Despite the establishment's lack of interior dining space, the menu printed beneath Dixie BBQ's walk-up window reveals the vast scope of its barbecue selection. Chefs slather slabs of ribs in tangy sauce and plate hunks of smoked chicken, pork, and beef. They also serve up a dozen sides, including fried pickles, baked beans, and hot fries, a customer favorite.
Danette Newton was skeptical of the ingredients in the face washes she used. As a biomedical engineer, she decided to take matters into her own hands, and turned to nature for the answers. Using botanical elements, Newton began to make her own skincare products, and soon Simply Me Naturally was born. Today, Danette has expanded her business into a wide variety of products not just for the skin, but also for hair, lips, and even gentle products for babies.
The nonjudgmental and welcoming atmosphere at Complete Training reflects the mentality of owners and certified trainers Wil Blowe II and Kyle Winton. The two lead group boot-camp glasses for all skill levels packed with rigorous or beginner circuit training. During these sessions, Wil and Kyle use a variety of equipment designed to make the muscles work, including BOSU exercise balls, resistance bands, and dumbbells. They also bring their extensive sports backgrounds and positive attitudes to one-on-one training sessions, and Wil can lend his decade of experience in tumbling to train individuals interested in doing backflips, front flips, or profoundly athletic pancake flips.
At Chloe Hair Colour & Design, an Aveda salon, the staff kicks off every visit with a thorough consultation that charts the proper path toward personalized hair fashion. They whisk guests past a massive selection of Aveda products toward black leather salon chairs or black leather loungers, the latter of which nestle up next to a color bar.

At Lighten Up Salon & Spa, a black-and-white checkered ceiling looks down on hardwood floors as aestheticians bustle away at pampering, styling, and bronzing their guests. As clients relax in cherry-red swiveling chairs, stylists shape brows, root out unwanted hair with wax treatments, and transform coifs with perms, haircuts, highlights and lowlights, and color treatments. Forsaking its name, Lighten Up turns down customers’ white balance with tailored airbrush-tanning treatments that imbue skin with a beach-ready bronze without clients having to bake under the sun or marinate in a bathtub filled with third-place trophies.
