I've been going to this dentist for maybe 5 years now and its been a somewhat pleasurable experience. His anesthetic procedure is one of the best I have witnessed because if doesn't even feel like there is a needle shoved down your gum line. My insurance covers most of the prices so I don't if the prices are high or anything. The thing i dont like is that the place is only opened from wednesday through saturday in this location only. But on a happier note, it's amazing that this guy does almost everything from fillings to cleanings to braces. On my last visit, we did an xray on some computer that gave instant results. Very high tech.
On entry, this store can seem like a sports collector's paradise. But then, after a few minutes, you realize these items have all been signed by the athlete for a good chunk of money and you are paying even more for it because of the middle man, the store. You can find some neat stuff such as a ball Shaq used during a playoff game and won and stuff like that. I like to get my signed memoriabilia personally. So this store isn't for me.
Being in Fashion comes with a price. Everything in the store can be considered hip for the time period because somehow, they always know what is cool. You can find vintage-wannabe articles of clothing and torn jeans for untorn prices. I do like the diesel selection but I'm not a person willing to spend 150 for just one pair. I don't like the plethora of shirts with ambiguous locations just as "Joes Gas" or something stupid like that. I don't get it.
During my RC car obsession days, this was the only place I went to buy new parts to modify my project. They had everything but they sometimes the prices can be a little steep. You can buy other stuff such as basal wood bars to construct other art projects. It might not have a big as selection at Michaels but you can find equipment for your some kind of hobby you might have.
I didn't know that a toy store like this still existed. The toys are not too extreme such as action figures that have the new bleeding function or anything like that. There are many children friendly toys such as vintage lego sets and wooden blocks and such. It reminds of the toy stores that are depicted in 50's movies. I didn't see if the prices were high or anything but the stuff was so neat!
After being accustomed to the heavy prices of Sombrero's and Chile Pepper's, Super Sergio was a total surprise to me. A California burrito was only 3 bucks compared to 4.30 at the other restaurants. They also gave me a lot of hot sauce with my order as well which was nice. Unlike other drive thrus, this place has a drive thru on both sides. But it gets sort of tricky to use it from the left side because you have to reach through the passenger side to pay and recieve your meal. What angered me about the place was the time it took them make my small order. I must have waited for 15 minutes or 10 just for a burrito and carne asada fries. Oh Well, their food taste good.
For my senior prom, I decided to rent a tux from this establishment because of a gift card that read "Get 20-40 dollars off your rental when you scratch at the store" I go to the store and notice that it was pretty empty. And it was a week before prom. Shouldn't it be more crowded at this time? The selection isn't that big but everything looks pretty nice. The tailor man measured me which went by pretty quick and it ended up costing around 100 bucks for a pretty sweet looking tux. The guy was really friendly, attemping to cater to my taste, even though I knew almost nothing about tuxedos. I would suggest it, even with the price.
But get the gift card discount thing.
This is probably one of the more authentic Vietnamese restaurants in San Diego. It is pretty difficult to get something you love on your first visit but by the third of fourth, you will most likely have a favorite that will bring you back to Pho Hoa Hiep for years to come. The portion size on the "train size bowl" is ridiculous. For around 5 bucks, you can fill yourself up and your meal is prepared with a fastfood pace. Try it out.
When a new store opens, you hope it has some new twist to it such as extremely low prices or unique items which Kohl's fails miserably at doing. The items are very similar to those at Mervyns which means low quality, ugly, and you can't never find anything on sale. It's just run-of-the-mill.
In 20 years, I hope that the majority of retail stores sells item like that of found in Sharper Image. Everything is very imaginative such as silent air purifiers (I don't know if they work) or automatic vacuum cleaners. It hard to know if the quality of the product is good since you can't compare it with anything else. The store also has a modern feel to it which is also very relaxing.
