    MY BOYFRIEND IS 1/2 ITALIAN AND WANTED TO GO HERE, FOR THE 1ST TIME FOR BOTH OF US, FOR HIS 27TH BDAY. EVERYTHING WAS WONDERFUL UNTIL WE LEFT............. THE DECOR IS ECCENTRIC AND RUSTIC, THE LIVE MUSIC WAS BEAUTIFUL AND NON-INTRUSIVE, THE FOOD AND BEVERAGES WERE DIVINE, THE ""HAPPY BDAY SONG"" FROM OUR WAITER WAS INCREDIBLY GLORIOUS, ETC.\r \r THE PROBLEM WAS AT THE END OF THE EVENING WHEN I ASKED FOR MY ENTREE, ETC. TO BE WRAPPED ""TO GO"", WHICH I PREFER TO DO MYSELF FOR A VARIETY OF REASONS, BUT THIS TIME ALLOWED OUR WAITER TO TAKE CARE OF IT. BIG, BIG MISTAKE.\r \r HE RETURNED WITH A LARGE WHITE ""PAPER"" BAG AND WE LEFT SHORTLY AFTERWARDS.\r \r I PUT THE ""TO-GO BAG"" ON THE FLOOR BEHIND ME, BEHIND THE DRIVER'S SEAT. IT SEEMED STABLE AND I ASSUMED EVERYTHING WAS CONTAINED ""PROFESSIONALLY"" SINCE THIS RESTAURANT HAS BEEN AROUND FOR OVER 50 YEARS AND SO THEY PROBABLY KNOW WHAT THEY ARE DOING RE PACKAGING THEIR FOOD. WRONG!!!\r \r WHEN WE ARRIVED TO MY BF'S APT, I TOOK THE WHITE BACK OUT OF THE BACKSEAT, AND QUICKLY REALIZED THE SEAFOOD BROTH FROM MY Linguini Pescatore 18.95 Clams, Mussels, Calamari, Scallops, Shrimp & Fish. Garlic, Lemon, White Wine. in a Red or White Seafood Broth \r \r SOAKED THROUGH THE RETARDED WHITE ""PAPER"" CHINESE FOOD CONTAINER AND THE RETARDED WHITE ""PAPER"" BAG IT WAS IN. WTF???!!!\r \r SO, NOW, MY CAR REEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEKS LIKE SEAFOOD AND GARLIC. NICE.\r \r I CALLED TO SPEAK WITH THE MANAGER THE NEXT DAY AND LEFT A MESSAGE WITH PAIGE.\r \r HE DIDN'T CALL ME BACK.\r \r I CALLED AGAIN AND SPOKE WITH SOME GUY WHO TOLD ME THE MESSAGE WAS THERE, SO THE MANAGER SHOULD BE CONTACTING ME SOON.\r \r NO PHONE CALL YET.\r \r SO, I LOST 90% OF MY $19 DELICIOUS ENTREE, MY CAR HAS REEKED SINCE 11/18, AND I HAVEN'T HAD THE TIME OR MONEY TO GET IT THE FLOOR SHAMPOOED.\r \r PERHAPS THIS ""REVIEW"" WILL MAKE THE MANAGER RE-THINK ""IGNORING ME"" AND COUGH UP $100 OR SO FOR HAVING SUCH IDIOTIC STAFF PACKAGING SEAFOOD W/ GARLIC BROTH IN PAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEERRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR!!!!!!\r \r DON'T WRAP SEAFOOD W/ BROTH IN PAPER U IDIOTS!!\r \r EVEN I KNOW THAT AND I'VE NEVER OWNED A RESTAURANT, LET ALONE FOR OVER 50 YEARS!!

    I lost my job 6 months ago, so the last few times I scraped up any money to get my roots done, I went to the cheapest salon I could find: both were Spanish-speaking only, run down, and unprofessional. This time I decided to try to find a good salon and spend $80-100. I usually keep my eye out for hair that I like on women I see around town and then ask them about their stylist. This time I searched on google: ""colorist, Burbank, CA"" and the 1st salon w/ 47 reviews came up for ""My Bella Color Hair Studio."" I read a few reviews, was impressed, called and spoke with Sharon. I explained my dilemma and she said to come in @ 12:30 [same day] to meet with Alaina Wray [Hair Designer, Colorist, and Make Up Artist] and that she would also assist with the ""plan of attack."" I showed up and was pleasantly surprised that it was located across the street from the most delicious, healthy, fresh mexican food chain: ""Poquito Mas."" The street parking was only for 1 hour, so I parked behind the building, although the sign read ""Ribs USA"" so I hoped I wouldn't get towed. I didn't know where else to park and I didn't ask. When I walked inside I was greeted warmly and we got right to my consulation. There are 4 stations, 2 on each side of the room, with HUGE square mirrors for each station. There is a HUGE square table and chairs in the center of the room with magazines. The coolest thing is that the table top is covered with cut-outs from magazines of gorgeous models and wonderful words like ""love"", ""sexxx"", etc. The owner, Sharon designed this look and many other sexyyyy pieces of artwork in the lobby and restroom. Speaking of the restroom, it's so feminine with pin-up girls trimming the upper walls towards the ceiling. She picked out all of those pictures and decorated it herself. I think she's got another potential business on her hands!! Everyone loves a ""vision board"", she took this concept a step further by adding it to furniture, suitcases, wallpaper, etc. VERY COOL! Anyway, back to the ""hair""....... Sharon and Alaina chatted in ""colorist language"" for several minutes until they agreed upon what colors to use, placement, etc. I brought in my new clip-in light blonde hair extensions to show them when I wanted for my natural color to match. After 5 hours of work, it was all over and my hair matches my extensions so well that the saleslady at the extension kiosk in the mall said she couldn't tell I had extensions. Maybe she was flattering me, but my hair looks like it matches to me, so I've very happy. I realize these ladies gave me a discount because I told them my situation and I think they had pity on me and knew I would make it up to them as soon as possible. So, don't expect to get what I got for what I paid. My whole head was highlighted with some color-correction, roots done, minor hair trim to blend my layers around my face, shampoo, blooow dry....... I paid $100 and gave a $20 tip. This is A LOT of money for me, I literally have $100 to last approx. 2 weeks and $60K in debt from student loans, etc. Most people would say I'm irresponsible to spend this much on my hair, but it makes sense to me. I'm not married, no kids, so at least my splurges don't directly affect immediate family members. By the way, the shampoo was heavenly, with a neck and head massage, ahhhhhhhh!! THANK YOU BELLA!!
