I never expected to find this salon here in Davis. The whole atmosphere is warm and welcoming, designed to have a very soothing effect. The only problem is that the massage rooms are kinda cold. And depending on who you get to help you, you can have the best massage or the worst. But I completely love the atmosphere. It's a small house renovated into a ecletric spa.
Roxies is a full service salon that des everything from shampoo and styling to nails and waxing. The styling starts at $30, but to add a cut with it comes to $40. The prices are steep, but the service is quite good. They're really hard to find though, I stumbled into it quite by accident. But as always I must remind anyone who goes here to have a definitive idea of what you want to do before stepping into the place--DO NOT under any circumstances leave it up to the stylists. There's no such thing as a refund--even if they only accept cash.
The extension center is great for involving alumni and friends back to the university. The center covers a range of different offices that relates back to the main university. It is, in essence, the skeleton of UC Davis. The people here are so nice and wonderful though, always trying to help as much as possible. Too bad this doens't apply to the rest of the university.
The I-House is a wonderful place to get more detailed information about the international awareness. If you could get an internship/voluneer position here it would be so great to be able to write it on your resume. They provide a link to its many sister cities in other countries and even cultural exchanges and learning--that includes language and traditions.
The Alumni and Visitor center has great for information regarding the events at UC Davis, but they are great for giving tours around the campus as well. Also, they have large rooms for conferences and catering if needed. The area is really nice because it's located right next to the arboredum and the Mondavi Center.
Whenever I have to deal with the City of Davis, I always come out of the ordeal with a headache. When dealing with any city work, I understand that there is trouble to be had, but I never thought that it would be so bad as this. The city tries hard to make a difference on its residents, but good lord...
I love going to this theater! On Tuesday, select movies are only $4. This is great b/c its also $1 day at Baskin Robbins located just a block over. My friends and I get out of work late, so we always go get ice cream and then head over to Signature Stadium. As a senior, I really wish I knew about this great place as a freshman.
The Pence Gallery is an amazing non-profit art gallery that showcases the history through art. They have a variety of different showings that makes the viewer look at the world differently. But they not only showcase different art types, they also offer drop in art classes for kids at an amazing deal. Because they are also close to the Farmer's Market, its nice to bring the kids to after a Saturday morning of shopping.
What a great find! I was looking around for a new way to lose weight and a friend of mines reconmended dancing. It was a great surpise to see this studio because it accepts all types of different styles and allows you to meld it into your own type. They offer only select classes via the Experimental College at a fairly affordable price. The only difficult part was that it was kinda in the boonies.
This place is so quiet and comfy that it's a perfect place for a nap--if they don't kick you out. There is a huge selection of different types of carpet, from the lush and decadent to the stoicly neutral. The only thing that this place needs is some help with the customer service because it was dead when I walked in. No one was available when I had questions so I left and found it at a different market. I just wish I did find out the prices. Kinda sad.
