To Constantina Hahn, hospitality is as important as the luxurious treatments and pristine facilities that won her studio a day spa Gold award from the Beaver County Times. Inside the homey spa, clients are greeted with complimentary coffee or tea and then led past rows of antique framed mirrors that reflect hairstylists and customers chatting like old friends. To make heads feel well-cared for, organic hair-coloring products??certified cruelty-free and vegan by PETA-customize hues, and Brazilian blowouts form a smoothing sheath around strands fried by chemical treatments or jealous short order cooks. Dermalogica skincare products also cater to individual needs and concerns as they are blended into tailored, age-defying treatments, and nail, waxing, massage, and tanning services ensure no limb, hair, tendon, or talon is left untended.
T-Square’s 40-acre playing area is a menacing wooded battlefield containing military-style tanks, obstacles, and foxholes from which to taunt, shoot, and telepathically tickle opponents. This Groupon takes care of the field fee ($10), which includes unlimited CO2, 100 paintballs, referees to ensure fair play, and all-day field access. The rental of a high-quality semi-automatic paintball gun and a face mask is also included ($5). For trigger-happy targeters, T-Square offers additional rounds of paintballs for purchase—increase your inventory with 100 ($5), 500 ($20), or 2,000 ($60) paintballs. Beginners and advanced sharpshooters alike will take to the field for rousing games of “attack and defend,” “arena ball,” “capture the flag,” and its not-so-popular offshoot, “let’s all talk this out before making any rash decisions.” There is an elevated viewing area for non-players to watch the games and shout out defensive strategies in Morse code.
Cody’s Café’s menu touts hearty American fare that runs the gamut from made-to-order breakfasts to a host of thick sandwiches and juicy burgers for lunch. A stack of one, two, or three golden pancakes makes for an elegant hat ($2.29–$4.79), and Logan’s big breakfast ($5.99) suits up two eggs any style to impress fresh hash-brown debutantes with warm complements of biscuits and steaming country gravy. For lunch, patrons can confirm the length of a footlong shih tzu with super footlong hot dogs ($4.79) slathered with rich chili, cheese, mustard, and onions, then sample Cody’s old-fashioned cheeseburgers, available in regular ($4.59) or double ($5.99). To sustain vegetable fueled go-karts, customers can also partake in dinner salads ($2.99) or veggie plates, available in combinations of three ($4.59) or four garden residents ($5.59).
Jazzercise is 60 minutes of cardio, strength training, and stretching that incorporates moves from hip-hop, yoga, Pilates, jazz dance, kickboxing, and resistance training with handheld weights. Dancing With the Stars multiple-champion Cheryl Burke is a big fan of Jazzercise's improvisational workouts, though luckily you won't need her dance moves to get the most out of your class. If you're prone to first-class jitters, though, you can review the basic moves online before you go. Expect to burn off up to 500 calories with each go-round.
Tropical Smoothie Café cools down overheated inner-beings with its all-natural smoothies—forged from real fruit and bursting at sippable seams with energy. Plunge into a 24-ounce low-fat fruit smoothie ($3.99), sweetened with your choice of turbinado sugar or Splenda. Flavors include the strawberry, banana, and pineapple blend of Paradise Point, the blueberry, strawberry, and banana oasis of Blue Lagoon, and the delicious dawnbreak of Sunny Day, which is packed with mango, banana, orange, and kiwi. If teeth start to grumble about having nothing to do, guests can chomp a satisfyingly solid slab of sustenance with one of Tropical Smoothie Café's sandwiches, wraps, or salads. Tear into a bistro sandwich ($6.29) such as the turkey guacamole, or gnaw on a grilled flatbread ($3.99) such as the Caribbean Luau, which is bedecked in chicken, mozzarella, pineapple, romaine, and jamaican jerk sauce. Make amends with mouths for last summer's exhausting gum-chewing marathon with the Paradise Combo ($9.99)—which throws down the gauntlet of appetizing with a smoothie of your choice and any toasted wrap, bistro sandwich, or gourmet salad plus chips or fruit. Menus and prices may vary slightly at different locations.
