Miriam's Kitchen’s nourishing meals are the organization’s cornerstone service, welcoming 250–350 men and women each weekday with nutritious breakfasts and dinners. Menus feature whole grains, fresh meats, and local and organic fruits and vegetables. An average morning may open with scrambled eggs with salmon, roasted home fries, warm biscuits, and fresh-fruit salad. Evening guests dine on well-balanced fare such as pasta in marinara sauce, sautéed broccoli, garden salad, and whole-wheat rolls. Local farmers' markets and grocery stores donate much of the food, helping to keep costs to an average of $1 or less per meal. In 2010, the kitchen provided more than 75,000 meals.
The Bike Shop's grease-slicked, tight-shorted technicians will tinker, tighten, and lube your bike up, down, inside, and around. Your tune-up includes service and adjustment for front and rear brakes, drive trains, wheel bearings, and truing (excludes spoke replacement or rim-wall correction), filling and topping-off of air and fluids, and a complete safety check followed by road testing if the weather is cooperating. It does not include parts. Additional charges may apply for hydraulic brakes.
Board-certified facial plastic surgeon Dr. Suzanne Kim Doud Galli and her skillful staff youthify beauty-seekers with custom chemical peels. During each 30-minute treatment, technicians sheathe epidermises in a naturally derived glycolic-acid solution designed to slough off superficial layers of dead skin, fading fine lines and to-do lists scrawled on cheeks in ballpoint pen. Clients can also opt to magnify results with multiple peels. Afterward, some faces may experience mild peeling as the skin regenerates, eventually revealing a refreshed complexion as a chorus of pores sings a breathy “ahhhh.”

The Fab Faux, partly featuring members of the house bands of The Late Show with David Letterman and The Tonight Show with Conan O'Brien, recreate Fab Four classics in pitch-perfect and note-for-note style, coming strikingly close to the sound of the original recordings. In the case of Beatles songs recorded after August 29, 1966, The Fab Faux does what the Beatles never did—play them live. Hear Abbey Road cuts as you ponder the masculine features of Polythene Pam or just how much love you have to make to break even in the end. Or drift away to White Album cuts while thinking about how Desmond and Molly's barrow in the marketplace is doing in spite of the gently weeping guitars being sold just three doors down.
