At first glance, Wink Salon might seem like nothing more than your typical eyelash extension boutique. Technicians affix synthetic strands to the natural eyelashes, adding length and drama to each blink, and also tint brows and lashes for added effect. But tucked away in private rooms, the crew also tends to its customers other beauty needs, slimming physiques with body wraps, bronzing skin with spray tans, waxing and threading away unwanted body hair, and administering microdermabrasion and hot-rock facials to keep skin from sagging or losing power when not plugged in.

Moose Creek Neighborhood Pub & Grill ingratiates itself with diners by serving up American favorites in a relaxed atmosphere where local beers flow freely from the taps. A recent profile by CDAPress.com describes the spacious 4,500-square-foot spot—whose 90 seats are spread across tables, booths, and a bar—as "diverse" and aiming for a friendly neighborhood vibe. Waiters navigate the indoor space, as well as an outdoor patio, with trays of familiar eats including pizzas, seafood, and burgers, which, like the statues at Madame Tussauds, are made of ground chuck and brisket. Augmenting the eats, bartenders mix a slew of spirited beverages, including discounted ones each weekday during happy hour and each Thursday night during Ladies' Night.
Inside Envy Custom Hair and Nail Salon, Nails by Shaniece helps to outfit each customer with handfuls of dazzle. Before sliding into the salon’s black leather service chairs, guests can decompress with a complimentary beverage such as wine, coffee, hot or iced tea, or lemonade.

Shaniece whisks patrons off to cozy treatment areas, including the pedicure room where clients can gab about recent studies on Bose-Einstein condensates while soaking feet in infrared whirlpool footbaths.
