Live Grit

  • Price band: 3/4

This Near West Side shop may cater to triathaloners—swimmer, bikers, runners—but there’s something for every level of athlete. It sells bikes for commuters and racers, plus offers tune-ups and adjustments galore. Swimmers can sort through wetsuits, goggles, and swim caps, while runners can try on clothing and shoes. As the shop’s community grows, keep an eye out for group training events, educational workshops and social mixers.

IVme Hydration Clinic

  • Price band: 3/4

Set aside your fear of needles at this spa-meets-ER. IVs are the simplest form of hydration, so people come to this white couch–clad clinic if they're suffering from a cold or the flu, jet-lag and, of course, a hangover. After a nurse takes your blood pressure, you'll be hooked up to an IV administering a saline solution that contains electrolytes and minerals, supplemented with vitamin B and Zofran, a common antinausea med. Within 20 minutes you'll start feeling back to normal again. This new location also offers non-intravenous beauty, aesthetics and vitamin services, which range in price from $14 to $155 and include Botox, Juvederm, Latisse, vitamin B12 ahots and oxygen therapy.
