bellasante of boston

I tried to make a booking for my wife and a friend's wife yesterday for a spa treatment. So, I called the concierge to book it in for friday afternoon. The problem was they seemed very busy and I didn't know what to order or which location would be best. I didn't mind either Lexington or Wellesley but the concierge seemed in a rush so made me pick one right away. Then I was told after picking Wellesley there was nothing on the day I wanted.
I really felt like they were too busy to deal with me and decided the best way was to get off the phone as quickly as possible and try again with another concierge or spa. After replying to a few "contact us" forms for a site I am working on, I thought I should at least let them know the feedback to see if indeed they are too busy or if it was just a bad time and I got the wrong concierge. In any case, I filled out their web form only to find it was a "post" action to "#" and didn't actually go anywhere.
They seem to have a lot of "best of boston" awards so the spa part might be nice - it just seems that half the challenge is to get to that part.

Jack Cards on the WSJ.

One of the startup web sites we have been working on and hosting at ProjectLounge, was reviewed by the Wall Street Journal. I am looking forward to taking the site to the next level - but a review like this is certainly a good start for the site. It is full of good suggestions and a positive conclusion.
"I think its system would be welcomed by many people looking for good-quality, well-designed cards that catch the eye. It saves users the hassle of last-minute trips to the card store, and still lets greeting cards keep their personal touch, which is what makes them such a permanent fixture in our lives."
