Tan Pro USA has been compensating for the less-than-ideal latitudinal coordinates of Ohio since 1998. It was then that they opened their first tanning outpost furnished with 30 UV beds, and they have since expanded operations to 43 stores throughout the state. They stock each location with ample tanning units, rendering appointments an archaic formality equivalent to gifting a sheep to your defense lawyer. After customers stroll in, they can slide into an Ergoline 1100, which boasts four ultra-performance facial tanners and two high-pressure shoulder tanners. Staffers advise which lotions enhance traditional tanning results along with explaining the benefits of the UV-free VersaSpa spray-tan booths. Harnessing infrared heat, VersaSpa booths impart a glow to entire physiques or targeted trouble areas, such as the inside of the armpits.
Every 20 years our government allows one business to turn every day of the week into a Friday with a series of special calendars printed on stone. Today's Groupon honors the restaurant gubernatorially ordained in 1993 with $20 worth of week-ending cuisine at T.G.I. Friday's for $10. Bring your family, friends, or a group of tourists that follow you because they think you're Jamie Farr to indulge in distinctly Friday fare at a restaurant renowned for delivering the euphoric feeling of having two consecutive days off work.
Pappou's Family Restaurant doesn't play coy about its do-it-yourself ethic and family-centric ethos. According to Cleveland.com, owner and chef George Sevastakis enlists his wife, sister, and children to tend to the restaurant, serving up Greek, Italian, and American dishes. Despite his duties as owner, George still makes time to prepare the desserts and baked goods himself and tends a garden where tomatoes, green beans, strawberries, and cucumbers grow. In addition to its Greek staples and seafood favorites, Pappou's serves breakfast pizzas in the mornings, topped with scrambled eggs, bacon, and peppers to differentiate them from traditional pizzas, which are only topped with scrambled eggs.
Qdoba's burrito baristas handcraft a catering menu of Mexican-inspired cuisine, customizable with a panoply of fresh ingredients for a taco, nacho, or burrito bar.

Tortilla chips with salsa bar and desserts complete each catered event, and customers can opt for burrito-boxed lunches and any add-ons.
