The Garden Center
10682 Bandera Rd, San Antonio, TX 78250
I like this nursery. It is very serene and has a positive energy. Very good selection of trees, I'd say the best nursery in San Antonio if you are looking for fruit trees or plants in general.
I drive from the other side of town just to go here. And they offer planting service, which I have taken advantage of several times. The rocky soil here is a real PITA as anyone who was tried to dig deeper than a foot down will know.
Eurasian Auto Repair
11234 Gordon Rd, San Antonio, TX 78216
There are good mechanics and then there are shade tree mechanics and schiesters.
These guys are good mechanics, I refer my friends and family to them regularly as I know they are knowledgeable, ethical and fair on prices. They do more than Mercedes as I have a 2000 Mitsubishi Mirage. That's right 230,000 Miles and still humming..
They knocked out my maintenance same day and I like that the mechanics are the same guys I have been seeing for a long time. They don't turn over mechanics and the owner and service writers are mechanics as well so I trust them.
It's hard to trust people nowadays but I can say that I trust this shop 100% and highly recommend. I did not 5 star them because they do not offer rentals. Which I really wish they did.
Lavender Falls Face and Body Spa
19211 Huebner Rd #3, San Antonio, TX 78258
My wife is pregnant so I decided to send her to the spa, then I decided to go with her ;) to earn some brownie points. So I went with her and I got a facial and will vouch that it was really good.
She had a facial as well and also had eyelash extensions done here and was absolutely thrilled with the results and the quality of the lashes. I like the way they look and feel like they look really glamorous and I would rather pay for them than her mascara any day.
The owner was very nice and took good care of my wife while I was in the other room. I did not feel like it was a cookie cutter place where they do the same stuff on everyone I can't stand the chain places here San Antonio so I am a bit biased.
The environment is really relaxing and my wife thought the decor was very pretty. It is cozy and I liked the warm reception that we received.
