As members of the RJS Craft Winemaking Academy, Bayleys BrewHaHa supplies all the ingredients and equipment necessary for burgeoning oenophiles to perfect the art of winemaking. Today's Groupon crafts a batch of any varietal of Grand Cru International wine ($75 for a wine kit). After adding and mixing all the appropriate ingredients under the supervision of Bayleys' seasoned wine makers ($47.50 for brewing), the base solution is bottled, stored, and mellowed to develop complex aromatics, flavour, texture, and moral fibre. When fermentation is complete (about six weeks later), the wine will be ready to be picked up and bottled by its progenitor ($45 plus $9.10 with tax). All products are 100% guaranteed.
Ole and Cathie Jorgensen happily tell shoppers all about their store’s products—the Bowsers dog beds, the Go! and Now pet foods from Canadian line Petcurean, the DogRocks from Australia that combat yellow patches on lawns—but the conversations usually don’t get very far. Before long, one of The Dog Bone’s five staff canines arrives, such as Elvis or Betty, presenting a face that effortlessly commands all attention. Once the pooches are appeased with head scratches and belly rubs, they trot down aisles filled with toys, or maybe go hang out in front of the pastry case brimming with seasonal gourmet treats from The Barkery in Ontario. They're also known to sport fresh haircuts compliments of The Dog Bone’s full-service pet groomer, who ensures coats stay full and healthy so pups don't have to resort to canine comb-overs.

A retired Canadian Navy clearance diver, Wilson Diving's Doug Wilson uses his 38 years of underwater experience to help students reach a deeper diving level. The three-hour Discover Scuba experience begins with an instructional video on scuba basics, equipment explanation, octopus-wrestling theory, and diving fundamentals. Pupils strap into provided tanks, flippers, goggles, and other gear before plunging into nearby Juan de Fuca Recreation Centre's indoor pool for a confined water dive. Daring divers must come armed ready with their own bathing suits, towels, and ability to pronounce Cousteau.
