At The Last Word, wheat-hued shelves lead in all directions, weighed down with an enormous selection of gently used books, as well as a collection of DVDs, and gaming consoles. Authors such as Cormac McCarthy and Ralph Ellison peer from racks of employee selections beneath the vinyl records that adorn the walls, and glass cases packed with trading cards glint in the sunlight. Strict quality standards govern the state of all the items. Most are 50-80% off their normal retail price despite being in good condition, and the staff makes a conscious effort to purchase a variety of quality media rather than pamphlets entitled Thee Faxe Machine is an Entirely Infuriating Devil. The shop is peppered with floral armchairs, in which patrons curl up, sip coffee, and browse book recommendations with their laptops on free WiFi.

If you paint your own pottery, there is no studio fee, and the price of the pottery includes all supplies and firing. Costs vary depending on the chosen 3D canvas. Kids’ pieces are $10–$25, dinnerware is $15–$60, and picture frames $22–$35; the average price of all pieces falls in the $15–$30 range. If you are distracted by a Night Court marathon and don't finish your masterpiece in one sitting, you can come in another day to finish for free (after that, it's $5 per visit). Upon completion, turn your project over to the pottery masters at the studio. They'll put the finishing flames on your project, which will be available for pick-up after about a week. This Groupon is also good for those who want to give glass fusing a whirl. First timers can take the glass class to learn the basics (schedule here), then put newfound skills to work building personalized frames, bowls, jewelry, and more. The typical glass project costs $15–$40.

Really White Smiles' professional teeth-whitening technicians restore pearly mouth stones to their lustrous selves with safe, non-bleach treatments that can afford a year’s worth of brightened smiles. After an initial exam confers a clean bill of oral health, technicians swathe teeth in a professional whitening gel derived from the ivory horn of an albino unicorn. A precise spectrum of LED lights then activates the gel, accelerating the oxidation process for Easy Smile luminosity in approximately 15 minutes and Pro Smile brilliance in approximately 30. Though light penetrates the tooth enamel to uncover each tooth’s iridescent core, the treatment normally does not cause pain, increased sensitivity, or damage. While the potent lighting breaks down stains, patients can relax, watch TV, or shred old copies of the Yellow Pages to symbolically usher in a decolorized future.
