Convenient Cleaners transforms dirt-ridden duds into elegant apparel with ultramodern equipment and 100% biodegradable, noncaustic solvents, as well as complimentary pickup and delivery services. Formal and casual garb alike, including men's shirts ($1.95+), blouses, slacks, and skirts ($5.25 each), can bask in a shrink-free cleansing more thorough than pumping soap bubbles into the closet. Blazers ($6.25 each) shed unsightly stains left from evenings of tossed cocktails, and suits ($10.95 each) of silk, rayon, cotton, or polyester regain youthful resplendence with the help of a staff that hand presses garments at specialized stations—ensuring that every pleat or hem remains as crisp or intriguingly rumpled as the designer intended.

Formerly the Lingerie Football League, the Legends Football League stands as the "fastest-growing pro sports league in the nation" according to NBC Sports correspondent Rick Chandler. That success owes much to the league's unique format, which pits two exclusively female teams in alluring uniforms against each other in full-contact football games on a 50-yard field. Donning football pads and helmets over their revealing performance wear, the female athletes block, juke, and sprint uninhibited by such frivolous gear as the NFL's heavy chainmail hauberks.

At Kiss N Tale Pole Fitness Studio, pole dancing isn't just for women. The instructors view the sultry style as a calorie-torching, muscle-toning workout for all. As students progress, they can work their way up the school's seven class levels, starting with introductory Kitty Kat Pole lessons and ramping up to Headliners, a class that teaches tricks even more impressive than hiding behind a dance pole silently for two hours. As instructors teach pole moves, they draw on their professional backgrounds in disciplines such as ballet and belly-dancing, which also come in handy during chair-dance and burlesque classes.

Tash Johnson & Co. specializes in creating fun for any crowd. The company organizes events that range in size from community storytime in elementary-school classrooms?founder Tash Johnson herself stops by to read?to summer festivals for hundreds of people, such as the annual Jazz in July event. It throws costumed Halloween balls and arranges a chance for everyone to get out of the office and head to a ranch for horseback-riding lessons, among other team-building activities. To the company's manager, though, the best part of any event is always the same: "[I like] seeing people happy, laughing, and having an amazing time. I also love when patrons come back to say that I exceeded their expectations and it was the best time they've had in a long time."

In creating a recipe for a romantic and pleasurable night out, few ingredients create the same synergy as wine, cheese, and jazz. The founders of Crumb&Cork put their spin on this formula by offering a menu with more than 28 artisanal cheeses and 40 wines from around the globe, which their patrons sip and sample amid an atmosphere permeated by live jazz music on Fridays and Saturdays. In an effort to encourage tastings, the owners sell their wines by the glass and decorate the space with comfortable furnishings so their clientele feel free to linger and chat.
