I got my wedding flowers at Main Floral. I shopped around at several florist in the area, and they were the only ones who listened to what I wanted. The other florists all tried to talk me into something else. When I told them at Main Floral what I wanted, they brought out those flowers and went over them with me. The flowers were beautiful and exactly what I had wanted/ordered. No problems with them whatsoever.
We have been taking our dog to Blaine Area Pet Hospital ever since he was 8 weeks old. He has seen all of the vets at the clinic, but we like Dr. Baumgartner the best. She always takes as much time as is needed to do the exam, ask questions of us, and answer our questions. Options for care are always explained and your never pressured as to your choice. The vet techs are very nice and our dog is always greeted by name when he arrives for his appointments. Clean, Clean vet.
I purchased my bridesmaids dresses here. They had the most extensive selection of bridesmaid dresses to select from. I found many different styles and colors that I just wasn't finding at other shops. I felt I kept seeing the same dresses over and over at other stores, and finally was finding a wider variety at the Wedding Shoppe. They had fabric swatches available that I could take with me to help match for flowers, etc. Friendly staff, good service, cute shop on Grand Ave. Downside- very busy. Schedule an appt well in advance.
Blainbrook is a bowling alley located in Blaine. It's popularity has decreased since a new Brunzwick opened about 2 miles down the road. The result is that you can usually get lane for bowling at Blainbrook without a wait or having to reserve. It is older and doesnt offer all the things that Brunzwick does like lazer tag, extensive aracade etc so the crowd that frequents tends to be older. But its a good place to go if you dont want to wait, or be around a bunch of tweens/teens.
Ruby Begonia's offers a great selection of Martini's. They have several pages in their menu of just Martini's. The night that we were there they had several live musicians performing. Great place to meet friends and catch up. Relaxed, casual atmosphere. Small upstairs, so if you have several people in your group, would recommend getting there a little earlier to be sure to have seating for your whole party.
Garys offers great veggie pizza. They load on the veggies and you really feel like you are getting your moneys worth. Only down side is that they are open weird hours.
My husband and I love to eat at Mansetti's. We both love their pizza. I especially like the veggie pizza that they offer. It has tons of veggies and a great sauce. We also have had their shrimp tortellini and it is VERY good! Comparable prices to other pizza places. Can dine in, get delivery or pick up for their full menu. Kids eat free certain days of the week.
Good Selection of current and old releases. Can rent DVD or VHS. Can find some older movies that are not out on the shelves at bigger chain video stores. 24 hr. drop box.
We ordered our wedding cake from JKB. They were very helpful with figuring out how much to order. They had multiple filling to select from. The cake was exactly how I had wanted it!
Comedysportz is a great interactive improv comedy show in Uptown. They have two teams competing against one another, and get suggestions from the audience for topics. Unlike at a comedy club, audience members are not heckled or made fun of! You can enjoy the show without worrying! Also, since it is improv and the skits/suggestion are always from that nights audience- you dont have to worry about seeing the same show twice! Reasonable ticket price and various showtimes for each night.
