At Fem Fatale Dance Studio, Rosalind Leath and Debra Cherveny pool a certification in dance education and professional ballet training to transform students into lithe, graceful artists. The duo teach everything from ballet and tap to modern and lyrical, and have developed children, adults, and skeletons in top hats with no prior experience into light-trippers capable of winning awards at regional and national competitions. Each season starts in September and runs through June, culminating with an annual dance concert that attracts around 2,000 guests.
Staffed by a team of trained massage therapists who have experience working with Olympic athletes and the Detroit Lions, SowGood Pamper Lounge performs over ten different types of massage. During signature warm Swedish treatments, bodies are draped in chamomile-infused hot towels that help loosen muscles and melt away the ice that forms around the hearts of those working in customer support. Deep-tissue, sports, and hot- or cold-stone treatments can help relieve back pain or chronic aches. In addition to standard massage treatments, the staff also specializes in lypossage, a noninvasive alternative to liposuction, and offers personal training.
Breweries, restaurants, your very own home—nowhere is off-limits for The Paint Social. A workshop leader gathers a rainbow of acrylic paint tubes, grabs a stack of 16x20 canvases, and uses a net to catch a gaggle of paintbrushes from the sky before hightailing it to that day's workshop location. If it's a Paint Brunch, the one-to-three-hour workshop will take place at a café. If it's a Taste & Paint, it'll be at a winery or brewery, and the session will include a tasting. If it's a private event, it'll be at someone's home. These social workshops aren't academic lessons. Instead, they're fun, friendly events that require no previous painting experience.
7 Bar & Grill might be so named for good luck, or for the number of 60-inch flat-screen televisions on the walls, but either way it sounds like some place you want to be. As the TVs broadcast sports games and other programs, visitors tip back 16-ounce drafts. On the surface, the place seems nothing more than a congenial spot to cheer on your favorite team, and perhaps indulge in a cocktail. The menu, however, reveals its devotion not just to traditional pub snacks, but also to restaurant-style meals.
The signature burger here isn't a simple lettuce-tomato-onion affair—it's built instead with provolone cheese, red pepper relish, and portobello mushrooms. If you crave a challenge, you might opt for the Big Boss, which puts two quarter-pound Angus patties on a three-layered bun. Other pub staples include cheese fries and chicken wings. The menu then steers into hearty territory with full dinners of lamb chops or rib eye steak. Though fish 'n' chips is indeed available, you can go a tad fancier by ordering a plate of seared Scottish salmon, or by eating the shrimp scampi out of a top hat. A list of nine specialty pizzas even features a shrimp pizza, dappled with red peppers, red onions, and herbs.
Throughout the course of their lives, people might spend several hours studying their hair in the mirror, but that qualifies very few of them to be trichologists. The branch of medicinal science known as trichology focuses on the study of the hair and scalp, and it’s a field that Agape Jordan is intimately familiar with, thanks to her certification. She puts her knowledge to use creating gentle, hair-restorative scalp treatments free of harsh chemicals. They are suited for those who suffer from a hair-loss disease such as lupus or those in the midst of chemotherapy.
She complements her specialized head-dressing treatments with skin-pampering services for all. Her epidermal services emphasize acne treatments, vitamin C restorative facials, and anti-aging treatments designed to repel the chief causes of aging: homework, bosses, and the undeniable loveliness of Florida.
