Overseen by a licensed aesthetician, cosmetologist, nail technician and makeup artist, Sassy Scissors gets clients runway ready with a host of beautification services. Experts with a combined 40 years of experience dole out prettifying salon packages, as well has body-hair removal via waxing. Pedicures and manicures shield finger and toe armor in Shellac, and skincare therapies such as facials and peels rinse away blemishes, wrinkles, and sand from Father Time's hourglass.
Dessert refuses to be an afterthought at Ye Ole Fashioned Ice Cream & Sandwich Cafe. More than 30 ice-cream flavors—repeatedly lauded by the Charleston City Paper and Moultrie News—pile atop cones or blend into milk shakes, and classic banana splits make mouths water with their pecans and cherries. The café’s scoops of amaretto cherry or java chunk are generous, living up to the vision of Rod Lapin, who opened the first Ye Ole Fashioned in 1972 with the idea of making customers’ jaws drop at the size of his portions.
Today, at more than half a dozen locations, including one helmed by his daughter Becki and her husband, that hasn’t changed. Ten strips of bacon layer the café’s signature BLTs; chili-laden, all-beef hot dogs weigh down their buns; and the plates are required to start lifting weights regularly before they’re allowed to carry double-decker sandwiches or burgers.
