Emerald Downs possesses all the beauty, glory, and betting that occurs at America's classic horse tracks. Jockeys ride thundering horses toward victory as families picnic on the manicured grounds or view the action from grandstand seats or tables at The Rainier Restaurant. Yet there's more to do than watch and wager. Every Saturday, facility managers conduct free tours of the stables during the races. They can also point visitors toward The Gift Horse, a shop in which to pick up equestrian related souvenirs.

The self-declared "#1 in the #2 business," Pet Butler provides full-service cleanup for dogs and cats in individual yards, parks, and multifamily communities. After being deployed to your pup's outdoor powder room, one of Pet Butler's uniformed technicians will use disinfected tools to expunge any ordure from yards, kitty litter boxes, or pet toilets. Waste is taken off-site with the technician upon departure (unless local ordinances prohibit it), and Pet Butler's one-time-only service also includes a natural enzyme spray to dilute the effects of urine stains on lawns.

In an interview with The New York Times, Rover.com?s CEO Aaron Easterly describes his business as a means of connecting "dog owners who need care for their animals to dog lovers willing to provide it for some extra cash.? Thus, his business serves as a friendly alternative to ?lock[ing] their dog in cage for a week? at a kennel. Providing dogs with a real home or apartment to call home while their owners are away, Rover.com calls upon dog fanatics to showcase their walking, feeding, and ear-scratching skills by boarding or staying at the homes of local pooches.

With a network of more than 300,000 members across the country, Rover.com allows owners to peruse the online profiles of potential hosts and seek out a local caretaker based on reviews, personal preferences, and availability. Once connected with the pet-sitter, owners can schedule an optional meet-and-greet between hound and human to ensure a compatibility of personalities and rising signs. While on vacation, dog parents keep in contact with their four-legged friends and their sitters via Rover.com?s messaging service and photo updates. The company?s dedication to canine well-being extends to their Sit a Dog, Save a Life program, which grants the site?s sitters a chance to donate the entirety or a portion of their profits to a pet-related charity such as The Animal Rescue Site or the Coalition to Unchain Dogs.

Brookstone has thousands of practical, ingenious gadgets and games that make everyday life better. Their Big Blue live speaker uses Bluetooth to stream music or phone calls live from a smartphone, while a pocket-sized projector can be pulled out to show off the latest trip photos or funny video. That’s just the tip of the iceberg at this Pacific Place Brookstone outlet, where mini flying drones and augmented reality games are the norm – and guests can try everything out before they buy. That means sampling the classic massage chairs, checking the functionality of the wireless key finder by losing your keys in the overstocked shelves or just playing around with the latest obscure gizmo to kill a few minutes. You may not leave with something that you couldn’t have lived without, but anything you buy is sure to be fun, ingenious or downright silly.
