The self-proclaimed home of the $1 draft, Dooleys Tavern keeps 20 beers cascading from their taps. Those suds complement the chefs' pub food, which includes American tavern classics such as half-pound burgers and up to 50 chicken wings doused in a choice of four sauces. The draft beer house also concocts American dishes with an Irish twist such as corned-beef sliders and a pizza filled with mashed potatoes and topped with bacon and red onions.
Seven nights a week, Dooleys’ three locations keep guests entertained until 2 a.m. on an outdoor patio, in a room full of classic bar games, and with plenty of HDTVs showing the game. The trio of taverns also accommodates up to 100 guests for private parties. Additionally, the Mount Clemens location pairs feasts with sidesplitting routines from standup comics in Carmen's Showroom.
Spicing up sex lives since 1992, Cirilla’s stocks an impressive collection of lingerie, accessories, and adult toys that makes it easy to see how it’s ended up on Nuvo's "Best Of Indy" list two years in a row.

When he cofounded his first sandwich shop in 1965, 17-year-old Fred DeLuca planned to use his profits to pay his way through medical school. But the combination of quality ingredients and friendly service at the shop?then called Pete's Subway?proved so popular that nine years later, he and his partner found themselves in charge of 16 locations across Connecticut, and Fred left behind his doctoring plans for a career in business.
Today, Subway restaurants number over 34,000 around the world?almost as many shops as there are sightings of Elvis buying cold cuts. At each location, staffers pile sliced ham, marinara-slathered meatballs, and other fillings into halved loaves of bread before customizing handhelds with tomatoes, shredded lettuce, and other healthy toppings plucked from chilled containers behind the counter. Salads free crisp veggies from bread's overprotective embrace, and crunchy baked chips or apple slices accompany entrees to tables. Subway's website also facilitates health-conscious eating by listing each item's nutrition information and fastest mile time online.

That's why Vikki Stoddart decided to help plus-size women find affordable clothes with her shop, Hips Resale Boutique. Designed for women from size 12 to 32, the shop carries in-season items that have been gently used, allowing shoppers to empty their closets of clothes that aren't being worm and refill them with new, colorful apparel.

Though it sports a façade with towering Doric columns, Marco’s Ristorante Italiano's dining area resembles a homey den; wood panels surround family-style tables and, behind a full bar, bottles of wine line exposed bricks that are softly illuminated by the glow of candles and a mounted television. In the kitchen, chefs follow the traditions of authentic Italians, layering pastas and wintertime outfits with warm meats and cheeses. They also drizzle white-wine sauce on succulent morsels of breaded chicken and veal. To add diversity to their Italy-centric menu, they also prepare a smattering of Mexican entrees such as enchiladas and quesadillas.
