Drop by and enjoy free fitness classes, massages, makeovers, and tattoos as well as great daily contests with prizes.”
Every day boasts a different theme at Crystal Couture, carried out through design, activities, drinks, and food. Attendees are encouraged to dress the part and compete for prizes, including gift certificates to local boutiques, restaurants and more.
