At Radiant Skin Solutions, board-certified Nurse Practitioner Rodney Scyphers and his licensed staff diminish unsightly spider and reticular veins using a non-invasive, state-of-the-art laser. During a free initial consultation, a diagnostic imaging device helps to pinpoint specific problem areas and track progress between the two sessions. In each 15-minute spider-vein treatment, a Palomar Star-Lux 500 laser pulses over the skin, passing through the epidermis to constrict enlarged blood vessels, rendering them less visible despite their garish new five-story platelets. The system’s continuously cooled laser head prevents injury to surface skin, minimizing discomfort and posttreatment downtime. With this Groupon, the second appointment must be completed within one month, after which capillaries may form the words "humble veins" in an attempt to gain the nurse's sympathy.
Today's Groupon charms the orneriest taste buds and bewitches the most ravenous bellies with $20 worth of food and drink for $10 from Goody Glover's. Goody Glover's is a laid-back restaurant and pub that the Boston Phoenix calls a "new-wave Irish bar with good food." It was named after the last woman in Boston to be hanged as a witch, an Irish laundress named Goodwife Ann Glover.
At the age of 16, Matthew "Matty" Hughes became the youngest-ever licensed captain in the port of Boston. Funneling his passion into a career, he founded Boston Harbor Cruises in 1926 to lead tours up the Charles River. What began as a two-man, one-boat operation has grown tremendously throughout its more than 90-year history, now encompassing a 21-boat fleet and more than 250 employees who transport more than 2 million passengers.
The Boston Harbor Cruises's staff handles all things nautical, from whale watching and speedboat tours to wedding receptions and celebrations for special occasions. Because dolphins are hard to saddle and refuse to obey verbal commands, Boston Harbor Cruises also navigates the waters with ferries and harbor cruises that explore the historic and romantic sights of Boston.
Though the leadership has changed, Matty's grandchildren Rick and Chris Nolan still perpetuate the traditions of Boston Harbor Cruises, furthering one man's obsession with the harbor and inspiring future generations to create their own memories on its calm waters.
By answering any and all questions about their erotic wares, the staffers at Amazing Intimate Essentials have helped promote safe and sensual trysts for more than 40 years. Their selection of massage oils, lubricants, and adult toys—which occupies stores spread throughout the Northeast and Texas—contains goods from such established brands as We-Vibe, Jimmyjane, and K-Y. They staff female-friendly merchandise, as well as products that help couples create more sparks in the bedroom than a master metalworker soldering a "do not disturb" sign to the door. The staff stresses openness and acceptance in regards to romantic endeavors, an attitude that also fuels their unwavering support of the LGBT community.
Ecco Restaurant and Martini Bar's staff matches wines and specialty martinis with culinary counterparts drawn from a menu of Italian-inspired steak, seafood, and pasta. Suggested wine pairings help servers increase flavor synergy, enhancing the lobster mac 'n' cheese’s fontina cheese and buttery crumbs with a sauvignon blanc hailing from New Zealand. They also embellish meals or stories about their last fishing expedition with the wildflower martini, a blend of Absolut wild tea vodka, St. Germain, ginger, and lemon juice.
Situated less than a five-minute drive from Logan Airport, Ecco Restaurant and Martini Bar houses a geometrically diverse dining room crowded with rectangular and circular leather booths. A signature wall scribbled with autographs reveals the John Hancocks of the restaurant’s myriad guests, and artistic clusters of light bulbs spread warmth across orange couches and exposed brick.
Groupon Celebrates Pride Month
Over the last 50 years, the gay-rights movement in America has overcome tremendous obstacles to become a powerful voice for inclusion and diversity. Even as it has grown, the movement—like Groupon—is local at heart, and we applaud the commitment to real change that improves everyday lives.
At Groupon, we are happy to add our voices to those celebrating PRIDE, their achievements as a social movement and a continued march to equality for the LGBT community. Plus, we love a chance to dig that rainbow wig out of storage.
This month—and throughout the year—we salute our merchants and customers who support PRIDE and all efforts that promote dignity, respect, and equal opportunity. We're highlighting these merchants' deals with a special badge to show Groupon's pride in working with people who share our values.
Think Tank's chefs—equipped with sustainable ingredients whenever possible—draw from global influences while crafting creative spins on classic American dishes. These culinarians kick off eclectic meals by grilling up a duo of locally sourced swordfish fillets before stuffing them into soft taco shells brimming with feta and pico de gallo ($11) or drizzling handmade lobster rangoon in sweet chili-plum sauce ($12). Then, they transform marinated Korean barbecue beef into an egg-topped Seoul burger ($11), wielding sriracha aioli and ancient magic incantations from the Goryeo Dynasty.
