This state-of-the-art facility just opened in 2009, so you can expect shiny new Wii, XBOX 360, and PS3 consoles free of peanut butter and congealed orange soda. These systems are loaded with more than 100 top titles, such as Super Street Fighter 2, Tekken 6, Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2, DJ Hero, Guitar Hero 5, Madden 2010 and Left 4 Dead 2, among others. Because you can play multiple games on your three-hour Groupon, this is a great way to try several new titles for less than it costs to rent at a store or to create your own copy using your home PC and several notable voice actors. There are also cash-prize tournaments, so you can finally prove to doubters that it is both a legitimate sport and career option (this Groupon does not include tournament fees).
In 1965, Popular Mechanics ran a small classified ad for Brookstone, a new catalog company that packed its pages with functional products and detail-oriented descriptions. Brookstone quickly expanded to meet the high demand for its collection of “hard-to-find tools,” and opened the door to its first retail location in 1973. Today, Brookstone’s more than 300 nationwide retail locations allow customers to test-drive its ever-growing lineup of interesting products, which range from Bluetooth-enabled massage chairs to power adapters designed for international travelers and their electronic passports. Staying true to its roots as a catalog company, Brookstone houses an even larger selection of products, each waiting patiently to be shipped, on its website.
With a quick, electron-enabled visit to Picture It On Canvas's product descriptions and a photon-carried look at its how-to template, customers can dive into the world of art, interior décor, and science simultaneously. Select a prize photo (digital or analog) from your archives and then use the online order form to begin your photomorphosis. Picture It On Canvas's 16"x20" canvases are made of archival-quality material, which is thicker, more durable, and less likely to get stuffed into a roommate's back pocket and creased than the original photo-paper medium. Its thick-bar gallery wrap caresses the 1.5" thick edges of your piece with an attractive canvas-y embrace that's suitable for hanging without a frame. Consult the FAQs for more information.
