Hosted by CARTI, the All That Jazz fundraiser entertains attendees with live tunes, exciting auctions, and hors d'oeuvres and drinks, all the while raising funds to help pediatric cancer patients receive state-of-the-art radiation treatments and comprehensive emotional care. Suited up in their best dressy-casual attire, event attendees can tap toes or wiggle pinky-fingers to the sounds of live music while noshing on tasty snacks and drinks. A live auction will vocally offer up coveted items, and a silent auction lets bidders make wagers more quietly than a librarian in a silent film. All proceeds from the benefit support CARTI Kids, a program that provides college scholarships, a holiday party, and a summer trip for pediatric cancer patients.
In their 85th season, the Harlem Globetrotters have entertained millions of parents, children, and general basketball admirers with a unique brand of athletic precision and showmanship. For their latest 4 Times the Fun North American tour, the Globetrotters will add new 4-point shot spots located 35 feet from the basket, which is 12 feet farther than the official 3-point line but several thousand miles closer than the prime meridian.
The Enjoy LifeStyle Center wears many hats in order to enchant the teens and youngsters who pass through its doors. The nonprofit serves as a photography studio, music venue, and theater, though its focal point is an indoor skate park, Dream. Replete with halfpipes, mini ramps, and rails, the park holds public skates every weekend, including times just for kids aged 11 and younger. The focus on skateboarding continues in the center's retail shop, which stocks its own line of boards and employs only cashiers who’ve heard of skateboarding.
A waiter, hands full of fresh avocado, peppers, and tomatoes, approaches the table. He expertly slices and stirs the ingredients in a lava-stone bowl with the nimble precision of a seasoned chef. Along with whipping up fresh guacamole prepared tableside, Santo Coyote cooks also grill sizzling fajitas, bake spicy seafood specialties, and roll freshly made tortillas that have been lauded by the Arkansas Times at two locations, with one recently opened on Pleasant Ridge Road. Meanwhile, bartenders blend their staggering selection of more than 100 tequilas into specialty margaritas beneath the metal sun sculptures that adorn the walls.
Inside Barefoot Studio's spacious, 4,000-square-foot facility, instructors guide students through a variety of yoga classes according to experience levels in two separate practice spaces. The studio’s team of studied yoga instructors lead students through a seven-day schedule of morning and evening 90-minute stretch sessions, including a beginners' class to acquaint newbies with the foundational postures and breathing exercises necessary for more advanced classes. Veterans gather for Hot Fusion Yoga classes in a 92- to 95-degree room, letting the heat maximize their flexibility and appreciation for January. Hatha and Vinyasa classes are also available. Yin Yoga instructors help students target the deep connective tissues surrounding the joints and the muscles around the hips, pelvis, and lower back by holding postures for 3–10 minutes at a time. Though the studio hosts educational workshops and special events, this Groupon is only valid for 90-minute yoga classes.

Surrounded by lush, green trees and grassy areas for lounging, Wild River Country overflows with 13 watery attractions such as the Cyclone, which sends groups of four tubing down a slippery slide for a big splash at the end. After getting the water and Poseidon's bickering out of their ears from the wave pool or the rip-roaring Accelerator, parents and kids can grab a bite to eat at the Cookhouse Grill and enjoy it at the picnic area. The Tad Pool lets the little ones splash and play, and the Lazy River lets tubers linger in the sun for a relaxed float while the Pipeline slings threesomes zooming bobsled-like down the slide in a raft. Family-oriented, and safe for all ages, the water park doesn't allow smoking or alcohol in the facility and offers clean restrooms and showers.
