At Smile Brite Dental, Dr. Alfonso Fernandez and his staff strive to keep teeth and gums healthy. Their dentistry services range from routine cleanings to x-ray-aided examinations. Equally important as the tools, though, is Dr. Fernandez's expert eye, which he has honed over two decades spent practicing dentistry.
Sensual Rhythms Cafe’s name pays homage to the local bands that take the eatery’s stage as often as possible. While live music creates a lively atmosphere, the kitchen whips up tapas, seafood, soul fare, and burgers to keep the sound of growling stomachs from drowning out the music.
Mrs. Winners nourishes hungry bellies with down-home comfort fare, such as juicy fried chicken, buttery biscuits, and hearty sides. Families and superhero alliances flock to Mrs. Winner's to divvy up heaping piles of fresh-fried golden chicken and wings doused in buffalo, barbecue, or lemon-pepper sauce. The chefs long for every guest to leave stuffed and satisfied, so they dish up ample portions of homestyle sides from baked beans to fried okra. Sips of Mrs. Winner's lauded sweet tea wash down breakfast-biscuit combos.
The Cake House & More's first-rate confectionery-crafters whip up a staggering selection of cakes, cookies, and cupcakes that are made from scratch each day. Handheld and homemade from family recipes, The Cake House's mouthwatering cake-grenades ignite taste sensors with flavorsome bursts of key lime, carrot, german chocolate, or coconut topped with buttercream or chocolate icing. Red velvet cupcakes save the living room drapes by swathing tongues in a more palate-friendly fabric, while dessert devotees who measure the value of their sweets solely by weight can trade today's Groupon for one-dozen rich pound cake cupcakes.
With machines set up in rows to encourage competition, many ordinary gyms cater to men's bodies and psychology, right down to the urinals that were "accidentally" installed in the women's locker room. At Curves, you'll move around a circuit of hydraulic resistance machines that have been designed to work with women's bodies and promote weight loss, protect against osteoporosis, and deal with arthritis. An experienced trainer is always nearby to help manage your machine maneuvering and your muscle making. Instead of fiddling with weight stacks and losing your momentum, the hydraulic machines use your body weight and fitness level to create resistance that matches your abilities, decreasing the risk of soreness or injury. Because traditional lift-and-lower motions create bulky muscles, each machine uses push-and-pull motions to create toned, lean muscles perfect for crushing a grapefruit without looking like you can.
Top 40 hits blast from speakers on the walls at Starlite Skating Center, sending skaters bouncing to the beat as they glide across the rink. Though the music is modern, the roller rink itself is a throwback: it's made of genuine hardwood maple, like the ones that were so popular in the 1960s. Zooming on top of it is as easy as picking up a pair of rental skates?but for those who?ve never traveled on eight wheels, the centers offer skating lessons, teaching students skills from basic balancing to skating while you're in a handstand.
The centers entertain families off the rink, as well. Players can test their skills on 50 arcade games, while littler children jump and swing in the padded playgrounds. The Sharpsburg location also has a laser tag arena, where siblings and friends square off in space-age shooting matches.
