Kennedy Salon and Day Spa

This was a hotly contested category this year, with Kennedy Salon and Day Spa beating out Abilities Wine Tasting Fundraiser by a mere three points. Naughty and Nice adult toy store came in a strong third, only three points ahead of Lo-Carb Connection. Hmmm... What does all this say about the Bay area? Looks like we´re a bunch of sybarites with a strong social conscience and a big streak of vanity. Kennedy Day Spa is a comfy, unpretentious place to soak up some pampering, from a haircut and a facial to massage and body waxing. No attitude, just lots of services — a la carte or in packages — to indulge your inner princess or metrosexual. The Abilities Wine and Food Festival, now in its 15th year, generally takes place in the spring and always benefits the Abilities Foundation, an organization that supports people with disabilities. It´s a great event for a good cause. We love the whole idea of drinking wine while helping out our brothers and sisters.
