Waxing the City held a grand opening June 5 at The Shoppes of UTC in University Park. The location, at 8475 Cooper Creek Boulevard, is the fourth in Florida for the nationwide franchise.
The studio specializes in facial and body waxing, and lash and brow tinting. In July, lash lift services will be added.
The Sarasota Yacht Club recently completed renovations of its new $1.2 million Spinnaker pool bar and outdoor kitchen.
SYC member and architect Mark Sultana designed the addition, continuing his hallmark coastal contemporary design, also used in creating the main clubhouse. Sultana is the principal architect at DSDG, where his work is defined by clean lines, and natural materials and textures.
Michael Dooley, of MM Dooley Group, Inc., was the lead contractor for the six-month project, which also included new pavers and poolside furniture from Outdoor by Design.
The bar features seating for 20, four large-screen televisions, a full-service bar and a freestanding kitchen. New roll-down shades were added that allow members to enjoy the pool bar and view, regardless of the weather.
