Your hands and feet never get a vacation, even when the rest of your body does. To keep these overworked extremities from overthrowing your head in a coup d'etat, treat them to today's Groupon: $35 for a manicure, pedicure, gourmet delectables, and wine at Burgundy Moon Spa & Wine House ($70 value). Located just 15 minutes outside of downtown Charlotte, this short drive makes for a nice little getaway without requiring you to pack a heavy suitcase.
Burgundy Moon uses high-quality products and practices for all its services. Spa technicians sterilize all instruments with a hospital-grade autoclave and use pipeless pedicure thrones for maximum hygiene. Your spa vintage foot-pampering session includes a signature Blush of Burgundy soak, your choice of sweet or spicy vintage exfoliant, and a warm paraffin mask to lock in antioxidants. The express vintage manicure will get your nails perfectly groomed and polished – perfect for hand modeling, digging victory gardens, and flirting in sign language.
On the day of your appointment, show up 20 minutes before your scheduled time so you won't feel rushed. You'll be handed a soft robe and slippers to relax in, and a secure locker for your belongings. While you wait, you'll receive a glass of signature wine (must be 21, or 171 if you're a rabbit) in the Relax Lounge, where you can also indulge in complimentary gourmet chocolates and lighter refreshments, such as tea and free-floating nitrogen. Use the opportunity to practice your foot-mouth coordination while your hands are getting their rejuvenating manicure.

Once In a Burgundy Moon
A burgundy moon is as deep and rich as a glass of wine from the spa of the same name. Many colored moons, in fact, have cultural – even portentous – implications:
Blue Moon: The expression "once in a blue moon," is derived from the profound unlikelihood of finding an individual younger than 115 years old who knows the lyrics to the 1934 hit "Blue Moon."
Red Moon: Portends werevampires. If you're not holding your breath in a solid silver bathtub full of garlic and holy water, you're already one of them.
Green Moon: After the ragingly popular nuclear testing fad of the 1940's and 50's, many well-reasoned scientists and politicians noticed that the proliferation of nuclear weaponry and materials had potentially negative social and environmental consequences. As a result, in 1967, all remaining nuclear weapons were fired at the moon, where they promptly reacted with the moon's natural photosynthesis, creating a luminous radioactive green glow. This reaction oxygenates our oceans, which, as Darwin teaches us, is where babies come from.
