Handyman

IF I HAD A HAMMER | Make Ready Group owner Steven McFarland does have a hammer — and knows how to use it. (Arnold Wayne Jones/ Dallas Voice)

Not every gay guy has that HGTV touch to turn a bathroom into a Zen spa. Nor does every lesbian put on a toolbelt for a weekend of fun. That’s where The Make Ready Group steps in. The team can take care of repairing leaky pipes or faulty switches like any home service, but they’ll scrape off that popcorn ceiling, add that new countertop and even mow the lawn — whatever you don’t want to do, that’s what they specialize in. The Make Ready Group even gets your house or apartment ready when it’s time to move on out. The only thing we’re not sure about them just yet is if they can leap tall buildings in a single bound.

— Rich Lopez

Tanning-Salon

THE BRONZING AGE | Tan Bar’s Terry Ehrle and Leslie Lopez can turn you from pale to pretty — with no UV rays.

Fun in the sun used to be an innocent pastime. But we all know better now. Harmful UV rays can not only destroy the skin, but (even worse!) make us look old beyond our years. That’s why readers chose The Tan Bar as their favorite place for a no-bake glow. Conveniently located on Cedar Springs for a pre-club bronzing, Tan Bar specializes in the fine skill of airbrush tanning. No icky booths or beds with gazillion-watt light bulbs here. Instead, they utilize natural and organic products to produce a tan that’s as healthy as it is healthy-looking. They can give you an all-over treatment if tan lines drive you mad, or focus on exactly the areas you need it most. Perhaps one of the best services they offer is one that will help you turn heads at the beach, the pool or even just the gym locker room. Through expert shading and contouring they can give you the look of six-pack abs without a single crunch. That’s something you’d never get from an hour in the sun.
