At the Sikorsky Memorial Airport, piloting pupils receive preflight training before jumping into their atmospheric steed to explore the Connecticut sky. During the 45-minute flight, fliers learn the basics of operating a Grumman Tiger aircraft and spotting ant-size Waldos from hundreds of feet above society. Toward the end of the lesson, students can take the controls to steer their gravity-defying vessel over the treetops and rolling hills of the countryside under the guidance of a flight instructor. For those who prefer a back-seat flight companion, this Groupon can accomodate one additional flier along for the glide.

The Dickey’s Barbecue Pit sign may be ubiquitous today as a spot for good ole’ Texas barbecue, but when Travis Dickey first opened his Dallas shop in 1941, the sign had to share space with advertisements to help pay rent. In the 70 years since then, the Dickeys have done well for themselves, with their initial store spawning a slew of franchises throughout the country. Though the barbecue at each outpost is no longer under the hand of one of Dickey’s descendants, each shop still smokes their own meats in-house to create the signature Texan flavor that infuses their briskets, pulled pork, and fall-off-the-bone ribs.
Meals can come in any size, from the a la carte sandwiches to platters that incorporate a chosen number of meats with a buttery roll, a pickle, ice cream, and two homestyle sides. Whether serving up their dishes in the dining room or packing them up for take-away or catering, the staff ensures that each client gets a taste of Texas home cooking without the hassle rubbing every dish on a campfire crock-pot.
Music swells within the local grassroots studio, bouncing off ceilings and reverberating through microphones. Matthew Vitti of Mother Brother Studios captures the sounds with an arsenal of recording gear. A musician himself with a passion for vintage gear, Matthew helps artists of all genres record albums or audition CDs.
Matthew uses his trained ear during session work, helping to arrange and compose pieces and choosing the right studio musician to bring in if need be. His network of professional musicians allows him to draft a technically proficient drummer for challenging percussion tracks or call in a soothing violinist when a rowdy drummer won’t go to sleep. The Studio extends their services to artists of all ages and genres.
