For 35 years, the designers at Petals To Go have assembled prearranged and custom flower displays for every occasion, from pristine wedding bouquets to heartfelt sympathy arrangements. They also offer market-style bouquets and bulk flowers for guests interested in creating their own floral designs. As an edible treat or thoughtful gift, staffers can recommend gourmet baskets or Build-A-Bear-Workshop teddy bears that convey messages such as "Happy Birthday," "Cheer Up," or "I'm Sorry I Called Your Goldfish 'Ugly.'"
Classes are held at an outdoor range.
Feel Safe Gun Training rents semi-automatic handguns, including the CZ 82.
True to their company's name, firearms instructors Travis and Sherry Humphreys want their students to feel safe when handling guns. That shouldn't be too hard, thanks to their qualifications, which include NRA and Texas DPS certifications. In fact, Travis has been shooting since the age of five, and he served in both the US Army and Navy. One of his first firearms students was Sherry herself, and then the two started training friends and family. Along the way, they developed their own training method, which they now employ during CHL and handgun classes at Feel Safe Gun Training.

Big River Grill?s cooks culled from myriad culinary traditions when crafting their menu. Toppings as diverse as baked ham and chipotle mayo top pizzas, and 15 burger combinations include the Slammin? Dam burger piled high with fried cheese sticks, bacon, and housemade ranch. Kebabs, crab cakes, and gyros arrive on the plate with a choice of dipping sauce, including cilantro-lime aioli and basil pesto. The chefs mix and match Breyers ice-cream flavors and crumbled mix-ins to craft such custom options as chili-pepper pineapple, Twinkie bacon honey bits, and pretzel brownie cookie cake.
From within Stone Hill Shopping Center, Great Nails technicians live up to the salon's name by expertly refreshing hands and feet with an array of nail services. With more than 140 years of combined experience, the nail artists at Great Nails are well-versed in decorating fingers and toes with chip-resistant shellac polish, natural-looking Solar Nails French tips, flexible-yet-durable gel nails, and acrylic tips. During pedicures, feet are pampered with an exfoliating sea-salt and moisturizing honey-shea butter lotion that’s more soothing than napping in George Clooney’s laundry hamper, and reflexology sessions focus on relieving pains across the body by applying pressure to specific points along the feet. When not focusing on bettering the nails of adults and kids, Great Nails employs a Zerona body-contouring laser treatment that aims to painlessly reduce fat.
The chefs at La Pâtisserie by Oven-Fresh Delights satisfy sweet and savory cravings with a menu of handcrafted French-style pastries, sandwiches, and desserts. The Paris-Brest is a traditional dessert inspired by the Tour de France that fills a ring of pastry dough with rich hazelnut cream to resemble the tire of a bicycle or the donuts on strings used to train cyclists. A thick crust bookends raspberries suspended in whipped cream in the framboisier, and long prisms of succès praliné embed sweetened nuts in buttercream sandwiches. Letting influences from French kitchens shine through all the while, cooks stir pots of rich béchamel sauce and assemble croquet-madames, open-faced stacks of brioche, black-forest ham, and three types of cheese. Butter twists into savory dough for croissants, and from the oven drift scents that hint at spinach and leek quiches.
