devices that most people didn't think you could fix.
Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?
Every person that is here working (our Savers) loves what they do. So it truly make us happy to service our customers and help them out.
As helpful as mobile devices are, they can be very touchy?and the technicians of iFixandRepair can set straight almost any kind of flare-up. Not only do they perform mail-in and drop-off repairs of shattered screens, water damage, and speaker and button issues, but they also replace batteries and do color conversions. If it's a phone case you're in the market for, they carry more than 1,500 designs compatible with Apple, Samsung, LG, and other popular brands. In fact, they sell nearly every type of accessory, as well as parts for DIY repairs.
