Growing up in his mother's kitchen in Western France, Laurent Robic developed a natural enthusiasm for fresh food made tenderly from scratch. After attending culinary school, Robic minced and sautéed his way across Europe, picking up knowledge of different cuisines and broadening his foreign whisk collection. Eventually, Chef Laurent traveled to the states with his wife. Today, he's amassed over 20 years of professional experience, which he passes on to students of all ages and experience levels during an ever-rotating lineup of demonstrative and hands-on cooking classes. Whether he’s passing on the secrets of winter soups and stews, demonstrating the versatility of chicken’s many kitchen uses, or unlocking global tastes with country-themed courses, Chef Laurent honors his art with patient, friendly instruction. A noted chocolatier, he also lovingly crafts French-style truffles out of Ecuadorian chocolate certified by the Rainforest Alliance.
As their name suggests, U can Paint 2 operates on the premise that anyone willing to put a brush to canvas can produce a worthwhile piece of art—and have ample fun in the process.

The hosts provide refreshments for their budding artists. U can Paint 2 also plans to open a new studio on South Bend Ave, where they will provide free child care during Friday and Saturday night events.
Moored Beauty Schools have educated cosmetologists since 1959, so they understand the importance of mentors for developing talent. That's why Moored teachers impart the secrets to transforming manes in a salon instead of a sterile classroom. While each apprentice snips locks stands, an instructor stands nearby, ready to offer guidance on how to best cut an A-line bob or sew in an extension. Instructors also nurture aestheticians-in-training, who smooth skin with facials and waxing services, as well as future nail technicians, who brighten fingertips with OPI lacquer.
World Gym Michiana furnishes 20,000 square feet of open space with an arsenal of cardio and weight-training machines, complemented by a lineup of group aerobic classes. A one-month membership bequeaths full access to treadmill trekking, elliptical skiing, and iron pumping amid attention-diverting televisions. Meanwhile, cooperative cohorts can hobnob throughout fast-paced aerobic workouts, as certified trainers demand that exercisers wiggle, shake, and spontaneously hover to their hearts’ potential. After intensive training, clients can refuel with a vitamin-rich beverage from the juice bar (costs not included in today's Groupon), or meander to the locker room for a stint in the dry sauna or to intimidate showerheads with their rippling biceps. Housed inside the Town & Country Shopping Center, the family-owned-and-operated wellness epicenter sparkles with a meticulously clean interior and brims with line after line of well-maintained muscle machinery. Though only aerobic classes are included with this Groupon, members can also join one of the other fitness classes for an additional fee.
