For more than a decade, Bridget Malmstedt worked as a master aesthetician at a luxury resort. Currently she flaunts that expertise inside FaceForward Skin and Body Care?a Victorian home repurposed as a salon. These historic surroundings are a charming antithesis to Bridget's services, which draw on all the latest approaches to skincare. Her facials exfoliate pores and help clear up acne and signs of aging, and her customized peels minimize the appearance of wrinkles and hyperpigmentation. When she isn't treating skin, Bridget soothes muscles by blending Swedish and deep-tissue massage techniques. Her enviable skill set even extends to eyebrows, which she shapes into perfect arches for clients who want to look sophisticated or into perfect umlauts for clients who want to look Danish.

From the ivy-covered outside in, Barrel 33 cultivates a cozy bar atmosphere conducive to long conversations and savored sips of wine. Their wine cellar, kept at a constant 56 degrees, hosts dozens of domestic and international red and white wines by the bottle. Reds include a hefty selection of cabernet sauvignon and pinot noir from Sonoma and Santa Barbara. French champagne, sparkling wine, and chardonnay from Napa and the Russian River valley, on the other hand, dominate the selection of whites. To accompany the wine, Barrel 33?s kitchen assembles plates of olives, duck pate, brie with Grand Marnier strawberry sauce, or crisp thin-crust pizzas. Red walls stretch around the interior of the wine bar, complementing both the stone-topped bar and the dappled tulip lights hanging over it. Tall chairs with carved arms and plush crimson cushions sit at attention at the counter. Outside in the enclosed wine garden, palm fronds reach up to the strings of fairy lights stretched across the patio. A wood fire crackles in a fireplace made from the same chunky boulders as the building?s exterior, sending light flickering over wicker chairs and the glass tables? ornate legs, which were donated by the late glass man, who lived in a glass house but never threw stones.

Casual and laid back is the vibe that emanates from Amigo's Surf Cantina. Its decor is festive, but not over the top, with exposed-brick walls and small pieces of Mexican art adorning them. The menu is simple yet tasty, with traditional Mexican dishes such as chicken mole, chili relleno, tamales, and taquitos. The Super quesadilla is an inflated version of the standard, stuffed with jack cheese and meat. On some nights, live music fills the room as customers sip house-special margaritas made with a selection from at least 10 different tequilas.
