The certified opticians at Lansing Ophthalmology fit visitors with a varied stock of prescription and nonprescription designer sunglasses. Encircle blinkers with stylish Oakley shades ($89+) or shield tear ducts while stomping onions for wine with a pair from Cole Haan ($115+). Single-vision sun lenses ($89+) let wearers speed-read sunsets with stunning accuracy, and cutting-edge lens designs from Seiko and Pentax rival the styles sported by Hollywood A-list talking dogs ($234+). Although this Groupon is not valid toward services, a staff of talented opticians—many of them certified by the American Board of Opticianry—is on hand to diagnose eyeball prescriptions. All sunglasses and lenses are insured by a yearlong workmanship guarantee, subject to an additional fee after 90 days.
For more than 90 years, the experts at Henderson Glass have kept glass in cars, homes, and business in working order with their high standards for maintenance and repair. Cars shine like new after a windshield repair and replacement with a 20-month, 20,000-mile warranty available for purchase. The experienced technicians also handle glasswork for the house, ranging from replacement windows and storm doors to shower doors, custom mirrors, glass tiles, and invisible walls. Their services also expand into the commercial realm with procedures such as emergency board-up and installation of doors, glass partitions, and handrails.
Lansing's original sports bar assuages appetites with a broad menu backdropped by big-screen sports and quirky regulars who all play the wacky neighbor in reality's long-running sitcom. Warm up flavor feelers with an appetizer sampler ($8.95) of onion rings, chicken fingers, fried mushrooms, and mozzarella sticks before insulating stomachs against poorly aimed cannonballs with a bacon cheeseburger ($5.75) or chili dog ($4.25). Art's popular homemade deluxe pizza ($15.50–$18.50)—adorned with pepperoni, ham, mushrooms, onions, green peppers, and olives—keeps groups of competitive friends sated between rounds on the bar's shuffleboard, dartboards, and Michigan Lottery machine. Wash down any repast with a massive 32-ounce beer shooper ($4.15), which treats drinkers to the giddy thrill of chugging a fishbowl without the hassle of choking on another miniature castle.
The certified reflexologists at Rejuvenesence Reflexology believe that the body is always communicating itself, and they specialize in listening. Using their hands like tuning forks, the team detects physical and emotional disharmony through the hands and soles of the feet and attempts to restore balance through applied pressure. Each treatment ensconces clients in a soothing atmosphere marked by aromatherapy inside a private treatment room.
Felix Compos loves ice cream, and he also loves his hometown, Lansing. In June 2013, he brought together the two passions by opening Capitol City Scoop, an ice-cream shop that he hopes will help revitalize the downtown area. "Everyone, I think, can agree that downtown was kind of getting left alone, but now it's definitely being revitalized," he told an MLive Media Group writer. "We want to bring something that's going to stay and just promote business and attract people downtown." Visitors to the shop can savor scoops of MSU Dairy Store ice cream in flavors such as Hoosier strawberry and bourbon vanilla, and they can also devour savory snacks as Compos expands his menu. During the fall 2013 season, for example, servers will griddle grilled cheese sandwiches made with MSU Dairy's natural cheeses.
For the past 30 years, Another Look Hair Institute’s scalp experts have been rejuvenating thinning manes and receding hairlines with a range of preventive measures and synthetic hair restoration. The crux of their regimen is the synthetic Cyberhair, a fiber that mimics the texture, appearance, and styling properties of human hair. The Micro Point Link process ties four of these Cyberhair strands to your existing individual hairs, creating the appearance of a full head of hair by adding up to 600 additional strands. The team also helps mitigate hair loss naturally with their Hair Support program, which cleanses clogged follicles to encourage new growth.
