I have always loved Funworks for their classic miniature golf course and their pinball games (they have both Creature from the Black Lagoon *and* The Addams Family). But their "happiness coordinators" did everything to make our daughter's birthday party the best ever. They even provided the cake and pizza. The kids rode the go-karts and bumper boats, made their own teddy bears and used the batting cages. And I loved the air hockey tables!
Exotic Birds and Pets is one of my niece's favorite places to go when she visits us. She likes looking at the reptiles and amphibians... snakes, iguanas, frogs. She thinks the multicolored parrots are really cool, particularly the ones who talk. One of these days we may have to break down and buy her one! I almost forgot, the staff is very nice to children.
Boulevard Billiards is justly proud of its 27 table showroom. We have been pricing pool tables for our rec room and we had no idea how many different styles are available. The staff here are professionals who were able to describe the features of each model and help us determine what would be in our price range. Very helpful.
World of Wheels has a reputation for carrying a big line of scooters and mountain bikes -- and they do. But we were looking for something special. Our nephew requested a unicycle, and World of Wheels had them! We thought the $80 price a bit high, but we couldn't find this item anywhere else. Our nephew had a happy birthday!
We were intrigued that a shop would combine hair care, jewelry and gourmet chocolate. My wife was delighted. She recently had her hair permed here and was pleased with the job. Meanwhile, she enjoyed looking at the handmade bracelets and pendants and she ended up buying a small box of Godiva. I'm glad she splurged!
We haven't lived her long, and my wife was looking for a salon that would suit her pickiness. She was very pleased with the cut and blow dry she received at Gary's Kut and Kurl. They do what you ask without trying all kinds of fancy stuff. She liked that they followed instructions accurately and I liked that I was able to get change from a 20.
My wife and I had an event to attend recently and she decided to get a pedicure that morning. We drove down Standiford looking for a place that was open, and En Vogue was able to take her in without a wait. She said the staff was very pleasant and had the nail polish shade she likes. She was surprised at how cheap it was. She has already made plans to return, and she is picky!
I recently bought my wife a half-day spa package at Rene's for her birthday. She had a facial and pedicure and they even fed her a gourmet lunch. She had choices like beef, salmon and a Greek sandwich. She said they treated her like royalty and she felt so wonderful when she was done. She made me promise to get her another gift certificate for her birthday next year and you know I will do so!
When our house was built, it seems the wrong type of tile was used in our master bathroom stall shower. No matter how much I scrub, no matter what cleaning solutions I use, it will not come clean. I had been advise to rip it out and start anew. Thanks to Miracle Method, I avoided that type of expense. Their folks came out, performed an accurate estimate, and then did their voodoo with their magic potions. I have clean tile for the first time in years!
Custom Marble & Onyx has a reputation for great cabinets, but we already have Corians in our kitchen. What we wanted was an onyx countertop, which we have seen in model homes and is so beautiful. Custom Marble came out and measured our space, cut the countertop with precision and installed it in just a matter of days. It fit perfectly and is now a beautiful addition to our home. I recommend these folks unreservedly.
