Sky Zone's patented playing courts encourage guests to bounce off trampoline floors and angled walls during a slew of entertaining activities. After lacing up Sky Zone's special shoes, kids and adults can storm the courts for open jump, 3-D dodge ball or sky slam, where jumpers aim basketballs at hanging hoops. For more structured movements, instructors lead SkyRobics classes that can help burn up to 1,000 calories in one hour. Though not included with this Groupon, the facility welcomes groups for birthday parties, corporate events, and burning effigies of Isaac Newton.
Through their direct relationships with furnishing wholesalers, Casual Rooms’ staffers decorate bedrooms, dining rooms, and living rooms with hard-to-find, elegant tables, beds, sofas, and mattresses at competitive prices. The ever-changing inventory of upholstered goodies runs the gamut from the simplicity of a trusty futon for boarding out-of-town visitors to the opulence of a tufted Lillian sofa for holding screaming matches about Disraeli's political legacy. Marble slabs make up the mesas of coffee tables and dining sets, and mattresses cushion dreamers with pillowy layers of damask and memory foam.
Founded in 1964, Houston Antiques Dealers Association is just shy of antique status itself. The organization tirelessly promotes the exchange of beautiful, storied goods through its biannual shows, which gather many international antiques dealers and designers together and provide a portion of proceeds to many local charities.
Because the vendors sell thousands of wares—everything from vintage jewelry to heirloom china to antique robot vacuum cleaners—the show can be somewhat overwhelming. That's why the association encourages visitors to attend shows held throughout the year to learn more about antiques and gain the confidence to make informed purchases. Of course, HADA also makes sure its vendors possess a suitable level of expertise, display plenty of enthusiasm, and regularly don a thick coat of dust.
