Movie Tavern is not like the Stadium Seating Multiplexes...so don't go there if that is what you are looking for. These are smaller "old school" screens.
What makes Movie Tavern worth visiting is the atmosphere. Where else can you see a new release Movie and drink a Margarita? Well here you can! You can also have pizza, buffalo wings, salads....! It makes for a really good time, in fact if you can rent out an entire viewing room for a One of a Kind Birthday Party!
I bought my Mom a Package for Mothers Day to Daireds. I did not like their pre-package deals, so I put together my own. It ended up costing $670 for a full day at the spa.
Now my Mom has been to many spas around the world and she was not impressed with what you got for the price they were charging. She said the facilities were lovely and the stone massage was great...but that was about it. In fact during her facial she just about had a fit when the lady started pulling her skin "downwards" as hard as she could. You should never pull your skin down on your face unless you want it to sag!!
We have used their Salon more than once and the Ladies are really good at what they do. You can even get a free consultation where they will sit down with you and really look/talk about your hair to come up with what is best for you!
So use their Salon Services, but as for the Spa you might want to look around and Compare Prices first.
I stopped by here to get a "cheap" pack of cigarettes. My regular brand is Marlboro. They charged $3.25 + tax per pack. I can buy the same cigarettes at any Walgreens for $2.76 Including tax!! Really the only cheap cigarettes I saw were the Extremely Off Brand Variety.
In conclusion I would Not Recommend this as a place to buy cigarettes unless you are really desperate for a pack. The only way to really get "cheaper" cigarettes from this place is to buy a Carton and have a Coupon.
CONS: Can find Better Prices Elsewhere
The first time I visited the Pate was 19 years ago...it was fantastic. A childs dream! There were huge aircraft everywhere...bombers...fighters...even a "spruce goose".
Well times have changed. The majority of the aircraft sat outside and fell into such disrepair that they were sold back to the government and other places. So, basically the once fantastic collection of Historical Aircraft has dwindled into nothingness. What really saddens me is it is not really the Pates fault as the Museum has always been free/donations welcome.
With all that said, there is still a huge building full of Vintage Automobiles. This collection of antique cars range from the first one ever to be built, to the classics from the 30's 40's and 50's all the way up to a Delorean! There are so many examples that it is truly a Visual walkthrough of the American Automobile Revolution!
Well worth a Visit for a unique experience you are not likely to find elsewhere.
I have visited this Museum many times over the last 20 years. It never ceases to amaze me at how well they reinvent themselves year after year!
Although some of my favorite exibits have long since been replaced, the new ones are just as fantastic. The kids will especially like digging for Dino Bones in the "excavation" site!
A must-do is pay the extra to see a show at the Omni Imax! It is an amazing experience that puts you right into the show.
PROS: Exhibits to interest all ages!
Fossil Rim is Fantastic! You drive through this huge animal preserve at your own pace. The different species have no qualms about coming up to your car and sticking their heads in through the window! Its amazing how close you can get to the Zebras, Giraffes, Llhamas....!
The scenic overlook is really a nice 1/2 way point. I always bring my own lunch and eat on the cliff where there is always a cool breeze blowing! There is also a Gift shop here with many unusual Gifts made by Local Artisans.
You can not turn around and "revisit" the drive....so take your time and really enjoy the drive. There is no time limit, so really use the 1/2 way point to stretch your legs, use the restroom and eat/drink something.
PROS: Unique Up Close Interaction with Wildlife
CONS: A bit Pricey but well worth it!
I love the Fort Worth Zoo!! 5 years ago I got a Family Membership for the first time and have since renewed it every year.
I can not say enough about the Texas Wild Section. It was really well thought out and literally takes you on a Journey through the different regions of Texas. There are a couple of different shows to be seen, one of which demonstrates the impact of Storms (aka Texas Twisters) on our Furry Friends. There is also a huge emphasis placed on Conservation and How important it is to stop destroying our Native Animals Habitats. There are thousands of facts to be learnt about the state that you usually don't learn in school. It is very important for our children to see these animals in particular and to see how drastically their numbers have been reduced throughout the state.
Besides the Texas Wild Section, the Zoo has many other great sections focusing on Animals from around the world. Ever since they were born, I can't seem to get enough of the White Tiger Cubs!
Bring a Cooler with your lunch and plan to have a Picnic in one of the Shady areas with Picnic Tables set up.
A really neat time to visit is November. With cooler weather, the park is less crowded, while the animals are More Active!!
PROS: Highly Educational and Well Thought LayOut for a Zoo
CONS: Weekend are Very Crowed.
20, 15, even 10 years ago Traders Village was an amazing Outdoor Flea Market where you could find Antiques Galore.
Over the past 7 years it has really taken a nosedive. The majority of the Dealers out there now sell cheap dimestore trinkets and junk. There are name brand knockoffs galore and knives and taser guns to boot!
I wish the Antique Dealers hadn't left because years ago this was a truly unique place worthy of a full day of exploring.
CONS: Booth after Booth of Knockoffs and Cheap Dollar/Dime Store Items
If you want a vacuum and you want one that is going to last...look no farther than Evans. You will not find the cheap boxed Vacuums like at Walmart. What you will find are Salepeople who KNOW vacuums. They know what to recommend for what you are looking for. When you buy a Vacuum from Evans, you know that you have bought a Vacuum for the next 20-30 years.
I also recommend them for Vacuum Repair. My mom has had the same Hoover or Kirby (I can't recall) for 15 years. It went Kaput, yet she refused to get rid of it as she said it was the best Vacuum she ever owned. I took it to Evans and not only did they repair it they made it operate like Brand New!!
PROS: THEY REALLY KNOW THEIR VACUUMS!!
This is one of three Gene Allens in the Arlington Area. This Hallmark is fairly large and chock full of amazing Gifts.
Unlike the Corporate hallmark stores, the private ones seem to have more of a Variety of Different Collectibles. This is one of those stores.
Beside carrying the usual Hallmark Cards and Keepsake Ornaments, they have a wide selection of Yankee Candles, Department 56, Jim Shore, TY Beanie Babies...and Many More!!
When I don't know exactly what to get someone, I come here. I have never left without having found the "perfect" gift!
