The Little Shop's kiddie wranglers lead children and their families in a wide variety of activities. Miss Jess's Little Music Class introduces kids to the basic elements of music as the children play instruments, listen to different voices, clap their hands, and learn a sensible way to mic a mandolin ($6), and Tiny or Little Explorer classes delight discoverers with books filled with bugs and dinosaurs, role-playing games, and hands-on experiments ($7). Although it's not included in the Groupon, The Little Café serves as a waiting area for parents, filling them with caffeinated beverages, snacks, and kid-friendly drinks.
The award-winning graphic designers at A.S.A.P. Screenprinting may spend their free time designing comic-book scenes and mastering musical instruments, but when it comes to work, they devote undivided creativity to their clients.

The team also swiftly brands tees with logos and whimsical images using embroidery and the professional guidance of unicorns.
Family owned and operated since 1916, this collection of car dealerships can skillfully service all horseless carriages. The veins of Duval Dealers' certified technicians run thick with motor oil and hydraulic fluid, giving them an innate understanding of a car's aches and pains. During the standard oil and filter change (a $19.99–$32.99 value), they'll install a new oil filter, refill up to five quarts of motor oil, and give the auto a multipoint inspection to make sure all the I's are crossed and the T's are exed. This Groupon does not cover additional or synthetic oil.
