The instructors of French Kiss Fitness model their group classes after the acts of performers such as Pink, the pop star who thrilled audiences at the 2010 Grammys with a dance routine derived from circus acrobatics. Like a dark room plastered with Lou Ferrigno posters, the studio's workout style both develops and shows off muscle. Fourteen poles support physiques as they execute moves that build core strength; off the pole, students learn floor- or chair-based routines to replicate at home. Aerial classes build center strength with the help of silk ropes, dangling hoops, and a trapeze. For more traditional workouts, students can attend core-strengthening Pilates classes or yoga classes to relax the mind and body.
The Nose Wine Bar collects rare and unusual vintages from across the globe, pairing bouquets with a range of hot and cold small plates amid the soft light of flickering candles. A rotating wine menu culls the creations of French, Italian, and Californian vintners and includes three-wine-tasting flights to tempt indecisive diners and three-headed wine critics alike. Rows of gleaming bottles line the walls as creamy leather seating surrounds intimate two- and four-person tables. On Friday and Saturday, live musicians vibrate wineglasses and awaiting eardrums with solo melodies.
“Dry-clean only.” These words on a garment tag can make people pretty nervous, resulting in hundreds of neglected sweaters, slacks, and dresses. Around the Block Cleaners confronts this issue head-on by offering free after-hours pickup and delivery for its dry-cleaning, alteration, and laundry services. Without the hassle of working around narrow business hours, customers can also drop their garments off themselves, which is an ideal solution for people whose commutes take them by the family-owned shop or who have a debilitating fear of deliverymen.

In 2011, brothers George and Charbel Ghaby became business partners as well as siblings when they opened the first Rounds Premium Burgers. The concept for their joint venture was simple: a classic, American, build-your-own-burger stand that combined quality meats with surprising toppings. The idea caught on, and the burger joint soon spread to multiple locations, gathering awards as it went. Recently Rounds won Best New Restaurant in Pasadena Weekly's Best of Pasadena 2013, and it also secured top honors on a Best in Chow episode titled "Best Burger in Hollywood".
Rounds take the concept of customization to the next level. Diners can choose from four types of patties ranging from fresh-ground chuck to a homemade veggie burger. From there, they can pick from 10 types of sauce (thousand island, chipotle aioli, jalapeno ranch amongst them), six premium cheeses (American, pepper jack, bleu cheese crumbles), and 16 extra toppings, ranging from classics like bacon and grilled onion to surprises such as peanut butter and jelly and grilled pineapple. Then, the only thing left to do in choose what holds the whole delicious meal together. Traditionalists can pick a fresh classic, wheat, or pretzel bun, while those with dietary restrictions might prefer to have their burger wrapped in lettuce or stuffed inside an envelope and mailed to their nutritionist along with a break-up letter.
