The inimitable Dolly Parton beams her bright gifts of immaculate song-craft and prodigious showmanship at concertgoers, illuminating and delighting audiences as she embarks on her Better Day World Tour. Ordained with the power to wring tears from stoic Cyclopes, this Appalachian renaissance woman has wowed music fans with her boundless talents for more than four decades. From Coat of Many Colors to her new album Better Day, Dolly’s songbook unspools like a palm-reading of America that forecasts joy as she puts on an extravagant show laden with hits and costume changes. Purchase up to four of today’s Groupon and bring the whole clan, or treat rival bobsled teams to a night of sing-along splendor.
The three courses presented with today's Groupon allow players to put their long and short games to the test on a selection of the region's finest links, including two that made Golfweek magazine's list of the best courses to play in Connecticut. The Golf Club at Oxford Greens—designed by esteemed architect Mark Mungeam—carves its way through 680 acres of woods west of Naugatuck State Forest to create a memorable 18 holes of play. At the Gary Player-designed Lyman Orchards Player Course, players wind their way through majestic trees, apple orchards, and talking pumpkin patches in a time-honored pursuit of par, and Pete Dye's Wintonbury Hills course challenges divot diggers with a varied combination of tree-lined fairways and links-style open holes. Set against a lush backdrop of rolling forests and manicured greens and situated far from the hustle and bustle of traffic and residential homes, each course's serene surroundings peacefully erase all memory of phrases such as “double bogey,” “water hazard,” and “eaten by a moose.”
Cheshire Pilates Studio's diamond-sculpted fitness experts employ the principles of stability to tighten torsos on both mat and machine. During five one-hour core-strength Pilates classes, core constructors will harness their own body weight in a series of slow-moving posture changes designed to center the body and tone muscles. Props, such as the arc barrel, flex band, Joseph Pilates's hairpiece, and more, enhance the midriff manipulations by increasing the solidity and exactitude of the movements.
The deep swell of rolling balls and cacophony of falling pins punctuate conversations at family-friendly Amity Bowl. After retrieving shoes and selecting spherical pin-bashing implements, pairs of guests will assume command of a lacquered lane for ten frames of relaxed collaboration or energetic competition. Partake in traditionally lit pin-thrashing, or revel in the dim splendor of cosmic bowling, which, like most leisure and every incident of smearing toothpaste in a friend's hair, occurs during the weekend. Two frosty cups of bubbly beverages may help reinvigorate wearied bowlers during the seventh-frame stretch. As an automated mouth at the lane’s end continues restocking its hourglass-shaped teeth, bowlers may also visit the snack bar to sink their own teeth into classic bowling-alley munchies.
