CL!X Portrait Studios permanently preserves memories of mugs by locking them away in digital time capsules. Today's photo-fashioning deal leads you straight into a private studio, in which a quick-clicking shutterbug will turn the camera's eye in your direction and rack up a collection of 40 or more shots. Then, the photographer will help models choose their three favorite high-resolution images, ensuring no one picks a photo plagued with red eyes, exposed tongues, or ghosts giving you rabbit ears. Pictures come with full copyright release and are delivered promptly, often catching up to you on the same day as the shoot.

Hoping to provide their energetic children with a healthy alternative to video games, a group of local Des Moines parents came together to create The Playground for Kids. Its 9,000-square-foot facility abounds with inflatable play structures, towering slides, and a colorful treehouse jungle gym complete with tunnels and secret coves. In between clambering up and down play structures, youngsters scamper to the onsite concession stand to refuel with hot dogs, popcorn, and fruit cups. Throughout the year, the indoor playground plays host to themed events, such as Easter egg hunts or wacky sock. The center also offers up its facilities for private birthday parties and rents out its bounce houses as attractions for special events or reenactments of the of the last scene from The Three Little Pigs.

Open 24 hours a day, The Laundry Place conserves customers' time with speedy dry cleaning and attentive wash-and-fold services. After sorting laundry orders into piles of similarly colored items, friendly staffers pretreat stains and bathe clothes in a luxurious lather, which can be customized with a favorite detergent, softener, or smoothie mix-in (a small fee may apply; call the shop for details). One to two days later, duds return to their owners washed, dried, and folded. The dry-cleaning team evicts spots, smells, and wrinkles from a wide variety of garments, including wool suits and silk wedding gowns. Hangers are available for purchase upon request for most services, and coin-operated laundry machines regale guests with ocean sounds and legal advice as they clean T-shirts and sheets.

Unlike many of its competitors, CCW Pros is not necessarily interested in selling you a handgun. In fact, many of the family-friendly business's beginner-level courses are designed with safety in mind, catering both to those who own their own firearms as well as to those who may never purchase one. In doing so, the instructors cover basic handgun-safety principles such as how the fight-or-flight instinct can affect variables in self-defense situations and the benefits of the Center Axis Relock technique. At the same time, they foster a non-intimidating environment that welcomes teens and seniors.
