Whether for aesthetic reasons or to preserve and protect the paint, most car owners know they need to keep their ride clean. Yet, the lifeline of the car—the engine—doesn’t always receive that same respect. As dirt and mud cake onto it, combustion fails to escape and the car can easily overheat. That’s where an autopsy at Auto Asylum Car Care Center can, ironically, save a vehicle's life. The team begins with a comprehensive interior and exterior detail—complete with a clay-bar treatment, buff, and interior shampoo—before popping open the hood and treating the engine to a full degreasing and dressing.
Though the Autopsy treatment is Auto Asylum Car Care Center’s most comprehensive service, the team doesn’t turn its collective cheek on swifter arrangements. They dole out seven other packages, from a basic exterior wash to a Crazy Clean full detail that not only washes rides, but also puts unruly carpoolers in straightjackets.

Mixology Wine Institute's oenophilic classes teach aspiring mixologists and mixonomists how to craft a diverse roster of libations while regaling students with the rich history and social function of the cocktail. The seasoned staff—which includes a resident sommelier and beer experts—dispense thoughtful nuggets of drink-dispensing wisdom, such as ways to add flair to a bartending routine, various wine-and-food pairings, and how to win a cocktail-sword duel. Each session takes place in the institute's well-equipped classroom, which simulates a real bar setting with working soda guns, sinks, and a full catalog of liquors.
