In 2002, beauty-school graduate Paula took everything she had—$5,000 and a dream of combining beauty services with holistic healing—and opened A Harmony Nail Spa. She even poured countless hours into hand-building many of the spa's unique furniture pieces and cyborg employees. Since the humble beginning, she and her fully licensed staff have pampered the minds and bodies of numerous clients with drastically different needs, from cancer patients seeking meditation classes to hardworking mothers overdue for an indulgent manicure.
Upon entering the approximately 2,000-square-foot facility, guests waltz through the gift shop's aisles before entering one of the spa's specific treatment areas. In the nail studio, clients lounge on purple thrones shaped like purple hands and dip their feet into soothing pedicure sinks. A Harmony Nail Spa also houses a garden café with free beverages, an Internet cafe with free WiFi, and a meditation lounge with freedom to close your eyes without sleeping.

In their 35-year history, disco legends Village People have delighted worldwide audiences with high-energy dance tunes, iconic costumes, and signature choreography, all of which helped the group earn a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and sell more than 100 million albums. Still touring internationally, the troupe of six men dress to represent various American personas, including the original Native American, construction worker, and soldier, as well as new performers taking on the biker, cop, and less rambunctious Wall Street power broker. The band serves up audience favorites such as "In the Navy" and "Can’t Stop the Music" before showcasing its crown jewel, "Y.M.C.A.," which earned a spot in the Guinness Book of World Records when 40,000 fans simultaneously performed the dance at the 2008 Sun Bowl. The song, a staple at weddings, bar mitzvahs, and Freemason meetings, encapsulates the band’s signature blend of celebratory lyrics, carefree choreography, and ample crowd interaction.
