If humans were shaped like perfect rectangles, tanning would be easy. But since human bodies consist of various curves and nooks, the team at Tropical Lights Tanning Salon has acquired ergonomic tanning beds with built-in facial bulbs. Custom airbrush tans also adapt to body shapes, with expert technicians bronzing clients evenly and naturally.
Honey-sugar scrubs, paraffin-wax dips, and hot-stone foot massages are a few of the add-ons the team at Angel Tips uses to comfort guests. They spread these relaxing services across an extensive menu of spa manicures, lemon pedicures, and Swedish massage. Well versed in skincare, the versatile staff draw excess oil from pores with oxygen facials and deep-cleaning masks, which leaves skin smooth—almost as smooth as their face- and body-waxing services do.
Located in the heart of City Island, Alehouse City Island makes its mark on the local gastropub scene with creative versions of classic pub cuisine. Chef Stefano molds and grills distinctive burgers such as the Bullburger, a 10-ounce Angus-beef patty topped with grilled onions, condiments, and a fried egg. Eight varieties of local Schaller & Weber hot dogs pepper the menu, including the Baconator, a bacon-wrapped hot dog decorated with grilled onions, condiments, mayo, and pickled jalapeño. An impressive beer list of more than 50 beers washes down the hearty fare.
With its signature food challenge, the Hell Hound, Alehouse City Island dares its most adventurous customers—those who laugh in the face of danger, and laugh harder at the concept that helmets even exist.

Each contender gets one glass of water and 2.5 minutes to finish the Hell Hound, forever earning bragging rights and a place on the list of champions.
