One of the nation's largest drag-boat-racing competitions, the Ozarka Oklahoma City Nationals pits a string of specially designed top-fuel hydro boats against each other in a series of high-speed quarter-mile drag races. Unlike traditional drag-car racing, boats begin at a crawl before gunning their engines to toupee-toppling speeds of up to 250 miles per hour, nearly half the speed of light. A general-admission ticket grants you a cozy spot along the downtown river's verdant thoroughfare, where you can take photos of the action while remaining relatively still in your lawn chair. Though not included with this Groupon, you can sate seafaring appetites with vittles from the event's on-site vendors.

Board-certified dermatologist Dr. Sina Aboutalebi assuages skin woes for patients of all ages, reducing the appearance of acne among teens, wrinkles among adults, and frown lines among frowning line-drawings of adults. Botox is a purified protein that, along with a Kenny G mixtape, relaxes the muscles responsible for the formation of facial crinkling. Quick, nonsurgical injections of Botox can reduce the appearance of age-defining lines around the mouth, eyes, or camping on the forehead (a $13/unit value, number of units used varies depending on severity), and results can last up to six months or until being sworn in as president of the United States.
Dr. Carolyn W. Quist and Astrique fight fat cells with the powers of FDA-approved Zerona cold-laser technology, designed to reduce corporeal circumferences by an average of 3.5 inches. During each session, clients relax beneath a beam-slinging apparatus for 40 minutes as it glides low-light lasers over their waistline, back, hips, and thighs, emulsifying adipose tissue so that fat can sneak its way out of the body. The disintegrated lipid depots can then be absorbed by the body’s obsessively tidy lymphatic system and expelled through the body’s natural detoxification process and complex system of water-slides. The noninvasive treatment does not require any recovery time.
