Though machines have replaced the human touch in many tasks, there's still nothing like an old-fashioned hand-shaved lawn or marathon-runner-delivered text message. Accept that some things are better left to nimble living digits with today's Groupon to Fast Eddie's, located in Bucktown. Choose between two options:
- For $40, you get five complete hand car washes (up to an $80 value).
- For $45, you get five complete hand SUV or minivan washes (up to a $90 value).
Sloppy jalopies are reborn as clean-cut coupes thanks to the thorough vehicular makeover artists at Fast Eddie's. During the regular exterior and interior service, Fast Eddie's meticulously detailed staff will sponge-bathe grimy car-shells, scrub sullied tires, and wipe windows and mirrors. Auto-cockpits get the full treatment, with mats cleaned and vacuumed and seats and dashboards diligently dusted. A hand-dry finish gives the newly refreshed surfaces a pleasant glow. Visitors can respect automotive privacy while their cars are pampered by relaxing in Fast Eddie's waiting area. Free Wi-Fi keeps laptop-luggers plugged in, and old-school arcade games absorb kids so they don't get curious about how their shoelaces taste. Fast Eddie's is even pet-friendly, keeping a cache of dog treats to serve the canines that typically drive in on their covered wagons.
Though Fast Eddie's features some discounts online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
