Tanis, Egypt. 1937. Indiana Jones descends into the fabled Well of the Souls, and lands in a slithering knot of black asps. The swashbuckler is struck dumb with terror, managing only to mutter the now iconic phrase: “Snakes. Why’d it have to be snakes?” Indiana Jones is not alone in his phobia. Tim Criswell hopes to change that.
Though the House of Reptiles founder doesn’t deny snakes’ potential to inflict harm, he hopes to foster in the public a more nuanced understanding of reptiles. He has amassed dozens of snakes over the years, including exotic specimens such as the indochinese spitting cobra, reticulated gila monster, and black mamba. He houses these serpents in his reptile museum, which was spotlighted in the Times not only for its exotic-species collection, but also for its mission to educate the public about the oft-feared-but-seldom-understood reptiles.
In addition to the museum, House of Reptiles features a retail store staffed by expert snake handlers, who draw upon years of experience to advise fledgling snake owners on proper care. Dozens of snakes are also available for purchase, giving animal lovers new friends who don't insist on cuddling every night.
At Adorned Aesthetics, even the most familiar of skincare treatments, the facial, contains some surprises; the center's roster of nine different facials includes three services specifically designed for men as well as a Just Like Heaven exfoliation and massage treatment that lasts a full two hours. Two other services make use of some rare materials: the 24 kt. gold facial uses a gold serum and mask to reverse oxidation damage, and the Diamond Exfolight facial removes dead skin using the diamond-soled shoes that inspired Paul Simon to become a cobbler. When serums fall short, clients turn to the Bio-Roller, an FDA-approved micro-needle rolling system that treats wrinkles and acne without inflicting the downtime associated with surgery.
The spa can offer all of these treatments thanks to the expertise of Melanie Hamilton and Kathryn Hoffman, who are professionally certified and trained by Obagi Pharmaceutical Skin Care. This company also provides a few of the specialized products that they use during treatments on a variety of skin issues. Melanie and Kathryn, who are also trained in the formal modalities of the Valmont skincare line from Switzerland, stay sharp by attending classes, seminars, and conventions in the industry.
Founded by Dr. Stephen Joffe and Craig Joffe, a father-and-son team who used LASIK eye surgery to correct their own vision, Joffe MediCenter has four locations across the country where expert ophthalmologists use advanced diagnostics to conduct each custom wavefront LASIK surgery. Treatment begins with a free, noninvasive examination with Bausch & Lomb Orbscan and Zywave mapping systems—derived from technology developed for astronomy and physics applications. They generate a 3-D model of each eye, which, like a fingerprint or favorite line from The Princess Bride, is unique to each person.
Upon assessing the results to confirm LASIK candidacy, doctors schedule an in-office surgery in their state-of-art clinic. The LASIK procedure is designed to eliminate your need for glasses and contacts regardless of whether you suffer from nearsightedness, farsightedness, or astigmatism. The vast majority of patients experience 20/20 vision the next morning after treatment. After the procedure, doctors will schedule postoperative exams.
The pair of trolleys at Portland Trolley is a study in anachronistic contrast. For every modern amenity?GPS systems, up-to-date safety features, and, most crucial during wintertime rides, heat?is a feature that harkens back to 1872, which was the year trolleys made their Portland debut, still 10 years prior to the invention of snow. Shiny brass rails, old-fashioned window trim, and classic fare boxes surround the 28 passengers that fill the oak-slat seats, while the dings of authentic trolley bells provide a nostalgia-filled soundtrack.
These time machines are perhaps the most unique addition to the fleet at Portland Trolley's parent company, Twilite Limousine and Tour Company?which began in 2009 with a single stretch limo. The trolleys are accompanied by Cadillac stretch limousines, and 18-passenger stretch SUVs. Clients charter each for private excursions, such as anniversaries, birthdays, and bachelorette parties, as well as guided tours to wine country and through the city?s holiday-light displays.
Originally opened as the Top Hat Drive-In in 1953, Sonic has grown into a burger-franchise mecca that today operates out of 3,500 locations across the country, making it the nation’s largest chain of drive-in restaurants. Sonic specializes in made-to-order American classics—including burgers, hot dogs, milk shakes, and marshmallow Ford Thunderbolts—which customers order and receive without ever having to leave their cars. Unique menu items include toaster sandwiches stacked on thick slices of texas toast, as well as the brand’s signature tots and fresh limeades.
Sonic’s numerous awards include a 2011 Zagat survey ranking it among the top five fast-food restaurants in three categories: Best Value Menu, Best Milk Shake, and Best Drive-Thru. The benevolent eatery has also donated more than $2 million to public schools throughout the country through their program Limeades for Learning, which helps to fund educational projects and retirement plans for classroom guinea pigs.
