The tango—it's classy, seductive, and fun. The enthusiastic instructors at Modesto Tango Argentino give students all the rhythmic tools needed to join in the excitement. They teach the graceful dance during group lessons, allowing all guests to learn with their partner or dance with fellow students while making new friends.
Lucky Fest helps revelers safely usher in America's greenest holiday by gathering 25 custom-built pubs along a single stretch of 11th Street. Each makeshift mead hall has taken on a unique theme for St. Patrick's Day. Guests can visit Grace O'Malley's Fantastic Voyage to enjoy a drink at a 16th-century pirate-themed alehouse built upon a converted clipper, then swing past MacGowan's Karaoke Bar to belt out a favorite tune or deliver a rousing pep talk backed by Pointers Sisters tracks. Funny bones are tickled by visiting comedians from around the country during a drop-in at Patty O'Flynn's Comedy Shop, while the Irish Bar Bar Shop's barber chairs welcome visitors to stop in for a quick trim before they head to The Docks to pose for a souvenir photo with the Sea Maiden of the Celtic Sea.
A team of talented instructors hones fret-savvy fingers in a variety of musical genres in Valley Music Institute's in-depth private lessons. Budding guitarists glean easy approaches to the tunes and techniques of their favorite styles, shredding the power chords of rock, the complex progressions of jazz, or the subtle hair-gel stylings of classic metal as teachers borrow from their collective training to lavish students with tailored instruction. Beginner students can spend a single session exploring a new instrument or hit the ground running with a trio of lessons to build on new knowledge and refine finger finesse. Though not included with this Groupon, six-string scholars can extend their sessions into the realm of superstar training with the center's comprehensive rock-band program.
Any veteran of the first-person shooter genre of video games knows that half the fun lies not only in blasting away at opponents, but also in customizing your loadout, memorizing level layout, and ultimately mastering team tactics. The creators of World Extreme aim to bring this experience to life, packing their 10,000-square-foot arena with dense urban-style terrain. They arm players with their custom radio-frequency-style weaponry, in the shape of M4s, MP5s, or AK-47s. They program each weapon to simulate specific circumstances, from free-for-all battles to team bomb-setting exercises. Unlike at most laser-tag arenas, when a well-placed shot knocks a player out of the game, they must scour the field for a respawn box to reenter play, adding extra stakes to the contest.
As they enter the training circle at Curves, female guests come face-to-face with the smiles of other women. And just as points on a circle share a common distance from the circle's center, workout participants share the experiences of those nearby by trading stations throughout the 30-minute training session. One minute is spent on a piece of strength-training equipment built for feminine frames and designed to work two opposing muscle groups with a single movement. Exercisers then move on to a recovery station, where they run, jog, or dance to maintain heart rates and keep platforms in place during momentary losses of gravity.
