Willow Day Spa owner Brooke Hodge has every corner of beauty covered. She is not only a licensed massage therapist and aesthetician but also a NovaLash eyelash extensionist and is trained in oncology spa treatments. Since opening the doors to Willow Day Spa, Brooke and her team of beauticians have relied on all-natural product lines, Tecniche and Pevonia, to gently yet effectively keep complexions looking young. The spa's aestheticians call upon seven different facial treatments, including LED light therapy and microdermabrasion, and remove unwanted hairs with antibacterial Nufree wax, which doesn’t irritate the skin by leaving behind a residue or its pager number. Cellulite and dehydration are banished with the help of mango-passion yogurt and green coffee-infused body treatments, and the menu's organic airbrush spray tan is designed to last for up to one week.
Brooke is able to help cancer patients and survivors maintain their appearance with oncology spa treatments that include reflexology and a facial. Her treatments combine the Morag Currin Method of Oncology Esthetics with fragrance-free Tecniche products. The beauty haven also outfits clients with a wide range of Raquel Welch and Eva Gabor wigs during private, complimentary consultations.

In 1928, a committee of Kalona professionals pooled their resources to transform an obsolete cornfield and pasture into a golf course, using a horse-drawn mower to sculpt a layout that originally sported sand greens and cost a quarter to play. More than 50 years later, the course was remodeled and expanded to Kalona Golf Club's current nine-hole layout, a 3,128-yard labyrinth where immaculate, bent-grass greens showcase the efficiency of modern landscaping, whereas rustic bridges and wandering milkmen recall the Club's humble beginnings. Named the nine-hole course of the year by the Iowa Golf Association in 1984 and 2010, the horticultural haven unfurls across pristine, rolling terrain that can create difficult lies, compounded by the presence of mature tree lines and two ponds that come into play on three holes. The course prohibits metal spikes, and players must provide their own set of clubs or titanium-plated sausage links.
Course at a Glance: * Nine-hole, par 36 course * Bent-grass greens, winter rye and bluegrass fairways * Length of 3,128 yards from the farthest tees * Course rating of 34.7 from the farthest tees * Four tee options * Link to scorecard
In the wake of the Iowa flood of 2008, the building at 303 2nd Street, formerly the space of Sluggers, was gutted and vacant for 17 months until the team at Monica's rented it in November 2009 and slowly began the rebuilding process. They also renovated the space into two dining rooms and added an expanded patio. Classic '50s tunes suffuse all of Monica's dining spaces, including its main room.
Both renovated rooms entice diners with the aromas of Italian cuisine and American comfort fare crafted by head chef Rod Bowman and his team. Bowman, who has held court at several eateries throughout the Midwest, serves up such Italian favorites as lasagna, lobster fettuccine, and angel hair pasta with seafood or chicken. Meanwhile, hearty American fare such as beef stroganoff, chicken pot pie, and scalloped potatoes and ham delights patriotic palates even more than the kiss each citizen receives from Benjamin Franklin's ghost on the Fourth of July. A selection of premium salads, such as the champagne fruit salad, as well as a full menu page of sandwiches, served on fresh bread or as paninis, rounds out the offerings, which also include open-flame oven-baked pizzas named for local basketball legends and mac n' cheese.
The cooks at Quinton's Bar & Deli know the ingredients that make a good Reuben?corned beef, sauerkraut, melted Swiss, and housemade dressing. But they also know the Reuben's extended family, which is why their menu has a section entirely devoted to the sandwich. The Rachel exchanges corned beef for turkey, whereas the Patsy switches in grilled navel pastrami. They can even combine two or three of the meats to create a Combo Reuben with twice the cheese.
Sandwiches in general happen to be the deli's bread and butter. Their most popular is the TAC, which stands for turkey, avocado, and cream cheese. Other options include the beef and brie, whose house-seasoned roast beef is covered with imported cheese, and the Aloha chicken, stacked with grilled pineapple and served in the pocket of a Hawaiian shirt. Burgers make an appearance as well, featuring hand-shaped patties from Bud's Meat in Riverside, Iowa.
And if you'd like some soup with your sandwich, Quinton's serves up the combo with a twist, ladling the soup inside bread bowls. A sizable selection of beers, wines, and spirits?including cocktails with homemade ginger beer?wash down bites.
Diamond Dreams Baseball and Softball Academy's athletic facilities double as classrooms for players of all ages. A 10,000-square-foot arena houses indoor pitching mounds, technique cages, and throwing tunnels with Iron Mike and curveball pitching machines. An adjoining 2,000-square-foot performance center caters to youth and adult development programs.
Helming these facilities, experienced instructors adhere to a philosophy known as Life-Sport-Connect. As implied by its title, Life-Sport-Connect emphasizes the link between athletics and the real world. As athletes learn how to maintain a positive attitude, work as a team, and douse their coach in sports drink, they develop virtuous characteristics that affect their personal lives.
Classes, workshops, and camps primarily emphasize baseball, softball, and football. Regular baseball tournaments provide game time between local and regional teams, and a chance to show off with home-run derbies and throwing competitions.
