Readers’ Choice 2010 Best Bar for Conversation, To Study for the Bar, Neighborhood Tavern ...

Nestled comfortably at 1510 North Saddle Creek Rd., The Homy Inn is just east of that disfigured-octopus-of-an-intersection midtown drivers have come to love. And much like that horrid roundabout, The Homy is here to stay. And that’s a good thing.

Readers’ Choice 2010 Best Dry Cleaner

Some things about quality dry cleaning never change, like meticulous craftsmanship and care. Then there are innovations, which the best practitioners adopt to meet changing customer expectations. When Fashion Cleaners started in the 1940s eco-friendly cleaning was unknown. The same held true when Kermit Engh acquired the company in the 1980s.
