Candle Lab's candles use soy wax, cotton paper wicks, and pure fragrance oils so that they burn cleanly and evenly for up to 60 hours. Choose from more than 120 gourmet flavors including Tupelo honey, fresh linen, toasted marshmallow, bamboo, wild orchid, and burnt sugar. Seasonal specialties such as mulled cider, hazelnut, and autumn leaves are still in stock (candles usually cost $15). This Groupon is also good toward Candle Lab's hand-stamped greeting cards, bath and body products, and other home-fragrance products.
Although he's now a fitness expert and personal trainer to the stars, Todd "The Bodyman" wasn't always in perfect health. Todd struggled with both childhood lung disease and a ballooning waistline before losing more than 40 pounds and reclaiming a healthy lifestyle. Not only did he overcome those obstacles, he went on to become a black-belted martial artist, serve in the US Army, and eventually marshal his expertise as an active-lifestyle consultant for NBC 4 television. Today, Body by Todd's online resumé sparkles with celebrities such as actor Danny Glover, NFL pro and sports anchor Cris Carter, and recording artist Marti Dodson.
It's not just Todd who has emerged victorious from personal health battles. His team of trainers—which includes new moms and former cheerleaders, gymnasts, and soccer players—has each eked out hard-scrabble victories against excess weight, losing 25–75 pounds each. Todd and his crew have helped more than 10,000 clients reach their fitness goals with custom programs, using straightforward nutritional guidelines and exercises that, like dinner parties spent rubbing elbows with famous Muppets, are easy on the joints.
Gallo’s Pit BBQ lives by three words: “low and slow.” Though it doubles as a good tip for limbo, this phrase refers to a Southern-style barbecue method that begins by cooking meat languorously over a pit filled with lump charcoal and wood. Before meat meets flames, grillmasters rub each cut with their signature spice rub to create a flavorful crust that complements its tender insides. Finally, they slather on a tangy and balanced barbecue sauce, which they perfected with more than half a decade of tweaking and tasting.
After settling down in tall booths or long benches in the brick-lined dining room, guests devour platters of brisket, pulled pork sandwiches, and pieces of chicken. They can also stick their forks into sides of made-to-order coleslaw and baked beans studded with bacon, brown sugar, and Kentucky bourbon.
The Cachet Salon has treated lads and ladies to rejuvenating makeovers and style resuscitations for the last 21 years. Strand sculptors Brandy, Christie, and Nina attack sloppy mops with skilled chops to create comely cranial topiary, offering an array of services to clients in need of both minor maintenance and major overhauls. Men’s and women’s haircuts with styling begin with careful coiffeur appraisals before the scissor-wielding snip savants commence their artful cutting ($39). Eyebrow tinting ($15) and eyebrow arch waxing ($17) accentuate the ocular canopies that keep the forehead from invading the rest of the face. A semipermanent coloring treatment using Paul Mitchell products ($48) is a wonderful, simple conduit for reinventing a tired look or establishing differentiation between twins who refuse to wear nametags.
Staffed by a creative crew of artists, graphic designers, and craftspeople, Social Confetti Events supplies a variety of event design services, including eye-catching, customizable photo booths for memorable occasions. Its sleek photo kiosks nestle within enclosed booths or stand out in the open, shooting at backdrops available in a number of event-complementing colors and fashionable patterns. A treasure trove of goofy props awaits subjects, and can be customized to match the event—for example, a "Yay for Love!" pennant aptly honor weddings and a tricornered pirate hat helps guests celebrate gold-coin-counting ceremonies. To forever cherish the evening, guests can leave with photo strips dispensed on site. A helpful attendant delivers the photo booth and sticks around to set it up, operate it, and break it down.
Social Confetti Events can also help clients with a variety of event design needs, including decor rentals, design assistance, and stationary services. Clients who book a photo booth rental are eligible for discount on these services.
