I have gotten my hair cut here a few times. The staff is very nice, and thorough. They have even offered to cut my hair shorter, free of charge, if I got home and was unhappy. They are reasonably priced, and easy to find.
I got my first tatoo at the crown electric tatoo company, and have also refered a few friends, who have also gotten tatooed there. It is open 24/7, and the staff is friendly. The place is clean. The prices are quite reasonable. The only downside is they are cash only.
I boarded my dog at Ann Road Animal Hospital while we went away for a week. I had had pretty bad experiences boarding him at other facilities, and was a little uneasy leaving him, but was pleasantly surprised. The vet came in, and answered all my questions. He did not seem rushed, rather, generally concerned. When I picked up my dog, he seemed very happy, and not at all standoffish, as he has been in the past...Highly recommended!
The Pisces has a great view, and awesome food. Expensive, but worth it. Go for cocktails and appetizers...you can listen to some piano, and eat the biggest, tastiest shrimp youve ever had.
Great Food!!!! This restaurant is easily missed if driving by, and is small, but the food is awesome. The location is a little iffy, but the food is well worth it. Go in a group for lunch. The prices are great, the food is outstanding...
Although not in the greatest location, the new golden crown has the best chinese in baltimore. They are open really late, so you can satisfy your late night cravings. They have a wide selection of dishes, really cheap. The family that owns the restaurant live right upstairs, and will often be eating a big family meal right inside.
Walther Gardens has been in business since before walther blvd. was even there. Family owned, this nursery struggles to stay open, but always manages. They have a great selection of flowers, trees, bushes, and seasonal stuff, like pumpkins and christmas trees. The prices are really good. The staff is always friendly. In the summer, they have their snowball stand open.
The Las Vegas/Henderson Little Munchkins is a great playgroup. The meetups are always fun, and everyone in the group has equal say in what is going to be done. The moms night outs are always fun, too. All the mommies are down to earth, and really nice. If you are looking for a cool group of mommies, and a relaxed playgroup, this is the place to come.
(I posted Nellis AFB as the address, although we rarely meet there.)
The Baltimore Aquarium is a great place to spend a few hours. They have sharks, stingrays, dolphins, and exotic fish. There are dolphin shows you can attend. You can't bring strollers in, which can be a pain if you have a little one, and the prices are a little high, but you will have a great time. Call and ask about discounted prices. During some seasons its only $5 after five o'clock on Fridays.
This zoo is awesome. It's really big, with tons of animals, and lots of "hands-on" exhibits. You can take the metro, so you don't have to pay for parking, and you can bring a lunch, so you don't have to pay for food. Great place to take a day trip!
