Performers feed off the energy of their audience, and when there is no audience, there is no energy. To stop this problem before it starts, venues turn to Fill A Seat Phoenix, a business that supplies its members with tickets to events that still have seats to fill. Members enjoy a year of entry to popular shows, sporting events, and concerts, bulking up the audience more suitably than a litter of chihuahuas dressed in tuxedoes. Upon joining Fill A Seat Phoenix, members receive access to a list of upcoming events, which range from large-scale productions to local restaurants, golf courses, and coffee houses.

It goes without saying that Ukranian model and actress Oleksandra Nikolayenko-Ruffin knows a thing or two about beauty. But the 2004 Miss Ukraine Universe winner is also the brains behind her self-named spa, a tranquil and luxurious facility that earned a Five Star Diamond rating from The American Academy of Hospitality Sciences. Housed inside the Treasure Island Hotel and Casino, the wellness sanctuary pampers guests with a massive menu of services that enhances everything from skin and body to scalp, hair, and nails.

Marble tile accents the walls of the spa, where cushy recliners congregate with other upholstered furniture inside separate lounges for men and women. Visitors to the spa typically check in at least 30 minutes early so they may change or cartwheel into a robe and sandals and warm up in the steam room, sauna, or whirlpool.
