I went to a couple of weddings at this location. What a beautiful place. From the street you cannot tell how nice this is. It is hidden behind historical buildings and makes for a great setting for small or large weddings. You can also have your reception here - adjacent to the ceremony area.
PROS: lovely historical spot for weddings
I am a big guy and it is sometimes hard to find clothes that fit and feel comfortable. I discovered the Big & Tall Singers Shop some years ago when my wife bought me a shirt there. It fit me great and didn't pinch my neck. This store has super large sizes for very tall or very large men. I was surprised when I started looking around at the wide variety of XXX sizes of clothing that fits and looks good too! They have shirts, sports coats, dress slacks, shorts, you name it in a lot of different colors and styles.
Prices are slightly higher, but I guess they have to use more fabric to make them.
Large parking lot - store is located in the Loreto Plaza Shopping center near Gelson's Market.
PROS: Large variety of clothing for big guys
CONS: prices slightly higher, but worth it.
Our family (the men and boys) went to King Tux when we were to be part of a wedding party. There were 4 of us who had to be fitted for tuxedo's and this included everything down to the shoes and socks. King Tux was very good at taking measurements and when we got our tux's everything fit perfectly. They made it all look so easy.
We were very happy with their large variety of tux selections. The people that work there are very helpful at making suggestions, especially if you don't know what you're doing (like us).
Located near Long's Drugs on Calle Laureles (which is near De la Vina St.
PROS: King Tux makes it easy to get fitted perfectly
Haik's German Autohaus is a well-established business. Haik's know what they are doing on any German car, especially Mercedes for less than the dealership would cost for repairs. They also repair other types of autos with expertise. They are very thorough and do the job right; you can trust them completely to repair your car and not overcharge you. They charge only for what they do and that is to repair your car well.
Located on Cota Street near Garden St.. Turn right into the parking lot which is a little tight.
PROS: Excellent repair work you can trust.
Shang Hai Restaurant is tucked into a little shopping center with a small parking lot. Don't let that fool you though. Once you enter, you are in for a taste delight. We've gone here many times and often order the vegetarian dishes, which are delicious. We could have sworn that there was meat in the recipe, but the chef here is creative and can do wonderfully mysterious things with tofu! The egg and meat entrees are also very tasty here.
If you like Chinese food, try Shang Hai!
Good customer service too. Prices are reasonable.
PROS: wide array of tempting dishes.
CONS: a little hard to find the first time.
We like to go here for their fresh sandwiches. I like to get a whole sandwich, usually turkey or roast beef and my wife gets a half. They put a lot of meat into their sandwiches along with all the good fixings too. The bread is really fresh and we usually get a french roll for our sandwiches. There is so much meat in their sandwiches, some of it falls out.
The shop also has lots of fresh meats, including steaks and chops and all for decent prices.
Their parking lot is a little small, but you can usually find a spot to park. Very close to the donut shop.
If you order a sandwich, make sure to order and pick it up by 4:00 pm, because they won't make it after that time of day.
PROS: Huge Sandwiches
CONS: nothing I can see.
