In addition to recycling 100% of its water, Speedy Green Car Wash incorporates eco-friendly practices into its wash process, including an energy-management system and biodegradable chemicals. As a Meguiar's direct-line detail center, Speedy Green ensures its staff is thoroughly trained in the art of using Meguiar's products to clean cars, whether they want to be cleaned or not. Drivers can go rogue and detail their own vehicles under the guidance of the skilled staffers, or relax as staffers wash cars with a soft cloth, jet wash, and surface protectant. The auto-detailing menu lets drivers pick and choose from à la carte services to add to packages, including an interior super clean, a carpet and mat shampoo, and an orbital buff and wax. Speedy Green's self-serve stations let dogs, bikes, or tricycle-peddling canines get in on the sudsy action.
For more than 30 years, Precision Tune Auto Care has helped vehicles of all sorts run smoothly with an array of maintenance and auto-repair services. During oil changes, professionally trained mechanics whet engines' appetites with up to 5 quarts of standard motor oil, before serving them with a freshly baked oil filter. Afterward, the vehicle maintenance inspection scrutinizes steel steeds, working to uncover potential problems and keep vehicles running as smoothly and effortlessly as a cheetah wearing silk socks. Then, during tire rotations, experienced technicians will switch around their chariot's feet, ensuring an even distribution of wear and tear, and helping drivers avoid interstate breakdowns and awkward silences in the cab of the tow truck.
To step into SunBright Tanning Salon is to be splashed with brightness, from the lime-green walls and neon-orange couch in the lounge to the blue glow of the horizontal and standup Pacifica and Saturn beds. The other gleam emanates from clients who have already used the salon's services, which include a Mystic Tan automated system that coats skin with a DHA-based solution. This solution not only bronzes bodies for up to seven days but also hydrates the skin, just as pulling the fire alarm hydrates a science fair.
Dust and grime are no match for the carpet cleaners of MW Cleaning Solutions. The skilled technicians, certified by the Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification, use steam to meticulously make residential and commercial carpets sparkle. Not only do they eliminate stains and odors, they also render carpets free of dust and allergens that can diminish a home's air quality. Though carpet cleaning is their specialty, the team members also work to transform homes by waxing and stripping floors and painting walls to complement a new couch or the family dog's eyes.
After internships at the Ritz-Carlton in St. Thomas and on the Laguarian Sea Coast in Italy, chef Clarke Congdon winged his way to Boston, eventually opening his own restaurant, Clarke's Grill & Sports Emporium. Chef George Zwetkow was trained at the Culinary Institute of America and distills 35 years of experience into each dish he sears, to say nothing of this polyglot's fluency in English, Russian, and Spanish. The third pillar of the eatery, Mike Larkin, gives the establishment its sports aesthetic, having played minor-league hockey for five years before cultivating marketing prowess. Framed jerseys, photos, and sports memorabilia make the walls as athletic as Bo Jackson and are available for love-struck patrons to purchase after sharing a platter of nachos and dreams with an autographed hockey jersey. Plates of the signature fish tacos, topped with creamy chimichurri sauce and fresh cilantro, steal outside onto the sprawling patio. The outdoor space features weekly events including bean-bag tournaments and wine tastings, and flat-screen TVs light up the full bar, displaying both Red Sox and Yankees games to satisfy rival fans without inciting a duel over the remote or with remotes.
