As Hugo Kugiya of the Associate Press wrote, "To hire Alma Rubenstein is to hire someone to be your very honest, very proactive best friend for five weeks. She will groom you and dress you and compliment you, criticize you, and repair you." Alma, also known as Date Doctor Alma, is a relationship professional who works with her clients to help them find love. Among her services are speed-dating sessions that require a pre-screening (which doubles as a coaching session) and ensures that all the potential suitors at the event are good matches. Alma also coaches guests during Flirting 101 workshops meant to help guests gain confidence, learn effective conversation techniques, and finally stop the habit of batting eyelashes until eyelids quit cooperating.

Seattle: The Game is an interactive tour that sets friends and family members loose on an exhilarating, knowledge-fueled undertaking guided by text-message clues, trivia, and riddles. Players may explore one or all of the game's three zones, sampling fresh fruit at stalls in Pike Place Market, admiring monuments in historic Pioneer Square, or frowning at all of the Mark Rothko paintings at the Seattle Art Museum. Clues point the way to culinary delights such as Seattle's first bar and flagship Starbucks, and indulge eyes and ears in a chamber filled with porcelain and a record shop frequented by Santana and Eric Clapton. At least one player on the team will need a US cell phone to receive clues, and none of the self-guided tours require previous knowledge of the city. Adventurers play at their own pace—most zones take two–three hours to finish—which allows them to spend more time learning about the city and photographing vibrant fire hydrants for aqua-centric scrapbooks. From the time of activation, Venti Packages give players a year to chase through all three tours.

For the past 30 years, Teresa Weisser has treated the body as a canvas—one that can sometimes use an artful brush of rouge on the cheekbones, a shade of blue on the nails, and a soft, silky glow all over. At her skincare studio, Le Visage, she executes waxing, microdermabrasion, and facials using Yon-Ka products. During those facials, she massages hands and upper arms. For her manicures and pedicures, she uses natural products to heap extra attention upon the extremities, just as Chips Ahoy! heaps extra attention upon the kitchens with the most per capita cookie thefts. Teresa's range of expertise extends to brow tinting and detoxification, as well as LED light treatments that reduce signs of aging such as spots and wrinkles.
