The TD Halifax Jazz Festival unleashes the sonic artistry of local and international jazz, blues, and Latin musicians over the course of two weekends. Today's deal nabs buyers two tickets to see Forro In The Dark, DJ Waahli, and Zumbini Circus on Wednesday, July 13, from 8 p.m. to 11 p.m. at The Festival Tent. An NYC-based band composed of four Brazilian ex-pats specializing in dance-inducing world jazz, Forro In The Dark takes its moniker from "forró," meaning "party" in Portuguese. Montreal's DJ Waahli strives to awaken social consciousness through hip hop, reggae, and Brazilian beats, and homegrown Zumbini Circus mashes a plethora of percussion with strings and an accordion into a tiny clown car to create a energetic, audience-engaging show. Between sets, jazz aficionados may roam the general-admission seating to find the perfect spot to relax, dance, or contemplate why jazz musicians love Boggle. Refreshments await at the full-service bar, and local purveyors of grilled fare, lemonade, cupcakes, and pizza populate the new waterfront location.

• For $75, you get four three-hour oil-painting classes on Wednesdays from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. (a $150 value). • For $75, you get four three-hour oil-painting classes on Sundays from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. (a $150 value). Lynda Diamond indoctrinates students into the art of oil painting with intimate instruction and a focus on cementing basic skills. During intensive training sessions, pupils fill their right brains with classical painting techniques and transfer them from mind to brush to create oil-based portraits, landscapes, and still lifes. Endowed with an eclectic fine-arts background, the professional artist infuses old master methods with contemporary twists in order to expand the repertoire of seasoned painters and inspire beginners to explore traditional and modern trends. Diamond encourages oil-painting apprentices to embrace their individuality while composing pieces in order for their personalities to shine through their work and help light any poorly lit hallways.

Reopened in 2011 after a two-year hiatus, Briarwood Golf Club’s 18-hole executive course invites clubbers to an abridged layout stationed in the heart of a vibrant ecosystem. Briarwood’s shorter links make an ideal training ground for casual golfers; aces can loop the verdant grounds to shore up their short game or fulfill their mission to graze on the grasses of all the world’s courses. Each fairway plays into immaculate, revitalized greens, which were reseeded before 2011 and should be growing out of their brambly adolescence and into smooth, pimple-free adulthood in their second consecutive season of usage. A burbling river runs throughout the course, and cool breezes gain momentum on a course-side lake before swooping through the towering tree lines and tickling the collared necks of Briarwood’s birdie-hunting guests.

Granite Springs Golf Club's 18-hole, par 72 course takes golfers winding through 6,401 yards of fairways and greens carved into the Halifax countryside. The rolling terrain features a gauntlet of sandtraps and water hazards that make accurate shotmaking crucial to a successful round. The course shares the grounds with a driving range and short game facility, each of which help golfers prep swings, touch around the greens, and redraw golf plaids before kicking off official rounds.
