Columbus residents can now experience a new realm of relaxation through hydration.
Rezilient Hope Hydration Lounge, 3189 Hwy. 45. Suite J, officially opened Wednesday.
Nurse practitioner Erica Horton and her husband Ronnie decided to open the vitamin infusion lounge in their hometown after traveling for a few years.
“There’s nothing like this here, so we decided to come home and put our roots down,” Horton said.
A first for Columbus, Rezilient is a hydration bar that offers customers customizable vitamin supplements intravenously. By injecting the vitamins directly to the bloodstream, clients receive the full impact of the treatments, vitamins and fluids, Horton said.
“Rezilient hope is a place where you can come to get rehydrated and refreshed while relaxing in a lumbar massage chair in our scenic atmosphere,” she added.
Prices vary depending on which treatment you choose. Horton added they offer various concoctions, including if you’re dehydrated, sluggish or even hungover.
“The greatest benefit is I am a nurse practitioner, so I can customize each infusion for exactly what you’re looking for,” Horton said.
Rezilient is open Monday through Saturday by appointment only. Those interested can reach out on the company’s website or Facebook for more information and appointments.
Also in Columbus, a downtown restaurant is no longer open for lunch.
Gon Thai on Main Street updated its hours in late November. Though now closed for lunch, folks can still get their Thai fix Monday through Friday 5-10 p.m. and Saturday from 3-10 p.m.
Moving to Starkville, there’s a new shop opened just in time for the holidays.
Disc and That, 329 B University Drive, opened Tuesday.
Owner Andy Hunt decided to merge his passion and favorite job into one. After brainstorming, he concluded that disc golf was his passion and working retail was one of his favorite careers: opening a disc golf store was the simple answer.
“I’ve wanted to own my own business for a while,” Hunt said. “… With COVID pushing everyone outside, disc golf has exploded over the past two years. I think Starkville’s growth along with the sport of disc golf growing, the time is right to open the store.”
Be sure to check out Disc and That. Though predominantly a disc golf store, just like the name there’s a little bit of “disc and that.” Folks can find lawn games and other outdoor activities such as cornhole, yard pong, kubb, ring toss, slackline obstacle course and more.
You can check out the new store Tuesday through Friday 10 a.m.-6 p.m. and Saturday 8 a.m.-noon.
