WineMakers Guild's wine on premise process gives customers an opportunity to craft their own palatable wine creations away from home, avoiding disastrous wine spills that coat carpets and living-room wildlife in rose-colored speckles. In as little as 30 days, visitors can create their own personalized conversation-propelling elixirs with quality juice sourced from around the world. Over 100 tasty wine varieties are available to make, with 30–40 available for tasting at any given time. Your Groupon is good for 15 bottles of Green Apple Riesling or Blackberry Cabernet, or it can be applied toward the price of making any other varietal. A knowledgeable staff of vinologists assists customers at every step, ensuring a tasty blend that is ready to sample in four to eight weeks. Fermentation, racking, stabilization, and filtering all take place on-site, bypassing the need for purchasing winemaking equipment, messy clean-up, or complicated grape-squashing dance steps. The stress-free process yields 15–30 custom-labeled bottles of high-quality wine unsullied by sneaky fairies and even sneakier roommates who keep "mistaking" your wine stash for the Kool-Aid they store in a wine bottle next to it.

The Chiller Ice Rinks are owned and operated by JMAC, the majority owner of the NHL's Columbus Blue Jackets, ensuring constantly chilled surfaces and a bevy of creature comforts. Public ice skating allows gliders to practice toe loops, triple axels, or the skating scenes from Saving Private Ryan, and then change in public dressing rooms, spectate from the 1,000-person seating section or an enclosed second-story viewing area at the Lewis Center establishment.

You see that special someone heading toward you across the room, and your anticipation builds to butterfly-bursting levels. “May I have this dance?” they ask. Thankfully the dance is the chicken dance, which all human beings learn in the womb. Had the dance been of the more challenging variety, you may have been stuck in fantasy limbo without today’s Groupon. For $15, you’ll get four ballroom dance classes ($20) and one private lesson ($25) at Emerald City Ballroom Dance Club ($45 total value), located a few fox trots from downtown Columbus in Dublin. Your Groupon is good for one dancer, so partners should pick up two. The basic moves of ballroom dancing are easily learned in a single afternoon, but their ultimate mastery can take weeks of practice. These moves include the sweep, the whalebone bustle, the glasgow haircut, and of course, the broken arrow."

Tomato plants are imperfect, yielding just as many inedible fruits as the healthy, tasty ones. The organizers of The Tomato Bash devised an alternative employment for the unworthy bounty, transforming the leftover tomatoes into ammunition for a massive ketchup making party. Participants are encouraged to sport silly costumes for the big event, as they are inevitably going to get utterly filthy.

To kick off the festivities, revelers are entertained with a cadre of food trucks, beverage vendors, and DJ playing tunes, including rebellious anthems encouraging the tomatoes to throw themselves. At 3 p.m., the tomato foam machine outside of the tomato arena powers up, pumping the stage area full of bubbly, pink fruit foam. Then the hordes of goggle-clad contestants descend upon a large arena and lose themselves in a sea of red goo.

Though its name may conjure fantasies about sprinting down crowded streets or bench-pressing buses stalled in traffic, Urban Active Fitness grants its members abundant space in which to spread out and follow their workout proclivities. At dozens of locations across the Midwest and South, members can sculpt their bodies in whichever manner they choose—from personal training with resistance machines and free weights to group classes in cycling, Zumba, and Pilates. A number of group classes draw on the gym’s urban theme for inspiration. Urban Iron, for example, focuses on building muscles that resemble the cast-iron beams of skyscrapers, and Urban Yoga closely imitates the poses necessary to squeeze onto a subway train at rush hour.
