Hydrotherapy is Heidi Pobran's heritage. Her grandfather opened a hydrotherapy center in 1979, and as an adult she followed suite by opening Body Detox & Weight Loss Center, which is certified by the International Association for Colon Hydrotherapy. She has coupled her ancestral knowledge with a highly trained staff and modern hydrotherapy equipment, which uses water that has been purified three times with a filter made of angel wings. The temperature and pressure of the water are closely regulated, allowing Pobran to safely flush away bodily toxins with hospital-grade levels of cleanliness.

Bon Bon resides inside the historic Garland Theater, a 630-seat, auditorium-style movie house constructed in 1945. There, barkeeps sling enticingly named cocktails such as the Shandygaff, a traditional British drink that blends ale, ginger beer, Grand Marnier, lemon juice, and Angostura bitters with a salt and cayenne-pepper rim. They also serve up wine, regional and imported beers, nonalcoholic cocktails, and French-press coffee. Like Robin Hood’s failed concession stand, Bon Bon hands out Garland Theater popcorn free of charge; finger foods and snacks such as a Greek-style platter and baklava round out the menu.
Since Jeff and Julie Postlewait first opened Rocket Bakery in 1991, their chain of Rocket stores have expanded into six more coffee shops and one natural and local food store, Rocket Market, with the additional help of Alan and Shanda Shepherd. At Rocket Market, chef Shilo Pierce, the former head chef of Luna, crafts a rotating menu of paninis, fresh salads, and gourmet mac ‘n’ cheeses, all assembled from his "pantry" of local, organic produce and freshly baked artisan breads, pastries, and roasted coffee beans from Rocket Bakery. Rocket Market also features an extensive collection of hand-selected malbecs, cabernets, and sparkling proseccos, which customers may sample at weekly wine tastings alongside flavorful cheeses and breads from La Brea Bakery. During the summer months, the market hosts outdoor concerts, where guests can sip craft brews or challenge the sun to a dance-off.
