After years of painstaking research, scientists have determined that a few pints of beer can make a dramatic impact on public speeches, wedding receptions, and the ability to perform years of painstaking research. Score some liquid genius with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of Southwestern pub fare and libations at J.D.'s Lounge in the Scottsdale Plaza Resort.
With the atmosphere of an English pub conveniently located on this side of the pond, J.D.’s Lounge boasts a generous grub selection in addition to nearly a metric ton of beer and liquor options. The menu ranges from standard pub starters such as sliders made with Angus beef ($9.50) to Tex-Mex entrees, including chicken machaca chimichanga with rice and beans ($12.95). When only light snacking is in order, the unlimited house popcorn is both satisfyingly crunchy and free as a bird out on parole. In the spirit of international cooperation, traditional pub selections such as scotch and draft beer rub imperial elbows with their Southwestern cousins, the Caballo Blanco margatini ($10.75) and Blooming prickly pear margaritas ($11.50).
For those who delight in the thrill of slightly spirited competition, J.D.'s Lounge keeps all pool tables and Golden Tee arcade games open for play until the pub's generous closing time of midnight daily. Five televisions throughout the wood-paneled pub also broadcast a range of sporting events, from football to hockey to synchronized banana peeling.
The Salon & Day Spa at The Scottsdale Plaza Resort
A lush estate of 40 acres near Camelback Mountain surrounds The Scottsdale Plaza Resort, which, in turn, surrounds the Salon & Day Spa at The Scottsdale Plaza Resort. Inside, the staff greets every visitor with a robe and slippers to wear during a recommended cool shower to initiate detoxification.
The packed service menu plies muscles with six types of soothing and therapeutic bodywork and an infrared sauna, and salon professionals master current haircut and nailcare trends. Stylists deftly transition from creating complex weaves for female clients to trimming beards for gentlemen, and aestheticians tailor men's skincare regimens from products rich with jojoba oil, papaya, and soothing cherry enzymes that ensure prompt, rugged five o'clock shadows.
