This deal is good for any four- or five-course class that is regularly priced at $50. Upcoming gastronomic jam sessions with you and a gourmandizing guru include a May 4 summer seasonal themed class from chef RC Lumpkin—where you'll master roasted garlic soup, pan-sautéed haricot vert, and grilled peaches with honey—as well as an all-Asian delight kapow-wow with Dorothy Huang, who will help you master the intricacies of chicken and coconut-milk soup, sweet and sour shrimp, and three-mushroom lo mein. Of course, you get to eat everything you make, so be sure to bring your own wine or equally classy Capri Sun to Hollandaze Gourmet.
Texas Boot Camp Fitness's certified trainers fortify physiques with an ever-shifting compendium of exercises performed in an outdoor setting. Attendees of all fitness levels sprint and jump toward fitness goals, lifting their own body weight when performing pushups, chin-ups, and acts of levitation. Arms hoist weights, resistance bands stretch between partners, and friendly competitions reveal hidden stores of stamina and strength. Pushing beyond pure leadership of boot-camp classes, instructors supplement workouts with nutritional guidance and lifestyle advice. In the interest of safe and easy mirroring, coaches emphasize clean technique rather than speed or the benefits of cloning.
Mane Tamers' hair aficionados have treated stressed tresses with a combination of aesthetic and pampering services for more than a quarter-century. During a thorough headscaping, male and female follicles undergo a scalp-massaging shampoo, which soothes strands while convincing them to confide world-domination schemes and aesthetic ambitions. Then stylists cut cranial carpet to specifications ($35 women/$25 men) before gifting scalps a deep-conditioning treatment ($25) to help imbue locks with a healthy sheen. For women, the one-hour salon stay concludes with an eyebrow shaping ($13), where facial terraformers sculpt eye adornments in accentuating arches, dashes, or lightning bolts. Meanwhile, a grooming package shears ($13) male facial manes to appropriate lengths. Mane Tamers makes up the haircut cost difference with a $10 gift card for the next manly follicle feng shui session.
As the name suggests, Anytime Fitness is open all day and all night, seven days a week, 487 days a year.

Besides creating a safe gym atmosphere that fits your life's schedule rather than vice versa, Anytime's hours cuts down on crowds and long lines to use each club's array of cardio equipment, circuit equipment, and free weights.
Late one Friday night, clients of Mayday Pest Solutions, Inc. heard a strange knocking. Having relied on Mayday for three years to route brown, recluse spiders from their garage and spray their property for rodents, they didn’t hesitate to call, despite the fact that it was 10 p.m. A technician uniformed in a white polo arrived first thing the next morning and followed the noise to discover a bewildered possum hiding inside the garage. Instead of shrugging his shoulders and referring the couple to animal control or the local pied piper, he trapped the visitor, bid adieu to the unwitting hosts, and left to re-release it into the wild.
That kind of aplomb is the result of more than a decade of experience in pest control. The family at Mayday opened its business in 1998, and since then, the business and its technicians have demonstrated a rare dedication and lack of squeamishness if the job extends beyond normal requirements. Mayday’s primary targets are winged, stinging insects such as hornets and wasps, as well as ants, small rodents, fleas, and ticks, which technicians will valiantly pursue to the edge of any property line or backyard moat.
