Brewburgers' chefs hoist the burger to the culinary kingdom's upper echelons by adding a splash of Guinness beer to their six-ounce ground-beef patties and a shot of bourbon to their tangy barbecue sauce. In addition to beef, grill commanders fashion patties from ground turkey, veggies, or steak, and accent the discuses with upscale add-ons such as crumbled blue cheese, roasted red peppers, or deep-fried monocles. The alcohol-tinged menu complements the drink selection of 16 draught beers and 15 wines.

Only she, her female client, and a female hair and makeup artist are allowed in her studio during man-free sessions, where she coaches her subjects through a series of flattering, sultry poses. The same day, Alyshia looks over each shot with her clients and decides which she’ll retouch and preserve as digital images or prints.
