Howdy Cowboys and Cowgirls –

It’s time for an old-fashioned roundup of some great promotions, sales and announcements. Can anyone say “Yippee Kay Yay?”

…Always Look Your Best
New Yorkers Who Love Salon A-K-S now have all the more reason to. From Memorial Day to Labor Day, receive a free blowout (great to beat those summer frizzies) when you book a special Asian Herbal or MD Skincare alpha/beta peel at the salon. The best part: This is an offer NOT limited to one per customer, you can keep going back for more and more sleek, straight hair – is 5 days a week too much? What? I have unruly summer locks! See you soon A-K-S. (212.888.0707)

Speaking of amazing deals, here’s one for the guys (and just when you were stumped on Father’s Day gift ideas): The prestigious Warren Tricomi Salon and Spa is offering a free manicure for him when you book a facial, massage or cut…that’s a 2-for-1 pampering deal…and we like that! No more “I’ve been working in the garage excuses” for your deal old dad…it’s time to get those hands in as good a condition as that new engine he just installed in the Mustang. (212.218.8650)

Upper West Siders: There’s some action in your hood! Be on the lookout for the new Clarins boutique soon to open in your neck of the woods! No more train treks for a great facial or massage. Pop into their new store to experience their amazing essential-oil based products and treatments. Have a few minutes to spare over lunch? They are also soothing tensed nerves with their express mini treatments such as five-minute hand massages – yum – delicious as that slice of Ray’s Original you just wolfed down. (212.362.0190)

…Blame It on Rio
Mark your calendars for this Tuesday night, where those of you who can’t afford the sky-high airfare to Brazil can still enjoy the experience of one of the most amazing cities in the world. Lotsa Caparainas, Live Samba music, Carnival Dancers and Churrascaria Fare make this evening at The Boat House in Central Park the place to do some vicarious living. Brazilians love to party way into the night, and so will you… (212.517.2233)

…Big Brother Is Watching
A new search engine allows you to dig up juicy tidbits of information on just about anyone you’re curious about. Check out and see if they’ve got any dirt on you. Bad for private people, good for us curious cats!

That oughta do ya. High Ho Silver!
