Flushed from his position, a player dashes from behind a tree and toward a bridge. Just as he reaches the opposite side, he hears "Dead man!" as an opponent pops up from underneath. Paintball Country's outdoor fields—which include a scenario field, speedball and hyperball fields, trailer field, and a woods field—present combatants with loads of such tactic-testing terrain. As referees maintain house rules to keep players safe, teams navigate obstacles such as two-story tower buildings, upturned cable spools, and corrugated tubing. Between firefights, Paintball Country's staff serves refreshments such as pizza, nachos, and victory-flavored energy drinks. An onsite pro shop also caters to guests with advice and equipment sales.
If Ramona Lisa Abner ever goes to the Louvre, she'll probably get arrested for filling in the Mona Lisa's sparse brows. That's because Ramona—also known as Mona Lisa—embellishes facial features with permanent-makeup services. During each one-hour session, Mona imbues lips, lids, and brows with subtle shades that don't smudge after long days or encounters with moisture. She can also adorn cheeks with blush, camouflage irregular pigments, hide scars, and create Marilyn Monroe–style beauty marks. When she isn't sprucing up her clients, she hosts a five-day training course, an apprenticeship program, and a continuing-education class to help both new and experienced artists hone their permanent-makeup skills.
One Stop Rental accommodates customers with an invisible stockpile of efficient, clean burning propane.

Though not included with today's Groupon, One Stop Rental can also help ignite backyard celebrations with propane grill rental and an assortment of party equipment.
Blackberry tart. Banana-nut bread. Cinnamon-twist danish. They’re not decadent treats in a glass display case at the local bakery, but intoxicating aromas and robust flavors found at La Crema Coffee Company. Owned by Melissa and Dan Flohn, La Crema takes 100% Colombian coffee beans and transforms them into three dozen unique breakfast, afternoon, and dessert flavors such as chocolate raspberry, amaretto truffle, and bananas foster. For purists, the company imports unflavored blends from Central and South America, Indonesia, and Africa. It even vends a selection of non-coffee beverages, as well as hand-beaded coffee scoops and accessories for measuring coffee grounds or spooning them over breakfast cereal.
jcpenney portraits' professional photographers capture paramount moments in premier lighting with high-tech digital cameras and a choice of vivid background images.
