Give them two days, and the team at Jackie's Ice Cream will grant your wish?assuming that it can be made into an ice cream, of course. The shop's dessert specialists happily take requests, making custom batches of whatever ice cream flavor is required to satisfy their patrons' sweet teeth and even sweeter taste buds. But chances are a favorite variety is already on the menu, which includes creamsicle, toasted almond fudge, and coffee and glazed donuts among its dozens of homemade options. Beyond inventive scoops, Jackie's also crafts ice cream cakes, cupcakes, and cake in a jar, which is exactly what it sounds like.
TurkeezRus transforms its turkeys into deep-fried, 12–14 pound feasts, and each part of the bird can be customized with your choice of eight flavorful upgrades including peach bourbon and savory garlic. Since every fowl features two legs, two thighs, two breasts, and two wings, customers can pick and choose a total of 64 different poultry permutations for their next Christmas feast, New Year's party, or Arbor Day goat sacrifice. Stash a shot of Georgia peaches and genuine bourbon in the leg, just like Uncle Walt does with his wooden one, or fill both flappers with gourmet lemon-pepper marinade and stuff the other parts with butter curry. If turkeys bring back painful memories of an extremely jowly ex, use your Groupon instead on a honey praline ham ($37 with tax) or a Cajun deep-fried chicken ($17.50 with tax).
JMJ Enterprises is a gleefully busy workshop, keeping fashionable investments intact with professional upkeep of shoes, clothing, and leather accessories. Through each heel repair, lifespans of foot clothes are lengthened and patrons protected from unfortunate spills, while handbag fixes ($6–$50) prevent personal belongings from mingling with the ground. The seam surgeon takes careful measurements before clothing alterations ($10+), which he completes within 24 hours. Mends to zippers on jeans ($15), dress pants ($12), and women's dresses ($15) allow time travelers to keep 19th-century World's Fair visitors in utter disbelief.
At Luxury Wash, the first thing cars will catch in their headlamps is a hand outstretched and ready as the detailer waits, prepared to lather cars up with gobs of soap. Proudly sporting a letter of commendation from President Obama, Bentley Brandon used to be one of those detailers when he started working at the wash at age 12, sudsing up cars himself until he climbed through the ranks of management to become the current owner. Today, most of the wash’s cleaning, waxing, and detailing services are still done by hand. With painstaking precision, the staff of detailers performs interior and exterior deep cleans—protecting paints with stage-one and stage-two protective waxes, flushing out upholstery stains with shampoo, and cleaning engines with painstaking meticulousness. The company also dispatches its technicians and cleaning products to clean cars on location, whether vehicles are resting in their driveway or marching in a picket line in protest of dwindling parking-space dimensions.

After making a selection, you can hit the lounge to enjoy a smoke with fellow enthusiasts, discussing the finer points of the hobby and engaging in debates about what made Cuba sink.
