Joanne has more than 30 years of hairdressing experience already behind her, not including her very first years practicing the craft on her Barbie doll. Since she first twisted Barbie's locks, she knew she wanted to be a hair stylist, and she now has her own place, Total Image Salon, where she crafts face-flattering styles beside 11 other hair experts.
They work with all hair types and textures?whether stick-straight and fine or natural and curly?finding the right cut for clients and adding multidimensional color. They also dole out advice to help clients keep their locks healthy, telling them they don't need to shampoo their hair or run it through the dishwasher every day.
The 9-hole Short Beach Golf Course grants players of all stripes a chance to serve up strategic tee shots and sink putts on the shores of Long Island Sound. The 103-yard fifth is emblematic of this experience: the fairway runs parallel to the beach, ensuring constant views of the water and a feeling similar to that of Pebble Beach's seventh. Indeed, from any point on the links-style course, golfers can look over at the shimmering backdrop and the boats that pass along it. Though the maritime winds?as well as water hazards and bunkers?provide some challenge, the par 3 layout is intended to let novices enjoy the game without worrying about having the length or the argyle socks necessary for a more difficult course.
Inflated structures, slides, and games fill the climate-controlled environs of the numerous BounceU locations that speckle the nation. At each site, staff members closely monitor all activities as little ones traverse obstacle courses or pull on oversized inflatable boxing gloves. The crew also invites parents to join in on the fun, letting them bounce alongside their kids or make sweeping edicts from atop a bouncy-castle throne. In addition to open sessions, the indoor-play haven sets the stage for the Preschool Playdate program, where instructors lead games and activities. Special events include family-bounce night, which lets parents join in the bouncing or relax in the party room and do grownup things, such as eat marshmallows with a knife and fork.
The chefs at Acapulcos Mexican Family Restaurant & Cantina aim to cook authentic Mexican dishes unaltered by any Tex-Mex influence. Their recipes reach back generations within the owners' family and several miles into their underground tortilla vaults. Spanish-speaking servers deliver simple combinations of protein or veggies, topped with vibrant sauces: carne asada steak dressed in green pepper and guacamole, tender pork loin in tomatillo sauce, chicken in chocolate mole. The chefs' adherence to tradition doesn't preclude experimentation. Case in point: the dessert burrito, a lightly fried tortilla wrapped around apple-cinnamon or creamy cheesecake filling.
Both the menu and the decor change slightly from location to location?a painting of Mexico here, a tiled mosaic there. Each one, however, has a full bar where bartenders mix margaritas and flat-screen TVs broadcasting sports overhead.
