Although the big-picture motto “a clean home is a happy home,” guides the skilled staff members of Happy Homes during its detailed, in-depth cleaning packages, it's the little gestures that set them apart.

They also recognize that their customers spend a large part of their lives in vehicles and offer mobile car detailing and boat cleaning so that owners look and feel great when driving their boat down the highway.

Throughout the treatment areas at Spa Refresh, the gentle bubbling of water features lulls guests into relaxation as candlelight flickers upon the walls. It's a fitting setting for the pampering services that take place inside. Massages in particular feel like journeys, as they begin with a consultation to identify especially achy areas, continue with Swedish, deep-tissue, or hot-stone techniques, and conclude with complimentary showers. In private spa rooms, aestheticians perform five facials designed for sensitive, oily, and other skin types. Elsewhere, no-chip manicures and pedicures shield digits so clients don't have to wear concrete mittens.

At the annual Das Oktoberfest block party, friends and families converse over brats, hot dogs, and drinks with the peace of mind that proceeds benefit Hunger Task Force. Festival-goers gather in the Mader's parking lot at 11 a.m. for the kid-friendly, pet-friendly Brat Trot, where competitors don complimentary Oktoberfest hats before beginning the race. Trot participants then ring in the festival with a grueling 1.5-block walk, run, or ride on a giant Slinky to Pere Marquette Park. Each attendee makes the trek with a complimentary 12-ounce Oktoberfest beer or soda in one hand, accompanying a free Usinger brat or hot dog in the other. Once at the park, participants partake in a communal jubilee. Prior to the race, athletes can also compete for prizes in a contest for best costumed individual and team, or duke it out in a pig Latin spelling bee.
