The grills in Billy’s Downtown Zulu’s kitchen crackle and hiss as meats, seafood, and vegetables are prepared for the restaurant’s Mexican and American dishes. Chefs whip up house-made tortilla chips, salsa, and guacamole for an array of taco, fajita, enchilada, and burrito plates, and American--style dinners are crafted by carving up T-bone steaks or hand-sculpting ground-beef burger patties into the likenesses of respected Revolutionary War generals. As servers tote steaming dishes to tables, bartenders dole out specialty margaritas and beers by the glass and pitcher.
In as little as 12 minutes, patrons can bronze their bodies in Tanning Haven’s Matrix bed. It is outfitted with more than 22,000 watts and six facial tanners. Less intense tanning options, such as base beds and standup beds, are also available and allow clients to relax for up to 25 minutes each session. For those wanting a glow sans UV rays, an airbrush tan or dip in a bath of melted pennies does the trick.
Freshwater pearls clinched together with 18-karat white-gold-plated clasps await nude necks, bare wrists, and stud-less earlobes within 24/30 Surplus' treasure trove, stocked with items from Midwest Service and Supply. Measuring 6.5–7.5 millimeters in diameter, the high-luster cream-rose orbs are set in an 18-inch knotted necklace, a 7.5-inch knotted bracelet, and a pair of stud earrings ready to add charm to outfits or pet rocks with pierced ears. A gemologist from Klingler Jewelers appraised the oyster-fruit strands as good uniformity, off round, and lightly spotted. Each set comes tucked into a white jewelry case calibrated for storing the set or presenting the pearls to a sweetheart, daughter, or downhearted store mannequin.
In 1960, brothers Tom and James Monaghan decided to get $500 together and buy local pizzeria Domi-Nick's in Ypsilanti, Michigan. More than 50 years later, the Monaghans had sold their creation, with more than 9,000 Domino's Pizzas peppering the globe from New Delhi to New York. The pizza chain's menu ranges from pizzas to pastas and boneless chicken wings, side-kicked by their bread sticks and bites, which simmer in garlic before being baked to golden crispiness. Since the reboot of their traditional recipe in 2009, Domino's now offers more than 37 toppings to craft a build-your-own pizza or decorate your neighbor's car.
For those looking for a pizza that takes a few unexpected turns, take a peak at Pint and Slice Angola's pies menu. The Red, White & Bleu comes swirled with alfredo and topped with roasted red pepper, chicken, bacon, and bleu cheese crumbles. The White Album lives up to its moniker with ricotta and parmesan mixed with garlic. There are traditional slices here as well, like the classic margherita, but the especially adventurous can craft their own creation, choosing from six types of sauces, seven meats, seven cheeses, and 13 veggies.
Guests can pair pies with a pint, including Warsaw’s Mad Anthony Brewing Co’s Auburn Lager on tap. Shiner Bock, Magic Hat, and other craft brews come in bottles. Pint and Slice Angola's no-nonsense room has black-and-white checked tabletops and a few cushy leather seats. If you’re not in the mood for pizza or beer, pick up a grinder, calzone, or breadsticks and cheesy bread.
