Ed Jenuwine began selling cigars in 1947, and his brothers John, Jim, and Lee joined him shortly thereafter. In the years between 1947 and 1988, they moved their shop to three different locations, all within two blocks of the house they grew up in. Today, the cigar empire they built operates out of locations in Troy and Sterling Heights, both of which feature humidors larger than 2,000 square feet and are stocked with thousands of different brands of cigars. Both boast comfortable smoking lounges with large televisions and WiFi access to give puffers a peaceful place in which to blow smoke rings, relax, or summon the ghost of Groucho Marx. The Sterling Heights location also sees bartenders pouring 78 types of scotch and other libations and hosts live music on Thursday and Friday nights.
Magdalena Cap's training as an aesthetician began more than 33 years ago in Czechoslovakia, where she studied dermatology and cosmetology. Three years later, the licensed aesthetician opened her own spa, where she has continued providing European-style facials and spa services for the ensuing three decades. Magdalena is joined by a loyal staff of licensed cosmetologists, massage therapists, nail technicians, and electrolysis experts, many of whom have worked with her for more than 10 years. The staff undergoes continuing education in an effort to ensure that all of their facials, peels, and rejuvenating treatments take advantage of the most advanced techniques. Like a park ranger building a nest, the team also draws on a wide range of natural ingredients including pumpkin and seaweed.

Dr. Timothy Perozek, the official ophthalmologist of the Las Vegas 51s baseball team, and his squad at See Right Now bring the highest level of care to the examination and correction of maladjusted eyes. In the eye exam and contact-lens fitting, soul windows are carefully tested with a variety of lenses to root out conditions such as astigmatism and near- or shortsightedness, the leading reasons that so few children grow up to be astronauts, fighter pilots, and Batmen. Data in hand, Dr. Perozek can fit eye-hugging lenses to underperforming corneas, transforming myopic peepers into paragons of optical acuity. The squintily inclined also can opt for a pair of Lindberg ($550) or Blink frames ($195, including single-vision lenses) or simply pick up some Eyebobs reading glasses ($65) to make reciting the phone book even more enjoyable. Sunglasses from Prada ($225), Oakley ($150), and other premium brands keep pupils protected from glare and poker faces protected from the probing gazes of opponents.
