Although it's hard to tell by looking at Fabulous Esthetics owner Amanda Walthall's healthy complexion, she's had ample opportunities to put various skincare products to the test while treating her own epidermal concerns. This first-hand familiarity, paired with seven years spent working for medical spas throughout the Midwest, makes her a trustworthy skincare specialist—well versed in chemical peels, facials, and microdermabrasion practices. Fabulous Esthetics specializes in treating acne-prone or aging skin with the most effective products and services available, favoring ingredients such as alpha hydroxy acid and vitamin C squeezed from oranges by supermodels. Microdermabrasion treatments whisk away weathered skin cells, waxing services uproot hairs to leave skin smooth, and paraben-free airbrush tanning gilds bodies for up to 14 days.

The Crook and Bale: Both players idly hit balls with sticks and talk about football until one of them brings up what’s really on their minds: the night last August that can’t be washed away. Island Shuffle: This is Cliff’s moment to shine because Cliff loves this game. Too bad nobody likes Cliff enough to play. Sorry, Cliff. Oddball Out: This deadly game requires players to bring their own archery set and is rarely worth the bloodshed. Can be played in teams.
The scents of lavender and citrus fill of the rooms of Message Felax. Tucked away in private corners, licensed therapists gently scrub, soak, and knead their clients' feet during a reflexology performed with aromatherapy oils. It may come as no surprise that the spa's main mission is to pamper feet—the name itself is a portmanteau of "feet" and "relax"—although the massage therapists incorporate holistic techniques into traditional massages as well. The spa's menu of Swedish, sports, and deep-tissue massages also includes a house back and neck massage that blends Eastern and Western techniques. The spa also offers lung- and blood-cleansing sessions at an oxygen bar without charging the usual two-inhalation minimum.
