Ever since football became too rambunctious for the limited confines of mess halls, it has been performed in stadiums. During this year's Pro Bowl weekend, celebrate the only sport legally allowed in football stadiums with today's Groupon. For $7, you get a single-day entry to the South Florida FanFest at the Miami Beach Convention Center—tickets normally cost $15 at the door. The exhibition, a 200,000-square-foot sports-memorabilia and card show, is the largest of its kind in Florida and is open from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. on January 29–31. There is no purchase limit, so pick up a few to attend all three days. Gift a few to your old high-school football teammates to relive the glory days of the Bash Brothers.
Miami Beach Ocean Watersports equips patrons with all the tools they need to plan an exhilarating day on the picturesque waters of Biscayne Bay.

The company’s customized powerboat whips inflatable banana boats back and forth with hairpin turns, and sends parasails skyward so riders can enjoy expansive views and score points with seagulls by pointing out unsuspecting picnickers.
Flagship Cinemas prides itself on treating Tinseltown fanatics to the latest in cinematic advancements while retaining the neighborhood movie-house feel of days gone by.

The included soda fuels intense aisle rolling and seat gripping in the theater's welcoming digs. Upgrade to a 3-D showing of some films for an additional $1 to fully experience the actors' emotional depths and prosthetic noses.

The management team at Stone Hart's Gun Club isn't shy about the value they place in hard work and personal sacrifice: they named their club for delegates Thomas Stone and John Hart, two courageous and outspoken signers of the Declaration of Independence.

Female students can also enroll in a women-only course led by History channel's Top Shot contestant Gabby Franco.
