Budget Dry Cleaners can also scour table clothes ($15), blankets ($20), bedspreads ($20), comforters ($20), and suede and leather coverings ($35), leaving each in tip-top shape after house-wide cleaning days necessitated by an open-top blender's joyride on a Roomba.

Blush Boutique, which was named Best Women’s Boutique on Fox 8’s 2010 Hot List, highlights the trendy and eclectic styles of independent and emerging designers with collections of women’s fashion and jewelry. The fashion emporium, bedecked with lemon-lime-magenta pompons, greets style mavens with groves of T-shirts, wallets, and other accessories ($10–$25), dresses and jackets ($25+), and thickets of bags ($25+) and handmade jewelry ($10+). A braided-strap top flatters torsos with floral patterns ($35), and a double-buckled belt ($24), available in beige and black, keeps belly buttons from shouting obscenities at an intrusive forefinger. Featured designers, such as Knitted Dove, Suzabelle, Veronica M, Espe, and Nicole Rae Styler, are on regular rotation, with owners Gina and Laurie—who are both designers themselves—selecting the best from each season to share with their clientele.

Alesci’s embraces family traditions. If it’s not already apparent by the third generation of brothers who co-manage the deli and grocer, it shimmers to the surface in the stories of old regulars and those who remember Grandpa Frank Alesci. Starting with Frank, and now for more than 50 years, the Alesci family has curated a collection of imported products, providing immigrants with the sought-after goods from across the pond. Beyond that, it’s a place for fresh, crusty bread, pizza, a myriad of cheeses, and deli meats sliced by hand. Inside the 7,000-square-foot location, shelves are lined with everything from polenta to biscotti, olives to olive oil, and peppers who share space with their natural enemy: the tomato.

With more than 60 years of combined rug-cutting experience, La Danse Cleveland's co-owners, Esther Rehm-Cohen and Tim Brown, have helped untold numbers of students twirl, hop, and belly slide across the dance floor. Certified as a ballroom instructor in 1981, Esther has won national awards for her teaching skills and has had the distinct honor of training couples who have gone on to rank in competitions. She garnered the position of head coach of the Case Western Reserve University ballroom team before fate's two-step led her to a partnership with Tim to run La Danse Cleveland's ample 6,000-square-foot studio. Boasting a background that includes competition in professional arenas as well as work as a dancing judge and a choreographer, co-owner Tim delights in crafting group classes and private lessons that excite and challenge students.

Included on the studio's roster of lessons are styles from Viennese waltz to nightclub two-step, along with sessions tailored specifically to children and to adult fitness goals. In classes and dance parties open to the public, students and social dancers alike rendezvous with Esther, Tim, and their impressive stable of instructors, whose resumés include stints with such world-class companies as the Boston Ballet and Gene Kelly's gutter-cleaning company.
