Center of Mass is a great place to go for your basic handgun safety training or for a renewal. They are knowledgeable and never make you feel uncomfortable when asking a question. They now have classes specifically geared towards women and really know their stuff!
Phil's Tara Hideaway is a great restaurant. It's usually pretty busy, so plan ahead, but its worth the wait. It's tucked away off Hwy 36 heading down into Stillwater, so if you aren't careful you may miss it. The atmosphere is very rustic and quaint! I really enjoyed eating there!
Big Dave's is one the best places to call when you are in need of plumbing work done. They are professional and do amazing work. Their rates are really great and affordable and they don't do like some of the other larger businesses and charge you a ton just to look at the problem.
They are very knowledgeable and know how to get the job done!
