At The Book Gallery's two Nashville-area locations, savvy staff members point readers toward fiction, comics, and nonfiction titles available in hardcover and paperback at discounted prices. Thousands of kids' and young-adult fiction selections provide more educational entertainment for moppets than playing video games or rearranging PB&J sandwiches into alphabetical order.
Across Xtreme Paintball's three outdoor fields, colorful salvos paint the sky as opposing gunsmiths duke it out during simulated battles. The warzone field sets the stage for intense scenarios such as capture the flag and team elimination, during which players attempt to mark each opposing paintballer or stick a Kick Me sign to their back. The open-air arenas play host to casual paintball outings, special events, and league play.
Xtreme Paintball's safety-focused experts monitor each 3?10 minute skirmish. The staff also checks over equipment between each game, whether players rent their gear or airdrop it in from home.
Upon walking into Beauty Escentuals, clients find themselves surrounded by more than 20 different haircare brands—from Paul Mitchell to Pureology to Moroccanoil. The same products that neatly line the retail shelves also star in salon services, where stylists craft chic dos or use accent foils to highlight cheekbones and pupil-less eyes. But hair isn't the only focus at the salon. Clients are also pampered with waxing and threading services as well as presented with a collection of OPI polishes, handbags, and BaByliss styling tools.
The rustle of feet swiftly move over grass as quick successions of pops echo off the sides of gutted vans and cars. Over the splatter of shots fired, orders are yelled out as teams communicate strategy. These sounds are music to the ears of all players that patrol the hallowed grounds of Nashville Paintball. The five fields present visitors with obstacles such as inflatable Xs, large industrial piping, and old cars targeted by paintballs of games past. While Nashville Paintball's fields received an expert's touch when designed, they cater to players of all levels, even offering games arranged specifically for beginners. Keeping the sport even more accessible, they rent paintball markers and gear and don't check for abstract art degrees at the door.
After chalking up more than 18 years of automotive experience between them, ASE-certified mechanics Thomas and Chris set out to open their own shop. With the owners themselves on hand at all times, the shiny new business tends to the needs of four-wheeled friends through infusions of standard and synthetic Pennzoil, thorough safety checks and inspections, and tire rotations with an option for an aromatherapy tread massage. The staff plies their trade with a careful eye on consumer satisfaction by treating the cars with respect on the shop floor and building strong business relationships through friendly, one-on-one customer service.
DogWatch Of Nashville has been keeping pets safe since the early 1990s. The family-run company outfits yards with hidden fences that ensure dogs or cats stay within their owners' boundaries. They also install indoor units to keep furry family members out of certain areas of the house, such as the kitchen or antigravity chamber.
