Firstlight photographer Kier Smith captures compelling portraits, weddings, sporting events, landscapes, and more by harnessing his 25 years of experience in both traditional and digital media. For your session, a skilled shutterbug will journey to the location of choice to snap shots that suit your personality and vision. Whether you spend your 60 minutes smiling for a family portrait, tossing your hair for a head shot, or modeling the inside of a locker, skilled hands will optimize each resulting image in Photoshop, banishing blemishes and brightening teeth. The photos will then be pasted to a computer screen and hammered into the monitor to create a secure online gallery, from which you'll be able to choose two images for download, copyright included. Today's Groupon also includes a $25 print credit, enough for one 8x10", for buyers who yearn to physically hold a piece of imprisoned soul.
The handsome, 12,000-square-foot museum is home to four exhibition galleries and a permanent collection that focuses on the wealth of regional talent in the Northwest, in addition to housing Japanese woodblock prints and European paintings. Tacoma's own Dale Chihuly fills a gallery space with his permanent installation of playful and fantastical glasswork, much of it inspired by his love for the sea. Brush up on your goose-whispering skills at the Secret Language of Animals exhibit, a family-friendly flock of approximately 40 paintings, sculptures, and videos depicting rodents, birds, horses, dogs, crazy uncles, and more.
Instead of suppressing our dirt-dwelling flowery underlings, Grassi's has empowered them for more than 30 years through beautiful floral arrangements customizable to customers' wishes. Grassi's green thumbs offer floral arrangements in traditional, European, French country garden, and Oriental styles. Although this Groupon is good for in-store purchases only, you can take a look online at what Grassi's offers, including its seasonal bouquet of orange spray roses and a bright gerbera daisy with freesia and eucalyptus ($44). For a super-late (or super-early) Valentine's Day gift, opt for two dozen roses ($144.95). If you love oranges but hate that they're never available in flower form, choose the Citrus Sensation bouquet ($79.95) to quench your thirst for sweet-scented aromas. A bevy of other buds and blossoms are available at both Grassi's locations, so stop in for an eyeful of the efflorescence on display.
Enjoy a menu stacked with comforting American favorites in Varsity Grill's spacious and modern setting. Tickle taste buds with a sampling of the Varsity nachos ($9.99)—a beautiful mess of crunchy tortilla chips enraptured in a melty mass of pepper-jack and cheddar cheeses, fresh tomatoes, sour cream, guacamole, and green onions and topped off with your choice of chicken or beef—before marching onward to the Varsity BLTA ($9.99), an upgraded BLT featuring Varsity's specialty applewood-smoked bacon, lettuce, tomato, and avocado between the buttery cumulus clouds of a freshly baked croissant. The Desert Heat burger ($9.99) places a flame-broiled half-pound hunk of meat in a coating of barbecue sauce, bacon, jalapenos, and pepper-jack cheese and, like a desert mirage, will disappear quickly between your ravenous chompers. Omnivores may want to try the Buffalo chicken salad ($10.99) covered in blue cheese crumbles, tortilla chips, and blue cheese dressing, and herbivores can find solace in the veggie sandwich ($8.99), which plays the creamy textures of avocado, cucumber, sprouts, hummus, swiss cheese, and cream cheese against sharp notes of red onion, lettuce, and tomato.

At Abundant Health, your full-body tune-up consists of a 15–20 minute consultation followed by 20 to 30 minutes of treatment. One of the friendly, experienced acupuncturists will start with a casual consultation to determine your main pains and the goals of the treatment. By performing a tongue assessment, feeling your pulse, and checking for irregularities in your abdomen, your acupuncturist will be able to determine what treatment methods will be best for alleviating your malfunctioning microchip. Acupuncture treatment consists of inserting small, thin needles into specific points on your body called meridians. These points are situated along channels where energy, or Qi (like "cheese," without the tasty "se" finish), flows throughout the body. Many people find acupuncture a relaxing and restorative treatment that can effectively alleviate many conditions, such as pain, stress, asthma, allergies, headaches, menstrual cramps, back pain, infertility, and more.
