    I recently moved into the slope and was dreading hopping on the bus to go to my regular salon in Williamsburg so I decided to take a friends recommendation and go Slope Suds. I hadn't cut my hair in 2 years because I wanted to donate it to locks of love so I was nervous to trust someone new with such a big change. Tanya was my stylist. She listened to my request to have a mid-length cut that I would not need to style and that would not make my wavy hair look frizzy. I ask for this every time I get a haircut and never get what I want. Instead I always get a cut that looks great for a couple of days and then is impossible to manage once I wash it. Tanya not only gave me a great cut but took the time to show me how to style my hair in 5 minutes and she didn't blow-dry it she just let it air dry so I could see how it would look on a normal day and make adjustments if need be. The cut was so perfect no adjustments were needed. This is by far the cutest cut I have ever had and I still love it 4 washed later.

    We used Loin in the Sun to create our daughter's birth announcements. The service was friendly and fast. They helped us design the cards and they had a great selection of post-consumer recycled paper products to choose from. This is a great local stationary shop in the Slope. I would use them again as their prices are good and you get to work with a real person rather then relying on a online design tool.

    We had made plans to have dinner at the Italian restaurant next door but they were closed for Labor Day weekend, so we stumbled into Blue Ribbon as it was the only other upscale place worthy of a birthday dinner. It was a Friday night and the hostess warned us of a 45 minute wait. However the bartender kept us occupied with a free drink and we were actually seated in 20 minutes. The food was inventive and delicious. My steak was cooked and seasoned perfectly. The service was great and our waiter was casual but informed.

    My friend was visiting me from Brussels and I decided to take her to The Gate because I liked the outdoor seating and the fact that they let you bring food from other restaurants to the bar. When we arrived my friend and i went to the bar she ordered a glass of wine and the barman carded her. She showed him her Belgian ID card and he gave her drink. I am 8 months pregnant so I ordered a seltzer water. The same barman asked for my id and I told him that i did not have my New York ID with me however I do have my European ID card with me. He told me that they did not accept foreign ID cards (even though he just accepted one 5 minutes before from my friend who he served alcohol to!!!). He then asked me to leave as I was not allowed in a bar without the proper identification even if i was only drinking water.\r I don't know what his problem was but he was rude and inconsistent with his service. I will never go back there again even after I am able to drink alcohol.

    We spent 5 days - 4 nights at this hotel in June 2008. The staff was fantastic. We got to the hotel early but they let us check in early. We did not like our first room because it was near the roof-top swimming pool and we could small the chlorine so they quickly moved us to a beautiful room on the 4th floor. \r The service was fantastic. The consier was very helpful, pointing things out on maps, letting us know about local events and booking on us on a great swamp tour. The pool and hot tub on the roof deck served as a great refuge during the hot, humid evenings. They also serve complementary peanut butter and jelly sandwiches and hot chocolate at 10pm (what a sweet touch).\r The hotel is about a 15 minute walk to the French Quarter but we liked being away from the hustle and bustle. However if you are not a walker (and it can get really hot here) this might not be appealing. Especially since there are very a few places to grab lunch or breakfast around here and nowhere to eat dinner.

    I have been going to Cumberland Diagnostic for the first three months of my pregnancy and everything from their financial department to their appointment center to their ""24 Hour On Call Nurse"" is AWFUL. I have never been seem on time, even when I have arrived 30 min. early, the doctors and nurses are rude and treat you like a number, not a human. All ultrasounds and testing is done at Woodhull, which is miles away and very inconvenient. I really have nothing good to say about this place and am desperately searching for a new doctor and clinic in the area.

    I really wanted to like this place. Clinton Hill needed a fun, funky place to get your nails done and i was happy when the Polish Bar appeared in the neighborhood. I treated myself to a $25 berry scrub pedicure ($5 more then their normal pedi) . 15 minutes into my treatment I was told that i could not get the Berry scrub as I my legs had been shaved that morning and this would cause a rash. However I was still charged $25 dollars as she used berry lotions on my legs. The Pedicure itself was nothing special. No message and just a a basic soak and polish. However I wanted to give the place the benefit of the doubt and was keen to support a local business so I wrote them a letter telling them how i felt and they said they would give me a $5 credit on my next visit. I returned for an eyebrow wax a month later and they refused to give me a credit saying that they had no record of my letter. The cherry on top of the cake was that I got a rash all over my eyebrows a day after the wax.
