Cut Loose Salon Moves Down the Street
Cut Loose Salon has moved to 196A Mayo Road, in the same shopping center as Subway and Doggie Details.

Cut Loose has been a great local partner to South River Youth Athletics, helping with fundraisers and promotions.
Edgewater’s Squisito Pizza and Pasta Has New Name, Same Owners
The Edgewater Squisito has changed its name to Bella Sera. The establishment operates under the same management with a similar menu including gourmet-style pizza, calzones, pasta dishes, salads, Italian subs, flatbreads, and a full catering menu. The phone number has not changed—410-956-8555—so don’t be surprised when they answer “Bella Sera” instead of Squisitos. Menu offerings and hours of operation can be found at www.bellasera-tasteofItaly.com. The other Squisito franchises in the area—Annapolis, Crofton, Glen Burnie, Severna Park—retained their affiliation.
