When I was in high school I had a red 1989 Le Baron, and man was I cool. I loved the car to death, and took amazing care of it. I decided that I wanted to make my baby black, and saved up about $400 (this was in 1995) for the job. I brought the car up to this place because it was the closest place that would do it that I could find. The transaction went very smoothly, and my car looked SHARP! I don't know that my car was as cool as I thought it was, but man did I feel cool driving a perfectly polished convertible.
My best friend growing up had a pool from this place. I remember every few weeks a guy from the store would come out to check the water, and would usually stay around and chat with my friend's dad. Then unfortunately my friend moved away, and older neighbors moved in. They weren't very friendly with my family, and as a result pool access was cut off. My family often used the pool (we received an open invitation from my friend's family), and decided that maybe we should purchase one for ourselves. We decided on All Seasons as they had a good reputation from the neighbors, and they seemed very concerned with the maintenance of our pool (for a nominal fee I am sure). My parents often told the story to friends who visited about the awesome deal they got on the pool, and how friendly the salesman who worked with them was. If I ever get a home with a yard for a pool, I will definitley be purchasing it from All Seasons.
Buffalo Wild Wings (or B Dubz as it's popularly referred as) is an amazing place to watch a big game, or just to hang out. Their wings are amazing, and with a variety of sauces there's something everyone will like. Even if you don't particularly like wings, you can order something like a burger, or even vegetarian. B Dubz really caters to everyone's needs and likes. If you enjoy going to a sports bar to watch a big game, this is definitely an exciting place to be. It's always fun to go and watch a Cubs V Sox game, as there's always arguing and a small competition going on between the spectators.
I have used the Enchanted Florist for all occasions since I was in high school. From the homecoming dance to just surprising my girlfriend with flowers, they have always had exactly what I needed. The pricing is what is to be expected by any good florist, but the flowers seem to last forever with just a little water. I have used their service so much that I have actually started to get to know some of their employees and we even address each other by first name. Whether you're trying to surprise a lucky person in your life, or have to get some flowers for a dance, The Enchanted Florst is the place to go!
About 8 months ago my water pump stopped building up pressure, and I needed a plumber QUICK. The pump began to leak heavily. I found Hometown Plumbers in the yellow pages, and they said they could be out within an hour. I decided to wait it out. Many hours (3) and towels later the plumber arrived. He was not a very pleasant man, and kind of did his thing and left. He never once appologized for being late, and gave me an absurd bill. I refused to pay it becuase of his tardiness, and a bit of a dispute broke out. I ended up calling his boss, and explained the situation to him. He appologized greatly, and made me pay only half of the bill. I was satisfied with this, but vowed to never use their service again.
When I was younger my family used to be members of the Riv. 8:00 dips became a semi-regular thing in the winter when all of our homework was done. The pool was always very clean. My parents always loved that they provided floatation devices for those that needed them, and lifeguards were always on duty (I presume many private pools don't offer this). Because of the access to this pool I became quite the swimmer, and now frequently swim laps (but at Lifetime now). I would continue my membership with the Riv, but the facilities available to me at Lifetime are more suited to my needs. If you were looking for a great place to swim in any weather, the Riv's pool is a great place to do it.
I ate lunch at the Corner Bakery Cafe a week ago with my girlfriend, and the food was delicious. We both enjoyed a cup of soup and a half sandwich, and everything was spectacular. The business model seemed very familiar as I thought of the last time I entered a Panera Bread restaurant, but it made sense; Panera seems to do tremendous business.
The waiting queue went through very fast, and I soon ordered my meal. We found a table, and put our number on a stand to wait for our food. Within 3 minutes both of us were served, and we enjoyed our food in a very pleasant atmosphere. I felt that the price was right for the food we purchased, considering the very attractive atmosphere that the decorations created. I look forward to my next visit.
I attended Centennial for two years. I always remembered loving the huge rooms with large windows to let the sun come in (when it wouldn't blind us all of course). My favorite teacher of all time, Mrs. Lucas, resided in this building. She brewed inside of me tremendous ambition that I believe still exists on this very day. The teachers in this building as a whole are excellent, and any kid would be lucky to be taught by these amazing educators. District 135 chooses nothing but the best educators, and that is the truth. The cost of attending is obviously very low, as it is a public school (what a perk!).
Liberty is one of the schools that a bunch of my friends attended. When reminiscing about our childhoods, many a great stories took the setting of this building. The teachers mentioned always have seemed very nice, and the building is very clean (I have been inside for my little brother's sporting events). Considering its affiliation with District 135, I am sure that the school has an excellent reading program, along with other high standard academic levels. Like any school in D135, I would love to send a child here.
I attended Sandbox when I was a youngin' and remember it rather well considering my age. The teachers/attendants were always very nice, and always seemed fair. Luxuries such as snacktime were presented to us three days a week (it was only three days a week I believe), along with outdoor activities such as playing in sandboxes and playing on the other equipment. In the winter we would obviously stay in doors and play games, sing songs, and the like. The service must not have been too expensive as my parents (on a tight budget like myself) sent me to it. If I raise children and am still in the area, I would gladly send them to this facility for their preschool education.
PROS: Great facility, nice employees
