If you hate the idea of bathing a dirty dog after a muddy or icy walk through Cambridge, let these professionals take care of the job! Not only have they been around for years and have earned the trust of the community, they are nice and will treat your dog with care and respect. They'll probably be way more gentle than you could be on your own. Plus, give Fido a cut and he'll (you'll) be receiving compliments for weeks.
Walk into Curious George and you walk into a magical world that delights children and captivates the young at heart. The friendly staff is quick to recommend the latest new kids book or toy and kids are encouraged to play with the display toys. The bright interior is a welcome break during a snowy winter day in Cambridge and a fun trip out for the whole family.
I found about 5 little items here for my mom's birthday, a lady hard to buy for because it seems like she has everything she needs. Here, you'll find magnetic thumb tacks, teenie tiny measuring cups, unique bar tools, big paper clips and round dice. They're items you don't know are out there, but that can add simplicity and fun to your life. The unique stock is fun to explore and the prices are great. Find a little gift to brighten someone's day- it's likely they'll be as surprised by the item as you were!
Any bouquet or single flower/plant you purchase here will be sure to impress the recipient or light up your own home. The arrangements are unlike any you'll find in other bigger florists shops. They are delicate with a unique mix of exoctic blends. The staff will help you put together the perfect bouquet for a special occasion. Even better, the quality means you'll be enjoying the flowers long after those from the supermarket have been put out to the trash.
Whether or not you visit this store to buy world class tobacco, you'll enjoy yourself. As a non-smoker, I was still intrigured by the figurines, gaming piecies and other curiousities in the store's cases. It's a rare and unique store definately worth a browse when in Harvard Square. And if you don't know tobacco, the friendly staff will give you a 101 and let you smell the difference between brands and types. Go upstairs and have yourself a smoke!
As a young female, I hate going to car wash places where the employees treat you like a piece of meat and this is no exception. However, in the winter months I bite my lip instead of freeze outside and try to wash my car at my apartment, which is nearly impossible due to the set up in my complex. $9 gets you a full exterior wash, but if you want any interior cleaning done, be prepared to wait in the tiny waiting room with 1 shabby old seat. This is the closest car wash to me, so I go more due to location than any sort of positive experience. The exterior wash will do an ok job, but there will still be some dirt left that even the towel driers don't try too hard to remove.
If you are in the market for a quality record, this might be a good place to start your search. This store has more records than I've seen in one place in quite a awhile. If you have a bag larger than a purse, you do have to check it in when you enter, which made me nervous to leave it with a stranger behind the counter, but there was no issues when it was returned. There is a small collection of cds, but I wouldn't go here for a newly released cd, you probably wouldn't find it. There's also a limited collection of cheap vhs tapes in the back.
This overcrowded, dreay gym was a certain disappointment. Before I moved to Boston my boyfriend visited the gym to check it out for me, but of course I didn't sign up sight unseen. When I moved and went in myself, the manager kept telling me how I'd really missed out not signing up through my boyfriend because I missed a really good deal. Well, thanks, that makes me feel really good. The classes were crowded, the locker rooms unimpressive and cold and the scene is like you are in a gray garage underground. The people at the front desk seemed confused and were unhelpful. Even though they offer free valet parking, you still have to wait 10-15 minutes some days for the attendent to take your care.
Salon Femia is run by 3 sisters right next to JP Licks in Davis Square. They accept walk ins and appointments. For a long hair cut, the price is $30 - much better than the $60-$80 other local salons charge and many steps above the quality you'd get at a super cuts. The stylists aren't too chatty with you, but they do talk amongst themselves and you almost wonder how your hair ends up looking so great at the end. I was impressed and it didn't burn a hole in my pocketbook, like so many other trendy local salons.
Figs is tucked away on charming Charles St. in Beacon Hill. The restaurant is small and can have lines or Friday and Saturday, but the unique format is worth the wait! Figs specializes in gourmet pizzas with unique toppings (think specialty cheeses, fruits, cured meats, etc.) with wine paring suggestions. The interior is not exactly new, but this is a great place for a quiet date or a girls night out. The pizzas are $13-$20 and can be shared.
