The hairdressers at Toni and Guy Hairdressing Academy may be students, but they undergo plenty of training before they hit the salon floor. In fact, by day two of their cosmetology schooling, they perform their first haircut—on a mannequin, of course. In the salon, they work under the watchful eye of experienced, licensed instructors and put their acquired skills to use. Their services include hairstyling—haircuts, deep-conditioning treatments, highlights, all-over color, updos—as well as waxing, manicures, and pedicures.
Landmarks of standup for decades, Connxtions Comedy Clubs remain mainstays for up-and-coming comics and national stars, with a roster of past performers that includes Sinbad, Drew Carey, Tim Allen, D. L. Hughley, and Rob Schneider. Headlining comedians, many seen on national television, keep the venues teetering Thursday–Saturday nights, whereas Wednesday nights host improv spectacles and open mics where rookies can begin their ascent into stardom or descent into miming. While refueling chuckle tanks, duos and groups can split a savory appetizer, such as fried pickle spears or buffalo popcorn shrimp, or enjoy a potent cocktail at the bar.
Astronaut cooks have made numerous attempts to wrangle hamburgers into space-ready meals, from dehydrated-pickle discs to vacuum-sealed burger bottles. Enjoy what our starry-eyed brethren never can with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get $25 worth of burgers, sandwiches, salads, and more at Dale's Bar & Grill, located in historic uptown Maumee.
Prism GlassWorks is a full-service silica studio offering a wide range of elegant pre-made glass pieces, as well as hands-on classes and workshops for students of all experience levels. As a sneak peak of their regular fused-glass pendant classes—and with Groupon fun-seekers specifically in mind—the Prism proprietors have put together a special fused pendant-making workshop (many convenient times are available). During the two-hour session, you'll get to carry your innermost designs and aesthetic impulses to fruition, whether they are abstract conglomerations of color or miniature images of a beloved filing cabinet. After hand-selecting and combining glass noodles, stringers, and dichroic thingamabobs, you'll have created a raw pendant that's ready for the finishing flames of the kiln.
The roar of rushing of water echoes through the towering walls of Splash Bay Water Park, where slides, rivers, and pools stretch across a 35,000-square-foot indoor facility. Kiddie pools ripple with whippersnappers clambering upon play structures and tumbling off giant lily pads, and inner tubes careen down a lazy river. After snaking and weaving riders across the rafters, three lofty slides fire their passengers out into pools below, and adults can lounge under a warm waterfall pouring into the giant hot tub.
Red Cross–certified lifeguards survey the scene all the while, quick to blow whistles at horseplay or beluga whales that have snuck through the hot-tub jets. On the upper deck, a snack bar peddles snacks and drinks, and arcade games glimmer, hum, and dole out prizes. Dried off guests can take advantage of the park's onsite hotel, complete with family suites and a restaurant.
