Staycation Day Two

The last two days of our staycation were just as wonderful as our first. We woke up around 9:30 in order to get ready for our spa day at 10:30. Scott ran down on Main Street to get me a blueberry muffin and him a chocolate croissant. Both were tasty, and I wish I could tell you the name of the bakery, but he didn't notice the name. At 10:30, we were called to the lobby because our ride (a new jaguar) was ready to take us to Calospa. Part of our package included a massage, manicure and pedicure for two. I was naturally excited, but Scott was a little leary.
When we arrived, we were given our robes, some salted almonds, acai berry juice and a dark chocolate truffle. All of them were a nice treat. We had a massages and lunch. (I'm fairly convinced it was from Paul's Fruit Market.) After that were the manicures and pedicures. I chose Lincoln Park After Dark polish (below) and Scott chose neither. He wanted no shine or polish! :)
Our spa day was wonderful and highly recommened! I didn't think the prices were excessive, and the staff and extra attention made the extra dollars worth it.

After the spa, we went back to the hotel to get ready for dinner at Varanese and the UofL football game. I cannot say enough praises for Varanese. The main reason is because it was so reasonably priced. We fed four people for $100 dollars. We shared an appetizer, got a salad, four entrees and two desserts. The appetizer was delicious (baked brie with caramel, apples and walnuts.) The salad tasted fresh and unique, and each of our dinners met our standards. The manager and Chef Varanese even came out to all of the tables to introduce themselves and check on how their guests' evening were going. I highly recommend Varanese.

After dinner we rushed to the game. UofL won, and that made a wonderful end to a great day.
