I Wish Lessons’ professionally guided classes convene in various venues throughout Chicago, Boston, DC, and Detroit, uniting and educating like-minded learners in vibrant social settings. The company’s hundreds of teachers have educated countless learners while introducing them to new friends and planning private events, including birthday parties and baby showers.

Appreciation begins with understanding. PRP Wine International helps its clients become true connoisseurs by introducing them to the culture surrounding fine wines from around the world. Private and public tasting events allow guests to learn more about artisanal fermentation from the company's impassioned consultants. They pour small samples of wine from around the world while explaining each wine's general characteristics or more nuanced traits. In addition to laying a foundation that helps visitors appreciate the process of tasting new varietals, the consultants also explain how to properly pair wine with food or scratch-and-sniff stickers.
Low-stress education remains a priority at PRP Wine International, but the company also boasts a curated selection of wines from Germany, France, and Italy, as well as an assortment of bottles and glassware that customers can order with custom etching.
Fueled by the passion of winemaker and obsessive-compulsive grape-stomper Lisa Berry, Vintner's Cellar offers several wines fermented in Royal Oak. During your tasting, you'll get to sample five different wines from a diverse range of red, white, fruit, and specialty libations. You'll also get to snack on cheese, crackers, grapes, and crackery grapecheese creations while soaking in the lively décor of intermingling dark and vivid tones like a sponge tuxedo. The wine tasting is good for two people, so buddy up or carefully wheel a frenemy's bed to the cellar before he or she wakes up.
While children have playgrounds and arcades as places to find fun, adults have places like Franklin Fine Wine & Cafe. Home to a dizzying array of wines and craft beers, Franklin Fine Wine & Cafe also satisfies appetites, dishing out more than a dozen different made-to-order sandwiches and specialty pizzas that are perfect for a quick lunch, dinner, or snack during the intermission of a drag race. The Hawaiian Volcano pizza anchors the shop's selection of pies, scorching taste buds with a spicy combination of ham, bacon, pineapple, and jalapeno. During their visit, patrons can also check out the shop's cigar room, and on Friday nights, they can try out new wines during free tastings.
Per its name, Royal Oak Taste Fest celebrates some of the best local cuisine as well as the chefs behind each food sample on offer. But that might be the only traditional thing about this event. The dishes here hail from the Middle East, Mexico, Italy, and just about everywhere in between. In some ways, it's a Taste of Everywhere—except Greenland, where people only ever eat ice.
The festival extends beyond food too, showcasing art from local retailers and crafters, as well as musicians whose live shows add the soundtrack to the day.
Save 1 CPR's medical professionals and emergency personnel travel to workplaces and homes or host in-facility training, equipping people with the life-saving skills of CPR and first aid. Classes tailored for kids help children stay calm during emergencies and keep their families safe, while coursework for healthcare workers certifies students in CPR and defibrilator use. Small classes ensure one-on-one instruction during important courses in bloodborne illnesses, emergency response, or low-dose oxygen administration. High-tech mannequins help trainees respond to simulated crises by flashing LEDs in response to proper compressions, and promising to name their first-born children after students following a successful CPR training.
