Whether you've got a flair for flares, an addiction to cigarette jeans, or you push toward pedal-pushing pedal pushers, The Blues Jean Bar has the stone-washed, pre-torn, or impeccable indigo of your dreams. The shop is designed like a tavern, keeping the savory styles of more than 40 top labels (for both men and women) “on tap.” Saunter up to the wood-hewn bar and ask the friendly denim-smith to whip you up a pair that combines your favorite wash, size, cut, and aroma. He or she will rifle through shelves stocked with labels such as Citizens of Humanity, 7 For All Mankind, and Red Engine to find your fittingest fit in the latest fashion, eliminating the drudgery of surfing wave after indistinguishable wave of blue. D Magazine, which recently named the bar the Best Place to Buy Jeans, calls it "almost as fun as a real bar." Prices range from $150 to $225, depending on the label and style.

Inspired by its surroundings, Cranberry Nail Spa devises treatments that are grounded in a sense of place. The signature spa manicures and jelly pedicures incorporate enzymes as well as fruit acids derived from cranberries, exfoliating the skin with products inextricably linked to the region's berry-laden bogs. From there, they can beautify fingers and toes with some more traditional spa products, including CND acrylic extensions and chip-resistant Shellac gel polishes. The facial treatments can hydrate and cleanse cheekbones with organic blends of fruit-, herb-, and vegetable-based skincare products. Cranberry Nail Spa’s team doesn’t neglect the bulk of the body, though; therapists render massages using modalities from shiatsu and qi gong therapy to deep-tissue pressure and putting one of those vibrating alarm clocks that can walk on your back.
