Before diving into any of their spa treatments, the staff of Infinity Day Spa wants you to stop, breathe, and drink a cup of tea. By arriving at least 15 minutes prior to any appointment, guests can decompress in the tranquility room, where flickering candles and fluffy pillows play host to tea leaves that blend into steamy custom brews. Patrons can also use this time to swap their street clothes for a robe and sandals and stow their belongings in the men’s and women’s locker rooms. Once their technician comes to claim them, guests embark on a visit built from the extensive service menu. Many of the spa’s treatments include extra elements, such as manicures with retinol-based vitamin repair or reflexology sessions with paraffin dips. Natural therapies also sprout up throughout the spa—estheticians frost skin with body wraps harvested from wasabi and ginger, and massage therapists melt muscles using oils infused with aromatherapy blends. After any treatment, clients may retreat to the spa’s showers to freshen up and hide evidence of the day from jealous stress balls back at home.

Celebrating their 25th anniversary in the end of October, the hop gurus at Brew and Grow educate burgeoning beer makers on the art of crafting cold ones via hands-on introductory courses. During 2.5-hour classes, duos learn the ins and outs of the brewing process, including basic terminology, equipment, and the differences between ales, lagers, and root beer. Pupils will sip various suds while learning about ideal ingredient combinations, then concoct customized barley pops. Though they can't immediately take class creations home, participants will be able to return to the brewery in approximately one month or after malted barley has passed its fermentation exam to tap and taste their personalized potables. At the end of the session, students will be able take home a choice of two comprehensive home brewing guides, either How To Brew by John Palmer or Radical Brewing by Chicago author Randy Mosher.

Dolphin Swim Club’s faculty of professional First Aid– and CPR-certified lifeguards help children aged 2 and older learn how to swim in a safe and encouraging environment. They lead lessons within a pool comfortably heated to 89 degrees, keeping class sizes small to ensure individual attention. After trainers assess each child’s ability, they’ll place them in one of nine levels, which they can progress through in accordance with their budding skills. Very young splashers might learn bubble blowing and breath control in Level A, while older and more experienced children in Level 7 might refine stroke mechanics, build up endurance, or learn how to properly evade pool-dwelling Venetian merchants.

Dolphin Swim Club stresses child safety above all other concerns. Its founder, Tyler Brewer, was a founding board member of the Swim For Life Foundation, which stresses the Safer 3—Safer Kids, Safer Water, and Safer Response—to prevent children from drowning.
