It can be difficult to find a perfect wedding gown, a pair of jeans that strikes the right balance between style and comfort, or a clown suit with the same amount of polka dots as the letters in your last name. It can be just as difficult, however, to part with those garments once you have found them. With its prompt service and option for free pickup and delivery, Total Care Cleaners minimizes the pain of being without one’s favorite clothes. The professional cleaners can dry-clean or launder a wide variety of fabrics, including delicate leather and suede. Their expert repairs and alterations keep clothes fitting well, and their wedding-gown service removes stains while preserving cherished memories. When they aren’t restoring garments to pristine states or fixing holes in shoes, the team members travel across the Twin Cities for household cleaning jobs.

At Arlington Raceway, mud-caked vehicles roar around banked curves and fly down straightaways with the same vigor that has attracted spectators for more than 30 years. Seven different classes of wheeled racers compete every Saturday from May to September, from stock cars and sprint cars to motorized rollerbladers. After packing arms with salty popcorn (a $1 value) and frosty brews (a $2.50 value each) during a quick snack-bar run, spectators stake out general-admission seating (a $10 value each) before cheering on International Motor Contest Association–sanctioned drivers as they skid around the half-mile track. Set back speedway clocks on July 23, as vintage racers descend on the track for a symposium on antique derring-do and the impracticality of in-car Victrolas. On August 20, artful auto tamers create lifelike burnt-rubber sketches while speeding through intricate turns on Arlington Raceway's autocross course. Though not included in today’s Groupon, pit passes ($25) unlock access to the inner workings of the speedway, allowing spectators to take up-close ganders at precision autos or feed sugar cubes to their favorite drivers.
Seasoned sinew kneader Shelly Connors of Sweet Serenity Massage deploys an arsenal of Swedish massage techniques, tailoring treatment to meet the specific needs of her clients. A thorough, stress-melting manipulation of the corpus commences in 60- or 90-minute Swedish massages, during which Connors uses Scandinavian methods—such as long, fluid strokes and a heavy reliance on umlauts—to relieve aches and induce relaxation. Aromatic oils curtail friction while hydrating the skin and further soothing the senses with their calming scents. Bodies receive these attentions in a tranquil space accented by diaphanous curtains, Ionic columns, and a soothing soundtrack of klezmer punk hits.
Boot camp-certified trainer Thad Caron designs group sessions to fulfill figure-minders' individual goals using a variety of equipment and techniques. In ever-changing workouts, glute grinders of all levels burn up to 800 calories per session, the equivalent of four days of unicycling. Skill-sharpening equipment includes bosu balls for balance training, dumbbells and resistance bands to increase strength, and kettlebells to crush attacking cowbells.
Lake Wissota Golf and Southern Hills Golf courses feature traditional well-kempt greens and challenging obstacles. Measuring more than 6,000 yards each from start to finish, these ball-battered battlegrounds envelop players in grandiose frondescence as they steer dimpled warriors past water hazards and sand traps filled with frowns. Each hole greets gurus and greenhorns with three sets of tee boxes from which to swing, marked by specific colors according to difficulty. Rather than slow roasting clubs before rounds, players can warm up naturally with a small bucket of balls on the full-sized driving ranges, or swing equipment-toting hatchbacks up to one of the full-service pro shops to procure hole-conquering provisions. Both locations recommend scheduling tee times in advance.
