The first people to successfully paint the town red spent more time haphazardly assembling scaffolding and arguing over who got to be the foreman than enjoying the results. Take the planning out of carousing with today's Groupon for a 90-minute children's birthday party for 10 at Soiree in Collinsville, good for birthday celebrants 12 and under. Choose between the following options:
- For $85, you get a weekday party for your child and up to nine guests good on Monday through Thursday (a $170 value).
- For $99, you get a weekend party for your child and up to nine guests good on Friday through Sunday (a $199 value).
Inside a stylish setting, moms Misty Maxwell and Fawn Ozug mastermind Soiree's high-energy shindigs, maximizing mirth for munchkins and minimizing stress for guardians. The birthday girl or boy can invite up to nine under-18 guests for playtime activities such as bouncing on the in-house Jupiter Jump, a dress-up and makeup fashion show, or discussions of whether the moon landing was faked. Additional guests can attend for a $10 charge each, and those who do not participate in the activities may attend free of charge. Themes such as princess galas, rock-star bashes, and dinosaur rampages coordinate decorations, games, and activities to do battle against humdrum dental-hygienist-themed parties. Though parties do not include festive fare, celebrants will find plates, utensils, and napkins at the ready to use with cake, fizzy beverages, and caviar-topped ice cream provided by parents. After dancing and singing, noshing on eats, and opening presents, all partiers unwrap parting gifts provided by Soiree.
