As the male bowerbird so amply demonstrates, building a sturdy and elaborate home is the surest way to attract a mate, until it's inevitably used as kindling by ignorant campers. Hone your own habitat with today's Groupon: for $4, you get one ticket (up to an $8 value) to attend any day of the Tacoma Fall Home and Remodeling Show, which runs from Thursday, October 28 through Sunday, October 31, at the palatial Tacoma Dome. Though the company offers a discount of $2 on its website for weekday tickets, this Groupon is a better deal and is valid on all days.
The Tacoma Fall Home and Remodeling Show showcases more than 400 of Washington's top remodelers, landscapers, and exhibitors—all of whom will share their expertise with professional contractors and amateur DIY-ers alike. More than 40 pros from the Master Builders Association will share their knowledge in demonstrations and seminars throughout the weekend, giving you the know-how you need to finally finish your apartment's moat. Driving directions to the Tacoma Fall Home and Remodeling Show can be found here; parking costs $10 per day. You can also travel to the event via the Tacoma Link.
