eZeeCopy provides a one-stop shop for customers seeking to maximize the efficacy and aesthetics of their printed materials. With today’s deal, aspiring business moguls and perfectionist party planners can bring the layouts they want printed to the store and let eZeeCopy get to work spawning 500 copies of the desired design. Inflate the attendance of your birthday bash or lawn party, or officially announce your entry into the business of professional cat speculating. While waiting on orders to be completed, customers can turn their attention to the flat-screen LCD TV or take advantage of the store’s free wireless Internet. A PC and two Ethernet-equipped workstations allow patrons to make last-minute tweaks to a design or amuse themselves while they wait for their printing to be done. Orders can also be left at the store and picked up at a later time, allowing customers to devote their days to obligations such as making grocery lists, buying groceries, or drawing faces on all the watermelons at the grocery store.
With machines set up in rows to encourage competition, many ordinary gyms cater to men's bodies and psychology, right down to the urinals that were accidentally installed in the women's locker room. At Curves, you'll move around a circle of hydraulic resistance machines designed to work with women's bodies and promote weight loss, protect against osteoporosis, and deal with arthritis. An experienced trainer is always nearby to help manage machine maneuvering and muscle making. Instead of fiddling with weight stacks and losing momentum, the hydraulic machines use body weight and fitness levels to create resistance that matches abilities, decreasing the risk of soreness or injury. Because traditional lift-and-lower motions create bulky muscles, each machine uses push-and-pull motions to create toned, lean muscles perfect for crushing a grapefruit without looking like you can.
Elements Coffee Co. provides customers with caffeinated body fuel within a cozy, couch-laden atmosphere. Its bean brewers and sandwich slingers have crafted a multifarious menu, decorated with such creations as the Big New Yorker—corned beef and pastrami huddled beneath a canopy of sauerkraut, swiss, and mustard ($6.85)—and liquid options including the english-toffee white mocha, a concoction of espresso, toffee syrup, white chocolate, and a choice of milk ($3.35+). While charging up your brain battery amid knight armor and orange walls, take advantage of the free WiFi to surf the Internet, update your profiles, or start rebroadcasting UVB-76.

Unlike jerk-chicken pudding or fried-tuna Twinkies, ice cream makes for a delectable dessert that properly caps off any meal. At MaggieMoo’s, patrons can sample a huge menu of ice cream and other treats that are sure to slap a smile on any face and massage taste buds with sugary strokes. Try ice cream in flavor combinations such as Strawberry Skateboard with sprinkles, gummy bears, and marshmallows, or Cotton Candy Ski Jump with M&Ms and mini-marshmallows. Prices range from $2.79 to $4.89 for a cup or cone, $5.99 for a pint, and $7.99 for a quart. Ice-cream cupcakes ($8.95 per 4-pack) can be enjoyed with a spoon or spoon-fingers. Dream cakes (prices vary based on customization) on the other hand, come in appropriately oneiric flavors such as Maggie's Mud and Chocolate Heaven, and are available in 6-inch, 8-inch, and sheet-cake sizes. Health-conscious hedonists can indulge in strawberry-banana, creamy mango, and mocha coffee smoothies, whereas ice-cream pizzas topped with white-chocolate curls will perplex pizza-party attendees before blasting away reservations with deliciousness.
