Since 2009, the staff at DieHard Movers Denver has hoisted couches, televisions, and all manner of knick-knacks as it helps clients relocate to a new home or office. Clients choose the truck size—16, 20, or 26 feet—that will best accommodate their belongings, and then look for it to pull up promptly at the appointed time on moving day. The team then sets about hauling aboard each box and piece of furniture, while taking care to not drop any fragile items, scratch any walls, or mistake precious gold bars for doorstops, before whisking it all off to the new digs.
With experienced instructors and its five-star PADI status, Underwater Phantaseas can turn nearly any student into a certified scuba diver. Whether swimmers are dipping a toe into their very first lesson or sharpening their skills in specialty classes, they learn under the seasoned tutelage of instructors who have explored waters throughout the world. An onsite pool filled with warm saltwater re-creates the feel of the ocean without its chilly temperatures or roving schools of Disney illustrators, and trips to area waterways, neighboring states, and tropic destinations such as Fiji and the Cayman Islands acquaint patrons with the challenges of real-world scuba diving. The fully stocked gear shop lavishes visitors with the equipment they need for dives to the bottom of local pools and faraway seas alike.
The bonded and insured cleaner behind Nancy's Cleaning Service distills 15 years of experience into each residential and commercial job she tackles. Before obliterating grime, she consults with occupants to determine their specific needs, avoiding scenarios where her skills are underutilized or she's tasked to clean a kitchen in a building that doesn't have a kitchen. Nancy uses her own supplies, and her passion for cleanliness is on display in homes that have been thoroughly dusted and vacuumed, with the beds properly made and the baseboards scrubbed.
Bowling is the great social equalizer—a common ground where grizzled undercover clowns, blue-collar English lords, LARPer librarians, big and tall lingerie models, hordes of hive-minded hipsters, and the other two social demographics that comprise America can unite in common cause and topple a gaggle of stuck-up, inanimate wooden pins. Brunswick has been a household name in this egalitarian pastime almost since the beginning, with a company history that dates back to the 19th century, providing classic American good times to all manner of patrons across the country. And with today's Groupon tying the room together, you'll get to play two games (up to a $9.98 value) in its hallowed halls wearing a pair of freshly disinfected bowling shoes (up to a $3.99 value).
Whether it’s the tiny town buildings, flowering gardens, or obstacle-like oddities that capture one's imagination, Putter's Pride evokes an ambiance of adventure as guests traverse its three 18-hole mini golf courses. From a toilet seat left ajar to a pink windmill and a purple dragon protruding from the turf, the unusual hole designs keep golfers guessing and scratching their heads with their clubs as they match putts with opponents during a round, which takes about 45 minutes. Around the greens’ edges, streams splash down tiered stone waterfalls, colorful blossoms overflow from wooden flowerboxes, and farm animals look out from the side of a pink barn to referee putter swordfights to determine the authenticity of an alleged hole-in-one.
The whimsical decor facilitates fun at birthday parties, where guests can chow down on their own snacks and cake around multicolored picnic tables before hitting the pintsize putting grounds.
The shutterbugs at Janssen Photography divide their time between two scenic locales where they capture subjects around charming outdoor grounds or inside one of two contemporary studios. At the Lakewood site, a historical Victorian home nestles amid 2 acres of scenery that include a pond, waterfall, gazebo, and a 1940s vintage pickup truck. The Littleton studio rests on 2.5 acres of coalmining land, where a rustic cellar and a stone waterfall create evocative photo backgrounds. Once photographers have snapped sophisticated family photos, whimsical child portraits, and memorable senior photos, they retouch these images and immortalize them in print form. When they aren't snapping shots on their home turf, Janssen's photographers go on location to chronicle weddings, shoot publicity photos, and document fake lunar landings.
