Like a trail of breadcrumbs in a dense forest, organic spa treatments guide guests to beauty and graceful, healthy aging at Vita Revive's European-inspired retreat. An expert team, including clinical aestheticians, a certified nutritional consultant, and a master reiki practitioner, reflects Vita Revive’s hybrid identity as both a wellness center and a spa. Together, these professionals blend Eastern and Western approaches, soothing stress with the ancient kneading of massage and targeted pressure of reflexology while fighting fine lines and wrinkles with modern facial treatments that rely on glycolic acid, pressurized oxygen, and microcurrents. Advanced technology fuels the spa’s infrared sauna and infrared body wraps, whereas old-fashioned water works its timeless wonders during a Vichy shower, whose high-pressure jets create a rain massage so that clients don't have to squeeze into their dishwasher for a full cycle.
As its name implies, the spa and wellness center incorporates USDA-approved organic ingredients into its treatments, crafting body wraps with seaweed algae extracts, moor mud, and Mediterranean wine and honey. The space itself also pays homage to the natural world with the earthy beige tones and bamboo flooring that outfit seven private treatment rooms.
After 25 years of service, to the auto-maintenance professionals at Carney Tire and Car Care Center, the only thing more important than nurturing their relationship with the environment is nurturing their relationships with their clients. Inside their shop?which is heated by 100% recycled oil?they spruce up downtrodden rides with repairs and inspections of belts and hoses, as well as basic services such as oil changes and battery replacement. They break out advanced equipment to perform complex transmission maintenance and computerized engine analysis. Carney also serves as a title and tag service as well as a Maryland state inspection center. Their tire shop stocks quality rubber from brands such as Goodyear, Yokohama, Bridgestone, and Michelin, which keeps tires hugging the road like a bear cub hugs its favorite teddy human. Putting client comfort in the forefront, Carney Tire and Car Care Center has appointed their waiting area with plush leather couches and a large flat-screen TV.
Sully’s strives to keep it classy. With a clean-comedy policy and a two-monocle dress code, the club hosts a lineup of regular and traveling comedians who have honed their timing everywhere from Comedy Central to HBO to Last Comic Standing. Winner of the 2011 World Series of Comedy in Las Vegas, Ryan Dalton takes the mic on August 17 and 18, opining with in-your-face glee on the health risks of exercise and vegetables, and the best way to inform someone they are not a triceratops. Also taking the stage is Nick Cantone, who transforms his mustache into comedy gold by meditating on its effect on his dating life and the sophistication it embodies. While laughing along, audiences can munch on classic pub eats or sip signature cocktails such as the Silly Sully, a blend of Malibu rum, blue curacao, and pineapple juice.

When she isn’t taking time to work with her many youth-based organizations, owner Lakiesha Jernagin leads her team of licensed cosmetologists as they help enhance the natural beauty of customers with hairstyling services, nailcare, and facials. The salon is split into two floors, providing plenty of space and privacy for customers. On the first floor, conditioning services repair hair damaged from the sun’s rays or the moon’s disapproving gaze, while cuts and colors update looks to accentuate facial features. Damaged nails regain strength on the second floor, where pedicure chairs and manicure stations reside. Inside private treatment rooms, spa services such as facials and massages ward off tension.
Herb & Soul chefs B. Taylor and David Thomas operate under a simple mantra with several implications. When they say their mission is to "feed the soul," they mean that their fried chicken, short ribs, and Georgia bread pudding are more than just items on the menu—they’re nourishing reminders of the home-cooked meals of childhood.
They also mean that they do their best to foster long-standing relationships with local farmers and stock their small, down-home establishment with organic produce, grass-fed meats, and sustainably sourced fish. Herb & Soul's support of sustainable agriculture benefits the environment as well, since the restaurant converts its waste into compost and recycles its oil on the kitchen’s slip 'n' slide.
