Around Town -- August 2, 2013

Posted: Updated:

A remodel, a second location and an upstart -- with retro themes.  It's all new "Around Town" this week.

"They come in, their jaws are dropping.  It's time for a new look.  We've had a positive experience," says John Hoffman, Manager of Marlin's Family Restaurants.

An old favorite gets a new look.  The last time this space was remodeled was in the 1990s.  You'll find a top to bottom redo at Marlin's Family Restaurant with new floors, walls, seating -- and lots of TVs.

Management says they'll soon be installing vintage-looking fuel pumps to put an authentic touch on the gas station-themed restaurant.  Marlin's is open 24-hours, and features a lunch buffet and salad bar.  They're located at exit 161 off I-94.

Chalk paint.  It's all the rage, says the owner of Eco Chic, who adds a Bismarck store to her Fargo business.  Re-purposing furniture and helping customers do the same is the focus of eco-friendly Eco Chic.  "We also sell vintage decor, salvage items, old windows, old crates -- all that kind of old fun stuff that you find when you're out there picking.  You know, everybody sees 'American Pickers' on TV, and everybody's out there finding that great old stuff," says Maria Bosak, Owner of Eco Chic.

Now, you need look no further than 2100 East Broadway where Owner Maria Bosak says you can buy these treasures.  They'll also soon be offering classes to teach people how to use chalk paint.  For more information, find them on Facebook or at www.beingechochic.com.

Bombshell Salon comes to Bismarck.  Husband and wife team Chad and Amanda Faass open a full-service salon in the Gulch Block Building on Main Street.  The salon offers colors, cuts, extensions, make-up, waxing, and spray tanning.

While you're there getting pampered, check out the design.  The owners worked with people in New York and Denver to create a special environment with true outdoor lighting.

Otherwise, what makes their salon so special?  "Experience, the atmosphere -- the atmosphere is amazing.  We've been training our girls and guys for a long time trying to get them ready to create that awesome experience, the downtown feel of a high-end salon," says Amanda Faass, Co-Owner of Bombshell Salon.

Bombshell Salon is putting on the finishing touches, and expects to open their doors around August 12th.  For more information, check them out at www.bombshellsalonnd.com.
