Leather cushioned, wood-paneled thrones and whirlpool foot spas preempt the pampering and attentive care provided at Attractions Hair & Nail Salon. From the head to toe, licensed cosmetologists, stylists, and nail technicians breathe new life into hair and nails. Redken products factor into fashionable cuts, styling, and coloring services. Nail techs use OPI and Shellac polishes during manicures and pedicures, and the salon offers sugar-waxing treatments as a means to keep the skin smooth, silky, and free from spontaneous ponytails.
Erikka, one of Allyüe’s licensed stylists, excavates beauty buried deep in the ruins of a dilapidated coiffure, snipping, clipping, and coloring strands to a state of jubilant loveliness using the power of Redken and Rusk products. After adding partial highlights to undecorated hairs, Erikka's expert hands mold a masterful hairdo, crafting the newly colored locks into a trendy look that complements facial features as admirably as the 90,000 cubic feet of multicolored mulch complements Mount Rushmore. The comfortable, convivial salon is a relaxing haircare sanctuary for worn-out heads of hair, ushering customers in and out for the treatment in less than two hours.
A triple board-certified anesthesiologist, Dr. Footerman draws from more than 20 years of medical experience to steer patients toward healthier lifestyles. Because Dr. Footerman believes that obesity causes many modern health problems, he's concocted comprehensive weight-loss programs that help patients shed pounds while improving their overall well-being. During an initial consultation, a body-composition analysis measures how much of the body's mass is composed of fat, muscle, and fruit roll-up. Bearing in mind the patient's medical history and weight-loss goals, the doctor tailors a customized program based on eating real foods and cultivating healthy habits. As a supplement to lifestyle changes, periodic injections of vitamin B-12 simultaneously increase metabolism and deplete the doctor's reservoir of Scooby Doo band-aids. Patients can shed up to 28 pounds in one month, and weekly weigh-ins monitor their progress.
Beneath a ceiling painted with a cloud-speckled sky, bistro-style chairs, faux-stone walls, and French signage evoke an outdoor Parisian café. After passing through an arched doorway, low light illuminates a sea mural on the wall, vines interwoven in a latticed ceiling, and a painting of the Eiffel Tower. American Culinary Federation–certified chef Erich Weber’s take on traditional French and Mediterranean dishes further transports guests to a European cityscape.
He folds meat, cheese, and sweets into delicate crepes, crowns juicy steaks with rich bordelaise or compound garlic butter, and tosses pastas with herb-studded sauces—all easily paired with wine by the glass or bottle. On the weekends, guests chew to the rhythm of live music, then take the advice of Caza’s wall signs, which suggest "Bon Appetit" and "Le Bathroom This Way."
Open since the 1950s, B & B Park Bowl?the oldest bowling center in Loves Park?proves that some things stand the test of time. Owner-operator Butch Olson, a veteran bowler, has also played here for years, and he strives to make the alley a family-friendly destination. To that end, the eight Brunswick Anvil lanes boast 12-strike auto scoring systems, bumpers for the little ones, and rental shoes that start at toddler size 9. On the weekends, the lights dip low for glow-in-the-dark bowling. The onsite bar serves drinks as well as hot sandwiches and, on Friday nights, hearty dinner entrees.
