Over the past four decades, Seattle’s Best Coffee has built strong, ethical relationships with coffee farmers around the globe. Taste testers sample each coffee shipment a minimum of three times before putting it into rotation, which is an effective way to ensure quality flavor and to stay awake for five days straight without blinking. Other parts of their process are equally perfectionistic: once a blend joins the repertoire, it's classified into one of five levels of intensity—ranging from mild and light to dark and bold—so that customers can swiftly select the flavor profile they prefer. Before they're packaged for retail or ground and brewed in shops across the country, the beans take a long, slow tumble in a roaster whose heat is controlled via a carefully calibrated roasting curve. In store, the toasty base might be topped by hazelnut cream, caramel, or sprinkles and paired with quick-serve breakfast sandwiches and baked goods.
The blossom bundlers at Northlake Flowers and Gift Shop gather fresh flora and festive gifts into eye-catching arrangements that cater to a full calendar of holidays and special occasions. The Tie a Yellow Ribbon bouquet ($39.99+) rallies patriotic-hued blossoms such as red roses, white daisies, and blue delphiniums in a ribbon-wrapped vase fit for a Fourth of July barbecue or a date with Uncle Sam. Deliver birthday how-do-you-dos with a sextet of shiny mylar balloons ($29.99) in your choice of designs. Or, send sweet wishes with a cupcake in bloom, in which a layer of white carnations frosts a cake-shaped vase and cradles a wish-ready candle ($24.99). For the romance-ready set, the a-dog-able basket ($54.99) affords the colorful cuteness of a carnation puppy without the exorbitant vet bill, and a modern rectangular vase of pink roses ($59.99) arrives topped with a stylish butterfly pick to woo the heart of any nature lover or hungry praying mantis.
One of seven Tickel-family spine shifters, Dr. James Tickel treats Chicagoland vertebrae with expertise honed over a lifetime of international healing stewardship. The doctor kicks off each patient's inaugural session by evaluating their joints, muscles, and nerves individually and in concert, uncovering any of chiropractic's myriad treatable conditions, including tennis elbow, allergies, headaches, and general tension after a summer job subbing for Atlas. Tickel's certified un-crookers specialize in upper-cervical-specific work and sports-focused therapies, with other healing services including therapeutic modalities and multiple methods of massage.
Melding classic regional Mexican recipes with the spice and energy of a cantina, Alejandra's chefs craft a menu that provides travel-hungry taste buds with a passport to flavor. Jumbo shrimp sizzle with the piquant spices of homemade salsa in the a la veracruzana (a $10.95 value), and the grilled skirt steak tampiqueña satisfies meat cravings with a sliced poblano chile and a cheese enchilada on the side (a $13.95 value). The costillas a la parrilla invite appetites to admire a generous, full slab of Mexican-style barbecue ribs as they lounge saucily on a bed of rice, vegetables, and optional throw pillows (a $17.95 value). Satiate an herbaceous appetite with the chiles rellenos, which offer up a sumptuous stuffing of cheese and corn, encased within a green-pepper shell (a $7.95 value). Or, discover the shredded chicken center hidden beneath the soft surface of classic enchiladas, colorfully topped with cilantro, green onions, melted cheese, and a choice of rojas, verdes, or mole sauce (a $9.95 value). Chilly fruit lends color and a heady sweetness to red wine in the included pitcher of sangria, a vivid and robust concoction perfect for sharing with a date or for distracting a charging bull.
Ixchel Muhlberger has at least two ways to treat each patient who walks into Mayan Moon Healing. First, the licensed massage therapist can use soothing massage strokes to increase circulation and ease muscle tension, not to mention relieve pain and even improve athletic performance. But for problems that massage can't help, she can call upon her background in Oriental medicine to provide acupuncture treatments, which improve energy flow and help promote the body's self-healing properties. Taking these two talents together, she can customize her treatments to address a wide range of problems, from anxiety and depression to chronic pain, migraines, and sleep disturbances. Though her massages and acupuncture treatments can help clients deal with all these issues, Ixchel specializes in orthopedic injuries, women's health, and pain management.
