Me and my boyfriend thought it would be fun to go out with two other couples to Bush Garden. We heard positive reviews about this place and we were excited to reserve a private room for the 6 of us. Unfortunately the novelty of the room wore off after waiting forever to order, 2 hours later and continuous asking about our meals, our food arrived cold and served to wrong people by unpleasant servers. We are professionals and not difficult people. We were surprised that our service was horrible! The manager was not accomidating and very argumentative. I'm not sure if it was holiday stress or what. No apologies or comping of our bill. I will not go back even if it was just the "holiday".
PROS: private rooms
CONS: unfriendly people
Fry's is unbelievable. It is a huge warehouse full of electronics. My fiance and I enjoy walking up and down each and every aisle looking at all the parts, gagets, and components. They have a large variety of products such as computers (parts, software, printers...), home theater, televisions, appliances, CD/DVDs, books, magazines, car stereo, etc. They have many cashiers and I have never had to wait in line!
I have been to Paint the Town on many occasions. I love the selection of ceramics to choose from. They fit all budgets! Their staff is helpful and friendly. They often give suggestions if asked. They even have daily specials. Check out their website prior to choosing a day to go. When I am done painting, I get to pick it up my finished and glazed work in 7 days. I have many keepsakes around my home. Plan to spend at least an hour or two here!
My fiance' and I visited Warren Jewelers on two occasions. First, I needed to get an antique ring fit with a new band. The owner was very friendly and he gave me information about my ring that I didn't even know!!! I was very pleased with my band replacement! The second visit was the day after Christmas when we ran in to see if we could get my new engagement ring resized!!! I was thinking I would need to leave it but surprisingly not! They only needed 2 hours:) I was very happy. He also examined the ring and complimented my FI on the quality he purchased:) I would recommend going there! We may go back to look at their bands soon:)
I enjoy going to Costco Home. They have an excellent selection in all departments: couches, chairs, dining, carpet, drapes, lighting, beds, mattresses, art work, rugs, tvs, etc. I have purchased a love seat and a chair from them. I had not problems with ordering these items and getting exactly what I wanted. The shipping time was just like I was promised. I am very satisfied and will continue to look at their store first when buying a new piece of furniture.
I would like to give compliments to the Bellevue Art Museum for allowing Espresso Americano to be located inside of the museum. I was there this past Sat. evening and enjoyed sipping on a Cremosa while listening to their live musical performance. Perfect place to relax and listen to art:) I picked up a schedule and will continue to pop in weekend evenings!
Soundview Shopper has been wonderful for me and my family for the past 25 years. Our home is approximately 10 miles from the nearest grocery store. There have been many occasions that we have run out of something and needed to run to Soundview so we could continue cooking!!! The employees are very friendly and we often stop and make small talk.
The Car Depot is an OUTSTANDING car business. The salesmen are knowledgeable and non-pushy. They have a variety of used cars on their lot that are affordable and not over priced like many larger lots do. Because of the wonderful service that I receive, I have purchased 3 cars from them during the past 7 years. I have also sent in other family and friends to do business with them. This should be the first place you look for your next used car! A++++++++
Confetti Junction is a fantastic place for all your party needs. I went in looking for a pinata for a classroom party. I was amazed at all the theme items that they carry. I wanted to host my own party after wandering up and down each aisle. The staff are friendly and full of ideas! Besides theme decor, they carry a wide varitey of paper products and plasticware. A must go if you are throwing a birthday party, bridal shower, retirement, etc!
I went to Desert Sun because I received a coupon for one month unlimited tanning for $9.99. Great deal for first timers only. When I walked in, their were 3 staff members behind the counter. I was greated with a smile and then was convinced to buy tanning lotion because I would get 30% off a $50 bottle. Plus, I had to buy protective lenses. Needless to say, I paid a lot more than anticipated. I was very pleased at how clean their salon is. I used a conventional bed but they offer 3-4 other kinds for more $$$. Keep a look out for a coupon on the back of a receipt!
