A neighborhood favorite in the Gold Coast- THE place to buy haircare products. Any shampoo, conditioner, or product that you have ever heard of (including hard to find and little known brands) is here and at the best prices. This place is family owned- and the family is great. They are friendly, helpful and they are better at recommending products than any stylist I've met. If you tell them you hair type and "concerns" they will recommend something that I guarantee you will love. And they have all of the OPI and Essie nailpolish, brushes, flat irons and Tweezerman products a girl could want.
Con: they only accept cash, although they have a cash machine on site, if you are buying a lot it can be a hassle.
Pro: I don't know what my hair would do without this place!
This upscale restaurant has great food, drinks, and eye candy. The canopies on the river in the summer can't be beat, and the crowd is always dressed to kill. If you want to get dressed up and have a chic night out, this is the place to start!
Tsunami is my go-to restaurant for family events, dates, girls night out and special occasions. The owners and staff are friendly and welcoming and always make sure everyone is happy. The food is great and reasonable. In the winter, cozy up by the fire. In the summer, hang out in the outdoor seating. I highly recommend the Tsunami Maki and the Tuna 4 Way (with mango sauce)!
Dublins is a great restaurant for any time of the day (or night)- it's open super late and is always a friendly, comfy place to go. The food is greasy, but good for bar food. I recommend the grilled chicken fingers with waffle fries!
