Since its origins as a converted parking garage, Alamo Drafthouse Cinema has ushered film-lovers of all breeds into its auditoriums, even gaining a following among Hollywood legends; Quentin Tarantino has been known to host five-day movie marathons at Alamo. The theater has earned that reputation by making moviegoing a personal experience, from the menu of handcrafted snacks and locally brewed beer to the completely ad-free presentations before shows. Alamo?s ninja servers pick up written food and drink orders throughout the movie and serve moviegoers directly at their seat. The staff enforces a strict no-talking, no-texting policy by kicking out any offenders, falling just short of yanking them from their seats with a giant's shepherd's crook.
Both first-run blockbusters and classics are projected onto Alamo's silver screens in crisp 35-millimeter or digital format. Meanwhile, surround speakers immerse audiences in the cinematic soundscape, whether they're seated in one of the expansive theaters afforded to blockbuster reels or the more intimate spaces reserved for indie films wound around tiny bobbins. Despite Alamo's vow of silence, fan-centric Quote-Along and Sing-Along nights encourage guests to shout their favorite lines, and actors, directors, and other celebrities often attend special screenings to lead in-depth discussions. These exclusive events have led to acclaim for Alamo from publications such as Entertainment Weekly, which called it ?one of America's most fanatically unique moviegoing experiences,? and Wired, which opined that it "might just be the coolest movie theater in the world."
Close your eyes. Picture a country cottage surrounded by rose gardens. Now walk in and lie down. A team of massage therapists stands at the ready to apply warm towels to your sore muscles. Just as the first whiff of lavender and peppermint reaches your nose, you feel their practiced hands press down on your knotted muscles and overworked joints. Or maybe you feel warm and soft as a layer of gentle exfoliants, botanical body butters, and moist towels wrap your body to soothe and nourish your skin. After what feels like hours, you slowly rise from the table, muscles loose and skin soft. Before you can say thank you, you're handed a free bottle of spring water to wash down a selection of sweet chocolates. The scent of aromatherapy oils fades away as you leave the spa haven, and the smell of fresh roses ushers you outside. The country opens up in front of you. Now open your eyes.

Structure Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork owner and certified massage therapist Jeanette Falu-Bishop began her career on U.S. military bases in Germany, donating her healing hands to soldiers and their families. Guided by input from a complaining back, screaming shoulders, or softly lowing calves, clients choose one of five modalities ranging in intensity and technique to respond to their particular aches. Palms glide over sensitive areas during popular Swedish massages, where a combination of connective strokes and light to medium pressure stimulates circulation to gently relieve physical tension. Russian sports massages and deep-tissue techniques may help relieve joint tension and rout out hidden knots or copies of War and Peace, and props such as river rocks or bamboo wands aid fingers in pinpointing pain and unclogging inner wellsprings of peace.

The first step to getting healthy at Heeling Sole? Kick off your shoes. The team here specializes in barefoot massage therapy—also known as ashiatsu—during which, therapists use their bare feet to apply concentrated pressure, stimulating the lymphatic system while simultaneously easing pent-up tension. But that's not all these feet can do; the staff also dole out barefoot ashi-thai massage, a technique that uses a combination of deep pressure and vigorous jostling movements to improve circulation, encourage detoxification, and jiggle out accidentally swallowed Jolly Ranchers. Yoga classes, meanwhile, concern themselves with the health of soles and souls, with study in styles such as vinyasa flow, hatha flow, and restorative yoga.
