There’s a red felt pool table, a terrarium, a snack machine and monitors pumping out the latest R&B hits (or vintage episodes of “In Living Color”) — and there are also some skilled barbers who are always in the mood to give you a killer cut with a little bit of lively conversation on the side.

You’ve been part in charge of the food for your son’s big graduation celebration and you know the guests will expect something more than chicken fingers and tater tots. What to do? Call Troppo. They’ll whip up dishes of sweet and sour salmon, tender strands of fried calamari (with just a hint of tantalizing spice), savory pork cutlets served atop creamy-cheesy rotini and roast duck and figs nestled in a bed of greens and goat cheese. As Julia Child might say, “Bon appetit!” 120 North Washington Square, Lansing. (517) 371-4000.

Try a sinus cleansing treatment. Tired of flaky dry skin? Enjoy an exfoliating Caribbean Body Therapy treatment. This is the third time Douglas J has won in this category. 4663 Ardmore Ave., Okemos.
