In 1911, when he opened Standard Optical, Henry Schubach could not have guessed that his successors would be providing LASIK treatments and contact lenses in 18 clinics. Each office fills with chatter as doctors check prescriptions and work to identify common optical issues, such as glaucoma or weeping when an onion dies. Light skips off ranks of designer frames from Coach, Maui Jim, Guess, Lacoste, and Dior, and transitional lenses darken as newly keen-eyed patrons mosey from the shop. The staff at Standard Optical has also performed more than 15,000 LASIK procedures, and offers a free consultation for those seeking to ditch frames.
Drive Thru Philly curbs hearty appetites with mammoth philly steak or chicken sandwiches constructed on soft hoagie buns. Patrons can moonwalk up to the counter or motor through the convenient drive-thru to adorn a beefy behemoth with a choice of accouterments. Cheese-slice aficionados opt for provolone, while old-school, Philadelphia-trained palates prefer their cheese sauce, like their child prodigies, in "whiz" form.

Certified adorable by the Cute Salons Association, Tuscany tucks itself into a homelike spot just west of downtown, off Colorado Ave. Step through the doorway into a massage room, where the light, flowing strokes of Swedish massage stokes a burned-out body with renewed life and improved circulation. From there, you'll face dive into a European facial that deeply cleanses your pores and puts a metaphorical leaf blower on dead, clingy skin cells, unveiling new shoots of radiance below.
