Best Martini With a Manicure or Massage

Bossa Nova

We've long been proponents of multitasking, particularly in the arena of personal care, going so far as to suggest to the dentist that our semiannual cleaning would be the perfect opportunity for a complimentary eyebrow wax. Thus far, the medical community has met our suggestions with derision. But it looks as if the clever marketing gurus at Bossa Nova, Woodmere's upscale comfort lounge, have finally seen the light. Together with staffers from nearby Europa spa and salon, the Bossa Nova bosses have designated Wednesdays from 7 to 10 p.m. as "girls' night out," pairing reduced-price Cosmos with complimentary manicures and massages. If perching on a bar stool and looking pretty is what it takes to score a 10-minute chair massage or a friendly polish change, sign us up! (A word to the smart cookies: Europa staff members begin filling the evenings time slots promptly at 6:45 p.m. Get in line immediately, or go without.)
