Uptown Diner?s chefs serve classic breakfast and lunch dishes with creative twists. They revamp the waffle with a topping of cooked cinnamon-apple chunks, caramel, whipped cream, granola, and cinnamon sugar. And chocolate-chip cookie-dough and pineapple upside-down pancakes are among their other sweet breakfast options. Those with recently pulled sweet teeth can check out the catfish breakfast or one of five varieties of eggs benedict. During lunchtime hours, chefs toss cashews into a chicken-salad sandwich and serve the Uptown burger on thick-cut sourdough toast.
At The Tea Garden, the brewers can blend exactly 2,331,091 drink possibilities. Besides iced black or green tea, they whip up iced tea lattes or chai shakes, with or without sippable tapioca pearls or fruit jellies in flavors such as pineapple and green apple. If someone needs to warm up or seek vengeance upon the snow for covering their car, the tea experts can create hot tea lattes or simply brew a cup of tea with 1 of more than 50 loose-leaf tea varieties, most of which are fair trade and organic. Art from local artists adorns the walls at The Tea Garden, and on weekend nights, ears prick up at the sounds from a live DJ or jazz players.
SpaNails has been in the thick of the nailcare industry for more than 10 years. Its technicians assuage stressed hands and feet with quality services, such as standard and deluxe manicures and pedicures. Once talons have been thoroughly groomed, staffers clothe them in garments of polish by Shellac or OPI. They also offer french manicures, nail repairs, and nail sets adorned with fashionable designs, which are more attractive and less deadly than retractable adamantium blades.

US Air Force and Army veteran SGT Tim Peterson designs military-inspired workouts with a team of trainers trained under a meticulous 12-month curriculum. He leads one-hour boot-camp workouts, motivating 5?20 participants to race through a series of full-body exercises that boost heart rates and draw sweat to the surface by promising it a warm sweatshirt to sink into. Peterson mixes up each session, coupling military-style calisthenics with yoga or speed training with kickboxing. In addition to the group sessions, he also works one-on-one with guests during personal-training sessions, honing in on muscle groups to work out and shouting at specific joints that underperform.
