Today’s Groupon is full of shag-snipping and mane-maintaining. For $29, you’ll get two quick, quality cuts, plus one free game of pool and one aesthetic extra (tanning session or eyebrow wax) per appointment at Too Hotties, a guy-centric salon in Addison. Add panache to your preening, or get your mop cut without cutting into time that could be spent climbing flagpoles.Texas Five Ball: The first player to knock five balls into any pocket is called “the juggler,” while the losing player is sacrificed to an ancient snake deity. The Crook and Bale: Both players idly hit balls with sticks and talk about football until one of them brings up what’s really on their minds: the night last August that can’t be washed away. Island Shuffle: This is Cliff’s moment to shine because Cliff loves this game. Too bad nobody likes Cliff enough to play. Sorry, Cliff. Oddball Out: This deadly game requires players to bring their own archery set and is rarely worth the bloodshed. Can be played in teams.
To get an idea of the kinds of services offered at Carrollton Square Salon & Spa, you need only look up. In one of the treatment rooms, a tent hovers over the massage bed, ready to catch clouds of toxin-dispersing steam. In another room, the ceiling’s wooden bars allow trained ashiatsu practitioners to buoy and balance themselves while massaging clients' backs with their feet. The only thing you'll find on the ceiling of the relaxation room is soft, recessed lighting and the trapped cartoon-bubble sighs of stress relief left behind by previous guests.
The salon and spa harnesses the historic charm of downtown Carrollton and is filled with friendly, down-to-earth staffers. This combination won over readers of the Carrollton Leader, who voted it the Best Spa and Best Massage in 2012.
