Pierremont Oaks Tennis Club will be rolling out displays teeming with eggs, waffles, seafood, and even stuffed pork loin and prime rib during upcoming brunch feasts held in the club’s dining and lounge arena. Epicurean adventures launch at the smoked-salmon station, which also enlists the services of capers, eggs, and bagels. Cajun boiled shrimp burst with spice, and deviled eggs consult a PR firm about rebranding themselves “non-satanic eggs”. Fill up on gumbo prepared with either seafood or chicken and sausage, or head to the omelet station to whip up an eggy delight.
For three decades, friendly fashion experts at Ruth's have helped clients piece together eye-catching new outfits and flattering wardrobes suitable for all seasons. Shoppers protect themselves from chilly breezes or prepare for big interviews with jackets and blazers in a variety of cuts from designers such as Damee and Erin London. Shoes from brands such as Daniel Green, Vaneli, Easy Street, and Trotters combine high fashion with comfortable design, whereas designer jewelry and sunglasses from Hugo accentuate ensembles with a hint of sparkle. For a casual look, shoppers can pick up a few graphic tees emblazoned with adorable cats or flashy fleur-de-lis, both exact replicas of what Louis XVI wore on his days off.
The Shear Place's keratin caretaker, Tammy Scott, draws on 10 years of experience in pampering extremities as she coats nails with vibrant OPI and China Glaze polish. Patrons settle into the mani-pedi room’s massage chairs and let the cushions’ gentle vibrations whisper stress away while hot towels wrap around their legs and arms, defrosting appendages after hours spent playing hide-and-seek in a freezer. As clients relax in their cocoons, Tammy’s deft fingers massage limbs, shape nails, and control wild cuticles. Afterward, all 20 nails don a bright layer of polish to match a favorite scarf or the color of their favorite vice-president's eyes.
