Today’s Groupon: for $299, you get a one-night stay and three-course classic fondue dinner for two at the Fairmont Chateau Whistler (up to a $600 value). Buyers planning a winter getaway should note that this Groupon expires March 13, 2011.

This luxury resort nestled in the mountains comes equipped with ski-in, ski-out access to Whistler and Blackcomb Mountains, an indoor/outdoor pool, fitness room, steam rooms, sauna, and spa with four whirlpools to massage achy après-ski muscles. After a day spent exploring the mountain or carving out tracks in the hotel, guests with activity-boosted appetites and cheese cravings can head to The Chalet for a magical, melted meal. Start with a salad before moving on to your choice of tongue-encasing cheese fondue, including such options as Asiago & Fontina, Black Truffle, or Sundried Tomato & Cheese, and finish with a sinful chocolate fondue dessert accompanied by dippable fruit and sweets, an easier means to consumption than convincing fruit to dunk itself. The Chalet is closed every Tuesday and Wednesday. The welcoming staff at the Fairmont Chateau Whistler ensures that guests receive top treatment while keeping the environment in mind with numerous green initiatives that reduce the ecological snowshoe print on the earth.

Reviews

Rimrock Cafe
2117 Whistler Rd., Whistler, British Columbia
http://www.rimrockwhistler.com/

Today’s deal: for $25, you get $50 worth of fine fare and drinks at Rimrock Café in Whistler. This deal is good for all items on the a la carte menu.

The Rimrock Café is powered by the palate-pleasing prowess of chef and owner Rolf Gunther, whose transcontinental training informs a menu rich with fresh seafood and tender game. Embark on epicurean escapades with the chilled prawn cocktail, accented with accompaniments of avocado, tomato salsa and horseradish crème fraiche, or begin with a sautéed wild mushroom salad that wears a diaphanous gown of sesame vinaigrette upon its leafy luxuriance (all first course options are $13). Second course options (all $18) include the buffalo mozzarella, served with heirloom tomatoes, basil and olives, reminding diners why the delicate cheese was hunted nearly to extinction, while the papardelle pasta, emblazoned with a light lobster, goat cheese and cherry tomato sauce, carries a power-to-weight ratio that’s the envy of heavyweight boxers and competitive light bulbs. For the main course ($34), diners can choose the five-ounce filet mignon, or stray from the beaten path with the porcini mushroom encrusted caribou (add $12), chaperoned by a tongue-tingling mélange of truffle butter, spatzle, and porcini cream.

Rimrock’s overflowing trophy case includes a citation from Wine Spectator, and their climate-controlled cellars, home to more than 320 labels, affirm the primacy of their selection. The soft caramel light of two fireplaces bounces across lustrous tables of oak, suffusing the establishment with a mountain lodge glow that’s both the crux of comfort and the essence of elegance, like a onesie stitched from rose petals. Today’s deal allows you to redeem one Groupon for every two people at the table, making it a perfect escape for double dates or barbershop quartets.

Reviews
Frommer’s very highly recommends Rimrock Café and Oyster Bar, and Zagat rated the food extraordinary to perfection. Gayot gave the restaurant a good rating, and 91% of Urbanspooners recommend it.

Winner of Best Tapas at the 2009 Georgia Straight Golden Plate Awards, Bin 942 serves up a multi-award-winning menu of globally-inspired tapatisers —larger than standard tapas, but smaller than an entree — and small plates that are artistically crafted from sustainable, local, and organic ingredients.

Diners can knot their taste buds around a selection from the Tongue Twisters menu, which includes items such as golden beets in a truffle honey glaze ($8) and duck confit poutine ($9). Sharing ensues with tapatisers ($15–$17) such as Kobe-beef meatballs with black-truffle pinot-noir sauce and the prawn and scallop brochette with celeriac and tortellini. Body builders can bulk up on steamed Cortez Island mussels ($15), and greenery grazers can nibble gourmet salads ($10). As a complement to well-layered eats, Bin 942 features hand-picked wines, beers, and spirits to pair with its creative concoctions. The funky interior’s dazzling mirrored accents, eclectic artwork, and bright splashes of colour stimulate the eyeballs while sultry music whispers sweet nothings to enticed ears.

As you relax into a plush barber chair, the highly trained hair handler at Momentum will employ an arsenal of the finest products made exclusively for men to wash, snip, shape, and style your strands into an attractive ‘do to fit your lifestyle. Austere enforcers of the law may choose a neat-and-trim trimming, while their couch-crashing brethren can bring in their long locks and request a lush, early nineties look. In addition to a new ‘do, you’ll receive a close and traditional straight-razor shave using Truefitt & Hill luxury products to work up a hot healthy lather. You’ll also get 10% off the purchase of styling products to ensure your ‘do looks appropriately dashing in between dates or rollycoaster rides.

After a week in corporate combat, losing precious free time away from the big game or a bar in the name of beauty can sound painful. But shag snipping at guy-friendly Momentum Grooming is something to look forward to. Call ahead to schedule your appointment.
