The technicians at Justin’s Car Wash Center don’t stop caring for cars after they’ve scrubbed windows and chassis clean during an extensive interior and exterior wash. They also journey under the hood ornament for a premium oil change, after which they complete a safety check and top off all fluids. Other automotive services keep engines running strong as the techs flush out old and expired fluids and measure exhaust pipes' CO2 and designer-perfume emissions in state smog checks. Matching interior excellence to exterior beauty, Justin’s Car Wash Center diligently details rims, carpets, and engines with three packages and express, à la carte services.

From their kitchen stations on the second story of the Bay State Hotel, the chefs at Mulino's Restaurant plate up hearty portions of sophisticated Italian cuisine. Piled-high plates showcase tender linguine, spaghetti, and fettuccine clinging to gorgonzola cream sauce, italian sausages, veggies, and julienned strips of chicken. The aromas of wine-coated salmon and grilled beef tenderloin also fight for the attention of diners who are taking their time with their wine, served by the glass, bottle, or through a penne noodle. Desserts such as crème brûlée and tiramisu sweetly seal the meal.

Prepare for your 18 holes of terrain domination by taking to the grass-tee driving range ($5 for small bucket) or navigate your clubs to the putting and chipping green, where you can practice your precision stroke and pendulum swing.

A night of dinner, drinks, and dancing doesn't always have to involve three different destinations. At Shish Restaurant & Lounge, visitors can do all three, seamlessly.

From the bar, servers transport nine signature cocktails, flutes of seven types of champagne, and draft and bottled beers to lounging diners as they watch other cut a rug on the giant dance floor. Whether visiting on swing-dance Wednesdays, Latin Thursdays, or DJ-party Fridays, there is always something to watch.
