The open wine tasting salon Taste at Oxbow aims to expand palates with an eclectic menu of wines chosen to accompany artisanal cheeses and gourmet food items. Energy-efficient fixtures illuminate the salon's olive and merlot-toned walls, which owe their hues to chemical-free paints.
Though FLOAT’s neon sign is small and easy to miss in the window of a converted historic cotton mill, its interior is anything but unremarkable. The artist-owned urban art spa stimulates the mind with work from established and rising local artists and submerges clients in warm, dark chambers that relieve bodies of their senses. These floatation therapy sessions enhance relaxation and open up channels of creativity, freeing brains from the incessant digital stimulation and algebraic speed-limit signs of the outside world. While enclosed inside the tank, clients float in a weightless state in a solution composed of 1,000 pounds of medical-grade Epsom salts and water. There, air, water, and skin become alike—refreshing the nerves while recharging the mind more efficiently than sleep. Complementing floatation sessions are massage services that enhance already relaxed states.
On Point Entertainment has figured out the formula to giving people a good time. That’s because its staff is composed of celebration experts: experienced DJs, entertainers, and party planners who have seen dozens of parties succeed and know what it takes to make that happen. Together, they combine their respective experiences to help clients plan and throw memorable events. They have experience planning for a range of occasions, including wedding receptions, school dances, baptisms, corporate parties, and cultural parties, and flaunt a collection of music appropriate to each. Meanwhile, the company's roster of rentals further enhances the party atmosphere with photo booths, a raffle-ticket drum, a chocolate fountain, and a bounce house ideal for marrying a couple that doesn't believe in gravity.
