Swing, summersault, and soar through the air on a trapeze with today's Groupon, $25 for a 90-minute trapeze class at Trapeze High (a $50 value). It's worth the 30-minute drive to Escondido to learn how to throw yourself off a platform 23 feet in the air and gracefully bounce butterflicticly through the heavens, performing spectacular acrobatic maneuvers. Learning trapeze tricks is an once-in-a-lifetime experience, and it's plenty of fun. Frequent trapeze binges are the reason Cirque du Soleil performers look so happy.

Founded by a triumvirate of rockers, Delirious Records bolsters budding stars' musical aspirations in a modern recording studio outfitted with top industry equipment helmed by professional engineers. Artists of any stripe lay down tracks like John Henry recording his first monster ballad, and Logic Pro 9 and Pro Tools 9 software suites filter out pops and hisses, clear up muffled voices, and itch scratchy riffs during the session. The studio's soundproof room, built by the same tech crew that fashioned Slash's Malibu studio, entraps melodies and repels outside distractions for a pristine soundscape. While bands thrash their strings, unleash thunderous drumrolls, and plead with accordions to sit quietly in the corner, a Delirious Records sound engineer captures every note and beat, developing each into a crystal-clear track.
