An almost overwhelming selection of cigars, pipes, hookahs, and various accessories surrounds customers as they enter the walk-in humidors at each Wild Bill's Tobacco location. Thankfully, this mystifying world isn't all smoke and mirrors. A trained staff is always on hand to help tobacco enthusiasts navigate all the available items?which often include different-shaped cigars from around the world.
This international selection sure has helped Wild Bill's Tobacco expand its reach throughout the U.S. Since the first store opened in 1994, the company has billowed into an empire with more than 50 locations stocked with cigars, cigarettes, and roll-your-own items. Many locations also house a lounge area, where friends can relax while puffing on cigars and trying to hula-hoop through each other's smoke rings. In recent years, the stores have branched out into the world of e-cigarettes, selling kits and liquids in more than 20 flavors.
The fishing guides at Ohio Steelhead Drifters care about more than the number of fish their clients catch—although they can certainly maximize that. They know the best fishing spots in northeast Ohio, but they also have other priorities, such as safety, education, and technique. That's why, when they're not leading fishing or rafting trips, they teach fly fishers proper casting technique during one-hour seminars at their home base in Ohio's Steelhead Alley.

At Playground World, children slide, soar, and bounce through a safe and spacious party room packed with playground equipment. For two hours, up to 14 adventurous tykes can frolic unbridled aboard Woodplay Play Systems, wooden forts, climbing walls, monkey bars, and swing sets. Netted trampolines offer safe springing, and a series of Goalsetter basketball hoops unleash each child's inner Kareem Abdul McFly. Parents can stash their own refreshments in the party room's refrigerator, ensuring that ice-cream cakes won't turn into milkshakes. Playground World requires one adult for every four children attending the birthday party to help ensure safe play and to officiate arguments over who gets the corner slices of cake. Groupon customers should adhere to the party guidelines.
Spitzer Autoworld has been providing exemplary auto service for more than 100 years, having gotten its start selling and leasing Ford Model Ts. With today’s deal, soiled street wagons can ungrunge their outsides for the foreseeable future with a quintet of washes ($12 value each), during which their exteriors will be lovingly cleansed of accumulated grime and restored to factory-fresh spotlessness. Dirt-averse drivers can also opt for just one exterior clean but supplement it with the added perk of a standard oil change ($35 value) to re-lubricate crusty engines and inhibit corrosion, plus a 27-point auto inspection ($45 value) to ensure the car still has at least 27 parts.
