Where everybody knows your name
There are those shops and restaurants that inspire — the small independent shops where the shop owners recognize your kids and are as happy see you as you are to see them. They are the shops that you could move into on the spot, that has a collection of items that you could have sworn the owners were shopping just for you. And then there are the restaurants — the ones that upon opening transforms a city block. They have the perfect amount of food selection on the menu, the music is never to loud and food is fresh and good. These are the shops and restaurants that when you are having a bad day, they seem to turn your mood around. We have a few of those shops close to home — which make the weekends just a little more sweeter.
