Got a case of Mary Poppins malaise? This $5 Groupon is a spoonful of sugar for the medicine: tickets to Girls vs. Boys ($10 value). The play, a musical by the creative team behind The House Theatre of Chicago's sold-out show The Sparrow, is an extremely loud, fast-paced show about a brother and sister who find themselves thrust into a perilous, modern-day Lord of the Flies. High-stakes relationships turn into all-out war of the sexes. The director says it's like a rock concert, so the best way to experience the sound and fury is with a spot in the pit. This Groupon gets you in standing room and on the ground floor of the action (guaranteed swears, awesome music, violent themes, and partial nudity).
In the July 2012 issue of O Magazine, Dr. Toni Bark is pictured wearing a bright purple shirt and black yoga pants, suspended on cobalt silks inside her bedroom. This is how she exercises. Of course, considering that she's an alternatively-minded holistic physician, this offbeat health regimen is no surprise. Dr. Bark also brings an unconventional approach and a prevention-based philosophy to The Center for Disease Prevention and Reversal. Here, she offers medical tests, homeopathic treatments, and nutritional services to help care for her clients and the variety of bodily systems coexisting within them.

American Photon Lipo Centers’ physician-supervised staff offers noninvasive alternatives to liposuction and facelifts. Using BioSlim technology's red light, they can shrink fat cells during BioSculpt treatments or tighten skin during BioLift and BioRejuv treatments. The FDA-approved treatments yield similar results to their surgical equals, and they do so without the threat of scars, downtime, or hospital-room neighbors who lie awake plotting to steal your jello.
The welcoming atmosphere at Mikel's Hair Salon & Laser Spa complements its menu of pampering beauty services. Stylists employ Aveda products while treating hair to chic cuts and vibrant color, and can update looks with extensions and smoothing keratin treatments. For clients who prefer their hair styled invisibly, waxing, threading and long-lasting laser treatments remove it with ease. Aesthetic options, including facials and microdermabrasion, round out the salon's offerings.
At Enhancing Light Cosmetic Laser Centers, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Kenneth Dembny oversees a team of fully certified staffers who beautify physiques with laser-guided services. Photofacial skin rejuvenation, meanwhile, resurrects a youthful glow in faces marked by signs of aging, such as fine lines, sun spots, and mouths locked in place after blowing out candles on a birthday cake. Tattoo removal lifts unwanted ink, microdermabrasion exfoliates away dead skin, and skin tightening reduces wrinkles and saggy areas. A portion of the clinic?s profits go to Susan G. Komen for the Cure, which funds breast-cancer research and raises awareness of the disease.
