Listen up ladies! Do you like rewarding yourself with a massage, manicure or facial at the end of a long, demanding week? My guess is most of you do. However, the price tag that is usually attached to these luxuries can quickly change your mind.
But not for long! Cuba Libre, located on Colorado St. between 4th and 5th, offers $10 manicures and martinis every Thursday from 5 to 10. You pay $5 for the manicure and $5 for a specialty martini. Yes, I said $5! You can sit back, relax and sip on your choice of a Cosmojito, Appletini, Kiwi Cosmo or 42 Below Martini in the “Cuba Lounge” area of the restaurant while one of three manicurists shape up and polish your nails. And if you get there before 7, there are half price appetizers!
To add in some extra fun, you can get a henna tattoo, browse by local Austin jewelry vendors in attendance or hang out until 11, when local DJ’s start spinning.
What a great way to reward yourself without feeling guilty for doing it!
P.S. Also try Beauty Bar, on East 7th St., for a similar event!
