One of the nation's largest drag-boat-racing competitions, the Ozarka Oklahoma City Nationals pits a string of specially designed top-fuel hydro boats against each other in a series of high-speed quarter-mile drag races. Unlike traditional drag-car racing, boats begin at a crawl before gunning their engines to toupee-toppling speeds of up to 250 miles per hour, nearly half the speed of light. A general-admission ticket grants you a cozy spot along the downtown river's verdant thoroughfare, where you can take photos of the action while remaining relatively still in your lawn chair. Though not included with this Groupon, you can sate seafaring appetites with vittles from the event's on-site vendors.
Salon Cosmetique, a medical spa specializing in skincare, delights the epidermis with an array of professional services. Licensed aesthetician and spider-vein bouncer Gina Richey smooths legs and faces of misleading arterial treasure maps. A non-invasive laser sends pulses of light to gradually dissolve the spider veins, immobilizing them of their skin-crawling tendencies. Each 15-minute treatment (a $300 value) requires no downtime afterward, so active teleporting schedules can be immediately resumed. Most patients see their desired results after the two sessions have been completed.

The chiropractic professionals at Texas Pain & Wellness work to prevent injury and illness so that patients can fully participate in life. The specialists accomplish this by evaluating each person as a whole, investigating age, lifestyle, diet, and fashion sense while rotating the patient on a Lazy Susan. After pinpointing the underlying cause of any pain or ailments, Dr. Alwyn Lorenzo develops a personalized wellness plan that incorporates various services and techniques. In addition to spinal adjustments and massages, the clinic offers New Age remedies including sonic vibration therapy, which aggressively wiggles the body to simulate anaerobic and aerobic exercise.
The sizzling sound of fajita platters carried through Fogata’s festive dining room is softened by the gentle babbling of three indoor waterfalls and live music on Thursday and Friday nights. As parties share margaritas and tasty Mexican dishes, a wall-size projector screen displays sports games or what may appear to be a giant talking burrito to especially hungry diners. A recipient of the Fort Worth Weekly's Critic's Choice award, Fogata's specialty queso is flambéed tableside to melt around beef, chorizo, or shrimp, and guacamole is also smashed tableside to ensure fresh, custom flavors.
Upon first meeting licensed massage therapist Charles Hannington, one can be forgiven for not taking note of his smooth and dexterous hands. His bright smile draws the eyes upward and reflects his uncommon enthusiasm for life—much of which he derives from meeting new people and sharing his skills with them. Charles uses massage techniques to achieve his goal of bringing others closer not only to physical health but also to a profound acknowledgement of their own humanity.
At Charles’s eponymous Hannington Massage, 16 distinct modalities assist him in achieving this admittedly ambitious goal. From the firm and focused pressures of deep-tissue massage to the high-speed knuckleballs thrown at backs during sports massages, he finds unique ways to communicate the benefits of massage to diverse clientele. When his own nimble fingers are not enough, Charles enhances the efficacy of their treatments with heated pebbles, soothing aromatherapy, and hot towels. He prides himself on customizing treatments to each client’s individual needs and even dispatches outcall services to those who prefer the serene ambiance of their own Batcaves.
