Midnite Sun & Cruise's red-light therapy treatments reinvigorate weathered skin, imbuing it with a smooth, youthful sheen. Vertical booths emit red light waves and motivational fight songs to kick-start the body's collagen production, enhancing skin's elasticity, suppleness, and strength. Additionally, treatments can soothe acne-prone skin, reducing redness and speeding up blemishes' healing time. For skin tighter and brighter than a sequin-studded ice-skating ensemble, approximately four sessions per week are recommended. Though not covered by this Groupon, Midnite Sun & Cruise's helpful staff is happy to suggest additional in-store serums to amplify results.
Rocket Express, located on the campus of Reeths-Puffer High School, joins forces with Y-Knot Embroidery to emblazon school emblems across a variety of merchandise. Pupils can assert their high-school-student status with the 100% cotton of a Reeths-Puffer t-shirt or hooded sweatshirt, which help justify a tendency to sleep until noon. Stow scalps beneath a pink ladies Port Authority cap, or sip milk from a 22-ounce refillable tumbler. The shop can customize much of its merchandise, embroidering items with names, numbers, or locker combinations.
The store opens its doors during lunch on school days, from 11 a.m. to 12:35 p.m., and after school on Tuesdays and Thursdays, from 2:45 p.m. to 4 p.m. The public can also select their spirited wares during basketball games, choir concerts, and indoor events.
The friendly folks behind Y-Knot Embroidery stitch and screenprint names, logos, or favorite phrases onto a range of accessories and clothes for individuals, businesses, teams, and volunteer groups. The staff can personalize any accessory or article of attire—which can include brightly colored tees, hats, coats, and work-worthy button-ups—in their entire inventory. They can spiff up a polo shirt with an embroidered monogram, or distract potential thieves hoping to steal your beach bag with a screen-printed math problem.
To give back to their community, the staffers promote cancer awareness, stocking items such as Kid’s Cancer Storys, which benefits Grand Rapids’ Van Andel Institute.
At Your Plate or Mine, both seasoned glazers and greenhorn glammers turn unadorned pottery and glass fragments into one-of-a-kind masterpieces. Pottery prettifiers of all ages choose from more than 500 pieces of bisque ($4–$55), ranging from plates ($8–$12) and mugs ($8–$12) to figurines ($9–$12). With their blank slates in tow, guests pick out paints and, like the Beauty and the Beast animation team, bring the ceramics to life; if painter's block sets in, a friendly staff can offer tips and suggestions.
