"We like to think of our services like [an airline] on the ground," says Anthony, manager at Las Vegas Express. He oversees coaches and shuttles that make speedy trips from LA and Ontario to Las Vegas and back, with a quick layover in Ontario, where passengers can shop. While in LA, passengers can experience Los Angeles with activities such as shopping on Rodeo Drive or visiting Disneyland. Just like?or even better than?many airlines, the vehicles offer a few extra amenities, such as snacks, free drinks, and free Internet access. The staff also shows blockbuster movies during the road trip, possible thanks to ceiling-embedded TVs placed throughout the coaches' interiors and the staff's certified ability to operate a DVD player. They also have other important talents, which include CPR.

The spotless environment of Limon Nail and Spa Boutique embodies a grown-up princess-chic look. Yellow and white stripes run across the walls, giving the space the sweet, sunny feel of a candy shop. White Queen Anne's chairs cushion guests as their nails are treated with color by expert manicurists. The therapy room is decorated in purple, where massages rejuvenate clients and waxing services release unwanted hair so it can go live on a farm in the country.

For any one who has ever stared nervously from the back seat of a cab as a meter on the dashboard racked up dollars like a pool shark, a limousine ride can be a welcoming experience. For over a decade, G & A Limousine Service?s 24-hour service has been transporting guests in meter-free elegance aboard standard Lincoln Town Cars and eight-person stretch limousines. Whether heading to a wedding, night on the town, or the airport, guests sink into plush leather seating while surreptitiously checking for signs of UFOs through the moonroof. LED strip lighting illuminates evenings in style as on-board decanters pour libations into supplied glasses and stemware. Every trip is furnished with soft drinks and snacks, and guests are invited to explore the web using free WiFi.

Hamburger Hamlet has its roots in the original Hamburger Hamlet, an upscale burger joint opened in 1950 by actor Harry Lewis and his wife, Marilyn. Much like the studio system and rampant anti-Communist paranoia of that time, however, that Hamburger Hamlet is no more. In its place is a chain of restaurants that have retained the original's commitment to quality food, A-list service, and morose Act III soliloquies. The new Hamburger Hamlet's menu, overseen by executive chef Tony Zidar, updates much of the original Ham Ham fare while expanding upon the available eats. Still on the roster are burgers with beef, turkey, or veggie patties, such as the all-American classic cheeseburger ($9.95–$10.95) or the avocado-topped Marilyn Burger ($10.50–$10.95), all served with regular, mesquite, or garlic fries. On the new menu, however, are entrees such as a pan-roasted chicken served with spinach and garlic-parmesan fries ($16.95–$17.95), a barbecue meatloaf sandwich with garlic mashed potatoes on its arm ($10.95–$11.95), and a California market salad loaded with nuts, vegetables, chicken, cranberries, and goat cheese ($13.50–$13.95). Chocolateers and fudgeistadors will hit pay dirt with Hamburger Hamlet's ultimate hot-fudge cake ($8.95–$9.95), just one of the several rich desserts offered.
