The aromas of fresh-baked blueberry muffins and hot apple cobbler fill the air inside of VIP Nail Bar, but it's not because there?s an oven in back. The studio?s dessert pedicures are to thank, calming minds with comforting scents while softening cuticles and skin.?More tropical concoctions?such as citrus sangria and raspberry lemonade?anchor each martini manicure, which softens cuticles, moisturizes skin, and promotes nail health. In addition to culinary-influenced treatments, the salon offers basic nail services and makes house calls for special occasions, such as bachelorette and birthday parties.
For some salons, highlights and lowlights are as modern as the styling services get. Medusa?s is not one of those salons. Its stylists can cut and fashion the perfect mohawk, and when your hair is dyed green, it?s not an accident. An onsite artist puts the capper on new looks with henna tattoos. Highlighting its alternative ambiance, each month Medusa?s chooses a local up-and-coming band to receive a complete rock-?n?-roll makeover. On the first Wednesday of every month, the salon turns off the music and blow-dryers to accommodate its clients with sensory issues.

Sheer curtains cascade down the windows and vintage pictures tucked inside gilded frames, evoking a homey atmosphere inside Salon Milano Nails. Faux marbled tables serve as manicure stations, where technicians cover nails with Shellac and Gelish polishes that protect against chips and scratches. Alternatively, acrylic nails cover unsightly or extra-shy digits.
Dog Daze Gourmet Hot Dogs' founders started out small. During a road trip that happened to wend its way through West Virginia, they stopped for gas and picked up a few chili dogs. They were "perhaps the best chili dog[s] ever," and the unexpected culinary experience inspired them to start researching their own gourmet hot dog restaurant. They wanted their dogs to be the best around, so they started touring the country, sampling chili dogs wherever they went. They also discovered any number of other delicious hot dog preparation methods, many of which appear on the Dog Daze menu. Today, they serve 21 different styles of hot dogs, plus sandwiches and entrees such as pierogies.
