Am I the only one that loves little "multi-task" centers like this?
Orkin does a good job at exterminating.. but NOT with customer service.. I use the Pasadena branch.. I signed the contract for 1 year of service to get rid of German Cockroaches in my apartment.. The way it should work is first a visit, then another 1 month later, and then service every other month. Well, no one ever told us the date they were coming back, so we were sleeping and never heard the doorbell or any knocking (they must not have tried very hard because I'm a light sleeper and the bedroom is by the front door). They left us a note saying they had done outside treatments for "spiders and ants" (which we have very minor problems, but downstairs - not even near our apartment). When I checked the calendar they had come 22 days after the first visit - not 30 - and no one ever told us the SCHEDULE!! If you can get around these issues.. the extermination really works... We had a HUGE roach population, that had been breeding for almost 10 years and we didn't expect ANY results.. To our surprise, the roachs were nearly gone after only THREE DAYS and by a week we didn't see a single one .. They have since started to come back (because they didn't return for treatment inside) but the good thing is that any time in-between treatments you can basically insist they come again for free and they'll do it.
This place made our anniversary weekend absolutely amazing.. Trust me, I was very hesitant that a Best Western could be romantic but I decided to trust the reviews and they were very very right. We had the spa suite which had a HUGE jacuzzi tub and a HUGE romantic balcony with open sky view (no roof over it). It was like a romeo & juliet balcony with plants and columns.. But it's in the back so it was isolated and with gorgeous views and nothing to hear except for birds chirping.. At night it got a bit loud because of the valet parking and crowds next door at the House of Blues but it was ok for us because we weren't sleeping anyway ;) .. When you go to the pool it is BEAUTIFUL .. it's isolated, greatly decorated, and looks like the most beauitful courtyard from Italy!! Would love to have a wedding there. BTW the maid has drinks that people leave behind - and gave us beers and vodka for FREE (but tip her SOMETHING of course).
Golden Corral is great for families because it's a buffett style and offers alot of selection for picky-eating kids. Prices are flat rate and cheap (cheaper for kids) but most importantly the food is good.
Copperfield Racquet & Health Club is a good tennis club with a good location. In the nice neighborhood of Copperfield It overlooks the (man-made) bayou so just imagine it's on a river and pretend you can't see the middle school behind the trees on the other side..
This is a good place to take your family and have the traditional experience of cutting down a real tree and taking it home. Service is friendly and even though it's a bit pricey, you can choose between different types of pines and many different sizes
I agree with the previous reveiwer, the service here is horrible. When I was looking to switch from pre-paid to a service agreement I was kept waiting for close to an hour and wasn't given good service so I walked out and they lost my business. It really annoys me when a company won't give you any service so they don't deserve the business!
I joined this league when I was a kid, and it had good things and bad things.. FFPS stands for "Fun Fair Positive Soccer" and it's great for very young kids but as you get older you want the competition (they don't really believe so much in 'keeping score'). FFPS gets a bit cheesy as you get older but for small kids (under 10) it's great since every player gets a trophy and every team is a winner.. If you want serious sports and competition, join a different league.
I LOVE LOVE LOVE Traders Village. It's a great place for families or anyone to come to on the weekends. Huge outdoor place with more permanent stores (look kind of like storage lockers) and places where anyone can set up a table and sell anything they desire. We bought a dog here once and they have good breeders you can buy pets from. There's good food, a few rides, and a stage where there's usually concerts and events.
I think this location is gone since it's not listed, but if you ever find a location anywhere that you are traveling definately stop there - http://www.grandys.com/Welcome/Guests/Stores/stores.html. They have excellent home-style cooking and my family remembers them for the BEST buttery dinner rolls ever. We used to order 2 or 3 dozen just of the roll.s
