Each month, the writers in Main Line Today magazine cover the individuals, issues, and attractions salient to the inhabitants of Philadelphia's western suburbs. Though it is composed mostly of features of the dining or home-and-garden variety, the regional lifestyle publication also branches out into articles on noteworthy local spa treatments and top doctors and specialists. Contributors additionally profile some of the Main Line's most newsworthy residents, one such person of interest being kineticist Bill McHugh, who spent four decades building an aluminum and steel amusement park for squirrels, birds, and humans who are really, really terrified of heights.
The staff at New Balance of Philadelphia & South Jersey isn't concerned with simply selling shoes—their mission is to pair customers with the footwear that will carry them comfortably through life’s arduous steps. Understanding that an ill-fitting pair of athletic shoes can cause pain to joints and potentially damage knees, hips, and the back, associates measure the length and width of each client's foot and conduct a gait analysis to chart the trajectory of their stride when walking normally or running through ball pits. The data are collected to help the staff match clients with their ideal shoe, keeping them running longer and looking good while doing so.

The staff at InsideOut Complete Car Wash boasts years of experience, offering efficient automobile cleaning and customer comforts that cater to an oft-rushing clientele. Car-wash services include five outside-only washes, which enable cars to shake off the griminess of motorized life on a quintet of occasions, banishing dirt, crumpled traffic cones, and caked-on road rage. A two-step wash expunges any clinging impurities, and a final rinse and towel dry leave steel skin buffed and pristine. The InsideOut washes also tend to each car's interior, an area criminally underappreciated by casual onlookers. In addition to the outside-only scrubbing, meticulous dirt hunters examine every inch of the interior to vacuum out dirt, ancient candy specimens, and memories of each car’s less pleasant past life. After a refreshing window swab, vehicles roll out of the garage glistening like newborn Lamborghinis, ready to intimidate grimier cars on the highway.
As the only professional coed team sport in the continental United States, Alaska, and Hawaii, World TeamTennis provides tennis enthusiasts with an adventurous approach to match play. A single match consists of two teams made up of high-ranking men's and women's professionals. These four-player teams (two men and two women) battle one another across a five-set gauntlet—the one-on-one onslaught of men's and women's singles, the low-five-laden lusciousness of men's and women's doubles, and the gender-juxtaposed jubilation of mixed doubles. Whoever wins the majority takes home bragging rights and, possibly, temporary immortality. This year's Philadelphia Freedoms roster features fast-serving superstar Andy Roddick alongside pros such as Ramon Delgado and Courtney Nagle.
