The Dominican University Performing Arts Center's creative spirit swells in a season highlighted with multicultural music, dance, and drama. As a string quartet, Ethel's Juilliard-trained musicians pluck a viola, a cello, and a pair of violins to their own original compositions and those of contemporary composers. These skilled performers join with Grammy–winning Native American flutist Robert Mirabal for a cross-cultural mélange of melody-making inside the Lund Auditorium, whose acoustics are regularly tested by opera-singing mimes.

In the late 1970s career educators Eileen and Raymond Huntington opened the first Huntington Learning Center in Oradell, New Jersey. Their goal was to take an individualized approach to education, adjusting instructional tactics according to each student's set of needs. Their success in helping K–12 students prepare for exams and improve grades and study skills quickly spawned franchises across New York and New Jersey.

Today, the certified Huntington tutoring staff utilizes testing and rubrics for assessing each child's skills, academic needs and potential for growth. The teachers even note the student's behavior in different testing and academic situations to craft a methodology sensitive to each child's learning style. Teachers also adhere to the company's code of ethics that stresses professionalism and confidentiality and encourages pupils to improve their grades honestly through dedicated study rather than shortcuts.

The staff at The Holistic BodyLab works to maintain long-term health with natural, non-pharmaceutical treatments. Led by in-house medical director, Dr. Joseph Maides, and natural medicine doctor, Kevin Gill, they blend spa treatments, such as facials, with holistic treatments, such as massage, in order to revivify bodies both inside and out. This mix of modern medicine and age-old spa treatments aims to both soothe and heal, just like all those old lullabies about mockingbirds curing babies' tension headaches.

Understanding that each child learns differently, the staff members of Sylvan Learning’s numerous study centers design custom lesson programs. Based on the results of standardized testing, diagnostic tools, and one-on-one interviews, the staff works with students to help them firmly grasp basic skills such as reading, writing, math, and how to remember facts without tattooing them to their chests. Programs target students in kindergarten through grade 12 and mold to various learning styles, helping kids feel more comfortable in the classroom. Afterschool or summer classes can ready high-school students for the rigors of the ACT or the SAT, or they can help students wow college-admissions officers with their superior writing skills, exemplary test scores, and willingness to arm-wrestle the school mascot.

Wet Nose's indoor space features plenty of windows and natural light and all participants must pass temperament and personality testing to ensure the safety and well being of dogs, clients, and staff. Wet Nose's staff of trainers will also lead dogs outside to do their business, helping pups maintain good house-breaking habits while overcoming their fear of ladybugs.

With more than 31 years of experience filling Chicagoland's frozen statuary needs, Nadeau's Ice Sculptures makes party luges that offer aesthetic and tactile pleasure to drinkers of chilled beverages. Liquors and mixers poured down the ice-formed spouts will chill and combine, emerging at the end of their frozen journey as new liquids. When ordering, Groupon holders can choose between two options: the Party luge or the Suck It Up luge. The Party luge combines simplicity and elegance, with two entrances and two exits, each connected by a long trough, giving all poured ingredients plenty of time to learn one another's middle names. Those who value complexity will appreciate the Suck It Up: three pour areas with chutes running through solid ice down to a trough on the bottom, from which mixed drinks may be sucked up through a straw. Whichever luge is chosen, Nadeau will bag and box the ice for convenient pickup and transport and will include a drainage tray for mess-free ice amusement.
